To use Taurus SC, you will need a hand-held pump sprayer, skid sprayer, or backpack sprayer. To establish a complete exterior perimeter treatment, you may also need sub-slab injection equipment to drill and inject the product under concrete. If using Taurus SC as a trenching solution you will need a shovel or tool to remove dirt, a wheelbarrow or a bucket.
How to Use
- Step 1: Determine how much Taurus SC you will need depending on the treatment area and how you will be applying the product. Measure the square footage (length x width) of the treated area or the linear footage by measuring the perimeter of the structure you wish to conduct a trench treatment for. For termite trench treatments, the label suggests a 0.06% dilution rate by mixing 0.80 fl. oz. of Taurus SC per 1 gallon of water. To treat 10 linear feet at a 1-foot depth, you will need to use 4 finished gallons of diluted Taurus SC (0.80 fl. oz. x 4 = 0.32 fl. oz. mixed in 4 gallons of water). For perimeter pest treatments, you need to mix 0.80 fl. oz. in 1 gallon of water to cover 1,000 sq. ft.
- Step 2: Fill the spray tank 1/4 to 1/3 of the way with water then add the correct amount of Taurus SC based on your measurement calculations to the tank for the desired mixture. Add the remaining water agitate the spray tank until the product is well mixed.
- Step 3: Make application treatments either via trenching or spray treatment. Apply the Taurus SC in the trench using a poly sprayer or a bucket and then backfill. When spraying general surfaces around the perimeter, use a low-pressure coarse spray setting and spray the exterior perimeter to an area one foot up and one foot out to where the ground meets the foundation.
Where to Use
Taurus SC is labeled for outdoor use only, with indoor use only permitted when there is an active ant or termite infestations found in wall voids. Taurus SC can be used around building perimeters, injected under slabs, applied under crawl spaces, or on pre-construction sites. For sub-slab treatment, Taurus SC can be applied to interior perimeters, hollow block foundations or voids. When mixed as a foaming agent, Taurus SC can be applied in wall voids, filled stoops or porches, bases of fireplaces, into wall studs, block voids, and other areas that are difficult to access.
When to Use:
Taurus SC should be used as a preventative treatment to keep termite infestations away or to eliminate active termite infestations. It can be used for pre-construction treatment or post-construction treatment of a structure. Applications should not be made when raining or when the soil is saturated or frozen.
Taurus SC is safe to use around children and pets when it is applied according to the product label. Always let treated areas dry completely before allowing children and pets to enter the area. Always wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when mixing or making applications.
Taurus SC is a powerful termiticide and the label should be read before making any applications. This product may not be available to individuals in all states before purchasing make sure the state in which it is being used does not require a license to apply termiticide and/or other pest control products.
