Identifying Crawl Space Pests
Crawl spaces often become unintended hosts to various pests, including insects, rodents, and other small animals. These uninvited guests infiltrate the secluded, moist, and dark area beneath your home.
Commonly crawl space pests include:
Pests gravitate toward areas with abundant moisture and effortless entry points. Upon infiltration, they can establish nests within insulation, deteriorate wooden elements, and create an environment conducive to additional infestations. Such activities undermine your home’s structural soundness and pose health hazards by accumulating fecal matter, bacteria, and musty smells.
It is essential to tackle this problem swiftly to ensure the safety and wellness of your living environment.
