Can Talstar get tracked into the home?

This product leaves a dry residual (which obviously then sticks to & kills bugs) and is also recommended for spraying around doorframes. Thus the dry residue will get stepped on when people come & go through the door, and so it seems at least some product will definitely get tracked into the house. This seems to be a possible health concern, as it will then get further tracked onto rugs/furniture/etc, where it is NOT supposed to be applied. Is this reasoning correct?

Answer:

No. Talstar does not get stuck to bugs as you described. Talstar will bind to the surface on which it has been sprayed and insects must be on treated areas for a certain length of time to receive a lethal dose. That is why the Talstar P label recommends that you spray the product directly into areas where insects harbor and travel and that broad areas are treated around the home.
