Talstar XTRA Granules

The broad spectrum control of new Talstar XTRA granular insecticide is labeled for use against most ants (including fire ants) as well as chinch bugs, fleas, ticks, mole crickets, crane flies and many other lawn pests. Talstar XTRA Granules are an excellent choice for fire ant control --Talstar XTRA granular is proven to eliminate dangerous fire ant colonies in four hours or less. Which means you can help your customer return to their yards with complete peace of mind, sooner than you ever thought possible.

This innovative granule is approved for broadcast lawn, perimeter and mound treatments, making it a versatile and valuable component of your ongoing pest control program. And because it achieves impressive results even at low application rates, Talstar XTRA granular insecticide is an excellent, cost-effective solution for fast-acting, long-lasting protection.

What makes the granule unique is Verge Granule Technology. FMC has made the granules the exact same shape and size for better, more uniform distribution during application. The Verge Granule is made from a clay material that dissolves in under one minute when watered in making sure the active ingredients are delivered quickly and efficiently. As an added bonus the Verge Granule is odor-free and almost completely dustless.




Fire Ant Control

Research trials and field tests conducted by industry professionals have proven that with the addition of its powerful new active ingredient (Zeta-Cypermethrin), Talstar XTRA granular insecticide eliminates fire ant colonies within four hours or less. And in some cases, the fire ant populations were decimated in minutes, not hours. At these speeds, other products can’t even come close to the control of Talstar XTRA granular insecticide.

Excellent Residual

In addition to its breakthrough active ingredient, Talstar XTRA granular insecticide has been formulated with the same long-lasting residual of Talstar PL granular insecticide, for the highly dependable control professionals have come to expect. While fire ants and other pests can be gone in as little as minutes, the residual protection of Talstar XTRA granular insecticide is proven to remain effective for at least four months.

Flexibility

Talstar XTRA is approved for use on a wide variety of application sites, including residential lawns, institutional grounds, around buildings (public, commercial and industrial), parks, recreational areas and athletic fields.

    4 of 5 stars  Just OK
    By Bubba in Orlando, Florida on 10/16/2010

    This product worked great... at first. Applied it correctly and it was like a nuclear bomb went off - no ants, no crickets, no anything. However, a week or so went by and the ants were back. Why? Probably because of local control. I have lots of sandy spots and those don't take to the poison well? I find the liquid talstar HARDER to apply, but it works better in all conditions. For some reason the granular works well for yards and areas with no sand, etc. The granules are also hard to spread in landscape beds. Talstar as a whole is the BEST so maybe the answer is to buy granular for the grassy areas that are usually large and hard to cover with spray and then buy the spray for the landscaping beds and sandy spots in your lawn. Either way BE CAREFUL this stuff is so toxic that in minutes lizards, crickets, and ants start to flee their hiding places and you'll find them everywhere... dead! 5 stars for the liquid Talstar for sure, 4 stars for Talstar XTRA because despite the fact it has pretty ant(s) on the packaging it is not that great for ant(s) and may not work around planting beds, near sidewalks, and/or empty patches in lawns.

    5 of 5 stars  Talstar Granules
    By Robert in Macon, GA on 04/14/2012
    Verified Purchase

    I put the granules out around the shrubbery and foundation of the house according to directions. I used the Talstar spray a month ago on the walls of the house. My roach problem has almost been elimintated. The Roaches I do see don't feel so good. Along with most other houses in Macon, last week we had our yearly infestation of redbugs crawling everywhere - except where that I had sprayed with Talstar. Good stuff and I like the lack of odor and ease of use. Make certain you have a good spreader.

    We were getting ready to have a big birthday party for the Grandson and found too many fire ants to take the chance. We used the Talstar Xtra on the recomendation of a friend who is in the pest control business. We spread 50 pounds with the lawn spreader and didn't see one ANT at the party. Great product, Thanks.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Fantastic Product Works As Advertised!!
    By John in Fenton, Michigan on 09/05/2017

    Our home was being overrun by millipedes outside as well as in our walkout basement. For the past couple years we've seen an increase in pest activity. I've been using Talstar P liquid around the perimeter of the home with great success, however with the increased activity I was looking for a product that would act faster with a lasting residual affect. I applied the Talstar XTRA Granules using a hand spreader and watered in per the instructions. Results were immediate and the siege has been halted. I will continue to purchase both products without hesitation. Do My Own Pest Control has provided superb service!

