Premise Foam is a ready-to-use formulation of imidacloprid intended to kill subterranean species of termites and other wood-infesting insects. Premise Foam is ideal for easy application directly from the bottle into voids and spaces between wooden elements where infestations are most common. Once applied, Premise Foam expands to reach hidden or difficult to treat areas, and contacts termites or other insects hidden deep within wall galleries or voids. Because of its active ingredient, imidacloprid, Premise Foam works differently from other termiticides which repel, rather than kill, termites. Termites tunneling or foraging in the spaces treated with Premise Foam will go about their usual activities without being repelled. The exposed termites then remain unaffected for a few days, before sudden death occurs. In the meantime, the exposed termites are able to spread the Premise chemical to unexposed termites by physical contact when they feed or groom the other termites, resulting in a domino death effect which wipes out more of the colony. Imidacloprid, the active ingredient in Premise Foam, is the most widely used insecticide in the world with a proven track record of success – less than one percent retreat rate. While Premise Foam is an effective method of controlling subterranean termites within voids and spaces between wooden elements above ground and other areas, it is not intended to be used as your sole source of control. For best results, this product should be used as a supplement to soil-applied termiticide (like Premise 2, or Premise 75WP), or a termite bait system registered as a sole control source.

Premise Foam comes in an 18 oz. can with a nozzle connected to a flexible tube/straw, and two plastic tip attachments

The longer tip is for foaming in wall voids through drywall, or for other hard-to-reach voids.  When accessing a wall void through drywall, it may be necessary to drill a small whole through the drywall first, then insert the tip.
