07/19/2015John from PA asked:

Q
Since Talstar is a residual killer, what would you recommend for an instant knockdown?
I'm looking for something with instant knockdown on the same variety of pests Talstar can handle.
A

To get a faster initial knockdown when applying Talstar you can add a synergist like ExciteR or Exponent to kill insects on contact during application or you can use either alone.  The residual of Talstar will be left behind, but once the synergist dries will be gone.

Q
How do you compare Bifen/Talstar P versus Tempo SC?
I am using to kill mosquitoes in the yard by backpack sprayer/mister and also applying along perimeter of home and area where ant hide. Are both equally effective or would one be superior in any way?
A

Bifen IT and/or Talstar P and Tempo SC Ultra are very good products for mosquito control. The biggest difference between them is that they have two different active ingredients. They are both great insecticides and can be alternated so that there is no pest resistance built up.

Q
Is Talstar P labeled to treat for pill bugs and grubs?
A

Talstar P is labeled to be used for Pill Bugs but is not labeled to treat for grubs. Dylox 6.2 would be an excellent alternative when treating for grubs that are actively feeding. Please read the product label for application instructions.

07/09/2015Thaddeus from Virginia Beach, VA asked:

Q
Can Talstar P be applied with a sponge to metal window frames?
I don't want to use a sprayer because I'm afraid the spray will mess up the window glass.
A

A hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer would be the preferred method of application for using Talstar P, a sponge would be not recommended.  When treating around doors and windows you will want to spray around the frame of the windows themselves and where the windows slide past each other when opening  You would not need to spray the glass to get an effective treatment but can spray screens if needed.

Q
Is the residual harmful to young children and pets if it gets re-wet?
For example; a toddler spilles milk on the floor where the Talstar was treated or the dog spilled water everywhere on the floor including the baseboards where the Talstar was sprayed and dried.
A

Talstar will not be reconstituted and become dangerous if it gets wet. Talstar can be taken off of a surface if gets gets washed up with soap and water and would need to be reapplied. Please contact us at 1-866-581-7378 for and further information.

07/08/2015Monique from El Paso tx asked:

Q
When can you clean the floors after the inside of your house has been sprayed with Talstar?
With that question: does cleaning the floor remove any residue left after it's dry? And if the floor gets wet where the spray was dry is it bad for young children and pets?
A

Talstar is meant to be applied to cracks and crevices not as a broadcast to floors. If you do mop an area that Talstar has been applied, then you could potentially take the product up and Talstar would need to be re applied.

Q
Will Talstar work for centipedes?
Is Talstar safe inside and around kids?
A

 would be a good choice to use around the inside and outside of your home to eliminate centipedes. Indoors you can apply Talstar P to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, and any other place where the insects can gain entry. Outdoors you should apply the product to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, around the bottom of the foundation and out onto the ground directly around the foundation. You can also limit favorable conditions that the centipedes need to thrive.

Q
We have pine beetles all over our apartment building and they are coming inside, how can we get rid of them
A
Any beetles that are on the outside of the building trying to get in you can treat with a product like Talstar P. Talstar is a great general insecticide that dries clear, is odorless and covers beetles of all types and hundreds of other insects. You can spray it around the foundation of the home and around window and door frames they may be trying to come in through. You can also safely spray down the nearby trees and plants they may be coming from or harboring in. You typically spray Talstar at the rate of 1oz per gallon of water every 30-60 days depending on how the weather affects the products residual over time.

Q
Bermuda grass turning brown after being sprayed with Talstar P.
I sprayed my Bermuda grass when it was around 92 degrees in the afternoon. My grass is now turning brown, is this normal? Will my grass be okay?
A
We do advise not spraying Talstar P during the heat of day to avoid scorching your lawn which is what could have happened to your lawn.  When used as directed Talstar should not harm the grass and it should be ok after a while with watering and time as the product is not a systemic that would be absorbed through the plant.

Q
My silver maple has sun scald, splitting bark with earwigs, and some borers. Will Talstar P help?
I prefer to buy the most efficient, least expensive product. Thank you!
A

Sunscald that has caused the bark to split will often heal on its own in otherwise healthy trees. If you experience rapid temperature fluctuations at the end of winter and in early spring, then you may want to wrap trees that are sensitive to this condition to help prevent sunscald. Talstar P is a versatile inseticide concentrate that is safe for use on many ornamentals and is labeled for over 75 pests. Talstar P is also water-based, so it should not cause additional stress to the strees. You may also want to consult an arborist to be sure your trees are receiving enough water to recover from the bark split, and to check if it may need additional nutrients.

Q
Will storing Talstar P in sunlight or heat ruin the product?
I've had the bottle in the back of my truck for a few weeks, and the last couple time I've used it I'm still seeing spiders afterwards. I've never had a problem before.
A
We recommend storing Talstar P in a cool dry place away from any direct sunlight or any extreme temperatures. Leaving the bottle in direct sunlight and high tempatures may cause the chemicals to break down and become less effective.

Q
Earwig Infestation
I have hundreds of earwigs that crawl on the exterior of my home - foundation and siding all the way to the eaves of my house. We get 5 to 10 inside a day. I need a powerful granule to kill them in the ground and something to prevent them from crawling on the side of the house. I have a .5 acres of land and have done everything I can do to keep the area around my house cleaned up. I have caulked the obvious cracks and put up weather stripping.
A
First, do you have mulch or pinstraw around your home? If so, pull that off your house.  Talstar P would be a great choice for earwigs. You can spray both indoors and outdoors with this product. Talstar P, one of our best sellers, has a long residual, is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and wont break down easily with rainfall. Also, be sure to focus on mulched areas, or areas that hold moisture in the lawn.
