I have a added on family room that was treated by a company for termites.

I have an exterior wall that has damage and I recently noticed the paneling has some damage,the company that treated said their treatment took care of that but for peace of mind I would like to apply the foam.The wall in question is about four feet until it meets the patio door. Would I drill a hole on top and apply, then also one on bottom?


When using Premise Foam for termites, you need to understand that this product is not a wood treatment product.  It will not penetrate through wood, so you should not just foam in the wall void.  This product needs to touch the termites, and the termites are inside the wood.  You need to drill directly into the damaged wood and foam directly into the wood, not the void.  This product should be foamed directly into the wood where termite activity exists.  The foam will fill the tunnels the termites have eaten away and will affect the termites it comes into contact with and they in turn will pass the product on to other termites they touch before they die.
