    Q
    What should be used around pond/lake areas to kill mosquitos?
    A
    Essentria IC3 is the product of choice when you need to treat for mosquitoes around a body of water.  Essentria IC3 is a flexible, broad-spectrum EPA FIFRA 25(b) exempt product and is organic compliant.  This means it is a very safe insecticide for use around your family and pets, but still very effective.  One of the best features of Essentria IC3 is that it has no aquatic toxicity.  This means you can apply near or over water for spiders, mosquitoes and other water dwelling pests with no worries about harming aquatic life.

    Q
    Can I spray Talstar around wall sockets?
    A

    You can spray Taslstar behind appliances, along baseboards, but not around the wall sockets. We suggest you use an insecticide dust such as Cimexa Dust. Cimexa Dust will last up to 10 years when applied to undisturbed areas like wall voids.

    Q
    How many gallons of finished product can i get from a 3/4 gallon bottle of concentrate?
    A
    Talstar typically is mixed at 1 ounce per gallon of water.  A 3/4 gallon jug is 96 ounces, so you could get 96 gallons of finished solution from one 3/4 gallon jug if you mixed at the normal rate of 1 ounce per gallon of water.

  • Asked by Suzy from New Orleans La
    11/06/2019
    Q
    Is Talstar effective against termites? How long?
    Is there a long-lasting product for termites?
    A

    Talstar P is labeled to treat for termites and lasts for about 5 years in the ground when trenching. A better option for subterranean termites would be non-repellents like Termidor SC or Taurus SC. Termidor and Taurus will last up to 10 years in the soil. Non-repellents work slower but are much more effective when treating a termite colony as they are able to be transferred through the entire colony therefore eventually eliminating the colony.

    Q
    Applying Talstar P to plants
    I have read many of the previously submitted questions, but there always seems to be a general, blanket statement provided in regard to applying Talstar P to plants. I still wonder if there are any plants, shrubs, bushes , ornamental bushes or flowers which can be adversely affected by applying Talstar P as specified per instructions. I know it is not to be used on edible foods.
    A
    There are certain plants of trees such as the Japanese red maple which we would caution you before applying any product. If in doubt on treating a certain plant you should treat one plant only or one small area of the plant with the Talstar before treating the whole plant. Wait at least three days to see the results before continuing.

    Q
    I am getting some mole traffic from my neighbors property. Is Talstar P effective grub control?
    South Carolina. Bermuda lawn.
    A

     

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is not labeled for grub worms and most likely will not provide satisfactory results when used to control them. We do have several products that are specifically labeled for grub worms on our website: Grub Worm Control. We also recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and inquire about the best time to start treatments for grubs in your region. In many parts of the country the grubs are already matured and they are emerging as adult beetles. For mole products and treatment information, pleae check out our article on How to Get Rid of Moles.

  • Asked by Cliff from Westchester County, Ny
    08/16/2014
    Q
    How do I get rid of the cloudy window effect yet maintain coverage for stink bugs?
    I live in NY and sprayed around all the windows including the screens & doors. I had the pump sprayer set on mist yet now all the windows have dried looking cloudy and are no longer nice and clear. I used the recommended 1 ounce to 1 gallon. How can I get the windows clean again without losing the protection against the coming stink bug attack in the fall? Please advise & thank you in advance.
    A
    We recommend that you only spray around the edges of the window frame to avoid wasting the product. Stink bugs will come in around the edges of the window so it is not effective in the middle of the window. The windows can be cleaned. The correct amount is Talstar P (Talstar One) is 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

  • Asked by Joyce from United States

    Q
    How can I get rid of my roaches?
    I bought Talstar and have been using it for 2 weeks. The roaches are getting worse instead of better. I also used Invict Gold bait. What am I doing wrong?
    A
    While Talstar will kill roaches that come in contact with it, it will not stop the problem. Make sure you are not baiting where you have sprayed. Also, be sure that you are only applying little green pea size dabs of bait and re baiting once a week. We would also recommend to include Gentol IGR Point Source. Gentrol Point Source is a special Roach control device that contains the Gentrol Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) hydroprene for 90-day control of roaches and other stored product pests. Activating Gentrol Point Source is as simple as squeezing the raised end of the plastic, adhesive-back device. This releases Gentrol IGR onto a filter paper. From there, it moves up to 75 square feet, damaging adult roaches and preventing them from reproducing.

  • Asked by Mark from Charleston, Sc

    Q
    When to apply mole cricket control?
    I believe I have an issue with mole crickets. There are smaller (about 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch wide) tunnels running through an area that is lower than the rest of the yard, and has lots of dead grass. I have been reading that one wants to apply a mole cricket treatment to kill the nymphs/younger mole crickets, but I'm not sure about timing. The weather in my area is in the south, and it varies a tremendous amount. 75 at the highest, and 40 or so at night. Any tips? What would you guys suggest? Should I use Talstar?
    A

    Talstar would be a great product to use for mole crickets and gives complete instructions on the product label for timing on the different stages though you should contact your local cooperative extension office to find out the best time to start spraying in your region.

    We live near a salty marsh and get numerous bites from these no seeums while working in the yard. I'm looking for a way to control them. Our yard is 1.3 acres.

    Yes, you could apply Talstar in the yard, trees, and shrubs. For the water you could put in BTI Mosquito dunks which will kill mosquito larvae.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P at 1 oz per gallon in an area that some will fall on my lawn without killing the grass?
    A
    Talstar is labeled to apply on turf, ornamentals, trees, and almost any other surface or plant.  It is our best selling product to spray on the yard and on shrubs, bushes, and trees for mosquitoes and other insects that harm grass and trees.  So you don't have to worry about it killing the grass.  The only thing you should not apply Talstar to is a garden with anything edible.

    Q
    What are the best products and time schedule to treat arbor vitae trees infected with Bag worms?
    A
    We recommend using Talstar P for the treatment of bagworms. You can learn more about how to eliminate bagworms by reading our article Bagworm Control.  Applications should start in April and continue monthly through June for bagworm control. Treatments should start around the time when the larva move out of the mother's bag and before they make their own bags.  Be sure foliage is sprayed thoroughly to the point of runoff to achieve adequate coverage

  • Asked by Mark from Maine

    Q
    FMC the manufacturer of Talstar does not recommend applying with a hose end sprayer. Is that because it's less effective?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is not labeled to be applied with hose end sprayer, because it is a professional grade product. You can apply with a hose end sprayer. The same application rates apply. Keep in mind using a hose end sprayer can be a little more difficult to calibrate than simply mixing 1oz per gallon water in a pump sprayer, but we have many customers that use the hose end sprayer application.
