How long can I save diluted Talstar One in my handheld sprayer?

I have a townhouse and tiny yard and would like to start doing spraying on my own. I know I won't use anywhere near a gallon at each application, so can I fill the sprayer and then use it each time I need to apply it? Or do I have to somehow dispose of it each time?

Answer:

You cannot store diluted Talstar in your sprayer for two reasons: 1. Talstar P will start to breakdown rapidly when kept in a diluted solution. 2. Storing chemicals or even just water in your sprayer will make the valves and gaskets corrode. We recommend you simply mix up smaller batches of solution. For instance you can mix 1/2 oz of Talstar P with 1/2 gallon of water in your pump sprayer or a 1/4 oz of Talstar with 1/4 gallon of water instead of mixing more than you need.
