TAP Insulation for Pest Control
For those wondering what T·A·P insulation is, it is a natural fiber insulation treated with boric acid and other proprietary formulations to produce fire-retardant, environmentally-friendly or green, thermally superior, sound-deadening insulation with pest-controlling properties. T·A·P is acceptable for use around humans and pets, but deadly to cockroaches, silverfish, ants, termites, and many other crawling insects. T·A·P is a U. S. EPA-labeled pesticide.
T·A·P Pest Control Insulation is the result of a revolutionary merger of two well-respected technologies—natural cellulose insulation and natural borate pesticides—creating Thermal, Acoustical & Pest Control Insulation, the only stabilized pest control insulation. As part of a total pest management package, T·A·P can be used to cap existing insulation in attics, or can be installed in the attics, walls and crawlspaces of new construction. Because it is a blown in insulation it is relatively easy to do.
T·A·P pays for itself quickly in reduced energy costs and then continues to save you money for the life of the structure.

Pest Control Benefits
T·A·P helps control pests in your home. Annoying pests can breed and form colonies in the attic and behind walls, coming out at night, seeking food and water. More than just annoying, they can severely damage a house. T·A·P is an EPA-labeled pest control insulation, treated with pure boric acid. Although deadly to many insects, T·A·P is acceptable for use around humans and pets. T·A·P eliminates self-grooming insects, where it is installed, upon contact. Insects cannot build up a tolerance to T·A·P, and it never needs re-treating. T·A·P controls ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and other insects listed on the EPA label.
Money and Energy Savings benefits?
T·A·P saves energy. T·A·P saves money by decreasing energy bills. It keeps homes cool in summer and warm in winter for less money: Comfortable year-round. Because T·A·P is denser than fiberglass insulation, air does not move through it well, so it resists heat transfer by convection, as well as conduction and radiation. And since there aren’t the leaks and drafts associated with ordinary insulation, mechanical systems don’t work as hard and can be down-sized, further saving money. Areas in the home maintain more uniform temperatures between floors and ceilings, upstairs and downstairs, even next to exterior walls. Comfort. Conservation.
Sound Control Benefits
T·A·P reduces unwelcome noise from outside and helps create a peaceful haven inside the home. Insulated interior walls reduce annoying noises (such as toilets flushing and appliances running) inside a house.
