Sam from Savannah, Ga writes

How often would you recommend rotating between pesticides for a barrier treatment?

I've used Talstar with expected results (good!), but I don't want to risk a situation in which roaches (the big Savannah ones, smokybrown, I guess?) form a resistance to the treatment. Should this treatment rotate, and do you have a recommendation for best results specifically regarding the barrier component of a thorough control strategy?


Talstar has not been shown to have resistance issues.  However, it is not a bad idea to switch products every 4 to 6 months.  You just need to switch active ingredients that you use.  A great alternative product to switch between would be Cy-Kick CS which has an active ingredient of Cyfluthrin.
