    Q
    What product should I use for prevention instead of what an exterminator uses?
    I do not want to have to have a service contract with an exterminator, but I'd also rather not wait to see bugs in my house. They would spray stuff outside the house, and then inside the house. While I am sure they handed me something that said it, I am also sure its exterminator grade, and I can not buy it. Is there something you would recommend that I can spray the same way, as an amateur, or do you disagree with the preventative spraying?
    A
    We do carry and sell all of the same products professional pest control operators use. Unless you live in a restricted state, you can purchase and use the same products. (restricted states are listed on each individual product page on our site.) Talstar P would a great all around insecticide for you to use indoors and outdoors for preventative pest control. Talstar P kills over 75 different insect pests and has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you have sprayed it. Plus, Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and will not break down easily with rainfall. We also recommend that you use IPM or Integrated Pest Management to make the environment around your home unsuitable for insects. You can read more about IPM by reading our article : Integrated Pest Management IPM

    Q
    Do you have an alternative to Talstar P that can be shipped to CT?
    Looking for an alternative to Talstar P as I live in CT and it can not be shipped here. Interested in controlling the same wide varities of insects/pests that Talstar P does. Thanks.
    A

    Unfortunately the state of Connecticut has limited most of the products out there on the market these days that can be shipped into the state without having a license to purchase them. Pest Xpert Home Barrier would be one option of a comparable insecticide spray to Talstar that could be used in CT.  An all natural option that works similarly is Essentria IC3 and can cover a wide range of pests and usage areas like the Talstar as well.

    Q
    My car is infested with stink bugs. How should I use Talstar P on a vehicle?
    A
    Talstar P is not really specifically labeled for treatment in cars.  You cannot apply the product to any seats or anywhere that you come into contact with.  You could only apply it to cracks and crevices and under seats.  We feel that an aerosol can would be easier to apply to a car and just as effective.  We would recommend D-Force HPX Aerosol and apply it to the same areas.

    Q
    My apple tree has a carpenter ant nest.
    If Talstar P should not be used on fruit trees, what is safe to use and eliminate the carpenter ants? If Talstar P is used to kill the carpenter ants on the fruit tree, is the fruit safe to eat after one year from using Talstar P.?
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) cannot be used on an apple tree. We would recommend using the Carpenter Ant Kit # 1. It has a granular and a sugar bait. This can be placed in areas around the tree. The ants will take food back to the colony and eradicate it.
