Taurus SC Termiticide

How Taurus SC Works

Taurus SC Termiticide contains the same active ingredient as the popular Termidor SC, the non-repellent Fipronil. Fipronil belongs to the phenylpyrazole family of insecticides, acting primarily as a GABA inhibitor, attacking the central nervous system of target pests. Fipronil is extremely effective, yet it works slowly enough on target insect pests to take advantage of the natural food-sharing habits of social insects, particularly termites and ants. This means that the fipronil in Taurus SC spreads throughout the entire colony, killing not just those insects that come in contact with the direct spray or residual, but all the others they contact, resulting in colony elimination.

Target Pests

Subterranean termites, ants, cockroaches, occasional perimeter invaders

PESTS CONTROLLED: Ants (acrobat, Argentine, big-headed, carpenter, crazy, odorous, pavement, pharaoh, thief), Asian lady beetles, darkling beetles, Australian cockroaches, Oriental cockroaches, smoky brown cockroaches, Black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders, cellar spiders, hobo spiders, Box-elder bugs, Pill bugs, Brown and dog ticks, Centipedes, Cluster flies, European earwigs, House crickets, Millipedes, Paper wasps (NOT a knockdown agent), Silverfish, Yellow jackets, Subterranean termites (including Reticulitermes, Zootermopsis, Heterotermes, Coptotermes)

Target Uses

Taurus SC is a generic version of Termidor SC, the termiticide most widely used by professional pest control companies. Taurus SC is designed for the prevention and treatment of termite infestations, and it can be applied either pre-construction or post-construction. Taurus SC is also labeled for the outdoor perimeter control of many common invaders, most effectively for ants. Because of its efficacy and longevity, termite treatments with Taurus SC may last up to 10 years, and outdoor perimeter treatments only need to be applied twice per year.  Taurus SC may also be used in structural wall voids to treat active subterranean termite and ant infestations. Taurus SC is not for general indoor use.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Fipronil 9.1%

Taurus SC Application Instructions

Always read the product label completely before use.

Outside Barrier Treatment:

The main use for Taurus SC is for protection against subterranean termite infestations.  To accomplish this, an outside barrier treatment is made in the ground around the foundation of the home that will protect against termites for up to 10 years or more. 

First, you will need to dig a 6 inches deep x 6 inches wide trench around the outside foundation wall of the home. Next, mix 0.8 fl. oz. of Taurus SC per gallon of water and apply at a rate of 4 mixed gallons per every 10 lineal feet of trench.  It is best to use a 5 gallon bucket and mark off the 4 gallon line, then mix 4 gallons of Taurus SC at a time and pour it in the trench.  Allow the solution to soak into the soil and then replace the back-fill, making sure that the back-fill is soaked with Taurus SC as well. When you are done, you should have one contiguous in-ground barrier of Taurus SC all the way around the home.

Treating across slabs of concrete touching the house (such as a back patio or front porch) can be accomplished by using a hammer drill with a 1/2-inch drill bit.  Holes are drilled through the concrete approximately 3-4 inches out from the house and every 12 inches across the concrete slab.  Please see the product label for more information.

For more information please see the article: How to do a Termite Treatment

Each 20 oz. bottle of concentrate yields 25 gallons of finished solution. Each 78 oz. bottle of concentrate yields 97 gallons of finished solution.

Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Ratios for Taurus SC

*0.8 fl. oz. (24 mL)/ gal. of water – 0.06% a.i. – most applications, ground termite treatments, ant or other perimeter pest control

*1.2 fl. oz. (35 mL)/ gal. of water – 0.09% a.i. – may be used for active infestations or severe termite pressure

*1.6 oz. (47 mL)/ gal. of water – 0.125% a.i. – areas of dense soil that will not accept a rate of 4 gal. per 10 linear feet; only use 2 gal. per 10 linear feet per foot of depth
 

*Apply at a rate of 4 gallons of finished solution per 10 linear feet for perimeter termite applications.

