Can I use Talstar P in a hose end applicator to treat gnats or midges?

We have a serious problem with gnats or midges.


Talstar P (Talstar One) can be dispersed in a hose end applicator, hand pump or backpack sprayer for gnats/midges in the lawn. It is also great for treating spiders, centipedes, fire ants and many other insects. We recommend applying 1 oz per gallon of water  per 1,000 sq ft as a broadcast and the same rate per mound for drenching for fire ants. NyGuard IGR can be added to the Talstar P and water mix for impeding the reproductive cycle for listed pests. Please take a few minutes to review our treatment article/videos for other tips on a successful eradication program. Please let us know if you need anything else.
