You may be wondering, “What is TAP Insulation?” Thermal, Acoustical & Pest Control Insulation (or “T•A•P”) is a patented natural fiber insulation treated with boric acid to produce fire-retardant, environmentally-friendly, thermally superior, sound-deadening, pest-controlling insulation.
TAP Insulation is the result of a revolutionary merger of two well-respected technologies—natural cellulose insulation and natural borate pesticides. TAP is the only stabilized pest control insulation. As part of a total pest management package, TAP can be used to cap existing insulation in attics, or can be installed in attics, walls, and crawlspaces of new construction. TAP Insulation pays for itself quickly in reduced energy costs (up to 38%) and then continues to save you money for the life of the structure.
TAP is acceptable for use around humans and pets, but deadly to cockroaches, silverfish, ants, termites, and many other crawling insects. TAP is the only stabilized insulation which can make pest-control claims. TAP is registered with the U. S. EPA as a labeled pesticide.
The Benefits of TAP Insulation
TAP Insulation Kills Bugs
Insects cannot build up a tolerance to TAP, as they can with organic biological treatments, and you never need to re-treat the insulation. TAP controls ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and other pests listed on the EPA label.
EPA-Registered Pesticide Containing Boric Acid
Boric Acid, the active ingredient in TAP, is found in common household products such as saline eyewash solution, detergents, and the food we eat. Although deadly to many insects, T•A•P is acceptable for use around pets and people.
