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.
The main ingredient is recycled paper, usually diverted from going into a landfill. After being reduced in size, this recycled paper is fed into a disc mill. This process transforms the paper fibers into a cotton-like substance that can receive a proprietary borate infusion. The result is the superior, environmentally sensitive TAP (thermal, acoustical, pest control) insulation—a loose fill material that provides ongoing pest control protection.

Quite the opposite, actually! One of the benefits of this type of pest control insulation is its environmental friendliness. Most of the insulation is recycled paper that’s been specially treated to have the right consistency to be air blown into attics and wall voids. This paper is infused with a specialized form of borate that is safely used by pest control experts in numerous applications.
Responding to this question in another way, TAP pest control insulation actually creates an environment that protects your family from toxic situations—such as when rodents settle in and their urine, saliva, and droppings spread diseases as their spores become airborne.
Ready for this? This type of pest control insulation could last up to 100 years, given that conditions are right. (If you have this insulation blown in your attic, for example, and then the roof leaks, this will likely shorten the lifespan of the insulation.) Compare that to traditional insulation that, under the right conditions, can last for decades. In short, this is a long lasting solution.
Numerous benefits exist. For one thing, this is a highly effective form of insulation that can be conveniently blown on top of existing insulation in attics. In new construction, it can go into attics and wall voids to provide superior protection from the get-go. This insulation can help to reduce energy costs by up to 30% each year because homes can be kept cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Plus, plenty of unwanted critters can settle in your attic—from rodents to raccoons, birds and more—and any form of wildlife can carry and transmit diseases. These diseases can be transmitted indirectly when people inhale airborne spores of wildlife feces, urine, and saliva, or directly if your family comes in contact with any of them. Because this insulation is borate infused, you will benefit from ongoing pest control protection without needing to take additional steps.
