    Q
    Grasshoppers, plague proportions, what's the recommended product?
    I would like to use a hose end sprayer with the water hose. I see the video of a gallon jug - being used only around the edges and crevises. I've got to cover the entire ground.
    A
    You can use Talstar P to cover non fruit bearing trees, lawns, bushes, shrubs and other areas excluding edible vegetation. Talstar P can be used in a hose end sprayer and should be diluted 1 fl oz per gallon of water for the fastest knockdown and the longest lasting residual for grasshopper control.

    Q
    What is the best product to treat 1 acre for mosquitoes, ticks and flea control that I can do myself?
    A

    An insecticide like Talstar P would be a great option for you for all of these pests, along with many others.  It is recommended to also use an insect growth regulator (IGR) like Archer IGR for fleas and ticks to stop them from reproducing.  Both of these products can be applied with a hand pump sprayer.  You may also want to look over our Pest Prevention Guide for more information.

    Q
    What is the best outside treatment for my centipede problem?
    Of all the products that say they kill centipedes which works best for my whole yard. I have pest control come to treat inside my house. Im still getting tons of centipedes entering the house eventually dying.However my yard and driveway and front entrance is full of them where we do not treat I'm trying to take control of these darn things from entering the house. I figure now I need to treat our whole property. So which is the best product you sell.
    A

    Talstar P would be a good choice to use around the inside and outside of your home to eliminate centipedes. Indoors you can apply Talstar P to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, and any other place where the insects can gain entry. Outdoors you should apply the product to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, around the bottom of the foundation and out onto the ground directly around the foundation. You can also limit favorable conditions that the centipedes need to thrive. 

    Remove Favorabe Conditions

    • Fix leaky faucets or pipes and dry up wet or damp areas where centipedes thrive
    • Remove outdoor harborages near the home that hold moisture (compost, wood, or leaf piles, etc).
    • Store firewood off the ground at least 20 feet away from the home
    • Water your lawn in the morning so that it will be dry by afternoon
    • Do not over mulch flower beds, since soggy mulch is an ideal harborage for centipedes

    Q
    How much Talstar would it take just to make a quart mixture in a spray bottle?
    A
    We do not recommend that you use a regular squirt bottle for Talstar applications because the application will not be even. That being said, you will mix 1/4 fl oz of Talstar P per quart of water for most applications.

    Q
    If I dilute Talstar 7.9, 1oz in a gallon of water, what % of bifenthrin will I now have?
    The store brand says 0.3% bifenthrin in a quart hose sprayer bottle.By the time this is diluted with the water from the hose what % am I using? I would like to triple the strength I am getting now with the store product.In other words ,how much 7.9% should go into the quart hose sprayer bottle to give me a .9%solution ?What would the final % be that I would be applying?
    A
    If you mix 1 oz of Talstar P per gallon of water you will be using a 0.06% solution. The Talstar P product label says not to use a higher concentration that the 0.06% solution and we do not recommend that you do so. We do not have any information on the store brand product that you used so we are not sure what the dilution usage rate would be on that product. Each hose end sprayer is different  in the way that it is used but if you are following the directions and use 1 oz of product per gallon of water then the end usage rate will be 0.06%.

    Q
    can you mix talstar pro with demon wp?
    Do the insecticides loose their potency if you mix 3 scoops of demon EP and 2 ounces of talstar pro in 1 1/4 gallons of water? For indoor use
    A
    These products should not be mixed together. There is no valid reason to mix Demon WP and Talstar P together.  Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Demon WP 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.

    Q
    What type of face mask can I use to apply Talstar P.
    A

    A mask is not required to apply Talstar P if you are applying in a well-venitlated area.  If you are applying in a small, confined space with poor ventilation, you can use something like the N95 Valved Respirator Mask.  Please be advised that we are only able to ship within the U.S. at this time.

  • Asked by Rox from Seattle,wa
    03/13/2015
    Q
    Does Talstar kill fleas, bedbugs, and cockroach eggs?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for fleas, bedbugs, and roaches. However, Talstar P will not kill roach eggs and should only be used outdoors for fleas, NOT indoor flea control. Fleas, bedbugs, and roaches are all hard to control insects and we would recommend a targeted treatment plan to ensure complete erradication. Please email us or give us a call at 866-581-7378 so that we may get additional information regarding your circumstances and make a proper, educated recommendation regarding products and treatments. We hope to hear from you soon!

    Talstar P is labeled for use on lawns and is labeled for all of the pests you mentioned and many others.

    Q
    I have a great crop of moss in my shaded back yard. Will Talstar eliminate it?
    A
    Talstar is an insecticide only and will not have any effect on moss. Burnout Weed and Grass Killer is a non-selective herbicide that is labeled to control moss. You should spray this product only on the moss and avoid getting it on desirable plants.

  • Asked by Lori from Yakima

    Q
    I have a wasp and hornet Apocalypse going on out here at our house! Will this do the job at getting them gone?
    Wasps Bees Hornets
    A

    Talstar will kill any wasp, bee, or hornet that comes into contact with a treated area.  Keep in mind that this is not a contact kill product, so it can take up to 24 hours for an insect to die after contacting a treated surface.  You can also use a product like Wasp Freeze as a contact kill.  If you know where any of the nests are located, you can use Wasp Freeze to treat those directly as well.  It is best to apply any insecticides in the early morning or evening when the wasps/bees/hornets are least active.

  • Asked by Roger
    05/23/2011
    Q
    For large yard, should I have a blower to apply Talstar P?
    I have a large yard, over 15000 square feet, surrounded by large trees/woods. I would need to treat ground cover, bushes/shrubs, and also the perimeter of the property going into the woods and up into the trees several feet. Is the solo mister/blower or the Stihl mister/blower the best way or is a hand sprayer adequate or preferred?
    A
    A hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer would be the preferred method of application. For that large of an area a backpack sprayer would be the best method.  We carry all types and we even have one that is battery powered that is very popular and makes it very easy to apply the product.

  • Asked by Brandon from Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina

    Q
    Will your product get rid of moles?
    A friend told me about this product for moles, but I didn't see moles mentioned.
    A
    Talstar P is labled to control grubs which will in turn cause moles to go elsewhere because their food source has been eliminated but Talstar P does not kill moles. This type of treatment can take some time to see results so we would recommend that you take a look at our Mole Control Page.
