    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.

    Q
    Will this work to kill Pollila or wood moth larvae?
    A
    We are not familiar with wood moths or Pollila. We did attempt to look them up with no success. We can tell you that Talstar P is not labeled for wood moths or Pollila. Perhaps these insects are not a pest species in the United States?

  • Asked by Leslee from North Ga Mountains
    05/10/2018
    Q
    Would I use Talstar P or Tempo SC for gnats?
    A

    Talstar P and Tempo SC Ultra are very good products for gnat control. The biggest difference between them is that they have two different active ingredients. They are both great insecticides and can be alternated so that there is no pest resistance built up. Be sure to inspect the lawn for any ways to control moisture build-up such as eliminating standing water and trimming trees and shrubs to allow moist soil to dry.

  • Asked by Richard from Sanford Nc

    Q
    What do I use to kill the ground bees that come up every spring?
    A

    Ground bees, also known as digger bees, can be very difficult to control no matter what product you use and they most likely will come back to your property year after year unless you do your part to alter your property to make it unfavorable to the bees. Ground bees prefer dry soils with thin grasses so irrigating the area frequently and correcting any issue that causes your grass to be thin will help deter the bees from nesting. In areas where you do not have grass, a layer of mulch will help deter the bees from nesting. Ground bees are solitary bees and are not very aggressive and are known to be a beneficial insect which is why you will not find any products specifically labeled for this type of bee. Talstar P can help provide some level of control but it will not get rid of all of the ground bees on your property. You should use Talstar P at a 1 oz of product to 1 gallon of water for a 1,000 sq ft area ratio. This will give you the fastest knockdown and the longest lasting residual. Talstar P does not offer an instant knockdown but will kill insects that come into contact with treated areas over a short period of time.
