    Q
    Can I kill carpenter ants in an outside all wood building using Talstar P?
    I am not able to do drilling and need something that is effective, easy and not to costly.
    A

    Talstar P can be used to kill carpenter ants that are sprayed directly or which contact the residual spray. However, Talstar P will not transfer throughout an ant colony to kill the entire colony. If you are finding carpenter ants trailing indoors, then we recommend our Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit, which includes two different baits, refillable bait stations, and a residual spray with two active ingredients. If the ants are in a wall void and you are unable to bait for them, then another great option is applying a ready-to-use non-repellent foam such as FUSE Foam into the wall void where the nest is. Please refer to our online Carpenter Ant Treatment Guide for more tips.

    Q
    I just realized I was mixing the Talstar P (Talstar One) too strong at 3 oz to a gallon. What should I do?
    A

    Making a pesticide like Talstar P (Talstar One) too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation.  Simply wipe down, or wash off areas of application and re-apply at the correct rate of 1 oz to a gallon of water.

    Q
    Can you recommend a long lasting product(s) for use against fire ants, as well as general pests in liquid?
    A long lasting liquid liquid pest control for ants, and other exterior pests in perimeter / yard. I live in south Louisiana. I am already using Taurus, for termite issues. Also needs to be pet safe.
    A

    Talstar P can be used for fire ant control, but you will also need to do mound drenching. According to the Talstar P product label, "Fire Ant Mound control is optimized by combining broadcast applications that will control foraging workers and newly mated fly-in queens with mound drenches that will control existing colonies. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application or use a high volume application. Apply broadcast treatments at 0.5 to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Use enough finished volume to penetrate thatch or sod. Treat mounds by applying 1 oz of Talstar P per mound in 1 to 2 gallons water by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat 3 feet out around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12€. Treat mounds with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 - 80?F) or in early morning or late evening hours."

    Q
    Will Talstar P work to protect bedding against lice?
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled for head lice and should not be applied to bedding or clothing. We recommend that you launder the bedding in heat and use an over the counter hair treatment product meant for head lice. Steri-Fab can be applied to mattresses, furniture, cracks and crevices. Bedlam can be used for residual control to baseboards and listed areas on the product label for lice.

    Q
    How is Talstar P Professional Insecticide used for ant control in the yard? I have a backpack sprayer and mist blower.
    A

    When using Talstar P Professional Insecticide for ant control, mix 1 fl oz per gallon of water, locate and treat ant nests, and trails around doors and windows and other places where ants have been observed or are expected to forage. Spray the exterior perimeter foundation 2 to 3 ft up and 2 to 3 ft out from the foundation. For ant control in the lawn, mix at the same 1 fl oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft.

    For treating Fire Ants, the best control is obtained by a broadcast application along with mound drenches. Apply broadcast treatments at 0.6 to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Treat mounds by applying 1 fl oz Talstar P Professional per mound in 1 to 2 gallons water by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat 3 feet out around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12”. Treat mounds with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 - 80?F) or in the early morning or late evening hours.

    Please review the Application Directions Ant Control on page 4 of the product label

  • Asked by Rob from Lou. Ky.
    08/11/2014
    Q
    What is the best way to control adult bagworm infestation?
    I'd like to treat with spray and then systemically.
    A
    Talstar P is the #1 recommended product for bagworm control. TalstarP is known to have a very low toxicity for mammals making it safe to use around people and pets. Please visit the Talstar P product page where you can review the product label as well as the MSDS. Talstar P applications should start in April and continue monthly through June for bagworm control. Be sure foliage is sprayed thorughly to the point of runoff to achieve adequate coverage.

    The only systemic insecticide that we are aware of that is labeled for bagworms is Bonide Systemic Insect Control with Acephate but it is only labeled for use on shade trees and you must spray all of the foliage to get the desired results.Below you will see what we usually recommend for bagworm control.


    Bagworm recommendations:

    It is important to start control methods before a major infestation occurs. Once the bagworms have matured and have formed the "bag" most chemical control methods will no longer work.

    You can manually control bagworms by simply plucking them off of the infested trees and dropping them into a bucket of soapy water or squishing them.  This control method is most useful during fall, winter and early spring, before the eggs inside the bag have hatched.

    Chemical control may be achieved when the larvae are small and just emerging from the over-wintering bag.  Use a concentrated liquid insecticide such as Talstar or Tempo. Foliage should be thoroughly wetted with the insecticide spray in order to achieve thorough coverage.  When doing an insecticide treatment, timing is key. To find out the correct time of year to treat for bagworms in your region contact you local Cooperative Extension office. These offices can prove to be invaluable when treating for insect pests.

    Q
    Could I feasibly use Talstar P inside of a couch infested with brown recluse?
    I intend to throw the couch away but am afraid to move it before I can do something to kill the spiders inside the couch. Is there any reason I couldn't cut a hole in the fabric of the couch and spray inside the hollow base?
    A

     Talstar P (Talstar One) is not labeled to be used on couchs or furninture in that way.  You could instead use a product like CB 80 as a contact kill.

    Q
    I am spraying my backyard to kill fleas, and I live in humid region. I am concerned about Talstar drying.
    I have several dogs, and I a want to spray in the evening when they are inside, however I am concerned about the humidity not allowing the spray to dry before morning. I also wanted to know if the morning condesation will be an issue? Is the morning or the afternoon better for a humid climate?
    A
    Talstar P is a water based product that dries just as fast as water alone would dry.  Spraying in the afternoon would be best to allow the product to dry better.  The morning condesation should not be an issue as once Talstar dries it will stay on the surface pretty well.  You would apply once a month keeping pets out of the area.

    Q
    I’ve read conflicting responses as to timing of watering - wait or water immediately after Talstar application
    I’m using the liquid version on St Augustine grass to kill chinch bugs in lawn. Sometimes it seem that you suggest waiting 6 hours before rain or watering. Other times it seems that you say water in immediately after application 0.25 to .5 inches.
    A

    When you are using Talstar P (Talstar One) to treat for subsurface insects such as mole crickets, chinch bugs, etc., you will to water in after application per the product label.  When applying as pest control product for surface pests, you will wait to water at least 24 hours after application.
