iStrike Insecticide Foam is an easy-to-use insecticide that provides excellent elimination and control for wood-destroying insects. This insecticide can be applied to voids within construction sites, galleries in damaged wood, or spaces between wooden structures. The active ingredient is imidacloprid, which damages an insect's central nervous system that results in paralysis and death. Highly effective against drywood termites, subterranean termites, carpenter bees and ant infestations. iStrike Insecticide Foam kills insects upon contact and leaves residual on the surface for continued protection. Comes with two tips: a wide one for bigger holes and area applications, and one narrow tip for cracks and crevices.
Will produce 4 to 5 gallons of foam from 1 can, an expansion rate of 25:1 and 3 to 6 months residual (2 tips included)
Wood Boring Beetles, Carpenter Bees, most Ants, Termites (including Subterranean, Drywood and Dampwood)
For use in
Commercial & Residential: Wooden structures and residential structures Indoor and outdoor spot and crack and crevice treatments
Carpenter Bees: Apply into gallery entrance holes
Termites & Wood Boring Beetles: Apply into galleries or void, channels of damaged wood, and between wood and foundation Ants: Apply foam into cracks and crevices and any voids or places where ants have been found
Yes, if used as directed on Label
NOT FOR SALE TO
Ready to use, no measuring or mixing, non-staining, expands to cover those tough to reach areas
Shake well before using. Hold can upright. Point away from face. Slowly press trigger to dispense foam. To minimize run-off, continue to hold the tip firmly against injection point for 5 seconds after releasing the trigger. Spot treatments with this product can be made, as a temporary control measure, in advance of the date when final treatment of the structure with soil and foundation treatments is completed. To minimize run-off, continue to hold the application tip firmly against the injection point for a full 5 seconds after releasing the dispenser trigger; this will allow product in the application hose to fully expand and enter the target area.
iSTRIKE is for applications to insect galleries in damaged wood, in spaces between wooden structural members, or in voids within the construction. The locations that are intended for treatment may include, but are not limited to, exposed wooden elements in crawl spaces, basements, or attics, unexposed wooden elements inside walls or other structural voids, exterior wooden elements in decks, fencing or siding, channels in damaged wood, in spaces between wooden elements of a structure, and junctions between wood and foundations. iSTRIKE is also for use in residential structures subject to termite or wood-infesting insect attack.
Apply iSTRIKE to use sites when pests listed below are seen or found.
Termites, Wood-Infesting Beetles, ants (except for carpenter, pharoah, fire and harvester) and Carpenter Bees.
Subterranean Termites: Use iSTRIKE a localized treatment to control infestations in above-ground areas of the structure. Apply foam into the galleries or voids in termite-damaged wood, or in the spaces between termite damaged wooden structural members and between the sill plate and foundation where wood is vulnerable.
Drywood Termites, Wood Infesting Beetles or Borers: Use iSTRIKE to control drywood termites, wood-infesting beetles or borers (including powder post beetles, anobiid or deathwatch beetles, false powder post beetles, old house borers, wharf borers, or ambrosia or bark beetles). Apply iSTRIKE into voids or channels in damaged wood of a structure, or to cracks, crevices, and spaces in and between wooden portions of a structure or between wood and the foundation, and in locations vulnerable to attack such as crawl spaces.
Carpenter Bees: Use iSTRIKE as a localized treatment and apply foam directly into gallery entrance holes. Following treatment, the entrance holes may be plugged with a suitable material.
Ant Infestations (except for carpenter, pharaoh, fire and harvester): Use iSTRIKE as a localized treatment to control or suppress ants in houses and other structures. Apply a sufficient quantity of foam by crack and crevice application. Apply enough foam to sufficiently cover the area, but do not allow excessive dripping or run-off to occur. When ant nests are located in decks, treat the interior cavity containing the nest site by injecting a sufficient quantity to cover the area. Inject iSTRIKE into voids where ants or their nests are present, or other places where they enter the structure or where they may have been seen or found. When ant nest sites are located in tree hollows or nonstructural wooden constructions (e.g., posts, fences, decks), treat the interior cavity containing the nest site by injecting a sufficient quantity of foam to cover the area.
I'm so glad I found this product!! It goes where you want it to go without leaving any stains, but even better - it works fast! It's also a great value, because there is no waste. Love this product and recommend it highly.
We had a table made out of selected wood. We saw the white powder on the floor in a couple of spots and couldn't determine what it was. So, of course, we googled it. Found it was dry wood beetles. We never saw the beetles but recognized the white dust.
Purchased this as a DIY fix. My husband, practiced outside with it - very smart man. This has LOTS of pressure. So, he sprayed the foam inside a jar cap and pressed into the areas we were aware of where the dust was coming. It took him about an hour as he is careful and thorough. He had about 3 areas.
It's been about 30-45 days since the use and have seen absolutely no signs of the beetles. According to the instructions, if you see nothing for 3 months, they are gone. We will then seal the areas with an epoxy.
Very pleased so far.
Will iSTRIKE Insecticide Foam kill Carpenter Bee eggs/larvae?
I live in the North East and would like to apply something into the carpenter bee holes in the early spring / late winter before I seal the holes.
Strike Insecticide Foam kills insects upon contact and leaves residual on the surface for continued protection. If eggs hatch and expose their bodies to the residual of the chemical, they will die. Otherwise, the product will not kill the larvae/eggs.
