    Talstar P Professional Insecticide can safely be applied in and around homes with pets as long as it is used according to the product label. Please make sure your dog is out of the area during treatment until the product has had time to dry completely. At that time your pet can resume normal activity.

    Q
    Is Talstar P safe to spray on vinyl siding?
    I intend to use it for roach control outdoors. The directions say to spray up a ways from the ground, but I don't want to discolor or damage the vinyl siding.
    A

    Talstar P will not discolor or damage vinyl siding. You can try it on a small area first to make sure if you want to, but we have never had a customer tell us they had an issue with it.

    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
    Is it safe to eat herbs that were sprayed with Talstar One?
    It was not sprayed directly on but I saw spray go through the air onto this area. Should we not eat the herbs now? Would it be best to cover the herbs with plastic for future sprayings?
    A
    No, the herbs should not be eaten. Talstar is not labeled to spray on edible vegetation and the effects of eating food products contaminated by the insecticide are not known. We would definitely recommend covering the herbs in the future to prevent contamination.

  • Asked by Cathy from Hayden, Al
    10/23/2014
    Q
    Looking for something to kill spiders, roaches, ants, etc?
    Need something to spray the outside perimeter of a building. Also need something safe to spray in an area where there are children (church nursery).
    A

    Talstar P is a great general purpose insecticide that is labeled for over 75 types of insects that can be used indoors and outdoors. Talstar P has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it. Plus, Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.

    Talstar P leaves a 30 day residual outside and a 90 day residual inside. Mix 1oz of Talstar P per gallon of water in a hand pump sprayer for best application.

    Inside the building, apply as a coarse, low pressure, crack and crevice or spot spray to areas where pests hide, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas.

    Outside the home or building, general application for crawling pests - Mix 0.5 or 1 oz. of Talstar P in one gallon of water and apply to the outside foundation of the building, approx. 3 feet up the side of the house and 2 feet out from the building. Also spray entry points into the home such as around windows, pipes, doorways, etc. For general preventative treatment, apply Talstar P once every 3 months.

  • Asked by Carol from Grand Prairie, Texas
    01/23/2016
    Q
    Is Talstar P effective for rodent mites?
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled specifically for rat mites. The easiest method to control rodent mites that have entered your home is to physically remove them with a vacuum cleaner or wipe them up with a moist cloth. Mites are not automatically killed by a vacuum cleaner so freeze the bag to prevent the mites from crawling back out.

    Locating the source and eliminating the hosts and nests is important to prevent further problems with these mites. Nests are usually located in attics, basements, or inside walls. If necessary, trap them with kill traps or glue boards. Spray the dead rat and its nest with a disinfectant.

    Removing mites€™ source (dead mice, rats, and abandoned nests) is very important. Unless you remove their source, rat mites will continue to seek human host infesting your house.

    I believe cut worms develop into millers that invade every crack and crevice every spring and most of the summer here in Wyoming.
    A
    Talstar P is one of the most commonly used products to get rid of army worms in lawns. If you need to treat edible vegetation for this pest a spinosad based product would be recommended such as Captain Jacks Deadbug Brew.

    Q
    Can an Ortho Dial and Spray be used to spread Talstar P?
    Have sod webworms and need to spray 15000 sq ft lawn. If so what setting?
    A

    You can use a hose-end sprayer to apply Talstar P. You shoul use 1 oz per 1000 sq ft, and we recommend using 1-3 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft. Keep in mind that it is most important to use the correct amount of concentrate and then think of the water as a carrier, so it is better to use a bit more water than to use too little. For example, to treat half your yard, you would use 7.5 oz at a rate no higher than 1 oz per gal of water, but usually it is best to use a rate of 0.3 or 0.5 oz per gal of water with a hose-end sprayer. You can always start with a small area and test using just water to get an idea for how heavily you tend to spray and how fast you walk when spraying.

    Q
    Which product is best for all around inside pest control in a household with dogs and cats?
    I'm looking to save a little money rather than paying an expensive quarterly contract. I would like something that I could use inside and out of the house. I would like it not to have a residue. There are so many to choose from.
    A
    We recommend Talstar P for outdoor/indoor control of most flying and crawling insects. Talsta P is safe to use around animals as long as they are out of the area while you are spraying, they can return as soon as the area is dry. Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and will not break down easily with rainfall.
