Inspecting and helping solve crawlspace moisture or powder post-beetle problems starts with an accurate assessment of the space. We can help you identify the source of the problem, and then make recommendations for how to address it. This could include proper ventilation and dehumidification, as well as sealing any cracks or openings to the outside. We can also help you with any necessary repairs, such as replacing wood framing or installing plastic sheeting. Finally, we can provide pest control services to help eliminate the powder post-beetle infestation.
Powder Post Beetles
Powder post beetles are small insects that attack and feed on a wide variety of woods, including hardwoods, bamboo, and dried wood products. The adults lay their eggs in cracks, crevices, and other small openings in the wood. The larvae then hatch and feed on the wood, creating fine powdery dust. These pests can cause extensive damage to wooden structures, furniture, and other wood items.
Wood Decay Fungi
Crawlspace wood decay fungi are types of fungi that grow on wood in crawlspaces, causing wood rot and damage. They thrive in dark, damp, and humid environments and can cause serious structural damage if left unchecked. They can be identified by the distinctively patterned rot they create on wood, as well as the musty smell they produce. Proper ventilation and maintenance are key to preventing the growth and spread of these fungi.
