I live in AZ and need to spray the yard for fleas. Will anything work in this heat?
Sprayed Talstar P in yard and it dried in seconds. Do I need NyGuard with the Talstar p?
We highly recommend using an Insect Growth Regulator when doing outdoor treatment For fleas. The best IGR to use outside because it does not breakdown easily in direct sunlight is Archer IGR. In a 1 gallon pump sprayer, mix 1 fl oz of Archer IGR with 1 fl oz of Talstar P with 1 gallon of water. Apply the solution over a 1,000 sq ft area. Water the yard to ensure the solution gets into the thatch layer where the Flea Larvae are residing. Archer IGR has been known to last 7 months outside, and Talstar P needs to be applied every 30 days for outside flea control. Please follow the label instructions for applications. We recommend applying the product in early morning or late afternoon.
