What Is Foam?
Evo Foam is unique as a company because we use foam exclusively for all our pest control services. Foaming has been around for decades. However, it gained prominence in the 1980s as the most effective system for eliminating termites. With the advent of non-repellent termite control products, foaming products faded to the background. However, during the 1990s, the need for foams that could fill voids and eliminate a broader spectrum of pests created updates and improvements in the 21st century. We only use the best of this technology.
When creating our foaming agent, we simply add water to create the foam, after which we fill it with insecticides. The foam essentially acts as a carrier of insecticides, taking it deep into the source of the infestation. Insecticides have active ingredients that infect the insect. The foam penetrates and dissipates the outer cuticle of the insect, leaving it without its protection and allowing the insect to absorb the insecticide. Also, the insect will reach its demise by dehydration of loss of water from the breakdown of the outer cuticle. Foam also adheres to surfaces that water mixed will not and will stay there until it dissipates and ultimately leaving the insecticides active ingredients particulates behind. The insect either absorbs the active particulate or in the course of grooming themselves ingests it. This is why we can use less concentrated insecticidal mix rates. It leaves behind more active particulates than traditional water mixed formulations.
Evo Foam uses a special product called ProFoam Platinum, a biodegradable foam formulation designed to conserve on water, time, and money. It's a thick, non-ionic foam that can travel smoothly through cracks, crevices, under concrete slabs, wall voids, vertical and horizontal surfaces, indoors and outdoors-any place where pests generally make their home. This foam is able to reach places which liquid treatments simply cannot. Additionally, our product is a non-toxic blend of surfactants and adjutants, making it friendly on the environment.
