How Does TAP® Insulation Help Prevent Pests?TAP Insulation works just like traditional insulation when it comes to conserving energy and blocking out noise. In fact, some studies have shown that it performs even better. However, TAP Insulation truly stands out when it comes to its pest control properties. How does it work? It’s simple. TAP is made with a borate-infused material that is deadly to many types of insects. Insects cannot build up a tolerance to the borate, so when they come into contact with it, it sticks to their bodies. When they groom themselves or eat, they ingest the borate, which causes a reaction that ultimately kills them. This highly effective, passive pest control treatment can make a big difference in your home.
