For Use In
Taurus is used for termite trenching, pre construction, post construction, and barrier application treatments.,
Pre Construction Taurus SC treatments are made during all steps up to the and including the installation of the final grade. The goal of a termite pre-treat is to create a complete horizontal and vertical chemical barrier of Fipronil at a concentration of .125%.
Slab treatments of Taurus SC should cover the entire area of earth beneath the concrete slab. This includes home, garage, basements, and any extended entrances and walkways. Spray 1 gallon of mixed Taurus solution to cover 10 square feet of area. A low pressure spray works best for even application. NOTE: Around gaps in the slab (plumbing, utility services, etc) spray 10 gallons of Taurus SC Solution to ensure proper protection. NOTE: Around the perimeter of the foundation spray Taurus solution at a rate of 4 gallons for each 10 linear feet.
Post Construction Taurus SC Treatments are made after construction has been completed. Generally post construction termite treatments are performed to eliminate colonies that have infested a home. To treat the home you must trench Taurus SC solution around the house at a rate of 4 finished Taurus SC gallons per 10 linear feet of foundation. Generally a professional will drill holes into the foundation at 12 inch increments and inject 4 gallons per 10 linear feet for sub-slab protection. Bath traps should be treated with Taurus SC at a rate of 4 finished Taurus SC gallons per square foot of area. Shower drains and adjacent soil should be treated for complete protection. Drill through the slab around the drain and sub slab inject 4 gallons of finished Taurus solution per shower drain. A directional dispersion tip may be needed to ensure total termite control. Foaming wall voids may be necessary where termite damage is suspected or present.
To foam, mix 1 gallon of Taurus SC solution and appropriate amount of foaming agent to create 25 gallons of foam in foaming machine. Apply at a rate of 3 gallons of foam per wall void.
To use Taurus to control ants you can apply according to labelled directions.
Please refer to the Taurus label and MSDS for more application instructions.
Applied at 0.8 fluid ounces per gallon (0.06% dilution) for most applications, 20 oz. makes 25 gallons, and 78 oz. makes 100 gallons of dilution.
Time to Kill
TAURUS SC is not a knockdown agent and will not kill on contact.
Taurus SC will eliminate termite colonies as quickly as 3 months. When used for ant control, Taurus SC can eliminate and extermintate workers and a colony in only a few weeks after application. Please read and follow all label instructions.
Country of Manufacture
The Taurus SC mix rate is 0.8 oz per gallon of water.
