Talstar PL Granules would be a great product for treating chinch bugs, sod webworms and adult mole crickets in your lawn. Please see the product label for complete application instructions.
Talstar PL Granlues will not have any effect on the rooting or health of your sod and may be applied either prior to or following the laying of sod. We would recommend that you read over the product label for complete use instructions for your target pest.
Talstar PL Granules can be used for scorpions following the instructions on the product label: To ensure optimum control, treat the building perimeter at dusk to prevent outdoor scorpions from entering the building. Scorpions reside hidden in cracks and voids during the day and are active at night at temperatures above 77ºF/25ºC. Resting areas can be identified at night using a blacklight (UV bulb) as scorpions will fluoresce. These areas should also be treated. Prior to treatment, to increase treatment efficacy, remove trash, debris, or firewood that scorpions may use as resting sites
We also have a great guide here for Scorpion Control with non chemical recommendations.
There are no toxic products labeled for frogs or toads (or reptiles for that matter), and given the highly beneficial nature of these amphibians there is not likely to be anything coming along.The reasons they are on your property are because they can find food and proper habitat, and these are probably your only means for making them go away. Take away their food and they will forage somewhere else. Take away the conditions they need for hiding all day and they will seek refuge someplace else.
Habitat modification may be the more effective way to limit frogs on your property. Frogs are mainly nocturnal, and they seek food at night when it is cooler and damper. During the day they look for cool, damp, dark places to hide. They will hide under dense shrubbery or ground covers, under logs or lumber on the soil, or under large landscape rocks and timbers to avoid the hot, dry sun. Trim shrubbery, remove thick ground-cover, stack lumber or firewood off of the soil a few inches and remove any other objects or debris that come in contact with the soil and can provide harborage. Limit watering to help eliminate moisture from your yard. You can also reduce the amount of insects (the frogs food source) in your yard by treating the grass with a residual insecticide such as Talstar PL.
Pets and people need to stay out of the area being treated while the Talstar PL granules are being applied and watered in, but they are safe to return as soon as the treated area has completely dried.
They are both professional strength products. The Talstar PL Granules shouold only be applied as directed every 2-4 onths outside only. Talstar P can be applied to interior crevices quarterly, the lawn, foliar applications outdoors etc monthly.
Talstar Granules such as Tastar PL Granules are labeled for use in interior plantscapes, but not small potted plants. You can use Talstar P liquid concentrate on ornamental potted plants and/or on the surfaces where these plants rest, however you will likely have better success using ant baits around these plants. Be sure that the ants are not attracted to water collecting in pots due to over-watered plants, or to honeydew produced by a sucking pest such as aphids or mealybugs on the plants. You could use a small amount of granules such as Maxforce Complete Granular Bait in and around each pot. You could also use a gel bait on the edges of pots if the ants appear to be attracted to moisture or sweets like honeydew. Maxforce Quantum would be a great choice since it holds moisture well and comes with stations.
Please refer to our Ant Treatment Guide for more tips.
We would recommend using Talstar PL granules in your lawn. This will kill and prevent centipedes and various other insects. Be sure to water the product in after application. This will last 2-3 months in the soil. Talstar P would be a good choice to use around the inside and outside of your home to eliminate centipedes. Indoors you can apply Talstar P to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, and any other place where the insects can gain entry. Outdoors you should apply the product to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, around the bottom of the foundation and out onto the ground directly around the foundation. You can also limit favorable conditions that the centipedes need to thrive.
