Termidor SC and Boracare not foaming

I separately mixed Boracare and Termidor SC for different areas in the house (Boracare for bottom plate around house and Termidor in 2 voids). I added Profoam to the mixtures after thorough mixing. They did not foam even when I added an extra amount of Profoam. Should I mix Profoam along with the Termidor and Boracare at the same time? I tried that initially and it made a BIG foamy mass which is hard to get into tmy 1 gallon Chapin foamer.


When using either the Boracare or the Termidor for foaming into a void or gallery, you would mix first the insecticide-if Termidor 0.8 oiunces into 1 gallon of water in your Chapin polyfoamer, mix well, then add ideally 3-4 ounces of the Pro foam concentrate to the container. Then shake and mix this well and as you pump it should create the foam. The only reason i can think of if you have done that and it is not foaming, is if you have the wrong tube/tip on the foamer. The chapin polyfoamer comes with two tubes/tips so that it can be a versitile tool and be used as a sprayer AND a foamer. Are you positive you have the foaming tube on the container? If you have more questions or want to trouble shoot it may be easiest to call us at 866-581-7378, or if you feel its a foamer issue, contact Chapin directly for troubleshooting at (800) 950-4458.
