Q
Will Talstar harm reptiles?
A
As long as the reptiles are out of the area while you are doing the actual application of the Talstar, it shouldn't effect them. You will most likely see a reduction in the reptile populations on your property though as you will be eliminating their food source (insects).

Q
Looking for something to mix in with 2 4d, or fertilizer to kill fire ants. Can I do that with Talstar?
A
Talstar will kill the ants (including fire ants) that come in direct contact with the treated areas. It is recommended by the manufacturer to apply as a mound drench for treating this ant species. Please refer to page 10 of the product label for detailed application instructions.

Q
How to get rid of gnats in house
They are in kitchen and living room
A
First, be sure to check any house plants for larvae. If you have nouse plants, be sure to let the soil dry up a bit. You can use 565 Plus to flush out any areas like cracks and crevices they could be breeding in. The Flyweb Flylight is also a key component to catching the ones fliying around.

Q
Can Talstar and Cyper WP be combined in solution for simultaneous application?
My pest control operator states that is what he is doing
A
There is no real reason to mix both Talstar and Cyper. They kill pretty much the same insects. One or the other would most likely do the job.

Q
Will Talstar P (Talstar One) kill gnats & roaches?
I started getting an infestation of gnats this spring. I have tried everything from foggers to home remedies. The gnats are in my basement/garage. There is a lot of dirt areas around the perimeter inside the garage area. It cannot be removed. (Old house, 1920). Anyway, please help me!
A

Yes, Talstar P (Talstar One) is labeled for gnats and roaches. You will use 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. This can be sprayed around the perimeter of your home, on trees, bushes, broadcast across your lawn, etc. It cannot be sprayed on any type of edibles or area where animals would graze.

We would also recommend mixing the Talstar P (Talstar One) with Gentrol IGR. This will stop the roaches from reproducing for up to four months.

Q
What is the best product for yellow jackets and hornets?
I saw my old pest company use Talstar on them but I didn't think that was the most effective product available
A

Talstar P (Talstar One) is a wonderful general pesticide. It is labeled to be used on yellow jackets and hornets. You will use 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. Applications should be done at night when the pests are alight. Spray heavily in areas where they hide and breed. Apply again only if there is new insect activity. This would be an excellent residual product for the yellow jackets and hornets.

If you know where the nests are and can readily reach them, we would recommend using Wasp-X. This product can be used up to 15 feet away from the nest. This product will foam and cover the nest. It will provide a knockdown and fast kill of hornets and yellow jackets.

Q
How can I get rid of my roaches?
I bought Talstar and have been using it for 2 weeks. The roaches are getting worse instead of better. I also used Invict Gold bait. What am I doing wrong?
A
While Talstar will kill roaches that come in contact with it, it will not stop the problem. Make sure you are not baiting where you have sprayed. Also, be sure that you are only applying little green pea size dabs of bait and re baiting once a week. We would also recommend to include Gentol IGR Point Source. Gentrol Point Source is a special Roach control device that contains the Gentrol Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) hydroprene for 90-day control of roaches and other stored product pests. Activating Gentrol Point Source is as simple as squeezing the raised end of the plastic, adhesive-back device. This releases Gentrol IGR onto a filter paper. From there, it moves up to 75 square feet, damaging adult roaches and preventing them from reproducing.

Q
what can i use for inside and outside for general insect kill
I am currently on a quarterly spray but would like to do my own to save me money ,I would like to known what all in one product I could mix and apply that would kill most common insects and bugs that won't pets or leave a white residue on things. Also I would like mouse blocks that can be used in boxes and also just thrown under the house . Please show what your best options are in a concentrate to mix and use on a quarterly basis. Thanks
A

Talstar P is labeled for over 75 types of insects and our most popular insecticide for general pest control. Talstar P has a residual of 30 days outside (perimeter or broadcast spray) and 90 days inside the home(crack and crevice) Talstar One is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.

For Mice control, depending on the level of infestation we recommend the Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Stations Case(12 Stations) with Fastrac Blox. These stations hold 1 bait blox and can be placed in corners where mice travel. Fastrac is a quick knockdown rodenticide with a Stop feed action after consuming lethal dose, usually within 12-48 hours.

If you are needing a larger bait station, we recommend the Protecta Mouse Bait Station that can hold up to 4 standard size blox. These would work better for you under the home.

Q
What causes could there be for ants coming back within a week?
I live in central SC with sandy soil. Talastar kills the ants and other insects well, but I have new mounds in as little as 5-7 days. I have broadcast sprayed, treated mounds at a rate of 1 oz, per gallon and it doesn't seem to have the lasting effect of 3-4 months like advertised.
A
Ant bait products are the best solution for effective argentine ant control and small black ant control. Ant baits will hit the colony at the source, whereas insecticide sprays such as Talstar P will only cause stress on the colony, causing it to split into a larger number of sub-colonies, making the infestation worse. We would recommend using our Complete Ant Kit which comes with both a sugar based bait as well as a protein based bait to ensure bait acceptance regardless of what the ants are lacking nutritionally. We would also like you to read over our staff written article, How To Get Rid of Argentine Ants to learn more.

Q
Talstar for winter moths
I would like to spray my own property to deal with mainly winter moth but also Japanese beetles and aphids. Should a respirator be worn and is full body suit needed? Also, I am looking for suggestion on an affordable pump/sprayer setup. I'm sure the setups to get 80-100 feet up are way too expensive but maybe something to do 40-60 feet up using a 55 gallon drum.
A

Talstar P (Talstar One) is labeled for moths and beetles. It is not labeled for aphids.

