Sealing off the back of a timber framed area under the house

Job description

Posted 1 month ago

We have a rat/rats in our basement bedroom ceiling. We have tried to
exclude them with ply outer barrier at deck edge, but what is needed is for the outside of the timber frame (underneath the house) to be sealed off. There is adequate space to move around but it requires someone more agile than us oldies to do this job.
We have sealed half off the 8 m stretch of building where they can access, but the balance area is too hard for us to do - we need a young person experienced in such things. We also need the rats captured/trapped before it is sealed off (plenty of pest management people that can do this).

THe downstairs bedroom was excavated into the hillside and when built the
builder built a timber frame inside the block wall. The block wall went to
just above the adjoining ground level under the rest of the house. The
builder unfortunately did not think about blocking off entry to the framed
area so they have a somewhat easy access in, some of which we have sealed

We have galvanised tin sheeting to nail into place over the entry
area, just need someone able to do the work - it will be a bit of a grubby
job! Estimate it would take someone 2-3 hours, perhaps less.