*Apply at a rate of 1-1.5 gallon(s) of finished solution per 10 square feet of horizontal ground that will be under concrete slabs (pre-construction)

*For perimeter pest treatments (ants, etc.), apply 2 quarts of 0.06% spray per 160 lineal feet.
 

Taurus SC is for use in the following areas:

Outside surfaces and along foundation of Residential, institutional, commercial and industrial buildings and utility enclosures; wall voids of listed structures; NOT for indoor use; for pre-construction and post-construction treatment for termites, including concrete structures such as patios, porches, sidewalks and foundation slabs; concrete slab (including monolithic, floating and supported concrete slabs) on ground or in basements; hollow block foundations or voids in masonry; structures with French drains and sump pumps; basement structures; crawl spaces; around bath traps and shower drains; posts, poles, and wood landscape ornamentation

Indoors-

Taurus SC is not for Indoor use. The only permitted use indoors is for active ant or termite infestations in wall voids only.

Treating Live Termite Infestations above ground:
To control Aerial termite colonies or Drywood Termites, mix 0.8 fl. oz. of Taurus SC per gallon of water and apply to infested wooden members or voids.  To treat inaccessible areas (for example, if the termite infestation is behind dry wall), drill and inject Taurus SC into the damaged wood of void spaces with a crack and crevice injector.  Foam applications can also be made into void spaces.

Outdoors-

Termite Control – See general directions above. See our article How to Do a Termite Treatment for more details.
 

How to Use Taurus SC for Ant Control:

For outdoor control of Ants and other perimeter pests, mix 0.8 fl. oz. of Taurus SC per gallon of water and apply using a hand-pump sprayer around the outside of the home, spraying 1 foot up the side of the house and 1 foot out from the house, all the way around the home.  Also spray around any exterior openings where pests may enter 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.  This application should be made only twice per year, in the Spring and Fall.  Taurus SC works well enough that only 2 applications per year are needed for effective control.

Also be careful to prune away vegetation including shrubs and tree branches that may be touching the side of the house. This will keep pests from using shrubs and tree branches to bypass the protective barrier you sprayed.
 

Taurus SC Termiticide Features

*The same amount of Fipronil as Termidor SC for less

*Easier, faster, and more effective than termite bait stations

*Foam applications may be made in voids for above ground termite infestations.

*Water-based suspension

*Broad labeling for control of perimeter pests

*Convenient tip-and-pour bottle eliminates the need for other measuring equipment.

Extra Tips

*Do not make applications when precipitation is occurring.

*Do not treat soil that is water-saturated or frozen.

*Do not apply Taurus SC in any way that may contaminate a water source or within 5 feet of a well or cistern. Treatment within 5-10 feet of wells or cisterns must be done by backfill method only (removing the dirt to be treated and replacing it after it has been treated elsewhere or in a container such as a wheelbarrow).

*Do not treat edible vegetation or treat within one food out from the drip line of edible plants.

*Do not exceed 2 applications per year for perimeter pests.

*Do not apply to pet quarters or to playground equipment.

    5 of 5 Stars  Taurus SC
    By Wally on June 12, 2012

    This is a 9.1% suspension of the same active ingredient in Frontline used for treatment against fleas and ticks on domestic animals. It is a non-repelling insecticide. Following the directions for termite treatment I trenched at the perimeter of my home, sprayed and put the dirt back in. I also treated my beech trees by selective injection along the drip lines and allow the root system to translocate the product up the trunks and branches of the trees. This way I avoided unnecessary and indiscriminate killing of beneficial insects such as honey bees. The product works great. It has been two years since I treated my property. So far no signs of harm to good insects because my flowering trees and plants are pollenating just fine. I have no carpenter ants in my yard. Two years carpenter ants were very active. I have recommended this product to my homeowner's association and we are actively trying to save our neighborhood beech trees from the impending woolly beech aphid invasion. One word of caution, follow the directions and apply the product just before insects are actively foraging.

