The demand by consumers for green building practices continues to rise. Consumers want their new homes or offices to reflect their desired design while respecting the environment now and in the future. TAP Pest Control Insulation provides professionals such as pest management professionals, installation contractors, and both commercial and residential builders with the flexibility to install a superior thermal insulation product as well as a protective barrier against pests.

This is T•A•P® Pest Control Insulation

Thermal, Acoustical, Pest Control (T·A·P®) Insulation is a thermally and acoustically superior insulation product that is environmentally sensitive while permanently controlling pests. It is made principally from recycled paper that is diverted from landfills.

The paper is reduced in size and then fed through a disc mill, whose exceedingly fine tolerances explode the fibers into a soft, gray, cotton-boll-like substance. The product is infused with borates through a proprietary process.

TAP Pest Control Insulation is a ‘loose-fill’ insulation, so it is installed by blowing the product into attics on top of existing insulation or into attics and wall voids of new construction. It will reduce heating & cooling costs up to 30% annually by keeping structures warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Customers may also qualify for tax credits.

TAP Pest Control Insulation also controls common household pests that nest in attics and walls like roaches, ants, termites, and silverfish. TAP, therefore, provides a long-term, preventative approach helping protect structures from many common household insects while reducing energy consumption.

How Does TAP® Pest Control Insulation Work?

TAP® Pest Control Insulation is not only an innovative approach to pest control, it is one the best performing insulations available to today. Outperforming traditional insulation by 32% and, as a denser, loose-fill insulation, TAP® Pest Control Insulation fills in all of the nooks and crannies traditional insulation rolls do not. The science tells the story, but simply put, TAP Pest Control Insulation just works better!

Not only does TAP® Pest Control Insulation outperform other insulation from a thermal and acoustical standpoint, it takes less energy to manufacture. Only TAP® Pest Control Insulation affords your customers a triple benefit of a more energy-efficient thermal envelope, greater acoustical comfort, and the added value of pest control all wrapped up in an innovative pesticide.

TAP® Pest Control Insulation provides a mechanical kill for self-grooming insects including: Ants, Booklice, Centipedes, Cockroaches, Crickets, Darkling Beetles, Earwigs, Millipedes, Silverfish, Sow Bugs, and Termites (including Formosan Termites). As the insect crawls through the insulation, the active ingredient, Boron, clings to their legs. They ingest the Boron when grooming themselves which interferes with digestion. The insect subsequently dies from dehydration. TAP® Pest Control Insulation is NOT a repellant or bait. It kills…period.

It is simple…no other pesticide or insulation product comes close!

How Does TAP® Pest Control Insulation Stack Up to Other Insulation?

Not all insulation is created equal. In fact, insulation made of cellulose has a greater R-value (resistance to heat transfer) at R-3.6 per inch than traditional insulation. The benefit to your customers is that fewer inches of TAP® Pest Control Insulation are needed to protect the home from the winter cold and summer heat.  Learn more about R-values.

TAP® Pest Control Insulation is, first and foremost, an EPA-registered pesticide, NOT a treated insulation. Some insulations add an EPA registered chemical intended solely to protect the insulation itself. These are considered treated insulations which do not help protect the structure of the home and must refrain from making pesticide claims.

TAP® Pest Control Insulation, however, is a registered pest control product backed by the EPA and a lifetime warranty that offers an additional layer of home protection and the peace of mind your customers seek. TAP® Pest Control Insulation is a proactive, preventative approach to pest management which follows current Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques. This coupled with the thermal and acoustical benefits of cellulose elevate TAP® Pest Control Insulation as THE insulation choice for homeowners and the professionals that serve them.

When in doubt, ask to see the EPA-label. Need more information on how cellulose insulation compares to other insulation? View how TAP Pest Control Insulation compares.

What are Professionals Saying About TAP® Pest Control Insulation?

We are so excited to serve the pest control and wildlife industries as well as their clients across the U.S. Below are just a few of the kind words that have been shared with us to help you make your decision.


