What can I foam with Bora-Care that will kill an active infestation of drywood termites on contact?

I will be foaming my wall voids with Bora-Care, and I would like to add a non- repellent termiticide that will kill on contact to quickly kill an active infestation of drywood termites around my window frames. Any suggestions? Also, I do have roaches and carpenter ants that live within the walls of the house...is there a non repellent treatment that would work for all these pests that can be effectively mixed with Bora- Care as a foam?

Answer:

Bora-Care alone will kill the dry wood termites very effectively.  Non-repellents do not kill on contact.  They have a delay kill which is what you want for termites.  Bora-Care will kill termites much faster than a non-repellent product which can take up to 90 days to kill the termite colony.  We suggest just using Bora-Care since it is the #1 treatment on the market for dry wood termites.
