Our most popular general use product is called Talstar P Professional Insecticide. It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets. It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer. It will last for 30 outdoors and to 90 days indoors between treatments. It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use. It can be used on trees, plants, bushes, and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf-eating pests. Talstar is also available in a granule formula called Talstar PL if you prefer to use granules.
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.
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.
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 (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.
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.
No, Talstar P cannot be applied to any edible vegetation.
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.
