How should I use Talstar to get rid of millipedes?
I bought Talstar P (Talstar One) to get rid of millipedes. The millipedes are around my garage doors on both my garages and they are slowly getting into my home. I have used this product per the directions, but it hasn't made a difference. It kills the ones I can see, but the next day more are back. I have not only sprayed the perimeter of my house/garages, but all the cracks in the concrete. what am I doing wrong?
What concentration are you using? We recommend using the highest rate of 1 ounce per gallon of water for millipedes. Also, insects do not die as soon as they touch Talstar P. It takes time for them to actually die after coming in contact with the dry residual. You need to give the product time to work. Millipedes are going to be in areas that have a lot of moisture, so finding a way to get rid of some of the moisture will be helpful too. If you have mulch around your house you need to make sure you rake it back at least 6 inches from the base of the house and turn the mulch frequently.
