    Q
    After spraying Talstar P indoors what type floor cleaning is ok?
    A
    Since Talstar can only be sprayed directly into cracks and crevices around the perimeter of rooms  indoors, any type of floor cleaning you choose should not be a problem.

    Q
    In Virginia and want to spray the entire yard this summer for mosquitos and ticks.
    In Virginia, the newspapers are predicting a very bad season for ticks and mosquitos. I would like to spray the entire backyard (trees, shrubs, and lawn) with permethrin in an Ortho Sprayette, connected to a garden hose. Can you tell me if this is the best product to use and, if so, what are the mixing instructions? Thanks!
    A
    Permethrin is not labeled for outdoor mosquito control. We would recommend using Talstar P for tick and mosquito control in your yard. Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control and tick 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 where you are trying to provide relief from mosquitoes and to all the tall vegetation and other known tick harboring locations.  It should be directed not only on top of the leaves of plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well which is where pests like to hang out. Talstar P should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.

    Q
    How does Talstar P compare to the new Suspend Polyzone?
    Does Suspend Polyzone have a faster kill rate for spiders. I see in the Q&A that Talstar P takes longer to kill since it is a residual. Can you give some guidance on whether this is true for Suspend Polyzone?
    A
    The active ingredient in Talstar is not protected like that of the Suspend Polyzone. Talstar will last 30 days outdoors. 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. It also stays right where you put it, so if you want to increase the effectiveness of your treatments, put the science of Suspend Polyzone to work for you.

    Q
    Hi, I purchased Talstar P from you in the fall, and plan on using it this spring.
    I plan on using it around the yard and the house to control biting insects and ants. We have free-ranging chickens. Will this be dangerous to them?
    A
    Talstar has a three year shelf life and can be applied at 0.5-1oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft. It should not be applied to any grazing areas, on any animals or areas where there are chickens.

    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
    When applying Talstar P (Talstar One) do I need to wear a mask?
    If I am using a backpack mister, i.e. the Solo 451, do I need to wear a mask when spraying Talstar? Thanks, Stew
    A
    According to the Talstar P product label "all pesticide handlers must wear a respiratory protection device when working in a non-ventilated space." Respiratory devices are not required for well ventilated spaces or outdoor applications. The Talstar P product label also says "all applicators should wear longsleeved shirt and long pants, socks, shoes and chemical-resistant gloves."

    Q
    Rid mosquitos in wooded wetland area
    I live in NH. what is the best product and why to apply it around my property. I have wetlands on two sides of my yard. Thanks
    A
    Talstar P is one of the most popular mosquito control products on the market. Talstar P will last for about one month outdoors for mosquito control, is gentle on the plants that must be sprayed, has no odor, is water based so it doesn't stain and is very safe to use around children and pets when used as directed on the product label. You will need about 1 oz of product for every 1,000 sq ft of space you need to treat. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio 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.  Talstar should be applied every 30 days for optimum control. Care must be taken not to get Talstar into any body of water as it is known to be toxic to aquatic life. If you feel that keeping it out of the water may be too difficult we also carry Essentria IC3 which is labeled for mosquito control and is non-toxic to aquatic life.

    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
    Should I spray the outside of the house as recommended with Talstar P in conjunction with another product for mosquitoes?
    Or is Talstar P enough? I don't live close to water, but the mosquitoes are horrible.
    A
    Talstar P is a recommended product for mosquito control. You will need to spray more than just the outside of your home though. You will need to spray the underside of the leaves on trees and bushes nearby as that is where the mosquitoes spend the heat of the day. We have also had good reviews from people who sprayed a 2 foot band around the perimeter of their property.

    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
    Can I spray talstar or bifenthrin on my pool cage screen to prevent " no see ums" from getting in?
    I was told to use permethrin but it doesn't seem to work...my pool is constantly full of them! I'm hoping the oil based bifenthrin is the answer.
    A
    The active ingredient Bifenthrin is labeled to help control Noseeums. You would want to treat the perimeter of the pool with Talstar P focusing on the bushes, trees, shrubs and ground cover surrounding the pool. Incorporating an Insect Growth Regulator such as Archer IGR will help break down the population because it keeps the insects from being able to reproduce. A great contact kill to use is Microcare Aerosol Spray to use around the entry points to the pool house (doors, eaves, joint areas against screen)

    Q
    Where do I spray Talstar P for mosquitoes?
    We are building a patio in our backyard for a fire pit. Should we spray the furniture and surrounding fence to keep the mosquitos and other flies away from it? Is it safe to spray on a vinyl fence?
    A
    Talstar P can be mixed at 1 oz per gallon of water and be applied once a month to the exterior of the structure. We do not recommend applying it to any furniture. We suggest applying it to all non-edible shrubery and the tree foliage (especially targeting the undersides of the leaves). You can spray around window frames, door frames, the siding and lawn.
