Diazinon was outlawed over 10 years ago, and it is too bad because it was a great product. Unfortunately, the over the counter products do not even come close to the effectiveness of Diazinon. However, our professional products do! We sell the same professional products used by professional companies that cannot be sold over the counter. Our most popular product is Talstar P. It is a general use insecticide which can be applied inside and outside, is odorless, is labeled for over 80 different insects, and can last up to 90 days in between treatments. Please take a moment and read some of our over 50 customer reviews about how well Talstar worked for them.
The application rate of 1 ounce of Talstar One per gallon of water is correct, as is treating in the evening when the insects have come out of hiding and are exposed. You can retreat after 2 weeks in most cases. You should notice a reduction in the number of army worms within the first few days but because the moths can migrate from just about anywhere, you may continue to see them (the moths do not cause damage).
Unfortunately, there is not another product that is comparable to Talstar P for Japanese Beetles that can be shipped to New York. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office for recommendations.
Most of the synthetic pyrethroid insecticides on our site would do a great job for earwig control. Talstar P would be a great choice for earwigs. You can spray both indoors and outdoors with this product. Talstar P, one of our best sellers, has a long residual, is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and wont break down easily with rainfall.
