Q&A Home

Nilda from Miami, Florida writes,

My pest control guy sprayed Talstar on my fruit trees...lychees & mango! Help!

The first thing I told this guy is that I wanted to make sure that whatever he used on my fruit trees was safe because we eat from them. Now he tells me he used Talstar and I've been reading it's not to be used on fruit trees or any edible plants. What can I do now?? Can this stuff be rinsed off??? Please help.


Any fruit that was sprayed should be discarded. Please call the manufacturer of Talstar, FMC, for further instructions 800-321-1362.
