Our Story

William "Bill" Turk
William “Bill” Turk, Founder & CEO

TAP Pest Control Insulation was created in 2001 by industry visionaries as the perfect fusion of two value propositions important to homeowners – pest control and energy efficient insulation. Based on environmentally responsible cellulose insulation, this premium insulation product would save consumers money thru superior energy efficiency and help protect their home against a myriad of common pests, including roaches, ants and termites.

While energy costs were skyrocketing for consumers, pest management companies were losing employees in the fall and winter due to the seasonality of the industry. Seemingly unrelated, the new TAP Pest Control Insulation represented a major opportunity for household energy efficiency at the consumer level and valued employee retention for pest management companies.

The result would be the ‘greenest of the green’ – an insulation made up of almost 90% recycled paper, that would also eliminate pests from gaining access to homes through attics, crawlspaces and wall voids.
