Taurus SC Insecticide - Termiticide

Taurus SC Insecticide and Termiticide with 9.1 % Fipronil has the same active ingredient and label as the well known Termidor SC. Taurus SC is a non-repellent insecticide labeled for termite treatments and for home perimeter treatments. Since Taurus is a non-repellent, the insects do not know it is there, so they don't make attempts to avoid it. They will cross over it, and consume or spread Taurus SC throughout the entire colony. It is a water-based suspension concentrate for pre and post-construction termite applications, and to control perimeter pests.

Taurus SC will eliminate termite colonies in 2 to 3 months on average. As an ant control product, Taurus SC is proven to be a very effective ant killer working in just a couple of weeks. Taurus SC is labeled for outdoor use only.

Taurus SC Not Only Kills Termites

In addition the termites, Taurus SC controls a wide variety of insects including ants, spiders, roaches, centipedes, millipedes, ticks, and many more. It is labeled for barrier applications that targets occasional invaders around structures.

Taurus SC & Termite Control

Termite treating the outer perimeter of a structure is basically a matter of treating all of the soil next to the structure. This is usually fairly easy to do. Simply dig a small trench against the foundation of the home 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep is the recommended size.Then apply Taurus SC termiticide into the trench at the rate of 4 gallons of diluted chemical per 10 linear feet at a 0.06% dilution rate.

With most homes this easy job becomes a bit more complicated when you have concrete slabs that meet the building. These most common areas are garages, porches, and patios. Since the soil next to the foundation is covered by the concrete, you must drill through the concrete in order to access and treat the soil. The drill holes should be no farther apart than 12 inches and should be within 6 inches of the foundation. We prefer to use 1/2 inch diameter holes because they are small enough to drill fairly easily, yet large enough to allow the chemical to pass through quickly. The use of a rotary hammer drill is highly recommended. If you don't have a suitable drill you can rent one at most large home improvement stores. Even though the slabs you will drill through are rarely deeper than 6 inches, I can tell you from experience that an 18 inch long bit will keep you from bending over as much and will reduce the strain on your back.

Taurus SC & Ant Control

Taurus SC is an excellent insecticide for ant control. Mix 0.8 oz of Taurus per gallon of water in a pump sprayer. Spray around the house 18 inches up the side of your house and 18 inches out from the house setting up a perimeter. Spray 18 inches around where listed pests(including ants) enter, trail around the structure or where they crawl and hide. Make sure to remove vegetation that may be touching the house so the ants and other pests won't be able to bypass the ant treatment.

Spray with Taurus SC mixture in other entry points, such as, doors (don't spray near door handles), windows, pipes, cracks, vents, holes, etc. Make sure to treat the joint where exterior siding (wood, vinyl, aluminum or other similar materials) meets the cement, brick or block foundation. Treat anywhere electrical, cable or telephone wires enter the house. 

Apply Taurus SC only twice a year according to label instructions. Spring and Fall times would be ideal application times.

Perimeter Pest Treatments With Taurus SC

  • For perimeter pest treatments, mix a 0.06% spray dilution of TAURUS SC by filling the treatment tank 1/4 to 1/3 full with water and add 0.8 fluid ounces of TAURUS SC. Apply 0.06% of finished TAURUS SC dilution as a low-pressure spray. Spray the exterior of the structure where listed pests enter, trail around the structure or where they crawl and hide. Also apply Taurus SC solution around any exterior openings where listed pests could enter the structure such as around doors, windows, vents, pipes, foundation cracks or drilled holes.
  • Make sure to treat the joint where exterior siding (wood, vinyl, aluminum or other similar materials) meets the cement, brick or block foundation. Treat anywhere electrical, cable or telephone wires enter the house. This treatment should be made as a general surface spray, crack and crevice spray, or a wall void application. TAURUS SC may be applied as a foam treatment into wall voids to kill and / or control the above listed pests. Apply 2 quarts of 0.06% finished spray of TAURUS SC per 160 linear feet.

