    Q
    Which product is best for all around inside pest control in a household with dogs and cats?
    I'm looking to save a little money rather than paying an expensive quarterly contract. I would like something that I could use inside and out of the house. I would like it not to have a residue. There are so many to choose from.
    A
    We recommend Talstar P for outdoor/indoor control of most flying and crawling insects. Talsta P is safe to use around animals as long as they are out of the area while you are spraying, they can return as soon as the area is dry. Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and will not break down easily with rainfall.

    Q
    How much Talstar P will I need for a 5 acre yard ?
    A
    The amount of Talstar P you will need for a 5 acre property will depend primarily on what pest you are trying to eliminate. An acre is 43,650 sq ft and you will need anywhere from a 1/4 fl oz - 1 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft area. Please take a few moments to read over the Talstar P product label to find the correct usage rate for your needs.

    Q
    Will Talstar kill the geckos?
    I don't want to kill the geckos just the Mosquitos will this work?
    A
    If the lizards are sprayed directly with the Talstar P it may cause them harm. If they travel over dried deposits of the Talstar P it would be less likely to cause any issues.

    Q
    What is good for camel spiders in central Colorado?
    I am looking for a spray to do the perimeter and possibly the baseboards for camel spiders. I live in Florida but do property management in CO. Hopefully something cheaper then Termidor.
    A

    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.

  • Asked by Caddo
    05/02/2011
    Q
    Can Cy-Kick CS be mixed with Talstar P for mosquito control?
    If so how much of each product per gallon to treat 1000 sqft? If not Talstar what can be mixed for quick knockdown and at what rate/gallon/1000sqft
    A
    No. Cy-Kick CS and Talstar P are both synthetic pyrethroids and there would be no valid reason to mix them together. We recommend that you stick with the Talstar P. Use 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon of water to treat a 1,000 sq ft area for the best knockdown and the longest residual. If you want a faster knockdown than the Talstar P alone can provide you can add 1 oz ExciteR to the Talstar/water mixture. ExciteR is a pyrethrin product which provides a super fast knockdown but no residual.

    Q
    How do we get rid of field mice/stinkbugs/flying squirrels and "ladybugs"?
    we bought a modular home (we are second owners/hse vacant for 1yr) - had exterminating contract for 1 yr - yr is over, no luck. have 4 indoor cats - tried do it yourself products - no luck - they are dirty, leave droppings, curtains spotted (from bugs), vacuuming up constant - mice/squirrels in walls keep us awake - can even hear them above the fan! afraid they will chew wires etc and set the house on fire. HELP
    A
    Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like there are a few things going on here. First, please see our squirrel control page.  If you know where the squirrels are entering you can use a Squirrel trap. Also, try and seal up any entry points using copper mesh. This will help with the mice as well. Second, please see our Mice control page. You can use the  Rodent Kit to bait and kill the mice. You would place the tamper resistant bait stations around the outside perimeter of your home. Lastly, we would recommend using Talstar P for your insect control indoors and out.

  • Asked by Torry from New Gloucester Maine
    08/15/2013
    Q
    Will Talstar work for an exterior treatment for cluster flies and lady bugs
    i have always used termidor but looking for something less expensive
    A
    Talstar P can be used to help control cluster flies and lady bugs indoors and outdoors. If the cluster flies have already made their way indoors, they will be harder to control because they usually hide in a wall void or other inaccessible area and are only visible when the house warms up. If the cluster flies are in an attic or drop ceiling or other dark area, a fly light would do a great job controlling the population. Using small fly lights such as the Fly Web in the house would also help to catch the flies. Spray Talstar P directly on baseboards, window frames, door frames, and places where utilities (pipes, wires, cables) enter in to the building and any other crack, crevice or gap where insects can enter.

    Q
    Do you recommend any pest control for wood mulch around a play set?
    We have put up a play set (swings, slide, sand box), and we have put wood mulch around it as a cushion for the play set. I have been told that ants (and other undesired bugs) make this their home. Is there something I can use that is kid friendly (my daughter is old enough not to eat the wood chips) if any gets on her hands or feet?
    A
    You can spray around the perimeter of the play area with Talstar P. Talstar P has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for up to three months after you have sprayed it. Plus, Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and will not break down easily with rainfall. We do not recommend spraying any insecticides directly on areas where children will be coming in skin contact on a regular basis.

  • Asked by Karen from Painesville, Oh
    05/15/2012
    Q
    What is the best product to prevent both crawling and flying insects?
    We spend hundreds of $$ every year to have our house sprayed to prevent bees, ants, spiders, etc. The exterminator guarantees the spray for 6 months. Is there a product that would do the same that we could do ourselves?
    A
    There are not any insecticides on the market that will last for 6 months outdoors. What actually happens is the exterminator will spray a product and wipe out all of the insects nearby and it can take many months for the pests to build back up to an intolerable level. If you have been happy with the treatment the pest control operator has been using you can ask them what product they have been using. Most PCO's will also write the name of the product or the active ingredient on your bill as most states require this. We carry just about any product your PCO would have used. Our most popular general use insecticide among professionals and homeowners is Talstar P. 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.

  • Asked by Jeff from Davidsonville, Md
    05/28/2017
    Q
    I use a Talstar/Nyguard mixture. Can this hurt plants/shrubs/trees?
    I spray 1 oz per gallon of Talstar and 9ml of Nyguard for 4 gallons of water. I want to make sure I won't hurt Japanese Maple trees or any trees for that matter. Thank you.
    A

    Talstar P is known for being super gentle on plants and when it and Nyguard IGR are used as directed should not harm plants.  Avoid spraying during the heat of the day to prevent burn.

    Q
    Is Talstar systemic?
    I am looking for a systemic chemical for spider mites on tropical hibiscus. A local garden center recommended Hi-Yield 38. Do you have a recommendation. I have 200+ plants.
    A

    Neither Talstar P Professional Insecticide or Hi-Yield 38 are systemic products. We are unaware of any systemic product that is labeled for use for spider-mite control as a soil drench.  This pest is mainly treated with foliar sprays with something like Talstar P,  Avid (which is a translaminar systemic – meaning absorbed through the leaves), or Hexygon DF.

    Q
    What are the two tops to the Talstar P bottle for?
    On Talstar P has 2 outlets, how come, what do I do with 2 outlets.
    A
    Most professional pest control products come in a bottle with a built in measuring device.  The top to the left has a measuring reservoir that measures in 1/2 and 1 ounce increments so you can easily mix the product with water.  The right hand side is just a normal top that will allow all of the product to come out.  Most people never open the right hand side though because most people just use an ounce at a time.

    Also, can i use a springtail product that will not effect Termidor sprayed 2 months ago?

    Q
    Can I apply Talstar P around the house and windows using a garden hose sprayer? It seems as if it would be easier and faster than using the hand held sprayer.
    A
    You can apply Talstar P using a hose end sprayer. Be sure your hose end sprayer can be calibrated to the correct usage rate for the pest and area you want to treat. We do carry the Chapin Hose End Sprayer 6005 which can be calibrated for any usage rate listed on the Talstar P product label.
