Treated Insulation vs. an EPA-Labeled Pest Control Insulation

There are several insulation products on the market today which are treated with an EPA registered pesticide and indicate that the insulation can kill insects. But can they? Unfortunately for consumers and the pest management professionals that offer these types of insulation, the claims are not based on scientific research or proven efficacy data.

Some companies are adding a pesticide to their insulation to “treat” the insulation and claiming that this will “protect” the home.

In professional terms, treated articles are those products, like insulation, that are treated with an EPA registered pesticide for the sole purpose of protecting the product (insulation) itself from damage… NOT the structure (the home). Herein lies the rub. False or cleverly exaggerated marketing claims can destroy a company’s reputation and, in some cases, provide detrimental outcomes for the customers who purchase these treated articles to protect their home.

You deserve more!

Thermal Acoustical Pest Control (TAP®) Insulation is an EPA registered pesticide that promises to control all the insects on its label (Ants, Booklice, Centipedes, Cockroaches, Crickets, Darkling Beetles, Earwigs, Millipedes, Silverfish, Sow Bugs, and Termites including Formosan Termites) wherever applied.

Backed by the Energy Star® Seal and Insulate mark, a rigorous UL Classification process, and an EPA Label identifying the insulation itself as a pesticide, TAP® Insulation works. In today’s marketplace, consumers are highly intelligent and demand products that are authentic while delivering on their promise. Because TAP® Insulation is an EPA registered pesticide, it is only available from and can only be installed by licensed pest management professionals. Treated insulation, on the other hand, can be obtained and installed by anyone.

TAP® Pest Control Insulation is a product that works without any clever marketing spin. As the makers of TAP® Pest Control Insulation, we feel so confident our product will help protect your home from insects, provide cost savings on annual heating and cooling bills, and offer superior acoustic benefits that we offer a lifetime warranty.
