    I've been using Talstar-P for outdoor perimeter and a bit of indoor pest control and would like to use something stronger and longer acting as we're about to enter rainy and buggy season in Florida. Thanks!

    Sure we would recommend to switch it up to Suspend Polyzone.  Suspend Polyzone features a proprietary polymer layer that protects the active ingredient from weather, irrigation and mechanical abrasion. This controlled release formulation, which resists erosion, ensures your treatment will continue to control targeted pests for up to 90 days outdoors

    Q
    What is the best method to kill fire ant mounds using Talstar P?
    A

    Yes, Talstar P can be used for fire ant control in the type of sprayer you described, but you will also need to do mound drenching. According to the Talstar P product label, "Fire Ant Mound control is optimized by combining broadcast applications that will control foraging workers and newly mated fly-in queens with mound drenches that will control existing colonies. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application or use a high volume application. Apply broadcast treatments at 0.5 to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Use enough finished volume to penetrate thatch or sod. Treat mounds by applying 1 oz of Talstar P per mound in 1 to 2 gallons water by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat 3 feet out around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12”. Treat mounds with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 - 80F) or in early morning or late evening hours."

    Q
    What to use for ground bees?
    what to use for ground bees?
    A
    Ground bees, also known as digger bees, can be very difficult to control no matter what product you use and they most likely will come back to your property year after year unless you do your part to alter your property to make it unfavorable to the bees. Ground bees prefer dry soils with thin grasses so irrigating the area frequently and correcting any issue that causes your grass to be thin will help deter the bees from nesting. In areas where you do not have grass, a layer of mulch will help deter the bees from nesting. Ground bees are solitary bees and are not very aggressive and are known to be a beneficial insect which is why you will not find any products specifically labeled for this type of bee. Talstar P can help provide some level of control but it will not get rid of all of the ground bees on your property. You should use Talstar P at a 1 oz of product to 1 gallon of water for a 1,000 sq ft area ratio. This will give you the fastest knockdown and the longest lasting residual. Talstar P does not offer an instant knockdown but will kill insects that come into contact with treated areas over a short period of time.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P in garden for bug control on plants ?
    A
    Talstar cannot be used directly on vegetables or fruits that are going to be consumed. We do carry several products that can be used on edible vegetation such as Sevin and Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor 10%. Always read the product label of the product you select to make sure it is labeled for the plant you want to spray and for the pest you are trying to eliminate. The product labels are available for each product on our site and you can see the product label links on each individual product page

    Q
    My puppy likes to pull out grass by the mouthful, then chew on it. Is Talstar P (Talstar One) safe for this?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) after dilution is only strong enough to kill small insects. Your puppy would have to eat loads of treated grass for Talstar it to harm it. Be sure to keep the puppy out of the treated area until dried.

    Q
    Can Talstar P be used with Archer IGR?
    I would like ot use pet and child safe products that are also broad spectrum and Archer IGR and Talstar P seem to fit the bill. I would like to use both an IGR and adulticide so as to get as much as possible at all stages of development. Is Talstar P and Archer IGR a good combination? Could they maybe just be used on the ame areas a couple opf weeks apart, maybe spraying first with Archer IGR and then coming back and spraying with Talstar?
    A
    Talstar P and Archer IGR can be mixed into the same gallon of water so you only have to spray once. Archer can be mixed with most insecticides in this way.

    Q
    How much Talstar P do I use to make 1 gallon of solution to treat bedbugs?
    I'm trying to rid my home of bed bugs.
    A

    Use a 0.06% dilution of Talstar P (1 fluid oz. per gallon of water) for bedbug control. A 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 such as Bedlam aerosol and Protect-A-Bed mattress, boxspring and pillow encasements

    Q
    Will TalstarPro kill a St. Augustine lawn if more than 1oz is applied when treating for Chinch bugs?
    When using the Chapin wet/dry sprayer much more of the solution was sprayed than the directions suggested and we now have 3.5oz of TalstarPro on just over 500sqft of lawn. We followed instructions step by step, but apparently still made and error somewhere.
    A

    While we do not recommend to apply Talstar P (Talstar One) at a higher rate than 1oz, your lawn should be just fine. Please keep in mind that it's also recommended to apply during cooler times of the day.

  • Asked by Ben from Gaston, Sc
    09/22/2014
    Q
    What causes could there be for ants coming back within a week?
    I live in central SC with sandy soil. Talastar kills the ants and other insects well, but I have new mounds in as little as 5-7 days. I have broadcast sprayed, treated mounds at a rate of 1 oz, per gallon and it doesn't seem to have the lasting effect of 3-4 months like advertised.
    A
    Ant bait products are the best solution for effective argentine ant control and small black ant control. Ant baits will hit the colony at the source, whereas insecticide sprays such as Talstar P will only cause stress on the colony, causing it to split into a larger number of sub-colonies, making the infestation worse. We would recommend using our Complete Ant Kit which comes with both a sugar based bait as well as a protein based bait to ensure bait acceptance regardless of what the ants are lacking nutritionally. We would also like you to read over our staff written article, How To Get Rid of Argentine Ants to learn more.

    Q
    What is the best product to use around my home for general pest control?
    I had a professional pest control company that I no longer use. They only used an outside barrier spray, but never had insects, except maybe a few ants. I just recently have seen some very small bugs in my house on occasion. Do you have a good barrier bug control. I am a regular customer of you folks. Thank you!
    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.

    Q
    Can I mop the floors after spraying my house with Talstar P (Talstar One)?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One)  is labeled to be applied to cracks and crevices indoors. Mopping should not be an issue, as Talstar is not labeled to be applied as a broadcast over the floor. If you were to mop along the edges of the wall where Talstar was applied, it would take it up.

    Q
    I accidentally mixed 2 oz of Talstar to 1 gallon of water. Will that make the product less effective?
    A

    It should not harm anything to apply Talstar at this rate one time. We recommend that you wait for 30 days outside (90 days inside) to reapply at the rate of 0.5-1 oz per gallon of water.
