The Tar Heel crawl space teams come across a lot of unwelcome pests during installations, but one pest, in particular, is extremely common to find in an open, vented and improperly sealed crawl space… Snakes.

Due to the damp ground, snakes find shelter in crawl spaces to protect themselves from the summer sun and convert the area below into their home. Snakes also enjoy insufficiently sealed crawl spaces for the free grub buffet. The dark, damp area also provides an ideal environment for rodents, insects and other pests to enjoy.
