Bayer Premise foam is another product designed to kill a swarm of termites efficiently. It is manufactured by Bayer United States—a reputable name in the manufacture of various pest control products. It is a ready-to-use product that delivers long-lasting results. It provides precisely formulated dry foam every time and helps to kill termites on the spot.
The active ingredient in this product is Imidacloprid, i.e., a potent insecticide and works by disrupting the nervous system’s normal functioning. It is more harmful to insects than humans and other animals because it binds to nerve insect receptors upon contact. Imidacloprid is a potent insecticide but available in minute quantities in this termite killing product. It can be applied inside and outside your home around insect galleries, spaces between wooden structural elements, voids, railings, basements, attics, decks, fences, siding, damaged wood, and foundations.
- It effectively covers hard-to-reach areas such as inner termite galleries, wall voids, etc.
- No setup time or mixing concern
- Provides long-term control
- Ready-to-use and effective formula for killing species of termites (dry wood termite, subterranean termite)
- Termite undetectable—destroys them remarkably well
- Potent active ingredient—not an environmentally friendly product.
- A little bit on the pricey side
No tools are needed to operate the Premise Foam as it comes ready-to-use, but you may need a drill to drill holes in the walls to inject the foam.
How To Use
Inspect and note areas where you are engaged in certain termite activities or where termite galleries are established. If necessary, drill holes in the walls and empty about the size of a nail. Poke holes down the wall every 18 inches, 10 feet in each direction. Premise Foam is administered at approximately 0.2 fluid ounces of liquid formulation or 50 cubic inches of foam per second. Shake the Premise Foam, attach the applicator’s tip to the Premise Foam and inject the foam, pressing for about 10 seconds to get enough foam into the void. Apply the Premise Foam to places where you have termite or other wood-bearing insects. They can be found in cracks and crevices alongside windows and doors, wall voids, crawl spaces, behind sheet rocks, and other areas where the termite gallery may be located.
Where To Use
Use this foam to treat insect galleries in damaged wood, spaces between wooden structural components, or building voids. Treated sites may include exposed wooden elements in ramparts, basements or attics, exposed wooden details inside walls or other structural gaps, wall joints, exterior wooden components in decks, fences or sidings, canals in damaged wood, in spaces between wooden elements of the structure, and junctions between timber and foundations. Apply this product in commercial and residential structures and other non-structural wooden structures subject to termite or wood-infesting insect attacks.
A termite inspection done by a pest control professional can help pinpoint the exact areas for termite control concerns.
When To Use
Apply at the first sign of an infestation, and you’ll be sure to see quick and effective results every time. This termiticide is undetectable by types of termites. It also expands at a ratio of 30:1 to ensure that it reaches even the hardest-to-reach areas or closed spaces such as wall voids, floor joists, and the inner sanctuary of termite galleries.
This termite-killing foam is effective against killing ants, carpenter bees, wood-infesting beetles, drywood termites, and subterranean termites.

Manufacturers advise not to apply this product on open or exposed surfaces or in areas that are accessible to children. Also, after using this product, try to keep children and pets away until dry. To store the product, follow the instructions given on the label by the manufacturer. It is also recommended to avoid using the product where electrical shock hazards exist or in the vicinity of heat pipes, ducts, water, and sewer lines. Re-applying this product to a previously treated site or site before three months should be avoided unless re-infestation is observed or suspected.
Premise Foam comes in an 18-once can with a nozzle connected to a flexible tube/straw and two plastic tip fittings for easy access to the termite galleries.
How long does Premise Foam last?
Premise foam has been shown to last 3-5 years after application inside wall voids and other areas away from sunlight and moisture.
Which is better Termidor or Premise?
Both products can deliver different results depending on the soil type. Termidor termite products typically work better in moist soil types, while Premise works better in dry soil.
How do you use premise foam for termites?
This product needs to be touched by the termites, and the termites are inside the wood. You need to drill directly into the damaged wood and foam into the wood, not into the void. You should apply this product directly into the wood where termite activity exists.
Can Premise Foam Termiticide be used to treat an ongoing termite infestation?
Premise Foam is an excellent product for spot treatment along wood beams and cracks and crevices between subfloors for current live termite infestation. While bait stations are a good option for outdoor termite treatment, they do not provide continuous barrier treatment.
Apply at the first sign of termites or termite damage, and you’ll be sure to see quick and effective results every time. Premise foam termiticide is undetectable by termites. It also expands at a ratio of 30:1 to ensure that it reaches even the hardest-to-reach areas such as wall cavities and wall voids, floor joists, and the inner sanctum of termite galleries or termite colonies. Its long-lasting residue provides long-term termite control. Overall, it’s one of the best termite foams out there today, and it’s worth investing your time and your money.
