    Q
    I purchased Talstar P liquid, will this be effective for a tick infestation?
    Not sure if ticks, but think it is - at first thought bird mites.
    A

    Talstar P is one of our most popular selling products for ticks and is what we usually recommend.  It would not be recommended for bird mites, as as it is pretty specific to the types of mites it controls. We recommend that you add Archer IGR ( insect growth regulator) to the Talstar P.

    Q
    FMC the manufacturer of Talstar does not recommend applying with a hose end sprayer. Is that because it's less effective?
    A

    Talstar P (Talstar One) is not labeled to be applied with hose end sprayer, because it is a professional grade product. You can apply with a hose end sprayer. The same application rates apply. Keep in mind using a hose end sprayer can be a little more difficult to calibrate than simply mixing 1oz per gallon water in a pump sprayer, but we have many customers that use the hose end sprayer application.

    Q
    What can I use in a sprayer for cockroaches, ants, and other insects?
    A

    One of our most popular general use products 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 including roaches and ants. This product can be used inside and outside of the home, it is odorless, dries clear 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. The mix rate is 1 oz per gallon of water. It will last for 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors.

    Q
    I sprayed Talstar P for mosquitos, but will it also kill other bugs? Does the method of application affect what it kills?
    Orkin sprayed our yard for mosquitos with a backpack sprayer. I asked the technician what it kills and he said fleas, ticks and mosquitos. But the info I've found online says it kills so much more. He sprayed all over the grass and bushes.
    A

    Talstar P is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with (including fleas, ticks and mosquitos) and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets. A hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer would be the preferred, but the method of application will not determine the results of the product.

    Q
    When can I apply Talstar P for mosquitoes?
    I sprayed CY Kick CS & Nyguard yesterday for ants, ticks, fleas, and spiders. Can I apply Talstar P for mosquitoes? Is there one product that would address all of these effectively?
    A
    Both Cykick and Talstar will kill most common pest including Mosquitoes. The biggest difference is that Cykick is Microencapsulated and may take longer to kill the pest, Talstar will kill more quickly.

    Q
    When should Talstar P be used to control grubs in the lawn?
    A

    Talstar P is not labeled to treat for grubs. Dylox 6.2 would be an excellent alternative when treating for grubs that are actively feeding. Merit Granules or Dominion 2L also work well for grubs. We do have several products that are specifically labeled for grub worms on our website: Grub Worm Control. We also recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and inquire about the best time to start treatments for grubs in your region.

    Q
    Best method to kill and prevent Mosquitos in residential wooded yard?
    I live in MN and I'm planning to purchase a Solo 451 for applying the chemical. My concern is which product will be more effective. The 2 that I'm considering from your website is Talstar P or permethrin (pyrana). Will one perform better than the other? What are the pros and cons of one over the other? Thank you for your help!
    A
    Talstar P (Talstar One) is highly recommended for Mosquito control. To further control and break down the reproductive cycle you can mix in Nyguard. Nyguard will cause the flying insects to become sterile after contacting it.

    Is Talstar P the best product for killing termites in and around a tree before cutting it down?
    I don't want termites heading for my house to find a new source of food when I cut down my tree.

    First be sure to protect your biggest investment, your home. Put up a barrier using  Termidor SC. Please see our article on Barrier Treatments. For the tree, you can inject Dominion 2L

    Q
    What mix do you recommend for mosquitoes?
    I am currently using Talstar/Nyguard but not as effective as it was
    A

    The mixing ratio for mosquitoes is 1 fl oz per gallon of water.The key is to apply the Talstar P it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or where you are trying to provide relief.  It should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well which is where the mosquitoes hang out during the heat of the day. Talstar P should be applied every 30 days for optimum control. Please see our Mosquito Treatment Guide for more tips.

  • Asked by Matt from Naches,wa.

    Q
    Do you have products for Pine beetles that are not liquids?
    A
    Since pine borers are a type of bark beetle you must apply a product directly to the bark to control the beetles and these products are only available in liquid form. Unfortunately there is no easy solution when it comes to pine beetles. Infected trees should be cut down (before the newly hatched beetles fly out of the trees in the spring/summer) and the wood burned or chipped, while other still healthy trees should be sprayed annually to protect them. Because of the natural boring behavior of the beetle they are protected from topically applied insecticides and systemic insecticides (those injected into the tree or applied as a root drench) have proven ineffective for pine beetle infestations. Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a synthetic pyrethroid like Talstar. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations. You should contact your local cooperative extension office to find out the best time to start spraying in your region.

  • Asked by Daniel from Norco
    05/24/2015
    Q
    Does Talstar kill spider mites and can it be sprayed after oil or sulfur has been sprayed?
    Is Talstar ok to use plants have been sprayed with horticultural oil or sulfur?
    A
    We would recommend doing the application of Talstar P before doing an application of horticultural oil or sulfur. This will provide the residual for the pests, and the other products will help with killing them as well. Spraying Talstar P over either one of these will likely decrease the effectiveness of the oil and/or sulfur.

    Q
    What is the best product to prevent indoor insects?
    A

    As a general prevention for indoor and outdoor control Talstar P is one of the most trusted and widely-used insecticides by pest control professionals today. Talstar P has a long residual control. so it keeps on killings pest sfor over three moneths after you have sprayed it. We recommend to use 0.33 to1 fluid ounce per gallon of water to be applied either as a crack and crevice, pinstream, spot, coarse, low pressure spray of with a paint brush. You will want to limit repeat applications to no more than once per seven days.

  • Asked by Harry from Deland, Fl
    03/13/2017
    Q
    How can I get rid of fungus gnats in my yard?
    A

    Fungus gnats are usually found breeding in landscaped areas/lawns that are over-watered. You should be careful to let area dry out completely, which will kill any larvae in the soil.  You could also treat the area with something like Talstar P, which has great residual protection and also can be used for a wide variety of crawling pests and lawn and ornamental pests outside.  Gnats that land on the treated areas will be eliminated. Talstar P will not repel the gnats from the area nor will it kill the gnats that do not land on the treated areas.  It is best to resolve the issues that are causing water to build in areas and provide a breeding site for them.
