Do I need to wear a respirator, face mask or gloves while handling and applying Talstar P?
My son is concerned about needing to buy a respirator, gloves etc to protect himself while spraying. Is this necessary? I want to be able to reassure him he will not be harmed during the spraying process. Also, if the product is premixed and he has extra, what is the best way to dispose of the excess premixed solution?
According to the Talstar P product label, unless you are applying Talstar P in a small confined area that you can not immediately exit after the application, it is usually not necessary to use a respirator. We do recommend either wearing gloves or thoroughly washing your hands after handling insecticides. You should try not to mix more than you need, but in the event that you do, you will pour the unused solution out right up against the foundation of the structure.
