Alpine Ant and Termite Foam would be a great option for you. It provides a non-repellent transfer killing effect to eradicate the ant colony/colonies.
Alpine Ant and Termite Foam is designed to spot treat active insect infestations, so it does not have a long residual once applied. This product is a non-repellent, however, so it does have some transer effect among insects listed on the product label. You can reapply Alpine Ant and Termite Foam as needed. If you need a longer residual, you could use a product like Fuse Foam or Termidor Foam. These will last about 60-90 days when used in a wall void.

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.

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.

If you are trying to treat soil under a cracked garage floor a foam is not the correct option for application. You would need to drill holes into the concrete every 12 inches along the wall the garage shares with the home, and anywhere else you suspect termite activity in the soil. Once you drill the holes you can use either the same liquid termiticide you used around the perimeter, or any other of your choosing, and apply roughly 1/2 gallon of solution per hole. This is the only way to sufficiently coat the soil and provide an adequate barrier. Foams like the
The best way to treat interior wood for termites is by using a termiticide foam.
