According to the Talstar P product label:
Chinch Bugs infest the base of grass plants and are often found in the thatch layer. Irrigation of the grass area before treatment will optimize the penetration of the insecticide to the area where the chinch bugs are located. Use higher volume applications if the thatch layer is excessive or if a relatively long
mowing height is being maintained. Chinch Bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the higher application rates (Up to 1 fluid oz. per 1000 square feet) may be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the middle of the summer.

Talstar P (Talstar One) is not an instant kill for roaches so it will take time to eliminate them with the product and an IGR. The roaches also have to come in contact with the area that is treated with Talstar P. If you are not seeing success with this product and have been using it for a while, we would recommend using a product with a different active ingredient, such as Demand CS. We would also recommend adding a roach bait gel to your treatment program, if you are not already using one. Please see our Roach Treatment Guide for more information and tips.
Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide that also has a transfer effect and is especially useful for insects that are social or extra sensitive like ants, roaches or bedbugs. Talstar P on the other hand will have a faster knockdown rate and is a bit more versatile as it can be used in more areas and for a wider variety of insects. When trying to decide which insecticide to use you need to know: 1. What are you trying to eliminate? 2. What areas need to be treated? After you answer those questions, read the product labels to make sure the pest and the treatment area are both listed. If you still need help deciding you can call us at 866-581-7378.
