Attics can be an ideal place for pests to build their nests because it provides building materials like your insulation. Insulation is important in maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home.
To keep unwanted pests out of attics and walls, use pest-resistant insulation. This insulation serves a dual function because it also protects against pests, resists heat, and lowers your energy bills.

What is Cellulose Insulation
Cellulose insulation is a form of loose insulation produced from recycled post-consumer paper.

The treatment also resists the growth of fungus and can even help prevent the spread of flames in the case that your house catches fire.
Why Use Cellulose Insulation
