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).

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.

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.

In addition to termite control, Taurus SC controls a wide variety of insects including ants, roaches, centipedes, spiders, millipedes, ticks, and many more. It is labeled for barrier applications that target 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. Six inches wide and 6 inches deep is the recommended size.
  • Apply Taurus SC termiticide into the trench at the rate of 4 gallons of diluted chemical per 10 linear feet at a 0.06%-0.125% dilution rate. Use this rate for 1 foot of depth.
  • We recommend the strongest strength allowed (0.125%) dilution rate for termite control. For this rate you mix 1.6 oz per gallon of water.

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 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 (0.06% dilution rate) 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, the trail around the structure or where they crawl and hide (where ants are found crawling on structures ). 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 two-four times a year according to label instructions (finished solution percentages may change on frequency of use-see table below).

Treatments with Taurus SC should be applied during all the processes of treatment in the soil; up to the final grade installation. Use Taurus SC at the dilution rate of .125% Fipronil as a chemical barrier. Apply at the rate of 4 gallons of finished solution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth for termites.

Slab Treatments-Monolithic, Floating, Supported Concrete Slabs on Ground or in Basements and Crawl Spaces Horizontal treated zones:

  • It is necessary to cover the entire surface that the concrete slab will be poured. This includes carports, porches, garage, basement floors, walkways, and any extended entrances and walkways.Use the rate of 1-1.5 gallons of finished solution per 10 square feet. Use a coarse spray nozzle with a low-pressure. Spray uniformly over the entire area.
  • Vertical Zones: These zones are any thing that penetrates the slab, such as utility service and plumbing lines. Use the rate of 4 gallons of finished Taurus SC solution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth along the outside perimeter and inside perimeter of foundation walls.
  • See label for more instructions for pre construction treatment with Taurus SC


Post Construction Termite Treatments with Taurus SC


Applicator must trench and rod with Taurus SC along foundational walls, foundation elements and pillars. Use it at the rate on the label. If footing is more than 4 feet below grade, treat to a minimum of 4 feet below grade. Use 4 gallons of Taurus SC mixture per 10 linear feet.


Concrete Slab over soil:

Exterior: Trench or rod along foundational walls with Tarus SC 4 gallons per 10 linear feet. Treat Taurus SC  to a minimum depth of 4 feet if footing is more than 4 feet below grade. Trench 6 inches wide with a minimum of 6 inches deep

See label for more instructions for post construction treatment with Taurus SC


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. Refer to the "Foam Application" section of this label for specific foam mixing and application instructions.
  • Except for foam applications made into wall voids, application is limited to an area 1 foot out from and 1 foot up from were the ground meets the foundation. Do not exceed a maximum of 2 applications per year.

    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

Taurus SC
fast, friendly service. have not used the product yet, will be using it tomorrow. with everything I have read on the internet it should be a great product.. Just want to give the people at DO YOUR OWN PEST CONTROL a BIG SHOUT OUT. Great people to work with.. :)
Review by Dave / (Posted on 9/24/2020)
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.
Review by Carl / (Posted on 8/14/2020)
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!

Review by All gone / (Posted on 7/18/2020)
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...
Review by KAA / (Posted on 7/7/2020)
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.
Review by Dee / (Posted on 7/3/2020)
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.
Review by Abos / (Posted on 7/2/2020)
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.

Taurus SC has proven very effective for fire ant control
Used product as recommended for fire ant control. Two months after application, I have seen no mounds or signs of fire ants. I consider this a complete success! Will buy this product again.
Review by LaJr / (Posted on 10/19/2019)
One treatment killed all ants for a year.
Wow. This stuff has totally eliminated all fire ants on my property for the entire year w only one treatment. I live in central Louisiana in the country about 4 lots. I can now walk around bare footed. My friend told me it worked two yrs for him. Had a lot of rain but didn’t wash it away. I hate ants and love this stuff.
Review by Mr. Vince / (Posted on 10/1/2019)
Application went as per plan
Product arrived promptly. Application was as depicted in video, in other words, there were not tricks that needed to be mastered in order to apply. Product was used as a termite barrier. Decided on this manufacturer due to product cost and information that termite treatment was good for up to ten years.
Review by Mark / (Posted on 10/1/2019)
This stuff was the answer to an ant problem we had been fighting all summer! They were actually coming in from the roof!! After a mild winter and a hot, rainy summer, we were infested with ants! We treated the yard and set out bait traps but they kept coming! We couldn't figure it out. Finally, my husband noticed a hoard of ants all over a tree close to the house. They were using the limbs that hung barely over the corner of the roof to avoid the treated yard. I sprayed the outside of the house with Taurus SC 3 weeks ago and my husband took the tree down last week. It worked! I haven't seen anymore ants!! YAY!!!
Review by Tiffany / (Posted on 9/4/2019)
Another area where we have had continuous termite activity will be more telling for effectiveness.
Of course, it is too soon to determine if the Taurus is working yet. I will monitor for termite activity (mud tunnels, etc). The mixing and application were very straight forward as well as instructions.
Review by Skull and bones / (Posted on 9/4/2019)
Knocked out Carpenter ants
Used product with pump sprayer as indicated with water. Sprayed side walls of foundation and up towards stucco to try and get underneath it a little. Also sprayed patio where it meets the house, around base of hot tub and around window sills.

