Crawl Space Encapsulation


Moisture plays a huge role in pest control and keeping your home healthy and comfortable. When humidity conditions rise above 60% relative humidity for extended periods of time mold, mildew and bacteria growth is stimulated. Our DriTime Aprilaire dehumidifier provides a consistent percentage of humidity for you. Crawlspaces or normally damp areas of the home should be protected from high moisture in order to reduce the amounts of pests in your home.
Your biggest investment is your home or business. Make sure you are protected from the dangers of moisture. Make sure that your home or business is free from pests or health concerns.
Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions serve the Sussex and Kent counties in Delaware, the Eastern Shore of Maryland and the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Crawl Space & Basement Systems

A DriTime Crawl Space Encapsulation System will solve your crawl space moisture problems for good. We eliminate the problems of having a wet or damp crawl space can cause. We stop wood-rot fungus which caused by moisture and of course, bugs- especially termites- in their tracks. And our long term DriTime Service Plan means the solution is permanent. Enjoy a drier, healthier and more energy-efficient home thanks to our unique understanding and experience of successfully treating and eliminating crawl space moisture.
Unlike a crawl space, it’s pretty easy to tell when your basement has moisture issues. Whether it’s water seepage or standing water due to flooding or poor drainage, moisture problems in the basement can be even more dramatic and stressful than they are in a crawl space if for no other reason than your basement is something you use every day. From storage to extra living space, basements serve many needs in your home so don’t let water get in your way of using your basement the way you want when you want. And we can help.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Customer Experience

Good afternoon Dean. At this time, I would also like to thank you, your employees for an absolutely fantastic job done with my recent crawlspace encapsulation. The two young men from Bennett Termite started early in the morning, and stayed into early evening, finishing the entire tear out and installation in about 10 hours! And, left my property spotless! Two days later, Justin and Wally, arrived with the dehumidifier, and had the installation process done within a couple of hours. Justin explained the workings of the dehumidifier and the temperature/humidity parameters very clearly.

You have an excellent crew of workers. I would be remiss in not mentioning you, Dean, for coming over, checking out my crawlspace, and giving me the estimate – – it was surprising that you were able to get yourself bent over far enough to get into the crawlspace!!!!

Thank y’all again for a job well done…Dr. Andrejs Strauss

Customer Expereinces

I needed a termite inspection for my VA Home Loan. Bennett Termite schedule the inspection quickly and showed up on time. The inspector was very polite and informative. Their fee was better than I expected. I would recommend Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions to anyone in need of the service.

Very happy with your service and price. Always done quickly and very flexible on changes of schedule.

Thank You!

Our first experience with Bennett Pest Control was approximately 4 years ago when we encountered our first “bed bug infestation” when a tenant moved out of a rental home. We had called a number of Pest Control companies who used a chemical treatment and would need to treat for 2-4 months. After calling Bennett Pest Control and meeting with Bruce, he explained the heat treatment, the cost, and the down time.

The heat treatment would kill everything in the home (ie; roaches, ants, spiders, bedbugs and their eggs) down time would be 6-8 hours, and cost was less than one month’s rent. Still, not sure as what to do, Bruce said “Let’s do this house, if you still are not convinced, or we have to come back for any reason, we will discount the cost.” We will also guarantee our work, and have a canine inspection upon completion.

Needless to say, the ONLY people I call when there is any signs or even a “maybe possible” sign of a bedbug when completing a move out inspection is Bennett Pest Control . They are fast, courteous, professional, and less expensive than having 2+ months of down time with no guarantee. We have never had to have Bennett Pest Control go back to re-treat. It is always 100% pest free after one treatment.

Thank you!

“I just wanted to let you know that I had the opportunity to speak with Keven today and he was fantastic. I was told that I had an issue at a rental property of mine in Fenwick. I needed you all to come out and treat it but I couldn’t be there. Kevin called me and explained everything and answered all of my questions in a way that made me feel like I was truly being taken care of. Keven is the reason I will remain a customer in the future.

Please thank him for earning you another customer.”

