You might think of insulation as a way to control the temperature of your home. It helps to keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Did you know that insulation can do so much more than that? Pest control insulation can keep homeowners protected as pest issues mount in the spring and summer in the South Portland area. It helps keep rodents and other pests at bay and helps you save money. At Big Blue Bug Solutions, we are experts at installing TAP (Thermal Acoustical Pest Control) insulation.
How Does Insulation Keep Pests Away?
In general, insulation can help keep pests away because it provides a natural barrier that some pests find unattractive. Having insulation also helps seal up small holes that would otherwise be inviting to pests. Taking it one step further, TAP insulation has a natural borate insecticide that’s combined with cellulose fibers that repel pests.
How Can Insulation Save Money in the Long-Run?
TAP insulation helps save money in heating and cooling costs. Beyond that, it prevents pests like rodents, ants, cockroaches, and termites from getting in. These pests can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home. It also resists the growth of fungus-like mold that can cause health issues for your family and is expensive to have properly removed. Additionally, it is fire retardant which can help protect your home in the event of a fire.