    Nests found on the ground within 1 foot of the foundation may be treated. Vegetation touching the structure may offer a route for the entry of ants into the structure without coming into contact with the treatment; therefore, remove or prune away any shrubbery, bushes, and tree branches touching the structure

Review by Judy / (Posted on 6/18/2015)
Works exactly as described
We had several locations in our home where termites broke through the drywall having eaten every bit of the paper backing and silicon chalk base as well as insulation paper. We had a termite company which had placed stations and drilled through the floor to put in their pesticide. This worked in a limited way for a limited time. Then they broke through again, having eaten all the way around the wood back door frame. Having replaced the door and back wall, we put this inside as it was replaced as well as the barrier around our home. Not only has it worked for us in the termite problem, but has also reduced all other pests to zero. No ants, no spiders, and no cockroaches! We find the occasional dead ones out on the driveway, but none inside. Thank you!

Great knowledge, great customer service and super fast shipping.
Super grateful to have found this company and can't say enough about their expertise, customer service and shipping. We have sub-T termites, super aggressive and they saved me hundreds of dollars by offering an alternative to the overpriced Name Brand Terminex and they backed up Taurus with real industry results. I can't comment on Taurus SC's results just yet but the formulation is exactly the same as local Pest Control companies use so we should see results. Huge thanks to the team at DIY Pest Control. Bravo!

AMAZING!!!!!!
I cannot believe it!!! Years of being overrun by field ants and hundreds of dollars later, I suddenly came across this and read the reviews. I must say I was skeptical at first (since nothing else worked). But I ordered it. WOW. I mean WOW!!! True to its reviews this stuff works! Sprayed it on the areas where ants were coming from, and two days later it's like a dead zone.....not ONE ant ANYWHERE. NOT ONE. Blown away. Here it is a month later and still NADA. For me it's the best $45 I ever spent and it doesn't take much....I did the whole yard and still have half a bottle left. Thank you DIY Pest Control and Taurus SC I can enjoy my wonderful yard once again!!!! Oh yeah and it works for termites too haha.

Taurus SC Insecticide
Taurus SC Insecticide seem to do the trick, we don't see anymore ants around our plants or crawling on the cement. Also, we sprayed a tree we very much treasured and that seemed to be infested with the carpenter ants and so far we see no more damage to the tree. Sure hope they continue to stay away, we love our trees!! Thank you!

UNBELIEVABLE PRODUCT & SUCCESS
Have been fighting ants for over a year now. I have used everything available and some would work for a week or so, or they simply moved to another part of the house. I read the reviews for the Taurus SC and thought I would give it a try, and so glad I did.

Within a day, & I do mean 1 DAY, no more ants!!!! And I have not seen one ant yet, even with all the rain we have been having lately [very above normal in Arkansas]. A few days of rain usually bring the ant columns into the house, but NOT ANY MORE.....

It Works!
We discovered termites in an interior wall in our home. After having a couple of different companies out it was determined the nest was under the slab in our living room. We ordered Taurus SC and within 24 hours of applying it we had a pile of dead termites in our living room. We are now termite free and have plenty leftover to do some prevention treatments to other parts of our property.

Great Product
I purchased this product as a last ditch effort to rid my home from sugar ants / ghost ants. I tried all of the sweet Tarro gels with little luck. I think it made them stronger. The only ones that died were the ones that got stuck to the gel. Anyway, this stuff works incredible. It rid the entire home of the problem within 3 to 4 days. Used this product on my girlfriends housed that she bought which was vacant for several months prior to her moving in. The next night, not a crawling creature anywhere on her exterior walls.

Enjoy bug free.

Perfect for DIYer....
Purchased this product to use as a barrier treatment for termites, since our initial treatment had lapsed. I, myself, did not have termites, however, the neighbors all around us had them and I figured it was only a matter of time until we did as well.

The hardest part was trenching around the perimeter of the house. Once complete, it was a matter of mixing the product with water, and pouring in the trenches.

If you're willing to sweat and do some labor, then this seems to be a good route to go.

Good stuff
I Found a nest of carpenter ants while I was replacing my front door. Needless to say I had to replace the sill cut that section out and replace it with new wood. I borrowed some bifron from a friend who bought it on this site and it worked. I liked it so much I decided to buy this product and spray the perimeter if my house. Found some dead ants a few days later in the house so I knew this stuff worked. After a few days no more live or dead ants were seen.

