How Does OrkinTherm Work?
OrkinTherm Pest Control Insulation is made principally from recycled paper that is diverted from landfills. The paper is reduced in size and then fed through a disc-mill,whose exceedingly fine tolerances explode the fibers into a soft, gray, cotton-boll-like substance. The product is infused with borates through a proprietary process. The result is a thermally and acoustically superior insulation product that is environmentally sensitive and also helps control pests!
OrkinTherm is a “loose-fill” insulation, so it is installed by blowing the product into attics on top of existing insulation (it can also be installed in attics and walls of new homes) with specialized machines. While reducing your energy bills by keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, OrkinTherm can also help control common household pests that nest in attics and walls like roaches, ants, termites, and silverfish. OrkinTherm therefore provides a long-term, preventative approach to reducing energy consumption while helping to protect your home from many common household insects that come in contact with the insulation.
