Is Talstar XTRA Granular Insecticide safe for chickens?

I need to get rid of millipedes both inside and outside. I have chickens that can get in my flower beds that lay eggs for us. Is this product safe and the best one for millipedes (crunchy worms)?

Answer:

We would not recommend using Talstar XTRA Granular Insecticide in areas where chickens will be feeding. You should keep people and animals out of the treatment area until after the granules have been watered in and the application is completely dry. Please see the product label for complete application instructions. Please note that Talstar EZ Granules are no longer available, as they have been replaced by Talstar XTRA Granules.

For millipede control, you should use an insecticide barrier around the structure, but in order to eradicate them you must locate and eliminate their breeding source, which would be moist, dark areas, such as mulch beds or soil under groundcovers that has not been aired or turned. Please see our Millipede Control Page for more information.
