Dogs eat stink bugs, safe to use Talstar P?
My dogs tend to eat stink bugs. I know Talstar P is safe around pets once it has dried, but I am concerned that when I spray my screened in porch my dogs will continue to eat the stink bugs that were killed by the Talstar P. Are there any concerns here?
Talstar, when mixed according to the product label with water is only strong enough to kill small insects, like ants or stink bugs. Your dogs would have to eat huge amounts of stinks bugs at one time to have any type of negative effect on them. In most cases your dogs would not be able to consume enough stinkbugs that have come into contact with treated areas for there to be any cause for concern.
