    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.

    Q
    Can I mix a stronger solution of Talstar P?
    I'm renovating a home and have seen a few of those larger roaches (maybe palmetto bugs or American cockroaches?) dead in various places in the home. For the initial application, would it be of any benefit to mix a stronger Talstar P solution, say 1.5 oz to 1 gallon water? Or does a stronger solution not work any better than the recommended 1 oz to 1 gallon? Thanks. Great website!
    A
    Thank you! We do not recommend to mix any higher a dosage than what the products label instructs. This could cause a resistance issue down the road if the product is over applied. We recommend mixing Talstar P at a rate of 1fl oz per one gallon of water.

    Q
    Is Talstar safe for birds?
    A
    Talstar is very safe to use around children and pets once it is dry.  You should remove the bird and any other animals and children from the room while you are performing the treatment.  Once the treatment is dry, which usually takes about 45 minutes, it is perfectly safe to place the bird and other pets back into the room

    Q
    I have chickens who free range in my around and along my home.
    After the treatment has dried will eating the grass and bugs harm my chickens?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled to be used in poultry houses and chicken pens so it should not harm your chickens. You must make sure your chickens are out of the area while you apply Talstar P and then they can return to the area as soon as it is dry.

    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
    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
    What is the proper indoor application for Talstar?
    I live in China and hired a company that uses this product but it is difficult to communicate. Should Talstar be sprayed only in cracks and crevices or on walls? Can it be sprayed in food cupboards?
    A
    Talstar P should only be applied 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 pipers, doors and windows, attics and eaves, behind and under refirgerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas.  It is not labeled to be used in cabinets.  You can find complete instructions on the product label here.

    Q
    If I thoroughly washed all walls and surfaces following application, is the effectiveness of Talstar reduced?
    My apartment was sprayed for cockroaches and I have a 5-year-old child that I didn't want exposed to insecticides. We waited 48 hours before returning after the spraying was done.
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) is only labeled fro cracks and crevices indoors. If you washed those areas, Talstar P (Talstar One) would be less effective.

    Q
    Will your product get rid of moles?
    A friend told me about this product for moles, but I didn't see moles mentioned.
    A
    Talstar P is labled to control grubs which will in turn cause moles to go elsewhere because their food source has been eliminated but Talstar P does not kill moles. This type of treatment can take some time to see results so we would recommend that you take a look at our Mole Control Page.

    Q
    I know you say Talstar is not harmful to dogs after it dries but if it gets wet again does it have to dry?
    A
    Talstar P is safe if applied and dried prior to the dogs entering the treated surfaces for the initial application. If the treated area gets wet again, it does not reactivate the product so it will be safe.

  • Asked by David from Americus, Ga

    Q
    What is the best method to kill fire ant mounds using Talstar P?
    A

    Yes, Talstar P can be used for fire ant control in the type of sprayer you described, but you will also need to do mound drenching. According to the Talstar P product label, "Fire Ant Mound control is optimized by combining broadcast applications that will control foraging workers and newly mated fly-in queens with mound drenches that will control existing colonies. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application or use a high volume application. Apply broadcast treatments at 0.5 to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Use enough finished volume to penetrate thatch or sod. Treat mounds by applying 1 oz of Talstar P per mound in 1 to 2 gallons water by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat 3 feet out around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12”. Treat mounds with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 - 80F) or in early morning or late evening hours."

    Q
    I have a wasp and hornet Apocalypse going on out here at our house! Will this do the job at getting them gone?
    Wasps Bees Hornets
    A

    Talstar will kill any wasp, bee, or hornet that comes into contact with a treated area.  Keep in mind that this is not a contact kill product, so it can take up to 24 hours for an insect to die after contacting a treated surface.  You can also use a product like Wasp Freeze as a contact kill.  If you know where any of the nests are located, you can use Wasp Freeze to treat those directly as well.  It is best to apply any insecticides in the early morning or evening when the wasps/bees/hornets are least active.

    Q
    What can I use for general pest control that won't harm my cats?
    A

    Talstar P is our most popular product for general pest control.  It is labeled for over 75 different pests and can be used indoors and outdoors.  It is safe for cats and other pets if used as directed.  Cats need to be kept out of the area during application and until all surfaces are dry.  It is fine for them to return to the area once it is dry.

    Q
    Can Talstar P be tank mixed with a soluble fertilzer formulation, and foliar application to Knockout Roses?
    I have knockout rose beds that are difficult to access once the roses are in spring growth. I need to control adult Japanese beetles that are actively feeding on the roses. My only choice is foliar treatment for both insecticides and fertilization. It would save time if I could perfom beetle treatment and foliar fertilization in one application. Also, is this the best product for foliar application treatment of adult Japanese Beetles on roses?
    A

    Talstar P can be tank mixed as long as both product labels are followed for rates.  Talstar is a great product to use for beetles, just avoid spraying the blooms to prevent burning/harm.
