    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.

    Q
    I am looking for a better and more economical version of Ortho Home Defense, perhaps a concentrate that I mix. What do you have?
    A

    The best general pest control can depend on what region you are located in. One of the most popular general pest control products is Talstar P. Talstar has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for up to three months after you've applied it. It is also odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.

  • Asked by Sabrina from Gastonia

    Q
    Can I use Talstar P on my carpet to kill fleas?
    A

    Talstar is not labeled for application to carpet and is not recommended for indoor flea control because it is restricted to cracks and crevices only indoors. Ultracide would be a much better choice for indoor flea control. It is our recommendation and industry standard that you vacuum immediately before the application of Ultracide and every day or every other day after the application for the next two weeks. Vacuums can physically remove a decent percentage of flea eggs that are in the carpet, along with much of the organic crud that the flea larvae feed on.  The vacuum will also stimulate the flea adults still in their pupa form to quickly emerge as the adult, and at this point perhaps be sucked up in the vacuum or exposed to the Ultraicde application.  After two weeks most infestations require that you do a second application of the Ultracide and continue with the vacuuming. You should use a product that is registered to use on your pets for fleas such as Frontline or Advantage. TalstarP can be used effectively outdoors for places where your pets may frequent and also moist shady areas where fleas are likely to develop. Treating outdoors will help prevent your pets from re-infesting your home.

    Q
    Help, with outside pest control?
    I just bought 2 acres of heavily wooded property and where we live fleas, flies, ticks, snakes,mosquitoes and spiders are a problem basically everything crawly its the woods what can or should I spray outside to make sure my children don't get "eat up" by anything and everything the pest listed are some of mine main concerns
    A
    For the insect control we would recommend Talstar P. Talstar P is a Multi-Insecticide with bifenthrin is one of the most trusted and widely-used insecticides by pest control professionals today. The name Talstar P/Talstar One means one professional solution for everything: Talstar insecticide kills over 75 insect pests and can be used for indoor pest control, outdoor pest control, food handling areas, turf and ornamental treatments, in the yard as a yard spray to treat fleas or other yard pests, and even for termite control! Talstar has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it. Plus, Talstar One is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall. For snake control we recommend using Snake away which is a repellent. Make sure though that you leave one side of the treated area open so that any snakes can leave the area you are treating.