Haven't seen a Carpenter ant since. Thought maybe I'd see one or two, but nothing. This product worked well. I didn't have an infestation, but I would see them around the base of the house and crawling around the back patio.

I highly recommend this product.
Review by George / (Posted on 8/20/2019)
Works well
Have be using Taurus SC for several years to control several kinds of ants near the house and along a very long concrete driveway. It works very well. After a couple of months, ants will migrate in from surrounding properties starting near the street, but another application stops them cold.
Review by Jeff / (Posted on 7/23/2019)
Can't beat the service nor products of do your own pest control!
I have used this for several years at families properties and even or place at the lake. Eliminate that intrusive line of ants, use as a preventive treatment for termites, even spray yard for mosquitoes. All you need is to lightly mist the area.
Review by Tommy / (Posted on 7/10/2019)
Really works
I have used this for several years. It really lasts. After an application bugs will still die after 3 months. Prevents termites when sprayed along the perimeter of your house. I really trust this product.
Review by GVLiving / (Posted on 7/9/2019)
This stuff is amazing
Our cabin in the woods had a few dozen carpenter ants inside each day and becaust the place is unoccupied much of the year, they were well entrenched. The cabin is 100 years old and made of logs so it is filled with cracks and small gaps to the outside. Kind of hopeless, huh? Sprayed the perimeter, outside walls and window/door frames once and then started seeing 50-100 very sick ants inside every day. That went on for several weeks and then...no ants at all. I only used 1.6 oz! This stuff is amazing.
Review by reviewer5 / (Posted on 7/8/2019)
Only Product I have found to be effective.
These things can multiply faster than a rabbit, they will not take common ant bait. They are extremely difficult to control. Taurus is the only thing truly effective. It takes about three days once you have applied but it is absolute control. How long it lasts depends on several factors including how much it rains. You cannot treat every home in your neighborhood but if they are prevalent they will come back. Continuous treatment (according to label directions is the key to control. I personally like the twice a year with the stronger dose, my last treatment lasted about five months. If you don't retreat quickly once you see them in 30 days they will take over your house, your yard, and even your cars. They are small enough to go anywhere it is sort of startling to watch them appear on the second floor from a light switch.

Review by Milton / (Posted on 6/15/2019)
Great Product
My pole building(garage) was full of carpenter ants, both inside and around the foundation. I followed the clear instructions and mixed up four gallons of Taurus SC. I sprayed both inside and outside of the garage and used about three gallons of Taurus. I had enough left to spray the outside foundation of my house. Within one day, there was not one live ant to be seen. That was three weeks ago and they are GONE. East to measure bottle and enough product for next year. Five stars. Last year I used your boring bee powder with similar results. I will never hire an exterminator again.
Review by Rimmy / (Posted on 6/14/2019)
Works Well on Carpenter Ants
I used the Taurus SC outside and it worked well and it killed ants which crossed the sprayed barrier. In addition, I used a borate bait inside to kill the colony (and the queen), you need to do both. After two to three weeks, no ants.
I have used doyourownpestcontrol.com products for several years now. The advice and their products are great and you know what chemicals are being sprayed around your house.
Review by Barry / (Posted on 6/4/2019)
Perfect for ants
Worked great as described. Had a white footed ant infestation. Made one application around house and worked. Ants were pushed back after three days. I made a second application a bit further out around the house the following week, and now cannot find any ants. This review is three week post application and still ant-free!

My new go-to insecticide.

Solution to my problem
After finding evidence of termites, I looked for a lower cost to treat the problem. Do It Yourself Pest Control had the answer; Taurus SC.
I applied as per the directions and so far there is no more evidence
of termites. I would recommend this product and also Do It Yourself.
Review by JR in Texas / (Posted on 5/17/2019)
This product works very well!
I have been using this product for several years now, and it works great! I live in the Chicago area, and at the first sign of ants in the house, I spray. I usually only need to spray once in the spring, and then I spray once in the fall if need be. I highly recommend it!
Review by JB / (Posted on 5/17/2019)
Gets the job done!
I used Taurus SC outside and bait inside. The ghost ants outside died within a week and there was no activity in the ground. The ants inside took 4 weeks of baiting, but activity also stopped. Haven't seen one in almost a year.

This company is very knowledgeable. Call them if you have questions.

