Termidor FOAM contains Fipronil, the same active ingredient as Termidor SC, in a RTU (ready-to-use) foam that is labeled for termites and ants. Perfect for spot treatments, Termidor FOAM expands rapidly creating a dry foam that can be applied in the voids, harborages, galleries, and nests where insects are found. The foam generated has an expansion ratio of 30:1. In about 5 seconds 1 oz. of product becomes approximately 1 quart of foam.
Termidor FOAM can be applied in and around residential and commercial structures; structural and non-structural elements that are prone to insect attack (such as fences, utility poles, landscape timbers, bridges, or under slabs); or insect harborages. This product can be applied from the interior and/or the exterior according to label directions. To access some harborages the drilling of holes may be required.
Termidor FOAM helps to fulifill the Localized Interior (LI) component of a Exterior Perimeter/Localized Interior (EP/LI) treatment (also known as PerimeterPLUS).

Termidor product features:
Advanced undetectable technology
Termidor is made from a revolutionary new nonrepellent or "undetectable" chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid Termidor. Instead they contact, ingest, and share it with their nestmates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can find breaks in or avoid completely.
The "Transfer Effect"
Termites who contact Termidor transfer it to every other termite they in turn contact, in a unique process called the "Transfer Effect." And because Termidor is engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite population.
Better than bait... without the wait
Baits can take years to control a termite colony. Termidor begins working immediately to wipe out termites inside and immediately surrounding your home. Termidor is the most effective and fastest at completely eliminating termite populations--up to six-times faster than bait.

I had never heard of termidor foam and had reservations as to it's value. Folks, it works. We made a small hole in the driwall between each wall stud and pierced a hole in the insulation so that I could spray the foam into the airspace. Then inserted the tube through the hole and gave it a squirt. The foam expanded and the termites that I could see began dying. After a couple days, there was no more signs of infestation.

I found their pencil hole entry and drilled it bigger. Then I put on gloves and put the foam in. It was easy and no more coffee grounds! A week later I found another area nearby with drywood termites. I did the same thing. It has been a few weeks and no more coffee grounds anywhere. This works!

This product works great . I used it just as spring was approching the end of February to spot treat troubled infested areas from the past YEARS and in two weeks the termites began to appear . Only this time they were approximately less than 1/10 the amount flying out as there were last year I was extremely pleased!!!! You have no idea what a relief that was now I will treat the barrier around my home. And hope it works the rest of the way to destroy those annoying chewers thanks!

I had a localized carpenter ant nest in a fully enclosed wall. The nest activity spanned a 4x5 foot area. After freaking out and receiving ridiculous exterminator quotes, I did some online research. I learned that the active ingredient in Termidor Foam, fipronil, is a safe and extremely effective chemical that works by direct and indirect contact. Even though the walls had fiberglass insulation, I was able to drill near the studs, and insert this foam into the voids. I only used one can for the the job. I saw results within 12 hours, and the problem was fully resolved within three days. I am thrilled with the effectiveness of this product, and am pretty excited that I was able to save $450+ by tacking this project on my own. Thank you for offering pro-quality pest control products to homeowners at very reasonable prices.

Bought to kill subterranean termites
By J. in Tyngsboro, MA on 05/22/2016
I bought this and the Termidor SC for killing the termites in my mulches. Found Termidor SC that I bought is already enough to kill those that I spotted. So I'll save this for later (Hope I won't use it).
Easy to Use
By Joe in Valrico FL on 05/18/2016
I bought some Taurus SC and used it around the perimeter of the house. I used the Termidor foam in the attic where I saw activity by subterranean s. Easy to use and control the spray--one can did about 40 feet--very happy with this product--thanks
By Gary in Lubbock, TX on 05/16/2016
Used as a spot treatment where they had already treated, but I really didn't think a good job was done, so I retreated to my satisfaction. Hopefully all is good. Fast shipment, and easy to use.

