Target Pests

Taurus is labelled for termites fleas roaches ants and other listed insects. The primary use is for termite treatments around residential and commercial structures. Leaf Cutter Ants

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.

How long does it last after mixing?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I personally don't think you should mix it until application, However after application it is supposed to be effective for up to 6 years. Nevertheless, I would expect it to last a few days at least, If you have some left over due to over prepare and wish to store it I would contact the manufacturer.
can you spray around and in voids of large oak trees trying to save tree from carpenter ants
big daddy on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can apply the Taurus around the tree, and trails, to control the Carpenter Ants,

We also have foam type of aerosol called Fipro, that would also work great to control the carpenter ants, and can be foamed in the the voids, and cracks around the tree.

Wolf on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Taurus SC is not labeled for Flea control, better to use Permethrin SFR for flea control outside, add a bag of granules for better control.

Inside I would recommend for flea control using Novacide.

Better than the rest!
Why oh why did I waste so much time and money with the store brand insecticides from Wal-Mart and those garden center aisle sprays? This one beats them all! I had a serious ant problem and this spray wiped out the whole colony within a day. Top of the line product and top of the line service with free shipping that came surprisingly quick. This is my go-to pest control store now that's for sure!

Taurus SC
I ordered Taurus,& it arrived two days later! Price was good, on-line instructions were very helpful. I did not have termites, but they are in the woods around me.
And, I did have an infestation many years ago. So I cannot comment on the effectiveness of the product yet. Taurus is easy to use, easy to mix, and low odor. I will purchase again from Self-Chem.

I have been battling carpenter ants for years. Amdro, Terro and the other baits had minimal effect, even after clearing out all the dead wood within 100 feet of my shed. I tried a Spectracide spray with Lambda in it, and it cleared some of them out, but a week later they were back. Then I ordered this on a tip from a professional. Wow! Overnight I could see the results, and now 10 days later, I still have not seen a carpenter ant in or near the shed, after being used to seeing scores/hundreds each day before. Hopefully, this finally kills off the colonies, as they were driving me crazy. Thanks, Solutions, for your fast shipping and great service.
