Protect Your Sarasota Home With TAP Pest Control Insulation

TAP insulation is an environmentally safe material that serves as a pesticide in your attic and walls while also providing you with excellent insulation. This material contains a specialized borate material that’s added to its paper fibers, a substance used by pest control professionals to rid Sarasota homes of insects and more.

Technicians at Turner Pest Control are fully trained and licensed to install TAP insulation using specialized machines, and we offer this service as part of our comprehensive pest control services and termite control services. Interested in learning more? Contact us online or call (941) 342-7378.

TAP Insulation Installation Process

This is a loose-fill cellulose insulation material blown into attics and inside walls by our technicians over any existing insulation. Benefits of TAP pest control insulation include the following:

  • Controls pests, including ants, booklice, centipedes, crickets, darkling beetles, earwigs, millipedes, roaches, silverfish, sow bugs, and termites; this includes the Formosan termites that plague plenty of Florida homes
  • Lowers energy bills by keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, creating opportunities for year-round energy savings
  • Guards against mold and mildew growth
  • Offers excellent fire resistance
  • Provides outstanding acoustical control

When you use Turner for your TAP insulation installation, you’ll receive a lifetime warranty on permanent pest protection. If you’re interested in this service, please contact us online or call us at (941) 342-7378.

Poor Insulation Risks

When insulation in your attic becomes damaged, you no longer fully benefit from its protection. Once disturbed, you’ll pay more in energy bills and this creates an environment where moisture damage (and all of its associated problems and costs) is more likely to occur. Your HVAC system will need to work harder, which will cost you more money and make your home feel less comfortable. 

Plus, insects and small animals may hide in your attic, and their urine and feces can pose significant health risks to your family. As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes, people can become sick when exposed to urine and droppings from rats and mice. How? Spores that contain these substances can become airborne, breathed in by your family and guests or ending up in their eyes and ears.

When animals leave behind waste, this creates a perfect environment for mold, and for bacteria and other microorganisms that feed on organic by-products. Plus, animal waste attracts insects, and wildlife in your home may carry diseases—including rabies, encephalitis, histoplasmosis, and tuberculosis—and parasites. Children, the elderly, and pets can be especially vulnerable to contracting diseases.

Frequently Asked Questions

In TAP (thermal, acoustical, pest control) insulation, recycled paper serves as the main ingredient, usually sourced by diverting it from the landfill. Recycled paper is then reduced in size and fed into a disc mill. The paper fibers now resemble cotton, a texture that can receive a proprietary infusion of borate. The result? Superior, loose fill, environmentally sensitive TAP pest control insulation that provides ongoing protection while reducing energy costs.

Under the right conditions, this type of insulation could last up to an astonishing 100 years! If, though, you have TAP insulation blown into your attic and experience a roof leak or something similar, the lifespan will likely be lessened. By comparing this lifespan to traditional insulation—which, under the right conditions, would consist of decades—it becomes clear that TAP insulation is truly a long lasting solution.

The opposite is actually true! This type of pest control insulation is environmentally friendly, which is one of its key benefits. Most of the material consists of recycled paper with a texture that’s been specially modified to have the right consistency to be air blown into wall voids and attics. Then, the recycled paper is infused with a particular type of borate that’s already being safely used by pest control professionals in multiple ways.

Now look at what the use of TAP pest control insulation accomplishes, which is to create an environment that protects you and your family from toxic situations. In contrast, if rodents could have settled in, then they could spread diseases through their urine, saliva, and droppings as people breathed in their airborne spores.

Benefits are plentiful, including that this is a highly effective form of insulation for your Sarasota home, one that can conveniently be blown on top of already existing insulation in your attic. When a home is being newly constructed, this material can go into wall voids and attics from the start to provide superior construction. As another benefit, TAP insulation can reduce energy costs by up to 30 percent annually as homes are cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Then there’s the pest control aspect that protects your family from raccoons, rodents, birds, and more that might otherwise settle into your attic and potentially spread diseases indirectly as people inhale airborne spores from urine, feces, and saliva. Or, if your family comes in contact with any of these wildlife, disease can be directly transmitted. With borate-infused TAP insulation, though, you’ll automatically benefit from ongoing pest control protection.

Our fully trained technicians are licensed in installing this outstanding insulation-pest control combo, and we’ll leverage our 50+ years of pest control experience to provide the ultimate in service.
