    Q
    What product will safely kill caterpillars inside the home, as well as other common household pests all in 1?
    I live in NC and we've had a lot of rain lately; not sure if that has anything to do with it, but more and more I have noticed caterpillars crawling across my carpet in various parts of the house. In addition, which product would be best to kill these caterpillars and other pests outside the home and in the lawn?
    A
    Talstar P is our most popular general pest control product. Talstar P is labeled for caterpillars and is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.

    Q
    On a Stihl backpack blower, what meter setting is best to use to apply Talstar for mosquitoes?
    A

    As long as you are using the Talstar P at the proper dilution rate in the tank, the metering rate would just be dependent on how quickly you are walking during application.  Unfortunatley, we do not carry Stihl blowers so we cannot give you an exact answer.  However, we can thell you that with our Solo 451 blower, we suggest a metereing rate of 2 (from a range of 1-4) for a normal pace during application.  For most applications, you will mix 0.5-1 oz per gallon per 1,000 sq ft.

    No. Talstar should not be applied to any seats or furniture. You should instead use a product such as Sterifab. Sterifab is safe to use on areas where you will come into skin contact such as a car seat.

    Q
    Your best product for killing carpet beetles?
    A

    Please visit our Carpet Beetle Control Page.

    Vacuuming: Carpet beetle larvae like to feed in dark, undisturbed locations like closets, attics, basements, and storage areas. The wide availability of food sources for the larvae (including dust and lint, and pet hair) makes vacuuming the best way to ensure there is minimal food for the larvae to feed on. Vacuuming can also help to remove the larvae and adult beetles already in the home. Regular vacuuming and laundering of rugs, furniture, and linens can help to ensure the beetles are removed and have no food source. If you find a contaminated item, bag and remove this item from your home, if possible.

    Proper storage: Before storing silks, woolens, or furs, dry clean as the beetles are attracted to stains and soiled garments. Store in a well-sealed container, using mothballs. Mothballs can limit the beetle’s attraction to the wool or silk. Store pet food, dried meat, and other dried animal products in a well-sealed container.

    Insecticides: For things that cannot be washed or dry cleaned, insecticides are the best bet for prevention and eradication. Both Talstar P and Suspend SC are excellent products to use.

    Insecticides can be used for spot-treatments, as a boundary at the edges of rugs, under rugs, under furniture, walls and floors of closets, shelving, cracks, and lint or dust accumulating areas. Be careful around oriental rugs or other fabrics, as some insecticides can stain. Never spray clothing or bedding with insecticide, and always read instructions.

    Q
    Professional sprayed Talstar P in florida room along baseboards and windows.
    I had a carpenter ant problem in my florida room ceiling. Pest control guy sprayed all along the windows and baseboard. Before he sprayed I told him I had an infant that would be crawling in that room. I was very nervous, but he said not to be concerned, once the product dries. He made me feel like a weirdo. I waited a good month before I let anyone enter the room. I wanted to shampoo the carpets, because I am sure his sprayer got spray on the edge of carpet/baseboard. I called a few companies and they said if I shampooed the carpets the product would be useless. So, I never did. I did however, wipe the baseboards and doors. As a worried parent, is my child safe? We have to walk through this room to get in our back yard. She has already been crawling on the floor and probably have put her hands in her mouth afterwards. After a little research of half lives, it seems talspar p lasts a long time. So I am worried that there was a residual on the carpet, she touched it, than put fingers in her mouth. Please, any info will be greatly appreciated.
    A
    Talstar P is labeled to be pet and child safe once dry and one of our most popular general insecticides for inhome use. When Talstar P is applied as a crack and crevice treatment along baseboards, window frames and door entry points and had time enough time to dry, it will not pose any harm to human contact. This product is not labeled to be sprayed as a broadcast on carpeted areas inside the home, only applied as crack and crevice.  Talstar P does have a 90 day residual on the inside of the home, but if the areas where the product was applied has been wiped down with warm soapy water, the product has been removed and would not longer be effective.

    Q
    What ratio do you mix Talstar P to treat for termites?
    A

    Talstar P is labeled to treat for termites and lasts for about 5 years in the ground and works as a repellent, killing only those insects that come into contact with the treated area. A better option for subterranean termites non repellent termiticide such as Termidor SC or Dominion 2L. Termidor will last up to to 10 years in the soil and Dominion 2L will last 5-7 years. Non repellents work slower but much more effectively when treating a termite colony as they are able to be transferred thorought the entire colony therefore eventually elimating the colony. Talstar P will only repel the termites, not kill the entire colony.

    Q
    We have a sun conure (bird) in the house. How safe is Talstar P to use around him?
    We will be spraying the room he is in. We know he has to be removed when we spray, but how long before we can bring him back to that room safely.
    A
    Talstar P is very safe to use around children and pets once it is dry.  You are correct that you should remove the bird and any other animals and children from the room while you are performing the treatment.  Once the treatment is dry, which usually takes about 45 minutes, it is perfectly safe to place the bird and other pets back into the room.

    Q
    Can 30 ml of Talstar P kill broad mites?
    I know it's not listed for them but will it provide a quick knock down.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is mixed at 1 fl oz per gallon of water. It can be applied safely to ornamentals (nothing edible). While it might kill broad mites as well it is not labeled for them so we cannot recommend it for this use.

    Q
    Can my cat chew on grass after being treated with Talstar P by lawn service?
    A

    Please keep your pets out of the Talstar P treated area until dried. After the product is diluted there is only a small enough amount of active ingredient to harm small insects. If your cat were to nibble on a small area no harm should be posed. You may also want to consider having the service not treat where your cat may be nibbling.

    Q
    If I were to start my own exterminating company, what products would I need for indoors?
    I know Termidor for outside, but what for indoor treatment?
    A
    The selection of the proper product would depend on several different factors. What type of insects are your main concern? Are you doing clean outs or just preventative treatments? What state are you in? Do you need an immediate knockdown or residual control or both? Most professionals would not limit themselves to just one or two products because their clients will have very different needs. We will say that Talstar P is one of the most popular products on the market for indoor use because it dries clear, does not have an odor and has a very broad label and works well for a general insecticide.

    Q
    Will Talstar P kill powderpost beetles?
    It says it will kill beetles?
    A

    We do not recommend using Talstar P for powderpost beetles. The label does allow for this application in voids and galleries of damaged wood, but this would be a difficult applciation. Our most popular treatment for this pest is using Boracare on raw wood that is infested. If you need to treat finished wood such as wooden floors, then you would either need to strip the wood to treat it, or spot treat the individual holes using Jecta, which is a ready-to-use formulation of Boracare. We have more tips in our Treatment Guide for this pest here.

    Q
    Can a used garden sprayer be used to apply Talstar P?
    I've used my garden sprayer to apply Dominion 2L approximately 8 months ago. Can I use that same garden sprayer to now apply Talstar P or should I buy a new garden sprayer to apply the Talstar P?
    A
    You can absolutely use the same sprayer to apply the Talstar in as you did the Dominion. Just make sure to always triple rinse the unit in between each product you use.