Kills all sorts of bugs not just ants and termites.
A bug doesnt know that its an ant or termite, i have used this product for years living in Florida, Now i live in Alabama i have a different set of bug issues like carpenter bees. I tried traps and glue sheets and didnt catch one. So i treated my wood framed workshops with taurus sc and within 3 days they are all gone, so are the red hornets

Five Stars ***** !!!!! Kills Tawny Brown 'Crazy' Ants (Southern US)
Do not mistake this ant for the common 'sweet ant' .... it is not THAT type of any. This is an invasive ant from South America, This has been a 7 year battle for us. The former homeowner was a landscaper and used the property to dump all kinds of ant infested wood/veg material. Tried "Suspend"... which was "OK" and a few others. Very expensive with little to no impact. Then I tried Taurus SC...wow...I've never had zero ants at the edge of my patio slab. Usually a spray would just slow them down. This stuff actually kills them. In FL we have sandy soil so if you have clay it may be more difficult to get to the nest. Treat the edges of slabs, stones, posts. I use a 'stream' setting (not a mist)
Great product...safer too, since I'm using LESS.

Easy and Economical
Easy enough to use and economical. You do have to prepare by obtaining good equipment and there is labor involved in digging a 6x6 inch trench around the foundation of your house, but if you can make the proper preparations (watch some D-I-Y videos, read the field manual, etc.), you can knock this out in 1-2 days over the weekend with protection of your home for 5 years or more. What a weight off my shoulders!

Florida "Crazy Ant" or "Tawny Brown Ant"
We're in SW Florida. Prior house owner was a landscaper who hauled wood debris and piled in the yard. (This is how these invasive ant spreads. It's from South America and came through TX. Looks like a classic brown 'Sweet Ant" but this one will eat the insulation off your wires! It does not eat above ground. Millions of queens.)

Was using Bayer's "Suspend"....OK but not great!
Taurus SC is the only product that stopped them cold. I mean 'zero' observable ants after one application! Buy it, it works!

Argentine Black Ants? - Dead
I'm a homeowner in the heart of urban Orange County, Ca, and legend says Argentine black ants are one big super-colony, from the Mexican border all the way through LA. I've battled a sizable nest of these tiny black ants dug-in all along the foundations of my back and side property walls, every season, for years.

I applied Taurus SC in a strong mixture as described along the foundation walls on my property... and they disappeared within a week. Dead. No more ants in the house. No patrols across the kitchen counters, no scouts looking for a water source around the tub and showers. Dead. There aren't even any ants on my trash cans outside. I've tried every big box store bait and poison you can buy, and I've done it every year to little effect. This was the ticket. They appear to be so wiped out, I'm not sure I'll see them for a year or two. If they come back, I'm ready.

Excellent Product - Strange Situation
Taurus SC: I have been fighting ants outside my Miami slab built house for about 5 years. I have tried every product sold at Home Depot (concentrates, pre-mixed, baits, granules, sprays, gels, etc.) and have only had a few days of no ants and then they’re back in full force. After reading so many good things about Taurus SC, I thought, sure why not? On July 2, 2018, I sprayed Taurus SC according to directions up the side of my house, a foot around my house, driveway and patios, and I also sprayed the window sills.

By July 4th, there were NO visible ants to be found anywhere around the exterior of my house! And today, July 24th all I saw around the exterior of my house were 5 ants – amazing! This product has performed above and beyond my expectations!

An interesting thing has happened though that I don’t understand and I hope to get some feedback/ideas here. On Saturday, July 14th, hundreds, if not thousands, of black ants started to come into my house!!! I believe they are coming up from the slab (I have always suspected I had colonies of ants under the slab). For the past ten days every morning, and again in the evening, I go to my house to vacuum up hundreds of dead ants. There has not been any let up in the amount of ants constantly entering my house – I have had to move out of my house!

I don’t understand what’s going on. If this product is supposed to be non detectable to the ants (no taste/smell, etc) why are these ants not going outside, since I still see no ants outside, and they are coming inside the house to die?

I feel I don’t need to put out any more insecticide in any form in or outside of my house since these ants all die inside my house – has anyone had any similar experience? Does anyone have any idea as to what’s happening – what can I do? I would love to be able to move back into my house soon!

Thank you.

Carpenter Ant Relief
I purchased an off-the-grid log cabin in a forested area of northern Michigan. There had been some previous logging near the cabin site which left stumps that became home to carpenter ants. It became clear during inspection that these ants, actively present around the foundation, were a threat to the structure if left unchecked. I researched treatments before choosing this product. In the ten days since application, the live ants have disappeared. I have found a few dead ants inside the cabin, evidence that they had already bored into the structure. I will now continue with regularly scheduled treatments in order to protect my investment. Based upon my experience, I believe that Taurus SC is as good as advertised. Money well spent...

Sprayed the foundation and an area about 2 feet out from the foundation, and about a week later, no more ants. It's been a few weeks as of this review, and still no ants. We were lucks in that when we did see ants, there were only a few each week - none now!

