I wouldn't even worry about it, the holes in the vanity back up to the original wall where there is a tiny gap around the pipes. Caulk around the pipes if you're worried about bugs. Liquid Nails works really great for filling gaps and holes too, repaired the rusted out fenders on my old Ford with wire mesh and Liquid Nails, No Chit! LOL
    I agree with caulking around the pipes for bugs and move on...

    Question: If a plumber creates a hole in the drywall for pipe, who is generally responsible to fill in around the hole with caulk or other covering? Is it the plumber, or would it be someone in the finishing trades? Same question could apply to an electrician who pulls wires through a hole in the wall.
    I am only a service plumber....so no carpenter skills.....done by others....

      I sure wish people would stop calling foam-in-a-can "spray-foam"...

      Spray foam is SPRAY applied, it doesn't goop out of the end of a straw.

        then what would you have us call it? Just like spray paint.

        It's, spray foam.

        And as for the holes in the sheetrock, I tell them to call a drywall finisher dude, cause Ireally really suck at it, plus I have to carry enough **** on the truck as it is. Nevermind carrying sheetrock, mud tape, tools to do that crap, and whatever else there is.

          It's foam in a can.

          Spray paint is spray applied too...

          I don't really see how you figure the term "spray" can be used when the stuff just sort of pukes out of the tube on the can.

          Where are you from that you've never seen real spray-foam before?
