Q
Does Talstar PL Granules kill grubs?
A

No, Talstar PL does not kill grubs. We recommend that you treat in the Spring with something like Merit Granules. We recommend that contact your local cooperative extension office to find out what the best time to treat is in your area. If it's too late to treat and the grubs are actively feeding, then you can use Dylox 420 SL. Our article "How to Get Rid of Grubs" will help guide you.

Q
Does Talstar PL Granules kill chiggers?
We found out the hard way that we have chiggers in an area of our yard we would like to use more. Will this kill them?
A

Talstar PL Granules are not labeled to control chiggers. Talstar P and Onslaught<span new="" roman;="" font-size:medium"=""> are top-notch professional products and both are labeled for chiggers. Onslaught is micro-encapsulated and will last a little longer on outdoor surfaces which does give it a bit of advantage over Talstar P. Treatments for chiggers should begin in May and could need to continue through the summer as new chiggers move into the area. Treating the entire lawn is of little benefit because chiggers avoid direct sunlight and normally will not infest areas that are mowed or otherwise well maintained. Focus treatment on the unkempt areas of the lawn and lawn edge. You can also use Onslaught to do a barrier treatment around the outside of your home and in your crawl space to stop pests from moving indoors.

Q
Can I use Talstar PL Granules for chinch bugs on St. Augustine grass?
A

Talstar PL Granules are one of the most effective chinch bug treatments on the market. Chinch bugs infest the base of grass plants and are often found in the thatch layer. Irrigate the treated area with up to 0.25 inches of water immediately after application to activate (release from the granule) the insecticide. Chinch bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the higher applications rates will be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the summer. It may also be necessary to remove the thatch layer if it exceeds 1 inch in thickness to allow the Talstar to penetrate down to the soil.

If you have a few small spots the St. Augustine runners might fill it in this season (of course water, fertilizer, and lots of sunshine helps). If large portions of the lawn were damaged it will likely be late spring or later of next year before the lawn recovers. Very heavily damaged areas may need to be resodded.

Q
Will Talstar PL Granules help get rid of frogs?
I have a two store house with shutters. A frog decided to live on the top of the shutter on the second floor. It messes the whole wall every day.
A

There are no toxic products labeled for frogs or toads (or reptiles for that matter), and given the highly beneficial nature of these amphibians there is not likely to be anything coming along.The reasons they are on your property are because they can find food and proper habitat, and these are probably your only means for making them go away. Take away their food and they will forage somewhere else. Take away the conditions they need for hiding all day and they will seek refuge someplace else.

Habitat modification may be the more effective way to limit frogs on your property. Frogs are mainly nocturnal, and they seek food at night when it is cooler and damper. During the day they look for cool, damp, dark places to hide. They will hide under dense shrubbery or ground covers, under logs or lumber on the soil, or under large landscape rocks and timbers to avoid the hot, dry sun. Trim shrubbery, remove thick ground-cover, stack lumber or firewood off of the soil a few inches and remove any other objects or debris that come in contact with the soil and can provide harborage. Limit watering to help eliminate moisture from your yard.  You can also reduce the amount of insects (the frogs food source) in your yard by treating the grass with a residual insecticide such as Talstar PL.

Q
How long does it take for Talstar PL granules to work?
We laid down the product for serious ant problems almost 48 hours ago. We're still seeing them running around outside. Is this normal?
A
Talstar PL granules needs to be watered in to be activated after it has been broadcast across the area, if this has not already been done. Depending on the severity of the ants will depend on how long it takes. It could possibly take 2-3 weeks for full control. The product will last in the soil for 2-3 months.

Q
How does Talstar PL work? Are pests killed on contact?
A
Talstar PL Granules manages insects by paralyzing the central nervous system through contact and ingestion. However, Talstar PL Granules do not kill insects on contact. It does take some time for insects to fall victim to the effects of the insecticide.

05/05/2015jessie from South Florida asked:

Q
What setting to use for a Scotts Speedy Green 3000 to apply Talstar PL?
A

The easiest way to determine the correct setting for you needs is outlined below:

If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,00 sq ft you would  add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high.

Q
What is the difference between Talstar PL and Talstar XTRA?
I've treated the perimeter of my home with Talstar PL every year (great results) and when I got ready to order a replacement bag, I spotted the Talstar XTRA. Looks like it could be better for ant treatment out in the lawn. Is Talstar EXTRA as good as Talstar PL for perimeter treatment? Could I use one of the Talstar treatments for both perimeter use and ant control in the yard?
A
Talstar Xtra contains Bifenthrin plus Zeta-Cypermethrin.  The granular size is different as well. The Talstar PL is more sandy like. Both great granulars!

Q
I have a lesco commercial spreader. What is the setting recommended setting per acre?
I live on an acre and a quarter in northwest Florida and want to be able to approximate as accurately as possible how many 25lb bags I need. Thank you
A
A 25 lb bag of Talstar PL granules will treat 5,000-10,000 square feet. Depending on the speed you going will determine exactly how many bags you will need. 5-6 bags of the Talstar PL would treat an acre at the lower rate. We would recommend contacting the manufacturer of the spreader to get the settings that should be used. The weight of the Talstar PL granule is 0.2%.

09/29/2014Ryan from New Orleans, LA asked:

Q
Can the Talstar PL Granules be spread underneath a deck?
I have a deck that is only about 6 inches off the ground and it's underneath a patio cover. The result is that is stays damp underneath the deck. Can I broadcast this over the deck and sweep it between the cracks to help control mosquitoes? I know it won't be perfect uniform coverage, but something is better than nothing, right? If you have any other suggestions on a product or how to control the mosquitoes under the deck, I'm open to sugestions.
A
To concentrate on the area under the decking, using Talstar P which is the liquid form of Talstar PL Granules. This would provide a better and more thorough application under the deck. This depends on the size of the gap between the decking boards as well. Using a hand pump sprayer, mix 1oz of Talstar per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft area. For mosquito control, you want to spray the perimeter of the home 3ft up and 3ft out from the side of the structure focusing on any damp areas and the underside of bushes, leaves and trees around the home (where mosquitos breed and harbor) We recommend keeping the applications of Talstar PL Granules to broadcasting over the lawn. If there is standing water in gutters, troughs, bird baths around the house, using the BTI Mosquito Dunks are a great option as well.

Q
Is Talstar PL granules effective for cockroaches migrating from an infested home next door ?

It is a liquid and can be broadcast across your lawn. It can also be sprayed on trees (non-edibles), flowers, shrubs, etc. You will mix 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. One gallon will treat 1000 sq. ft. The residual outdoors is up to 30 days. Bifen IT can also be used indoors as a crack and crevice spray along the baseboards in your home. The residual indoors is up to 90 days. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