GREAT ! ! !
Bought a new home. It had some termite evidence. Had it sprayed.
Moved in and found tons more termites plus 3 huge bushes along side of house had colonies of them !

One application ( ya- I mixed it on the strong side just in case ) -
no more termites.

I mean to say NOTHING is moving out there !! Sprayed shop, sprayed perimeter of house, around the outside doors and windows and if I see anything at all anymore - it is DEAD INSECTS !

Used to use Bifen XTS without problem but wanted to try this stuff based on reviews. Still use Bifen IT for inside spraying ( I don't like bugs )
Pleased with every product I have purchased from this company
- PLUS- there is TONS of good info here as well.

Great Product.
I used this to kill termites and it does the job. I talked to many pesticide stores and read articles and Taurus SC has the same killing impact as Termidor at a lower price point. I had termite activity, but in about 3-4 weeks there was not any more activity (tunnels, visual sightings, etc.) I will retreat in 8-9 years. Time will tell.

Great stuff
This stuff is better than advertised. I have a house on Cudjoe Key, where the eye of hurricane Irma came ashore. Thirty one inches of water under my house washed all my Taurus SC away. When I got back a month later there were ants in the kitchen. Two days after treating the ground all around my house, no more ants.
Review by Bill / (Posted on 11/14/2017)
We moved into this house in south Michigan in the fall of 2014 not knowing the ant infestation that was here ! There were ants coming out of almost ever crack in the house (cement ants and they bite), I tried all the stuff off the counter and it slowed them at times but never stopped them ! I used Demand in our ducts (slab home) and there would be thousands dead in there but they still kept coming !! I read a few reviews about the Taurus SC and called DIY Pest Control and asked them if it really worked and they assured me it did! We bought it a little over a year ago, it took about 6 months and I have to say we have "NO" ants !!! Respray every 6 months !!! Thank You DIY !!!

We sprayed perimeter of our house a couple of weeks ago and followed the instructions. We still have ants coming into our home. Exterminators have said they are odorous house ants or pavement ants. We live in an very old home and it would be impossible to seal up every crack. Any suggestions? Thinking about respecting tomorrow...

Amazing product
Amazing product. We had an infestation of Argentine ants. They were in and around the house, they covered our driveway. After using the product they were completely gone in two days, not an ant in sight. It also took care of a variety of pests. I've tried many other products and have had professional pest control. Hands down Tarus is the best! Thank you for this amazing product, it exceeded my expectations

No more Argentine Ants
This stuff is the generic for Termidor SC which I have been using for years. Cost less and works just as good as it has the exact same chemical ingredient Fipronil 9.1%. Save the money and make the switch.

Ants are gone!
We had ants in multiple places around the house and detached garage. The usual stuff from Home Depot just wasn't having any effect on them.
I ordered this, it came really fast in the mail, and I sprayed the perimeter of the buildings. All traces of ants were gone within 48 hours.
I have been really happy with the results and the service from diypestcontrol.

Review by TJ / (Posted on 8/9/2017)
Fantastic Stuff!
I've had problems with "pavement" ants for several years here in north Texas. Trails of them could be found on all concrete surfaces in the front and back yards, especially along the expansion joints.

Then they started showing up in the house a few years ago too. I tried spreading granules outside and controlling them with the syrupy ant baits in the house. Those solutions worked Ok, but soon became ineffective. It could be that I didn't alternate between protein and sugar baits, which is a hassle.

Anyway, I found Taurus SC from DIY and mixed and sprayed several gallons around the outside perimeter of my house, as well as around the joints of all concrete walkways and around the pool.

It's been a couple of weeks since I sprayed outside and has even rained twice, and I still have not seen a single ant anywhere, even in the house! I never had to do anything inside the house, either. This stuff is amazing. I wish I had found it sooner. It completely solved the ant problem I've had for four years.

Stop messing around, use the good stuff!
I live in a woods and carpenter ants are a regular event in my house. Usually the perimeter spray from the big box store once a season is enough to keep the ants away, but this year I procrastinated too long and the little devils were running around in my kitchen and a couple bedrooms. Decided to stop messing around and go with the good stuff. Shipping was really fast, which is just what you want when you have an infestation of these destructive critters. Mixing was easy and the concentrate goes a long way. Sprayed perimeter of house, around doorways and windows. Almost immediately started seeing ants wandering around not knowing what they were doing. Day one through three swept up dead ants, day four...GONE! This stuff is great!

Getting rid of Ants
Taurus SC is an outstanding product. It took care of the ants, a problem I had for years and no other product worked before. I had so many ants that they would push the sand out from the bottom of my pavers and the pavers would sink, because underneath the pavers were hollow. I repaired my pavers, and I simply splayed the Taurus SC with the simple instruction all over the pavers. I do it twice a year, in spring and fall. I don’t have a problem anymore. The ants may still be down there deeper, but when I spray it twice a year, I don’t see them at all.

