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.

Taurus SC Insecticide - Termiticide

Taurus SC Insecticide and Termiticide with 9.1 % Fipronil by Control Solutions 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 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.

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.

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).

More Instructions

Pre Construction Termite Treatments With Taurus SC

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

 

Sub-slab injection, Vertical drilling injection- See Label

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
