Your crawl space can serve as natural breeding grounds for bugs and other pests. They love to live in dark, damp spaces. Common bugs in these environments include roly-polies, millipedes, centipedes, cockroaches, ants, and silverfish, and these bugs serve as excellent food sources for rodents and snakes. The bottom line is critters in your foundation are bad, and they shouldn’t be there.
Besides the fact that bugs in your crawl space is an unwanted problem in general, it could be a clear sign that you have moisture issues in your basement. A completely dry crawl space floor is less desirable than a damp crawl space floor for most of these bugs, and without the little bugs, the bigger critters can’t survive.
Unfortunately, the problem doesn’t just stop there. If you notice an increasing number of bugs in your crawl space, chances are they may work their way into your house as well. If you start to notice a lot of unwanted visitors, it may be time to assess the moisture levels and relative humidity in your crawl space. Let the experts at AquaGuard keep your house bug-free.
