    Q
    How can I get rid of ground/miner bees that are in a hard to reach juniper bed?
    These bees return every year and seem to number in the thousands. There also seems to be more and more each year. They swarm in the heat of the day and are living along the edge of my yard in a massive Juniper bed. The Junipers are mature and thick, so I can't even see their holes/nests, but when they are active, they are very intimidating and create concern for child safty.
    A

    A good treatment of Talstar should help do the trick.  However, if the junipers are really thick, then you need to apply quite a bit for the product to get down to the ground where the bees are nesting.

    Q
    i have crane flys in my yard how fast will talstar kill them,and when is the best time of year to treat the
    is a good time to treat for larva so they don't hatch.
    A

    Talstar should be used early to mid season to control the larvae of crane flies. This application should be made between August-February during times when the ground is not frozen. If treatments are made in March-April, they may only provide supression. You can consult with your local cooperative extension office for details on timing of application in your area specifically.

    Q
    What product is best to use in a Spider-B-Gone misting system at my lake house?
    I want to control spiders and insects at the top of my exterior walls. I have been switching between Riptide 5.0% ULV and Pyranha 1-10 PX
    A
    We are not familiar with that misting system. Talstar is a great product to use in a misting sprayer. Riptide and Pyrahna are still top choices for misting systems.

    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is labeled for a wide variety of small flying insects including gnats, midges and other small biting flies and should help reduce the amount of midges on your property.

  • Asked by Thaddeus from Virginia Beach, Va
    07/09/2015
    Q
    Can Talstar P be applied with a sponge to metal window frames?
    I don't want to use a sprayer because I'm afraid the spray will mess up the window glass.
    A

    A hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer would be the preferred method of application for using Talstar P, a sponge would be not recommended.  When treating around doors and windows you will want to spray around the frame of the windows themselves and where the windows slide past each other when opening  You would not need to spray the glass to get an effective treatment but can spray screens if needed.

  • Asked by Laura from Hysham
    06/01/2018
    Q
    Will Talstar P keep flies off my house?
    One side of our house becomes absolutely covered in flies every day during the summer, leaving fly specks all over the siding.
    A

    Talstar P can be used to help control cluster flies 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
    Will Talstar P control the longed-horn beetle?
    I use Talstar P for the flower garden and it works wonders!
    A

    Talstar P is labeled for many beetles but not specifically for the long horned beetle.  However, after doing some research we have found many sites and government studies that list Talstar P as a form of treatment for the long horned beetle.

  • Asked by John from Beggs, Ok.
    04/05/2012
    Q
    Will Talstar P work well in a 30gal sprayer? and with granules?
    I see where it says to use a 1gal sprayer but will it work as well in larger sprayers? Also is it safe to use the concentrate and the granules at the same time or is that to high a concentration?
    A
    You can absolutely use Talstar P in a large 30 gallon sprayer. Just be sure you follow the correct usage rate for that much water. Talstar granules should be applied using a hand spreader or cart spreader and can be used in conjunction with the Talstar P.

    Q
    What can I do about a ladybug infestation already inside my home?
    A
    Talstar P applications to cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room, door frames, window frames and other areas where you see ladybugs emerging will help. You can also use a Fly Web light  to capture these nuisance insects as they seem to be attracted to light as well.
