    Q
    Will Talstar work better than Niban FG on my camel crickets?
    A
    With Talstar P the crickets just need to cross over treated areas to get a lethal dose of the insecticide. With the Niban FG they need to be attracted to and then consume the bait. Both products work great and both will do a great job it just breaks down to what is needed for your particular space. Is it okay to apply an insecticide? Can you get to the areas that need to be treated? If so an insecticide like Talstar will work very well.

    I have chickens who free range in my around and along my home.
    After the treatment has dried will eating the grass and bugs harm my chickens?

    Talstar P is labeled to be used in poultry houses and chicken pens so it should not harm your chickens. You must make sure your chickens are out of the area while you apply Talstar P and then they can return to the area as soon as it is dry.

    Q
    Which is the best product to control centipedes?
    They come in through windows. I hate them.
    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

    Q
    Mud Daubers
    How does this product fare against mud daubers? i dont see them listed on the insect label. i'm looking for something that has a residual killing effect for mud daubers and all types of wasps and bees
    A
    Talstar P will kill mud daubers that come into contact with treated areas for a sufficient amount of time to receive a lethal dose. You will need to dilute 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon of water and broadcast spray over the areas where you have noticed activity. Most folks notice only very limited results from broadcast sprays of insecticides for cicada killers because they don't land and walk around for a long enough time before entering their underground burrow. For a more direct treatment, you can use Delta dust in each individual burrow. You may also want to consider our Wasp and Hornet Control Products.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P to spray for fleas indoors? If so, how do you apply indoors for use?
    A

    We do not recommend treating the inside of the home with Talstar P for flea control. It is a crack and crevice application indoors only. Fleas will be on the majority portion of the flooring and furniture. We recommendt that you treat with the products in our Indoor Flea Kit. Please take a few minutes to read our How to Get Rid of Fleas Article for more helpful information on eradication inside.

    Q
    I want to use Talstar P to spray my lawn.
    I want to use it w/ an all purpose sprayer that you attach to a garden hose such as the Gilmour 362. Would this work? I am especially wanting to spray my front and back yard to guard against fleas, ticks, grubs and ants.
    A
    Talstar P will work in most hose end sprayers though a few folks have commented that the sprayer they used did get clogged because Talstar is a little bit thick. Talstar P is a great general use insecticide but it is not labeled to control grubs. Most general use insecticides do not control grubs.  For grub control you will need to use a product such as Dominion 2L that contains imidacloprid.

  • Asked by Don from Carrol County Miss.
    01/07/2019
    Q
    Is Talstar P a good and longest lasting product that will kill pine beetles and bark beetles?
    A

    We generally recommend using a pyrethroid such as Talstar P Professional Insecticide or Permethrin SFR as a preventative treatment in late spring/summer before egg hatch to protect trees. If trees are badly infested, then they should be removed and either chipped or burned.

    Keep in mind that trees which become infested with bark beetles are almost always susceptible due to some other existing weakness such as drought or disease.

    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.

  • Asked by Tricia from Ft Myers Florida
    10/05/2013
    Q
    What is the best product to use for a millipede infestation?
    A
    Millipedes are usually going to be present when there is a lot of moisture in the area. If you have a lot of mulch near your house you may want to consider raking it back at least six inches away from the house. Also trimming bushes so that you can see the soil beneath them and so they do not touch the house will help reduce soil moisture and stop the insects from gaining access to the house via the bushes.  Talstar P would be a great choice for this pest.  You would apply around the outside perimeter of the home (especially under and around eaves, decks, patios, and window shutters), and inside along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and other potential millipede harborages. We have also written an article with other tips that may help you with millipede control : Get Rid of Millipedes

  • Asked by Bert from Niceville, Fl

    Q
    Looking for product to control sod-web worms and other lawn pests including chinch bugs in FL.
    Bermuda, St. Augustine and Zoysia. May have cinch bugs as well. Tired of using products that don't work.
    A

    The most popular product for sod webworms is Talstar. Talstar is very effective on most insects including chinch bugs and it is gentle to plants. Time applications to control young larvae, if possible. Spot treatments may be applied when infestations are first detected and the damaged area is small. The treatment will be most effective if applied in the early evening when larvae begin feeding. Please check with your local cooperative extension office to see if a second generation is possible in one season in your region.
