    Q
    Will Talstar P hurt aquatic animals?
    A

    Yes. Fish and aquatic invertebrates share many of the same biological characteristics as insects making them susceptible to insecticides. Talstar P's product label has these precautions:

    "This pesticide is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Drift and run-off from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwaters. Care should be used when spraying to avoid fish and reptile pets in/around ornamental ponds"

    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
    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.

    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.

    Q
    Will Talstar help with the flies and ladybugs that are around in the spring and fall?
    A
    Talstar would be a great choice for flies and ladybugs. Be sure to spray in areas where the insects are known to land or harbor. If you are trying to prevent these insects from over wintering in your home you should spray Talstar P outdoors around your door frames, window frames, vents, eaves, around the bottom of your foundation, and any other crack or crevice where an insect could gain entry once a month August-November.

    Q
    What should I use for home maintainence to protect from roach, ant, spiders & general bug problems?
    I just fired my pest control company after continued 10 years of service. The cost was skyrocketing and I felt I could do it myself,for less money. I live in Northwestern area of South Carolina (foothills). I am not currently experiencing any problems and want to keep it that way. In the past I have had an occasional roach bug (German, American cockroaches) transit the home (inside) from one side to the other, Also an line of very tiny ants, that may come in from a flower windowbox just outside the kitchen sink. My home is situated on a wooded lot, surrounded by Oak trees. Also, the pest company did occasionally spray around the perimeter of the home for roaches/ants and often applied a granulated bait around the home. The wife is threatening to 'call the pest company' if she see's any roaches. Save me! What products do you recommend?
    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.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P as a drench?
    I have a 50 ft banyan tree that is about 15ft around that got infested last year and lost all of the leaves. It has grown back over the winter and I don't want to go threw that again. I want prevent it now if I can. Thanks
    A
    Talstar P does not work as a systemic insecticide and that seems to be what you are looking for. You should consider using a product that contains Imidacloprid such as the Adonis 2F. Adonis 2F can be used as a soil drench around the tree and the product will be translocated through the tree. You will need to use .2 oz - .4 oz of Adonis 2F per inch of trunk diameter at breast height.

    Q
    If I dilute Talstar 7.9, 1oz in a gallon of water, what % of bifenthrin will I now have?
    The store brand says 0.3% bifenthrin in a quart hose sprayer bottle.By the time this is diluted with the water from the hose what % am I using? I would like to triple the strength I am getting now with the store product.In other words ,how much 7.9% should go into the quart hose sprayer bottle to give me a .9%solution ?What would the final % be that I would be applying?
    A
    If you mix 1 oz of Talstar P per gallon of water you will be using a 0.06% solution. The Talstar P product label says not to use a higher concentration that the 0.06% solution and we do not recommend that you do so. We do not have any information on the store brand product that you used so we are not sure what the dilution usage rate would be on that product. Each hose end sprayer is different  in the way that it is used but if you are following the directions and use 1 oz of product per gallon of water then the end usage rate will be 0.06%.

    Based on the fact that you are in Texas and the description you gave, the multi-legged critter with the stingers on the back end sounds like it could be the Texas Red Headed Centipede (they are venomous) but we can't say for sure without seeing a picture of the insect. You can Google Texas red Headed Centipede to do a comparison if you like.

    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
    How do I mix Talstar in a mister for mosquito control?
    I am wanting to treat a one acre lawn for mosquitoes. I dont see the application rate for a mister it shows .33 to 1 ounce per gallon per 1,000 square feet. that would be over 43.5 gallon for one acre...i would need to refill about 12.5 times..that seems to be a lot of material for one acre from a backpack mister/blower.
    A
    The application usage rate that you noted in your question is correct for mosquito control. Most folks do not treat the entire acre but instead choose to treat in the areas where the mosquitoes will actually make contact with a treated area. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or where you are trying to provide relief.  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 during the heat of the day.  Talstar should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.

    Q
    How to get rid of sand gnats for a backyard wedding in June?
    We live in Georgia on the marsh and would like to have a gnat free evening in June for our son's wedding? Have any suggestions?
    A
    Talstar P will offer some control if applied to the trees, bushes and grass a few days before the wedding to lower the gnat population in the area. The morning of the wedding you may want to try to use a pyrethrin based product such as Riptide in a mist blower over the whole area which will kill anything that is flying around and help repel the gnats from the area for several hours.

  • Asked by Allen from College Station, Tx
    04/03/2013
    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P and Permethrin SFR together in a hose end sprayer and apply at the same time?
    I already have Permethrin SFR but after reading on your Q&A site that the residual effect for mosquitos is better with Talstar P which I ordered some from you today. Just want to know if I can use both at the same time or is that overkill. Mainly using on my lawn to kill flying insects, ticks, fleas, and ants.
    A
    We do not recommend that you mix these products together as they are both synthetic pyrethroids and it would be like doubling the usage rate of each product. Just using the Talstar P for mosquito control will work very well. We recommend using 1fl oz per gallon of water for best results.

    Q
    Best product for spiders?
    I live in Arkansas and in my apartment I constantly get all kinds of spiders on a daily (mostly at night). As an example, tonight in the past hour I have killed 4 spiders and the night isn't over... and this happens every single night now for over a year. Is there anything aside from direct spray on type insecticides that will kill quickly and something that also might be like a barrier that they will avoid to try and limit the amount coming in? I ordered roach killer from you guys made by DuPont and wow.. one application and I havent seen a single one in MONTHS! So hope you can help with this spider issue.
    A
    That is awesome news that you were able to control the roaches! For treatment of spiders, you can definitely use Talstar P. Talstar is odorless, dries clear and will treat spiders, including brown recluse. Talstar acts as a residual and will make a barrier. Please let us know id you have any other questions.
