Christopher from somerset, texas asked:

Q
Bug poison for yards.
I am looking for a granular ant/roach/arachnid poison that is dog safe. I am probably asking for to much.
A
Our most popular general use product is called Talstar P, which would be a better product for trying to control spiders and the prey they feed on.  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.  Children and pets should be out of the area while you are applying the product until it dries.  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.

Julie from Douglassville PA asked:

Q
I have a question about using two different pest control items around the same time.
I like the treat the outside of my home every three months with Termidor for ant prevention. Recently, we have been inundated with stink bugs and I would like to treat the outside of the home with Talstar Pro (because of the good reviews it has with stinkbug control). Since it is recommended that Talstar be used monthly for stink bugs, there would be months where I am using both the Talstar and the Termidor. Is this ok---do they affect each other's ability to kill bugs?
A

Termidor SC is a non-repellent insecticide. This means that ants and other insects cannot tell that it is there and they will readily walk over treated areas. Termidor SC also has a delayed reaction time and a transfer effect which allows the ants time to get back to the colony and spread it around before they succumb to the effects of the product. Talstar P on the other hand is synthetic pyrethroid which many sensitive insects such as ants can detect. Ants may avoid the areas treated with Talstar and those ants that do cross over treated areas are the only ones that will be killed by the product. Talstar P does not have a transfer effect so it will not be transferred back to the colony. While the Termidor SC will not actually be deactivated by Talstar P, it will be much less effective if it is over-sprayed with Talstar P. 

You can spray the Talstar P higher up around window frames, window sills, door frames,  any cracks and crevices around foundation or where caulking around windows and doors has opened up, around vents leading inside, and around lights (these bugs are attracted to the light from windows, doors, etc).

Larry from lovettsville,va asked:

Q
Will Talstar harm auto paint?
A
Talstar is a waterbased product and will not usually harm any surface that would not be harmed by water alone. Having said that, Talstar has not been tested on auto paint as it is not labeled for this type of application.

Jeff from Potomac, MD asked:

Q
Something growing in my Talstar P
I have a 3/4 gal bottle of Talstar P. It is one year old. I have used it in my 2 homes and it is very effective. But today, I went to use it and noticed some dark green or grey black splotches in the measuring area of the bottle. There was only residual product in that part. I measured out the amount I needed and when I poured it out, it was somewhat clumpy. Which indicates a fungus growing in there. Just want to know your thoughts. I keep the bottle in my basement in a cabinet, so there is no light hitting the bottle. Thanks!
A

We apologize that there appears to be fungus like substance in your bottle of Talstar P. There was an issue with one Lot of 3/4 gallon Talstar from FMC last year. We would be more than happy to ship you a new bottle or refund you for this bottle from the defective Lot. You can call us at 866-581-7378 to follow up of this matter up.

scott from Farmington, Il asked:

Q
Do the chemicals have an expiration date?
do the chemicals lose strength after awhile. I have some Talstar and Demand and was wondering if I need to purchase new due to having these bottles for about 4 yrs.
A
When stored in ideal conditions - out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight - most insecticides, Talstar and Demand included - will last for 5 years on the shelf. If yours have been properly stored, you do have some life left in your bottles!

Jamie from lower merion, pa asked:

Q
Can Talstar be stored in a large water tank for commercial use or will it need to mixed before each use?
A
Talstar P is to be mixed and sprayed when needed. You do not want to store the mixed solution longer than 24 hours. The product will lose its efficacy and it could damage your application equipment. Please discard any remaining product left unused and rinse the sprayer, nozzle and wand.

Jay from philadelphia, pa asked:

Q
Can Talstar P be applied using a pressure washing system rather than a misting backpack sprayer?
A
We recommend using the 1 fl oz of Talstar P per gallon of water ratio for the fastest knockdown and the longest lasting residual. As for using it in the pressure washer, we really cannot give any advice on that type of application as most insecticide (if not all) are not labeled for use in pressure washer.

