    Q
    I have a great crop of moss in my shaded back yard. Will Talstar eliminate it?
    A
    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.

    Q
    I have a caterpillar eating the top of a blue spruce tree. What product do you recommend to kill them?
    The tree is about 7 feet tall and the caterpillar or worms are all over.
    A
    It is important to have the caterpillar identified so that we can make the best product recommendation for your needs. Without the exact identification we would recommend Talstar P as it is a broad spectrum insecticide that can be sprayed on blue spruce trees.

  • Asked by Allen from College Station, Tx
    04/03/2013
    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P and Permethrin SFR together in a hose end sprayer and apply at the same time?
    I already have Permethrin SFR but after reading on your Q&A site that the residual effect for mosquitos is better with Talstar P which I ordered some from you today. Just want to know if I can use both at the same time or is that overkill. Mainly using on my lawn to kill flying insects, ticks, fleas, and ants.
    A
    We do not recommend that you mix these products together as they are both synthetic pyrethroids and it would be like doubling the usage rate of each product. Just using the Talstar P for mosquito control will work very well. We recommend using 1fl oz per gallon of water for best results.

  • Asked by Diy-d from Northern, Virginia
    06/06/2016
    Q
    Will the Talstar P affect turtles?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is safe to use around animals as long as they are out of the area while you are spraying, they can return as soon as the area is dry. Although The Talstar P (Talstar One) is safe once it's dried, you do not want to apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Drift and run-off from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas.

    Q
    Is Talstar, sprayed from a backpack mister, effective on cankerworms?
    A

    Talstar is not labeled for cankerworms.  The most widely recommended product to use for cankerworms is Bacillus thuringiensis, or B.t.  A product like Monterey B.t. Insecticide may be a better option for you.  There is a great article here on the treatment and prevention of cankerworms.

    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 Milton from Landers, Ca
    09/19/2015
    Q
    Does Talstar/ Bifen IT ..mixed at 1 oz per gallon effective against dust mite as well as kill chiggers?
    I need a product that will kill chiggers and mites..including dust mites in a residence without harming my dogs.
    A

    Neither Talstar or Bifen are labeled for dust mites and would not be recommended as they are very specific to the type of mites they will kill.  Please take a moment to read our article here on "Dust Mite Control"

    Chiggers are not known to infest structures and are most likely outdoors in your yard.  While Talstar or Bifen are labeled for chiggers, Onslaught is typically the more recommended.  Onslaught is micro-encapsulated and will last a little longer on outdoor surfaces which does give it a bit of advantage over Talstar P.  Onslaught is also labeled for "mites" in general but would not be recommended for dust mites. Treatments for chiggers should begin in May and could need to continue through the summer as new chiggers move into the area. Treating the entire lawn is of little benefit because chiggers avoid direct sunlight and normally will not infest areas that are mowed or otherwise well maintained. Focus treatment on the unkempt areas of the lawn and lawn edge. You can also use Onslaught to do a barrier treatment around the outside of your home and in your crawl space to stop pests from moving indoors.

    All of the products are pet safe when used as directed.  Pets should be out of the area during treatment until dry.

  • Asked by Jay from Kansas City, Mo
    05/12/2017
    Q
    What is the best all around pesticide for home barrier treatment?
    I have general little black ants, spiders, wasps, and many other insects. No major infestations that I know of, but now that spring is here we are seeing a lot more insects. What is the best wide range and long lasting insecticide? I read Talstar, Termidor, Temprid, Bifen, etc. and it is confusing as to which is the best product for general pest control. Also, is there one better for inside and one better for outside? Thanks
    A

    We typically recommend Talstar P for general home pest control.  It is labeled for over 75 different pests, so it will work for all of the ones you mentioned as well as many others.  It can be used indoor and outdoors, and it is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.  You will want to treat every 90 days indoors, and every 30 days outdoors.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Asked by Megam from Quincy, Mi
    06/21/2015
    Q
    Is Talstar safe to spray around rivers, ponds, and lakes?
    A
    Talstar is highly toxic to all aquatic life and should not be used near any bodies of water including rivers, ponds or lakes. We do carry several products like Essentria IC3 that works similar to the Talstar but is a natural product that is completely safe for aquatic life. Please see the product label for full usage insructions depending on what pest you are treating for. On average, the manufacturer recommends using 1-2 oz of Essentria IC3 to every gallon of water.
