One minute you’re sifting through your crawl space to put away a seasonal decoration, the next, you’re quickly exiting because you’ve spotted an unwanted critter turning your property into a home. After finding these pests, you may realize you need to fix your crawl space to ensure your belongings are safe. Here’s what you can do to keep those pesky critters out once and for all.
What Pests like Crawl Spaces?
When it comes to crawl spaces, don’t count out any small animal, however, critters such as rodents, rats and mice are common culprits. Even smaller animals like termites, carpenter ants, hornets, powderpost beetles, crickets and more can also find their way in. Once animals are in, they can cause serious damage such as eating through wiring, air ducts and any wooden structures. The worst part? Once they’re in, they’ll likely find their way into the rest of your home as well.
Prevention, Prevention, Prevention
Don’t wait to fix your crawl space before it’s too late. Taking preventative measures can save you a lot of money and hassle in the long run. Seal all open holes and openings, no matter how small they are. Managing the air condition in your crawl space is also key to ensuring pests can’t get in; too much moisture may motivate bugs like roaches and ants to gnaw at your wood. Making sure your crawl space is critter-free is a great way to protect your home from the ground-up.
