Most pests are attracted to moist, humid environments. Moisture problems inside your home, then, can be a big contributing factor for infestations and other problems. Issues with leaks and excess moisture commonly originate in crawl spaces. Up to 50% of the air in your household can flow upwards from a crawl space, which is why it’s so important to keep this space free from moisture problems with professional crawl space pest control services. While there are many methods to keep moisture problems in your property under control, crawl space encapsulation is regarded as one of the most effective methods.
Garrie Pest Control is proud to provide crawl space moisture control installation services to keep our customers safe from pest problems linked to excess moisture in the home.

- Broken or dysfunctional gutters, downspouts, or drains