    5 of 5 Stars  Excellent product
    By Tim on November 7, 2011

    This product is very handy to use with the squeezable pre-measured dispenser with separate cap. It allows the user to measure small amounts to apply in tight spaces when a watering can is used and only one or two gallons are needed at a time. Complete instructions are attached to the bottle so you always have them handy for reference. The same stuff the professionals use at a fraction of the cost!

    5 of 5 Stars  Amazing
    By Gomer on September 21, 2014

    I have been battling ants in the yard of my new house for 2 years . Tried all the powders and granules and dusts and liquid insect killers labeled for ants, with no luck. I mean, I had hundreds of 3-4 inch ant hills in an area of about 2000 square feet. Mowing the grass on my rider was bone jarring. Sprayed Taurus mixed to label directions on Sunday and by Thursday, all ants were gone! I still see an occasional very small new ant hill, but never see any ants. I speculate a new queen is trying to move in and is being killed by the Taurus. Amazing.

May 25, 2014 Kaleb from Edmond, Ok asked:

QDoes Taurus SC bond to soil like Termidor does? and does a foaming agent need to be used for application?
Do I need to add a foaming agent to spot treat inside wall voids or is a standard garden/yard, pump up sprayer application sufficient to spray inside the walls?

A Yes the Taurus does bond to the soil the same as the Termidor to acheive the same protection of your home. You do not have to have a foamer and foaming agent to mix with the Taurus and can use it by itself in a standard pump sprayer for wall void spot treatments. While a foam will give you further coverage behind the wall, it is not necessary. If you haven't purchased the products yet, you could get a can of Termidor foam or Premise Foam to use where you plan to spot treat so you dont have to purchase a foaming applicator and foam agent.

April 18, 2014 Jeff from Baton Rouge, La asked:

QHow to i protect my home where i have wood porches against house preventing trenching?
I've got 700 square feet of pressure treated wood porches running the full width of my house on the front and rear. These block my access to trench and treat the soil on roughly 1/2 of the perimiter of my house. They're very low (2-6" off of the ground). Unfortunately the boards run perpendicular to the house so removing them to gain access to the soil for treatment would mean almost complete disassembly and rebuild of the porches. Could I treat these in the same manner as a concrete porch? Drill down through the porch every 1' near the slab with a long bit and then feed a pump sprayer wand down the hole to inject the solution?

A While trenching is always the best option for full protection, something is always going to be better than nothing. If you can drill through and treat the area like you would a concrete slab, this would be great to do. You will want to pour heavier amounts of the product into the holes and even down the side of the foundation between it and the first plank to try and soak the soil below for better coverage. If you do this you should be able to adequately protect the home. If the home is on a crawl space i would suggest going under the home and trenching on the inner wall of the crawl space as well.

March 17, 2014 Dale from Sun City West, Arizona asked:

QHow could I inject your Taurus SC termiticide above the baseboard?
I have trenched outside, but found termites in one area yet. What is your suggestion? Thanks.

A Performing the trench treatment with Taurus on the outside of the house will kill the termites that are already in your home along with the colony that is in the ground. Termites that are above the ground in the house when you perform an in ground Taurus treatment will die when they go back down to the ground.  Termites in your walls don't stay there.  Their job is to eat the wood, the colony's food, and then they take it back underground to feed the rest of the colony below the ground where the queen is.  The termites go up and down, up and down, up and down, every day.  So when you perform a liquid termite treatment, the termites that are below the surface that have not made it up into the house yet will take the Taurus on their bodies up into the house and spread it around to all the termites, and vice versa, any termites up in the walls heading down to take what they have eaten down to the queen and other colony members will have to go through the Taurus barrier you installed and they will become infected at that point as well. It is not necessary to perform a spot treatment inside but you can if you so choose. When injecting Taurus into the walls you want to drill about 6 inches from the floor surface and between every wooden stud down the entire length of the wall. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

A For a termite treatment, you will want to trench around and treat the soil surrounding any part of your home that touches the ground. This mens that you would treat the crawlspace area the same as you would around the exterior of your home. Dig a 6x6 inch deep trench around any post or cinder blocks in the crawlspace and pour the Taurus SC mixture into that soil.
