Hi: Are the end openings of corrugated roofing supposed to be closed off in some way to prevent wasps or mice for from getting in for example? I have attached a picture. Thanks

All the manufacturers that I know offer foam closures to seal these voids. I would recommend using them to prevent entry by birds and insects and to prevent blowing rain or snow from entering the roof cavity.

I have had Starlings make nest in holes in my roof and I used the spray expanding foam to fill up the holes and if the foam expands out from the hole I just cut it off with a knife to make it look good.

I would not recommend doing this without checking with the roofing mfr first.
