Taurus SC Is A Non-Repellant Termiticide/Insecticide: Undetectable To Termites And Other Pests
Mixing Instructions: SHAKE WELL.
0.8 Fl. Oz. Of Taurus SC per 1 Gallon Of Water.
To mix Taurus SC termiticide / insecticide:
1. Fill the tank 1/4 to 1/3 full with water. The filling hose must be equipped with an anti-backflow
device or water flow must include an air gap to protect against back siphoning.
2. Start the pump to begin by-pass agitation and place the end of the treating tool in the tank to
allow circulation through the hose.
3. Add the specified amount of Taurus SC required to prepare the desired dilution.
4. Add the remaining water.
5. Continue to run the pump allowing recirculation through the hose back into the tank until the
Taurus SC is completely dispersed.
NOTE: For tanks pre-filled with water, follow steps 2, 3, and 5 above.
NOTE: Recirculation/agitation may not be required for inline injection or other application
• To mix a 0.06% dilution, add 0.8 fluid ounces of Taurus SC per gallon of finished dilution
• To mix a 0.09% dilution, add 1.2 fluid ounces of Taurus SC per gallon of finished dilution.
• To mix a 0.125% dilution, add 1.6 fluid ounces of Taurus SC per gallon of finished dilution.

Storage: Store unused product in the original container only, out of reach of children and animals.
This product is to be used outdoors only (with few exceptions), and there are regulations that vary state to state. Please read the product label carefully before using Taurus SC.
Termites, Ants (Acrobat, Argentine, Big-Headed, Carpenter, Crazy, Odorous, Pavement, Pharaoh, and Thief), Asian lady beetles, Darkling beetles, Cockroaches (Australian, Oriental, Smoky Brown), Black widow spiders, Brown recluse spiders, Cellar and Hobo spiders, Box-elder bugs, Pill bugs, Brown and dog ticks, Centipedes, Cluster Flies, European Earwigs, House Crickets, Millipedes, Paper Wasps, Silverfish, Yellow Jackets
For most applications, use the 0.06% dilution and apply at a rate of 4 gallons of dilution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth. For example, for treatment of 10 linear feet with a four-foot depth, use 4 x 4 (16) gallons per 10 linear feet. Do not apply at a concentration less than 0.06%. Where severe termite infestations occur, where problem soils occur or where difficult or problem construction types are encountered, it may be advisable to use either 0.09% or 0.125% concentration. Apply the higher concentration at a rate of 4 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet per foot of depth. For example, for treatment of 10 linear feet with a four-foot depth, use 16 (4 x 4) gallons per 10 linear feet. In dense soil that will not accept a volume of 4 gallons per linear foot per foot of depth, use the 0.125% dilution, and apply at a rate of 2 gallons per 10 linear feet per foot of depth
Outdoor pet areas are ok, NEVER apply to pets. Please See Label.
A dilution rate of 8oz. per gallon will yield approximately 25 gallons per 20 oz. bottle.
