I have a cinder block foundation and where the garage is, there is some damage where I can actually see daylight from inside the crawlspace, which is most likely why it's very damp in there not to mention the bugs.
What is the best type of cement I should be getting to fix this? I just want to pour it in the hole to fill the bricks from bottom up, and also patch the mortar cracks.
I've been told to use a certain type of cement as well as a cement glue. Mix the glue with the cement to make it bond better to the brick. What product should I look for at the hardware store?
Also what kind of product would I be looking at for parging, same thing? I want to fix all around the house just so it looks better, and to protect from further damage. In general it's structuraly sound.
The biggest damage I am looking at is this.

I also want to fix the crack between the driveway (cement) and house. There seems to be a highway of ants going from there to the grass. I don't know if they're going in the house or not, but may as well eliminate that crack to remove the possibility.
I've never worked with cement before so any tips would be great.
