Would Fuse Foam Ready-to-Use Termiticide Insecticide be appropriate to treat bath trap areas in a concrete slab?

Or should a liquid (Taurus) be used to soak the area?


Per the label, Fuse Foam Ready-to-Use Termiticde Insecticide can be used in areas where termites are known or suspected. Apply Fuse Foam to termite galleries, channels, damaged wood, harborages between structural elements or within construction voids. Indoor termiticide treatment locations may include areas associated with unexposed wooden elements inside wall voids, in and around bath traps, shower voids, pipe chases, utility penetrations and other probable sites of termite entry or harborage. So Fuse Foam will be appropriate if you're making an application to an area where you suspect/know of termite activity. Because concrete is a porous surface, an application of Taurus SC may be better, per the label: Bath traps: Treat exposed soil or soil covered with tar or similar sealants beneath or around plumbing and/or drain pipe entry areas with a minimum of 1 gallon but not more than 4 gallons of finished dilution per square foot. It may be necessary to remove tar or sealant to ensure adequate soil penetration. Install an access door or inspection portal if one is not already present. After inspection and removal of all wood or cellulose debris, treat the soil by rodding or drenching with the finished dilution of Taurus SC.
