Arnold from Greensboro, NC asked:

Q
What is the best product to use around my home for general pest control?
I had a professional pest control company that I no longer use. They only used an outside barrier spray, but never had insects, except maybe a few ants. I just recently have seen some very small bugs in my house on occasion. Do you have a good barrier bug control. I am a regular customer of you folks. Thank you!
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.

nathan from north carolina asked:

Q
Can you use Talstar p with a ulv fogger?
Im looking for something I can use to treat my yard for Mosquitoes, but more importantly I want to treat my crawlspace for everything. I was hoping to use my ulv fogger what do you think?
A
The particle size in Talstar is too large to use in ULV fogger and could clog it. We would recommend when indoor fogging using Riptide. Riptide Waterbased Pyrethrin ULV is new technology that delivers effective control of a wide range of insects including mosquitoes, stored product pests, cockroaches, biting insects, crawling insects, flies and more without oil residues or oil-related issues.

Adam from United States asked:

Q
I am buying my first power sprayer to start doing pest control for my neighbors.
Do you use the same pesticides in the 50-gallon tank as you do for the normal hand sprayer?
A
Normally, yes, you would use the same products in both the pump sprayer and 50 gal tank. Be sure to review the product label, as sometimes there are different mixing ratios for 50 gal tank sprayers

Marie from Margate, FL asked:

Q
Can Talstar P be used on rugs both in a home and vehicle is there a strong odor?
I live in south Florida next to a canal and we seem to have a huge no see um issue. Although, we have no standing water. We are getting bit by something we cannot see. Continuous use of repellents is not a option.
A
Talstar P is odorless but cannot be applied as an indoor broadcast application. It is labeled only as a crack and crevice application per the product label. We recommend that you vacuum daily, use a steamer and apply BioDefense in the home and the vehicle. BioDefense has a lemongrass scent that will eventually dissapate.

Nathan asked:

Q
Is Bifenthrin (Talstar) or a different product better suited for rodent/bird mites?
After a month of getting mysterious bites on our bodies, we found mites in the bathroom. Not a huge infestation but 8-10 here and there. An entomologist identified the mite as most likely rodent/bird mites. We have yet to find the source of the mites as no nests or burrows have been found by us or an exterminator. He suggested using bifenthrin and diatomaceous earth to control the problem. I have yet to use bifenthrin. I sealed up the cracks and gaps in the bathroom as best I could and laid down diatomaceous earth around the toilet. I saw fewer mites after this but they continue to appear especially on the toilet. Should I go ahead and try bifenthrin or is there another product better suited for this siutation?
A
Talstar is one of the best insecticdes for mite control. The product label recommends using 1 oz of Talstar per gallon of water and spray around baseboards, window frames, exhaust vent, toilet, and under the sink (around piping). It will also be benficial to spray along baseboards, window frames, door frames, thresholds, back behind and underneath appliances. Also, performing a perimeter treatment on the outside of your home is recommended. Spray the foundation of your home about 2-3 feet up the side of the structure and come out 2-3 feet on the ground. Be sure to spray the exterior of window frames, door frames, and where piping enters your home.

tolesdaivd from aliceville al asked:

Q
Mud Daubers
How does this product fare against mud daubers? i dont see them listed on the insect label. i'm looking for something that has a residual killing effect for mud daubers and all types of wasps and bees
A
Talstar P will kill mud daubers that come into contact with treated areas for a sufficient amount of time to receive a lethal dose. You will need to dilute 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon of water and broadcast spray over the areas where you have noticed activity. Most folks notice only very limited results from broadcast sprays of insecticides for cicada killers because they don't land and walk around for a long enough time before entering their underground burrow. For a more direct treatment, you can use Delta dust in each individual burrow. You may also want to consider our Wasp and Hornet Control Products.

Garrett from Gonzales, LA asked:

Q
What are some of the best products for general pest control?
I am wanting to do my own pest control and get rid of my pest company. I want to make sure that I am using a good product to ensure quality results. After looking over my past few treatments from my pest control company, they use a different product each time they come. Thanks for your time!
A
The best general pest control can depend on what region you are located in. One of the all time favorite general pest control products is Talstar P. Talstar has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it. Plus, Talstar One is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.

Kris from Eugene or asked:

Q
Can you apply Talstar with high pressure sodium grow lights on?
Or like some miticides, should the lights be off? And do you need to mix with purified water or can tap water be good enough? Using for broad mites and spider mites.
A
We are not aware of any lighting restrictions that should be followed while applying Talstar P.  This product is not specificially a miticide but more of a general pest control product label to treat specific types of mites.  You could contact the manufacturer directly to confirm any lighting issues, FMC can be reached at 800-321-1362.  There is no special requirements on the type of water you use, tap water will be fine.

Kris from Eugene, Or asked:

Q
Can Talstar P kill broad mites and spider mites on indoor plants?
We tested it on one plant at 7 mills per gal and added 1/2 teas. surfactant and it seemed to work. But the pamphlet that came with it doesn't really say how to do what need it to. So any advice would be great. Thanks
A
Yes, Talstar P will kill spider mites and broad mites. You should mix 0.5 fluid once per gallon of water and spray household plants paying close attention to the underside of the leaves. Spray thoroughly but do not allow run off to occur.
