Michael from Pensacola, Florida asked:

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%.

Ryan 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 ?

Talstar PL granules are not labeled for cockroaches. We would recommend using Bifen IT. This product has the same active ingredient as Talstar PL, however the concentrate has more of the active ingredient in it and will combat the cockroaches effectively. 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.

Barbara from Trego, Montana asked:

Q
Can I spread Talstar PL in my flower beds to kill millipedes?
This spring, after a wet winter, most of my root type perennials were devoured by millipedes. I want to plant new plants for summer and fall. Should I spread the product before planting or does it matter?
A

No, Talstar PL granules should not be used in a flower bed. It is labeled mainly for turf use.

We would recommend using Bifen IT for your ornamental plants. It can be sprayed directly on the plants and is labeled specifically for millipedes as well as various other pests as well. You will use 1 oz. of the solution per gallon of water.

Tom from Bonita, California asked:

Q
Earthway C22HD settings
I have the Earthway C22HD spreader (which you sell) I read the Talstar info sheet and they did not list the setting for my spreader. Is there a cross reference chart?
A
Yes, we would recommend looking at the product label for the Earthway C22HD. Talstar PL granules are fine (the size of sand) so the spread width is 5-7 feet. You will need to test the spread width of the product in the spreader and then the setting rate can be established.

Ronald from The Villages, FL 32159 asked:

Q
How do I get rid of roaches in my lawn.
A
Outdoor roach control can be tough because the moist conditions in your yard will always attract more roaches from surrounding areas. You can apply a granular insecticide to help limit the amount of roaches in yard.  Talstar PL will work well for this use and are safe for you to apply to your lawn.

Louise from Ingram, TX asked:

Q
Which is more effective for killing scorpions -- granular or solution Talstar?
I have a serious scorpion problem on my ranch since I don't go out there very often. Every time I go out to the hill country, I spray Talstar solution and it works great. I am wondering which is more effective and which lasts longer in this dry climate -- the solution or granular form of Talstar? Or are they the same?
A
Granules can typically last 2-3 months whereas liquids like Talstar P will last about 30 days maybe more on outside surfaces.  For scorpions specifically you would want to go with the Cy-Kick CS that will sit on top of the surface better than granules and being microencapsulated will last on outside surfaces closer to 60 days.  The Talstar PL granules would be great to use for the insects the scorpions feed on though.

Can I use Talstar pl if i have a citrus tree in my yard
I have 1 satsuma tree in my yard and i do not know if i can use talstar pl in the grass around it

You can use Talstar Pl, because it wont leach into the soil. We would not recommend applying right up against the tree. Depending on what you are treating for you can use Monterey Fruit tree spray. Please let us know if you have any more questions.

Sharon from Lakeland Florida asked:

Q
Do you have a product that will kill frogs
I have frogs all over my porch at night and they make a huge mess and want to jump on me when I am sitting outdoors
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.
