2020 has been a crazy year but we have finally made it to the spooky season! Yes, you head spooky season; where kids go out and trick or treat for candy, dress up in scary costumes, and eat too much candy. While historically this day is filled with scary myths that disappear when the night ends, the reality is our homes are typically always filled with spooky items. These items are out of sight and therefore out of mind, but we’re going to give you a list to watch out for!
The more damp and dusty your crawl space is, the more pest you will attract. This fact becomes more true as the weather gets colder, animals need a shelter and the moistness of your crawl space attracts them. Your crawl space is the home of termites, cockroaches, spiders, silverfish, rats, and mice! Do you think it can’t get any worse? Larger animals also make it into the mixture families of raccoons and possums have also been found in crawl spaces.
While having a set of animals live in your basement is disturbing, we don’t really access the consequence of their inhabitants. Cockroaches spread diseases and contain an awful smell. Termites feed wood causing it to deteriorate over time. Mice contaminate your crawl space with feces and reproduce. Lastly, raccoons have a notorious history of containing rabies and possums bring fleas into your home.
Can you see why your crawl space is constantly in spooky season?
