Crawl Space Pest Control

How Do Pests Get Inside Your Crawl Space?

Sealing off your crawl space or basement is an integral part of crawl space pest control. Pests like rodents, termites, and other insects love excess moisture provided by basements and crawlspaces. In fact, some pests like termites, mosquitoes, and silver wigs require excess humidity to survive. 

Most of the time, pests get into your home through gaps in your home's structure. Sealing up these gaps can help prevent pests and excess moisture from entering the home. 

What Damage Can Pests Cause?

Despite their size, pests can create a ton of damage. Once they're inside your home, they are a nuisance and can be both laborious and expensive to remove. The termite industry is a billion-dollar industry annually.

Additionally, pests spread disease, chew through your home's walls, destroy furnishings, and are unsightly. 

Crawl space pest control is a cost-effective measure to protect your home's structure and its occupant. 

Crawl Space Pest Control with an AprilAire Dehumidifier

If you already have pests, you’ll first need to contact an exterminator. They can clear out the existing inhabitants of your basement so you can focus on making sure they don’t come back.

Then, an experienced professional can close off any gaps or openings, and recommend a solution for preventing excess water from entering the basement or crawl space. These methods usually include basement waterproofing or crawl space encapsulation.

Another tool for crawl space pest control and excess moisture is an AprilAire E070 dehumidifier. These units are made specifically for crawl spaces. An AprilAire dehumidifier can also help remove any excess moisture inside your home that may be alluring to pests.
