MasterTech Pest Solutions – Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix based, MasterTech Pest Solutions, an A+ Rated Pest & Termite Control company, is proud to be a certified licensed vendor for TAP® Pest Control Insulation in the Phoenix, AZ metro area. Most services they commonly provide with TAP® Pest Control Insulation originate from calls received from homeowners requiring attic clean outs from rodents such as roof rats and pigeons.

“TAP® Pest Control Insulation is the better alternative to other insulations for pest control.”

It is important to address these infestations because, if not treated in a timely manner, they can lead to diseases such as Histoplasmosis – an airborne disease harmful to humans caused by fungus found in pigeon fecal matter. The disease can cause symptoms including fever, cough, fatigue, chills, headache, chest and body aches. If untreated, a spreading case of histoplasmosis is usually fatal.


Roof rats also carry an innumerable amount of diseases from Hantavirus to the plague. They can also cause damage from chewing through a multitude of materials in your basement or attic space including electrical wires. Physical contact with rat feces or simply breathing in their fumes can be bacterially infectious and harmful to humans. In addition, existing insulation can become damaged by rodents or birds which may lead to an infestation of mites and reduced effectiveness of the insulation in maintaining a robust thermal envelope jeopardizing the comfort of your home.

“Using natural borates to kill insects is the safest and most efficient way to control pests in your attic space.”

In these situations, removal of any and all fecal matter, dead vermin, and existing insulation is the first step. Second, providing any exclusion work needed to keep these pests from re-entering your attic or basement space is completed. By then installing TAP® Pest Control Insulation self-grooming insects such as ants, cockroaches, crickets, earwigs and termites will be killed but your attic will be treated with an Energy Star® sealed insulation that will keep out pests while keeping your home temperature friendly – warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Using natural borates to kill insects is the safest and most efficient way to control pests in your attic space as boron, one of the 109 elements that make up our planet, has posed no harmful effects to humans or the environment. TAP® Pest Control Insulation will not have to be replaced unless damaged, so we offer a limited lifetime warranty.


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.
