Heavy Humidity trapped within a crawl space causes mold, mildew and become a draw for rodents and insects like termites and cockroaches whom require moist conditions to survive. The wind and sunlight in the outside environment will eventually disperse humidity but in a crawl space it tends to get trapped. Pests, like mice, drawn to the moist conditions, will chew though weakened foundation walls to get inside the crawl space. They will then move throughout the home using the wall cavities as sort of a hidden highway- where along the way they chew on wires, pipes and other building materials.  Crawl Space Encapsulation is designed to control these problems.
