Custom Pest Solutions is proud to offer the "Thermal-Acoustical-Pest Control" also known as "TAP." This insulation offers two sustainable solutions in one innovative product: an environmentally responsible insulation with superior thermal and sound-deadening properties and a unique method of pest control.
There’s a new product that Custom Pest Solutions is certified to put in your home that not only insulates, has sound deadening properties, but it also helps to control pests! It’s “Thermal-Acoustical-Pest Control,” also known as "TAP." It’s the combination of two technologies: borate-based pest control and highly energy-efficient, all-natural cellulose insulation.
TAP saves money! When added to existing insulation or installed on its own, TAP reduces your heating and cooling bills. It also controls pests such as ants, termites, and cockroaches at the same time!
TAP is a “loose-fill” insulation, so it is installed by blowing the product into attics on top of existing insulation (it can also be installed in attics and walls of new homes) with specialized machines. It uses borates as the active pest control ingredient. Borates are mineral salts mined from the earth and are commonly used in many consumer products such as contact lens solution and anti-fungal creams. Borates are deadly to insects yet have extremely low toxicity to mammals and thus pose a minimal risk to people and pets.
Custom Pest Control Solutions is ready to answer your questions about this new product that serves multiple purposes. If you’ve been considering insulating your home, you really should consider taking a look at this new “green” product!
