Yes, Talstar P can be used when the chickens are not in the coop. Once the product has dried completely, it is safe for them to return to the area. This is generally between 2-3 hours.
There is no valid reason to mix Suspend SC and Talstar P together. Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Suspend SC already contains a synthetic pyrethroid, so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation.
Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control. It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using any hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio you are trying to provide relief at. It should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well which is where the mosquitoes hang out. It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control. Best of all it will not harm any birds in the area.
Talstar P (Talstar One) should NOT be applied to lemon trees or other edible vegetation. If the edibles were treated, you should not consume the fruit. Please provide the targeted pest for an alternate product recommendation for treatment.
Talstar P mixed with an Insect Growth regulator such as Nyguard IGR would be a good choice for tick control. Talstar P would work to kill ticks that come into contact with treated surfaces while the Nyguard would work to help stop juvenile ticks from reaching sexual maturity. We recommend using the highest usage rate of 1 oz Talstar and 1 oz of Nyguard IGR per gallon of water.
We recommend applying Talstar anytime of the day EXCEPT during the middle of the day. The key with mosquitoes is to apply to the underside of the leaves as that is where the adults lay during the day.
No, Talstar P is an insecticide that does a great job killing insects, but it will not kill mice.
Yes, Talstar P can be used for fire ant control in the type of sprayer you described, but you will also need to do mound drenching. According to the Talstar P product label, "Fire Ant Mound control is optimized by combining broadcast applications that will control foraging workers and newly mated fly-in queens with mound drenches that will control existing colonies. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application or use a high volume application. Apply broadcast treatments at 0.5 to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Use enough finished volume to penetrate thatch or sod. Treat mounds by applying 1 oz of Talstar P per mound in 1 to 2 gallons water by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat 3 feet out around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12”. Treat mounds with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 - 80F) or in early morning or late evening hours."
