Welcome to Do-It-Yourself Pest Control

Taurus SC Insecticide

Walt Cline - Pest Control Professional Pro Tip: "No product has ever dealt with ants and termites more effectively than Taurus SC. For termites you should expect it to work for up to 10 years. If you do termite work yourself, make sure to order the tech book or call us for tips.

Taurus SC may only be used outside. For complete ant control using Taurus SC, we suggest the Non-Repellent Ant Kit, that has Spectre PS Aerosol for use inside. One 78 oz bottle nets out 46-96 gallons (120-240 linear feet) For active infestations I go to the stronger mixing rate (1.6 oz per gallon of water).

Buy it
Because I'm cheap, I was trying to avoid paying $40 for pest control. Instead, I tried the Ortho Home Defense and the Ortho granular stuff you put in the grass; neither of them did anything to get rid of my carpenter ants. I finally bit the bullet and bought this stuff...well, the only carpenter ant I've seen since area the dead ones. I have not seen a moving carpenter ant since the night I sprayed it.

If you're delaying purchasing this like I was, don't, just buy it, it's well worth it.

Satisfied Consumer
We tried everything at Home Depot and Menards for carpenter ants and nothing worked. Then we purchased the Taurus insecticide and the defense dust and wow...the ants started to die within 2 days. I mean there were alot of ants making homes in our basement wood, but not anymore thanks to this stuff. I am extremely satisfied! Nothing works better!

Insect Ghost Town
I have applied one application of Taurus on the foundation, including bilco door entry, and days after, I noticed what was typically a bustling insect population - had become a ghost town. So far, I am very satisfied with the results...

Amazed at the quality/value of this stuff
Excellent phone customer service with a question I had on the mixing ratio of the product. Had a recurring problem with carpenter ants for a few years and always used other store insect/ant killer and baits with poor results. Fixed the moist and damaged fascia and roof sections that they made home, then sprayed the Taurus in areas where they trailed and around perimeter of home foundation, outside doors, windows, gutters, etc. Checked back every day in same areas where they were seen, and after less than a week, not one ant. This stuff is the best because it binds to what is sprayed and they unknowingly track it back to their nests. It has been almost 2 months and I rarely notice any other bugs around my house outside. A little goes a long way with the Taurus. I will use it in the future for preventative measures, sprayed twice a year.

Got the job done!
Per my professional exterminator's advice, I used Taurus SC to treat a very large fire ant colony near my garden. I watched a Youtube video and followed those directions. It worked beautifully the first treatment.

Save yourself some money!
Got sick of relying on exterminators and paying outrageous prices to get rid of carpenter ants. I got rid of them and this year I treated the perimeter of my house so they wouldn't come back. So far, I have not seen one carpenter ant in the house. Way more cost effective and easy to do with a simple pump sprayer.

Ants? Forget about it!
While I can't comment on the longevity or how well it works for termites, this product eliminated my ant problem, immediately, with one application. The instructions seemed directed specifically for termites but a quick call, to customer service, gave me the dilution and application information required.

Actually Works
This stuff is the real deal. The sprays most major retailers have is not even close.
