best product to pressure inject insecticide directly into infected wood - termites
I was looking at the various products that you offer for termites
and wasn't sure what is best for what I want: to pressure inject
insecticide directly into infected wood, either thru the termite holes
or drilled holes. I want something that, once I've got access to the
termite galeries, will pressure inject as far into the wood as possible.
For this, it looks like a foam is not viable as these all seem to
expanding foams for voids between walls and such, but I like the fact
that Termidor has a long lasting effect. Any help would be greatly

It depends on the species of termites you are dealing with. In this case, I am going to assume that you are talking about Drywood Termites, since treatment for subterranean termites would not usually require a "gallery treatment"
You might be "overthinking" this. When you apply any termiticide into the termite galleries, all you are trying to do is to kill the adult termites. The immature termites require the adults for survival, just like a human baby requires an adult for survival. So in essence, all you are trying to accomplish is to apply enough insecticide to kill the adults. IF you can drill into the termite galleries, almost ANY amount of chemical will kill them in that area. The trick is to be sure that you have drilled into the galleries, and to make sure you have treated ALL of the colonies. Termidor Foam is by far the single best product for this purpose. It may not expand like you want it to, but the transfer effect from termite to termite will be enough to kill the colony. Let me know if you have any more questions.
