Here’s The Deal

TAP® is Thermal Acoustical Pest Control Insulation.

TAP® helps protect your home. Insects cannot build up a tolerance to TAP® as they can with organic biological treatments, therefore you never need to re-treat the insulation. TAP® controls ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and other pests listed on the EPA label.

TAP® is an EPA-registered pesticide containing boric acid. Technical grade boric acid, the active ingredient in TAP®, is found in common household products such as saline eye wash solution, detergents, and the food we eat. Although deadly to many insects, TAP® is acceptable for use around pets and people.

TAP® helps you save money and decrease your energy bills. It will keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Comfort. Conservation. Comfortable Conservation!

TAP® adds a layer of fire safety to your attic. TAP® has fire-retardant characteristics that limit the spread of fire with both flame and smolder combustion resistance.

TAP® gives you the quiet life. It reduces annoying outside noise and helps make your home a quiet, peaceful haven.

TAP® is green. Well, not literally, but TAP® is made from all-natural ingredients and recycled newsprint. While you’re controlling pests and saving energy, you’re also conserving landfill space. Plus, it will be effective for the life of your home.

TAP® forms a perfect fit. TAP® leaves no gaps, covering nooks and crannies, capping the entire attic floor. TAP® helps block heat transfer from convection and radiation, as well as conduction.

We take your recycled newspaper, grind it up, and treat it with a specially formulated borate solution. The result is a safe and highly effective pesticide and insulation that is environmentally friendly.

So, Why Should You Hire a TAP® Provider?

We know you—you’re the motivated DIYer who loves to do projects that add comfort and value to your home. While your hard work should be applauded, there are some projects that you should consider before taking them on.

  1. They do this for a living. Pest Management Professionals dedicate their time to pest management and have completed the necessary training and licensing required to become a pest control operator.
  2. Proper Installation. Proper installation of TAP® Pest Control Insulation is necessary to ensure that the R-value and pest control qualities of the insulation are not compromised. Additional knowledge of attic ventilation, vapor barriers, vent blocking, and more are necessary to complete the installation.
  3. Knowledge of the product. TAP® Pest Control Insulation providers receive special training to evaluate and install a TAP® job. Your provider will also have knowledge of local codes and regulations and will have experience handling TAP® Pest Control Insulation.
  4. Necessary licenses and insurance. Because TAP® Pest Control Insulation is an EPA-registered pesticide, it is required that the Pest Management Company has a pest control license. Pest Management Professionals work hard to obtain and maintain their pest control license.
  5. Safety. Pest Management Professionals are mindful of safety when working in a confined space such as your home’s attic as well as the proper Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to keep them safe.
  6. Price. Many professionals buy insulation and materials at a special reduced rate and invested in the tools required for preparing and installing TAP® Pest Control Insulation. This is a cost that can often break a DIYer’s budget.