Pat from Douglasville, GA (House is in Forest Park, GA) asked:

Q
I purchased Talstar P for house with fleas, and it did not get rid of them.
I sprayed my rental property with Talstar P for fleas, and it did nothing to get rid of them. I sprayed inside and outside the house. I purchased this product because it was rated as very good for fleas, roaches, and other types of pests. Any suggestions? At this time, the house is empty. My tenant moved out 1st of September, and before I can offer it for rent again, I have to get rid of the fleas.
A
You should first note that Talstar P should not be used indoors for flea control because it is not labeled for broadcast applications indoors. For indoor use we usually recommend a product such as Ultracide. Ultracide contains an insecticide to knockdown the jumping, biting adults and an insect growth regulator to stop the growth pattern and sexual development of the immature flea larva.
It is our recommendation and industry standard that you vacuum immediately before the application of Ultracide and every day or every other day after the application for the next two weeks. Vacuums can physically remove a decent percentage of flea eggs that are in the carpet, along with much of the organic crud that the flea larvae feed on. A critical part of the diet of the larva is dried blood, present there as fecal material from the fleas that are on the pets. Wherever the pets spend time they will shed the fecal matter and the eggs, so it is extremely important that you focus on these potential hot spots where the pets sleep. A vacuum also will remove a small percentage of larvae, but the larva is pretty tenacious, and will wrap around the carpet fibers down there at the base of the pile, and hold on for dear life as the vacuum passes by. The pupa is even tougher to physically remove, for it uses fibers as part of its "cocoon". But, the vacuum will stimulate the flea adults still in their pupa form to quickly emerge as the adult, and at this point perhaps be sucked up in the vacuum. Even if they are not removed by the vacuum, at least they now are exposed and susceptible to your treatment. After two weeks most infestations require that you do a second application of the Ultracide and continue with the vacuuming.

Linda from Monroe, Louisiana asked:

Q
Will it spiders? Is it safe to spray a pier at the lake?Will it harm fish if it gets in the lake?
A
Talstar will kill spiders and other insects that they feed on, however it can not be sprayed around piers or bodies of water that fish inhabit. Instead we recommend Talstar's all natural equivalent that is highly used around piers, docks and water areas for spider control. It's a concentrate called Essentria IC3 and can be used for a variety of pests.

Sue from Warren, MI asked:

Q
Talstar One and Bifen IT are supposed to kill Fungus Gnat larve, but the label says 'adult gnat.'
What can I use to KILL the larve?
A
The Talstar and Bifen will only kill the adults as the larvae is protected in its egg form much like a chicken egg is protected until cracked. To control the larvae you would need to mix the NyGuard IGR(birth control) in with the Bifen or Talstar. NyGuard is labled for fungus gnats as well as a large variety of other insects to sterilize the adults from being able to lay viable larvae. This will control the population drastically in keeping new ones from developing. You should mix 1 ounce of Talstar/Bifen with 4 ml of NyGuard IGR to each gallon of water you use.

Charles from social circle ga. asked:

Q
What to use on armyworms
high up in trees
A
Talstar P is a popular choice for tent caterpillars aka army worms.  Directly spray the plant foliage and nest. The larvae are usually easy to contact if spraying is done in late morning when the larvae congregate on the tent surface to warm in the sun. Mechanical control is also helpful with this pest. The egg masses are easy to spot after the leaves have dropped in the fall. Simply clip off and crush or drop into a bucket of soapy water.

Tyler from Appling, GA asked:

Q
Do you have anything that works on Argentina ants?
A
We have many products that will work great on Argentine ants. We normally recommend if they are coming inside your home to use our Complete Ant Kit. This provides both a protein(granular) and sugar(gel) bait for the ants to find when foraging that they take back and feed to the colony to eliminate it at the source. Once they are no longer in the home and the colony is all gone, you can use the Talstar as a general barrier and lawn spray to keep any new ones from congregating or coming in the home. If you do not currently have them in your home and just outdoors, you can use the Talstar to keep them from coming in and any area you spray that an ant comes into contact with will kill them. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
