Talstar P can be applied at any time of day.
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.
It is recommended to apply Talstar P monthly for mosquitoes.
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.

Yes, you should discard the edible vegetation that came into contact with any of the Talstar P.
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.
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.
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.