  • 1 of 5 stars  Ineffective Against Sod Webworms
    By Anthony in Spring Texas on 09/05/2017
    Verified Purchase

    I read the reviews about this product and had high hopes it would address my pest issue. I was interested in a product that could deal with my sod webworm issue. The sod webworms are a major pests in the Spring Texas. So, after reading the reviews, I purchased 3 bags of the Talstar XTRA Granules($120.84) in July 2017. Prior to applying the granules, I mowed the lawn closer than normal. I used a traditional mini broadcast spreader and handheld broadcast spreader to apply the granules to both the lawn and flower beds. After a few days, I monitored the lawn and flower beds. Initially, I noticed a slight decrease in the number sod webworms hanging around my entrance area to the house and the flower beds. I assumed the product was having an impact on the pest. Although, there was still a number of sod webworms flying around in the entrance area over the next few days. Later that evening, I applied another application(25lbs bag) of the Talstar XTRA Granules to the front lawn and flower beds again. And I made sure that the lawn was mowed prior to application. No luck. The pesky sod webworms were back in force the following week. If you have an issue with sod webworms, I would not recommend this product. I just placed an order for Bifen Granules, Bifen XTS and Cyzmic CS Micro-encapsulated Insecticide. Hopefully, the combination of products will eliminate the annoying and destructive pest.

    This product seems to control every insect on the planet except grub worms which is whats eating up my grass. They're the number one pest in my area of Florida that destroys St. Augustine. So next time I'll skip this product and use a systematic approach.

    By Shawn in Covington, LA on 08/13/2017

    I used the liquid version multiple times. The last time I used the liquid version it rained soon after applying so I bought this. Seems to be working good. I haven't seen any bugs in my back yard. It's a little easier to apply than the liquid. Will buy again and use.

    By Marc in Myrtle Beach SC on 07/26/2017

    This product did not work. My neighbors husband passed this summer. She had many mole cricket tunnels. She wet her yard, I spread the Talstar out at a lower end density on the recommended amount. She reset her yard. 2 weeks later it's worse. Using soapy water I got 5 crickets in a 2 ft square! She needs help but appears Talstar not working.

QWhat is the coverage of a 25lb bag of Talstar XTRA Granules?

AEach bag of Talstar Xtra Granules will cover 5,000 to 10,000 square feet. Depending on the pest you are treating, you would use 2.3 - 4.6 lbs per 1000 square feet for most insects (50 to 100lbs are required per acre). Please see the product label for specific treatment guidelines depending on the pest you are treating.

QCan Talstar Xtra be used around fruit trees?

ATalstar Xtra Granules cannot be used around a fruit tree or vegetable garden but can safely be used in a flower garden.

QWill Talstar XTRA Granules kill sod webworms moths, larvae and the worm stages?

A

Talstar Xtra Granules is a broad spectrum insecticide and would work well to treat the soil the sod webworms are nesting in. The label does not specify what stage of the webworm it treats.†The key to Sod Webworm control is focusing on the larvae, therefore while Talstar Xtra is a great produt, depending on the severity of the damage, Provaunt WDG Insecticide might work better as its main focus is the larvae stage of worms and caterpillars.

The larva feed mostly at night. Therefore, controlling sod webworms with chemicals successfully means spraying in late afternoon to ensure ingestion of the poison.

For the moth stage, spraying Talstar P Liquid Insectide to plants, trees, bushes, shrubs, etc and focusing on the underside of the leaves will help with the moth control.†

Please take a moment to review our How to Treat for Sod Webworm Treatment Guide.†

A

Talstar XTRA Granules†does list ticks on the product label and gives instructions for using it for them. †It would really only be good for the young ticks still in the soil and not those on plants, trees, rocks or other non soil areas, for these applications a liquid product would be recommended. †We have a great Outdoor Flea/Tick Kit that we would recommend using.
