Thanks for the fast response. I was concerned about the diluted amount of active material as well and mentioned that to them. They said (both guys on the crew of three) agreed that the foam was sufficient and was applied per the label. They said if I see any activity to let them know right away. The problem is that it will be very difficult to see any activity unless I happened to see more of my wood floor destroyed. They did mention I should wait at least three months to do the floor repair. Are you suggesting they should drill around this area and pump the liquid form? Of the companies I had come out that use Termidor, only one suggested drilling pluming areas for treatment (which I liked since drilling through my recently new tile had me concerned) (obviously I did not go with the drilling company). When I questioned the effectiveness of foam only, these non drilling folks stated this stuff is the best stuff they have ever seen and have had very very few retreats. Iím still scratching my head: if Termidor is really that good. They also said the lower dose will allow more termites to be infected before the termites close down that path. Is all this BS? Do you have any references or application notes that I can use to show that foam is not sufficient?

Thanks
Mike
