How Taurus works for Termites:
Termite treating the outer perimeter of a structure is basically a matter of treating all of the soil next to the structure. This is usually fairly easy to do. Simply dig a small trench against the foundation of the home. 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep is the recommended size. Then apply your termiticide into the trench at the rate of 4 gallons of diluted chemical per 10 linear feet. With most homes this easy job becomes a bit more complicated when you have concrete slabs that meet the building. The most common are garages, porches, and patios. Since the soil next to the foundation is covered by the concrete, you must drill through the concrete in order to access and treat the soil. The drill holes should be no farther apart than 12 inches and should be within 6 inches of the foundation. I prefer to use 1/2 inch diameter holes because they are small enough to drill fairly easily, yet large enough to allow the chemical to pass through quickly. The use of a rotary hammer drill is highly recommended. If you don't have a suitable drill you can rent one at most large home improvement stores. Even though the slabs you will drill through are rarely deeper than 6 inches, I can tell you from experience that an 18 inch long bit will keep you from bending over as much and will reduce the strain on your back.
How Taurus SC works for Ants
Taurus SC is an excellent insecticide for ant control. Mix 0.8 oz of Taurus per gallon of water in a pump sprayer . Then spray around the house 1 foot up the side of your house and one foot out from the house setting up a perimeter. Make sure to remove vegetation that may be touching the house so the ants and other pests won't be able to bypass the treatment.
.Other areas of spray would be more entry points such as : doors (don't spray near door handles), windows, pipes, cracks, vents, holes, etc. Make sure to treat the joint where exterior siding (wood, vinyl, aluminum or other similar materials) meets the cement, brick or block foundation. Treat anywhere electrical, cable or telephone wires enter the house.
Apply Taurus SC only twice a year according to label instructions. Spring and Fall times would be ideal application times.
Permiter Pest Treatment with Taurus SC:
For perimeter pest treatments mix a 0.06% spray dilution of TAURUS SC by filling the treatment tank 1/4 to 1/3 full with water, then add 0.8 fluid ounces of TAURUS SC.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE TO CONTROL PERIMETER PESTS USE RESTRICTIONS:
o Only applicators wearing the personal protective equipment required by this product label may be in the area during application.
Apply the chemical though the holes that you drilled with a slab injector or other suitable method. The application rate is 4 gallons of termite chemical (diluted) per 10 linear feet. If your drill holes are 12 inches apart then you should use 4/10 gallon per hole. After treating the holes seal them with Trebor ½ inch plugs. They are easy to put in and if you need to retreat you can drill them out very quickly
For most applications, use the 0.06% (.8 fluid oz) 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%. Use the higher concentrations (0.09% or 0.125%) in areas with severe termite pressure or existing infestations. Apply the higher concentration at a rate of 4 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet per foot of 4 - 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. For example, for treatment of 10 linear feet with a four-foot depth, use 8 (2 x 4) gallons per 10 linear feet. When using the lower volume of application, be careful to maintain a continuous treated zone. If application requires drilling, drill holes less than 12" apart to maintain a continuous treated zone
