    Q
    Can I spray Talstar P on the wall of the home near an herb garden?
    The plants are about 1 foot away from the wall of the home and are trimmed so they do not touch the house.
    A

    You should not spray Talstar P (or allow drift of spray) to contact herbs or any other edibles.  If this is not possible, we would not recommend using it in this area.

    Q
    How much Talstar P will I need for a 5 acre yard ?
    A
    The amount of Talstar P you will need for a 5 acre property will depend primarily on what pest you are trying to eliminate. An acre is 43,650 sq ft and you will need anywhere from a 1/4 fl oz - 1 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft area. Please take a few moments to read over the Talstar P product label to find the correct usage rate for your needs.

    Q
    What is good for camel spiders in central Colorado?
    I am looking for a spray to do the perimeter and possibly the baseboards for camel spiders. I live in Florida but do property management in CO. Hopefully something cheaper then Termidor.
    A

    Camel spiders certainly look scary but are basically harmless. You can treat the exterior and interior of structures if needed with a product such as Talstar P. Talstar works well for spiders, scorpions and other invading pests. We usually would not recommend Termidor for spider control as it is a very slow acting insecticide.

    Q
    Can Cy-Kick CS be mixed with Talstar P for mosquito control?
    If so how much of each product per gallon to treat 1000 sqft? If not Talstar what can be mixed for quick knockdown and at what rate/gallon/1000sqft
    A
    No. Cy-Kick CS and Talstar P are both synthetic pyrethroids and there would be no valid reason to mix them together. We recommend that you stick with the Talstar P. Use 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon of water to treat a 1,000 sq ft area for the best knockdown and the longest residual. If you want a faster knockdown than the Talstar P alone can provide you can add 1 oz ExciteR to the Talstar/water mixture. ExciteR is a pyrethrin product which provides a super fast knockdown but no residual.

  • Asked by Dominique from Bloomington, Il
    10/02/2017
    Q
    Can Talstar P be sprayed into a vent?
    I believe that the roaches that we had are coming from a neighbor's apt through vents. Can I spray it directly on the vent covering?
    A

    No, unfortunately Talstar P (Talstar One) is not labeled for application directly into a vent as this could result in the insecticide making its way through your air vents and you could possibly inhale the product and breathe it in.  If you feel that roaches are coming from your neighbor's apt we would suggest using a bait right outside of your vents.  You could use Maxforce FC Magnum or any of the other excellent roach bait gels that we sell.

    Q
    How do we get rid of field mice/stinkbugs/flying squirrels and "ladybugs"?
    we bought a modular home (we are second owners/hse vacant for 1yr) - had exterminating contract for 1 yr - yr is over, no luck. have 4 indoor cats - tried do it yourself products - no luck - they are dirty, leave droppings, curtains spotted (from bugs), vacuuming up constant - mice/squirrels in walls keep us awake - can even hear them above the fan! afraid they will chew wires etc and set the house on fire. HELP
    A
    Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like there are a few things going on here. First, please see our squirrel control page.  If you know where the squirrels are entering you can use a Squirrel trap. Also, try and seal up any entry points using copper mesh. This will help with the mice as well. Second, please see our Mice control page. You can use the  Rodent Kit to bait and kill the mice. You would place the tamper resistant bait stations around the outside perimeter of your home. Lastly, we would recommend using Talstar P for your insect control indoors and out.

  • Asked by Torry from New Gloucester Maine

    Q
    Will Talstar work for an exterior treatment for cluster flies and lady bugs
    i have always used termidor but looking for something less expensive
    A
    Talstar P can be used to help control cluster flies and lady bugs indoors and outdoors. If the cluster flies have already made their way indoors, they will be harder to control because they usually hide in a wall void or other inaccessible area and are only visible when the house warms up. If the cluster flies are in an attic or drop ceiling or other dark area, a fly light would do a great job controlling the population. Using small fly lights such as the Fly Web in the house would also help to catch the flies. Spray Talstar P directly on baseboards, window frames, door frames, and places where utilities (pipes, wires, cables) enter in to the building and any other crack, crevice or gap where insects can enter.

