    Q
    Can I reuse a container used for weed killer (not grass) with Talstar?
    I have a have empty bottle of weed eater from home depot, but I like it because it sprays with electronic trigger. With a good rinse, could I use 1oz talstar/gallon water mix for indoor outdoor and lawn?...if I did already what should be my next plan of action?
    A
    You can use the jug but you must rinse it several times and spray water through the hose and nozzle several times to make sure all of the residuals are gone. For most Talstar P general pest control applications you will use 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon water. Please refer to the Talstar P product label for complete usage instructions.

    Q
    How often to use Bifenthrin for ant control around my home?
    I'd like to do my own pest control, I have been paying a pest control company and would like to save money. I understand Bifenthrin is good for ant control. How often would I need to spray the perimeter of my house to establish good control over the ants getting into my house? Is there any reason I cannot do this myself?
    A

    Q
    Talstar P Pet safe when dry? Morning dews?
    In my region we frequently have heavy dews each morning. I have 2 dogs that go out early morning when the dew is still on the lawn to do their jobs. What about then? Is it harmful after application when it becomes wet over and over again? My Boxer tends to clean herself by licking her legs every day.
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) is completely safe after it has dried. Your pets are safe to enter the area even if there is a dew. It will not cause the active ingredient to "reactivate" to a state that could be harmful. Also, after dilution there is only a large enough amount of active ingredient to kill small insects.

    Q
    I have a problem with roaches, ants coming in from the outside. I live in Texas. What should I use?
    They are big roaches. the ants are 2 kinds, fire ants and big black ones. Also have these 1 -2 inch long hard shelled multi legeed things with stingers on thier tails are they dangerous?
    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.

    Based on the fact that you are in Texas and the description you gave, the multi-legged critter with the stingers on the back end sounds like it could be the Texas Red Headed Centipede (they are venomous) but we can't say for sure without seeing a picture of the insect. You can Google Texas red Headed Centipede to do a comparison if you like.

    Q
    Will Talstar P hurt aquatic animals?
    A

    Yes. Fish and aquatic invertebrates share many of the same biological characteristics as insects making them susceptible to insecticides. Talstar P's product label has these precautions:

    "This pesticide is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Drift and run-off from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwaters. Care should be used when spraying to avoid fish and reptile pets in/around ornamental ponds"

    Q
    Best product for spiders?
    I live in Arkansas and in my apartment I constantly get all kinds of spiders on a daily (mostly at night). As an example, tonight in the past hour I have killed 4 spiders and the night isn't over... and this happens every single night now for over a year. Is there anything aside from direct spray on type insecticides that will kill quickly and something that also might be like a barrier that they will avoid to try and limit the amount coming in? I ordered roach killer from you guys made by DuPont and wow.. one application and I havent seen a single one in MONTHS! So hope you can help with this spider issue.
    A
    That is awesome news that you were able to control the roaches! For treatment of spiders, you can definitely use Talstar P. Talstar is odorless, dries clear and will treat spiders, including brown recluse. Talstar acts as a residual and will make a barrier. Please let us know id you have any other questions.

    Q
    I have larder beetles. I need to know what I can use to get rid of them but will not harm my Macaws?
    I am in an apartment, and I know they are using the radiators. The eggs have hatched and now these beetles are already shedding by the time they get to the other register. My cat is excellent at finding these things. Anyway, I have asked my manager to have his bug guy come, but I get nowhere. I also have two Macaws that are VERY sensitive. I cannot even cook on Teflon, the fumes will kill them. Someone told me to use Bifenthrin, but is this safe? What are my alternatives?
    A
    Bifenthrin is an active ingredient found in several products, Talstar P being the most popular and widely used bifenthrin product. Talstar P is a very safe product and is even labeled to be used in poultry houses and animal confinement areas. Having said that, we do not feel comfortable making a product recommendation for you because your birds are so sensitive. We recommend you speak to your veterinarian for recommendations or remove the birds completely during the entire treatment process.
