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.

Q
Wasps in fascia of my home. Sprays don't work, should I fumigate attic? what product?
A
If you know where the nests are you can apply Tempo 1% dust. We recommned that you use a hand duster and apply a dust such as Tempo dust to the holes where the wasps are going in and out. The dust will help eliminate the wasps in the nest and any other wasps returning to the nest. Tempo dust will stay effective for several months as long as it is dry. We are not aware of a product that would eliminate the wasp pheromone to help stop wasps from returning to a particular area.  After dusting in the void where the wasps have a built a nest you can try spraying the siding with a product such as Talstar P. You can spray once a month and any wasp that lands on treated areas will be eliminated within about 24 hours which should stop new wasps from being able to build a nest.

Do I have to keep the dog off the grass after a rain?
A
Yes. Talstar P can be safely used around pets as long as you follow the label instructions; all pets need to be out of the area while application is being made and they can return as soon as the application is dry. As long as the area has had time to dry before a rain it will not "reactivate".

Q
How do I get rid of the cloudy window effect yet maintain coverage for stink bugs?
I live in NY and sprayed around all the windows including the screens & doors. I had the pump sprayer set on mist yet now all the windows have dried looking cloudy and are no longer nice and clear. I used the recommended 1 ounce to 1 gallon. How can I get the windows clean again without losing the protection against the coming stink bug attack in the fall? Please advise & thank you in advance.
A
We recommend that you only spray around the edges of the window frame to avoid wasting the product. Stink bugs will come in around the edges of the window so it is not effective in the middle of the window. The windows can be cleaned. The correct amount is Talstar P (Talstar One) is 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Q
What is the best way to control adult bagworm infestation?
I'd like to treat with spray and then systemically.
A
Talstar P is the #1 recommended product for bagworm control. TalstarP is known to have a very low toxicity for mammals making it safe to use around people and pets. Please visit the Talstar P product page where you can review the product label as well as the MSDS. Talstar P applications should start in April and continue monthly through June for bagworm control. Be sure foliage is sprayed thorughly to the point of runoff to achieve adequate coverage.

The only systemic insecticide that we are aware of that is labeled for bagworms is Bonide Systemic Insect Control with Acephate but it is only labeled for use on shade trees and you must spray all of the foliage to get the desired results.Below you will see what we usually recommend for bagworm control.


Bagworm recommendations:

It is important to start control methods before a major infestation occurs. Once the bagworms have matured and have formed the "bag" most chemical control methods will no longer work.

You can manually control bagworms by simply plucking them off of the infested trees and dropping them into a bucket of soapy water or squishing them.  This control method is most useful during fall, winter and early spring, before the eggs inside the bag have hatched.

Chemical control may be achieved when the larvae are small and just emerging from the over-wintering bag.  Use a concentrated liquid insecticide such as Talstar or Tempo. Foliage should be thoroughly wetted with the insecticide spray in order to achieve thorough coverage.  When doing an insecticide treatment, timing is key. To find out the correct time of year to treat for bagworms in your region contact you local Cooperative Extension office. These offices can prove to be invaluable when treating for insect pests.

Q
My apple tree has a carpenter ant nest.
If Talstar P should not be used on fruit trees, what is safe to use and eliminate the carpenter ants? If Talstar P is used to kill the carpenter ants on the fruit tree, is the fruit safe to eat after one year from using Talstar P.?
A
Talstar P (Talstar One) cannot be used on an apple tree. We would recommend using the Carpenter Ant Kit # 1. It has a granular and a sugar bait. This can be placed in areas around the tree. The ants will take food back to the colony and eradicate it.

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.
