How can I use Alpine Ant and Termite Foam for powderpost beetles with entrance holes the size of a ballpoint pen tip?

We have a major powderpost beetle infestation in an old maple floor. Lifting the floor boards is not an option.


To apply Alpine Ant and Termite Foam to the holes you would need to drill the holes to make them larger.  This product is really not ideal for treating this way as it will not protect the flooring; it only treats what is active at the time for about 90 days.  A better option would be using Jecta, which can be used without drilling and will penetrate the wood better for protection and treatment.  The manufacturer can actually offer some great advice on using it in a syringe so that you do not have to drill.  Nisus can be reached at 800-264-0870.
