Taurus SC Insecticide
Starting at $43.50
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.
|Pro Tips||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).
