    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.

    Q
    What kind of mask should I use when spraying Talstar P
    A

    According to the Talstar P product label "all pesticide handlers must wear a respiratory protection device when working in a non-ventilated space." Respiratory devices are not required for well ventilated spaces or outdoor applications. The Talstar P product label also says "all applicators should wear longsleeved shirt and long pants, socks, shoes and chemical-resistant gloves."

    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.

    Q
    What is the best product for eliminating or at least reducing army cut worms?
    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.

  • Asked by Loren from Galesburg, Il
    04/21/2018
    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
    What measures do you take to ensure shelf life of Talstar P?
    A question was asked about shelf life of Talstar. The answer was 3-5 years in good conditions. What inventory controls do you use to make sure the products that are shipped are not expired or close to expiring? Do you have a standard age of product that you won't ship to consumers?
    A

    Talstar P is one of the most popular products that we carry and is always in stock. We make sure that the new product we receive and ship out is always the most recent. We do a constant stock rotation to insure we only have fresh stock on our shelf.

    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.

An acre is 43,650 sq ft and you will need anywhere from a 1/4 fl oz - 1 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft area.

    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 Frank from Vero Beach, Florida

    Q
    What is good for camel spiders in central Colorado?
    I am looking for a spray to do the perimeter and possibly the baseboards for camel spiders. I live in Florida but do property management in CO. Hopefully something cheaper then Termidor.
    A

    Camel spiders certainly look scary but are basically harmless. You can treat the exterior and interior of structures if needed with a product such as Talstar P. Talstar works well for spiders, scorpions and other invading pests. We usually would not recommend Termidor for spider control as it is a very slow acting insecticide.

  • Asked by Caddo
    05/02/2011
    Q
    Can Cy-Kick CS be mixed with Talstar P for mosquito control?
    If so how much of each product per gallon to treat 1000 sqft? If not Talstar what can be mixed for quick knockdown and at what rate/gallon/1000sqft
    A
    No. Cy-Kick CS and Talstar P are both synthetic pyrethroids and there would be no valid reason to mix them together. We recommend that you stick with the Talstar P. Use 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon of water to treat a 1,000 sq ft area for the best knockdown and the longest residual. If you want a faster knockdown than the Talstar P alone can provide you can add 1 oz ExciteR to the Talstar/water mixture. ExciteR is a pyrethrin product which provides a super fast knockdown but no residual.

  • Asked by Sue from Slanesville, Wv

    Q
    How do we get rid of field mice/stinkbugs/flying squirrels and "ladybugs"?
    we bought a modular home (we are second owners/hse vacant for 1yr) - had exterminating contract for 1 yr - yr is over, no luck. have 4 indoor cats - tried do it yourself products - no luck - they are dirty, leave droppings, curtains spotted (from bugs), vacuuming up constant - mice/squirrels in walls keep us awake - can even hear them above the fan! afraid they will chew wires etc and set the house on fire. HELP
    A
    Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like there are a few things going on here. First, please see our squirrel control page.  If you know where the squirrels are entering you can use a Squirrel trap. Also, try and seal up any entry points using copper mesh. This will help with the mice as well. Second, please see our Mice control page. You can use the  Rodent Kit to bait and kill the mice. You would place the tamper resistant bait stations around the outside perimeter of your home. Lastly, we would recommend using Talstar P for your insect control indoors and out.

    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.
