    Q
    I have Talstar P and have used Ortho Bug-B-Gon, can I use that hose end sprayer and how much do I put in?
    I figured about 1/3 teaspoon, am I close or way off?
    A
    You can use Talstar P in a hose end sprayer as long as the hose end sprayer can be calibrated to spray the correct usage rate as specified on the product label. Most folks use the 1 oz of product to 1 gallon of product rate for outdoor insect control.

    Q
    My apple tree has a carpenter ant nest.
    If Talstar P should not be used on fruit trees, what is safe to use and eliminate the carpenter ants? If Talstar P is used to kill the carpenter ants on the fruit tree, is the fruit safe to eat after one year from using Talstar P.?
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) cannot be used on an apple tree. We would recommend using the Carpenter Ant Kit # 1. It has a granular and a sugar bait. This can be placed in areas around the tree. The ants will take food back to the colony and eradicate it.

    Q
    Earwig Infestation
    I have hundreds of earwigs that crawl on the exterior of my home - foundation and siding all the way to the eaves of my house. We get 5 to 10 inside a day. I need a powerful granule to kill them in the ground and something to prevent them from crawling on the side of the house. I have a .5 acres of land and have done everything I can do to keep the area around my house cleaned up. I have caulked the obvious cracks and put up weather stripping.
    A
    First, do you have mulch or pinstraw around your home? If so, pull that off your house.  Talstar P would be a great choice for earwigs. You can spray both indoors and outdoors with this product. Talstar P, one of our best sellers, has a long residual, is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and wont break down easily with rainfall. Also, be sure to focus on mulched areas, or areas that hold moisture in the lawn.

    Q
    What's a good treatment for around perimeter of the house in early spring?
    With warmer weather forecasted in central PA, it usually means some pre-spring activity is certain to happen, especially ants, flying ants, and horse flies and such.
    A

    You can prevent ants, flies and other insects from entering your home by applying a long lasting residual product such as Talstar. Talstar kills over 75 different insects and is safe to use indoors and outdoors, is gentle on plants, is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall. We also suggest you use Integrated Pest Management or IPM. IPM is a step by step approach that helps you identify the pest and determine why that pest is there, and then determine how to exclude the pest in the future. Please read the IPM article to learn how to successfully stop pests before they become a problem.

    Q
    What is the best insecticide concentrate for North Texas?
    Get a lot of centipedes, looks like worms, and pill bugs. I live in Dallas Fort worth Texas. What would be the best Insecticide concentrate for my home? Talstar I was thinking might be good.
    A

    Talstar P is a great choice for general pest control. Keep in mind that earthworms are beneficial and will not be listed on any insecticide labels. Another excellent option for a climate with very hot summers would be Suspend Polyzone, which is encapsulated in a polymer layer for better longevity in heat and sunlight. You may also want to take a few moments to review our General Pest Prevention Guide for more tips and information.

    Q
    I have Mealybugs on my Hibiscus plants. How much Talstar Pshould I use in a 32 oz spray bottle?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) rate is 0.5 to 1.0 fl oz per gallon of water.  For smaller amounts of water such as a quart you would just use ¼ of that.  It must be applied in a pump sprayer to be used correctly not a trigger sprayer like a 409/Windex bottle.

    Q
    When can you clean the floors after the inside of your house has been sprayed with Talstar?
    With that question: does cleaning the floor remove any residue left after it's dry? And if the floor gets wet where the spray was dry is it bad for young children and pets?
    A

    Talstar is meant to be applied to cracks and crevices not as a broadcast to floors. If you do mop an area that Talstar has been applied, then you could potentially take the product up and Talstar would need to be re applied.

    Q
    My questions are regarding Talstar. What are the health concerns of spray getting into the swimming pool?
    Also, why did an answer say it was safe to spray on food handling areas, but not on seats in car? What are the concerns of spraying Talstar around AC units outside a house that are currently in operation? Do you feel that Pressure Washing furniture will remove Talstar residue, and do you think the residue (although colorless and odorless) is harmful?
    A
    You should avoid getting Talstar P into swimming pools though small amounts that accidentally get in a pool will be so diluted that there shouldn't be any concern. Talstar P is labeled to be used in food handling establishments and food handling areas but all of the food prep surfaces and food products and utensils must be covered and the application must be kept to cracks and crevices only. Talstar P is only labeled for use in cracks and crevices when using indoors which is why we would have said no to spraying on the surface of a seat (Talstar P is not labeled to spray on any furniture in general). If you choose to spray around or on your A/C unit you should shut it off prior to the application and resume operation after the application is dry. You should not spray the surface of your lawn furniture with Talstar P (or any other insecticide). If the surface has already been sprayed you should thoroughly wash it with soap and copious amounts of water. When used as directed on the Talstar P product label this product  and the dry residual it leaves behind is safe for people and pets.

    I am going to spray Talstar P on 3100sf my backyard. My question is I need to mix the 1oz per gallon of water do I need to spray all of that with my sprayer or can I use a Waterhouse attachment to spray.

    A

    You should caliberate your sprayer to disperse 1 fl oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft.

    Q
    Talstar for winter moths
    I would like to spray my own property to deal with mainly winter moth but also Japanese beetles and aphids. Should a respirator be worn and is full body suit needed? Also, I am looking for suggestion on an affordable pump/sprayer setup. I'm sure the setups to get 80-100 feet up are way too expensive but maybe something to do 40-60 feet up using a 55 gallon drum.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is labeled for moths and beetles. It is not labeled for aphids.

    We would recommend using Demand CS. It is labeled for moths, adult Japanese beetles and aphids. This can be sprayed on ornamental plants and across your lawn. Use 1.5 – 5 fl. oz (44-148 mL) / 100 gallons of water – May be applied at 7-day intervals if necessary. Use lower dilution rates for more frequent applications or limit to spot treatment. The addition of a spreader sticker may increase application to waxy foliage. It can also be used indoors as well. You will use 0.4 fl. oz. per gallon of water. You will spray along the baseboards and cracks and crevices.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Q
    What would work on sand flies?
    A

    These insects do not truly infest a home as they do not reproduce in the indoor environment, but they may still be abundant inside if their breeding site is close by. Unfortunately, the breeding sites for these flies are so numerous and varied, it is impossible to eliminate them all. These tiny pests are small enough to crawl through the average window screen and fit through cracks and crevices around windows and door frames.

    You can help prevent these flies from entering your home by spraying a barrier application of Talstar P paying special attention to window frames, window screens, door frames, and cracks and crevices that may be used as points of entry.  A screen with a very fine mesh (smaller than 16mesh) will help prevent entry. Additionally it may be helpful to keep ceiling fans and window fans on at high speeds to keep insects out of small areas.

    If flies have already entered your home and you need immediate control use Microcare. This product offers a fast knockdown and kill of flying insects, giving you immediate relief.
