Can CB D-Foam be used on termites?

We have already ordered your Termidor SC product, but my brother in law already had this product for me to use. They are flying in from a hole in my wall, so I just want to use something temporary until I receive the Termidor SC.

Answer:

We would not suggest using CB-D Foam because although CB D-Foam will kill termites, it will kill them on contact and could make them go somewhere else in your house.  The reason Termidor SC is the best product is because it does not kill termites right away and will let them take the product back to the colony and kill the colony at the source, which CB D-Foam will not.  Although the instinct is to spray something now, termites eat very slowly and cannot cause any more damage than they already have over the next month.  It would be advised to cover the hole in the wall with tape or something and then apply Termidor SC around the home and in the wall void instead.  Otherwise, you defeat the purpose of using Termidor SC at all.
