One of the very best ways to avoid pest infestations in your residential or commercial property is by controlling the amount of moisture in your building. Most insects, especially those who infect homes and other properties, cannot survive without moisture, and buildings that have excessive moisture are a breeding ground for pesky critters.

Our expert pest control team has been assisting home and business owners with moisture control and crawl space encapsulation for many years, and we look forward to helping you safeguard your property.

Understanding Moisture Problems and Pest Control
Excessive moisture in your property, any amount over the average of 18%, can attract a variety of pests. Water infiltration can cause the growth of dangerous bacteria and mold and can cause wood to rot, leading to eventual structural damage.
Some insects to be especially aware of include:
- Powder post beetles
- Wood-boring beetles
All of which are wood-destroying organisms.
The very best way to avoid the risk of attracting dangerous and destructive insects is by taking measures to decrease the amounts of moisture in your home.
Proactive Moisture Control in Crawl Spaces and Beyond
When people think of moisture infiltration, they often think of crawl space. Crawl spaces are narrow spaces in a building that are unfinished and unoccupied, usually beneath the first floor or in the attic. They are appropriately named crawl spaces because they are typically no more than a meter wide, providing no space to stand up.
Moisture may enter the crawl space through damaged pipes, or rainwater from the outside. Crawl spaces are susceptible to moisture as they are often close to the building's exterior. Unfortunately, this also means that crawlspaces often become home to insects.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
A great way to safeguard your crawl space against insects is by encapsulation. In simple terms, encapsulation is the process of installing a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier in your crawl space. This barrier will cover the entire area from the floors, foundation walls, and ceiling.
Once the encapsulation is completed, a dehumidifier will often be installed to control a healthy humidity level, keep bugs out, and stop the growth of dangerous bacteria.
Blitz Exterminators, LLC has been completing crawl space encapsulation for many years and have the tools and expertise to complete the installation correctly. For more information, don't hesitate to get in touch.
