Mouse in the House

Mouse in the House!

“ ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a ….” EEEEK!!!


Was that the word you were looking for before you were so rudely interrupted?? Well, dear reader, I am afraid that is probably incorrect. When it comes to a mouse in the house, he’s seldom a solo invader. You see, a mouse leaves powerful urine scent trails that send a high alert to their other field-wandering friends. After all, the never-ending smorgasbord of Christmas cookie crumbs, cakes, and other delightful holiday goodies left sitting out and lining the corners of the kitchen floor, is simply too good not to share. No, unfortunately, it’s not a mouse you’re dealing with. It’s MICE.

Your Next Problem

If you’re not able to remove all existing mice within your home immediately, and successfully pinpoint and seal all areas of access, those mice will rapidly reproduce. The gestation period for a mouse is 19-21 days, with each litter consisting of 3-15 mice. Furthermore, a single female mouse can bear anywhere from five to ten litters a year, so those numbers can add up pretty quickly.

Damage & Disease

Now imagine all those teeth gnawing away at your wires, your plumbing and your insulation – a major potential fire hazard! Then there’s the soiling of so many precious family keepsakes with their concentrated urine and feces. After that, think about the disease, germs, and even fleas that mice may be carrying. Had enough? Even if you try to put the thought of them out of your mind, there it is; that incessant chewing and gnawing you suddenly hear while you’re trying to sleep. Now have you had enough?

Talking About TAP

Whether you’re hot or cold natured, it’s hard to stay comfortable and keep your energy bills in check if you don’t have adequate insulation in the attic.  But many homeowners don’t know how much is enough, and they’re not aware of the products available to them on the market today.  One of these products—TŸAŸP (which stands for Thermal Acoustical Pest Control insulation)—is a revolutionary green insulation for new and existing homes and buildings.  It very well could be just what you’ve been looking for!

Adding green (environmentally-friendly) insulation to your attic saves you money.

Adding green (environmentally-friendly) insulation to your attic saves you money.

What Exactly is TŸAŸP Insulation?

This loose-fill insulation is made from recycled paper that incorporates a borate-based (mineral salts that are mined from the earth) pest control into the product to keep you warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer and helps eliminate pests year-round.  TŸAŸP offers two sustainable solutions in one innovative product: an environmentally responsible insulation with superior thermal and sound-deadening properties and a unique method of pest control.

What can TŸAŸP Insulation do for my Home?

TŸAŸP insulation is a multi-faceted product that provides many benefits to homeowners:

  • It’s environmentally friendly.
  • It controls pests.
  • It delivers fire resistance.
  • It saves money and energy.
  • It’s permanent.
  • It absorbs sound.
  • It provides a perfect fit every time.

Insects can’t build up a tolerance to TŸAŸP (which is a problem with many organic biological spray treatments).  The insulation controls ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and other pests.  Outside noise from lawn mowers and traffic are also minimized by TŸAŸP, providing you with a more peaceful living environment; insulated interior walls reduce annoying noises (e.g., flushing toilets and running appliances) inside your home.

Are there any Money and/or Energy Saving Benefits?

To put it simply, TŸAŸP saves you money by decreasing your energy bills.  It keeps your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter; this equates to year-round comfort.  Warm air moves easily through porous insulations (e.g., fiberglass insulation), however, TŸAŸP’s increased density retards this convective heat transfer.  In addition, since TŸAŸP eliminates the leaks and drafts associated with ordinary insulation, your home’s heating and cooling systems won’t be forced to cycle as often and can be smaller (which will save you even more money).

Insulating your attic reduces the amount of energy needed to heat and cool your home, thereby resulting in lower energy bills and increased energy conservation.  TŸAŸP is a patented natural fiber insulation treated with boric acid to provide it with fire-retardant, environmentally friendly, thermally superior, sound deadening, and pest control qualities.  It is also the only stabilized insulation on the market today that can make pest-control claims; it’s registered with the U.S. EPA as a labeled pesticide and is the only pesticide that has earned the Energy Star designation.  If you have any questions regarding TŸAŸP insulation or any other products and/or services offered by Honorguard Pest, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
