Bennie from Desrehan, La. asked:

Q
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
A
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.

Debbie from Conway, Arkansas asked:

Q
Is it okay to mix these two granuals together...Talstar PL and Niban for pest control on yards?
I have an old school tech that refuses to use one or the other pest granuals...he mixes the two together. I am thinking that the Talstar is a repliant and the Niban is more like a bait. Can you help me with this...need to understand the two products.
A
You are absolutely correct. By mixing the 2 products together you are costing yourself money because you are wasting the Niban completely. Using the 2 products together would be the equivalent of someone putting a steak in front of you to eat, but then covering it in bleach prior to you eating it, wouldn't be very inticing would it? Also, the Niban is a bait that although is designed to hold up to some outdoor elements better than other baits, you are still immediately lowering its attractivness as you have to water in the Talstar Granules to activate them. If there is an insect population around that would require a bait be taken back to the colony then the Niban should be used first, let it do its job, then once the population has been taken care of use the Talstar in a follow up treatment to help keep the insects away.

Q
I have a 3 acres of lawn. How many bags of Talstar PL will I need?

anna from phoenix AZ asked:

Q
Will Talstar PL Granules kill bird & rat mites in yard?
A
Talstar PL Granules is not labeled to treat for mites. We first want to make sure the mites have been positively identified as rat and bird mites. You can contact your Local Extension Office and speak with the Entemologist on staff. If so, then we would recommend Onslaught Insecticide. Onslaught produces no odor, is easy to use, and can be used both indoors and outdoors, including in food handling areas (please read directions carefully when using in sensitive environments). Onslaught Liquid Insecticide is micro-encapsulated, meaning that after the product is sprayed, the active ingredient is released slowly over time, producing long-lasting residual control of insect pests.

Kathy from Littlestown, PA asked:

Q
See your listing on BestBuy. It says Diazinon next to the Talstar PL title.
It's my understanding that Seven and Diazinon are organophosphates which are very toxic to earthworms and pollinators, not to mention mammals. Does Talstar PL granules contain diazinon or is this a misprint?
A
Diazinon was banned in the US in 2004 so many customer have looked for products that would do an equal job to Diazinon since it was taken off the market. Talstar in both its liquid and granular form are going to give comparable control but without the huge health hazards to humans and beneficial insects. Talstar has the least dermal toxicity of any product on the market for pyrethroids and is designed to have minimal effect on beneficial insects like earthworms. We link the name Diazinon to the product so those looking for a replacement have a great safe product to find.

Steve from Harlingen, Tx asked:

Q
Can Talstar PL be used for American Cockroach Control?
Will they die if they craw over it or if they eat it?
A

Talstar Granules are not labeled for roach control. This is because the granules will settle at the base of the grass and then after they are watered in, will be even deeper in the soil which will minimize the chance that the roaches will contact the treated areas. You may want to consider using the liquid concentrate Talstar P so you will have better coverage to kill the roaches. The liquid will be on top of the grass and at the base to help control the roaches. The liquid can be used on and in your home as well.

I live in Houston, Texas and the weather here is currently humid and 98, 99, 100 degrees. So..it's very hot and humid.
A
Yes, Talstar granules can be used in high temps. You should wait to apply the product until evening as it will need to be watered in. If you water the granules during the heat of the day you risk the sun scorhing your lawn.

Jan from Scurry Texas asked:

Q
Will the Talstar PL Granules help kill grasshoppers?
I have one acre and 10 million grasshoppers of all sizes. Liquids kills but more just hatch. I think they are in our trees also.
A
While granules do provide a more long term residual on the ground, it may or may not control the grasshoppers any better than a liquid. The ingredient in the Talstar, Bifenthrin, is one of our number one products for controlling grasshoppers. You should start applications before the grasshoppers have a chance to hatch. You should thoroughly spray your lawn and water in the application with about a .25 in of water to help the bifenthrin get past the thatch layer and into the soil where grass hoppers actually develop. If you already have grasshoppers you can use Talstar P at the highest usage rate of 1 oz of product per 1 gallon of water for the quickest knockdown.

Ian from Green Bay,wi asked:

Q
Fire ant mound vs regular ant mound
On the label for fire ant mound treatment it states: fire ant mound treatment: Apply 1/2 cup of Talstar® PL Granular Insecticide per mound and then drench the mound with 1 to 2 gallons of water. The mound should be drenched with sufficient force to break its apex and allow the insecticide to flow into the ant tunnels. For best results, apply in cool weather (65 to 80 ̊F) or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Food utensils such as teaspoons and measuring cups should not be used for food purposes after use with insecticide I was wondering if this was the same instructions that should be used for a regular ant mound or if there are different directions regarding regular ants vs fire ants
A

Julie from San Diego, California asked:

Q
I bought Talstar PL for springtails. Do I have to water it into the lawn or just leave it?
We recently had a tree cut down in our yard and after that we noticed a springtail problem in that area. We also have a pool, and I see some around the pool but not that many.
A
Talstar PL must be watered in to be activated. You can choose to water in the product with a hose or you can apply Talstar PL just before a rain event and let mother nature water in the granules for you.
