    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

    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!

    05/03/2012
    Q
    Is there a product that would kill a wide range of pests? Specifically, a lawn treatment.
    I want to treat for fleas, ticks, Mosquitos, ants & other bitey-stingy-itchy bugs.
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for use on lawns and is labeled for all of the pests you mentioned and many others. Talstar is odorless, dries clear, is gentle on plants and can be used indoors and outdoors for insect control. Be sure to read the Talstar P product label for complete usage instructions for the types of pests you are trying to control as the concentration and application placement will vary.

    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
    05/14/2018
    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.

    Q
    Can you spray Talstar P on a St Augustine lawn regardless of the temperature outside?

    Talstar P would be best applied in the early morning or late evening and not during the heat of the day to prevent burning on the grass.

  • Asked by Brandon from Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina
    06/01/2014
    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.

    Q
    I have a caterpillar eating the top of a blue spruce tree. What product do you recommend to kill them?
    The tree is about 7 feet tall and the caterpillar or worms are all over.
    A
    It is important to have the caterpillar identified so that we can make the best product recommendation for your needs. Without the exact identification we would recommend Talstar P as it is a broad spectrum insecticide that can be sprayed on blue spruce trees.

  • Asked by Allen from College Station, Tx
    04/03/2013
    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P and Permethrin SFR together in a hose end sprayer and apply at the same time?
    I already have Permethrin SFR but after reading on your Q&A site that the residual effect for mosquitos is better with Talstar P which I ordered some from you today. Just want to know if I can use both at the same time or is that overkill. Mainly using on my lawn to kill flying insects, ticks, fleas, and ants.
    A
    We do not recommend that you mix these products together as they are both synthetic pyrethroids and it would be like doubling the usage rate of each product. Just using the Talstar P for mosquito control will work very well. We recommend using 1fl oz per gallon of water for best results.

  • Asked by Milton from Landers, Ca
    09/19/2015
    Q
    Does Talstar/ Bifen IT ..mixed at 1 oz per gallon effective against dust mite as well as kill chiggers?
    I need a product that will kill chiggers and mites..including dust mites in a residence without harming my dogs.
    A

    Neither Talstar or Bifen are labeled for dust mites and would not be recommended as they are very specific to the type of mites they will kill.  Please take a moment to read our article here on "Dust Mite Control"

    Chiggers are not known to infest structures and are most likely outdoors in your yard.  While Talstar or Bifen are labeled for chiggers, Onslaught is typically the more recommended.  Onslaught is micro-encapsulated and will last a little longer on outdoor surfaces which does give it a bit of advantage over Talstar P.  Onslaught is also labeled for "mites" in general but would not be recommended for dust mites. Treatments for chiggers should begin in May and could need to continue through the summer as new chiggers move into the area. Treating the entire lawn is of little benefit because chiggers avoid direct sunlight and normally will not infest areas that are mowed or otherwise well maintained. Focus treatment on the unkempt areas of the lawn and lawn edge. You can also use Onslaught to do a barrier treatment around the outside of your home and in your crawl space to stop pests from moving indoors.

    All of the products are pet safe when used as directed.  Pets should be out of the area during treatment until dry.

  • Asked by John from San Francisco, Ca
    04/26/2018
    Q
    How does Talstar P kill aphids that are eating the new (unsprayed) growth?
    If a plant is sprayed with Talstar for aphids, does it work on the new growth that emegres after you spray? Aphids typically feed on emerging new growth.
    A

    Talstar P will only kill those that contact a treated surface.  Any new growth will not be protected and will need to be sprayed.  It can be used once a month or every 7 days at the low rate.
