    Q
    Should I use Talstar P to get rid of bird mites coming in through bathroom vent? I have removed the bird nest.
    I tried setting off a bugmax fogger and I still see them crawling around. I need help on what I should use to kill them asap...
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled to treat for mites in general and would not be recommended.  For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites.

    Q
    Can I mix Talstar with essentria ic3?
    A
    Both Talstar and Essentria IC3 are residual sprays. We do not see why you would need to mix them together. Depending on what you are treating, you can mix in an insect growth regulator with either talstar or Essentria.

    Q
    I am looking for a liquid that can be added to a small outdoor fountain to repel mosquitos
    A
    You can spray Talstar around the exterior of the fountain for residual control. We would recommend using BTI Mosquito Dunks in the water. By using the Mosquito Dunks you are killing the larvae.

    Q
    Is this effective against bird mites?
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled for mites in general and would not be recommended for this use as it is specific to the types of mites it treats, ie spider and clover mites in/around homes and lawns and also mites in animal facilities only.  Onslaught which will give you a wider usage range indoors and is actually labeled for mites. Both will kill them and both can be used anywhere except edible vegetation outdoors. Please review our article on How To Control Bird Mites.

    Q
    How do I get rid of what looks to be springtails in my tub and back door?
    A
    Please check out our article "How to get Rid of Springtails" for a play by play for treating springtails. You REALLY want to make sure you are using a residual insecticide like Talstar P along the cracks and crevices, paying close attention to areas that may contain moisture. You also want to use a dust like Delta dust in wall voids.

    Q
    Help, with outside pest control?
    I just bought 2 acres of heavily wooded property and where we live fleas, flies, ticks, snakes,mosquitoes and spiders are a problem basically everything crawly its the woods what can or should I spray outside to make sure my children don't get "eat up" by anything and everything the pest listed are some of mine main concerns
    A
    For the insect control we would recommend Talstar P. Talstar P is a Multi-Insecticide with bifenthrin is one of the most trusted and widely-used insecticides by pest control professionals today. The name Talstar P/Talstar One means one professional solution for everything: Talstar insecticide kills over 75 insect pests and can be used for indoor pest control, outdoor pest control, food handling areas, turf and ornamental treatments, in the yard as a yard spray to treat fleas or other yard pests, and even for termite control! Talstar has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it. Plus, Talstar One is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall. For snake control we recommend using Snake away which is a repellent. Make sure though that you leave one side of the treated area open so that any snakes can leave the area you are treating.

    Q
    What is the best product for fleas infestation on dry lawn, dirt perimeter of house?
    What is the best flea fighter for outdoor use on dry lawn, dirt surrounding the house? Also, please advise a product for indoor use on carpet and bare floor.
    A
    The best products for flea control outdoors would be Talstar P mixed with NyGuard IGR. The Talstar is the insecticide that will kill the fleas and leave a residual, and the NyGuard is the birth control that will halt the infestation from growing. Mix these in your sprayer together with water and spray any areas outdoors where you are having a problem with fleas or any other insect. For indoor control, you would use Ultracide which is a flea aerosol. It comes ready to use and has both the adulticide and igr (birth control) to provide you with the same type of control indoors as you have outdoors. You will need to go through and vacuum all flooring and furniture prior to using the product. Once vacuumed, use the Ultracide to spray down all carpets, hardwoods, baseboards, rugs, pet bedding and furniture to eliminate the fleas. After application you will leave the home until the product has had time to dry which normally takes about an hour or so. Once dry, all pets, children and adults can re-enter the home and resume normal activity. You will need to vacuum daily for 14 days and then do a second application of the Ultracide. You can see more tips for treating in our article How To Get Rid Of Fleas Indoors.

    Q
    We have little tiny ants all over our concrete and landscape area at our swimming pool what can we use?
    counter bait traps that does not touch or kill them. Any suggestions. Thank you,
    A
    Since you have tried baits and the ants are not taking it, we recommend to use a residual spray. We would recommend Talstar P. It works extremely well, dries clear, is non-staining and non-irritating, and you have a much wider usage area. Talstar can be sprayed around the foundation of the home, along walkways and driveways, on ornamentals/trees/lawns for insect control as well as indoors around baseboards and crevices. Please follow the product label for application.

    Q
    Hi, I live in Southern California. For the last two years, our back yard has been overrun by black widows..
    A
    Talstar P is specifically labeled (page 4 of the product label) for a number of medically significant spiders including Black Widow, Brown Recluse and Hobo Spiders. It is important to remember that Talstar P does not give an immediate knockdown. It works over a period of several hours to kill spiders that have come into contact with the product.  You should also do your part by making your property less favorable to spiders. Please take a few minutes to read our article Integrated Pest Management to learn more

    Q
    Does Talstar P come in a smaller bottle?
    Is it possible to get it in a smaller quantity? It will work perfectly for us here in Washington state (flea's and spiders) but it's a bit pricey because it's such a big bottle.
    A
    The Talstar comes in 4 sizes and you did not mention which size you are seeing on our site. You can purchase it in either a Pint, Quart, 3/4 Gallon or Gallon size container. You can see all 4 sizes and prices on the Talstar P product page. The smallest you can get this product in is the pint size. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    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.

    08/26/2013
    Q
    I didn't water before applying Talstar, what should i do?
    I failed to first irrigate BEFORE applying Talstar. Should I do it now (afterward) or should I redo the treatment (this time following the directions!). Thanks!
    A
    Depending on the insect you are treating for some you should irrigate before treatment and some you shouldnt. If it's a lawn infesting pest like mole crickets or chinch bugs, it helps get the product to the level of the insects in the lawn by irrigating first to pull them closer to the surface. Since you will have to do a retreatment in a few weeks anyways, just let the application you put down do its job and irrigate before your next treatment. Irrigating after spraying will only wash the product away. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
