    Q
    Does Talstar kill human head and chicken lice? Can it be sprayed on clothing and bedding?

    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.

    Q
    What pest control works for gnats inside and is safe for humans?
    A
    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.

    Q
    How does Talstar P effct the butterfy and bee populations? (nectar insects).
    I have an eight bed perennial garden with many flowers, roses, bushes and a rose garden. I do not want to kill off butterflies (and their larva), bees and other nectar-seeking insects, as well as the Monarch butterfly and it's larva.
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) can be toxic to beneficial insects. We advise that you make the application when the plants are not pollinating.

    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
    Can Talstar P be used to spray under homes/buildings for flea infestation?
    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.

    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.

    Q
    Should I alternate Talstar One with another pesticide to prevent resistance?
    I have used Talstar One plus Archer IGR on my yard for two summers to prevent mosquitoes and they've worked very well. I read that mosquitoes can develop resistance to bifethtin. Should I rotate with another pesticide, and if so, how often and which one do you recommend?
    A

    Yes, rotating insecticides is a good idea to prevent resistance however this normally takes years to happen. Some customer rotate every year or when they start to notice the product may not be working as well as it did in the beginning. It would not hurt to use another active ingredient for your next treatment, a great alternative to Talstar is Suspend SC. Mix 1.5oz Suspend SC with 1 gallon of water along with the Archer IGR for Mosquito control

    Q
    Can Talstar P be used on rugs both in a home and vehicle is there a strong odor?
    I live in south Florida next to a canal and we seem to have a huge no see um issue. Although, we have no standing water. We are getting bit by something we cannot see. Continuous use of repellents is not a option.
    A
    Talstar P is odorless but cannot be applied as an indoor broadcast application. It is labeled only as a crack and crevice application per the product label. We recommend that you vacuum daily, use a steamer and apply BioDefense in the home and the vehicle. BioDefense has a lemongrass scent that will eventually dissapate.

    Q
    How to eliminate mole crickets in a California lawn?
    A
    We would recommend using Talstar P.  You would us 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon of water. Use 2 gallons of solution/1000 square feet, immediate irrigation of treated area with at least 0.25 inches of water following application to ensure efficacy of sub-surface pests such as,

    but not limited to, Mole Crickets, is recommended. 

    Mole Cricket adults: Achieving acceptable control of adult mole crickets is difficult because preferred grass areas are subject to continuous invasion during the early spring by this extremely active stage. Applications should be made as late in the day as possible and should be watered in with up to 0.25 inches of water immediately after treatment. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application to bring the mole crickets closer to the soil surface where contact with the insecticide will be maximized. Grass areas that receive pressure from adult mole crickets should be treated at peak egg hatch to ensure optimum control of subsequent nymph populations (see below).


    Mole Cricket nymphs: Grass areas that received intense adult mole cricket pressure in the spring should be treated immediately prior to peak egg hatch. Optimal control is achieved at this time because young nymphs are more susceptible to insecticides and they are located near the soil surface where the insecticide is most concentrated. Control of larger, more damaging, nymphs later in the year may require both higher application rates and more frequent applications to maintain acceptable control. Applications should be made as late in the day as possible and should be watered in with up to 0.25 inches of water immediately after treatment. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application to bring the mole crickets closer to the soil surface where contact with the insecticide will be maximized

    Q
    Is Talstar an effective product for lily beetles and how long will it protect the lilies after application?

    Talstar P is labeled for beetles and is safe for use on lilies, as well as other ornamentals. The residual is 30 days outdoors. It is recommended that you spray when pollinators are not active, either in the early morning or late evening. The mixing rate is 1 fl oz per gallon of water.

    Q
    Will Talstar P work on stink bugs?
    A
    Talstar P will kill stinkbugs. You should dilute one ounce of Talstar P per gallon of water. You will use a hand pump sprayer to apply the solution on all door frames, window frames, areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into the structure, a band of soil 6 to 10 feet adjacent to the structure, also to a height of 2 to 3 feet on the foundation where pests may be active or may find entrance. As the stink bugs crawl over the treated area, they will receive a lethal does of the insecticide and usually die within a few hours. You should treat every month starting in August and ending in November for best results.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P as an indoor broadcast spray for fleas?
    I didn't read into it very carefully and broadcast sprayed my entire house for fleas..oops. now what do I do? Although everything from fleas to flies are dead.
    A

    You should not repeat the treatment you have already made indoors using Talstar P. You can use Talstar P for flea control outdoors at a rate of 1 oz per 1000 sq ft around turf and ornamentals. Indoors, you can use a steamer or carpet cleaner to break down some of the residual application. At least 14 days after that application, we recommend retreating with a product for indoor flea treatment such as PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol. Be sure to vacuum well before spraying and then every day or every other day after. Please refer to our online Flea Treatment Guide for more tips on eradicating this pest.

    Q
    What is the best all around pesticide for home barrier treatment?
    I have general little black ants, spiders, wasps, and many other insects. No major infestations that I know of, but now that spring is here we are seeing a lot more insects. What is the best wide range and long lasting insecticide? I read Talstar, Termidor, Temprid, Bifen, etc. and it is confusing as to which is the best product for general pest control. Also, is there one better for inside and one better for outside? Thanks
    A

    We typically recommend Talstar P for general home pest control.  It is labeled for over 75 different pests, so it will work for all of the ones you mentioned as well as many others.  It can be used indoor and outdoors, and it is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.  You will want to treat every 90 days indoors, and every 30 days outdoors.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.