Thank you for your product and the helpful instruction on your website.

Review by Kenny J / (Posted on 7/6/2017)
great product, documentation could be better
I used this for an ant problem. I had an infestation and it was causing problems in my 3 unit apartment building. With one spray in the ant hill and around the foundation of my house, the ants are GONE! I plan to spray every month just to keep them away. Also, the design of the bottle is quite ingenious. I loved it, from the perspective of great design! It enables you to measure and pour out the amount you need without messy spills. I do think the documentation could be clearer. I had to call to ensure I was doing it right. The person on the phone was very helpful.
Review by Anne / (Posted on 7/5/2017)
Very Effective Treatment
If you trench around perimeter, it is very effective. I used to get ants in my house every spring. After using this, I cannot find an ant within 20 feet of my house.
Review by Roberto / (Posted on 7/5/2017)
Holy cow. The yard behind my apartment became OVERRUN with crazy ants and they were trickling in by the hundreds. I have tried Terro, Optigard, natural approaches (baby powder, boric acid, peppermint), caulked up holes (it's a very old apartment building). My neighbor said there was nothing he's ever seen that has worked and my landlord specifies he won't pay for pest control in the lease (should have seen that as a red flag). I was at a loss of what to do. And when I say OVERRUN, I mean that even if I could have gotten them from coming into my apartment, there were swarms everywhere outside. It was miserable, and although the stuff I tried did seem to eventually kill them (dead bodies all day in my apartment, I had to vacuum twice a day) they just kept coming and coming and swarming everywhere.
I got my shipment of Taurus yesterday evening- mixed it up, spraying according to the directions. This morning, it did look like there were less ants outside and only a few were still trickling in from outside. I was hopeful that is was working. But HOLY COW- I just went outside (it's now afternoon) and they are GONE! All of the swarms, all ants- GONE! Get this stuff, it is a miracle product! I wouldn't have believed anything can work this fast! Now to get my neighbors to use it too!

Amazing Results
We were seeing big ants inside and outside our house. I mixed 1 gallon at regular strength (<1 oz. of concentrate) in a tank sprayer and applied around the house. Within 2 days the ants were totally gone. We're still ant-free over a month later.

This stuff really works good!! I've been fighting mostly pavement ants for quite some time now. Nothing seemed to work very good. Then I tried Taurus SC. I waited about a week to see if it worked. I walked all around where I sprayed and did not see any ants. I waited another month and walked around again, and still no ants. This stuff is amazing. I highly recommend this product.

I am happy unless those littler suckers return!!!
I saved myself about $1,000 by treating myself. I trust the product will do it's job. I Drilled and applied as instructed so there should be no Moore termites. I paid $1,300 to have another area treated. I watched and learned. The application tech told me the material cost $800. I could not believe it was that expensive so I checked and found your company at a reasonable price.

Review by Skippy / (Posted on 4/30/2017)
Excellent product truly worth the cost.
This product exceeded my expectations!

I had a considerable carpenter ant infestation involving multiple nests including one high in an oak tree and three leading into my home.

I initially tried various baits which failed miserably and I was ready to call an exterminator.

I was surprised by how little I had to use for 1 gallon of water and I was skeptical figuring I would have to commit to a “series” of sprays over the next few weeks but this was not the case.

I applied the spray as directed on my home as well as around the infested tree.

Within 24 hours ALL of the ants were gone! There are no random ants wandering around, no new trails, nothing. I am crossing my fingers that this single application collapsed the main colony which was some 50' feet high in the oak tree.

I am truly impressed how well this product worked, and I wish it had been my first choice. Truly worth the cost.

One caveat to all your DIYers out there ready to obliterate whatever your particular offending insect happens to be... please take note.

The effectiveness of this product extends to ALL insects and critters so please consider carefully how, where, and when you apply it.

When I say that I have not seen a single ant in the 10 days since I applied this product I mean NOT A SINGLE ANT or any other insect or critter for that matter, NONE period!

And while I am wholly satisfied that I controlled a potentially serious insect infestation with one application of this product it was not without “collateral damage”.

It even killed an 8” long Red Head Centipede and while this critter makes my skin crawl I hated seeing it perish. And please remember that this insect was not directly sprayed with the Taurus, it came into contact with the residual spray.

Read and take very seriously everything written in the instruction booklet, its dry reading but once you see this stuff in action you will understand why all the precautions are necessary.

You absolutely can NOT treat this product as you would a can or Raid, spraying full force at the offending insect. Use exactly as much as is instructed, and think carefully about where you and your family and pets spend time.

This product works incredibly well but it does not discriminate so apply it carefully.

cut ants
This works great for cut ants. I follow the ant trails to the holes then I spray it directly into the active holes (front & back door) and within a few hours all activity is done.
Very powerful, I just spray down the hole. I don't want to kill any good bugs.

