Intrusion of Insects in Your Crawl Space
Dirt floors in crawl spaces are the perfect way for insects and other critters to enter your home. If not properly maintained, these bugs can nest and multiply right underneath your foundation. Certain bugs may even try to eat through structural beams that can lead to uneven floors or foundation problems. Once pests enter your crawl space, they can follow electrical wires or pipes into your home. Bugs and rodents can infest your crawl space. Most crawl spaces are a feature of older homes, and insects can enter the area from the outside through cracks or your crawl space door.
Prevent Bugs from Entering Your Crawl Space
It’s good to be ahead of the game before insects invade your home. Make sure to seal all openings around your crawl space no matter how small. Also, make sure to control the moisture in the area. High levels of moisture can attract pests and make it easier for them to nest.
