What Is Pest Control Insulation?
TAP is a natural fiber pest control insulation treated with boric acid and other proprietary formulations to produce fire-retardant, environmentally-friendly, thermally superior, sound-deadening insulation with pest-controlling properties. TAP is acceptable for use around humans and pets, but deadly to cockroaches, silverfish, ants, termites, and many other crawling insects. TAP is a U. S. EPA-labeled pesticide.
TAP 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, TAP can be used to cap existing insulation in attics, or can be installed in the attics, walls and crawlspaces of new construction.
- TAP pays for itself quickly in reduced energy costs and then continues to save you money for the life of the structure.
- TAP is a preventative pest control building product and is labeled against ants, cockroaches, silverfish and termites.
TAP into the benefits
- Thermal insulation is a material having air-filled cells or voids, or heat-reflective surfaces, which retard the transfer of heat to cold.
- Acoustical insulation retards the transmission of sound.
- Pest control insulation, while performing the other functions of thermal and acoustical, is labeled to control listed insects. By Federal law, such insulation (and the manufacturing plant) must be registered with the US EPA, and carry an EPA-approved label. Additionally, the product must be registered with the pest control authorities in each state in which it is sold or manufactured. Because TAP is an EPA-labeled pesticide, in many states only a licensed PMP may sell the insulation.
What are the energy & money saving benefits?
TAP saves energy. TAP saves money by decreasing energy bills. It keeps homes cool in summer and warm in winter for less money: Comfortable year-round. Because TAP 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. Comfortable Conservation!

What are the sound absorbing benefits?
TAP 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. Learn more about the acoustical properties.
What are the pest controlling benefits?
TAP 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. TAP is an EPA-labeled pest control insulation, treated with pure boric acid. Although deadly to many insects, TAP is acceptable for use around humans and pets. TAP eliminates self-grooming insects, where it is installed, upon contact. Insects cannot build up a tolerance to TAP, and it never needs re-treating. TAP controls ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and other insects listed on the EPA label.
What is the insulation made of?
All-Natural, Permanent, and Environmentally Friendly, too. TAP is Green! Well, not in color, but TAP is permanent, made from all-natural boric acid and recycled newsprint; thus while you’re saving energy, you’re also conserving landfill space. I’d like to know more about the environmental properties.
Is cellulose a fire hazard?
Most houses are cellulose (made from wood and forest products). TAP contains a fire-retardant chemical that actually makes homes safer in case of fire. Ordinary fiberglass insulation can melt, creating a chimney-like effect in a wall. TAP, with its fire-retardant characteristics, forms a charred surface barrier which limits the spread of fire. I’d like to know more about the fire-retardant properties.
How is TAP installed?
Blown-in TAP forms a perfect fit in your wall or attic when applied, seeking nooks and crannies, filling the entire cavity. As every homebuilder knows, stud cavities are not uniform in size; thus, gaps and voids form when uniformly sized batts are used. Unlike fiberglass batts,TAP is never cut on the jobsite, or stuffed into the cavity to fit behind pipes and conduits, reducing the R-Value. With TAP, the R-Value stays in the insulation! And that means the added value stays in the home and becomes a permanent benefit you can sell to the next owners.
