    Q
    Is there a way to deter horse flies? We get alot of them by our pool.
    A
    Horseflies and many other species of biting flies tend to develop on the edge of bodies of water and since they are strong fliers these breeding areas can be near or far which makes finding the source next to impossible. You can apply a product such as Talstar P around the pool area and flies that land on the treated areas will be eliminated. Using Talstar will give some relief but since these flies can fly over treated areas it can be tough to get complete control. Relief should be on the way soon however as horsefly season is usually on 3-6 weeks long

  • Asked by Danette from Ms
    03/18/2013
    Q
    What is the most effective, Talstar PL granules or Talstar P liquid, for ant control for a 3acre area?
    I've used the Talstar PL granules twice/yr with success for a 3 plus years. However, if the liquid is just as effective, spaying it with a 30gallon sprayer would be more convenient.
    A
    Both formulations will provide the same level of control for most insects though the granules are a bit more "time released" and will last a little bit longer than the topical spray.

  • Asked by Robert from Jacksonville, Fl.
    10/15/2011
    Q
    I'm using Talstar to treat my home for bed bugs. Is it safe to spray on furniture like the couch and mattress?
    A

    Absolutely not.  Talstar is not labeled to apply to any furniture, mattresses, or other areas that you may come into contact with.  Talstar is restricted to cracks and crevices and other areas that you would not come into contact with.  The instructions for applying Talstar for Bed Bugs are below, and you should know that even in the instructions it states that Talstar should not be used as your only protection against bed bugs.  Our most popular product for bed bugs is our bed bug kits.  

    Bedbugs: Thorough application should be made to crack and crevices
    where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, box
    springs, inside empty dressers and clothes closets and carpet edges,
    high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use this product
    on bed linens, pillows, mattresses or clothes. Remove all clothes
    and other articles from dressers or clothes closets before application.
    Allow all treated areas to thoroughly dry before use. Not recommended
    for use as sole protection against bedbugs. If evidence of bedbugs is
    found in/on mattresses, use products approved for this use.

    Q
    Will Talstar P (Talstar One) kill gnats & roaches?
    I started getting an infestation of gnats this spring. I have tried everything from foggers to home remedies. The gnats are in my basement/garage. There is a lot of dirt areas around the perimeter inside the garage area. It cannot be removed. (Old house, 1920). Anyway, please help me!
    A

    Yes, Talstar P (Talstar One) is labeled for gnats and roaches. You will use 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. This can be sprayed around the perimeter of your home, on trees, bushes, broadcast across your lawn, etc. It cannot be sprayed on any type of edibles or area where animals would graze.

    We would also recommend mixing the Talstar P (Talstar One) with Gentrol IGR. This will stop the roaches from reproducing for up to four months.

  • Asked by Andrew
    10/02/2010
    Q
    Can I use Talstar P to get rid of cluster flies?
    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.

    Q
    Can Talstar P be used around citrus trees?
    A
    Talstar P is not labeld for use on or around any edible vegetation including vegetable gardens and fruit and nut trees. You would need to stay at least 10 feet away from the drip line and roots of the tree or use a different product. If you let us know what insect you are looking to treat for, we can make a better recommendation specific to your needs.

  • Asked by Jason from Okc, Ok
    05/05/2014
    Q
    I want to spray my own house for bugs. I live in Oklahoma City, and I used to pay a service to do it.
    They went out of business and I was forced to use Terminix. Well they suck. I just want to keep insects out of my house, but I don't know what to buy or how to apply. I have a small ant problem in one of the bedrooms as well. Any tips? Oh, I would also like to keep the flies down in the summer. Any suggestions for that? thanks,
    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. 
    Talstar P is labeled to help control many types of flies and can be applied to your lawn as well for them.
    You may be seeing ants in the bathrooms, because they are looking for water. Since ants can be quite fickle with the foods they are eating, we recommend the Complete Ant Kit. This kit combines both a sweet and protein based bait. Please also see Ant control article.
