    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
    I'm using Talstar P & Archer IGR on a small lawn. Do I wet lawn before or after for fleas?
    A

    You do not need to water the lawn before or after an application of Talstar P and Archer IGR for fleas according to the product label.  Just be sure you are using the correct amount of product per gallon of water/coverage area.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P as a flea and tick dip for me dogs?
    Like to bathe them in it to help with the fleas and ticks that are on them?
    A

    No, Talstar P cannot be applied on animals for flea dipping. It is only labeled for outdoor applications for flea control in the lawn. We do carry products that you can apply to your dogs safely for flea control. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Fleas for more information on flea eradication.

    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.

  • Asked by Bill from Georgia
    10/09/2012
    Q
    Can I mix this with CyperWP for outside use around the house
    Will mixing bifenthrin with the cypermethrin degrade eithers efficiency or activity?
    A
    These products should not be mixed together. There is no valid reason to mix Cyper WP and Talstar P together.  Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Cyper WP already contains a synthetic pyrethroid, so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation.

    Q
    I used Talstar P Professional Insecticide to control fleas in my yard. I put K9 Advantix on my dogs but I still have a problem. Should I use an IGR?
    A

    Yes, although Talstar P Professional Insecticide will kill fleas, you still need to incorporate an IGR like Tekko Pro to break down the reproductive cycle. You can apply both at the same time.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar on elm trees as a systemic?
    A
    Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and as such will not work as a systemic treatment. You will need to use a product such as Criterion which is a systemic insecticide to treat your elm trees.

  • Asked by Laura from Hysham

    Q
    Will Talstar P keep flies off my house?
    One side of our house becomes absolutely covered in flies every day during the summer, leaving fly specks all over the siding.
    A

    Talstar P can be used to help control cluster flies indoors and outdoors. If the cluster flies have already made their way indoors, they will be harder to control because they usually hide in a wall void or other inaccessible area and are only visible when the house warms up. If the cluster flies are in an attic or drop ceiling or other dark area, a fly light would do a great job controlling the population. Using small fly lights such as the Fly Web in the house would also help to catch the flies. Spray Talstar P directly on baseboards, window frames, door frames, and places where utilities (pipes, wires, cables) enter in to the building and any other crack, crevice or gap where insects can enter.

  • Asked by Omar from Miami, Fl

    Q
    Would mixing Talstar P with Tengard work for longer lasting residual and knockdown?
    A

    MIxing Tengard with Talstar will not make it last any longer and is not actually recommended.  Mixing 2 insecticides together can contaminate an area making it highly repellent where insects will avoid it and neither can do their job of killing the insects.  If you want a faster knockdown product, you can add something like Exciter.  If you want a longer residual you should use something like Suspend Polyzone which can last up to 90 days on outside surfaces.

  • Asked by Clarke from Barbados
    09/10/2014
    Q
    Should Talstar PL be used in an enclosed office with no windows, just air condition vents?
    A

    When applying Talstar P, as long as the area has had time to dry, there should not be any concern. Rooms should remain vacant until the product has had time to dry. Talstar P is ok to use as crack and crevice treatment along baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas.

  • Asked by Rick from Woodland Ca.
    07/10/2014
    Q
    What do most pest control companies use for general spraying?
    A
    Our most popular general use product is called Talstar. It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets. It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer. It will last for 60 to 90 days outside in between treatments. It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf eating pests. Talstar is also available in a granule formula called Talstar PL if you prefer to use granules.

  • Asked by James from Stuart, Florida
    04/15/2013
    Q
    Will Talstar P control hoosehold casebearers (Phereoeca uterella)?
    A
    When the larva or the moths make contact with areas that have been treated with Talstar P or Demand CS they will be killed by the dry residual. They must contact the treated area for any products to work. Typically a crack and crevice application of either product, lots of cleaning under furniture, appliances and under cabinets and lots of vacuuming will help eliminate these pests. Any wool items should be examined for damage and cleaned if needed.
