Can I pour Taurus SC Termiticide down my drain?

We have had a few roaches come up through the drain.


Taurus SC Termiticide should NOT be applied indoors or in drains.  Roaches can live in a septic tank, and can come up through the plumbing lines and make their way through the drains. However, you would not be able to use an insecticide in the actual drains. There is a product called Gentrol Aerosol IGR that is an insect growth regulator that stops the reproductive cycle in roaches that can be used in drains. Keep in mind, too, that roaches often just fall into or crawl in sinks because of the water there and do not actually come up through the drains. We recommend that you treat with our Roach Control Kit Rotation A. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article and videos on How to Get Rid of Roaches for more helpful information.
