I'm not sure of the species of ant in my lawn. I live in SW Wyoming and we do have rather sandy soil. Either way is your product successful on an array of ant species or specific to fire ants? I do have a wy applicators license.
Jay on Jul 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Very good at eliminating many insect species, not just ants (read the labeling). But to be specific to your question, yes it will kill most all ant species... it is not effective on only fire ants.
Doesn't specify to water in after treatment. I know Topchoice has to be watered in, so curious if this needs to be watered in as well.
Chad on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes this will need to be watered in after application.
HOW TO USE: Apply CSI FIP PRO with broadcast equipment. Before each use, calibrate and
adjust the equipment to ensure accurate application rates. Ensure thorough and even coverage of the
granules. Water in immediately after application.
HOW MUCH TO APPLY: Apply 87 lbs. of CSI FIP PRO per acre (2 pounds of CSI FIP PRO per
1,000 sq. ft.)

Will it Control Chiggers?
A shopper on May 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can applying a type of Permethrin application to the foliage and brush.

Is this product safe?
Wayne P on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: "safe" is a relative term. You need to define what safe means to you. It is not safe to aquatic life. It is not safe for indoor use. It is not safe if used in any other way than the label allows. It is not safe if your dog ingests half the bag. Most all pesticides are safe when used correctly, and deadly when not. Please be more specific in your query.
What is the correct spreader setting on a Anderson's Accupro2000 spreader? Or is there a place that list specific spreader settings. Pretty tough to calibrate when the bag cost $100+
Justin C on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Please check with the manufacturer of the spreader.
How long after treatment with Top Choice, that has been watered in, can I allow my dogs to go into the area?
Ned G on Mar 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will want the area to be completely dry before they area allowed back in the area.
I want to use Taurus G for fleas .How long is the residual in this product ?
Chad L on Mar 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: about 3 months, depending on weather conditions
Could you please add to bottom of description that only licensed contractors can purchase granules. Unknowing that I purchased and my account was charged before verification.
Unless you look through questions you are not aware. thank you for crediting me
Don on May 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is a restricted use product and does require a license for application. There are other great ant control options that do not require a license. Depending on the type of ants we have Bifen Granules, and Fire Ant Baits.

Can you buy this product in a liquid form and if so is it just as good for mole crickets
Davey on May 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can purchase Taurus SC which is a liquid fipronil product, it is not labeled for mole cricket control.

Take a look at https://www.solutionsstores.com/invict-x-press-granules to help you control mole crickets
What about getting rid of grubs to control moles?
FrankT on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The most effective method is get rid of the moles themselves, using Talpirid mole worms.
But grubs can destroy the lawn and kill your grass just as easy, so they should also be dealt with.
does it control army worms
Fred on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, Taurus G granules will not control army worms and are labeled for use on fire ants. Would recommend Reclaim to spray for adult army worms.

Will this control chinch bugs also.
Ray on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No sorry this is not labeled for control of Chinch bugs,

I would recommend Merit Granules

Do you sell both Top Choice granules (0.0143 % Fipronol)and Taurus G Granules (0.0143 % Fipronol). Is there a difference in the cost per pound on one product over the other.
russ on Apr 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Russ. We sell both TopChoice and Taurus G. The Taurus G is quite a bit cheaper than the TopChoice since it is a post patent product. The majority of our professional customers have switched over since Taurus comes with the same 1 year guarantee. It is a restricted use pesticide and requires a license be provided to purchase. For those without a license we recommend Taurus SC which is the liquid formulation of Fipronil.

Response from Solutions Stores
Yes, unfortunately, this is an EPA restricted product and we would need a license to ship out the product. We do have other granular for the control of insects like the Bifen L/P and Merit.

Our company used this at one of the plants for Rasberry crazy ants and it provided the best long term control. Cheaper than Top choice.
