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.
No, Talstar will not harm your impatiens. It is safe to apply to any plants that are not edible.
We would not recommend treating the inside of the home with Talstar P for flea control. When used indoors, it is only labeled for a crack and crevice application. We recommend that you treat with the products in our Indoor Flea Kit. Also, please take a few moments to read our guide on How To Get Rid of Fleas for more helpful information.
Once you have added Talstar to the water for your mixed solution it should be used within 24 hours. It is not recommended to leave any solution in a sprayer for longer than that as it will loose effectivness.
Talstar P is not labeled to be applied to anything edible. We would not recommend eating any tomatoes from a plant that came into contact with it.
You can prevent ants, flies and other insects from entering your home by applying a long lasting residual product such as Talstar. Talstar kills over 75 different insects and is safe to use indoors and outdoors, is gentle on plants, is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall. We also suggest you use Integrated Pest Management or IPM. IPM is a step by step approach that helps you identify the pest and determine why that pest is there, and then determine how to exclude the pest in the future. Please read the IPM article to learn how to successfully stop pests before they become a problem.
Talstar P is a great choice for general pest control. Keep in mind that earthworms are beneficial and will not be listed on any insecticide labels. Another excellent option for a climate with very hot summers would be Suspend Polyzone, which is encapsulated in a polymer layer for better longevity in heat and sunlight. You may also want to take a few moments to review our General Pest Prevention Guide for more tips and information.
Talstar is meant to be applied to cracks and crevices not as a broadcast to floors. If you do mop an area that Talstar has been applied, then you could potentially take the product up and Talstar would need to be re applied.
Talstar P (Talstar One) is not labeled for parasites. We apologize but we do not carry anything for for intestinal parasites/parasites.
