Part of our comprehensive pest and termite control service
As part of our comprehensive pest control and termite control service, Turner Pest Control technicians are fully trained and licensed to install environmentally safe TAP pest control insulation—a unique form of pesticide for your attic as well as an excellent insulation material. The key aspect of TAP pest control insulation that provides the pesticide benefit is the use of a very specialized form of borate material as an additive to the paper fibers. The type of borate material used in TAP pest control insulation is commonly used by pest management professionals in cabinets, around baseboards of homes, and even around the outside of the homes to kill insects.
TAP pest control insulation is a “loose-fill,’ cellulose insulation, so it is installed by being blown into attics on top of existing insulation.
It can also be installed in attics and walls of new homes with specialized machines. While reducing your energy bills by keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, TAP pest control insulation also controls common household pests that nest in attics and walls like ants, booklice, centipedes, crickets, darkling beetles, earwigs, millipedes, roaches, silverfish, sow bugs, and termites (including Formosan termites).
TAP pest control insulation guards against mold and mildew, offers excellent acoustical control and fire resistance with year-round energy savings, and provides permanent pest protection backed by a lifetime warranty.
Attic insulation can be easily damaged in a number of ways resulting in a reduction of the overall benefit of the insulation or even create hazardous health concerns within your home. The relative warmth of your attic in the winter, as compared to the outside, can be an attractive place for small animals and insects to hide leaving behind feces and other materials and creating a health hazard in your home. Additionally, the soft and fluffy fiber glass insulation in your attic can be blown around by air entering through the soffits which can reduce the overall performance and benefit of the insulation.
