    Q
    I'm using Talstar to treat my home for bed bugs. Is it safe to spray on furniture like the couch and mattress?
    A

    Absolutely not.  Talstar is not labeled to apply to any furniture, mattresses, or other areas that you may come into contact with.  Talstar is restricted to cracks and crevices and other areas that you would not come into contact with.  The instructions for applying Talstar for Bed Bugs are below, and you should know that even in the instructions it states that Talstar should not be used as your only protection against bed bugs.  Our most popular product for bed bugs is our bed bug kits.  

    Bedbugs: 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.

    Q
    Can I reuse a container used for weed killer (not grass) with Talstar?

    You can use the jug but you must rinse it several times and spray water through the hose and nozzle several times to make sure all of the residuals are gone.

    Q
    I want to spray my own house for bugs. I live in Oklahoma City, and I used to pay a service to do it.
    They went out of business and I was forced to use Terminix. Well they suck. I just want to keep insects out of my house, but I don't know what to buy or how to apply. I have a small ant problem in one of the bedrooms as well. Any tips? Oh, I would also like to keep the flies down in the summer. Any suggestions for that? thanks,
    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. 
    Talstar P is labeled to help control many types of flies and can be applied to your lawn as well for them.
    You may be seeing ants in the bathrooms, because they are looking for water. Since ants can be quite fickle with the foods they are eating, we recommend the Complete Ant Kit. This kit combines both a sweet and protein based bait. Please also see Ant control article.

    Talstar P is one of the most popular products that we carry and is always in stock. We make sure that the new product we receive and ship out is always the most recent. We do a constant stock rotation to insure we only have fresh stock on our shelf.

    Q
    Which product is best for all around inside pest control in a household with dogs and cats?
    I'm looking to save a little money rather than paying an expensive quarterly contract. I would like something that I could use inside and out of the house. I would like it not to have a residue. There are so many to choose from.
    A
    We recommend Talstar P for outdoor/indoor control of most flying and crawling insects. Talsta P is safe to use around animals as long as they are out of the area while you are spraying, they can return as soon as the area is dry. Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and will not break down easily with rainfall.
