Its unique non-repellent formula ensures full control of active termite infestations. This product is 100% guaranteed for up to 9 years from the date of application.

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.

Taurus SC Termiticide

The Difference Between Termidor SC and Taurus SC

Termite infestations are one of the biggest problems a homeowner can go through and can absolutely devastate a home with their damage. Pest control manufacturers scrambled to try to find an answer to control these destructive wood-eating pests and years ago they found their answer with Termidor SC. Subsequently, a generic version was also made called Taurus SC which contains an identical formula. So what’s the difference between the two? We’ll get into it here.


Background on Termidor SC In the year 2000, Termidor SC was introduced and essentially revolutionized the pest control industry with its effective formula and became a go-to product for pest management professionals to deal with termite issues in their client’s homes.


The main feature which made Termidor so effective, which the same is the case for Taurus SC, is the fact that it is a non-repellent. Termites are not able to detect the formula so wherever it was applied, termites would freely forage through the treated areas, completely oblivious to the fact that they were ingesting, picking up and transferring a lethal termite killer.


This “transfer effect” became the trademark of Termidor and it’s generic equivalent Taurus SC and would successfully wipe out entire colonies of termites. For a good chunk of time, Termidor became the primary termiticide for pest control professionals, that is, until Taurus SC came along and became a game changer.


Taurus SC: The Affordable Alternative to Termidor SC


Taurus SC, manufactured by Control Solutions Inc, was made as a generic brand of Termidor SC’s winning formula.  This was helpful to pest control companies who were looking to save money. Taurus SC is primarily used for Termites but has also been a popular product to treat for ants.


Taurus SC has also been a great product to use for DIYers who want to do their own termite treatments around the home since Termidor requires a BASF license to be able to purchase it. This makes it so most average homeowners can’t buy the product to do their own termite applications.


Termidor SC vs. Taurus SC


When it comes to comparing Termidor SC and Taurus SC, there is not much of a difference between the two products. They both contain Fipronil has their main active ingredient (which is also in another popular product of ours and excellent for termite control, FiPro Foaming Aerosol) and post similar percentages. Both products have been proven to eliminate infestations of termites, ants and various other pests and have successfully been used as a barrier treatment for the perimeter of homes and buildings.


While Taurus SC and Termidor SC are nearly identical and there’s no glaring advantage that one has over the other, Solutions Pest & Lawn recommends Taurus SC over Termidor for the sake of convenience for the pest control DIYer. There’s more variety in sizes, there’s less restrictions when it comes to purchasing it, you don’t need a BASF license so you can't go wrong with Taurus SC for termite control.

will it work on fleas
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.

I do not have termites, but they are in the woods close by. The exterminator wants me to pay for them to inspect our home and pay big bucks for an annual guarantee. I am interested in applying for prevention. What is the application method for most effective control?
FLman on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The trench around the foundation of the home would be the most effective treatment method. If the home is on a full slab we would dig a trench around the home. Calculate for every 10 linear feet that are dug we would need to use 4 mixed gallons of the Taurus and mix with the soil. This method would provide the most effective barrier around the home and last the longest.
Is it safe to use around pets?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is recommended that you keep pets out of the area while applying Taurus SC OUTSIDE (not for inside use). Once the product has dried completely, it is safe for pets to return to the area. Don't leave puddles that they might drink from.

How long does it last after mixing?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2017

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.
My foundation sits on a slab/footing that extends about six or seven inches beyond the foundation. I assume I have to trench six inches down beside the slab/footing not just down to the slab/footing?
Bruce M on Feb 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The application would still be the same and would not require any additional digging the termites would still cross the barrier to get to the wood structure of the home.

Taurus SC
For some reason, here in central Florida, we have been invaded badly by crazy ants. We have never had them before now, and every product we tried had little, or no effect on them. Taurus SC is the only product we found that has had an impact on them. We live in a very moist area, with lots of leaf litter etc. They love this environment! This product is the only thing that has slowed them down! You must be diligent with spraying at least every 7-10 days to begin with. Then every two-three weeks depending on the infestation. We still have some, but nothing as bad as we did. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone fighting these demons! M. Kinzy

No More Ants
I used the Taurus SC to get rid of black ants. I applied the Taurus and the next day I had no more ants in the house. I would say the Taurus SC is a 5 star product. I would recommend this product.

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!
