3 Types of Pests That Can Be Deterred by Crawl Space Encapsulation

Most homeowners know by now that crawl space encapsulation is a simple change you can make to protect indoor air quality and protect the structure of the house. However, there is one other issue that can come along with having an open crawl space that has not been encapsulated: pests. If you have yet to get your crawl space tended to, you could be leaving your home vulnerable to certain types of pests. Here is a look at some of the types of pests that make their way into the area beneath your home.  


Rodents, such as mice and rats, are easily one of the most prevalent pest problems in crawl spaces beneath homes. A crawl space that is not encapsulated will give these little critters easy access to food, water, and shelter. Plus, many rodents who find their way into a crawl space will also find their way into the house. Rodents have sharp and very strong teeth, so gnawing through a small corner of the subfloor or a spot where a water pipe enters the house is not an issue. Encapsulation seals off the entire space so rodents cannot get into the crawl space in the first place. 


No one enjoys having these eight-legged arachnids hanging out in the house, but this is unfortunately where spiders prefer to be. Spiders love having a nice dank and dark area where they can hide out and gain entry inside the house if they need to find food or hang an egg sack. An encapsulated crawl space is tight and secured, so even these sneaky little insects that seem to squeeze through anything have a hard time getting inside the space. 


If you have ever lived in a neighborhood where you had close neighbors, you may have "caught" cockroaches from a neighbor at some point. These annoying pests can and will travel. Their resiliency to nature, the outdoors, and even typical pest control methods make them extremely hard to contain to one home if there are neighbors nearby. Unfortunately, many cockroaches make their way into the house through a crawlspace that leaves the house wide-open for an infestation. The bugs can climb, but they are most likely to make their way to your home via the ground. So protecting the house from the bottom up is your best plan of action. 

If you don't want these critters in your home, contact crawl space encapsulation services.
