Can you suggest a bomb for thrips to use in my home and truck?

I used Talstar P to try and get rid of the thrips but it doesn't seen to be working. I'm also using a professional lawn service to treat the yard. They are using Talstar P also. This has gone on for two months now and my house and truck are infested completely. Please help me with my problem.

Answer:

There are not any foggers or bombs that are labeled for thrips. Of course this doesn't mean that the fogger will not kill thrips, only that the manufacturer hasn't intended it for this type of use or that they haven't tested the product for this pest. There are no foggers that you can use in your vehicle as the space is much too small to accommodate the foggers requirements. We do carry a fogger that you could use in your home, Pro Control Plus Total Release which contains two active ingredients 0.50% Pyrethrins for a fast knockdown, 0.10% Cyfluthrin for a long lasting residual. Also, Talstar P will take time to kill thrips and you should allow several weeks to see the complete results. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office to request an insect identification if you have not done so already. Failure to properly identify an insect can lead to a pest control program failure as different insects require different treatments.
