Did you know that a properly insulated home can lower energy costs and keep pests out? It’s true! Envirocare Pest Control offers Energy Star Rated TAP insulation, a truly unique product, to homeowners in New Haven, Litchfield, and Fairfield counties.
TAP insulation offers the benefits of lower energy costs and pest control treatments year-round. TAP insulation will keep your home cooler in the summertime, warmer in the winter, and your attic clean and pest-free all year-round.
In fact, TAP insulation offers 32% higher efficiency over traditional fiberglass insulation; is mold, fire, and mildew-resistant, and is the only certified pest-control product with an Energy Star rating.
TAP insulation keeps pests like ants, cockroaches, and termites out of your attic because it contains borates that eliminate pests quickly. As an active pest-control product, it can only be installed by a certified Envirocare Pest Control professional.

FAQs: TAP Insulation & Maintenance
- Does TAP replace my current insulation?
No, TAP does not replace your current insulation; rather it is blown in atop the current insulation to form a complete barrier that keeps pests out and energy costs down. However, if your current insulation has been destroyed by animal fecal matter, our technicians will remove it entirely before installing TAP Insulation.
- How is TAP installed?
The first step in our installation process is preparing your attic by cleaning and removing pest fecal matter, dirt, dust, and debris from the area. Our certified pest control technicians will install TAP insulation via a machine that blows the insulation on top of your existing insulation (if it is in good condition). TAP insulation covers nooks and crannies other insulation methods miss ensuring maximum coverage.
- How much does TAP cost?
The cost of installing TAP insulation depends on the size of the area being treated, the amount of coverage needed, and several other factors. An Envirocare Pest Control technician will give you a complete quote after completing an inspection of the area or areas of your home.
- Is TAP safe to use around children and pets?
Yes. TAP poses a low risk to humans and other mammals because borates – the active pest control ingredient in TAP insulation – have a very low toxicity level. In addition, since TAP insulation is applied behind walls and in attics, the likelihood that children and pets will encounter the insulation is low.
- Does TAP affect mice, rats, or squirrels?
No. TAP insulation is only deadly to insects like ants, roaches, and silverfish. It does not affect mice, rodents, or other mammal pests. We recommend traditional pest control methods in conjunction with TAP insulation to offer a full-service pest control solution.