    Q
    Do you recommend any pest control for wood mulch around a play set?
    We have put up a play set (swings, slide, sand box), and we have put wood mulch around it as a cushion for the play set. I have been told that ants (and other undesired bugs) make this their home. Is there something I can use that is kid friendly (my daughter is old enough not to eat the wood chips) if any gets on her hands or feet?
    A
    You can spray around the perimeter of the play area with Talstar P. Talstar P has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for up to three months after you have sprayed it. Plus, Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and will not break down easily with rainfall. We do not recommend spraying any insecticides directly on areas where children will be coming in skin contact on a regular basis.

  • Asked by Karen from Painesville, Oh
    05/15/2012
    Q
    What is the best product to prevent both crawling and flying insects?
    We spend hundreds of $$ every year to have our house sprayed to prevent bees, ants, spiders, etc. The exterminator guarantees the spray for 6 months. Is there a product that would do the same that we could do ourselves?
    A
    There are not any insecticides on the market that will last for 6 months outdoors. What actually happens is the exterminator will spray a product and wipe out all of the insects nearby and it can take many months for the pests to build back up to an intolerable level. If you have been happy with the treatment the pest control operator has been using you can ask them what product they have been using. Most PCO's will also write the name of the product or the active ingredient on your bill as most states require this. We carry just about any product your PCO would have used. Our most popular general use insecticide among professionals and homeowners is Talstar P. It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer.  It will last for 60 to 90 days outside in between treatments.  It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf eating pests. Talstar is also available in a granule formula called Talstar PL if you prefer to use granules.

    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P with a weed killer?
    A

    Most insecticides and herbicides are able to be tank mixed together, just make sure you follow each product label instructions for "tank mixing" instructions. You would want to keep kids out of the area while treating, they can return once the are has completely dried

  • Asked by Frances
    02/16/2019
    Q
    Is Talstar systemic?
    I am looking for a systemic chemical for spider mites on tropical hibiscus. A local garden center recommended Hi-Yield 38. Do you have a recommendation. I have 200+ plants.
    A

    Neither Talstar P Professional Insecticide or Hi-Yield 38 are systemic products. We are unaware of any systemic product that is labeled for use for spider-mite control as a soil drench.  This pest is mainly treated with foliar sprays with something like Talstar P,  Avid (which is a translaminar systemic – meaning absorbed through the leaves), or Hexygon DF.

    Q
    What are the two tops to the Talstar P bottle for?
    On Talstar P has 2 outlets, how come, what do I do with 2 outlets.
    A
    Most professional pest control products come in a bottle with a built in measuring device.  The top to the left has a measuring reservoir that measures in 1/2 and 1 ounce increments so you can easily mix the product with water.  The right hand side is just a normal top that will allow all of the product to come out.  Most people never open the right hand side though because most people just use an ounce at a time.

  • Asked by Bryson from Forbes Nd
    07/07/2014
    Q
    I have been using Tempo for mosquito control. How does Talstar compare to tempo or basically which is better?
    Also does Talstar wash off after a rain and do you recommend using to help the product stick or become more residual?
    A
    Both Talstar and Tempo are great products. Talstar P (Talstar One) does provide and quick knockdown and can be applied to many different areas. Tempo allows for a powder formulation with even dispersal of a powder. Both products have different manufacturers. There is no real way to make a product have a longer residual. You can mix in ExciteR which will increase the quickness and intensify the kill.

    Q
    Can I apply Talstar P around the house and windows using a garden hose sprayer? It seems as if it would be easier and faster than using the hand held sprayer.
    A
    You can apply Talstar P using a hose end sprayer. Be sure your hose end sprayer can be calibrated to the correct usage rate for the pest and area you want to treat. We do carry the Chapin Hose End Sprayer 6005 which can be calibrated for any usage rate listed on the Talstar P product label.

    Q
    When should I treat for sod webworms in Central Florida? What should I use that is safe for bahia grass?
    A

    The most popular product for sod webworms is Talstar. Talstar is very effective on most insects and it is safe for bahia grass. 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 take a look at our Sod Webworm Treatment Guide for more information.
