    Q
    Best treatment for small Black ants and centipedes?
    I have children and a dog, what would you recommend for small black ants and centipedes? Thank you!
    A
    We would recommend our most popular insecticide, Talstar.  It is a very safe product to use around children and pets and is widely used by professional companies every day in thousands of homes across the country.  It is odorless, can be used indoors and outdoors and it is labeled for over 80 different insects.  You would apply it using a one gallon hand pump sprayer

    Q
    Is there a Talstar granule product that can be used for termite treatments?
    I like using granular applications. Is Talstar P the only one for termites?
    A
    Talstar Granules are not labeled for termites and would most likely not penetrate deeply enough in the soil to treat for termites. The only other granule product that can be used for termites is the Premise Granule but these granules are only for spot treating an active infestation and they do not offer any long lasting residual control. Currently non-repellent insecticides such as Termidor SC and Dominion 2L are the preferred products for termite treatments. Non-repellent insecticides cannot be avoided by termites because they cannot tell that it is there. The exposed termites then remain unaffected for a few days, before sudden death occurs. In the meantime, the exposed termites are able to spread the non-repellent chemical to unexposed termites by physical contact when they feed or groom the other termites, resulting in a domino death effect which wipes out more of the colony.

    Q
    Can I spray Talstar directly onto the foliage of flowering plants for Japanese beetles?
    A

    Yes, Talstar P Professional Insecticide can be applied to any bushes, shrubs, trees, landscaped areas as well as flowering plants. However, you should minimize the spray on the actual flowering plants as you do not want it to expose the product to any bees that help with pollination. It is recommended that you spray when pollinators are not active, either in the early morning or late evening.

    Q
    How do I get rid of what looks to be springtails in my tub and back door?
    A
    Please check out our article "How to get Rid of Springtails" for a play by play for treating springtails. You REALLY want to make sure you are using a residual insecticide like Talstar P along the cracks and crevices, paying close attention to areas that may contain moisture. You also want to use a dust like Delta dust in wall voids.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P in a misting system?
    I would like to use Talstar P in a misting system that sprays once a day. Is this possible? What would the recommended dosage be?
    A

    Talstar P cannot be applied in a misting system.  It can only be applied using a hand held pump sprayer, backpack sprayer, hose end sprayer, or a mist blower.  We do carry misting system concentrates that you can use instead.

    Q
    Can I use sticky boards outside for a million different insects
    A

    Glueboards would not be used outside as they are made with cardboard and glue that would not hold up to the eliminates.  Instead they would be used inside for monitoring and trapping and you can use a residual product such as Talstar P around the perimeter of the home for general pest control.

    Q

    I don't want to have run off harm my bass and bream.
    A

    No, Talstar is not labeled to be used around ponds, lakes or other water sources. We recommend using EcoVia EC that is labeled for use and kills of a wide range of flying and crawling insects.

    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. Please follow label instructions for your target pest and application.

    Q
    Is Talstar P safe for use around honey bees? If not,any suggestion? Thanx.
    A
    Talstar P should NOT be applied to honey bees. Please provide more information on the treatment that you are planning and the type of insect you will be interested in eradicating so that we can offer additional assistance and a product recommendation. Mavrik Perimeter can be applied and once dry is safe for honey bees. Please refer to the product label for usage instructions.

    Q
    What metering rate should I set my blower at for Talstar P?
    I have a Stihl SR450 blower and can change the metering rate. I have read the directions and i can't find any information.
    A
    As long as you are using the Talstar at the proper dilution rate in the tank the metering rate should just be dependent on how quick you are walking during the application. We do not carry Stihl blowers to give you an exact answer, however on our Solo 451 Blower we suggest out of a metering rate of 1-4 to normally put it on 2 for a normal pace during application.

    Q
    Will Talstar P control white flies in my bermudagrass?
    I use talstar in the mixture of 1 ounce per gallon, however this does not control the white flies living in my bermuda grass. I spray no more than once every 4 weeks depending on rainfall.
    A

    According to the Talstar P label to treat Whiteflies you may apply 1oz / gallon of water and repeat as necessary to maintain control. In addition to a foliar spray (Talstar P), using a systemic such as Adonis 2F to control whiteflies prooves to be effective.

  • Asked by Wayne from Rock Hill
    06/30/2019
    Q
    Will Talstar P kill my bees and other pollinators?
    A

    Since Talstar P is a non-selective herbicide, it could potentially kill bees. It is recommended that you spray when pollinators are not active, either in the early morning or late evening, and that you avoid spraying flowering plants to reduce risk to pollinators.

    Q
    Can I mix Talstar P with dawn soap for boxelder bugs?
    The dawn soap will breakdown the hard shell of the bugs body and then the Talstar P will kill them
    A

    Talstar P will do a great job for boxelder bugs! We do not recommend that you use soap with the Talstar P or any other insecticides. The Talstar P may be used to spray directly on the plant foliage and it can be used inside and outside of the home. Please take a moment to look at our "How to Get Rid of Boxelder Bugs" article for more detailed information about this type of pest.

  • Asked by Lisa from Great Falls, Va
    07/25/2018
    Q
    Why is Talstar P (Talstar One) killing everything but gnats?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is labeled for gnat control. Be sure you are mixing at 1oz per gallon water. Are you seeing them indoors? If so, be sure to take any indoor plants out and let them dry. If having an issue outdoors, be sure you are focusing on areas that contain moisture and/or shade. Also, undersides of leaves on non-edible trees and shrubs. Keep in mind that part of the difficulty in handling flying insects is that you are relying on them to land on areas treated with the insecticide.

    Q
    What do you do to get rid of Asian beetles in your garden?
    My girlfriends garden in Minnesota was over run with them this summer. Any preventative measure to use this fall? If not, what can I use next spring.
    A
    Asian beetles are generally seen as beneficial in gardens as they eat other bugs that are known to cause damage to plants. If this is not a vegetable garden and you need to get rid the Asian beetles, you can use Talstar P at a rate of 1 ounce per gallon of water. If you need to spray a vegetable or herb garden, you should contact your local cooperative extension office and seek further advice based on the type of plant that needs to be treated.
