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.
Talstar P is manufactured in New York.
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.
Talstar P is mixed at one ounce of product to one gallon of water for lawn and turf application for mosquitoes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
