    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 want to do my own pest control. What should I buy?
    I live in Gilbert, Arizona. We get spiders, ear wig, roaches....
    A

    The best general pest control can depend on what region you are located in. One of the all time favorite general pest control products is Talstar P. Talstar has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it. Plus, Talstar One is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall. Also for roaches, you want to use a bait like Maxforce Impact, Up in areas  you are not spraying Talstar. Please see the roach bait placement guide, as well.

    Q
    How can I control biting gnats in my yard?
    I purchased Riptide and Talstar. I am hoping that these will help control them a little bit so that I can feel comfortable out in my back yard. Thanks for your help
    A
    You purchased the exact products that we would have recommended. Spray Talstar P and Riptide on trees, shrubs and bushes paying special attention to the underside of the leaves. You can also spray your lawn to help control the low flying gnats that tend to land there. Talstar P will give a long lasting residual while the Riptide will give you a fast knockdown. You can use both products in the same area to get both a fast knock down and a long lasting residual. It is best to treat in the early morning or the late evening when these pests are most active.

  • 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 Jesse from Austin Tx
    06/18/2015
    Q
    How much Talstar P should I put in a 50 gal sprayer?
    I'v got fleas at my house so I bought a rig for my Big Yard.
    A
    When treating your yard for fleas with Talstar P you can use anywhere between 0.5 ounces and 1 oz per gallon of water. So anywhere between 25 and 50 ounces to your 50 gallon sprayer. Keep in mind when treating for fleas, its important to use an IGR (insect birth control) to help stop the reproductive cycle. If you only use a portion of the yard closest to the home you could just mix the IGR with the Talstar and spray them both in those areas that you frequent the most or the pets frequent. We would recommend NyGuard IGR to mix in your tank.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Asked by Kyle from Govols, Tn

    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.
