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.

Talstar P should be applied 24 hours before rainfall or irrigation. After that point, you can irrigate your lawn on a normal schedule.
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.
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.
Talstar P Professional Insecticide can safely be applied to ornamentals, trees and lawns. You just want to avoid spraying directly on any blooms. We recommend treating early in the morning or in the evening.
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.
Talstar P Professional Insecticide cannot be applied to linens or fabrics.
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.
