How to treat formosan termites in my boat?

I have formosan termites in the cabin of my boat, they are attacking the particle board under the formica, at present I use "suspend SC around the house, will this work and if so how is the best way to administer?


The most popular product that we have for treating termites in boats or other areas that are not easy to reach is Premise Foam.  You have to drill a hole into the damaged piece of wood and treat it directly.  The Premise Foam is considered better for termites because the foam will expand which gets you better coverage area inside the wood.  Also, Premise foam is a non-repellent product meaning the termites can pass it around to other termites which Suspend will also not do.
