    Q
    Is there a way to deter horse flies? We get alot of them by our pool.
    A
    Horseflies and many other species of biting flies tend to develop on the edge of bodies of water and since they are strong fliers these breeding areas can be near or far which makes finding the source next to impossible. You can apply a product such as Talstar P around the pool area and flies that land on the treated areas will be eliminated. Using Talstar will give some relief but since these flies can fly over treated areas it can be tough to get complete control. Relief should be on the way soon however as horsefly season is usually on 3-6 weeks long

    Q
    Is Bifenthrin (Talstar) or a different product better suited for rodent/bird mites?
    After a month of getting mysterious bites on our bodies, we found mites in the bathroom. Not a huge infestation but 8-10 here and there. An entomologist identified the mite as most likely rodent/bird mites. We have yet to find the source of the mites as no nests or burrows have been found by us or an exterminator. He suggested using bifenthrin and diatomaceous earth to control the problem. I have yet to use bifenthrin. I sealed up the cracks and gaps in the bathroom as best I could and laid down diatomaceous earth around the toilet. I saw fewer mites after this but they continue to appear especially on the toilet. Should I go ahead and try bifenthrin or is there another product better suited for this siutation?
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled for nor recommended for bird mites. Onslaught Insecticide would be a better option and is labeled for mites in general.

    Q
    Should I use Talstar or Termidor for carpenter ants?
    I have carpenter ants on the exterior of my house. I've seen them come out from under the cedar shake. Which product would be best to get red of these and how long does each product last? How long before rain should these products be applied?
    A

    Termidor SC around the perimeter of the home would be better than Talstar P.  Termidor will have transfer effect so can help to eliminate the entire colony whereas Talstar P will only kill the ants that contact a treated surface.  It can be applied twice a year or four times a year outside depending on the rate. This link can explain.

    Q
    How to use Talstar P on potted plants indoors?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is diluted with water and then poured onto the soil and sprayed onto the plant itself. We recommend starting with letting the soil dry out between watering as this offers the fastest control in most cases. Please provide the targeted pest for additional tips on treatment.

  • Asked by Sandra from Las Vegas
    06/03/2018
    Q
    How much Talstar P do I need to use?
    If 1 diluted gallon covers 1000 square feet, and my house is 4500 square feet with guest house of 2000 square feet on 1.25 acre of land: How much diluted product would be needed to spray both houses and the land? Do I spray inside only on the perimeter of each room and outside around perimeter of houses? Do I spray all of the land area or only in the perimeter of the lot?
    A

    Talstar P is mixed at the rate of 0.5 to 1.0 fl oz per gallon of water, so a gallon of the Talstar will make about 128 to 256 gallons of solution and will  last up to 90 days depending on where it is applied.  Each finished gallon of solution covers approx 1000 sq. ft.  Inside applications are limited to just cracks and crevices, along baseboards etc.  Outside you would apply 2 to 3 feet up and out around the home, around window and door frames, and other potential entry points.  You can choose to spray the lawn for further protection or just around the perimeter.  Please refer to the product label for complete instructions on any target pest.

    Q
    Can Talstar P be used around citrus trees?
    A
    Talstar P is not labeld for use on or around any edible vegetation including vegetable gardens and fruit and nut trees. You would need to stay at least 10 feet away from the drip line and roots of the tree or use a different product. If you let us know what insect you are looking to treat for, we can make a better recommendation specific to your needs.

    Q
    Difference between Talstar P and Dominion 2L?
    What is the difference between this product and Dominion 2L? How long does it take to kill an insect that comes in contact with this?
    A

    Talstar P is a great general use insecticide that can be used both inside and outside for over 75 different pests.  It only kills the insects that contact a treated surface. Dominion 2L is a non repellent termiticide that can also be used a systemic insecticide for the listed pests.  Dominion will help to eliminate more than just want contacts a treated surface or treated soil, social insects will crawl over the product without detecting it, and spread it to each other by touch and food sharing, eventually eliminating the entire infestation.

    How long it takes the insects to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the insect and type of insect as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P in my attic?
    I have wasps and spiders in my attic getting into my house. Can I spray this in the attic? If so, where can I spray just the rafters or the insulation too? And what do I do about the electrical wires, pipes, and recessed lights in the attic?
    A
    You can use Talstar P in your attic in all of the cracks and crevices for insect control. If you have a lot of exposed electrical elements you may want to consider using a dust insecticide instead of the Talstar P in your attic. Dusts like Evergreen dust and Tempo dust will last a lot longer than liquid insecticides and they can be used around the electrical elements you described without worry of shock or shorting out the device.

    Q
    Best product for mosquitoes?
    I live in Dallas area. What is best suitable for mosquitoes and common summer yard pest control?
    A
    Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using a one gallon hand pump 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.
