    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
    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.

    Q
    What to use on armyworms
    high up in trees
    A
    Talstar P is a popular choice for tent caterpillars aka army worms.  Directly spray the plant foliage and nest. The larvae are usually easy to contact if spraying is done in late morning when the larvae congregate on the tent surface to warm in the sun. Mechanical control is also helpful with this pest. The egg masses are easy to spot after the leaves have dropped in the fall. Simply clip off and crush or drop into a bucket of soapy water.

    Q
    Can Taurus SC and Talstar P be used in the same areas?
    I used Taurus SC for termite prevention. I trenched my home with it. But I’m planning on using Talstar P for mosquito and insect control. Can I spray my outside home with Talstar even though I trenched it using Taurus SC? Will it cause the trench to not be as effective if both are used in the same areas?
    A

    Talstar P Professional Insecticide can be used as a spray for general pests over the trench as the termites would not be affected by it since they are below the soil.  It will have no effect on the treated soil. We have a great guide for treating mosquitoes here.

    Q
    Should I cover my face or use a breathing apparatus while using Talstar P?
    A

    Per the Talstar P label, when applying mixed solution, the applicator needs to wear shirt, shoes, socks, pants and waterproof gloves. If applying in a non-ventilated area, applicator will need to wear a resperatory mask. You may want to look at our Basic Safety Kit for the necessary protective gear.

  • Asked by Sharlene from South Boston , Va

    Q
    Can Talstar and Suspend Polyzone be mixed together?
    A

    There is no valid reason to mix Suspend Polyzone and Talstar P together. Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Suspend Polyzone already contains a synthetic pyrethroid, so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide 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.

  • Asked by Jason from Mass And New Hampshire
    05/31/2015
    Q
    Can you compare Talstar P to Essentria IC3? Does it kill carpenter ants and mosquitoes? Similar pricing?
    A
    Talstar P is a water based synthetic pyrethroid and Essentria IC3 is a natural product made up of botanical oils. They contain different active ingredients. They are listed for some of the same insects including ants and mosquitoes. They both have the same length of residual after applied. Essentria IC3 can be applied near water areas without harming aquatic life and Talstar P should NOT be applied to those areas. Talstar is offered in a pint, quart, 3/4 gallon and gallon concentrated bottles and diluted at an ounce per gallon of water. Essentria IC3 is available in a quart and gallon size and you will mix 1-10 oz per gallon of water depending on the insect targeted.

    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P with TZone (weed killer) to apply at the same time?
    A

    Most insecticides and herbicides are able to be tank mixed together, just make sure you follow each product label instructions for "tank mixing" instructions. 

    Talstar P is able to be tank mixed according the label but since we do not carry T-Zone Weed Killer, we cannot confirm the tank mix compatability.

    Q
    What to use to kill digger wasps that come in May and gone in June?
    They make many holes in the earth with mounds of soil around them in the lawn and garden. They do not seem to sting. They look like a small brown bee.
    A
    It sounds like they could possibly be Cicada Killers. To treat Cicada Killers, you can discourage the wasps from nesting in your yard by cutting your grass on the highest setting and by adding a thick layer of mulch to flower beds during the Cicada Killer Wasp season. These wasps do not like over saturated lawns either, so over watering during their season will help prevent them. Unfortunately, there is no fool proof way to prevent cicada killer wasps. For current infestations, you would need to use Delta dust in each individual burrow. Using a residual like Talstar P will also kill them when they come in contact with the treated areas.

    Q
    Will Talstar P Kill and get rid of Blind mosquitos?
    Live on a lake.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) will kill Blind mosquitos, but since you listed that you live on a lake, EcoVia would be best. EcoVia EC can safely be applied in and around homes, businesses, near and over water such as boat docks and pool areas without harming aquatic life, as well as numerous other areas. EcoVia EC is safe to use around children and pets.
