Can Talstar P be used with an IGR?
Wooded 5 acre lawn surrounded by cattle ranch. Ticks and fleas major issue. Have both dogs and cats who roam - ie bring the beasties home. Animals treated heavily, what to do for yard? need good residual and rain resistance.
Talstar P can be applied with an IGR (insect growth regulator). It is safe for pets as long as they remain out of the area during treatment and return only when the surfaces have dried completely. It should not be applied where there are grazing animals such as cattle. It is labeled for ticks and fleas outside and offers a 30 day outdoor residual.
