    Q
    Should I use Talstar P or Cyper WSP?
    I purchased Cyper WSP for dealing with roaches and spiders. Of course I kept reading to find out the safety of Cyper WSP for pets and children and I found the Talstar product. Which one is better?
    A

    Either Cyper WSP or Talstar P would work for your needs.  Both are labeled for roaches and spiders, both can be used indoors and outdoors and both are safe for pets and children when used as directed.  They are both great general insecticides, just different in their formulation. If you are treating indoors, Talstar P may have a slight advantage in that it will dry clear, whereas the Cyper WSP may leave a white residue behind on some surfaces.

    Q
    Hi, I live in Southern California. For the last two years, our back yard has been overrun by black widows..
    A
    Talstar P is specifically labeled (page 4 of the product label) for a number of medically significant spiders including Black Widow, Brown Recluse and Hobo Spiders. It is important to remember that Talstar P does not give an immediate knockdown. It works over a period of several hours to kill spiders that have come into contact with the product.  You should also do your part by making your property less favorable to spiders. Please take a few minutes to read our article Integrated Pest Management to learn more

    Q
    I have a question about using two different pest control items around the same time.
    I like the treat the outside of my home every three months with Termidor for ant prevention. Recently, we have been inundated with stink bugs and I would like to treat the outside of the home with Talstar Pro (because of the good reviews it has with stinkbug control). Since it is recommended that Talstar be used monthly for stink bugs, there would be months where I am using both the Talstar and the Termidor. Is this ok---do they affect each other's ability to kill bugs?
    A

    Termidor SC is a non-repellent insecticide. This means that ants and other insects cannot tell that it is there and they will readily walk over treated areas. Termidor SC also has a delayed reaction time and a transfer effect which allows the ants time to get back to the colony and spread it around before they succumb to the effects of the product. Talstar P on the other hand is synthetic pyrethroid which many sensitive insects such as ants can detect. Ants may avoid the areas treated with Talstar and those ants that do cross over treated areas are the only ones that will be killed by the product. Talstar P does not have a transfer effect so it will not be transferred back to the colony. While the Termidor SC will not actually be deactivated by Talstar P, it will be much less effective if it is over-sprayed with Talstar P. 

    You can spray the Talstar P higher up around window frames, window sills, door frames,  any cracks and crevices around foundation or where caulking around windows and doors has opened up, around vents leading inside, and around lights (these bugs are attracted to the light from windows, doors, etc).

    Q
    Will any of your products kill stink bugs?
    We have probably a hundred around our house. They are becoming a nuisance. I need a product that sprays a wide area (i.e. back, front porches) etc.
    A

    We have put together an Overwintering kit that is just for stink bugs. This kit includes Demon WP insecticide with Cypermethrin, Eco PCO dust and a hand duster for easy application. You should treat once a month through November for best results.

    Q
    How can I control gnats in my yard?
    We sit outside and they bite all over, and I tried yard guard and it works some.
    A
    There are a few ways to keep the number of gnats down. You can invest in a misting system that periodically sprays a pyrethrin insecticide in your yard. This system is a lot like a sprinkler system. We do not carry the actual mister system but we do carry the insecticide that is used in it called Riptide. If you want to get something you can just spray you can try Talstar P. Gnats that land on the treated areas will be eliminated. Talstar P will not repel the gnats from the area nor will it kill the gnats that do not land on the treated areas.

  • Asked by Maria from Hot Springs, Ar
    09/03/2013
    Q
    Is Talstar P effective in killing roaches outdoors? If so what is the proper mixture?
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for roaches, and should do a great job helping you eliminate the infestation.  You will need about 1 fl oz of product diluted into 1 gallon of water for every 1,000 sq ft of space you need to treat.

    The Talstar is a residual which means it will not be a contact kill for the roaches. It could kill a roach within a few hours or within a day depending on how healthy the roach is, and how long it spent on a surface that was treated with Talstar. The spray will typically last indoors 90 days and outdoors 30 days.

    Q
    What can I spray or fog with that will keep the flying bugs out of my backyard?
    What can I use to spray or fog my backyard to keep flying bugs such as the flies and gnats and mosquitoes out of my backyard I’ve sprayed everything with a mix of ExciteR and Tastar P and it has done no good what is the best stuff to use Thanks
    A

    Neither ExciteR or Talstar are true repellents to keep insects away.  The area will only be slightly repellent for maybe a day after an application with these.  Talstar is designed more to provide a long residual to continue to kill those insects that contact a treated area.  Mosquito Barrier is an option that can be repellent for up to 24 hours or up to 30 days.

    Q
    Bug poison for yards.
    I am looking for a granular ant/roach/arachnid poison that is dog safe. I am probably asking for to much.
    A
    Our most popular general use product is called Talstar P, which would be a better product for trying to control spiders and the prey they feed on.  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.  Children and pets should be out of the area while you are applying the product until it dries.  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.

  • Asked by Tony from Magnolia,ark.
    05/01/2015
    Q
    What is Bifenthrin in Talstar, and do you have any products to use with a fogger for carpet beetles?
    A
    Bifenthrin is the active ingredient in Talstar P. It is mixed at 1 oz per gallon per 1,000 sq ft per month on the exterior of the structure and once every three months indoors (cracks and crevices). Using a fogger will not penetrate into cracks and crevices where carpet beetle larvae hide, and it does not leave a residual to kill insects later when they come out of hiding.  This product will only kill what is out in the open when it goes off.  We recommend reading our articles on carpet beetle control.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar or Capture safely in the soil around squash?
    Is it safe
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled for use around edible plants, so we do not recommend using it around squash or other vegetables. Since we do not sell Capture, we cannot comment on the use of that product. We do sell many other insecticides that can be used around edible plants, which you can browse on our site here.

    Q
    What is the application method and necessary precautions to apply Talstar P inside a residence and inside a school?
    A

    Talstar P is a liquid concentrate that must be diluted with water and applied using a hand or backpack pressurized sprayer. Talstar should be applied only as a spot or crack and crevice treatment indoors. Please refer to the product label for complete mixing and application instructions, as well as the required protective equipment. If you are applying inside a school, be sure to check with the governing authority on what products are allowed to be used in that environment.

  • Asked by Ernie from Olyphant
    05/02/2013
    Q
    Can you spray trees in the early spring that have caterpillars in them?
    Would you be able to make a dilution to be used in a pressure washer to reach high trees?
    A
    You can start spraying when the caterpillars are young for best results. We recommend using the 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon of water ratio for the fastest knockdown and the longest lasting residual. As for using it in the pressure washer, we really cannot give any advice on that type of application as most insecticide (if not all) are not labeled for use in pressure washer.