We would recommend using Demand CS. It is labeled for moths, adult Japanese beetles and aphids. This can be sprayed on ornamental plants and across your lawn. Use 1.5 – 5 fl. oz (44-148 mL) / 100 gallons of water – May be applied at 7-day intervals if necessary. Use lower dilution rates for more frequent applications or limit to spot treatment. The addition of a spreader sticker may increase application to waxy foliage. It can also be used indoors as well. You will use 0.4 fl. oz. per gallon of water. You will spray along the baseboards and cracks and crevices.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Q
need to get rid of crickets in my home.
tthey appear on occassion
A
Talstar P is labeled for crickets and can be used inside and outside the home. Indoors as a crack and crevice treatment it provides a 90 day residual. When Talstar P is applied outdoors as a perimeter treatment or as a broadcast treatment, it will leave a 30 day residual. Talstar P is labeled for over 75 types of insects and is a great product for general pest control.

09/15/2014Brian asked:

Q
Is the residual harmful to humans?
If Talstar works by creating a residual that the bugs come in contact with and eventually die, won't that same residual, for example, if applied to a fence that my young kids touch, negatively affect them? Yes, I already understand that it is odorless and clear, but I was thinking about the residual and how it must also be absorbed by humans when they touch the same sprayed surfaces over the subsequent 3 month before reapplying.
A
No, Talstar P (Talstar One) is not harmful to humans if they come in contact with it after it is dry. It will not affect children if they touch the fence because it is none irritating if it touches the skin. It is recommended for children to not be in the area until the product is completely dry. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

09/13/2014rose from Clifton, virginia asked:

Q
Do I open both caps and seals? Do I squeeze the container to get the solution to the measuring chamber?
A
Yes, to utilize the Talstar P bottle, you will need to remove both caps and both seals below the caps if there are some there. (some products come with them, some don't) Once that process is finished, replace the cap over the larger portion of the bottle and then squeeze the bottle itself. This will cause the solution to run up the straw like tube on the side of the bottle and into the measuring reservoir for you to know exactly how much you need per gallon of water.

09/10/2014clarke from Barbados asked:

Q
Should Talstar PL be used in an enclosed office with no windows, just air condition vents?
A

When applying Talstar P, as long as the area has had time to dry, there should not be any concern. Rooms should remain vacant until the product has had time to dry. Talstar P is ok to use as crack and crevice treatment along baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas.

09/09/2014Brian from Livermore, CA asked:

Q
Is Talstar effective on black widows & wasps/yellow jackets & if so, at what concentration?
I recently used this around the outside of my home and the fence perimeter, as well as along the roof-line, where I have had a bad problem with either wasps/Yellow jackets (not sure on identification, but suspect wasp). Besides the wasps, I was having a bad problem along the fence line with black widows. I have the three-quarter gallon, and that seemed difficult to measure and pour versus what I read about a smaller bottle with a tip and measure system. Next time will purchase qt. size. I used 1 ounce to 1 gallon of water in my sprayer. Is that the right concentration for my aforementioned problems? And, with my subsequent follow-up applications at approximately three or four months out, will that be the same one ounce or a half an ounce concentration? Lastly, is Talstar or Bifen, effective on black widows and wasps/Yellow jackets?
A
The highest rate for usage with the Talstar or Bifen would be 1oz per gallon just as you have used. Depending on how heavy the population of the wasps/yellow jackets and spiders are, will depend on whether you will have to reapply in the beginning every month or not. If the population is heavy and large now, it would be recommended to spray all the areas favorable for these pest and their food sources every month until the numbers have dimenished, and then you can easily back off to spraying quarterly (every 3 months) to help keep them at bay. Each time you spray the 1oz per gallon rate would be the correct and accurate rate to use. The Talstar will kill any wasp or similar species that lands on a surface it has been sprayed on. It will not be a contact kill but as they pick the product up on their bodies after landing, they will slowly ingest it as they groom themselves and die from it. While spiders can be killed by the Talstar/Bifen, you tend to control spider populations more in an indirect way. If you have lots of spiders of any species around the home, then you have high numbers of other little insects around the home that they are feeding on. The Talstar/Bifen will eliminate those insects and in turn cause the spiders to search elsewhere for food. They need food and shelter to survive in any area and if the Talstar removes the food sources, then they will have to move away from your home to live.

Q
How much Talstar P should you mix to spray in your lawn?
What is the recommended mixture for lawn pests, such as mole crickets??
A
You will mix 1 fl. oz. of Talstar P (Talstar One) per gallon of water for general pest control. For mole crickets, applications should be made as late in the day as possible and should be watered in with at least 0.5 inches of water immediately after treatment. If the lawn is not moist before treatment, it is recommended that you irrigate the lawn to bring the mole crickets to the surface.  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Q
Do you have a program to cover the major insect pests: ants, spiders, roaches, termites?
We don't have a specific problem, although we notice some spiders, and an occasional ant or roach every few months. I'd like to start a regular program to make sure we never develop a problem. Currently, I set out roach traps every 6 months and use a fire ant bait every year in the yard.
A

Our most popular general use product is called Talstar.  It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer.  It will last for 60 to 90 days outside in between treatments.  It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf eating pests.

We have a great article here on doing your own quarterly pest control.

Q
Looking for product to control sod-web worms and other lawn pests including chinch bugs in FL.
Bermuda, St. Augustine and Zoysia. May have cinch bugs as well. Tired of using products that don't work.
A

The most popular product for sod webworms is Talstar. Talstar is very effective on most insects including chinch bugs and it is gentle to plants. Time applications to control young larvae, if possible. Spot treatments may be applied when infestations are first detected and the damaged area is small. The treatment will be most effective if applied in the early evening when larvae begin feeding. Please check with your local cooperative extension office to see if a second generation is possible in one season in your region.
