Roy from Saucier Ms (south Ms) writes,
I applied talstar to my yard and it rained for two days afterwards. Do you think it washed away?
I'm trying to kill mole crickets and see a couple of the little dirt mounds have popped back up. How long does it take to start working on the crickets?
Talstar XTRA granules need to be on the ground for at least 24 hours before it rains so that is has time to get into the soil and not wash away. When treating for mole crickets, it does need to be watered in at least 0.5 inches of water after it has been applied.
