    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
    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.

    Q
    Can you tell me if Talstar will kill mange mites in the ground?
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled for general mites, though mange mites typically are on livestock or pets.  For mange mites, we recommend Tengard SFR which could be used to treat the ground outside, as well as inside the home over a certain area.  Tengard SFR can also be used on a dogs and other livestock (do not use on felines) to kill mites without harming the animal.

    Q
    Is there a Talstar available to licensed applicator?
    I am a new licensed applicator and best i can tell the general public can buy the same product, where is my advantage here? Do you have a rup they CAN NOT buy without a license! Please answer privately Thank you
    A

    There are various products that are not available to the general public depending on where they live. We are unsure of exactly what you are asking. These products can be purchased by homeowners, however, the advantage that you have over a homeowner is that they can spray only their home. You can legally spray for profit.

    Q
    We have large, black ants devouring our pear trees from within. What product should I use?
    We have used over the counter ant killers and nothing is working. Ants have eaten a HUGE CAVITY from the base of our pear tree up thru the center of the trunk. Now, they are starting on the next pear tree. We were told to get Talstar P, but have no idea which one of your many products we need to order.
    A
    You should not spray any edible vegetation such as pear trees with Talstar P. You should contact your local cooperative extension office for recommendations, as we are not sure what type of ant you are dealing with. The folks at the extension office are usually very well versed with local insects and what works best for them.
