    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.

    Q
    Will Talstar One work in the garage to kill both adult fleas and eggs?
    Our cat used to sleep in the garage. I noticed he was scratching frequently so I applied a spot on flea treatment. All the fleas jumped off him and infested our garage. Every time we come in from the garage we track them into the house. The cat now lives in an outdoor house and we've bombed the garage twice to no avail. Will Talstar One work in the garage to kill both adult fleas and eggs? If not, what should we use?
    A
    Talstar would not be tbe best choice for fleas.  Talstar is a great product for almost any other insect and can be used indoors and outdoors safely.  However, for treatment of fleas the talstar does not have an IGR (insect growth regulator) which is important for the treatment of fleas.  We suggest one of our best selling products for fleas called Ultracide.  It is a product made only for the treatment of fleas and has both an adulticide and an IGR for the treatment of maturing fleas.  It should work great in your garage.  You should treat every 14 days until the problem is gone.

    Q
    What should I use for a heavy infection spidermites in 20 ft tall junipers?
    junipers 20ft tall how to best controll galveston tx.
    A
    Talstar works well for both the mature and the immature spider mites. Talstar provides optimal spider mite control when applied during spring to mid-summer. Higher application rates and/or more frequent treatments may be required for acceptable spider mite control during mid- to late-summer. The addition of a surfactant or horticultural oil may increase the effectiveness of Talstar. Talstar applications may be rotated with those of other products  that have different modes of action in control programs that are designed  to manage resistance by two-spotted spider mites. Consult your local Cooperative Extension Service for resistance management recommendations in your region.

    Q
    Would the effectiveness of Termidor be effected in any way if I use Talstar as a perimeter treatment around the exterior of the home?
    If a home has been treated with Termidor for termites (a non-repellent termiticide), would it be an issue to do a perimeter treatment (3 feet up and out) with Talstar P (a repellent termiticide)?
    A

    No, using Talstar as a perimeter spray 3ft up and 3ft out from the home will not affect the Termidor SC as long as the Termidor has had time to bond to the soil after 24 hours. Mix Talstar at 1oz per gallon of water and apply over 1,000 sq ft.

    Q
    Does Talstar P kill bedbugs?
    A

    Talstar P is labeled for bedbugs. According to the product label, it should not be the only product that you use for bedbug control. We recommend that you treat with the items in one of our Bedbug Kits as the kits multiple products needed for treatment. Please take a few moments to review our article,' How to Get Rid of Bedbugs' (that also includes videos) for more information on treating bedbugs.

    Q
    Is Talstar P really working?
    I purchased the Talstar P product and mixed it by instruction/video provided. Although, I spray the product directly on a plant infested by aphids and they just laugh at me and continue on their business. Am I missing something?
    A
    Talstar does not offer an instant knockdown but it does offer a long term residual. Talstar can take several hours to kill insects when used as directed on the product label.

    Q
    When can I apply Talstar P for mosquitoes?
    I sprayed CY Kick CS & Nyguard yesterday for ants, ticks, fleas, and spiders. Can I apply Talstar P for mosquitoes? Is there one product that would address all of these effectively?
    A
    Both Cykick and Talstar will kill most common pest including Mosquitoes. The biggest difference is that Cykick is Microencapsulated and may take longer to kill the pest, Talstar will kill more quickly.

    Q
    Settlement and effectiveness
    Could Talstar P settle in its bottle after open? Mine did and become very watery like milk. It is stored in garage away from direct sun, caps closed. In this watery state, is it still effective? It used to work very effectively before the settlement happened.
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) has a shelf life of 3-5 years. Talstar P is a beige liquid. Settling can occur within any insecticide. We would recommend contacting us with the lot number and we can find out when it was made. Our phone number is 866-581-7378 and business hours are 9 AM-5PM EST.