No More Ants
We were overrun by ants this year. Everywhere I turned I saw ants. I was becoming extremely frustrated by them. Everything I tried didn't work.

I was told by a fellow customer in our local home improvement store to check out Taurus SC Insecticide and visit this web site. This individual told me that he was overrun by ants, like me and now he never sees an ant. I ran home, punched up the web site and liked what I saw and made my purchase.

I applied Taurus SC Insecticide as the instructions laid out and in 48 hours ALL of our ants were gone! No more ants in the house or around my home! Period.

Get this product you will NOT be sorry!

Builder said to put it in some additional spots - don't know if that was in instructions or not. But did that, and the next day, the ones we saw under wood in the yard were all dead. So far, so good!

It WORKS!
My husband and I got this after seeing all the great reviews. We live in a suburban area in a townhouse. We were getting ants coming through the outlets and drains upstairs.

We sprayed the perimeter of our part of the building, the perimeter of the windows on the first floor, and any other ant trails we saw around the house (the back and front patios). I also killed the ants that we saw on the inside with a regular spray from the store and some baby powder. I wasn't sure how well the Taurus formula would work since I couldn't see a trail going INTO the house, and the ants we were getting were on the 2nd floor! Well, lo and behold, a week later, the ants were gone! It's been a month and a half since we sprayed and we still have no traces of ants. This stuff is AMAZING!

Extreme Killer On Our Ranch!!!
Purchase/Shipping was painless & very quick. Had read reviews prior to purchase & now make this declaration.....If You Do Not Have Amazing Results It's Due To Applicator Error!!!!! We live on a ranch 30 miles from the closest town & 12 miles from nearest neighbor. Being so remote we have Major Pest & Rodent Issues that require constant attention. We also have quarterly Pest Spraying. The Exceptional Drought we have had the last 3 years has taken us from 20 scorpion's per year to hundreds in & out of our house. Upon further inspection we found the termite's. Who knew scorpion's eat termite's?? Not us!!! This product has not only zapped the termites it is lethal to every bug that gets close to our house!! We also put down granuale's in the yard. Amazing to watch a scorpion crawl into the garage & in less than 5 minutes is flopping like a fish out of water!!! We highly recommend this product!! Slow down & read the instructions for an extreme kill!!!

Bought on recommendation from my vet for fleas
I bought at recommendation of my vet for fleas as me home had somehow become infected, even though my cats are inside only. This has been fairly effective but not completely.

As far as other pests in home, it has worked as advertised. The delivery came promptly.

I am only giving four stars because I continue to have the flea issue. I plan to try another product from Do-It-Yourself which they recommend specifically for my problem.

*******************
DIY Response: Thanks for your feedback. Taurus SC is not generally recommended for fleas because it is not labeled for use against them. While Taurus does contain fipronil, one of the main issues is that Taurus is only labeled for outdoor use.

Very good on ants.
Mixed at .8 oz per gallon and sprayed around all buildings about a foot up and out, and up to about 3 feet from ground all the way around all trees in yard. Sprayed with fine mist under high pressure with pull-behind sprayer 2 weeks ago. Have seen only isolated ants in places that I did not spray.

Works great
This works every bit as well as Termidor. These are the absolute best products on the market. When used with Maxforce gel bait, ants disappear for a long... long time. It also manages to kill off an assortment of other pests. Remember when using this: Do not use any kind of other pesticide other than the gel bait! Using a product like raid will stop this product from working. Also, do NOT over-mix. It will seem very watery, like dirty dish water, but it works perfectly. Results in two days, and by the end of the week, they will be completely gone. Absolutely the best. As a professional, Termidor and Taurus SC are the only products you'll ever need for ants.

No Brainer - Yes - Buy It!
I was drawn to this product due to the high number of endorsements, which simplified making a selection for recurring little black ants which had discovered the garbage bag under a sink. And which were not deterred by traditional retail junk. No regrets with the Taurus product. This concentrate (bought 20 oz and used about 2 grams) will outlive me translating to savings of time, money, frustration, and more! (So yes, this is an excellent product!)

Black Ants Making Sawdust
My first experience with ants in the house. After a very wet spring black ants began appearing in the living areas. Then sawdust on the floors below the exposed ceiling beams. I could see the sawdust falling but no signs of the critters at work. Two applications of Taurus SC on the beams put an end to this. Spayed the entire perimeter of the house where the siding meets the foundation wall. Have not spotted a single ant since the application.

