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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
