    Q
    Will Talstar P (Talstar One) kill orb spiders?
    We've just recently had orb spiders...like bee spiders and a necoranae(fuzzy brown spider) on windows and by our ac unit. I want to kill these suckers and anything they will eat. I'm hoping this product will do it.

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is labeled for spiders but not orb spiders in particular. The product should be sprayed in areas where the spiders will come in contact with it. The mixing rate is 1 fl oz per gallon of water.

    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.

    Talstar P residual may dry on glass surfaces if you spray them, but if diluted correctly, then it should dry clear. If you have any milky residue, then you can wipe it off with a damp paper towel or cloth.

    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.

    Q
    We're just starting this process. Is there a generic product for inside use?
    We have silver fish and a few small ants towards the end of the previous treatment cycle and want to also control for termites.
    A
    Our most popular general use product is called Talstar.  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.  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.

    Q
    Talstar mixed with Trimec, Tenacity, Drive, fertilizer, etc
    I would like to tank mix the following in a 35 gallon sprayer in the appropriate amounts for my 1 acre yard, Talstar, fertilizer, tenacity, DyneAmic, & blue marker in the early spring. And then Talstar, fertilizer, trimec, drive, DyneAmic. and blue marker in the summer and fall. I *think* from reading labels and Q&A here, that these mixes are acceptable and 35 gallons of water is enough to not have anything be too hot. This mix in this tank towed behind my tractor should (I think) cover my entire yard, which is about 38,000 SqFt. There seems to be a few Q&As that say never to mix insecticides with other treatments. But then there are lots that say it's fine.
    A

    There are typically no issues mixing different kinds of sprays together, such as an insecticide and fertilizer or fertilizer with herbicide. We always recommend doing a small jar test for compatability when mixing any products together for the first time, unless the product labels expressly address the tank mix you are using.

    There are two things I would caution you against with these mixtures. One is if you are using herbicides for your turfgrass and wanting to use an insecticide for mosquito control at the same time. For mosquito control, you want to use a product like Talstar P on ornamental shrubs, tree branches, etc.; however, you should not spray post-emergent herbicides like Drive, Tenacity, or Trimec on these areas since those herbicides would damage your ornamental plants.

    We would also be careful about mixing more than 2 herbicides at one time since this could cause extra stress on your turfgrass.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    What do you recommend for Springtails?
    They walk right over the barrier of products and keep coming back.
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is a great product that can be used indoors and outdoors to control springtails. You want to mix at a ratio of 1 fl oz per gallon of water. You want to spray the outside perimeter 2-3 feet up and 2-3 feet out, also focus on cracks and crevices and entry points inside. Springtails indicate that there is a moisture issue because they breed in walls or under slabs where a moisture issue may exist. You must locate and correct the moisture problem to get rid of the spring tails because typically insecticides alone will not do the job. You should also take a look at our "How To Get Rid of Springtails" article for further information.

    Q
    Do I open both caps and seals? Do I squeeze the container to get the solution to the measuring chamber?
    A
    Yes, to utilize the Talstar P bottle, you will need to remove both caps and both seals below the caps if there are some there. (some products come with them, some don't) Once that process is finished, replace the cap over the larger portion of the bottle and then squeeze the bottle itself. This will cause the solution to run up the straw like tube on the side of the bottle and into the measuring reservoir for you to know exactly how much you need per gallon of water.
