    Q
    Which to use first Termidor SC or Talstar P on my newly constructed home and barrier?
    I am considering using both Termador SC (because I had such great results with it in the past) as a protective barrier on my home. I also want to do a barrier with Talstar P because of all the other pests (mosquitos, roaches, stink bugs) that it treats. Which should I product use first? Should I wait a period of time before applying the other product? Will the products work adversely or well with each other? Thanks

    Q
    When should I treat for sod webworms in Central Florida? What should I use that is safe for bahia grass?
    A

    The most popular product for sod webworms is Talstar. Talstar is very effective on most insects and it is safe for bahia grass. Time applications to control young larvae, if possible. Spot treatments may be applied when infestations are first detected and the damaged area is small. The treatment will be most effective if applied in the early evening when larvae begin feeding. Please take a look at our Sod Webworm Treatment Guide for more information.

    Q
    On a Stihl backpack blower, what meter setting is best to use to apply Talstar for mosquitoes?
    A

    As long as you are using the Talstar P at the proper dilution rate in the tank, the metering rate would just be dependent on how quickly you are walking during application.  Unfortunatley, we do not carry Stihl blowers so we cannot give you an exact answer.  However, we can thell you that with our Solo 451 blower, we suggest a metereing rate of 2 (from a range of 1-4) for a normal pace during application.  For most applications, you will mix 0.5-1 oz per gallon per 1,000 sq ft.

    No. Talstar should not be applied to any seats or furniture. You should instead use a product such as Sterifab. Sterifab is safe to use on areas where you will come into skin contact such as a car seat.

    Q
    Professional sprayed Talstar P in florida room along baseboards and windows.
    I had a carpenter ant problem in my florida room ceiling. Pest control guy sprayed all along the windows and baseboard. Before he sprayed I told him I had an infant that would be crawling in that room. I was very nervous, but he said not to be concerned, once the product dries. He made me feel like a weirdo. I waited a good month before I let anyone enter the room. I wanted to shampoo the carpets, because I am sure his sprayer got spray on the edge of carpet/baseboard. I called a few companies and they said if I shampooed the carpets the product would be useless. So, I never did. I did however, wipe the baseboards and doors. As a worried parent, is my child safe? We have to walk through this room to get in our back yard. She has already been crawling on the floor and probably have put her hands in her mouth afterwards. After a little research of half lives, it seems talspar p lasts a long time. So I am worried that there was a residual on the carpet, she touched it, than put fingers in her mouth. Please, any info will be greatly appreciated.
    A
    Talstar P is labeled to be pet and child safe once dry and one of our most popular general insecticides for inhome use. When Talstar P is applied as a crack and crevice treatment along baseboards, window frames and door entry points and had time enough time to dry, it will not pose any harm to human contact. This product is not labeled to be sprayed as a broadcast on carpeted areas inside the home, only applied as crack and crevice.  Talstar P does have a 90 day residual on the inside of the home, but if the areas where the product was applied has been wiped down with warm soapy water, the product has been removed and would not longer be effective.

    Talstar P cannot be used on any type of edible vegetation. Cyonara Lawn Yard and Garden would be labeled to do so and to treat grasshoppers.

    Q
    What ratio do you mix Talstar P to treat for termites?
    A

    Talstar P is labeled to treat for termites and lasts for about 5 years in the ground and works as a repellent, killing only those insects that come into contact with the treated area. A better option for subterranean termites non repellent termiticide such as Termidor SC or Dominion 2L. Termidor will last up to to 10 years in the soil and Dominion 2L will last 5-7 years. Non repellents work slower but much more effectively when treating a termite colony as they are able to be transferred thorought the entire colony therefore eventually elimating the colony. Talstar P will only repel the termites, not kill the entire colony.

    Q
    We have a sun conure (bird) in the house. How safe is Talstar P to use around him?
    We will be spraying the room he is in. We know he has to be removed when we spray, but how long before we can bring him back to that room safely.
    A
    Talstar P is very safe to use around children and pets once it is dry.  You are correct that you should remove the bird and any other animals and children from the room while you are performing the treatment.  Once the treatment is dry, which usually takes about 45 minutes, it is perfectly safe to place the bird and other pets back into the room.

    Q
    Can 30 ml of Talstar P kill broad mites?
    I know it's not listed for them but will it provide a quick knock down.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is mixed at 1 fl oz per gallon of water. It can be applied safely to ornamentals (nothing edible). While it might kill broad mites as well it is not labeled for them so we cannot recommend it for this use.
