A close up of cellulose insulation fibers

As winter approaches in the Knoxville TN area, the pests in your neighborhood start looking for shelter, warmth, and a reliable source of food. All of these things are present in the typical home. As a result, there is an increase in pest infestations in homes late in the year as pests try to get inside. Russell’s Pest Control has been providing reliable pest control since 1971. If you have a pest infestation, we can get rid of it. But what if we told you there was a step you could take to prevent an infestation from starting in the first place? There is. It’s called TAP® Pest Control Insulation. It’s not only effective against the majority of common insect pests, but it is also high-quality insulation that makes your home more energy efficient. 

What’s TAP® Insulation?

Thermal Acoustical Pest Control insulation is referred to as TAP®. It is made from cellulose, a common insulation material that is blown into attics or wall cavities and can be applied on top of existing insulation. Each piece of cellulose in TAP® Insulation has been treated with borate salts, which is what makes it unique. Although the borate is not concentrated enough to harm humans, it is lethal to insects when they consume it. This material is effective for getting rid of a variety of pests, including:

  • Ants
  • Cockroaches
  • Beetles
  • Snails
  • Silverfish and more
  • Termites

TAP® Insulation Benefits

TAP® Insulation doesn’t lose effectiveness over time. It continues to be an effective and reliable pesticide as long as the material is undamaged. In fact, it’s estimated that under ideal conditions, it can continue to work for up to 100 years!

TAP® not only works well as a pesticide but it’s also excellent insulation. The air that travels through it moves more slowly, keeping areas like your attic warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This increases the efficiency of your home and lessens the load on your HVAC system. This explains why our insulation has earned the Energy Star label and how it can help you save up to 30% on your yearly energy costs. TAP® Insulation can help your house become pest-free*, more energy-efficient, and quieter. Installed at a level of R-60, it will almost totally block out outdoor noise.
