Q
Is Talstar P dangerous to bug eating critters?
does Talstar P pose any dangers to insect eating critters like frogs, toads, bats, birds etc. I want to treat my yard and wooded portion of our property mainly for mosquito control. I realize that other bugs will be killed but would dangers are there for critters that consume affected insects?
A
After mixing Talstar P (Talstar One) there is only enough active ingredient to harm small insects. With that said, if you are killing the critters' prey, then they may leave the area.

Q
Is there any benefit to mixing Talstar one with Essentria IC3
I like the smell of the IC3 eccentra . I also think it works very well just doesn't last long
A
You would not want to mix IC3 with Talstar. IC3 could make Talstar have a repellency to it that you do not want. You want the insect to travel through the treated areas and kill them.

Q
Can you compare Talstar P to Essentria IC3? Does it kill carpenter ants and mosquitoes? Similar pricing?
A
Talstar P is a water based synthetic pyrethroid and Essentria IC3 is a natural product made up of botanical oils. They contain different active ingredients. They are listed for some of the same insects including ants and mosquitoes. They both have the same length of residual after applied. Essentria IC3 can be applied near water areas without harming aquatic life and Talstar P should NOT be applied to those areas. Talstar is offered in a pint, quart, 3/4 gallon and gallon concentrated bottles and diluted at an ounce per gallon of water. Essentria IC3 is available in a quart and gallon size and you will mix 1-10 oz per gallon of water depending on the insect targeted.

Q
Can Talstar P be used with an IGR?
Wooded 5 acre lawn surrounded by cattle ranch. Ticks and fleas major issue. Have both dogs and cats who roam - ie bring the beasties home. Animals treated heavily, what to do for yard? need good residual and rain resistance.
A
Talstar P can be applied with an IGR (insect growth regulator). It is safe for pets as long as they remain out of the area during treatment and return only when the surfaces have dried completely. It should not be applied where there are grazing animals such as cattle. It is labeled for ticks and fleas outside and offers a 30 day outdoor residual.
For best results, allow 24 hours after outdoor application before expected rainfall.

05/26/2015Roger from brooklyn ct asked:

Q
Where in Rhode Island can buy Talstar P? Does it work on web worm and what month of the year is the best time of to apply and what time of day?
A
Talstar P can be applied to the lawn once a month for treating sod webworms. We are not aware of any local stores in your state that carry the product as it is a professional strength product sold online by retail distributors such as ours. We also offer free shipping.
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.

Q
Does Talstar kill spider mites and can it be sprayed after oil or sulfur has been sprayed?
Is Talstar ok to use plants have been sprayed with horticultural oil or sulfur?
A
We would recommend doing the application of Talstar P before doing an application of horticultural oil or sulfur. This will provide the residual for the pests, and the other products will help with killing them as well. Spraying Talstar P over either one of these will likely decrease the effectiveness of the oil and/or sulfur.

Q
When using a mist blower, how far into a treeline should we treat for mosquitos?
Our back yard (1/4 acre) is surrounded by dense woods with substantial underbrush on three sides and we're wondering how far into the woods we'd need to blow a misting pesticide like Telstar P into the cover to provide defense against biting black flies and mosquitos. Of course, this would be done in conjunction to the spraying of shrubs and patio areas in the main part of the yard. Additionally, where we don't spend nearly as much time in the front yard (1/4 acre, open to a street) as the back, is it worth spraying the shrubs and trees in that area as vigorously as the backyard?
A
There is no definite "coverage area" for mosquitoes because they are flying insects. However, keep in mind that the better the coverage, the better the results. For best results we would recommend treating as far back into the woods as possible and also ask neighbors about the possibility of treating their property. The larger the treated zone the more impact on the mosquito population. You want to treat all bushes, shrubs, and low lying tree branches and be sure to get the undersides of the leaves which is where those pesky mosquitoes like to hide during the day.

Q
Can I sleep in my home after I've sprayed Talstar P?
I found termites in my home tonight and need to spray Talstar. Can I sleep in my home after I've sprayed it? Or do I need to let it air out over night?
A
Talstar P can be applied for above ground termites but will take a couple of hours to dry and you should leave the home after treatment until the surfaces are dry. You can sleep in the home afterwards. Talstar will not be an instant kill. Please contact us for information on termite treatments at 866-581-7378 M-F 9-5PM EST. Any household cleaning product will kill the ones that you see right now without you having to worry or leave the home this late at night.

Q
Pest Control-Products Outside of House
I want to put some pest control outside around the house, in the brick crevices etc... An exterminator company came to the house last week offering a sale of $120 every 2 months to preventative control, for spiders, mice, whatever other bugs are outside. I just built my house which is outside of town in a subdivision, but across the street we have open, fields etc... I have purchased from this website before, and I figured I would give it a shot at doing it myself before paying those rates. What product would you recommend?
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. Talstar is also available in a granule formula called Talstar PL if you prefer to use granules.

05/12/2015Jim from United States asked:

Q
Can I mix Talstar P with Image in a single application?
A
Talstar P can be mixed with Image, if you do the tank mix test.  Any tank mixture which has not been previously tested should be prepared on a small scale (pint or quart jar), using the proper proportions of pesticides and water to ensure the physical compatibility of the mixture. The following procedure is recommended for preparation of a new tank mix, unless specified otherwise in label directions: (1) Add wettable powders to tank water, (2) Agitate, (3) Add liquids and flowables, (4) Agitate, (5) Add emulsifiable concentrates, and (6) Agitate. If a mixture is found to be incompatible following this the volume of water. Note: If the tank-mixture is found to be compatible after increasing the amount of water, then the sprayer will need to be recalibrated for a higher volume application. Do not allow the mixture to stand over night.

Q
Will Talstar P kill water bugs?
A
Talstar P will kill water bugs, roaches, and most common crawling and flying insects that come into contact with the direct spray or the residual, however you should use additional methods of control for roaches, such as eliminating food and water sources and exclusion. See our Roach Control Guide for more information about how to Prevent and Treat these insects.
