    Q
    What is the best and longest lasting mosquito product?
    I live in Southwest Louisiana and we have had a lot of rain lately thus a bad outbreak of the little bloodsuckers. I need a product that is not going to disappear after the first rainfall?
    A

    Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using any hand pump sprayer or backpack 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.

  • Asked by Kim from Anderson Sc
    05/28/2014
    Q
    How many gallons will you need to pre treat a 2000 sq ft with Talsar P?
    I need pre treat 180 liner feet... 50 + 50+ 40+ 40+ 180 liner feet
    A
    Per the Talstar P product label for pre construction you would use 1 oz per gallon of water per 10 square feet, but Talstar is not the best product to use for this.  Termidor SC is the #1 termite product on the market. When used as an in-ground barrier treatment, Termidor SC will protect your home or business for over 10 years. Termidor SC is completely undetectable by termites and once termites touch it they contact, ingest and spread the termiticide until it eliminates the entire colony. Termidor SC controls all types of termites including subterranean, formosan, and drywood termites. Talstar P lasts for about 5 years in the ground and works as a repellent, killing only those insects that come into contact with the treated area.

  • Asked by Marilyn
    03/16/2010
    Q
    Does Talstar P work on bed bugs? And if so, how often should one apply your product?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for bed bugs, but the Talstar label itself says it should not be used as the only product to get rid of a bed bug problem.  Typically, one product will not do the job.  That's why we offer our Bed Bug Kits, which have multiple products that are used in different areas in the bedroom and that do different things.  The kit is exactly the products that a professional company would use and charge you hundreds of dollars to apply.  All of our kits come with full instructions on where to apply each product.  We make it easy as possible for you to treat your own bed bug problem, and our kits have a very high success rate when used correctly.

    Q
    Is Talstar as safe as the pyrethrum products claim to be?
    Would like to use safer products now that we have kiddos.
    A
    Talstar P can be safely used around pets and children as long as you follow the label instructions; all pets and children need to be out of the area while application is being made and they can return as soon as the application is dry. Talstar is none irratating if it touches the skin, but is not recommended to be around until it has dried. Talstar will not harm babies if the product label is followed. Unless other wise noted, the pesticides on our website are safe to use in a home with children. As with any product, it is important to follow the label instructions and precautions to ensure safety. Talstar P is non-irritating, non-staining and contains no odorous or plant-damaging solvents. It's even labeled for food-handling area.

    Q
    My leylands are infested with bagworms. I bought Talstar and sprayed in late June early July.
    It spit rain about 4 hrs after spraying and then poured about 2 days after. Should I retreat or wait a month or so?
    A
    Talstar P only needs an hour or two to dry, and once it is dry it does not matter if it rains 2 hours later or 2 weeks later, it should hold up the same once dry.  So our answer is, you do not need to re-treat just yet.  However, it would not, or should not anyways, hurt the tree if you wanted to apply a second application now that is not mixed as strong for good measure.

    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 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
    What is the best general product (probably granules) for general insect/pest control for lawns in S. Florida
    I live in Plantation, FL 33324..... looking for the best outside general insect/pest control for my lawns .... are granules better than spraying, as I can do either. Also just recently have the little ghost/sugar ants inside my car.. what do I use for that.
    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. It will last for 60 to 90 days outside in between treatments. It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf eating pests. Talstar is also available in a granule formula called Talstar PL if you prefer to use granules.

    Our Complete Ant Kit is perfect for sugar ants, or argentine ants which is what their real name is.  The ants will eat the products in the Complete Ant Kit and take them back to wherever their colony is and feed the bait to the queen and all of the other colony members.  Usually within 5 - 10 days the entire colony will be eliminated.  The ant gel is for placement inside the home or car, and the granules are meant for outside around the home.  However, since our kit comes with bait plate stations, you can place both the gel and the granules in the bait plate stations so the ants inside the car have a choice when feeding.

    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
    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.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P use on a vegetable garden?
    What if you accidentally treated a vegetable garden before reading that Talstar P is not recommended for that application? If birds can eat infected insects, I would think one accidental application to a vegetable garden early in the growing season would be ok, as long as it's not repeated? Is there any information on this?
    A
    Talstar P should not be applied to edible vegetation. If any are treated, they should be discarded. We recommend that you contact the manufacturer (FMC) for additional safety concerns of the product. They can be reached at 800-321-1362.
