Pests in Your Crawl Space

The presence of pests in your home, particularly in the crawl space, is a troubling sign. These uninvited guests are attracted to the moist and hidden areas under your house, which can lead to substantial damage and unhealthy air quality.

This page will enlighten you about the reasons pests are attracted to your crawl space, the importance of addressing these issues, and the effectiveness of our top-tier crawl space encapsulation techniques. 

What Are Crawl Space Pests? 

Pests in crawl spaces include various unwelcome creatures like insects, rodents, and others that infiltrate the shadowy, moist, secluded space under your home. 

Typical crawl space pests include: 

  • Spiders 
  • Termites 
  • Ants 
  • Cockroaches 
  • Millipedes 
  • Centipedes 
  • Crickets 
  • Silverfish 
  • Beetles 
  • Mice 
  • Rats 

These pests are particularly attracted to areas with excess moisture and accessible entry points. Once inside, they can nest in your insulation, damage wood structures, and create conditions conducive to more infestations. This not only compromises your home’s structural stability but also poses health hazards due to the pests’ droppings, bacteria, and odors

Addressing this issue promptly is essential for maintaining a healthy and safe living environment.
