Some of the most unwanted, disgusting pests are attracted to a very unnoticeable substance- moisture. Unbeknownst to most people, moist, damp areas can attract and foster the growth of a disturbingly large amount of insects and even mold. As a result, it is of utmost importance to routinely check all areas of a home or structure for signs of moist, rotting wood. In areas such as bathrooms and kitchens that are almost constantly damp, all spots that could potentially harbor moisture should be kept dry; in addition, they should be well ventilated and dry to prevent the growth of mold to the furthest possible extent. Manufacturers produced crawl space vents with these potential hazards and pest attractive abilities in mind; these vents can efficiently ventilate a vast area without needing to be placed close to each other. By utilizing crawl space vents, the area which contains them will be well-ventilated and free of excess moisture - Vent Crawl Space

Benefits of Crawl Space Vents

German cockroaches are attracted to humid areas while America cockroaches are attracted to moist areas. Basements and other areas near the ground such as the foundation of a house are areas capable of being great sources of moisture and humidity. Basements and foundations are also ideal access points for many pests to enter your homes, including subterranean termites, which seem to adore invading basements. In order to protect your home and set up a preventative measure against pests, crawl space vents are important. Crawl space vents will keep air flowing through your basement or foundation to prevent any areas from becoming damp. Because the air will also be constantly circulating, the chances of humidity levels becoming high enough to attract numerous pests will decrease. In addition, crawl space vents will also dry and air out crawl spaces that one may need to crawl through to apply pesticides for a certain pests. After installing crawl space vents, the probability of mold, mildew, wood rot, condensation, moisture, or humidity accumulating will significantly decrease.

In addition to being an overall, very beneficial supplement, vents are available in a couple of different colors to better suit the specific color of a basement or foundation. One of them, the Powered Temp Vent, is also compatible with a special type of thermostat that can be appended onto the vent to close it whenever temperatures drop too low. There is also a humidistat that will turn off the fans of the vent at certain humidity levels.

How to Place Crawl Space Vents

In most termite control treatments and trenching, crawl space vents are placed along the foundation or basement walls to facilitate treatment and also act as a preventative measure from future pest infestations. Depending on the foundation or basements, one vent should be placed every fifteen linear feet or on every side of the structure. If it is not possible to install a vent on one side of the foundation, one may simply place the accurate number of vents on the remaining three or more sides.

Q. What company should I choose one power spraying Cy kick, the other power spraying a product called demand cs. Both coming on a quarterly basis
I've decided to use a pest service on my home in Austin tx, I know the heat breaks down product as well as rains that we get in the Austin area every once in a while, I've broke my decision down to two companies, one is saying the product they will power spray is Cy-kick. The other company says they will be power spraying the product Demand cs. My main bugs that we are dealing with are scorpions, spiders, Beatles, and an occasional wasp.. Both companies are around the same price both wanting to come out quarterly. What's the main differences and if you were in my shoes and with your expertise, which product would you choose to be treated on your home for those specific issues.
A.   We recommend using Demand CS because it is a micro-encapsulated product. Therefore, Demand CS has a longer residual time.

A.   There are several different products for Dust Mite control. Look into Steri-fab, which is a spray that does not have a residual but is great for an initial treatment or one time treatment. Also, Bedlam Bed Bug Spray has dust mites on the product label that is a great product as well and has a short residual of about 1 week to 2 weeks.
