    Q
    Will Talstar kill baby giant Florida grasshoppers?
    These are also known as Lubbers- my information says they can be killed with certain insecticides, but only a few. This is a large property, and our exterminator recommended this product, but it’s an expensive process which we don’t mind paying for if it will be effective. They’re still babies.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) can kill grasshoppers including lubbers.

    Q
    What is the mixing ratio for dry wood termites using Talstar P (Talstar One)?
    I have active termites coming through ceiling in one closet, annual issue.
    A

     

    According to the Talstar P product label, you will need to use 1 oz of Talster per gallon of water and then apply at the rate of 4 gallons of dilution per 10 linear feet of trench. You will need to calculate how many linear feet you have around the structure you wish to treat to find out how much Talstar you will need to purchase. Please take a few minutes to read over our termite article How to do a Termite Treatment so you will have a better understanding of what may be required for the treatment process. Drywood termites require treatment with a product such as Bora-Care. Please take a few moments to review our article on How to Get Rid of Drywood Termites for additional tips.

    Q
    What is the best outside treatment for my centipede problem?
    Of all the products that say they kill centipedes which works best for my whole yard. I have pest control come to treat inside my house. Im still getting tons of centipedes entering the house eventually dying.However my yard and driveway and front entrance is full of them where we do not treat I'm trying to take control of these darn things from entering the house. I figure now I need to treat our whole property. So which is the best product you sell.
    A

    Talstar P would be a good choice to use around the inside and outside of your home to eliminate centipedes. Indoors you can apply Talstar P to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, and any other place where the insects can gain entry. Outdoors you should apply the product to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, around the bottom of the foundation and out onto the ground directly around the foundation. You can also limit favorable conditions that the centipedes need to thrive. 

    Remove Favorabe Conditions

    • Fix leaky faucets or pipes and dry up wet or damp areas where centipedes thrive
    • Remove outdoor harborages near the home that hold moisture (compost, wood, or leaf piles, etc).
    • Store firewood off the ground at least 20 feet away from the home
    • Water your lawn in the morning so that it will be dry by afternoon
    • Do not over mulch flower beds, since soggy mulch is an ideal harborage for centipedes

  • Asked by Wilbur from Ackerman, Ms 39735
    04/19/2015
    Q
    Can I use Talstar P where my horses will be grazing for fire ant control?
    A
    Talstar P is NOT labeled for use in pastures containing grazing animals. Extinguish Plus is actually the product of choice in areas where horses may be kept or will be grazing (as long as the horses will not be used for feed or food). Extinguish Plus combines the power of hydramethylnon with an insect growth regulator (IGR) to kill fire ant workers and prevent queens from laying fertile eggs. The result is complete fire ant colony control. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait is best used in the spring or early fall, or whenever fire ants are active. The ants will feed off Extinguish Plus and spread the bait throughout the entire colony, halting the infestation within weeks. You can use this product on pastureland, however you must remove all grazing livestock for at least 48 hours after application.  Then they can return to the land after 48 hours.

    Q
    What type of face mask can I use to apply Talstar P.
    A

    A mask is not required to apply Talstar P if you are applying in a well-venitlated area.  If you are applying in a small, confined space with poor ventilation, you can use something like the N95 Valved Respirator Mask.  Please be advised that we are only able to ship within the U.S. at this time.

    Q
    Does Talstar kill fleas, bedbugs, and cockroach eggs?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for fleas, bedbugs, and roaches. However, Talstar P will not kill roach eggs and should only be used outdoors for fleas, NOT indoor flea control. Fleas, bedbugs, and roaches are all hard to control insects and we would recommend a targeted treatment plan to ensure complete erradication. Please email us or give us a call at 866-581-7378 so that we may get additional information regarding your circumstances and make a proper, educated recommendation regarding products and treatments. We hope to hear from you soon!

    Talstar is an insecticide only and will not have any effect on moss. Burnout Weed and Grass Killer is a non-selective herbicide that is labeled to control moss. You should spray this product only on the moss and avoid getting it on desirable plants.

    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
    For large yard, should I have a blower to apply Talstar P?
    I have a large yard, over 15000 square feet, surrounded by large trees/woods. I would need to treat ground cover, bushes/shrubs, and also the perimeter of the property going into the woods and up into the trees several feet. Is the solo mister/blower or the Stihl mister/blower the best way or is a hand sprayer adequate or preferred?
    A
    A hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer would be the preferred method of application. For that large of an area a backpack sprayer would be the best method.  We carry all types and we even have one that is battery powered that is very popular and makes it very easy to apply the product.

    Q
    I live in Ocala, Fl, and I need Diazinon (or better).
    I just moved to Ocala, Florida from up north in Maryland. The ants and termites are everywhere, and they are getting in the house. I had used Diazinon years ago (in Maryland) to control pests. It was GREAT. What is equal too or better than it, that can be purchased at a local Lowes or Home Depot?
    A

    Diazinon was outlawed over 10 years ago, and it is too bad because it was a great product.  Unfortunately, the over the counter products do not even come close to the effectiveness of Diazinon.  However, our professional products do!  We sell the same professional products used by professional companies that cannot be sold over the counter.  Our most popular product is Talstar P.  It is a general use insecticide which can be applied inside and outside, is odorless, is labeled for over 80 different insects, and can last up to 90 days in between treatments.  Please take a moment and read some of our over 50 customer reviews about how well Talstar worked for them.
