An impenetrable layer for rats that you can plant on top of.
Standard Pest serves customers all over the NY Metro area. Many of our customers have burrowing rodents on their property. Installing Geo material is a long term solution to this problem. From the manufacturer – “Burrowing animals such as rats, chipmunks, gophers, groundhogs and nutria can dig beneath the ground and ruin landscaping, chew through cables and destroy dikes and levees. In order to prevent these animals from wreaking havoc beneath the ground, you need XCLUDER GEO.
XCLUDER GEO uses coarse stainless steel fibers bound to a porous geotextile to form an impenetrable barrier against burrowing pests. XCLUDER GEO installs under landscaping and allows grass and small plants to grow through, thus being an invisible force against pests. XCLUDER GEO is non-toxic and safe for the environment, and is very easy to install. XCLUDER GEO’s stainless fibers are non corroding, making GEO last indefinitely.”
Here’s a video of an installation:
