Yes, Talstar P does a great job controlling Japanese Beetles. You will mix 1 oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft. Talstar P should be applied every 30 days.
We generally recommend using a pyrethroid such as Talstar P Professional Insecticide or Permethrin SFR as a preventative treatment in late spring/summer before egg hatch to protect trees. If trees are badly infested, then they should be removed and either chipped or burned.
Keep in mind that trees which become infested with bark beetles are almost always susceptible due to some other existing weakness such as drought or disease.
There is no particular time that you have to spray. Most people spray outside in early in the morning or when there is the least amount of insect activity. You will mix 1 oz of Talstar P with 1 gallon of water. That will treat 1,000 sq feet.
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.
Termidor SC around the perimeter of the home would be better than Talstar P. Termidor will have transfer effect so can help to eliminate the entire colony whereas Talstar P will only kill the ants that contact a treated surface. It can be applied twice a year or four times a year outside depending on the rate. This link can explain.