“The support and training is what set the TAP® Pest Control Insulation support team apart from other companies. The TAP® Pest Control Insulation team supported our efforts by providing product literature, marketing materials, online sales training and online installation training. Their members’ website portal is a wonderful reference and support tool, but their hands-on training is what we appreciate most.

The TAP® Pest Control Insulation support team has spent time over the past eight years in each of our six regions performing hands-on sales and service installation training. I truly feel we would not have had the success we have had with our insulation services was it not for the help of the TAP® Pest Control Insulation support team!”

Jay Yarsinske, Corporate Quality Assurance Supervisor for Terminix Service, Inc. in Columbia, SC

“We’ve added $100K in sales of TAP® Pest Control Insulation within our first year of offering this new service.”

Will Langman, Owner of Langman’s Wildlife and Pest Control in Brazil, IN

“It made sense to add TAP® Pest Control Insulation to our service offerings. We had a captive audience with our termite renewal customers and were in their attics inspecting already, so it was an easy add-on. TAP® Pest Control Insulation is not a hard sell because we are with customers who know us and trust us.”

Dena Thomas, COO of Advanced Services in Augusta, GA

“TAP® Pest Control Insulation is a very green pest control product and it fit in perfectly with what we want to offer our customers. The team at TAP® Pest Control Insulation guided us all the way through the training process, and it is an easy program to incorporate into your operation. Like other programs you have to have good buy in from your staff and the TAP® training helped that.”

Steve Phillips, President of Northwest Exterminating in Marietta, GA

“It has been a breath of fresh air when it comes to revenue. TAP® Pest Control Insulation gives our technicians another option in their toolbox to talk with customers about and it has been a win-win; customers receive energy savings, protection from pests and better acoustics, and it has grown revenue for the company. Anyone that’s not involved in TAP® is definitely missing out.”

Scott Fortson, President of Terminix Services in Columbia, SC

“TAP® Pest Control Insulation will be nearly 10 percent of our overall revenue, and we only see it growing in the future. The benefits to our company include no callbacks for our technicians and for the homeowner it is energy savings and the peace of mind that TAP® Pest Control Insulation will prevent pests from invading their home and becoming a nuisance.”

Howard Bright, Owner of Anti-Pesto Bug Killers in Largo, FL

“TAP® Pest Control Insulation has been our highest margin service offering and continues to make a positive impact on our bottom line. This is the first pest control service we have offered that provides an immediate, tangible result in the form of savings for our customers. We had an initial comfort level with TAP® Pest Control Insulation from day one. Several of our employees have had previous experience with TAP® Pest Control Insulation. From a service standpoint, the classroom and install training was tremendously beneficial to our team. The TAP® Pest Control representative was very knowledgeable and his presence coupled with his insight was exceptionally valuable.

As a customer myself, I received a $600.00 credit from my electric company, and because of TAP® Pest Control Insulation and the thermal benefits provided, it took almost two and a half months to take advantage of entire credit. Overall, the Arrow Environmental Team now feels like experts at installing TAP® Pest Control Insulation. The key for us is to prepare our customers for the service properly. We have truly taken ownership of offering support for our team and customers.”

Paul Goodman, General Manager of Arrow Environmental Services in Sarasota, FL

“The addition of TAP® Pest Control Insulation to our current service line-up allows us to offer something that not many others can. As a company with a dedicated wildlife division, Modern Pest Services is able to utilize TAP® Insulation to enhance our service offerings as a “one-stop shop” for all of our clients’ pest control needs including general pest control, wildlife control, attic clean out & restoration, and insulation overlays (attic capping).

The customer support provided by the Pest Control Insulation team is fantastic. The marketing team has been great to provide materials and resources to use online as well as samples of marketing collaterial. Regardless of the initial costs, you could be losing clients simply because you are not offering TAP® Pest Control Insulation.”

Colton Tlumac, General Manager, Wildlife Control for Modern Pest Services in Brunswick, ME

“TAP® Pest Control Insulation is the better alternative to other insulations for pest control and one that MasterTech proudly offers at a fair price and guarantees to last.”
