    Q
    Will Talstar harm reptiles?
    A
    As long as the reptiles are out of the area while you are doing the actual application of the Talstar, it shouldn't effect them. You will most likely see a reduction in the reptile populations on your property though as you will be eliminating their food source (insects).

    Q
    Field crickets are inside my home. What is the best product for exterminating them?
    A

    You can use a product like Talstar P to treat for crickets.  Apply Talstar P as a crack and crevice or spot spray to areas where pests hide, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas. Do not use as a space spray. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices. We recommend treating the outside perimeter to help stop insect pests from coming indoors to start with. Apply Talstar P to a band of soil and vegetation 6 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to the structure. Also, treat the foundation of the structure to a height of 2 to 3 feet.

    Q
    How does Talstar P Professional Insecticide work for bed bugs?
    A

    Talstar P should be used at the highest concentration of 1 oz of Talstar per gallon of water for bedbug treatments. According to the product label: "Thorough application should be made to crack and crevices where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, box springs, inside empty dressers and clothes closets and carpet edges, high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use this product on bed linens, pillows, mattresses or clothes. Remove all clothes and other articles from dressers or clothes closets before application. Allow all treated areas to thoroughly dry before use. Not recommended for use as sole protection against bedbugs. If evidence of bedbugs is found in/on mattresses, use products approved for this use." As you can see the Talstar P  manufacturers do not recommend that you use Talstar P by itself to get rid of bedbugs. The other products that you will need to use in combination with the Talstar P to effectively treat for bedbugs are all included in our Bedbug Kits.   Please take a few moments to review our article,' How to Get Rid of Bedbugs' (that also includes videos) for more information on treating bedbugs.

    We have a lake house and on one side we have woods that are always damp and has puddles etc. Can we use Talstar one on these woods?

    No, Talstar P (Talstar One) is not labeled for use around lakes and/or water ways, as it would be harm to the marine life.  You would need to use Essentria IC3 for that type of application.

    Q
    Can Talstar safely be removed from furniture?
    I have a little rocker for my son outside that I want to move indoors but the pest control guy sprayed Talstar all over it. Is there a safe way to wash it off? Will it hurt my son? Should we re-stain it? Will Talstar end up on my carpet?
    A
    Talstar breaks down in about 3-4 weeks when it is exposed to outdoor elements. After 3-4 weeks has passed you can thoroughly scrub the chair with soap and water and rinse with copious amounts of water and bring the chair inside for your son to use. Talstar is a water based product and it will not hurt your carpet. Talstar is even labeled for indoor use but it is restricted to cracks and crevices.

    Q
    what can i use for inside and outside for general insect kill
    I am currently on a quarterly spray but would like to do my own to save me money ,I would like to known what all in one product I could mix and apply that would kill most common insects and bugs that won't pets or leave a white residue on things. Also I would like mouse blocks that can be used in boxes and also just thrown under the house . Please show what your best options are in a concentrate to mix and use on a quarterly basis. Thanks
    A

    Talstar P is labeled for over 75 types of insects and our most popular insecticide for general pest control. Talstar P has a residual of 30 days outside (perimeter or broadcast spray) and 90 days inside the home(crack and crevice) Talstar One is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.

    For Mice control, depending on the level of infestation we recommend the Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Stations Case(12 Stations) with Fastrac Blox. These stations hold 1 bait blox and can be placed in corners where mice travel. Fastrac is a quick knockdown rodenticide with a Stop feed action after consuming lethal dose, usually within 12-48 hours.

    If you are needing a larger bait station, we recommend the Protecta Mouse Bait Station that can hold up to 4 standard size blox. These would work better for you under the home.
