    What to use for ground bees?
    what to use for ground bees?
    A
    Ground bees, also known as digger bees, can be very difficult to control no matter what product you use and they most likely will come back to your property year after year unless you do your part to alter your property to make it unfavorable to the bees. Ground bees prefer dry soils with thin grasses so irrigating the area frequently and correcting any issue that causes your grass to be thin will help deter the bees from nesting. In areas where you do not have grass, a layer of mulch will help deter the bees from nesting. Ground bees are solitary bees and are not very aggressive and are known to be a beneficial insect which is why you will not find any products specifically labeled for this type of bee. Talstar P can help provide some level of control but it will not get rid of all of the ground bees on your property. You should use Talstar P at a 1 oz of product to 1 gallon of water for a 1,000 sq ft area ratio. This will give you the fastest knockdown and the longest lasting residual. Talstar P does not offer an instant knockdown but will kill insects that come into contact with treated areas over a short period of time.

    Q
    My puppy likes to pull out grass by the mouthful, then chew on it. Is Talstar P (Talstar One) safe for this?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) after dilution is only strong enough to kill small insects. Your puppy would have to eat loads of treated grass for Talstar it to harm it. Be sure to keep the puppy out of the treated area until dried.

    Q
    How much Talstar P do I use to make 1 gallon of solution to treat bedbugs?
    I'm trying to rid my home of bed bugs.
    A

    Use a 0.06% dilution of Talstar P (1 fluid oz. per gallon of water) for bedbug control. A thorough application should be made to crack and crevices where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, box springs, inside empty dressers and clothes closets and carpet edges,high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use this product on bed linens, pillows, mattresses or clothes. Remove all clothes and other articles from dressers or clothes closets before application. Allow all treated areas to thoroughly dry before use. Not recommended for use as sole protection against bedbugs. If evidence of bedbugs is found in/on mattresses, use products approved for this use such as Bedlam aerosol and Protect-A-Bed mattress, boxspring and pillow encasements

    Q
    Will TalstarPro kill a St. Augustine lawn if more than 1oz is applied when treating for Chinch bugs?
    When using the Chapin wet/dry sprayer much more of the solution was sprayed than the directions suggested and we now have 3.5oz of TalstarPro on just over 500sqft of lawn. We followed instructions step by step, but apparently still made and error somewhere.
    A

    While we do not recommend to apply Talstar P (Talstar One) at a higher rate than 1oz, your lawn should be just fine. Please keep in mind that it's also recommended to apply during cooler times of the day.

  • Asked by Ben from Gaston, Sc
    09/22/2014
    Q
    What causes could there be for ants coming back within a week?
    I live in central SC with sandy soil. Talastar kills the ants and other insects well, but I have new mounds in as little as 5-7 days. I have broadcast sprayed, treated mounds at a rate of 1 oz, per gallon and it doesn't seem to have the lasting effect of 3-4 months like advertised.
    A
    Ant bait products are the best solution for effective argentine ant control and small black ant control. Ant baits will hit the colony at the source, whereas insecticide sprays such as Talstar P will only cause stress on the colony, causing it to split into a larger number of sub-colonies, making the infestation worse. We would recommend using our Complete Ant Kit which comes with both a sugar based bait as well as a protein based bait to ensure bait acceptance regardless of what the ants are lacking nutritionally. We would also like you to read over our staff written article, How To Get Rid of Argentine Ants to learn more.

    Q
    What is the best product to use around my home for general pest control?
    I had a professional pest control company that I no longer use. They only used an outside barrier spray, but never had insects, except maybe a few ants. I just recently have seen some very small bugs in my house on occasion. Do you have a good barrier bug control. I am a regular customer of you folks. Thank you!
    A
    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.

    Q
    I accidentally mixed 2 oz of Talstar to 1 gallon of water. Will that make the product less effective?
    A

    It should not harm anything to apply Talstar at this rate one time. We recommend that you wait for 30 days outside (90 days inside) to reapply at the rate of 0.5-1 oz per gallon of water.

    Q
    How to get rid of sand gnats for a backyard wedding in June?
    We live in Georgia on the marsh and would like to have a gnat free evening in June for our son's wedding? Have any suggestions?
    A
    Talstar P will offer some control if applied to the trees, bushes and grass a few days before the wedding to lower the gnat population in the area. The morning of the wedding you may want to try to use a pyrethrin based product such as Riptide in a mist blower over the whole area which will kill anything that is flying around and help repel the gnats from the area for several hours.

  • Asked by Todd from Spencer, Wi
    07/29/2012
    Q
    Can I leave diluted spray in my sprayer overnight? Can I use it next day? If not why?
    A
    Insecticide manufacturers do not recommend that you leave the products in the diluted states for more than 24 hours or you will risk the efficacy. The longer the products sit in the diluted state the more they will lose their potency. You can also risk breaking down the components on your hand pump sprayer.

    As long as the area is dried after Talstar application, it is safe for pets to re-enter. Rain will not "reactivate" the product.

    Q
    What would help with control/death of indoor aphids? It's an epidemic.
    A
    Talstar is one of our most popular products for aphids as well as any other insect.  It is our most popular product and widely used by professional companies both outside and inside homes.  You can apply Talstar to any plant, shrub, bush, or turf grass, as well as inside and outside perimeters, as long as you are not applying it to anything edible.
