What Are Crawl Space Pests?

When pests invade, they typically seek refuge in the home’s crawl spaces and other dark or secluded areas.

Typical crawl space pests in Alberta include:

  • Ants
  • Spiders
  • Cockroaches
  • Termites
  • Crickets
  • Mice
  • Rats

Once inside your crawl space, insects and rodents can nest in your insulation and destroy wooden structures, jeopardizing your home’s foundation. They also carry serious diseases, creating an unsafe living environment.

Why Your Home Has Crawl Space Pests

Several factors might lead to pests in your crawl space:

  • Unsealed vents or cracks in walls
  • Exposed soil floors
A crawl space pest that lives in the home can damage more than the crawl space

Addressing these issues with a trained professional will deter further pest infestations in the home.

Cory came to my house, thoroughly evaluated the situation, explained the options to me, and patiently answered all of my questions. He is amazing. There was a crack in my basement wall that needed to be repaired. Paul (I think) did a good and clean Job. The repair was scheduled and completed exactly as was described to me. Great team! I’d definitely recommend this company to others.

The service provided was excellent. From the start when we installed the tester to the end when we got the mitigation system installed. The installers came on time, cleaned up, and was super friendly. Definitely will contact them again for our next house!

Excellent service. Sales was pleasant and quote was thorough enough to proceed. The crew that came out to excavate, and install the interior and exterior basement systems was absolutely top notch – their work was neat and tidy, they showed up on time, and worked hard. To top it off, they (and all the folks involved) have to be the most pleasant contractors I’ve ever dealt with – and this is house #5 for us over the years! Thank you, Basement Authority. Highly recommend.

Yesterday we had our sump pump service by Ben and was very pleased with the work. He was knowledgeable and took care in his work. He was very friendly and explained what he was going to do. Very good at his job and we’ll ask for him if we need any work done in the future.

Fantastic service from start to end. Professional sales call, follow up, and terrific work crew on site. Did an amazing job of raising and leveling my driveway. The crew took great pride and were even excited with the outcome. I HIGHLY recommend their work.
