Rodent infestation in Crawl Space

Where do the rodents and pests hide?

These dangerous creatures like warm and damp areas such as your crawl space or the basement of your house. They also feed on food supplies like trash and dirt. Another reason why the crawlspace is the most appealing place for these animals is the presence of plenty of entry points. They come from the gaps between the foundation and framing and will stay there due to the crawl space providing the most favorable environment for them.

Signs that you have pests or rats in the crawlspace:

  • Foul smell
  • Presence of pest and rodent excreta
  • A lot of holes and gaps
  • Scratching noises coming at night
  • Dirty place

How can you stop pests and rodents entering into your crawl space?

Crawl space pest control or rodent removal is an overwhelming task. Hence, if you make the place unfavorable for these unwanted animals, you can save yourself a lot of time and money. Pests and rodents have soft cartilage therefore, they can squeeze their body and enter from very small openings. If entry points are fully covered they will not find their way to enter your house.

Having said that, the obvious solution for this root problem is getting a rat slab installed in your crawlspace area.

Rat slab is just like the way it sounds – a slab of concrete poured over the unstructured crawl space to give it structural, clean, and solid a appearance. Unlike the rodent removal process which is performed after the place gets infested, rat slab is a preventive measure that deals with the issue in advance. It blocks all the holes and gaps in the crawl space, making it smooth, clean, and easy to be crawled. It acts as a barrier for the harmful animals that are digging into your crawl space from the outside thus keeping them away.

Why do you need a rat slab installed in your crawl space?

  • It saves your crawl space from the groundwater entering it and causing damage.
  • It keeps your crawl space clean and healthy.
  • It helps to improve indoor air quality creating a fresh and clean environment.
  • Keeping your crawlspace clean and dry makes the basement unfavorable for the unwanted creatures.

Seeing the above benefits it is quite clear that rat slab installation is the best way to protect your home from rodents, pests, and other animals invading your house.

It is important to have a rat slab installed in your home as the harmful pests and rodents can enter your house through very small openings. It acts as a covering that seals up all the gaps in your house foundation so that no organisms can enter into it.

This is the solution that takes care of the problem by fixing the root cause. So, if you are tired of pests or rats in the crawlspace, get a rat slab installed and protect the health and well-being of your house and family.