It's in the dirt
I dug along the footing at the back of the house, mixed the Taurus SC Insecticide in some used milk jugs, and poured the mixture into the dirt. Along the front of the house, I used a earth probe and poured the mixture into the holes. I did my part, NOW the insecticide must do its part to control any termites that might be around --- and I'm confident it will. Next, I'm going to spray the same mixture and see if it will kill any ants that seem to come out in the spring and summer. Buy the 78 oz. size for the best deal.

Happy and no more stress from Crazy Ants in Orlando. Would recommend in a heart beat
Taurus SC, lived up to its's standards. Spoke with Ken who was extremely helpful considering I was in panic mode with crazy ants coming from everywhere fixtures Int/Ext lines going around the house etc. Had to clean up the perimeter leaves dead wood including some on the property next to us, Gutters & just follow the trail. It's not an instant knock down and can only applies outside. I used Talstar P for inside. Ken also advised me to use Dominion 2L for outside shrubs grass etc,,, All of the above are pet friendly having 2 dogs or should I say our kids. After reading nightmares from other people in the south and Fl trying to get a handle on this pest. At its worse i had a few hundred in each cluster on bathroom tile. Kitchen area. After 2 weeks they were GONE, amazing! The cost savings alone from having professionals deal with this matter too! I was quite pleased that I did myself

As Advertised - Took care of Crazy Ants
Sprayed underneath my raised camp on entire slab area, out about 18" into yard and up along pilings (which the camps is supported) about 2 feet up or to bottom of camp if I saw trails of crazy ants. One week later they were gone and prior to that I had TONS of em. Its been a month and haven't seen them show up again, but will spray hit i again if they show up to keep them in check.

Carpenter Ants Gone
I used Taurus SC as a foundation perimeter spray in combination with Advion gel to deal with hundreds of carpenter ants that were crawling into my house. While I can't tell whether one or both of these did the job, the ants are totally gone within a couple of weeks. I used only a tiny amount of Taurus SC per the directions and used a simple pump sprayer. It took only 45 minutes, including reading the directions. The Wife is much happier and I sleep better at night no longer worrying if ants are eating my house.

We had a very large colony of ants and even saw the queen come out after the first few hours of spraying.
Outstanding product, very pleased!

Works great! We had been over run by ants, I put it in a back pack sprayer and sprayed all around my home thoroughly. I only sprayed once and it did the trick.

Great results over time here in Florida.
Worked well over time; the measure cup section of the container is a bit more difficult to use than I expected and, thus, some waste of the product occurred. This time of year it rains every day, so multiple applications were required. But no more ants now.

Wow! I couldn't believe how effective this is. I have fought ants around and in the house for several years with many other products and never got rid of the little critters. Now, 3 weeks after applying Taurus SC in accordance with the directions, the ants are nowhere to be found. I highly recommend this product.

I have tried MANY products/home remedies to try and kill the ants in our driveway and the patio. They drove me crazy making little mounds everywhere on the patio and nothing worked. This stuff killed them all in one spraying. Amazing!!
Review by Amanda / (Posted on 6/16/2016)
no joke
This stuff is no joke. Worth every penny. Every year, all season long, I get ants at the seam of my driveway and garage slab. I would constantly spray with home defense, but the ants would eventually reappear. I purchased Taurus and applied as the label instructed. One day later, the ant population greatly declined, and two days later, not a one! I'm glad the person on the phone recommended it to me.

all wood boring insects
I have been using Taurus SC for years on everything from ants to bats. And it works to perfection every time. Once a wood bee or carpenter ant comes in contact with it...it's over, within minutes they start doing the circle dance.

I got this product to control ants. I sprayed three weeks ago and have not seen any more,
Review by Thomas / (Posted on 5/23/2016)
I would give this product 10 stars!
Best thing that I have found that took care of our ant problem! I haven't seen an ant in the house in two weeks. The product took two weeks to get rid of them all but problem solved. No more ants in the house.
Thank you so much!
Review by Sandy / (Posted on 5/13/2016)
The best
It's a lot of work, but well worth the savings. I have treated 3 of my houses with Taurus SC. Saved a bundle and got 10 years of termite protection for about $140 per house. I recomend Taurus for all homeowners who don't mind getting a little dirty to save big bucks.
Don't wait till the little devils get in, treat them now. And if you have any questions, call the guys at DIY, they were extremely helpful and courteous. I will do business with these people in the future for sure.
Tks guys

Works great on ants
Best product ever!!! This is my second bottle and I shared with friends and family. No need for an exterminator. Once you use this product, you won't have anymore ants. Plus they ship the product the same day, so you get it within 2 days. I,m so glad I found this company!!!
Review by EV / (Posted on 4/29/2016)
Great product!
I live in southern Louisiana and used this product last year in the spring. Roughly a year later I viewed the first fire ants since my initial application. I had a couple of dozen fire ant mounds on two acres. They were gone after a week or so and now I'm just seeing a couple of ants! Time to reapply! Thanks DIY

The termites are gone. The ants were gone in about three days. I have used it here in Virginia and at my house in the Florida keys. No more ants. Wonderful.

