    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.

    Q
    Is Talstar P safe to use with pet reptiles and a fish tank in the house?
    A

    Since aquatic life such as reptiles can be sensitive to insecticides, we do not recommend applying Talstar in any rooms while these animals are present, or in their habitats. It should be fine to use Talstar in other rooms where these animals are not kept.

  • Asked by Timothy from Houston, Tx

    Q
    Can you still use Talstar after six years if it has been properly stored indoors in a climate-controlled area?
    A

    The general rule of thumb for insecticide concentrates such as Talstar P is that they are good for about 3-5 years from the date of purchase as long as they have been stored at room temperature.  If your Talstar is six years old, it certainly would not hurt anything if you wanted to try to use it, but if you find that it is not working as well as it used to, it may be time for some new product.  You may also want to speak with the manufacturer directly to see what they would recommend.  You can reach FMC at 800-321-1362.

    Q
    i have crane flys in my yard how fast will talstar kill them,and when is the best time of year to treat the
    is a good time to treat for larva so they don't hatch.
    A

    Talstar should be used early to mid season to control the larvae of crane flies. This application should be made between August-February during times when the ground is not frozen. If treatments are made in March-April, they may only provide supression. You can consult with your local cooperative extension office for details on timing of application in your area specifically.

    Q
    How often are the soil treatments when using Talstar P (Talstar One) for termite protection?
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) 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. If you are looking for a termite treatment that lasts longer, we would recommend Termidor SC. This product lasts for 10 years in the soil. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Q
    What is the best product for mosquito control?
    I use a power backpack sprayer/mister.
    A

    Talstar works great for mosquito control and it can be used in your mister. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or where you are trying to provide relief.  It should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well which is where the mosquitoes hang out during the heat of the day.  Talstar should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.

  • Asked by Nicole from Orlando, Fl
    01/13/2015
    Q
    Can Talstar be used to get rid of ticks inside my home? I have small brown ticks crawling up the wall.
    Would I spray the entire carpet and let it dry?
    A
    Talstar is labeled for ticks and can be applied to indoor cracks and crevices only. It should NOT be applied as an open broadcast on the floor surfaces. How long it takes the ticks to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the tick as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Typically, it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die. It can take several weeks for you to stop seeing ticks indoors because the ticks like to stay hidden which also means they could be staying out of treated areas and eggs may hatch out prolonging the infestation. We recommend doing follow up treatments every two weeks at the highest usage rate of 1 oz Talstar of product per gallon of water until you do not see any ticks.

    Talstar P will kill water bugs, roaches, and most common crawling and flying insects that come into contact with the direct spray or the residual, however you should use additional methods of control for roaches, such as eliminating food and water sources and exclusion. See our Roach Control Guide for more information about how to Prevent and Treat these insects.

  • Asked by Janie from Springfield Mo.

    Q
    How long will Talstar P remain effective once I have mixed up a batch of it in the sprayer bottle?
    I am also wondering if I can add some garlic oil concentrate to the Talstar without hurting it's effectiveness. Trying to get rid of mosquitoes in the yard.
    A
    We recommend to use mixed solution within 24 hours of mixing. To ensure maximum effectiveness. We are not familiar with garlic oil extract. We would recommend mixing ExciteR in with Talstar to help provide a more swift intense kill.
