Non-repellent Insecticides for Ant Control
When choosing an insecticide to use against ants, there are two types to choose from: Repellent insecticides and non-repellent insecticides. Non-repellents are the overwhelmingly popular choice these days, and with good reason. Ants can’t detect these “invisible” insecticides and, therefore, readily crawl through them. As these ants return to the nest, they are unknowingly tracking the insecticide with them and transferring it to their nest mates. Over time, this eliminates all of the ants including the queen. While this method is slower than some, it usually results in complete eradication of the ant colony.
Spray around the foundation of your house and other entry points such as around doors, windows and exterior openings such as where electrical or cable wires connect.

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 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 exterminate termite colonies in a little as 3 months on average. As an ant control product it is proven to be a very effective ant killer working in just a couple of weeks.Learn More

Use this ant control kit to treat ants inside and outside with the non repellent insecticides, Taurus SC and Phantom Aerosol. Using a pest control method with non repellent insecticides for ant control is superior over repellent insecticides, because the ants can not detect its presence. If ants can detect an insecticide, they will choose to go around it and enter the structure in another manner. With non repellent insecticides, the ants go thru the chemicals without avoiding it. As they go thru the Taurus and Phantom, the foraging ants are covered with the insecticide, taking it back to the nest to share with other ants.Learn More
