Taexx Logo Image

We designed Taexx, the original TUBES IN THE WALL® system, to create a virtual barrier that keeps pests on the outside of your home, and your family securely nestled within. Taexx is a network of tiny tubes that run throughout designated walls of your home. This network strikes unwanted guests where they're the most vulnerable.
