    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?

    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.

    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.

    Q
    How often will I need to spray Talstar P to completely eradicate camel crickets?
    I will treat the perimeter of my 1600 sq ft home inside and out using a Flo-Master 1.3 gal. Battery Powered Sprayer. Will I need to do this every year? Or after 2 or 3 treatments in March, June and November. I will not see them for 3-4 yrs, or 5 or 10 yrs?
    A
     Talstar P will kill camel crickets. Apply Talstar P as a crack and crevice or spot spray to areas where pests hide, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas. Do not use as a space spray. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices. We recommend treating the outside perimeter to help stop insect pests from coming indoors to start with. Apply Talstar P to a band of soil and vegetation 6 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to the structure. Also, treat the foundation of the structure to a height of 2 to 3 feet. Depending on the pest pressure you may have to treat monthly during the times of the season when they are most prevalent. No insecticides will last a full year but a good application could allow you to see a knock down in the population of pests for a few months without needing to reapply. You can also use products like Niban Granule Bait to help kill the camel crickets that may try to enter the home by puffing into wall voids around electrical outlets and near crevices of baseboards, as well as broadcasting it in harborage areas outdoors.

    Q
    What are the mixing instructions for mosquitoes applied with a Stihl sr 200 mister blower using Talstar P?
    It would take me 3 hours to apply 1 gallon (1 oz of Talstar p) over 1000 sq ft.! I called customer service and they were baffled by my question.
    A

    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.

    Q
    Should I mix my Talstar with the Gentrol I bought for German roach infestation
    I have treated a rental home with Talstar P twice. The second time I used cy-kick on cracks and crevices then follow up with another round of talstar. I still have a significant infestation. I used to do pest control so I know how to apply these product and how to prep. I just purchased some gentrol and max force bait. I would like to know if you recommend another product to mix with the gentrol instead of the talstar.
    A
    You could certainly mix Gentol with Talstar or Cy-Kick. You would mix 1oz Talstar with 1 oz Gentrol into one gallon water. Make sure to spray in areas you are not baiting.