I got them real good. I had my den paneled and unnoticed it was infected with termite. We had the people that said they would fix the infestation for $3,200, so we looked around and found your people use the termidor foam so we bought several cans and drilled holes at the top of the panels and filled it with your foam Bingo termites all gone" cost $250.. There still missing after several months

QHow long will the effects of the Termidor foam remains active if I inject the foam into the exterior walls?
I have the base boards removed and see the remnants of the subterianian termites. I plan on drilling holes into the drywall before I replace the base boards and have had a professional company treat the perimiter of my home with termidor. They explained to me that treating the perimiter of the house will also kill the ones that have already entered my home. I really don't belive that and haven't found that info anywhere on the internet.
ATermidor Foam will remain active for about 6 weeks when injected into the walls. Termidor Sc placed in a barrier around a home will kill foraging termites as they return to the colony....if the colony is not under the home (in most cases the colony will be out in the yard so this method does usually work). It is recommended that if you know where the termites are active in the wall void that you treat the area with a product like the Termidor foam just in case the main colony is under the house.

QCan you help with the math for my Termidor FOAM application?
Interior wall, no insulation, 3” studs spaced 16” apart. So 1 oz. makes approximately 1 quart of foam. 1 quart of foam would fill how many cubic inches? In other words, how many quarts of foam would it take to treat a 12”H x 16”W x 3”D wall void? Do I need to fill an entire wall void from floor to ceiling if I’m just seeing carpenter ant activity at the bottom of the wall? Thank you for your input.
A If there is no insulation in the wall then there's not many reasons for them to be in that wall void as the insulation would provide an area to nest. They may travel behind the wall voids but the main nest will not be behind it. They will most likely be using the studs as a food source and traveling up the sides of the studs. You will not foam the entire void, rather you will drill a hole close to the top of the ceiling/stud on either side of the stud. Once the holes are in place on each side, inject the foam into each hole for 5-10 seconds, allowing the foam to expand but slide down the sides of the studs where they would travel. If you are seeing them along the baseboard areas, drill holes every 8-10 inches apart across the area between studs, about an inch or 2 above the baseboard. Use the same injection rate for each hole and let dry. The Termidor Foam has some residual for about a month after it dissipates so if any are missed in the initial application the rest of the colony should be affected.

QOnce I eject the foam but don't use the entire can how long is Termidor Foam good for?
Shelf Life Termidor Foam after initial use . What do you do for clean up of the nozzle and hose
ATermidor Foam should have a shelf life of about 1-2 years. The nozzle and hose should just be rinsed with water after use.

QHow can I Spot Treat for termites?
I treated the preimeter with dominion 2L and it knocked down termites quickly. fast forward 3 months and I see new mud tubes in celing again? should I do an additional perimer treatment and do a spot treat (different product?) in attic crawl space or is there another prefered method I should follow?
AIf the termites made it indoors then they must have bypassed the trenching treatment form a few months ago. There could be a few different scenarios going on here. 1. the perimeter treatment was somehow disturbed or was not placed completely around the structure and the termites entered through a non-treated area (in this situation you would likely see mud tubes around the exterior of the structure and you should trench and treat accordingly) 2. You have a crawlspace and you did not treat the interior of the crawlspace (in this situation you may see mud tunnels on the interior of the crawlspace or around pipes or piers and you should follow the Dominion product label and treat the crawlspace) 3. The termite colony was under the home and they entered through a hidden crack in the slab or around a pipe or other entry way. (probably will not see the mud tubs as they would likely be in voids) We recommend that you directly treat the infested area with something like Termidor foam and treat accordingly with Dominion 2L if needed in the situations listed above.

