TAP Insulation in Howard County
What Is Pest Control Insulation?
TAP is natural fiber insulation treated with Boric acid to produce fire-retardant, thermally superior, sound-deadening insulation with permanent pest control properties. TAP 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?
TAP is loose-fill cellulose insulation blown in using a machine. Unlike rolled insulation TAP forms a perfect fit filling nooks and crannies. TAP can be used as a cap over existing insulation in an attic or can be used on its own. Pests crawl through 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, TAP 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?

Is Tap Really a Green Product?
Yes! TAP has earned the ENERGY STAR from the EPA. TAP contains 87% recycled paper. Installing TAP 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 Diseases Transmitted by Rodents
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 family’s heads.
