TAP Insulation – Preventative Pest Control
Home Insulation & Pest Control in One Product
TAP 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.
What is TAP insulation?
TAP is a “loose-fill” insulation, 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. While reducing your energy bills by keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, TAP also controls common household pests that nest in attics and walls, including:
Why Choose TAP Insulation?
TAP helps keep comfortable air in the living area of your home. This reduces the required energy needed to heat or cool your home and, in turn, reduces your heating and cooling bills.
TAP responsibly eliminates many common household pests, including cockroaches, ants, termites, and silverfish.
TAP reduces unwelcome noise from outside and helps create a peaceful environment inside the home. Insulated interior walls reduce annoying noises (such as toilets flushing and appliances running) inside a house.
Looking at its entire product life-cycle (from production to operation to disposal), cellulose insulation is one of the greenest building products in the world. It takes less energy to make than other insulation products, is made from 86%+ recycled paper, reduces a home’s carbon footprint by saving energy, and provides no post-installation waste.
“Great company. On time, on budget and easy to work with. Compass really goes the extra mile.”

Is TAP Safe?
Yes! Principally made from recycled paper, TAP 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.
Unlike most traditional pesticide chemicals, TAP is applied behind walls and in attics where exposure to people and pets is extremely limited.
How It Compares to Alternatives
TAP Pest Control Insulation is one the best performing insulation on the market. TAP outperforms traditional fiberglass insulation by 32% and, as a denser, loose-fill insulation, TAP fills in all of the nooks and crannies traditional insulation rolls do not. The science tells the story, but simply put, TAP just works better.
Not only does cellulose insulation outperform other insulation from a thermal and acoustical standpoint, it takes less energy to make it! Only TAP Pest Control Insulation, however, gives you the triple benefit of 32% greater efficiency when compared to traditional insulation, superior acoustical benefits, and the added value of pest control! No other insulation product comes close.
