Home Insulation Benefits

There are many reasons why TAP® pest control insulation has revolutionized the pest control industry and outperforms traditional insulation. Four of the main benefits of this service provided by your local insulation company are:

  • Reduces costs of energy bills

What is TAP® Pest Resistant Insulation?

TAP® Insulation is a top-of-the-line product that outperforms traditional insulation in keeping structures thermally sound but also preventing and eliminating pests. It is made of recycled newspaper, making it an environmentally-friendly choice. Pests cannot build up a tolerance to the borate product infused in TAP®, which means that once installed, it never needs to be replaced. In other words, as long as the insulation remains in the structure, it will continue to kill insects.

What is pest control insulation made of?

TAP Insulation consists of more than 80% recycled paper and contains natural borates to kill off pests.

How much do home insulation services cost?

The market, location, and size of the structure all affect the cost of TAP installation. Investing in this pest-resistant insulation will pay off in time with its energy-saving abilities.

How does TAP® Insulation affect pests?

The boric acid in pest control insulation will cling to insects that make contact with the pest control insulation. When pests groom themselves or each other, they will ingest the borates. This will disrupt their metabolism and kill them.

TAP Insulation is blown into the attic by a certified insulation company and can be installed over existing insulation.

Who can install home insulation?

Does pest-resistant insulation kill rodents?

No. The boric acid contained in TAP Insulation only affects insects.

Is TAP® Insulation dangerous?

The boric acid in TAP Insulation does not pose a threat to humans or pets. It is not flammable, either—in fact, the borates serve as a fire-retardant!

Does home insulation lose effectiveness over time?

No. Once installed, the borate-infused pest-resistant insulation does not wear off.

How long does home insulation installation take?
