    Q
    Professional sprayed Talstar P in florida room along baseboards and windows.
    I had a carpenter ant problem in my florida room ceiling. Pest control guy sprayed all along the windows and baseboard. Before he sprayed I told him I had an infant that would be crawling in that room. I was very nervous, but he said not to be concerned, once the product dries. He made me feel like a weirdo. I waited a good month before I let anyone enter the room. I wanted to shampoo the carpets, because I am sure his sprayer got spray on the edge of carpet/baseboard. I called a few companies and they said if I shampooed the carpets the product would be useless. So, I never did. I did however, wipe the baseboards and doors. As a worried parent, is my child safe? We have to walk through this room to get in our back yard. She has already been crawling on the floor and probably have put her hands in her mouth afterwards. After a little research of half lives, it seems talspar p lasts a long time. So I am worried that there was a residual on the carpet, she touched it, than put fingers in her mouth. Please, any info will be greatly appreciated.

    Talstar P is labeled to be pet and child safe once dry and one of our most popular general insecticides for inhome use. When Talstar P is applied as a crack and crevice treatment along baseboards, window frames and door entry points and had time enough time to dry, it will not pose any harm to human contact. This product is not labeled to be sprayed as a broadcast on carpeted areas inside the home, only applied as crack and crevice.  Talstar P does have a 90 day residual on the inside of the home, but if the areas where the product was applied has been wiped down with warm soapy water, the product has been removed and would not longer be effective.

    Talstar P cannot be used on any type of edible vegetation. Cyonara Lawn Yard and Garden would be labeled to do so and to treat grasshoppers.

    Q
    What ratio do you mix Talstar P to treat for termites?
    A

    Talstar P is labeled to treat for termites and lasts for about 5 years in the ground and works as a repellent, killing only those insects that come into contact with the treated area. A better option for subterranean termites non repellent termiticide such as Termidor SC or Dominion 2L. Termidor will last up to to 10 years in the soil and Dominion 2L will last 5-7 years. Non repellents work slower but much more effectively when treating a termite colony as they are able to be transferred thorought the entire colony therefore eventually elimating the colony. Talstar P will only repel the termites, not kill the entire colony.

    Q
    We have a sun conure (bird) in the house. How safe is Talstar P to use around him?
    We will be spraying the room he is in. We know he has to be removed when we spray, but how long before we can bring him back to that room safely.
    A
    Talstar P is very safe to use around children and pets once it is dry.  You are correct that you should remove the bird and any other animals and children from the room while you are performing the treatment.  Once the treatment is dry, which usually takes about 45 minutes, it is perfectly safe to place the bird and other pets back into the room.

    Q
    Can 30 ml of Talstar P kill broad mites?
    I know it's not listed for them but will it provide a quick knock down.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is mixed at 1 fl oz per gallon of water. It can be applied safely to ornamentals (nothing edible). While it might kill broad mites as well it is not labeled for them so we cannot recommend it for this use.

    Q
    Can my cat chew on grass after being treated with Talstar P by lawn service?
    A

    Please keep your pets out of the Talstar P treated area until dried. After the product is diluted there is only a small enough amount of active ingredient to harm small insects. If your cat were to nibble on a small area no harm should be posed. You may also want to consider having the service not treat where your cat may be nibbling.

    Q
    If I were to start my own exterminating company, what products would I need for indoors?
    I know Termidor for outside, but what for indoor treatment?
    A
    The selection of the proper product would depend on several different factors. What type of insects are your main concern? Are you doing clean outs or just preventative treatments? What state are you in? Do you need an immediate knockdown or residual control or both? Most professionals would not limit themselves to just one or two products because their clients will have very different needs. We will say that Talstar P is one of the most popular products on the market for indoor use because it dries clear, does not have an odor and has a very broad label and works well for a general insecticide.

    Q
    Will Talstar P kill powderpost beetles?
    It says it will kill beetles?
    A

    We do not recommend using Talstar P for powderpost beetles. The label does allow for this application in voids and galleries of damaged wood, but this would be a difficult applciation. Our most popular treatment for this pest is using Boracare on raw wood that is infested. If you need to treat finished wood such as wooden floors, then you would either need to strip the wood to treat it, or spot treat the individual holes using Jecta, which is a ready-to-use formulation of Boracare. We have more tips in our Treatment Guide for this pest here.

    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.
