Crawl Space Bugs Are Unsavory - And Could Be Symptoms of Crawl Space Damage
You know they might be down there. And you know what they might be doing. That’s one of the many
reasons why you go in your crawl space area as little as possible. But neglect the bugs in crawl space
areas too long, and you could be missing some major signs that you’ve got eroding foundation going on.
We know it sounds strange to say, but Bugs in Crawl Space areas might actually be beneficial to the
long-term health of your home, if their presence prompts you to do what is necessary to eradicate them
from your foundation.
Unfortunately, many homeowners only worry about getting rid of the symptoms of crawl space damage, like
bugs and rodents, instead of addressing the things that cause these critters to gravitate towards your
home’s foundational areas. And while that might help you sleep a little better at night, it won’t do
anything beneficial for your home, and your crumbling foundation.
Addressing the Reasons Why You Have Bugs in Crawl Space Areas of Your Home
Think about it. If you’ve got creepy critters under the floorboards of your home, you’ve probably got
prime conditions for bugs and rodents there. These nasty crawlers and flyers can spread disease and
filth like there’s no tomorrow, especially in places where they can survive, thrive, and multiply. If
your crawl space is always dark, damp, dank, musty, moldy, and all other kinds of unsavory, you will
attract unsavory creatures like rats, mice, termites, cockroaches, hornets, cave crickets, centipedes,
millipedes, carpenter ants, beetles, and even bigger critters like opossums, snakes, and more.
If you want to add even more funk and gasses to the mix, you can go the route of setting of bug bombs,
or spraying tons of harmful pesticides. But a better long-term solution might be to eliminate the
environment that seems to be drawing in the unwelcome guests. If you would like to know more about
waterproofing or encapsulating your crawl space, FoundationRX is happy to help!
