    Talstar P is only specifically labeled for clover mites and spider mites.  It would be a good idea to get an identification of the mite species you are dealing with to be sure you choose the right product.

    Q
    Can Taurus SC and Talstar P be used in the same areas?
    I used Taurus SC for termite prevention. I trenched my home with it. But I’m planning on using Talstar P for mosquito and insect control. Can I spray my outside home with Talstar even though I trenched it using Taurus SC? Will it cause the trench to not be as effective if both are used in the same areas?
    A

    Talstar P Professional Insecticide can be used as a spray for general pests over the trench as the termites would not be affected by it since they are below the soil.  It will have no effect on the treated soil. We have a great guide for treating mosquitoes here.

  • Asked by Jason from Mass And New Hampshire

    Q
    Can you compare Talstar P to Essentria IC3? Does it kill carpenter ants and mosquitoes? Similar pricing?
    A
    Talstar P is a water based synthetic pyrethroid and Essentria IC3 is a natural product made up of botanical oils. They contain different active ingredients. They are listed for some of the same insects including ants and mosquitoes. They both have the same length of residual after applied. Essentria IC3 can be applied near water areas without harming aquatic life and Talstar P should NOT be applied to those areas. Talstar is offered in a pint, quart, 3/4 gallon and gallon concentrated bottles and diluted at an ounce per gallon of water. Essentria IC3 is available in a quart and gallon size and you will mix 1-10 oz per gallon of water depending on the insect targeted.

  • Asked by Jordan from St Michael, Mn

    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P with TZone (weed killer) to apply at the same time?
    A

    Most insecticides and herbicides are able to be tank mixed together, just make sure you follow each product label instructions for "tank mixing" instructions. 

    Talstar P is able to be tank mixed according the label but since we do not carry T-Zone Weed Killer, we cannot confirm the tank mix compatability.

    Q
    What to use to kill digger wasps that come in May and gone in June?
    They make many holes in the earth with mounds of soil around them in the lawn and garden. They do not seem to sting. They look like a small brown bee.
    A
    It sounds like they could possibly be Cicada Killers. To treat Cicada Killers, you can discourage the wasps from nesting in your yard by cutting your grass on the highest setting and by adding a thick layer of mulch to flower beds during the Cicada Killer Wasp season. These wasps do not like over saturated lawns either, so over watering during their season will help prevent them. Unfortunately, there is no fool proof way to prevent cicada killer wasps. For current infestations, you would need to use Delta dust in each individual burrow. Using a residual like Talstar P will also kill them when they come in contact with the treated areas.

    Q
    Will Talstar P Kill and get rid of Blind mosquitos?
    Live on a lake.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) will kill Blind mosquitos, but since you listed that you live on a lake, EcoVia would be best. EcoVia EC can safely be applied in and around homes, businesses, near and over water such as boat docks and pool areas without harming aquatic life, as well as numerous other areas. EcoVia EC is safe to use around children and pets.

    Q
    Is Talstar P safe to use with pet reptiles and a fish tank in the house?
    A

    Since aquatic life such as reptiles can be sensitive to insecticides, we do not recommend applying Talstar in any rooms while these animals are present, or in their habitats. It should be fine to use Talstar in other rooms where these animals are not kept.

  • Asked by Timothy from Houston, Tx

    Q
    Can you still use Talstar after six years if it has been properly stored indoors in a climate-controlled area?
    A

    The general rule of thumb for insecticide concentrates such as Talstar P is that they are good for about 3-5 years from the date of purchase as long as they have been stored at room temperature.  If your Talstar is six years old, it certainly would not hurt anything if you wanted to try to use it, but if you find that it is not working as well as it used to, it may be time for some new product.  You may also want to speak with the manufacturer directly to see what they would recommend.  You can reach FMC at 800-321-1362.

    Q
    Some thing is eating the leaves on my bouganvilla. Will Talstar-P kill it?
    A
    Although, Talstar is a fantastic product, we cannot make an accurate recommendation, until we know what pest we are dealing with. Please contact Your Cooperative Extension Office and speak with the Entemologist or Master Gardner for a positive I.D.

    Q
    How often are the soil treatments when using Talstar P (Talstar One) for termite protection?
    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 are looking for a termite treatment that lasts longer, we would recommend Termidor SC. This product lasts for 10 years in the soil. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

  • Asked by Randy from Chico, Ca

    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.
