    Q
    I have your Talstar, how often can it be used inside the house on carpeting/flooring without damage?
    A
    Talstar is a water based product and should not damage anything that water itself would not damage. According to the Talstar product label you should apply Talstar no more than once every 7 days. 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. Do not use as a space spray. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices.

    Q
    Can Talstar P be used with an IGR?
    Wooded 5 acre lawn surrounded by cattle ranch. Ticks and fleas major issue. Have both dogs and cats who roam - ie bring the beasties home. Animals treated heavily, what to do for yard? need good residual and rain resistance.
    A
    Talstar P can be applied with an IGR (insect growth regulator). It is safe for pets as long as they remain out of the area during treatment and return only when the surfaces have dried completely. It should not be applied where there are grazing animals such as cattle. It is labeled for ticks and fleas outside and offers a 30 day outdoor residual.
    For best results, allow 24 hours after outdoor application before expected rainfall.

  • Asked by B from Livermore
    03/29/2019
    Q
    Will Talstar kill frogs?
    If I spray with Talstar P, that will reduce all of the insects which is a plus, but will the spray create a barrier to prevent the frogs from crossing over to yard and/or kill them either instantly or delayed?
    A

    Talstar is an insecticide only and will not kill frogs, nor will it act as a barrier to prevent them from coming into the area.  Unfortunately, we do not know of any products that we carry which will do so.  You are correct, though, in that using Talstar will reduce the insect population in the area, which will cause it to be less attractive to the frogs.

  • Asked by Scott from Farmington, Il

    Q
    Do the chemicals have an expiration date?
    do the chemicals lose strength after awhile. I have some Talstar and Demand and was wondering if I need to purchase new due to having these bottles for about 4 yrs.
    A
    When stored in ideal conditions - out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight - most insecticides, Talstar and Demand included - will last for 5 years on the shelf. If yours have been properly stored, you do have some life left in your bottles!

  • Asked by Sharonne from Willis, Texas

    Q
    Will Talstar kill camel crickets?
    A

    Talstar P will kill camel crickets. Apply Talstar P as a crack and crevice or spot spray to areas where pests hide, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas. Do not use as a space spray. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices. We recommend treating the outside perimeter to help stop insect pests from coming indoors to start with. Apply Talstar P to a band of soil and vegetation 6 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to the structure. Also, treat the foundation of the structure to a height of 2 to 3 feet.

    Q
    I am looking for a liquid that can be added to a small outdoor fountain to repel mosquitos
    A
    You can spray Talstar around the exterior of the fountain for residual control. We would recommend using BTI Mosquito Dunks in the water. By using the Mosquito Dunks you are killing the larvae.

    I am buying my first power sprayer to start doing pest control for my neighbors.
    Do you use the same pesticides in the 50-gallon tank as you do for the normal hand sprayer?
    A
    Normally, yes, you would use the same products in both the pump sprayer and 50 gal tank. Be sure to review the product label, as sometimes there are different mixing ratios for 50 gal tank sprayers

  • Asked by Fred from Conover, Nc
    07/16/2019
    Q
    How is Talstar best used to get rid of millipedes?
    They come out in kitchen especially in the evening.
    A

    Millipedes are usually going to be present when there is a lot of moisture in the area. If you have a lot of mulch near your house you may want to consider raking it back at least six inches away from the house. Also trimming bushes so that you can see the soil beneath them and so they do not touch the house will help reduce soil moisture and stop the insects from gaining access to the house via the bushes.  Talstar P would be a great choice for this pest.  You would apply around the outside perimeter of the home (especially under and around eaves, decks, patios, and window shutters), and inside along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and other potential millipede harborages. We have also written an article with other tips that may help you with millipede control : Get Rid of Millipedes

  • Asked by Stephanie from Spokane Wa

    Q
    We have pine beetles all over our apartment building and they are coming inside, how can we get rid of them
    A
    Any beetles that are on the outside of the building trying to get in you can treat with a product like Talstar P. Talstar is a great general insecticide that dries clear, is odorless and covers beetles of all types and hundreds of other insects. You can spray it around the foundation of the home and around window and door frames they may be trying to come in through. You can also safely spray down the nearby trees and plants they may be coming from or harboring in. You typically spray Talstar at the rate of 1oz per gallon of water every 30-60 days depending on how the weather affects the products residual over time.

    Q
    How much time should I leave between applications of Talstar and a herbicide?
    I used barrier application to control fire ants around my house. I would also like to spray the weeds in this area. What is the recommended wait time before applying a herbicide to the same area?
    A

    There really is not time restrictions between applications of Talstar P (Talstar One) and an herbicide in the same area since they are different types of products.

    Q
    Is Talstar P Professional Insecticide safe to spray directly on hogs and horses?
    A

    Talstar P should not be applied to hogs or horses. It is safe to use around livestock as long as the animals aren’t grazing in the treated areas. After the application, you need to wait until the area is completely dry before letting the animals back onto the non-grazing treated areas.
