    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
    06/06/2018
    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

    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.

    Q
    How do I apply Talstar P for termite control on a block house in Florida?
    We need to treat a limited amount of wood in the roof rafters.
    A

    Talstar P Professional Insecticide would not be recommended for use if you need to treat wood directly.  It only sits on the surface of wood and would not penetrate.  It used to be used as a perimeter treatment to the soil in a trench around the home until non repellent products like Termidor SC were developed.  For treating wood directly, a better option would be Bora-Care, either sprayed or painted onto the rafters.  We have great guides for treating both subterranean and drywood termites that would be helpful to review as well.

    Q
    Is Talstar P safe to use with pet reptiles and a fish tank in the house?
    A

    Since aquatic life such as reptiles can be sensitive to insecticides, we do not recommend applying Talstar in any rooms while these animals are present, or in their habitats. It should be fine to use Talstar in other rooms where these animals are not kept.
