Amy from Suwanee, Ga writes,

How long does it take for Talstar PL granules to work?

We laid down the product for serious ant problems almost 48 hours ago. We're still seeing them running around outside. Is this normal?


Talstar PL granules needs to be watered in to be activated after it has been broadcast across the area, if this has not already been done. Depending on the severity of the ants will depend on how long it takes. It could possibly take 2-3 weeks for full control. The product will last in the soil for 2-3 months.
