We know you—you’r the motivated “DIY-er” who loves to tackle projects that add comfort as well as value to your home. While your hard work should be applauded, there are some projects that might be best left to a trusted professional.

They Do This For a Living. Pest Management Professionals dedicate their time to pest management and have completed the necessary training and licensing required to become a pest control operator and TAP® Installer.

Proper Installation. Proper installation of TAP® Pest Control Insulation is necessary to ensure that the R-value and pest control properties of the insulation are not compromised. Additional knowledge of attic ventilation, vapor barriers, vent blocking, and more are necessary to complete the installation.

Knowledge of the Product. TAP® Pest Control Insulation providers receive special training to evaluate and install a TAP® job. Your provider has knowledge of local codes and regulations and the experience of handling EPA-registered TAP® Pest Control Insulation.

Necessary Licenses and Insurance. Because TAP® Pest Control Insulation is an EPA-registered pesticide, it is required that the Pest Management Company maintain a valid pest control license. Pest Management Professionals work hard to obtain and maintain their pest control license annually.

Safety. Pest Management Professions are mindful of safety when working in a confined space such as your home’s attic, as well as the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep them safe.

Price. Many professionals buy insulation and materials at a special reduced rate and invest in the tools required for preparing your attic and installing TAP® Pest Control Insulation. This is a cost that can often break a DIY-er’s budget.
