Is Talstar safe to spray around rivers, ponds, and lakes?
Talstar is highly toxic to all aquatic life and should not be used near any bodies of water including rivers, ponds or lakes. We do carry several products like Essentria IC3 that works similar to the Talstar but is a natural product that is completely safe for aquatic life. Please see the product label for full usage insructions depending on what pest you are treating for. On average, the manufacturer recommends using 1-2 oz of Essentria IC3 to every gallon of water.
