Each 0.4 ounce bottle of Taurus SC will create one gallon of finished solution once mixed with water.

Be sure to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) when mixing and applying Taurus SC. PPE includes long-sleeves, pants, socks, closed-toe shoes, and waterproof, chemical resistant gloves.

To create your mixture:

  • Fill clean one gallon sprayer ¼ to 1/3 full of water
