    Q
    I've read conflicting responses as to timing of watering - wait or water immediately after Talstar application
    I'm using the liquid version on St Augustine grass to kill chinch bugs in lawn. Sometimes it seem that you suggest waiting 6 hours before rain or watering. Other times it seems that you say water in immediately after application 0.25 to .5 inches.
    A

    When you are using Talstar P (Talstar One) to treat for subsurface insects such as mole crickets, chinch bugs, etc., you will to water in after application per the product label.  When applying as pest control product for surface pests, you will wait to water at least 24 hours after application.

  • Asked by Pete from Oviedo

    Q
    Can Talstar P be sprayed on door handles?
    I have multiple French doors that lead in/out of the home. They are double open doors with a separation/crevice between them. After spraying the crevices, the door handles and areas adjacent to the handles are affected. Once dried is it safe for hands to contact these areas and for those same hands to eat foods without washing? I have little kids that enter/exit these doors and may not always wash their hands prior to eating.
    A

    It would be recommended to remove any overspray of Talstar P Professional Insecticide from the door handles as this is not a labeled area for use.  You can do so with warm water and soap.  It is best to set your sprayer to a pin stream when needing to apply around door frames/hinges to prevent overspray to nontarget areas.

    Q
    How do I apply Talstar P for termite control on a block house in Florida?
    We need to treat a limited amount of wood in the roof rafters.
    A

    Talstar P Professional Insecticide would not be recommended for use if you need to treat wood directly.  It only sits on the surface of wood and would not penetrate.  It used to be used as a perimeter treatment to the soil in a trench around the home until non repellent products like Termidor SC were developed.  For treating wood directly, a better option would be Bora-Care, either sprayed or painted onto the rafters.  We have great guides for treating both subterranean and drywood termites that would be helpful to review as well.

  • Asked by Adam
    06/21/2019
    Q
    Can I use Talstar P in the wind, why not if so?
    Is the reason Talstar P should not be used in the wind is that the vapors kill the insects or is it because the wind can cause the chemical to land on our skin and eyes?
    A

    Be sure to apply Talstar P Professional Insecticide on a day with little wind present to avoid drift to unwanted locations/unlisted areas (including on the applicator). We do offer a Basic Safety Kit for protective gear.

  • Asked by Adam from Statesboro, Ga
    06/24/2019
    Q
    How is Talstar P Professional Insecticide used for ant control in the yard? I have a backpack sprayer and mist blower.
    A

    When using Talstar P Professional Insecticide for ant control, mix 1 fl oz per gallon of water, locate and treat ant nests, and trails around doors and windows and other places where ants have been observed or are expected to forage. Spray the exterior perimeter foundation 2 to 3 ft up and 2 to 3 ft out from the foundation. For ant control in the lawn, mix at the same 1 fl oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft.

    For treating Fire Ants, the best control is obtained by a broadcast application along with mound drenches. Apply broadcast treatments at 0.6 to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Treat mounds by applying 1 fl oz Talstar P Professional per mound in 1 to 2 gallons water by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat 3 feet out around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12”. Treat mounds with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 - 80?F) or in the early morning or late evening hours.

    Please review the Application Directions Ant Control on page 4 of the product label

  • Asked by Suzy from New Orleans La
    11/06/2019
    Q
    Is Talstar effective against termites? How long?
    Is there a long-lasting product for termites?
    A

    Talstar P is labeled to treat for termites and lasts for about 5 years in the ground when trenching. A better option for subterranean termites would be non-repellents like Termidor SC or Taurus SC. Termidor and Taurus will last up to 10 years in the soil. Non-repellents work slower but are much more effective when treating a termite colony as they are able to be transferred through the entire colony therefore eventually eliminating the colony.
