Pests in Your Crawl Space

The presence of pests in your home, particularly in your crawl space, can be a cause for concern. These uninvited guests are attracted to the moist, hidden areas under your house, which can lead to significant property damage and compromise the healthiness of your living space.

For over 30 years, we’ve been the trusted choice for homeowners to improve the safety and stability of their homes. 

This page will guide you through understanding why pests are attracted to your crawl space, the importance of addressing these issues, and how our top-of-the-line crawl space encapsulation techniques can assist. 

What Are Crawl Space Pests? 

Pests in crawl spaces are unwelcome guests like bugs, rodents, and other small animals that infiltrate the dark, 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 often drawn to areas with excessive moisture and accessible entry points. Once inside, they can nest in insulation, cause harm to wood structures, and create conditions conducive to more infestations. This endangers your home’s structural integrity and health, as pests leave droppings, bacteria, and bad smells

Addressing this problem promptly is key to maintaining a healthy and secure living environment.

Effectively tackling these fundamental issues is essential in creating an environment that is less appealing to pests and in safeguarding your home from potential harm.
