    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.

    Q
    Upon spraying the soffit its possible that some dripped into my container plants.
    I use containers on the porch to grow annuals and vegetables (tomatoes/cukes etc). Do I now have to dispose of the soil or can I wait a year (toxicity ends after time?) and just plant ornamentals this year. I dig in that dirt is it harmful to me?

    Q
    Springtails
    We sprayed Talstar P on our Slider twice, we are still seeing a few milling around. How long does the product work to kill the existing Springtails, or should we spray again, b/c we are seeing nits, (babies).
    A
    Talstar has a residual of at least 30 days outdoors and 90 days indoors. Depending on how healthy the springtail is and how long it spends on a surface treated by the Talstar, will depend on how long it actually takes for each individual one to die. Could be hours or even a day. Also if you are not treating the main nest, and only the satellite colony you are only temporarily fixing your problem. More will appear as they continue to migrate and you will need to fix the moisture issue in your home that is attracting the springtails as well. Until the moisture is gone or the main nest is found and eliminated, you will have an ongoing battle with the pest.

    To treat gnats indoors we recommend using the Flyweb Fly light and a crack and crevice spray like Talstar. The Flyweb will attract flying insects and then catch them with the attached glueboard. Talstar is to be applied to cracks, crevice, baseboards, entry points. Talstar is safe for people and pets to be around after the treated area has dried.

    06/11/2014
    Q
    Can I use Talstar P on the inside and outside of the home with an IGR for flea control?
    1 acre and 1/2 of land with also treating the inside of the house. I was looking at Talstar P and was going to add an IGR. Any recommendations?
    A
    Talstar P can be applied with an IGR such as Pivot 10 for outdoor flea control. For indoor flea we recommend applying a product such as Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR because it can be broadcast inside the home and applied to furniture. It is recommended to make at least two applications indoors and outdoors two weeks apart. Each day during the course of the treatment, you will need to vacuum (even the hard surfaces) for the fastest elimination. Please let us know if you have any questions/concerns.

    Q

    I have a flea infestation in my yard and under my home. The fleas are now coming into my home. Should I spray in the afternoon or early in the morning when the dew is still fresh?
    A
    Yes, you can use Talstar p, but we also recommend using an IGR like Nyguard IGR that will help to break down the reproductive process. You want to make your application when the grass is wet. Please review our Flea Control page as well.

  • Asked by Abigail from Arizona
    01/10/2017
    Q
    Is Talstar P the best spray to use along with a gel bait for roaches?
    A

    While Talstar P is labeled for roaches, it is not generally recommended as there can be resistancy issues within a roach population with a product like this. We would recommend using a product like Temprid SC instead. Temprid SC has two active ingredients in it to combat a roach infestations, and doesn't have the resistancy issues that a product with only one active ingredient might have.  You may want to look over our Roach Control Guide for more information on treating and preventing roaches.

  • Asked by Cindy from California

    Q
    What is the best product for fleas infestation on dry lawn, dirt perimeter of house?
    What is the best flea fighter for outdoor use on dry lawn, dirt surrounding the house? Also, please advise a product for indoor use on carpet and bare floor.
    A
    The best products for flea control outdoors would be Talstar P mixed with NyGuard IGR. The Talstar is the insecticide that will kill the fleas and leave a residual, and the NyGuard is the birth control that will halt the infestation from growing. Mix these in your sprayer together with water and spray any areas outdoors where you are having a problem with fleas or any other insect. For indoor control, you would use Ultracide which is a flea aerosol. It comes ready to use and has both the adulticide and igr (birth control) to provide you with the same type of control indoors as you have outdoors. You will need to go through and vacuum all flooring and furniture prior to using the product. Once vacuumed, use the Ultracide to spray down all carpets, hardwoods, baseboards, rugs, pet bedding and furniture to eliminate the fleas. After application you will leave the home until the product has had time to dry which normally takes about an hour or so. Once dry, all pets, children and adults can re-enter the home and resume normal activity. You will need to vacuum daily for 14 days and then do a second application of the Ultracide. You can see more tips for treating in our article How To Get Rid Of Fleas Indoors.
