When applying Bora Care or Termidor foam for drywood termites do I need to drilll into the beams or in between ok?
I am planning on spraying Bora Care to the open wood framing and foaming the walls that are inclosed by sheetrock. Is filling the spacing between the frame ok or do I need to drill into the infested area in the frame or 2x4.

Normally for drywood termites, you need to find the "kickout" holes and then drill into and through these tiny holes and into the termite chambers where they are living. When you drill into the kickout holes use a cordless hand drill with a 1/8 bit and drill into the holes and also every 8-12 inches along the entire length of the stud. By doing this you are trying to penetrate into the termite galleries. Use a stud finder if you have to. The Termidor Foam is then applied into the holes that penetrate the galleries.
If you can't find the galleries, then you will have to drill in between the studs and foam the entire wall cavity. This is hard to do with a can of foam. The Solo Foamer with Termidor SC is much more economical when doing wall cavity foaming.
Bora Care is good for preventive Drywood termite control. If you have existing Drywood termites, Termidor is the way to go.
Hope this helps.
