Is Talstar an IGR?
i just ordered this product from you, havent used it yet (planned on tonight) but our work has a regular pest control company come in monthly and he just came in here today so i asked him if he knew much about the product. he said that if it's an IGR is should work ok, or if any of the ingredients had 'prene' in it (ex: hydroprene, neoprene, etc). i looked on the bottle that i just received and it doesnt state that it is, or isnt. can you help me with this? i cant find it on the internet either. we are having horrible flea problems and i was so hoping that Talstar would do the truck but according to him it will only work with the IGR, or whatever it is. Please respond as soon as you can. like i stated, we had planned on spraying tonight. thank you!
Talstar P is an insecticide only, it is not an IGR nor does it contain an IGR. Talstar is not really a great choice for indoor flea control because it can not be broadcast sprayed over floors where the fleas tend to harbor. For indoor control you can use Ultracide comes ready to use, no mixing or equipment is needed and it contains both an insecticide for a quick knock down of biting adults and an insect growth regulator (IGR) for control of developing flea eggs and larvae. Infested areas should be thoroughly vacuumed prior to product applications to help remove as much flea eggs, larvae and debris as possible and also to help stimulate larvae to change stages and come into contact with the product. You should continue to vacuum at least every other day for the next two weeks.
