NEPTUNE CITY, N.J., March 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cowleys Termite & Pest Services, which has been proudly serving the pest control needs of central New Jersey for two decades, is now a certified installer of TAP Pest Control Insulation. The latest in multi-purpose insulating technology for homes and businesses, TAP is a cellulose fiber insulation that is treated to produce insulation that is fire-retardant, environmentally friendly (87% recycled newsprint), and that provides an effective pest control barrier. TAP Pest Control insulation is the first product in the building materials market that augments the proven benefits of stabilized cellulose insulation with a unique pest control component.
TAP insulation can be used in both new construction and retro-fit applications. If your existing insulation is not damaged, TAP can be installed right on top of your existing fiberglass or cellulose insulation giving an added layer of protection as well as to block convection loops associated with fiberglass insulation. "We are so excited about adding this new service to our business offerings and to be able to help customers reduce pests in their attic as well as save money on energy bills," said owner Bill Cowley.
TAP offers three benefits of insulation in one new, safe, and effective product: Thermal Benefits (T); Acoustic Benefits (A); and Pest Control Benefits (P). The fundamental job of any insulating product is to keep the warmth in during winter and the cool in during the summer. Often, the insulation pays for itself within a year or two from reduced monthly utility costs. Your heating and air conditioning systems become super-efficient with the right insulation. TAP also offers significant acoustic benefits, dampening outside noise.
But the benefit that makes TAP insulation unique on the market today is pest control. TAP provides a solid shield of treated insulation that is a deadly poison to many insects including cockroaches, termites, and wood-boring insects. The active ingredient in TAP is boric acid, which was first registered as an insecticide in 1948 so its safety has been established for more than half a century. Boric acid kills many insects on the spot, but is harmless to humans and pets. Since it is non-organic, it won't fade and will remain permanently deadly to insects coming into contact with the insulation.
