TAP Insulation: Energy Efficient, Pest Control Product
What is Pest Control Insulation?
T·A·P is a natural fiber insulation treated with Boric acid to produce fire-retardant, thermally superior, sound deadening insulation with permanent pest control properties. T•A•P is acceptable for use around humans and pets but deadly to cockroaches, silverfish, ants, millipedes, termites and other pests listed on the label.
How does it work?
T·A·P is a loose fill cellulose insulation blown in using a machine. Unlike rolled insulation FA·P forms a perfect fit filling nooks and crannies. FA·P can be used as a "cap" over existing insulation in an attic or can be used on its own. Pests crawl through the insulation transferring Boric acid to their bodies and will die after ingesting it.
How will I save money?
When added to existing insulation or installed on its own, T·A-P helps keep comfortable air in the living area of your home. This reduces the energy required to heat and cool your home reducing your heating and cooling bills, saving you additional money by decreasing wear and tear on your HVAC system.

How does it compare?
T·A·P Pest Control Insulation is one of the best performing insulations on the market, outperforming traditional fiberglass insulation by 32% while providing a permanent pest control for your attic.
Is TAP really a Green product?
Yes! T-A-P has earned the ENERGY STAR from the EPA. FA-P contains 87% recycled paper. Installing FA-P in a 1500 sq ft new ranch style home effectively recycles as much newsprint as a family will consume in 40 years; not only recycling, but removing it from the waste stream saving landfill space. Glass fiber contains only about 20% recycled content and data reported to the Canadian Standards Association suggests glass fiber production requires 59 times more energy than cellulose production!
How can Accurate Termite & Pest Solutions help?
According to the CDC humans can contract diseases from rodents when exposed to urine, droppings, saliva or nesting material. Animal presence in the attic means urine, feces and animal carcasses. You could be living with a litter box right above your families heads.
We can help! If you have had animals in your attic, you could be harboring a significant health hazard. We will remove your contaminated attic insulation, disinfect, repair access holes and install a fresh, clean blanket of T·A·P. Due to the content of Boric acid, T·A·P acts as a disinfectant where it is placed. Odor is often eliminated with the use of T·A·P.
