    Q
    Can I apply Talstar P with a tank sprayer and water it in with irrigation?
    I have a 1-acre yard to treat. Reading the label for high volume application, can I apply the concentrated amount of Talstar P with my tank sprayer and then water it in with irrigation to achieve the high volume application results? Thank you.
    A
    Talstar can only be applied to your yard mixed with water first. Using it the manor you described is against label usage, and you risk not only damaging your lawn by applying it directly to the yard, but also watering it in aftewards would be the equivalent of having a rain storm and it would wash the product away. You need to mix it at the proper dilution ratios for the tank size you have and spray it across the property when you know no rain is expected for at least 6-8 hours after the product has dried. If you have any other questions feel free to contact us or the manufacturer FMC at 800-321-1362.

  • Asked by Luis from El Paso
    06/08/2016
    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P with another insecticide like Suspend SC in one tank?
    A

    There is no valid reason to mix Suspend SC and Talstar P together.  Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Suspend SC 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
    Which spray product should I use? I want to replace my pest control service.
    I don't have a insect problem. It's more of a preventative service every 6 months.

  • Asked by Chris from Summerland Key, Florida

    Q
    Mosquito yard treatment
    I am looking for a mosquito yard treatment for a gravel based yard about 800sqft in Summerland Key Florida. We get alot of rain and the humidity is high, so standing water is abundant as well as lots of tropical plant life.
    A
    We would recommend the Mosquito control kit. Talstar will hold up in rain after it has dried. Please be sure like any other insecticide to make your application when it is not raining. Talstar is safe to apply to non-edible plant life. Please be aware that this product is harmful to aquatic life and watch for run-off areas. The Bti Dunks will work great in large bodies of standing water, as it is a larvacide.

    Q
    What is the best and longest lasting mosquito product?
    I live in Southwest Louisiana and we have had a lot of rain lately thus a bad outbreak of the little bloodsuckers. I need a product that is not going to disappear after the first rainfall?
    A

    Talstar is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using any hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer.  The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio you are trying to provide relief at.  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.  It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.  Best of all it will not harm any birds in the area.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P (Talstar One) on my lemon tree?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) should NOT be applied to lemon trees or other edible vegetation. If the edibles were treated, you should not consume the fruit. Please provide the targeted pest for an alternate product recommendation for treatment.

  • Asked by Thom
    05/22/2018
    Q
    What product is best for killing ticks outside?
    A

    Talstar P mixed with an Insect Growth regulator such as Nyguard IGR would be a good choice for tick control. Talstar P would work to kill ticks that come into contact with treated surfaces while the Nyguard would work to help stop juvenile ticks from reaching sexual maturity. We recommend using  the highest usage rate of 1 oz Talstar  and 1 oz of Nyguard IGR per gallon of water.

    Q
    What time of day is most effective to spray Talstar P outside to kill mosquitos?
    I'm using a Stihl AR200 back
    A

    We recommend applying Talstar anytime of the day EXCEPT during the middle of the day.  The key with mosquitoes is to apply to the underside of the leaves as that is where the adults lay during the day.

    Q
    Talstar P (Talstar One)safe for pets after it has dried. What about after it rains, the grass is wet again
    Do I have to keep the dog off the grass after a rain?
    A
    Yes. Talstar P can be safely used around pets as long as you follow the label instructions; all pets need to be out of the area while application is being made and they can return as soon as the application is dry. As long as the area has had time to dry before a rain it will not "reactivate".

    Q
    Does Talstar P work on bed bugs? And if so, how often should one apply your product?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for bed bugs, but the Talstar label itself says it should not be used as the only product to get rid of a bed bug problem.  Typically, one product will not do the job.  That's why we offer our Bed Bug Kits, which have multiple products that are used in different areas in the bedroom and that do different things.  The kit is exactly the products that a professional company would use and charge you hundreds of dollars to apply.  All of our kits come with full instructions on where to apply each product.  We make it easy as possible for you to treat your own bed bug problem, and our kits have a very high success rate when used correctly.

    Q
    Is Talstar as safe as the pyrethrum products claim to be?
    Would like to use safer products now that we have kiddos.
    A
    Talstar P can be safely used around pets and children as long as you follow the label instructions; all pets and children need to be out of the area while application is being made and they can return as soon as the application is dry. Talstar is none irratating if it touches the skin, but is not recommended to be around until it has dried. Talstar will not harm babies if the product label is followed. Unless other wise noted, the pesticides on our website are safe to use in a home with children. As with any product, it is important to follow the label instructions and precautions to ensure safety. Talstar P is non-irritating, non-staining and contains no odorous or plant-damaging solvents. It's even labeled for food-handling area.

    I've been using Talstar-P for outdoor perimeter and a bit of indoor pest control and would like to use something stronger and longer acting as we're about to enter rainy and buggy season in Florida. Thanks!
    A
    Sure we would recommend to switch it up to Suspend Polyzone.  Suspend Polyzone features a proprietary polymer layer that protects the active ingredient from weather, irrigation and mechanical abrasion. This controlled release formulation, which resists erosion, ensures your treatment will continue to control targeted pests for up to 90 days outdoors

  • Asked by David from Americus, Ga
    10/15/2017
    Q
    What is the best method to kill fire ant mounds using Talstar P?
    A

    Yes, Talstar P can be used for fire ant control in the type of sprayer you described, but you will also need to do mound drenching. According to the Talstar P product label, "Fire Ant Mound control is optimized by combining broadcast applications that will control foraging workers and newly mated fly-in queens with mound drenches that will control existing colonies. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application or use a high volume application. Apply broadcast treatments at 0.5 to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Use enough finished volume to penetrate thatch or sod. Treat mounds by applying 1 oz of Talstar P per mound in 1 to 2 gallons water by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat 3 feet out around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12”. Treat mounds with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 - 80F) or in early morning or late evening hours."

    Q
    Will Talstar P eradicate springtails?
    A
    Talstar P and Talstar PL Granules in the yard work very well springtails and they can be used in the same areas. Springtails can be tough to control. You must find the moisture source and correct it to get rid of springtails completely.