Awesome Product
I have a rental property that is located on a sandy loam plot between two irrigation viaducts. The Porter Slough is about a hundred yards in front and a ditch right behind the house. Gophers are a constant problem and red ants are the worst! I have used all kinds of pesticides and "home remedies" to fight the little buggers but nothing works as quickly or as effectively as the "Termidor" until now! Taurus is the exact same thing and I saved almost 50% on the price. I will recommend this product to anyone with ants taking away the peaceful enjoyment of their property.

waited 1 year to write this review to make sure it worked. my ants were coming inside in the winter. tried many products. nothing worked. sprayed house outside as recommended, trees, anywhere in yard that I saw ants. I had this problem for 3 years. Taurus sc KNOCKed them out. the ants in the house was something I could not live with. I no longer have fire ants in the yard either. I want to thank DIY for recommending this product. sam

I truly want to kick myself for not ordering this product sooner. I had crazy ants everywhere around my home, trees, and occasionally inside the home. The product arrived a few days after ordering. Followed the directions and boom no more ants.
Review by Jimbob / (Posted on 10/11/2015)
This stuff is awesome!
I have been treating outside ants for months with the powder stuff and I have killed a lot, but there were always more. I mixed this and sprayed around the edge of the building and edge on the edge of the concrete and BANG, the ants have dwindled to nearly none or none at all. Thanks!
Review by Vance / (Posted on 10/10/2015)
Great product
I bought this product for an ant problem. I was able to find the ant track and spayed around the house, garage and a little around the yard where I had ants as well.

I didn't have to wait the 2 weeks. I saw the ant trail reduced the day I sprayed and the ants are gone after only 2 days.

The product is odorless and is sprayed only twice a year. No more extended contract to pay and spray every 2 months.

Big cost savings and is much better than the temporary fixes you get at the hardware store.
Review by Paul / (Posted on 10/8/2015)
Very effective on ants
After weeks of feeding sugar water (with some success), I decided to "go nuclear"on them by spraying this product around the outside of my house. I have not seen an ant inside since - and it's been a few months. Very effective. I highly recommend it.
Review by Uncle! No Ants / (Posted on 10/8/2015)

I purchased this to get rid of the ants on my carport floor which has some cracks in the concrete. They were all over it. I sprayed it well one time and the next day they were all gone. Couldn't find even one.

I sprayed this outside perimeter of my home for ant control august 23 and so far have not seen any ants inside my home , also got the one gallon pump sprayer, easy to do took about 30 min and way more cost effective than paying a pest company !!!

Taurus SC Works!
After doing a little research and price comparisons, I purchased the 20 oz. bottle of Taurus SC from DIY Pest Control. Yes, it was a bit expensive, but after following the directions and treating the entire outside perimeter of my home and a 10'x12' tool shed I still have 15oz's left. It's very concentrated so it goes a long way. We were having serious problems with tiny black ants, spider crickets and spiders. Tried the baits,and sprays but nothing lasted very long. Within a week after applying the Taurus SC I haven't seen a bug since. Amazing stuff. And no smell!
Review by Ed / (Posted on 9/17/2015)
This is Awesome Stuff.
I fought those stupid ants way longer than I should have. I tried all the home remedies, the ant baits, the traps, everything. This took me an hour total time, including going to buy a sprayer. After 3 or 4 days, the ants just disappeared. I haven't seen an ant since.
Review by Andy / (Posted on 9/16/2015)

Amazing results on ants after trying several other options
Just one application has pretty good control on ants. I am sad I didn't I come across this until the end of summer. Had to struggle during the peak of summer with ants swarming in the backyard and happily enjoying a meal of TERRO when I put it only to come back for more later.

Review by Happy Customer / (Posted on 8/30/2015)
Great product - quick results.
Great product - quick results. I had carpenter ants EVERYWHERE. After 2 years of paying for pest control that never solved the problem, one max concentration treatment around the perimeter and no more ants. After 30-days, the results are holding and all remaining ants are 'moving' slowly to death.
Review by Joshua R. / (Posted on 8/24/2015)
solved my ant problem
Had problems with black ants in and around home. I poured the whole bottle into a 26 gal spray tank. I then sprayed all around the house. after three days all the ants were gone. This product solved my issue with ants. it has been 90 days since the application and still no sign of ants

As always I expect it to work perfectly like any other product I have purchased from you. Delivery on time, price is right and like the stink bug spray and ant killer I'm sure this will work fine.

