According to the Talstar P product label "all pesticide handlers must wear a respiratory protection device when working in a non-ventilated space." Respiratory devices are not required for well ventilated spaces or outdoor applications. The Talstar P product label also says "all applicators should wear longsleeved shirt and long pants, socks, shoes and chemical-resistant gloves."
Yes, you can use Talstar P in both food/feed and non-food/feed areas of food-handling establishments like restaurants as a spot or crack and crevice spray. Be sure this is not while the restaurant is in operation, and that you are not contaminating food, utensils, or food-handling surfaces. Please see Page 6 of the product label for complete directions on using Talsar in Food/Feed Establishments.
Talstar P is a great general purpose insecticide that is labeled for over 75 types of insects that can be used indoors and outdoors. Talstar P has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it. Plus, Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.
Inside the building, apply as a coarse, low pressure, crack and crevice or spot spray to areas where pests hide, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas.
Outside the home or building, general application for crawling pests - Mix 0.5 or 1 oz. of Talstar P in one gallon of water and apply to the outside foundation of the building, approx. 3 feet up the side of the house and 2 feet out from the building. Also spray entry points into the home such as around windows, pipes, doorways, etc. For general preventative treatment, apply Talstar P once every 3 months.
Talstar P must be used or discarded within 24 hours of mixing.
You can use a hose-end sprayer to apply Talstar P. You shoul use 1 oz per 1000 sq ft, and we recommend using 1-3 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft. Keep in mind that it is most important to use the correct amount of concentrate and then think of the water as a carrier, so it is better to use a bit more water than to use too little. For example, to treat half your yard, you would use 7.5 oz at a rate no higher than 1 oz per gal of water, but usually it is best to use a rate of 0.3 or 0.5 oz per gal of water with a hose-end sprayer. You can always start with a small area and test using just water to get an idea for how heavily you tend to spray and how fast you walk when spraying.

Camel spiders certainly look scary but are basically harmless. You can treat the exterior and interior of structures if needed with a product such as Talstar P. Talstar works well for spiders, scorpions and other invading pests. We usually would not recommend Termidor for spider control as it is a very slow acting insecticide.
