    Q
    Can Talstar P be used around fresh water? I want to control the spiders and webs on my dock.
    A

    No, Talstar is not labeled for use around water as it is highly toxic to fish and other aquatic life. We recommend using EcoVia EC, which is labeled for use on a wide range of flying and crawling insects and will not harm aquatic life.

    Q
    Does Talstar P treat clothing?
    Can I spray my horse's fly sheets with Talstar in the evenings to protect them from mosquitos? I understand I'd have to let it dry before putting them on the horse.
    A
    Talstar is not labeled for clothing and therefore would not be safe for application to the sheets.

    Q
    Will Talstar kill grain mites and is it toxic to cattle if it gets in their feed?
    A

    Talstar is not labeled to treat for grain mites. It would be best to discard if the feed and get new feed. We are not aware of a product that can safely be applied to grains that are intended for feeding purposes. Please also contact your Cooperative Extension office for more treatment options in your area.

    Q
    I bought, Archer IGR, Nygard IGR and Talstar P. Can I mix these all together?
    A

    Depending on what you are treating for, you may definitely use the Talstar P and your choice of IGR with it. It is not necessary for you to mix two IGR's with the Talstar P.  Either NyGuard or Archer IGR and Talstar can be mixed into the same gallon of water and sprayed for control of Fleas, Stored Product Pests, listed Roaches (German, Asian, and Brown-banded), Crickets, Litter Beetles, and Flying Insects.

    Q
    Does Talstar kill pantry moths?
    A

    When the larva or the moths make contact with areas that have been treated with Talstar P they will be killed by the dry residual. They must contact the treated area for any product to work. Typically a crack and crevice application and lots of cleaning and vacuuming will help eliminate these pests.  We actually have a pantry pest kit put together which includes six Pro-Pest Pheronet traps for catching pantry moths, plus a 14 oz. can of D-Force Residual Aerosol with a crevice tool (straw) for spraying in cracks and crevices around shelves and walls to kill pantry pest larvae in harborage areas.  You can learn more about pantry moths by reading our Pantry Moth Control Articles

    Q
    What is a good General pest control product?
    Looking for a product to help with general pests, spiders, ants, we have scorpions where we live, roaches...
    A
    Talstar P 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-irritaing 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 and 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
    Wasps in fascia of my home. Sprays don't work, should I fumigate attic? what product?
    A
    If you know where the nests are you can apply Tempo 1% dust. We recommned that you use a hand duster and apply a dust such as Tempo dust to the holes where the wasps are going in and out. The dust will help eliminate the wasps in the nest and any other wasps returning to the nest. Tempo dust will stay effective for several months as long as it is dry. We are not aware of a product that would eliminate the wasp pheromone to help stop wasps from returning to a particular area.  After dusting in the void where the wasps have a built a nest you can try spraying the siding with a product such as Talstar P. You can spray once a month and any wasp that lands on treated areas will be eliminated within about 24 hours which should stop new wasps from being able to build a nest.

  • Asked by Jim from United States
    05/12/2015
    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P with Image in a single application?
    A
    Talstar P can be mixed with Image, if you do the tank mix test.  Any tank mixture which has not been previously tested should be prepared on a small scale (pint or quart jar), using the proper proportions of pesticides and water to ensure the physical compatibility of the mixture. The following procedure is recommended for preparation of a new tank mix, unless specified otherwise in label directions: (1) Add wettable powders to tank water, (2) Agitate, (3) Add liquids and flowables, (4) Agitate, (5) Add emulsifiable concentrates, and (6) Agitate. If a mixture is found to be incompatible following this the volume of water. Note: If the tank-mixture is found to be compatible after increasing the amount of water, then the sprayer will need to be recalibrated for a higher volume application. Do not allow the mixture to stand over night.

  • Asked by Heidi from Pensacola, Florida

    Q
    What is the best way to treat fire ants using Talstar P?
    A

    According to the Talstar P product label, "Fire Ant Mound control is optimized by combining broadcast applications that will control foraging workers and newly mated fly-in queens with mound drenches that will control existing colonies. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application or use a high volume application. Apply broadcast treatments at 0.5 to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Use enough finished volume to penetrate thatch or sod. Treat mounds by applying 1 oz of Talstar P per mound in 1 to 2 gallons water by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat 3 feet out around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12”. Treat mounds with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 - 80 degrees) or in early morning or late evening hours."

    Q
    Best treatment for small Black ants and centipedes?
    I have children and a dog, what would you recommend for small black ants and centipedes? Thank you!

    We would recommend our most popular insecticide, Talstar.  It is a very safe product to use around children and pets and is widely used by professional companies every day in thousands of homes across the country.  It is odorless, can be used indoors and outdoors and it is labeled for over 80 different insects.  You would apply it using a one gallon hand pump sprayer

    Q
    Is there a Talstar granule product that can be used for termite treatments?
    I like using granular applications. Is Talstar P the only one for termites?
    A
    Talstar Granules are not labeled for termites and would most likely not penetrate deeply enough in the soil to treat for termites. The only other granule product that can be used for termites is the Premise Granule but these granules are only for spot treating an active infestation and they do not offer any long lasting residual control. Currently non-repellent insecticides such as Termidor SC and Dominion 2L are the preferred products for termite treatments. Non-repellent insecticides cannot be avoided by termites because they cannot tell that it is there. The exposed termites then remain unaffected for a few days, before sudden death occurs. In the meantime, the exposed termites are able to spread the non-repellent chemical to unexposed termites by physical contact when they feed or groom the other termites, resulting in a domino death effect which wipes out more of the colony.

    Q
    Will Talstar harm auto paint?
    A
    Talstar is a waterbased product and will not usually harm any surface that would not be harmed by water alone. Having said that, Talstar has not been tested on auto paint as it is not labeled for this type of application.

    Q
    Can I spray Talstar directly onto the foliage of flowering plants for Japanese beetles?
    A

    Yes, Talstar P Professional Insecticide can be applied to any bushes, shrubs, trees, landscaped areas as well as flowering plants. However, you should minimize the spray on the actual flowering plants as you do not want it to expose the product to any bees that help with pollination. It is recommended that you spray when pollinators are not active, either in the early morning or late evening.

    Q
    How do I get rid of what looks to be springtails in my tub and back door?
    A
    Please check out our article "How to get Rid of Springtails" for a play by play for treating springtails. You REALLY want to make sure you are using a residual insecticide like Talstar P along the cracks and crevices, paying close attention to areas that may contain moisture. You also want to use a dust like Delta dust in wall voids.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P in a misting system?
    I would like to use Talstar P in a misting system that sprays once a day. Is this possible? What would the recommended dosage be?
    A

    Talstar P cannot be applied in a misting system.  It can only be applied using a hand held pump sprayer, backpack sprayer, hose end sprayer, or a mist blower.  We do carry misting system concentrates that you can use instead.

    Q
    Can I use sticky boards outside for a million different insects
    A

    Glueboards would not be used outside as they are made with cardboard and glue that would not hold up to the eliminates.  Instead they would be used inside for monitoring and trapping and you can use a residual product such as Talstar P around the perimeter of the home for general pest control.
