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.
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.
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.
Talstar P should be mixed at 1 fl oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft. We have never experienced an application taking 3 hours on a 100 X 10 or 50 X 20 area using a mist blower. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes for a successful eradication program. Please let us know if you have additional questions or concerns.
Talstar P (Talstar One) can be shipped to Detroit, Michgan. Unfortunately, we do not ship outside of the US, so we are not sure if you can enter Canada with this product.
