FUSE Foam is a ready-to-use foam produced by Control Solution Inc.—a United States-based innovative and cost-effective pest control solutions manufacturer. Two active ingredients with a different mode of action are present in this termite killing foam, including Fipronil (0.005 percent), the same one use on Termidor SC and Imidacloprid (0.025 percent ). Both of these termite insecticides work by disrupting the central nervous system’s functioning and eventually leading to insects’ death. This foam-based product is effective against a wide range of insects, including termites and other wood-destroying insects, ants, carpenter bees, Asian lady beetles, Boxelder Bugs, Cluster Flies, Elm leaf beetles, Bean Plataspids, and more.
You can apply it in and around structures and in limited outdoor spot treatments. It’s available in 15 ounces and 20 ounces. One of the beneficial aspects of termite foam formulation is it expands foam with a 30:1 expansion ratio. It can be applied by direct injection into termites, ant nests, galleries, structural voids, and other areas. When sprayed, this foam uses one ounce of the product in approximately 5 seconds to produce about 1 quart of foam. It has the ability to deliver a termite control program to reach those hard-to-treat locations with confidence.

Hold your can upright and point away from your face.

Spray for approximately 5 seconds to allow the foam to expand and penetrate the treatment area. Apply foam every 18 inches to large areas of treatment. Hold the tip of the injector in place for approximately 8 seconds after release of the trigger to allow the product to fully expand in the application hose and enter the target area to help minimize run-off. Reapply Fuse Foam one month after the previous application if the activity is still visible.

We recommend using Fuse Foam with other termite treatment products such as liquid insecticides or liquid termiticides for the complete elimination of a termite colony. The success of termite spray is often unpredictable, as termite colonies may not forage in the treated areas.
