You’ve heard the telltale sounds of attic pests before – the scrabbling, scratching sounds of termites, ants, mice, squirrels, or birds who have decided to set up home in your home, keeping you awake at night.
Of course, these pests are more than just an annoyance. They also bring diseases and destroy your home. They can easily cost you thousands of dollars in repair costs if they aren’t eradicated quickly. But once you do get rid of them, is it for good? What’s keeping them from coming back again?
You can plug holes to keep pests at bay, but rodents and insects are especially good at finding an entrance that’s too small for you to notice. That’s why residential pest control insulation is so important. If you’re considering upgrading your attic insulation for pest control, here are some things to note:
1. It’s Safe
Unlike bugs and rodents, our pest control insulation is completely safe for your family home.
2. It’s Environmentally-Friendly
In addition to being safe for your family, our insulation is also safe for the environment. It’s treated with boric acid and other “green” formulas.
3. It Works
This insulation kills most insects on contact and deters other types of pests. If you have termites, cockroaches, ants, silverfish, or other bugs, it’s the ideal solution.
4. It’s Fire-Retardant
In addition to its pest control properties, our insulation is also fire-retardant.
5. It’s Cost-Efficient
Our pest control attic insulation is budget-friendly, too. It’s thermally superior, which means it keeps your home temperature in while keeping outdoor temperatures out. This keeps your energy costs down 20-40%.
6. It’s Better Than Fiberglass
You measure insulation by its R-value, which is the thermal resistance value. Our insulation has a much higher R-value than typical fiberglass insulation. EnergyStar.gov recommends an R-value of at least 49 for the Northeast U.S. You can calculate your current insulation’s R-value by multiplying its thickness by 3. For example, if it’s 11 inches thick, the R-value is 33. In that case, you need a thicker insulation.
