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!

This is an Excellent product for indoor use. As of right now(4 weeks after using it) I have not seen 1 termite, spider or silver fish. You don't have to use that much of this because it expands into the cracks which makes it great in spots you can't get to and IT WORKS. I have to give Termidor Foam 5 stars.

The first application I put down when I replaced the baseboard in my living room about a week ago. I will know more as time goes on! I hope between the professional application and my own application this will be the end of a surprising story! My rating is no reflection on how well the product works. It just too soon to tell the end result!

Eric from Tampa, Florida asked:
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.

Aaron from Phoenix, Az asked:
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.

Cecilia from Howell, Nj asked:
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.

Erin from Marietta,ga asked:
QI have ants in my bathroom, will Termidor Foam work for me?
ATermidor Foam will certainly take care of an ant infestation when used as directed on the product label in cracks, crevices and voids. You can expect it to take about 3 weeks to see full results.

Matt from Surprise, Arizona asked:
QIf I see a termite tube should I shoot Termidor FOAM there or find the studs and drill a new centered hole
found termite tubes in a closet in the center of a one story slab house.
AYou want to inject the Termidor foam into the studs. You also want to perfom a perimeter trenching around the stucture and apply a termiticide like Termidor SC. Please review our article Do It Yourself Termite Control.

Alex from United States asked:
QTermidor Foam is it expanding like a sealing foam or is it an expanding foam that fills...
a hole and then dissipates after it fully expands
A Termidor Foam is an expanding foam that will start to disspate after if fully expands and will leave behind a residual that will continue to kill termites for about 6 weeks following the application.
April 9, 2014 Art asked:
QTermidor FOAM contact with skin
some of the foam touch my forearm and I was not able to wash it completely off for about 10 minutes. I dont see anything on the label about how to treat the area. I washed with soap and water for about 15 minutes per the Termidor SC label.
A Yes, as long as you were able to rinse the area Termidor foam touched with soap and water for 15 minutes, there should be no harm. If you are still concerned please contact BASF 800-526-1072.

QNeed an indoor localized spot treatment product for Drywood Termites.
I live in California and wanted to get the Termidore Foam for a local indoor treatment of Drywood termites. You apparently don't sell this to California. What would you recommend?
A The Alpine Ant and Termite Foam would be a fantastic option to perform spot treatments and it is for sale to California residents. Alpine Ant and Termite Foam comes from a new line of Reduced Risk Non-Repellent products which means effective pest control with a safer active ingredient.

John from Garden Grove, Ca asked:
QDoes Termidor foam work for ground holes?
I have subterranean termites around the kitchen sink. I drilled 2 ground holes near it, reaching the soil. Would using the foam work or should I use the liquid one instead?
A If you have drilled into the soil and are treating the soil under the slab then it is best to use Termidor SC. When you use Termidor SC in soil, it will last atleast 10 years.

Joseph from Brunswick Georgia 31525 asked:
QDrilling 2x4 wood stud to treat for termites. What size hole do I need and what product will I need
A To treat wood studs, you want to drill a 3/8 to 1/2 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. It 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. If you know where an active infestation is, you should indeed direct treat with the Termidor Foam. The foam will only last for about 6 weeks because it is not bonding with soil molecules. An outside trench will need to be performed also. Please click on the article on how to perform your own termite treatment for additional information and tips.

Robert from Tustin, Ca asked:
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?
A Termidor 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.

Carolyn from Largo, Fla asked:
QWhat product would I use for indoor application under concrete floor?
We are moving the sink from the wall side of the kitchen to the island side and have to dig a trench in the concrete floor for the plumbing. We have to treat the trench for termites before we replace the concrete (with 6x6 #10 wire mesh and a vapor barrier). Not sure which Termidor to use. The trench will only be at most 8 ft long, maybe 6 inches wide...? That's a guess though.
A Termidor SC should be applied in a 6" by 6" trench directly around the exterior of the structure. It is not applied indoors. It is labeled for outdoor use only. Termidor Foam can be used indoors for a spot treatment that will kill existing termites but will only provide up to 6 weeks of treatment and does not replace the exterior trench treatment. Please contact us at 866.581.7378 for more information on treating for termites.

Donna from Tampa, Fl asked:
QCan I use the Termidor Foam inside on baseboards?
In a small area around the baseboard at my French doors I see saw dust every day. I would like to spot treat the areas where I see the saw dust.
A You can use the Termidor Foam by injecting it into the baseboard and applying behind the baseboard. You should not just apply to the exterior of the baseboard as the foam will not soak into the wood and the termites would go untreated.
