Can you compare Talstar P to Essentria IC3? Does it kill carpenter ants and mosquitoes? Similar pricing?
Talstar P is a water based synthetic pyrethroid and Essentria IC3 is a natural product made up of botanical oils. They contain different active ingredients. They are listed for some of the same insects including ants and mosquitoes. They both have the same length of residual after applied. Essentria IC3 can be applied near water areas without harming aquatic life and Talstar P should NOT be applied to those areas. Talstar is offered in a pint, quart, 3/4 gallon and gallon concentrated bottles and diluted at an ounce per gallon of water. Essentria IC3 is available in a quart and gallon size and you will mix 1-10 oz per gallon of water depending on the insect targeted.
