Karen from Odessa, FL asked:

Q
What is the best treatment for noseeums?
I live in Florida on a lake with a wooded lot next door. I can't go outside for more than 5 minutes without being bitten by noseeums and coming in with itchy welts on my legs and arms. Willing to try anything to get rid of them. My extension office said that there wasn't anything which will get rid of noseeums/midges. Is this true? If you have a product or products which work, i am willing to try them. I love the outdoors but it does not love me back!
A

The breeding sites for these flies are so numerous and varied, it is impossible to eliminate them all. These tiny pests are small enough to crawl through the average window screen and fit through cracks and crevices around windows and door frames.

You can help prevent these flies from entering your home by spraying a barrier application of Talstar P paying special attention to window frames, window screens, door frames, and cracks and crevices that may be used as points of entry.  A screen with a very fine mesh (smaller than 16mesh) will help prevent entry. Additionally, it may be helpful to keep ceiling fans and window fans on at high speeds to keep insects out of small areas.

If flies have already entered your home and you need immediate control use Microcare. This product offers a fast knockdown and kill of flying insects, giving you immediate relief.

Q
I know you say Talstar is not harmful to dogs after it dries but if it gets wet again does it have to dry?
A
Talstar P is safe if applied and dried prior to the dogs entering the treated surfaces for the initial application. If the treated area gets wet again, it does not reactivate the product so it will be safe.

How often are the soil treatments when using Talstar P (Talstar One) for termite protection?
A
Talstar P (Talstar One) lasts for about 5 years in the ground and works as a repellent, killing only those insects that come into contact with the treated area. If you are looking for a termite treatment that lasts longer, we would recommend Termidor SC. This product lasts for 10 years in the soil. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Dave from Naples florida asked:

Q
Will Talstar kill the geckos?
I don't want to kill the geckos just the Mosquitos will this work?

If the lizards are sprayed directly with the Talstar P it may cause them harm. If they travel over dried deposits of the Talstar P it would be less likely to cause any issues.

Thomas from Port Charlotte,fl asked:

Q
Can I spray talstar or bifenthrin on my pool cage screen to prevent " no see ums" from getting in?
I was told to use permethrin but it doesn't seem to work...my pool is constantly full of them! I'm hoping the oil based bifenthrin is the answer.
A
The active ingredient Bifenthrin is labeled to help control Noseeums. You would want to treat the perimeter of the pool with Talstar P focusing on the bushes, trees, shrubs and ground cover surrounding the pool. Incorporating an Insect Growth Regulator such as Archer IGR will help break down the population because it keeps the insects from being able to reproduce. A great contact kill to use is Microcare Aerosol Spray to use around the entry points to the pool house (doors, eaves, joint areas against screen)

Jason from Tulsa, OK asked:

Q
How does Talstar P compare to the new Suspend Polyzone?
Does Suspend Polyzone have a faster kill rate for spiders. I see in the Q&A that Talstar P takes longer to kill since it is a residual. Can you give some guidance on whether this is true for Suspend Polyzone?
A
The active ingredient in Talstar is not protected like that of the Suspend Polyzone. Talstar will last 30 days outdoors. Suspend Polyzone features a proprietary polymer layer that protects the active ingredient from weather, irrigation and mechanical abrasion. This controlled release formulation, which resists erosion, ensures your treatment will continue to control targeted pests for up to 90 days outdoors. It also stays right where you put it, so if you want to increase the effectiveness of your treatments, put the science of Suspend Polyzone to work for you.