“I was very impressed with the professionalism of Robert and Dean yet also how kindly they treated me and my family. We were devastated to find that we had a problem. They assured us that we are not alone and would do everything they could to help us. Robert gave us all the information we needed to know with how to handle the situation. Under Dean’s care, Bennett acted swiftly and had our problem, and our stress level, under control in no time. We are so grateful to them for their service.”

“I want to take the time to let you know how I feel about your company and its performance. I provide Property Management for an extensive number of homes in both Delaware and Maryland. I have chosen Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions to service these rental properties as well as my personal homes because I have noticed the attention to details, the professional service and the response to my needs that the company provides. They respond quickly to any call and provide the monthly service at a very competitive rate. I can rely on Bennett to get the job done the first time whether performing routine maintenance or providing immediate service for problems.

I am a realtor and am in the unique position of seeing the types of service provided by a variety of pest control companies during the home inspections for the sale of properties. It is this knowledge that led me to switch all my managed properties and my personal homes to Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions.”

“I just wanted to write a quick note and tell you that I had a great customer service experience with Jared. I dealt with him on the telephone and I was very pleased with his degree of professionalism over the phone. He was warm, friendly and assured me if I needed anything, to just call back. He is definitely an asset to your business.”

“I’m sorry that it has taken me so long to acknowledge one of your employees. His name is Fred and he did a termite inspection for us back in Jan. of this year. Fred found a significant source of heat loss and security in our conditioned crawlspace. It turns out that our builder had not sealed the crawl space from the outside elements. Fred felt the draft and reported it to us. We have been very happy with your company for almost three years now and could not be happier. All of your employees are first rate and your service is top notch. Thank you for running such an efficient business!”

“I have been very satisfied with Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions’ overall attention to service and my needs. I had a kitchen full of ants and company arriving. I called Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions and they came to my aid as quickly as possible and saved my weekend.”

“I have been impressed with Dean and his team at Bennett Termite and Pest Solutions for my monthly home pest control services. Their professional service and knowledge is essential to protecting my home and property without risk to my children and pets. With their monthly service, the appearance of my lawn has improved and I am able to enjoy my yard without the annoyance of ants, flies, and mosquitoes.”

“We are so happy that we have Dean Bennett and his crew back on our home protection team. Dealing with a man who knows his stuff leaves us relaxed. It is both a rarity and a relief to deal with your company, confident that our best interests are your priority. Thank you for bringing your quality service to our home and to our community.”

“Right Property Management has done business with Dean Bennett for years and we find him to be extremely Customer Service Oriented. It is not unusual to call Dean with a problem and he says, “I’ll be there in a few minutes to check on it”. Can’t do any more than that for your customers.”

“Not only are Dean and his company quick to respond, they have even come out the same day we called to help us out. The company is easily reached, timely, responsive and friendly. We highly recommend Bennett Pest Solutions.”

I’ve been impressed with Bennett Termite Pest Control from the moment I called them hysterically. Their response time was the same day in addition to the next day coming out again to treat the interior of my house. I am very particular and cautious about people entering my home, but when the technician came to my home, he was professional, hardworking and reassuring my rodent problem would disappear. I not only chose Bennett because they are locals to the area and know how to treat problems, but they heard the urgency in my voice to help. I can rely on Bennett to get the job done right the first time.

Myron has treated our home the past 3 quarterly services and also performed the annual termite inspection today. He is always on time and calls ahead once on his way, per our request. Myron comes to your door and discusses all needs (old/new) and what services he will be providing. He is professional and thorough. He ends his service with a knock on your door and reviews all services and items addressed and any issues found and how he treated them. He communicates well with the customer and represents Bennett Termite and Pest Solutions well. We continue to have no real issues as a result of Bennett Termite and Pest Solutions program AND Myron's expertise!

Very professional, thorough, prompt, a pleasure to deal with!
very personable, polite, and competent.
i have dealt with Bennett Termite & Pest Solutions since 2017. Robert Trout in sales has been to my house several times. Due to his knowledge and professional approach I have given my business to Bennett for all termite matters. Recently he returned to my house to discuss mosquito and tick control. As expected he provided an honest appraisal that required a different approach for my property requirements than Bennett Termite could satisfy. This is exactly why Bennett gets my business. The sale is not the mission, it is a satisfied customer. I do not hesitate to recommend Bennett Termite for pest solutions.
