Can I spray another application of Talstar P for army worms? I sprayed four days ago.

I applied one ounce of Talstar One four days ago at dusk. I noticed tonight that there are still moths and worms. Is it safe to apply another application, or is it to soon? How long does it take to get rid of these pests? If it is to soon, do you have any other suggestions? Thank you so much.


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).
