How Does TAP® Pest Resistant Insulation Work?
This pest control insulation product surpasses traditional insulation in a number of ways. TAP® pest control insulation is made of recycled newspaper, making it an environmentally-friendly choice. Not only does this home insulation keep structures thermally sound—but it also works to prevent and control pest problems. Pests are unable to build up a tolerance to the borate inside the insulation. This means that once the insulation is installed, it will never need to be replaced. This makes it one of the best ways to continually prevent pests in your Bay Area home or business. Other benefits of this pest-resistant insulation include a reduced cost of your energy bills, improved air quality, and reduced outdoor noises.
