    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.

    Q
    Is it ok to spray Talstar P on sliding glass patio doors?
    When doing the outdoor treatment of the house with Talstar P, your video suggests I spray 2 feet up the house and 2 feet along the ground. When I get to a sliding glass door, should I spray 2 feet up on the glass door? What about on the sliding screen door, should I spray the bottom two feet of the screen door too?
    A
    When treating around patio doors you will want to spray all around the frame of the door itself and where the doors slide past each other, as well as along the track the doors slide on. You would not need to spray the glass to get an effective treatment.

    Q
    What is the best product to use around my home for general pest control?
    I had a professional pest control company that I no longer use. They only used an outside barrier spray, but never had insects, except maybe a few ants. I just recently have seen some very small bugs in my house on occasion. Do you have a good barrier bug control. I am a regular customer of you folks. Thank you!
    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.

  • Asked by Harold from Linden, Michigan

    Q
    Does a mosquito spray, like Talstar P, affect the honey bee once it dries?
    Talstar, Tekko Pro, and BTI, do these or similar chemicals affect the honey bee if sprayed on the flowers or if over spray landed on the flowers they use?
    A

    Some insecticides, like Talstar P, can be harmful to beneficial insects such as honey bees. Per Talstar P's label, Talstar "is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment of residues on blooming crops or weeds", so we wouldn't recommend spraying while bees are present or on blooms that bees can later land on. Tekko Pro IGR is just a growth regulator not an insecticide so as long as it's used as directed, it shouldn't harm beneficials. As far as BTI, if you're referring to the BTI Mosquito Dunks, that product is a larvacide and it only goes in water retention sites. If you meant Monterey B.T. Insecticide, the product "has no effect on birds, earthworms or beneficial insects such as honeybees and ladybugs, when used as directed." We recommend to always read the label of the product you decide to use to know how to use it properly and to check how it can affect beneficial insects.

    Q
    Can I mop the floors after spraying my house with Talstar P (Talstar One)?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One)  is labeled to be applied to cracks and crevices indoors. Mopping should not be an issue, as Talstar is not labeled to be applied as a broadcast over the floor. If you were to mop along the edges of the wall where Talstar was applied, it would take it up.

    Q
    I accidentally mixed 2 oz of Talstar to 1 gallon of water. Will that make the product less effective?
    A

    It should not harm anything to apply Talstar at this rate one time. We recommend that you wait for 30 days outside (90 days inside) to reapply at the rate of 0.5-1 oz per gallon of water.

  • Asked by Lorna from West Jefferson, Oh
    02/05/2016
    Q
    Will Talstar P treat stink and lady bugs or is the overwintering product better?
    A

    Yes, Talstar P is labeled for stink bugs and lady bugs. The mixing ratio is 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. This will be used to spray around baseboards, cracks and crevices.

    The Overwintering Kit is an excellent combination of products that protects you during your winter months with an insecticide and a dust. We generally do recommend at least using a dust with any other product, such as Talstar P, that you are using. The pests come in contact with it and dry out. This is an added protection to consider using throughout the year.

  • Asked by Sharon from Scurry Texas

    Q
    Grasshoppers, plague proportions, what's the recommended product?
    I would like to use a hose end sprayer with the water hose. I see the video of a gallon jug - being used only around the edges and crevises. I've got to cover the entire ground.
    A
    You can use Talstar P to cover non fruit bearing trees, lawns, bushes, shrubs and other areas excluding edible vegetation. Talstar P can be used in a hose end sprayer and should be diluted 1 fl oz per gallon of water for the fastest knockdown and the longest lasting residual for grasshopper control.
