How Does TAP® Insulation Work in Your Home?
TAP® Insulation is made primarily from recycled cellulose treated with boric acid. The concentration of boric acid is not enough to cause harm to humans, or even pets, unless it is ingested in large quantities. But when insects come into contact with it, the acid coats their bodies and enters their system when they groom themselves. They are then unable to excrete the powder, and eventually, it builds up until they die of dehydration or malnutrition. Just like that, you’ve wiped out a potential infestation without having to lift a finger.
Which Pests can TAP® Insulation Stop?
With TAP® Insulation you can protect your household from a variety of pests, including:
Benefits of Installing TAP® Insulation in Your Home
TAP® Insulation offers many benefits in terms of pest control for homes in Wisconsin. More than that, it boasts a sustainable solution to both regulating your home’s climate and keeping out any invading insects. TAP® is an EPA-labeled product, meaning while you’re enjoying the benefits you’re also supporting the environment.
TAP® also holds up in comparison to other insulations. It slows the transfer of heat, leaving you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It even blocks out a good percentage of sound from outside the home, making your home more comfortable in yet another way.

The boric acid in the cellulose coats any pests that come into contact with it. And, when they groom themselves or each other, they ingest the chemical and ultimately die of dehydration or starvation.
In a procedure that takes typically 4-6 hours, depending on the size of the property, our certified installers blow the material into your attic and over any existing insulation.
TAP is cellulose insulation made from 80% recycled paper, and therefore it is made with less energy and can substantially reduce a household’s utility cost and carbon footprint.
The borate in TAP insulation is not concentrated enough to kill rodents.
Since the borate in TAP® insulation isn’t concentrated to kill rodents, it poses little risk to children, adults and larger houshold pets.
As the insulation settles, you’ll find TAP does not degrade in quality, even over the course of decades. When done well, our TAP insulation can last for as long as you live in your current property, and then some.
