TAP® Pest Control Insulation delivers on its promises to control pests and provide a more comfortable home for customers. The active ingredient in TAP® Insulation is Orthoboric Acid which provides a multitude of benefits including permanent pest control. The question frequently asked, however, is, “What is Orthooric Acid, and how does it work?

Orthoboric acid is derived from boron, a naturally occurring substance found in rocks, soil, and water. Boron is common in the environment and generally an odorless, white solid. Insects are killed by the ingesting of boric acid which shuts down their digestive system essentially dehydrating them. An added bonus is that Boron interferes with the reproduction of fungi, rot, and molds while providing the insulation’s fire retardant properties.

Boron is also an essential plant nutrient controlling flowering, pollen production, germination and seed development. It can be found in many household items such as cosmetics, eye wash, shaving cream, soaps, cotton linens, and laundry detergent. The truth is Boron exists all around us, and we touch this very important element every day.
