Use iSTRIKE when you see wood boring beetles, carpenter bees, subterranean or drywood termites, or listed ants. iSTRIKE kills on contact as the foam expands to fill the galleries, voids and holes and leaves a residual to continue protection.
The easy-to-use can comes with an applicator hose and two tips: one for narrow cracks and crevices or small holes, and a wide tip for larger holes and wider area application.
This product is for application to insect galleries in damaged wood, in spaces between wooden structural members or in voids within the construction.
Apply iSTRIKE to use sites when listed pests are seen or found.
The locations that are intended for treatment may include, but are not limited to:
This product is also for use in residential structures subject to termite or wood-infesting insect attack.
Subterranean Termites: Use iSTRIKE a localized treatment to control infestations in above-ground areas of the structure. Apply foam into the galleries or voids in termite-damaged wood, or in the spaces between termite damaged wooden structural members and between the sill plate and foundation where wood is vulnerable.
Drywood Termites, Wood Infesting Beetles or Borers: Use iSTRIKE to control drywood termites, wood-infesting beetles or borers (including powder post beetles, anobiid or deathwatch beetles, false powder post beetles, old house borers, wharf borers, or ambrosia or bark beetles). Apply iSTRIKE into voids or channels in damaged wood of a structure, or to cracks, crevices, and spaces in and between wooden portions of a structure or between wood and the foundation, and in locations vulnerable to attack such as crawl spaces.
Carpenter Bees: Use iSTRIKE as a localized treatment and apply foam directly into gallery entrance holes. Following treatment, the entrance holes may be plugged with a suitable material.
Ant Infestations (except for carpenter, pharaoh, fire and harvester): Use iSTRIKE as a localized treatment to control or suppress ants in houses and other structures. Apply a sufficient quantity of foam by crack and crevice application. Apply enough foam to sufficiently cover the area, but do not allow excessive dripping or run-off to occur. When ant nests are located in decks, treat the interior cavity containing the nest site by injecting a sufficient quantity to cover the area. Inject iSTRIKE into voids where ants or their nests are present, or other places where they enter the structure or where they may have been seen or found. When ant nest sites are located in tree hollows or nonstructural wooden constructions (e.g., posts, fences, decks), treat the interior cavity containing the nest site by injecting a sufficient quantity of foam to cover the area.
The active ingredient in iSTRIKE is imidacloprid, a systemic insecticide that acts on the central nervous system of insects by disrupting an insect's nervous system so its nerves can't send a regular transmission signal. This damages the nervous system, leading to paralysis and death. Because imidacloprid binds far more strongly to insect neuron receptors than to those of mammals and birds, it is much more toxic to insect pests.
