    Q
    I sprayed this on my Meyer Lemon 2 weeks before it bloomed. Do I need to remove fruit?
    It didn't fruit until a couple weeks after spraying. I know this is not systemic and its not suppose to be absorbed into the plant so is there any harm in eating my lemons. I have since bought captian jacks with spinosad for this tree but Im wondering if I need to discard the fruit already on it.
    A
    Talstar P is not labeled to be used on edible plants. The manufacturer does recommend that you discard any fruit from the tree for this growing season if the tree was sprayed with Talstar P.

    Q
    Can I mix this with CyperWP for outside use around the house
    Will mixing bifenthrin with the cypermethrin degrade eithers efficiency or activity?
    A
    These products should not be mixed together. There is no valid reason to mix Cyper WP and Talstar P together.  Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Cyper WP 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.

    Q
    I used Talstar P Professional Insecticide to control fleas in my yard. I put K9 Advantix on my dogs but I still have a problem. Should I use an IGR?
    A

    Yes, although Talstar P Professional Insecticide will kill fleas, you still need to incorporate an IGR like Tekko Pro to break down the reproductive cycle. You can apply both at the same time.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar on elm trees as a systemic?
    A
    Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and as such will not work as a systemic treatment. You will need to use a product such as Criterion which is a systemic insecticide to treat your elm trees.

    Q
    Mosquitoes, flies, and spiders are the problem in my yard, is there one product I can spray for all 3 pests?
    A

    Talstar P Professional Insecticide is a great safe product for general pest control both in and around the home. It dries clear, has no odor, is non-staining and non-irritating and can be used on lawns, bushes, ornamentals, trees and around the foundation of the home, as well as entry points like windows and doors. It will control over 100 different insects, including mosquitoes, flies, and spiders. It will typically last 30-90 days outdoors and at least 90 indoors along baseboards and cracks and crevices. Its safe for children and pets once dry and is very cost effective.

    Q
    Will Talstar P keep flies off my house?
    One side of our house becomes absolutely covered in flies every day during the summer, leaving fly specks all over the siding.
    A

    Talstar P can be used to help control cluster flies indoors and outdoors. If the cluster flies have already made their way indoors, they will be harder to control because they usually hide in a wall void or other inaccessible area and are only visible when the house warms up. If the cluster flies are in an attic or drop ceiling or other dark area, a fly light would do a great job controlling the population. Using small fly lights such as the Fly Web in the house would also help to catch the flies. Spray Talstar P directly on baseboards, window frames, door frames, and places where utilities (pipes, wires, cables) enter in to the building and any other crack, crevice or gap where insects can enter.

  • Asked by Omar from Miami, Fl
    08/10/2015
    Q
    Would mixing Talstar P with Tengard work for longer lasting residual and knockdown?
    A

    MIxing Tengard with Talstar will not make it last any longer and is not actually recommended.  Mixing 2 insecticides together can contaminate an area making it highly repellent where insects will avoid it and neither can do their job of killing the insects.  If you want a faster knockdown product, you can add something like Exciter.  If you want a longer residual you should use something like Suspend Polyzone which can last up to 90 days on outside surfaces.

    Q
    What can I do about a ladybug infestation already inside my home?
    A
    Talstar P applications to cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room, door frames, window frames and other areas where you see ladybugs emerging will help. You can also use a Fly Web light  to capture these nuisance insects as they seem to be attracted to light as well.

  • Asked by Clarke from Barbados
    09/10/2014
    Q
    Should Talstar PL be used in an enclosed office with no windows, just air condition vents?
    A

    When applying Talstar P, as long as the area has had time to dry, there should not be any concern. Rooms should remain vacant until the product has had time to dry. Talstar P is ok to use as crack and crevice treatment along baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas.

    Q
    What do most pest control companies use for general spraying?
    A
    Our most popular general use product is called Talstar. 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 60 to 90 days outside in between treatments. It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and 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.

  • Asked by James from Stuart, Florida
    04/15/2013
    Q
    Will Talstar P control hoosehold casebearers (Phereoeca uterella)?
    A
    When the larva or the moths make contact with areas that have been treated with Talstar P or Demand CS they will be killed by the dry residual. They must contact the treated area for any products to work. Typically a crack and crevice application of either product, lots of cleaning under furniture, appliances and under cabinets and lots of vacuuming will help eliminate these pests. Any wool items should be examined for damage and cleaned if needed.

    Q
    Is Talstar P effective for fleas indoor and outdoors?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for the treatment of fleas outdoors only. It can only be applied to indoor cracks and crevices. Fleas will be on the open floor surfaces so it is important to apply a product such as Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR to those surfaces indoors for eradication.

    Q
    Is there any benefit to mixing Talstar one with Essentria IC3
    I like the smell of the IC3 eccentra . I also think it works very well just doesn't last long
    A
    You would not want to mix IC3 with Talstar. IC3 could make Talstar have a repellency to it that you do not want. You want the insect to travel through the treated areas and kill them.

  • Asked by Josh from Ga
    05/17/2017
    Q
    Can I use Talstar P in a hose end applicator to treat gnats or midges?
    We have a serious problem with gnats or midges.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) can be dispersed in a hose end applicator, hand pump or backpack sprayer for gnats/midges in the lawn. It is also great for treating spiders, centipedes, fire ants and many other insects. We recommend applying 1 oz per gallon of water  per 1,000 sq ft as a broadcast and the same rate per mound for drenching for fire ants. NyGuard IGR can be added to the Talstar P and water mix for impeding the reproductive cycle for listed pests. Please take a few minutes to review our treatment article/videos for other tips on a successful eradication program. Please let us know if you need anything else.