Outstanding product and people
The people I talked to at DIY over in Suwanee were extremely helpful and pointed me towards Taurus SC. The product worked great! I followed the directions and spent a good bit of time applying the product. Within just a couple of days (maybe three days, but much faster than I expected) a horrendous outside infestation of Florida carpenter ants was gone! 3 of us homeowners at the end of my cul de sac had been fighting these ants that came back stronger every year. A local reputable pest control company had tried their best without success. It has been 3 weeks and except for 3 or 4 stragglers on day 5 or 6 .... no ants!! Thanks!

I had ants everywhere on the outside of my home. i tried every product that was on the shelves at lowes and home depot, i got tired of spending money until i found this product. i also bought defense dust and used it on small cracks and corners. the ants were gone in less than 48 hours. for the last few days i check every day every inch of the walls on the outside of my house, and i amazed that all of the ants are gone! this is amazing.. i will definitely continue buying from this site.

THIS STUFF ROCKED!
I had army's of ants around the exterior of my house and some finding their way in. I mixed this in a backpack pump sprayer and sprayed around the outside of the house about 4 ft up the walls and around windows and in 2 to 3 days all of the ants were gone.

Awesome product
This worked great! It cleared out the ants in a couple of days. Easy to apply. On the areas where I applied I have not seen any more come around. Product arrived quickly and company representatives helpful.

Florida Ants
Ordered the Taurus SC Insecticide and received it VERY quickly. It was well packed and I was extremely pleased with DIY service. The only MINOR issue I had was that the actual Taurus container didn't display the application instructions on the container so that the user could find them easily. But that's not DIY's fault. I simply looked on the internet and found the mixing ratio and method for applying. I've run into that same problem when buying Round Up and other products. Great job DIY, I'll order again.

********************
DIY RESPONSE: Glad you had a good experience. About the instructions, a more friendly version would be nice. Also we do provide pdf versions of the instructions at the bottom of the product web pages if you need them again. Thanks for the feedback.

Very good company and product
Ordered online and received it in less than a week. Used it to treat for active termites under my front porch. Hard to tell if it works as it takes some time for the colony to be affected, but should do the job. Mixed easily in a two gallon pump sprayer and applied quickly.
Much less expensive than the $1500 quote from a national company!

Awsome, was not expecting it to work so fast
I've used perimeter sprays over the last few years to keep the seasonal ants from invading the house. Normally i see the ants slowly disappear over a few days. However, after applying this stuff on Saturday morning the ants were nowhere to be seen by lunch time... simply awsome.

Great
Used this product with several of the neighbors for termite control last year. If you don't mind doing a little work you'll save hundreds of dollars. One neighbor had the termites and haven't seen any since. It also took care of everything else that was creeping around . Bought a second bottle to keep on hand understanding it has a long shelf life. Great prooduct

Used Taurus SC for my ant problem
My sister in Texas recommended Do It Yourself Pest Control for the problem I had with black ants. The black ants had taken over the entire exterior of my house. The problem got out of control when the ants were making there way inside my home. As soon as I used the product, about two months ago, it was like instant magic, not one ant in sight. The ants had initially taken over my garden, my lawn and my trees, they were also under my payver stones and in the little cracks in the cement outside. To this date I got my backyard back and I don't have to worry about having any ants crawling all over me when I step out into my garden. Also, I have shared this product with friends who were also amazed as to how quickly and efficient the product works.

worked great against crazy ants
applied as a building perimeter block and was effective. Used about $20 worth of the $50 bottle versus the commercial treatment quote of $250.

Great and safe product
Taurus is the generic equivalent of Termidor. I bought the 78 oz bottles and treated my home, a neighbor's and a relative's homes for termite control. It is a wonderful product and easy to use. The active ingredient is the same as in Frontline and Pronyl (fleas and ticks collars for companion animals). So, if it is safe to use on your house pets and small children will hug and stroke them then it would be safe to use by consumers. It sure is a lot cheaper than hiring an exterminator.
My home was treated three years ago. I do not believe I have termite infestation before the treatment and I do not know if the termite colonies are annihilated. But I did notice that the black carpenter ants that were frequently found in my yard are no longer present. So I presume this product knocked out all insects.
I also noticed spiders did not spin their webs properly and they also tend to be lethargic.

