    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.

    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.

    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.

    Q
    Will Talstar P kill water bugs?
    A
    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.

    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.

    Q
    What Talstar product is best for a termite pretreat?
    Also going to spray ground sterilizer. Which is best to do first?
    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 want to pre-treat before the slab is poured to control termites, Termidor SC would be the product of choice. Pre-slab and barrier treatments can last for up to 10 years for subterranean termite control.  

    If you are going to apply a ground sterilant you would do se after applying the Termidor SC to the soil.

    Q
    What if a dog came into contact with Talstar P while it was still wet?
    My dog didn't show apparent signs of illness, yet his coat was wet with a manure type odor and when wiped, there was a rust color that came off. The scent is still there a day later.
    A
    The smell and color are not from the Talstar P. Talstar P is a water based product that dries clear and is odorless. It seems like your dog did indeed roll in something that was possibly still damp from the Talstar application, but it is the actual item your pet rolled in (perhaps manure or fertilizer of some kind?) that you have noticed on your pet. We think a bath is in order to wash off any Talstar the dog may have on his coat and to get rid of whatever ever else he rolled in.

    Q
    What product would you recommend for crickets and spiders? Fruit flies/gnats and pantry moths?
    I would like to kill the crickets and spiders in my garage/basement. Also, want to set up a long lasting barrier or something that will kill them and keep them from coming in.
    A
    You mentioned four very different pests in your question. Spiders and crickets can be controlled using Talstar P. Talstar P is a great general use insecticide that can be applied indoors and outdoors to help get rid of and prevent most crawling insects. Fruit flies and pantry moths on the other hand will require you to locate the source of the infestation to get rid of the pests. We do have fruit fly traps as well as pantry moth traps but these traps are meant for monitoring purposes and will not get rid of the entire infestation. You can learn more about fruit fly control by reading our Fruit Fly Control Articles and Pantry moths by reading our Pantry Moth Control Articles. These articles will help you learn how to find and eliminate the infestation.

    Q
    My silver maple has sun scald, splitting bark with earwigs, and some borers. Will Talstar P help?
    I prefer to buy the most efficient, least expensive product. Thank you!
    A

    Sunscald that has caused the bark to split will often heal on its own in otherwise healthy trees. If you experience rapid temperature fluctuations at the end of winter and in early spring, then you may want to wrap trees that are sensitive to this condition to help prevent sunscald. Talstar P is a versatile inseticide concentrate that is safe for use on many ornamentals and is labeled for over 75 pests. Talstar P is also water-based, so it should not cause additional stress to the strees. You may also want to consult an arborist to be sure your trees are receiving enough water to recover from the bark split, and to check if it may need additional nutrients.

  • Asked by William from Villages Fl

    Q
    Do I have to remove thatch prior to Talstar P application for chinch bugs on a St Augustine lawn in FL?
    A

    Talstar P are one of the most effective chinch bug treatments on the market. Chinch bugs infest the base of grass plants and are often found in the thatch layer. Chinch bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the higher applications rates will be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the summer. It may also be necessary to remove the thatch layer if it exceeds 1 inch in thickness to allow the Talstar to penetrate down to the soil.

    If you have a few small spots the St. Augustine runners might fill it in this season (of course water, fertilizer, and lots of sunshine helps). If large portions of the lawn were damaged it will likely be late spring or later of next year before the lawn recovers. Very heavily damaged areas may need to be resodded.

    Q
    I sprayed this on my Meyer Lemon 2 weeks before it bloomed. Do I need to remove fruit?
    It didn't fruit until a couple weeks after spraying. I know this is not systemic and its not suppose to be absorbed into the plant so is there any harm in eating my lemons. I have since bought captian jacks with spinosad for this tree but Im wondering if I need to discard the fruit already on it.
    A
    Talstar P is not labeled to be used on edible plants. The manufacturer does recommend that you discard any fruit from the tree for this growing season if the tree was sprayed with Talstar P.
