The granular didn't work AT ALL? What did you use? Talstar works pretty good, and it's labeled for that... See if you can get that brand, without having to get a ton of it.

The Termidor foam won't work, there's not enogh of it in the foam. The Termidor is only carried on the OUTSIDE of the bubbles, and that's a TINY amount, so unless you buy a TON of it (EXPENSIVE!) it just isn't enough.

You COULD use regular Termidor, (Termidor EC) but that would be off-label, and the bottle ($80 or so) is more than you would need.

I know you have a regular exterminator, so maybe you can talk him into doing it ($5 or $10 tip?). (You're not suppose to use it except on the OUTSIDE of a structure.) If your patio is attached to the structure, maybe that would be ok... If he won't do the Termidor thing, get him to do Talstar, I'm sure he has that, it's in every exterminators kit bag.