Review by Gramma CIndi / (Posted on 7/11/2015)
I'm really happy
Ants everywhere outside. I'm fine with them being outside but they were coming in the house through invisible little holes that were impossible to find. I only sprayed the perimeter of the house and not the yard. The yard belongs to the critters, but they aren't allowed inside. I haven't seen an ant in or on the house in weeks. And all the birds, lizards, bees etc., outside the house are still just fine. This is exactly the solution I wanted to achieve.

How customer service should be done...
I recently purchased a house and did the customary termite inspection as part of my pre-purchase due diligence.

The inspection, consisting of a 5 minute walk around the outside of the house by two teenagers, who assured me that no termites were present.
As to be expected with most paid public services, this turned out to be 100% incorrect, and 100% waste of time.

Having gained several quotes ranging between $1500 - $2000 for treatment, I thankfully stumbled across DIY-Pest Control.

To cut a long story short, when I called the customer service asked me several questions about the house, location, type of soil, my ability to do the work & type of damage and termites I had seen. They then PRESCRIBED the best product and treatment for me, rather than asking no questions and just pushing their most expensive product as most "customer service" industries do...

DIY Pest control has since sent several followup emails to see if I had any questions or concerns, the delivery of my purchase was fast.
I can honestly say that I don't think there is anything else they could have done to make my experience with them any more pleasurable.

Take note America, this is how business and customer support should be done.... outstanding.

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!

Review by Paul / (Posted on 5/6/2015)
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!
Review by Sammie / (Posted on 4/27/2015)
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.....
Review by ZEELARRY / (Posted on 4/24/2015)
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.

Review by Tom / (Posted on 11/9/2014)
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.
Review by Jon / (Posted on 10/22/2014)
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!
Review by Stef / (Posted on 9/15/2014)
product seems to kill 'em
Product received promptly. I wasn't responsible for reading the directions, but my father applied it (using higher concentration I found out later...) using a sprayer. Went well. 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!

I had a tree close to the house which was overwhelmed by ants - almost a horror story - which eventually made it into our house. Sprayed around the outside of the house and the tree. Two days later, no ants.

Review by JayBartman / (Posted on 9/3/2014)
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!!!

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.

OMG!!! Like a Nuclear Bomb! :)
Absolutely killed every single termite and carpenter ant - carcasses everywhere! It was awesome! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

You have to dilute it in water, so this one bottle will last for dozens of nest killings - great deal, and effective!

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. Looks like it has pretty well wiped out the ants in my yard.

I ordered the Taurus as suggested by their sales associate. I did exactly what the guy said - I sprayed it on the outside of my house only. I sprayed it 1 foot up and 1 foot out, and I still have ants. THIS PRODUCT DOESN'T WORK and I wasted my money. Now I'm going to have to pay a professional to come out and spray since this didn't work.

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.

Excellent Service and Product
I will be a repeat customer. Delivery was fast. Customer Service by phone was perfect. Followed You Tube video instruction and label directions. Active termites are gone. I had active tubes being rebuilt over night. After treatment, no more new or rebuilt tubes. Taurus works!

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!)

great product
We applied per directions for the ant problem we were having around our barn. Within 3 days, didn't see any ants. Will definitely purchase again when needed. Prompt service and shipping.

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.

Great Product
A friend shared this with me a couple of years ago when I bought my 1 acre home. Brand new home with nothing but dirt and ants were all over. Used the product and had no sign of ants for 4 yrs. Purchased the small size container and use it to control ants. We have had no problems controlling the creepy crawlies.

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!

best product ever!
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.

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.
Review by Curt in TN / (Posted on 6/12/2014)
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.

Works Great
Sprayed exterior of brick house and no more ants, roaches or spiders! Will have to see how long an application will last.
Review by Carl / (Posted on 5/27/2014)
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.

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.

Big head ants were completely carpeting my pool with no relief until i used this product . I followed instructions outside around my home and yard wiped them out along with the millipeeds.

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.

Taurus is a great product. It is a wonderful treatment for RED ants.

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.

no more crazy ants for me
taurus sc really works when it comes to ants. i had a serious problem with annoying crazy ants all over my front and back porch and around the house. after treating all around the house one saturday evening though, by sunday morning there were no more ants. i'am very satisfied with the results. i really recommend this product
Review by 4hammonds / (Posted on 6/24/2013)
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.

i found this website after speaking with the head groundskeeper at a horse track and ranch. he said he uses this product there and at his own home. i figured since he did it for a living, he knew what he was talking about. i purchased 2 20 oz. bottles for my house

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.

The best bug control I have ever used! Buy it!
Review by Scott / (Posted on 2/4/2013)
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

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.

Review by bobby / (Posted on 2/4/2013)
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.
Review by James / (Posted on 2/4/2013)

I am placing another order right now for some Taurus SC. Man, that stuff knocks the *%#@ out of the ants. Very good product.
I think you guys do a pretty good job and I am happy to be a customer.

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.
