Is Talstar toxic/harmful to frogs and lizards?
I live in Tampa FL and have many frogs and lizards in my yard, I love my little frog and lizard pals and would be devastated if I made them sick or killed them! I also have a lot of mean, nasty fire ants and creepy spiders that I want to make sick and die. Will applying Talstar harm my frog and lizard friends? I cant seem to find any eco-friendly products that pack the same punch as Talstar.
As long as the frogs and lizards are out of the area while you are doing the actual application of the Talstar granules it shouldn't effect them. You will most likely see a reduction in the frog and lizard populations on your property though as you will be eliminating their food source (insects).