  • Asked by Daniel from Norco
    05/24/2015
    Q
    Does Talstar kill spider mites and can it be sprayed after oil or sulfur has been sprayed?
    Is Talstar ok to use plants have been sprayed with horticultural oil or sulfur?
    A
    We would recommend doing the application of Talstar P before doing an application of horticultural oil or sulfur. This will provide the residual for the pests, and the other products will help with killing them as well. Spraying Talstar P over either one of these will likely decrease the effectiveness of the oil and/or sulfur.

    Q
    Can Talstar P be applied at a high pressure or will it break down the molecular structure of the chemical?
    A
    Talstar P should not be used in a high pressure sprayer. Most recommended insecticide sprayers use a range of 30-150 PSI. Higher range PSI will tend to break down the insecticide.

    Q
    Does Talstar P create a barrier somehow to keep my neighbors' mosquitoes from coming to my yard?
    A

    Talstar P is not a repellent to keep insects out of the area, it is only to kill the ones that land/crawl on a treated surface to receive a lethal dose.  It is great to use to help kill any, the key is to apply to the underside of leaves as that is where the adults lay during the day.  To repel mosquitoes from an area you could use a product called Mosquito Barrier.

    Q
    Can you spray Talstar P on the couch? It appears that our dog brought ticks into the house and we are finding them in one room around a couch.
    I realize now that I need to spray an IGR (just ordered Archer) and have read that it is okay to spray the IGR on the couch. If I mix the Archer IGR with the Talstar P, can that still be sprayed on the couch, or just an IGR mixture?
    A

    Talstar P CANNOT be applied to anything that you will come into prolonged skin contact with, so you cannot apply it to furniture.  It should be applied to cracks and crevices and perimeter of the rooms only.  For treating sensitive areas like your furniture, you should use Steri-Fab which is labeled for ticks and fleas as well as many other pests and can be applied to furniture, mattresses, pet beds, and all other sensitive areas. Below is a great article on treating indoors and the products that we would recommend for treatment inside the home for fleas and/or ticks.

  • Asked by John from Necedah Wisconsin

    Q
    What do I use to eliminate ants and small (1/16 in) hard shelled black bugs.
    I live in zip code 54646 in sandy soil. Some ants are beginning to gather under my wooden jealousy windows, on the vinyl sill. I can't identify the type of ant, I just want to get rid of them. I also find the hard shelled bugs in different places of my house. What product can I use to get rid of these ants and hard shelled bugs?
    A
    It is very hard to make an accurate recommendation if we are not sure what we are treating. Talstar P will treat for ants and other types of insects like the ones you are describing. You want to spray the perimeter of your home 2-3 up the side and 2-3 feet out. On the inside make applications to cracks, crevices and entry points. Your Local Cooperative Extension Office may be able to shed light on what type of pest you are dealing with.

    Q
    What should I use on pine beetles infestation? I have infestation in a lot of trees?
    A

    Unfortunately there is no easy solution when it comes to pine beetles. Infected trees should be cut down (before the newly hatched beetles fly out of the trees in the spring/summer) and the wood burned or chipped, while other still healthy trees should be sprayed annually to protect them. Because of the natural boring behavior of the beetle they are protected from topically applied insecticides and systemic insecticides (those injected into the tree or applied as a root drench) have proven ineffective for pine beetle infestations. Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a synthetic pyrethroid like Talstar. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations. You should contact your local cooperative extension office to find out the best time to start spraying in your region.

  • Asked by Willie from Fort Worth, Tx

    Q
    What granule or liquid can I use to get rid of lawn pests?
    Such as sod grub worms, chinch bugs, mosquitoes in the grass? Fleas and ticks as well. You can't enjoy being outside. I have a lawn sprinkler system.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) can be used for everything except grubs if you have those and not sod webworms.  For grubs you would need a product like Merit in granule or liquid form.  For mosquitoes the key is applying Talstar to the underside of leaves of trees and bushes.  For fleas and ticks as well as mosquitoes you can also add an insect growth regulator like Nyguard IGR.
