- Manufactured from bifenthrin infused plastic.
- Easy installation with patented tool which controls depth of insertion.
- Designed so it can be used with the stainless steel Protector Weep Hole Screen for ultimate retrofit protection against mice, bees, wasps, cockroaches, spiders, snakes and bushfires. (Protector Weephole Screen needs to go in first.)

- Easily replaced when necessary.
Small-ish snakes will readily go inside your weep holes where they can get access to the insides or your wall cavity. Mice and rats are the same – particularly in winter they will look for ways to enter your building to nest or be protected from the elements.
These plastic weep hole protectors are unique because they are embedded with a pesticide that can kill/deter termites from entering your home where they are placed. If termite management is your goal then the manufacturer recommends replacing every 2 years as the chemical treatment will breakdown after this period. However replacement is a decision you would make they will still remain an effective physical barrier to other pests irrespective of the chemical lifespan.
You may also like to take a look at the stainless steel version – also available at this shop. The manufacturer recommends that you install the stainless unit first and then add this unit in-front of it. You certainly can do this unit by itself or take the recommendation and include the stainless unit up to you. :-)
