Our most popular general use product is called Talstar. It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets. It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer. It will last for 60 to 90 days outside in between treatments. It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf eating pests. Talstar is also available in a granule formula called Talstar PL if you prefer to use granules.
Talstar will kill any wasp, bee, or hornet that comes into contact with a treated area. Keep in mind that this is not a contact kill product, so it can take up to 24 hours for the insect to die after contacting a treated surface. You can also use a product like Wasp Freeze as a contact kill. If you know where any of the nests are located, you can use Wasp Freeze to treat those directly as well. It is best to apply any insecticides in the early morning or evening when the wasps/bees/hornets are least active.
Talstar P is the #1 recommended product for bagworm control. You will need to use 1 oz. of Talstar per gallon of water. Applications should start in April and continue monthly through June. Be sure foliage is sprayed thoroughly to the point of runoff to achieve adequate coverage. Talstar can be applied with a hose end sprayer, but it is best to use a hand pump sprayer if possible to ensure the most even coverage.
Unfortunately, Talstar P is not labeled to treat fruit flies. Fruit flies are attracted to rotten or fermented fruit and vegetables not house plants. However, they can also make homes in drains, garbage disposals, mop buckets, garbage cans, and recycle bins. Even something as small as spilled juice under your refrigerator can be a home for them; all they need is a thin layer of organic material.
Getting rid of fruit flies doesn' t have to be difficult. Cleaning up is the most important step in getting rid of them because they are naturally drawn to overripe, rotting, or spoiled produce. Therefore, merely throwing out such items or storing them in the refrigerator or sealed containers will lead to a drastic decline in the number of fruit flies, even without any further action on your part. Also, regularly rinsing out your garbage cans and recycle bins.
There are several different priduct you can use to get rid of fruit flies. Beccause they are flying insects, one of the best ways to kill fruit flies in your house is to use a fruti fly trap like the Vector 960 Fruti Fly Trap. Besides fruit fly traps, there are many different fruit fly sprays that will aid you in killing them as well such as 565 Plus XLO.
If you are only seeing flies around the indoor plants, then you may actually have fungus gnats, for which you could treat the plants with Talstar P. The most important step to eliminating fungus gnats is to avoid over-watering the plants, and to allow soil to dry out to reduce their food source and breeding environment.
