    Q
    Is it safe to eat herbs that were sprayed with Talstar One?
    It was not sprayed directly on but I saw spray go through the air onto this area. Should we not eat the herbs now? Would it be best to cover the herbs with plastic for future sprayings?
    A
    No, the herbs should not be eaten. Talstar is not labeled to spray on edible vegetation and the effects of eating food products contaminated by the insecticide are not known. We would definitely recommend covering the herbs in the future to prevent contamination.

    Q
    Can an Ortho Dial and Spray be used to spread Talstar P?
    Have sod webworms and need to spray 15000 sq ft lawn. If so what setting?
    A

    You can use a hose-end sprayer to apply Talstar P. You shoul use 1 oz per 1000 sq ft, and we recommend using 1-3 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft. Keep in mind that it is most important to use the correct amount of concentrate and then think of the water as a carrier, so it is better to use a bit more water than to use too little. For example, to treat half your yard, you would use 7.5 oz at a rate no higher than 1 oz per gal of water, but usually it is best to use a rate of 0.3 or 0.5 oz per gal of water with a hose-end sprayer. You can always start with a small area and test using just water to get an idea for how heavily you tend to spray and how fast you walk when spraying.

    Will Talstar stay in my soil and on my plants indefinitely?

    No, Talstar will not say on your plants or in the soil indefinitely.  When used on your lawn or ornamentals like flowers and shrubs, Talstar will last about 2 to 3 months depending on where you live and your climate.

  • Asked by Jason from Okc, Ok

    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.

    Q
    What measures do you take to ensure shelf life of Talstar P?
    A question was asked about shelf life of Talstar. The answer was 3-5 years in good conditions. What inventory controls do you use to make sure the products that are shipped are not expired or close to expiring? Do you have a standard age of product that you won't ship to consumers?
    A

    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
    If I thoroughly washed all walls and surfaces following application, is the effectiveness of Talstar reduced?
    My apartment was sprayed for cockroaches and I have a 5-year-old child that I didn't want exposed to insecticides. We waited 48 hours before returning after the spraying was done.

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is only labeled fro cracks and crevices indoors. If you washed those areas, Talstar P (Talstar One) would be less effective.

  • Asked by Doug from Nampa, Idaho
    05/21/2013
    Q
    Can I apply Talstar P with a tank sprayer and water it in with irrigation?
    I have a 1-acre yard to treat. Reading the label for high volume application, can I apply the concentrated amount of Talstar P with my tank sprayer and then water it in with irrigation to achieve the high volume application results? Thank you.
    A
    Talstar can only be applied to your yard mixed with water first. Using it the manor you described is against label usage, and you risk not only damaging your lawn by applying it directly to the yard, but also watering it in aftewards would be the equivalent of having a rain storm and it would wash the product away. You need to mix it at the proper dilution ratios for the tank size you have and spray it across the property when you know no rain is expected for at least 6-8 hours after the product has dried. If you have any other questions feel free to contact us or the manufacturer FMC at 800-321-1362.

    Q
    Will Talstar kill the geckos?
    I don't want to kill the geckos just the Mosquitos will this work?
    A
    If the lizards are sprayed directly with the Talstar P it may cause them harm. If they travel over dried deposits of the Talstar P it would be less likely to cause any issues.

  • Asked by Luis from El Paso
    06/08/2016
    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P with another insecticide like Suspend SC in one tank?
    A

    There is no valid reason to mix Suspend SC and Talstar P together.  Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Suspend SC already contains a synthetic pyrethroid, so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation.

  • Asked by Chris from Summerland Key, Florida

    Q
    Mosquito yard treatment
    I am looking for a mosquito yard treatment for a gravel based yard about 800sqft in Summerland Key Florida. We get alot of rain and the humidity is high, so standing water is abundant as well as lots of tropical plant life.
    A
    We would recommend the Mosquito control kit. Talstar will hold up in rain after it has dried. Please be sure like any other insecticide to make your application when it is not raining. Talstar is safe to apply to non-edible plant life. Please be aware that this product is harmful to aquatic life and watch for run-off areas. The Bti Dunks will work great in large bodies of standing water, as it is a larvacide.

    Insecticide for propane foggers
    I want to use a propane fogger. I want to make my own insecticide solution from Talstar etc. What product can I use in a fogger without buying the premixed for fogger material? What products would you recommend?

    We apologize but we are not aware of any product can be mixed with the Talstar in a propane fogger as Talstar is not labeled to be used in any type of fogging equipment.

    06/15/2010
    Q
    Can Talstar P and Talstar PL be used together for springtails?
    Can Talstar PL granules with 7.9% Bifenthrin be used together with Talstar P Liquid with 7.9% Bifenthrin? Is this good for springtails? We have purchased Suspend and
    A
    Talstar P and Talstar PL work very well springtails and they can be used in the same areas. Springtails can be tough to control. You must find the moisture source and correct it to get rid of springtails completely.
