What Are Crawl Space Pests?
Crawl space pests are unwelcome guests like insects and rodents that infiltrate the dark, moist, and secluded area under your house. These pests are often discovered due to the odors and mess they produce.
Common crawl space pests include:
These pests are particularly attracted to areas with high moisture and accessible entry points. Once inside, they can nest in your insulation, harm wooden structures, and create conditions conducive to more infestations. This can weaken your home’s structural integrity and pose health risks, as pests leave behind waste, bacteria, and foul odors.
Prompt action is essential to maintain a safe and healthy home.

Addressing these foundational problems is key to making your crawl space less inviting to pests and safeguarding your home.
