    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.

    Q
    Which spray product should I use? I want to replace my pest control service.
    I don't have a insect problem. It's more of a preventative service every 6 months.

    By far our most popular product is Talstar.  It is the most popular product used by professional companies and by our customers.  It is labeled for almost any insect you would have a problem with, is safe to use both outdoors and indoors, it is odorless and can also be used on your lawn, trees, and shrubs.  Take a moment to read some of the customer reviews on the Talstar page and you will feel sure that Talstar is the right product for you.  Please let us know if you have any further questions.

  • 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.

    Q
    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?
    A
    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.

    Q
    What is the best and longest lasting mosquito product?
    I live in Southwest Louisiana and we have had a lot of rain lately thus a bad outbreak of the little bloodsuckers. I need a product that is not going to disappear after the first rainfall?
    A

    Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using any hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer.  The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio you are trying to provide relief at.  It should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well which is where the mosquitoes hang out.  It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.  Best of all it will not harm any birds in the area.

    Q
    What product is best for killing ticks outside?
    A

    Talstar P mixed with an Insect Growth regulator such as Nyguard IGR would be a good choice for tick control. Talstar P would work to kill ticks that come into contact with treated surfaces while the Nyguard would work to help stop juvenile ticks from reaching sexual maturity. We recommend using  the highest usage rate of 1 oz Talstar  and 1 oz of Nyguard IGR per gallon of water.

  • Asked by Marilyn
    03/16/2010
    Q
    Does Talstar P work on bed bugs? And if so, how often should one apply your product?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for bed bugs, but the Talstar label itself says it should not be used as the only product to get rid of a bed bug problem.  Typically, one product will not do the job.  That's why we offer our Bed Bug Kits, which have multiple products that are used in different areas in the bedroom and that do different things.  The kit is exactly the products that a professional company would use and charge you hundreds of dollars to apply.  All of our kits come with full instructions on where to apply each product.  We make it easy as possible for you to treat your own bed bug problem, and our kits have a very high success rate when used correctly.

  • Asked by R from Indianapolis, In

    Q
    Is Talstar as safe as the pyrethrum products claim to be?
    Would like to use safer products now that we have kiddos.
    A
    Talstar P can be safely used around pets and children as long as you follow the label instructions; all pets and children need to be out of the area while application is being made and they can return as soon as the application is dry. Talstar is none irratating if it touches the skin, but is not recommended to be around until it has dried. Talstar will not harm babies if the product label is followed. Unless other wise noted, the pesticides on our website are safe to use in a home with children. As with any product, it is important to follow the label instructions and precautions to ensure safety. Talstar P is non-irritating, non-staining and contains no odorous or plant-damaging solvents. It's even labeled for food-handling area.

  • Asked by Susan
    07/09/2011
    Q
    My leylands are infested with bagworms. I bought Talstar and sprayed in late June early July.
    It spit rain about 4 hrs after spraying and then poured about 2 days after. Should I retreat or wait a month or so?
    A
    Talstar P only needs an hour or two to dry, and once it is dry it does not matter if it rains 2 hours later or 2 weeks later, it should hold up the same once dry.  So our answer is, you do not need to re-treat just yet.  However, it would not, or should not anyways, hurt the tree if you wanted to apply a second application now that is not mixed as strong for good measure.
