    Q
    Is Talstar P effective for fleas indoor and outdoors?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for the treatment of fleas outdoors only. It can only be applied to indoor cracks and crevices. Fleas will be on the open floor surfaces so it is important to apply a product such as Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR to those surfaces indoors for eradication.

    Q
    Will Talstar harm reptiles?
    A
    As long as the reptiles are out of the area while you are doing the actual application of the Talstar, it shouldn't effect them. You will most likely see a reduction in the reptile populations on your property though as you will be eliminating their food source (insects).

    Q
    I did use Talstar on the inside bottom of couch , will this hurt family
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled to be used on furniture, only as a crack and crevice treatment. The label reads to apply as a coarse, low pressure, crack and crevice or spot spray to areas where pests hide, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas.

    We recommend steam cleaning the furniture where the Talstar P has been applied to remove any residual. Please read label thoroughly for listed areas on where Talstar P is to be applied.

    Q
    Filling measuring reservoir on Talstar P 3/4 gallon bottle
    I've used the quart-size Talstar P container and now have the 3/4 gallon bottle of Talstar P. How do I fill the measuring reservoir on the larger bottle? Do I squeeze, tip the bottle, or?
    A
    The 3/4 gallon of Talstar comes with a tip and pour measuring device. This means that you simply tip the bottle towards the measuring device and fill to the correct line for your usage.

    Q
    Which insecticide is the most effective for camel crickets specifically?
    Hi, I see that your website offers an array of insecticides. I am targeting camelback crickets specifically (anything else that dies is a plus). How would you rank the insecticides (I plan on doing an indoor and outdoor spray) Demon WP, Bifen IT, and Tempo SC)? Not that price is an issue, but if I am going to to the exterior as well, it wouldn't hurt if the price isn't too hard on the wallet. Thanks in advance.
    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.

    Q
    Can I use talstar p on rugs for fleas?
    I already bought it from you then I saw a Q and A and you guys stated you don't want us to use it because it's a crack and crevice treatment.No good on rugs? Well i already bought it and the directions say it works for fleas. What do think? Can I mix it with precor?
    A

    You can mix Talstar P with Precor IGR for flea control. According to the new Talstar P product label you can make applications as spot or crack and crevice treatments to areas frequented by pets, such as under bedding, rugs, next to furniture. Vacuum prior to treatment.

    What this means is that you cannot broadcast spray your entire carpet with Talstar, you must limit the treatment to "spot" treatments (areas that 2ft x 2ft or less). If you only need to spot treat certain areas you can use Talstar for fleas. If you need to broadcast over entire carpeted rooms you should choose a product which is labeled for indoor broadcast sprays such as Onslaught or Permethrin SFR.

    Q
    Talstar for bad roach problem inside
    I wrote here about 6 weeks ago, explained my problem and ordered everything you said to the tune of $181.00. The Phantom leaves much to be desired. I still see lots of roaches. The MaxForce is a joke. I'd like to try Talstar P even though I already feel ripped off. Does it have a fast knockdown unlike the Phantom? Everywhere I look I see more roaches and it's driving me crazy. The NyGuard IGR apparently worked as I have thousands of crinkly winged roaches. All are alive and well.
    A
    Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide that also has a transfer effect and is especially useful for insects that are social or extra sensitive like ants, roaches or bedbugs. Talstar P on the other hand will have a faster knockdown rate and is a bit more versatile as it can be used in more areas and for a wider variety of insects, but it will only kill the roaches that contact the treated area, whereas the Phatom will help to kill the entire colony, as does the MaxForce FC Magnum.  Please be aware this does take time, it can take weeks or months to completely eliminate a roach infestation.  The NyGuard is only birth control to keep the roaches from reproducing and side effects of that are the crinkled look.  For more helpful hints on eliminating your infestation, take a look at our guide on How To Get Rid Of Roaches.

    Q
    what can i use for inside and outside for general insect kill
    I am currently on a quarterly spray but would like to do my own to save me money ,I would like to known what all in one product I could mix and apply that would kill most common insects and bugs that won't pets or leave a white residue on things. Also I would like mouse blocks that can be used in boxes and also just thrown under the house . Please show what your best options are in a concentrate to mix and use on a quarterly basis. Thanks
    A

    Talstar P is labeled for over 75 types of insects and our most popular insecticide for general pest control. Talstar P has a residual of 30 days outside (perimeter or broadcast spray) and 90 days inside the home(crack and crevice) Talstar One is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.