Non repellant is way to go
I own several rental houses as well as deal with my own place and this stuff is very effective with ants. I deal with roaches at the rentals and changed insecticide about every 3 months, but this stuff seems to have reduced that problem substantially. It takes awhile to do the job so be patient. I noticed it is the same insecticide as in the roach bate.

Effective Product That Is Easy To Use
We had tons of ants around our property and especially around the hardscaping in back, lots of stacked stone and brick and lots of places for bugs to thrive. Pest control companies wanted several hundred dollars per treatment and would not treat the stacked stone pool area because of liability. A quick visit to DIY Pest Control and a few mixed gallons of Taurus SC took care of the problem at a fraction of the cost. After the first treatment there were literally piles of ant carcasses in several areas. That was three summers ago. Now we treat outside two times per year, in early Spring and in early Fall. We like that this product is safe to use around our children and pets. The fellows at DIY Pest Control know their business have helped us without fail throughout the years, saving both money and time.

Termite work
Those guys at Do it yourself know what they are talking about. They
walked me thru the whole process. I have an old farm house and
the Orkin man would not touch it. Said it was not up to specks. What ever that means. I believe it worked.

Unbelievable
I've tried everything to control carpenter ants from my home - finally found the nest at the bottom of a honey locust tree - used this product and your bait - 24 hours and they are gone - can't believe it.
After trying everything - including Orkin coming out - nothing worked- one day with this stuff - and not a trace of ants - there were thousands of them on this thealthy tree (they only came out at night
so never discovered them)

not advisable to wipe out ghost ants
James,

The ghost ants are not gone. They're called ghost ants because once they have been killed, they return as ghostly spectres to "ghost" you. You'll be dead.

I ordered Taurus SC with complete confidence
I am impressed with the knowledge of products your staff has. I have called for information for many years with different concerns and have sometimes been helped by the same man (I know this because of his distinct accent). There is no way he could answer my questions as quickly as he does, unless this knowledge was in his memory. Quite an asset to your company. I ordered Taurus SC with complete confidence.

Very Helpful
I had come to DIY Pest Control for roach control, which they helped me solve. I had considered the termite treatment to be not so easy. I called them and the tech (Ken) was very helpful. I found out that I could do it my self and saved tons of money. I enjoyed watching the instructional video as well.

Outstanding
Had bad case of ghost ants and tried using Terro ant baits to control and eliminate. I think I was feeding the ants as they looked happy and content. I hired a pest control company at $350 service contract for the year. It worked and they were gone. Due to the economy the pest control was to much. 6 months later the ghost ants were back. Desperate, I found this website and the Taurus SC. It has eliminated the ghost ants at a fraction of the cost. 1oz of Taurus makes just over a gallon of mix which covered the perimeter of my home. I figure twice a year, I have 10 years of pest control for $55.00
Great stuff. Not just ants. No bugs anywhere along my foundation. Good customer service too.

Finally rest from the ants.
I live in north Texas, DFW area. I have tried for eight past years to reduce the ants in my land. I used many different available products from many stores around - any one not was working full and permanently. Ants killed grass, trees and visit also my home ... finally I find the right product - Taurus SC. I was looking for lower price but if I calculated, I save with Taurus SC. Now I do not see any ants and also other insect are gone. We, all are happy. I recommend this product for everybody.

Awesome on ants and awesome crew
Walked in to the Chamblee location and picked up a bottle of this to control some odiferous ants that I had been trying to control with the baits and pestisides you get at the local home centers. None of them worked but Taurus SC worked perfectly! One treatment and they are GONE, FINALLY! :) The guys at the Chamblee store are awsome too. very friendly and knowledgeable!

Got rid of my ant problem
I had tried some different cheapo products like terro and combat to get rid of the ants in my kitchen and laundry room. It seems like terro used to work really well when I was a kid, but it had no affect on these ants. I finally dropped the cash and got this stuff. A guy there said to spray it around the outside perimeter of my house. A few weeks later and the ants are gone. Glad to find this stuff.
