Some insects require a more potent insecticide for total control. Taurus SC contains a highly effective ingredient that works slowly by spreading through the colony and eliminating every member. It's a termiticide and insecticide, so it can be used to target termite infestations and other insects that have infested a home or business. It's also a nonrepellent, so insects won't avoid it in the target area.
How Taurus SC Works
Taurus SC contains the active ingredient fipronil, a nonrepellent chemical that inhibits GABA function. It acts on the insect's central nervous system, causing eventual paralysis and death. It's unlike a synthetic pyrethroid that provides immediate knockdown. Instead, fipronil works slowly enough to let the insects contact and ingest the ingredient while spreading it to other members of the colony. It controls ant colonies within two weeks and termite colonies within 90 days.
Where to Use Taurus SC
Taurus is labeled for outdoor use only, with the exception of wall void treatments for termites indoors. It's sprayed into wall voids to target the insects where they live and breed. It's not intended for use as a spot or perimeter treatment as it could affect nontarget animals and beneficial insects. It may, however, be used as a foundation perimeter treatment of certain buildings. Refer to the label for exact use rates and application areas when applying Taurus SC for perimeter use.
Taurus SC is an effective termiticide and can easily eliminate and control infestations in less than three months when applied as directed. It's also an insecticide and controls dozens of crawling and flying pests in the target areas. Use it to control wood-destroying insects like carpenter ants and borers. The active ingredient is effective against ants of all types, from big-headed ants to pharaoh ants, as well as certain types of arachnids like brown recluse spiders and dog ticks. Some other target pests include wasps, crickets, silverfish and Asian lady beetles.