    For Mice control, depending on the level of infestation we recommend the Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Stations Case(12 Stations) with Fastrac Blox. These stations hold 1 bait blox and can be placed in corners where mice travel. Fastrac is a quick knockdown rodenticide with a Stop feed action after consuming lethal dose, usually within 12-48 hours.

    If you are needing a larger bait station, we recommend the Protecta Mouse Bait Station that can hold up to 4 standard size blox. These would work better for you under the home.

    Q
    Wasps in fascia of my home. Sprays don't work, should I fumigate attic? what product?
    A
    If you know where the nests are you can apply Tempo 1% dust. We recommned that you use a hand duster and apply a dust such as Tempo dust to the holes where the wasps are going in and out. The dust will help eliminate the wasps in the nest and any other wasps returning to the nest. Tempo dust will stay effective for several months as long as it is dry. We are not aware of a product that would eliminate the wasp pheromone to help stop wasps from returning to a particular area.  After dusting in the void where the wasps have a built a nest you can try spraying the siding with a product such as Talstar P. You can spray once a month and any wasp that lands on treated areas will be eliminated within about 24 hours which should stop new wasps from being able to build a nest.

    Pest Control-Products Outside of House
    I want to put some pest control outside around the house, in the brick crevices etc... An exterminator company came to the house last week offering a sale of $120 every 2 months to preventative control, for spiders, mice, whatever other bugs are outside. I just built my house which is outside of town in a subdivision, but across the street we have open, fields etc... I have purchased from this website before, and I figured I would give it a shot at doing it myself before paying those rates. What product would you recommend?

    Is Talstar the same product that professional exterminators use and how effective is it for controlling roaches
    A
    Talstar P is a professional product and it is used by many professional pest control operators to help eliminate roaches. It is also important to use a roach bait gel and an insect growth regulator as part of a roach control program. You can see these other products by looking at our roach control page or by looking at our Roach Control Kit #1.

    Will Talstar harm auto paint?

    Talstar is a waterbased product and will not usually harm any surface that would not be harmed by water alone. Having said that, Talstar has not been tested on auto paint as it is not labeled for this type of application.

    Q
    Can I spray Talstar directly onto the foliage of flowering plants for Japanese beetles?
    A

    Yes, Talstar P Professional Insecticide can be applied to any bushes, shrubs, trees, landscaped areas as well as flowering plants. However, you should minimize the spray on the actual flowering plants as you do not want it to expose the product to any bees that help with pollination. It is recommended that you spray when pollinators are not active, either in the early morning or late evening.

    Q
    Can I add dishwashing liquid to Talstar One to control roaches on pet cages?
    A

    We do not recommend that you treat the cages with Talstar P and dish soap. You could use a cleaner and water to wash the pet cages. Talstar P is mixed with water and applied to the cracks and crevices indoors and other areas listed on the product label.

  • Asked by Pat from Douglasville, Ga (house Is In Forest Park, Ga)
    09/16/2013
    Q
    I purchased Talstar P for house with fleas, and it did not get rid of them.
    I sprayed my rental property with Talstar P for fleas, and it did nothing to get rid of them. I sprayed inside and outside the house. I purchased this product because it was rated as very good for fleas, roaches, and other types of pests. Any suggestions? At this time, the house is empty. My tenant moved out 1st of September, and before I can offer it for rent again, I have to get rid of the fleas.
    A
    You should first note that Talstar P should not be used indoors for flea control because it is not labeled for broadcast applications indoors. For indoor use we usually recommend a product such as Ultracide. Ultracide contains an insecticide to knockdown the jumping, biting adults and an insect growth regulator to stop the growth pattern and sexual development of the immature flea larva.
    It is our recommendation and industry standard that you vacuum immediately before the application of Ultracide and every day or every other day after the application for the next two weeks. Vacuums can physically remove a decent percentage of flea eggs that are in the carpet, along with much of the organic crud that the flea larvae feed on. A critical part of the diet of the larva is dried blood, present there as fecal material from the fleas that are on the pets. Wherever the pets spend time they will shed the fecal matter and the eggs, so it is extremely important that you focus on these potential hot spots where the pets sleep. A vacuum also will remove a small percentage of larvae, but the larva is pretty tenacious, and will wrap around the carpet fibers down there at the base of the pile, and hold on for dear life as the vacuum passes by. The pupa is even tougher to physically remove, for it uses fibers as part of its "cocoon". But, the vacuum will stimulate the flea adults still in their pupa form to quickly emerge as the adult, and at this point perhaps be sucked up in the vacuum. Even if they are not removed by the vacuum, at least they now are exposed and susceptible to your treatment. After two weeks most infestations require that you do a second application of the Ultracide and continue with the vacuuming.
