What Is TAP Insulation And What Are Its Benefits?

TAP insulation stands for Thermal, Acoustical, Pest Control insulation. It is a loose-fill insulation designed to be blown into attics on top of existing insulation. TAP insulation is made from 87% recycled materials, primarily newspaper. It has many benefits over other forms of insulation:

  • It is environmentally responsible.
  • It keeps your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, compared to other insulations.
  • It reduces outside noises.
  • It is fire-resistant.
  • It is mold and mildew resistant.
  • It is an environmentally friendly borate-based pesticide combined with the recycled materials. This delivers pesticide-like qualities that protect your home from pests that invade through the attic, such as:
  • Ants
  • Termites
  • Silverfish
  • Cockroaches
  • Boxelder bugs
  • Centipedes
  • Earwigs
  • Pillbugs
  • Crickets
  • Slugs
  • Millipedes
  • Sow bugs
  • Stink bugs

The TAP Insulation Installation Process


When you contact Amco Pest Solutions for TAP insulation installation, we’ll first visit your home to inspect your attic space. During our inspection, we’ll create a professional graph that marks:

  • Heat-producing sources
  • Attic access(es) 
  • Power/fuse boxes
  • Knee walls
  • Chimneys/flues

Following our inspection, we’ll provide you with an estimate for our services based on the professional graph. If you choose to move forward, we’ll schedule a time for the service to be performed. 


TAP insulation requires special training in order to be able to evaluate the space and install the insulation. It requires specific measurements to create the right R-value and should only be installed by a licensed pest management professional. When you choose Amco Pest Solutions, you not only receive service from professionals who are trained in TAP insulation installation, but you also receive service from professionals who are knowledgeable about local codes and regulations.


Once your TAP insulation is installed, no follow-up services are necessary. It comes with a lifetime warranty for your full peace of mind.