QTermidor Foam vs Termidor SC?
What is the advantage of the foam vs the liquid termidor? Wouldn't spraying liquid termidor into a wall void at the top of the wall be essentially the same? If not better? Liquid termidor has a 6 month residual. Foam supposedly is good for only a few weeks. If you insert a spray nozzle into your wall and pull the trigger, all that liquid will saturate the wall and drip down covering the studs, insulation, drywall, whatever.... In fact I would think that liquid would be able to penetrate cracks and crevices better than any expanding foam.... So the drywall gets wet, big deal it will dry ... What say you?
ATermidor Foam is the preferred option over Termidor SC when treating an active infestation of termites behind a wall. When performing a spot treatment behind a wall it is very important to drill directly into the affected stud and foam into the termite galleries as well as the void on either side of the stud. You will not foam the entire void with Termidor Foam, rather you will drill a hole close to the top of the ceiling/stud on either side of the stud. Once the holes are in place on each side, inject the foam into each hole for 5-10 seconds, allowing the foam to expand but slide down the sides of the studs where they would travel. Foam is preferred because it has the ability to expand and travel deep into the termite galleries, cracks and crevices, and wall void much better, which does provide better coverage than liquids.

QHow many cubic inches will a 20 oz. bottle of Termidor FOAM cover?
A Termidor FOAM will expand at a ratio of about 30:1, so each 20 ounce can will create about 20 quarts of foam, covering approximately 1,155 cubic inches.

QHow to apply Termidor Foam inside a house that has insulation?
A If you have termites, you should drill holes into the galleries and inject Termidor Foam to directly eliminate the colony. You will only be injecting the foam into the studs and around where the activity is, not filling the entire wall void. Please see the video for direct nest treatment in our Termite Treatment Guide.

QHow long does Termidor Foam last when applied?
Termites went through stucco, insulation and sheetrock.
A If you are spot treating the voids with Termidor Foam, the product will last for about 6 weeks after applied. See our Termite Treatment article for more information on eradicating termite infestations.

QHow to use Termidor Foam on Carpenter Ants in my ceiling
For a couple of weeks, I have seen residue of something in my ceiling. Turns out it's carpenter ants- I have found a few dead on the floor and seen 2 or 3 climbing up the wall to a gap between the drywall and the molding. Upon looking outside, there is a small hole in my roof (shingles) at the very corner that probably made it easy for them to get in without even making any holes. Could I spray the foam into the hole in the roof, or should I drill holes from the inside drywall? I can't tell if they are in the insulation in the roof, or in the insulation of the exterior wall of the house- but my exterior walls are brick.

QHow to disperse Termidor Foam?
I see in the Termidor foam label that for certain types of treatment, the foam must dissipate or be removed before leaving the area. I have some damaged wood that was treated and I thought the foam would dissipate by itself, but it has not. I do have to remove the foam so that I can repair the wood, but how should this removal be accomplished? Thank you for your help with this question.
ATermidor Foam is an expanding foam that will start to dissipate after if fully expands and will leave behind a residual that will continue to kill termites for about 6 weeks following the application. Termidor Foam will not harden.

QHow long after treatment before wood restoration can begin?
I have a couple fascia boards which were damaged by dampwood termites. The damage is limited, and the boards are not structural members, just cosmetic. An inch or so of one board was destroyed and must be rebuilt. I am planning to restore the damaged wood using a commercially available epoxy product. How long after I treat with Termidor Foam can I begin the restoration process? Thank you.
AIf you used the Termidor Foam to eliminate a colony in there, and you know the entire colony is now dead, you can start the restoration process as soon as you would like. If the colony has not died off yet or you are not sure, make sure adequate time has been given to let the product work before starting the restoration process.

QDoes temperature or moisture affect safety when using termidor foam?
I have active mud tube in the walls of my boiler room. I plan to inject the foam into the wall. The boiler room is always warm with the boiler or furnace running in there. Would higher temperatures cause the chemicals to be in the air as vapor? If I have a water leak in the boiler room and the water comes into contact with the foam, is that unsafe?
AAs long as the product is not coming into contact with open flame or getting to extreme temperatures to hit a flash point (which is listed on the MSDS we have linked on the product page) there should be no harm. Also it will not vaporize or be an issue of water gets on it as it has moisture in it to begin with. The water if anything would dissapate the foam faster.
