    Default Held Identifying my old insulation

    I have searched and searched and searched some more but cannot find the answer I am looking for. What kind of insulation is in my house? I am currently re-siding my house and removing the "compressed paper" sheeting (~3/4" thick and removing the insulation for new insulation and new OSB sheeting prior to the siding.

    Now insulation is a black "bag" that seems to be made of tar paper. Inside this bag is a redish fibery material that looks almost like sawdust.

    I am concerned, as it is very brittle to remove and concerned if this may contain asbestos or other bad stuff.

    Any help would be appreciated!!!
