Missy from Nola writes,

Can I use Talstar P in my attic?

I have wasps and spiders in my attic getting into my house. Can I spray this in the attic? If so, where can I spray just the rafters or the insulation too? And what do I do about the electrical wires, pipes, and recessed lights in the attic?


You can use Talstar P in your attic in all of the cracks and crevices for insect control. If you have a lot of exposed electrical elements you may want to consider using a dust insecticide instead of the Talstar P in your attic. Dusts like Evergreen dust and Tempo dust will last a lot longer than liquid insecticides and they can be used around the electrical elements you described without worry of shock or shorting out the device.
