Pests in Your Crawl Space 

The presence of pests in your home, particularly in the crawl space, is a cause for concern. These unwelcome guests are attracted to the moist, hidden areas under your residence, leading to possible insulation, wood, and structural damage and an unhealthy atmosphere that can leak into your home.

What Are Crawl Space Pests?

Common crawl space pests include:

  • Millipedes 
  • Centipedes 
  • Crickets 
  • Silverfish
