    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.

    Q
    Can Talstar P be used in a Turfco Rideon Sprayer/Spreader?
    Can I use TalStar P with the Turfco Rideon Sprayer? If so, what is the rate? It has an 18G tank and treats approximately 1.46A wit each fill.
    A

    Yes, you can use Talstar P in a pull behind tank sprayer.  Talstar P (Talstar One) is mixed at 1 ounce per gallon of water.  For example, if you are mixing up 18 gallons of solution at a time you would mix in 18 ounces of Talstar P (Talstar One) into the 18 gallons of water.

    Q
    How do I treat indoors with Talstar P Professional Insecticide for a flea infestation?

    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.

    Q
    My car is infested with stink bugs. How should I use Talstar P on a vehicle?
    A
    Talstar P is not really specifically labeled for treatment in cars.  You cannot apply the product to any seats or anywhere that you come into contact with.  You could only apply it to cracks and crevices and under seats.  We feel that an aerosol can would be easier to apply to a car and just as effective.  We would recommend D-Force HPX Aerosol and apply it to the same areas.

    Q
    I have Talstar P and have used Ortho Bug-B-Gon, can I use that hose end sprayer and how much do I put in?
    I figured about 1/3 teaspoon, am I close or way off?
    A
    You can use Talstar P in a hose end sprayer as long as the hose end sprayer can be calibrated to spray the correct usage rate as specified on the product label. Most folks use the 1 oz of product to 1 gallon of product rate for outdoor insect control.

    Q
    My apple tree has a carpenter ant nest.
    If Talstar P should not be used on fruit trees, what is safe to use and eliminate the carpenter ants? If Talstar P is used to kill the carpenter ants on the fruit tree, is the fruit safe to eat after one year from using Talstar P.?
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) cannot be used on an apple tree. We would recommend using the Carpenter Ant Kit # 1. It has a granular and a sugar bait. This can be placed in areas around the tree. The ants will take food back to the colony and eradicate it.

    Q
    What's a good treatment for around perimeter of the house in early spring?
    With warmer weather forecasted in central PA, it usually means some pre-spring activity is certain to happen, especially ants, flying ants, and horse flies and such.
    A

    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.

    Q
    What is the best insecticide concentrate for North Texas?
    Get a lot of centipedes, looks like worms, and pill bugs. I live in Dallas Fort worth Texas. What would be the best Insecticide concentrate for my home? Talstar I was thinking might be good.
    A

    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.

    Q
    I have Mealybugs on my Hibiscus plants. How much Talstar Pshould I use in a 32 oz spray bottle?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) rate is 0.5 to 1.0 fl oz per gallon of water.  For smaller amounts of water such as a quart you would just use ¼ of that.  It must be applied in a pump sprayer to be used correctly not a trigger sprayer like a 409/Windex bottle.

    Q
    When can you clean the floors after the inside of your house has been sprayed with Talstar?
    With that question: does cleaning the floor remove any residue left after it's dry? And if the floor gets wet where the spray was dry is it bad for young children and pets?
    A

    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.
