Talstar for winter moths
I would like to spray my own property to deal with mainly winter moth but also Japanese beetles and aphids. Should a respirator be worn and is full body suit needed? Also, I am looking for suggestion on an affordable pump/sprayer setup. I'm sure the setups to get 80-100 feet up are way too expensive but maybe something to do 40-60 feet up using a 55 gallon drum.
Talstar P (Talstar One) is labeled for moths and beetles. It is not labeled for aphids.
We would recommend using Demand CS. It is labeled for moths, adult Japanese beetles and aphids. This can be sprayed on ornamental plants and across your lawn. Use 1.5 – 5 fl. oz (44-148 mL) / 100 gallons of water – May be applied at 7-day intervals if necessary. Use lower dilution rates for more frequent applications or limit to spot treatment. The addition of a spreader sticker may increase application to waxy foliage. It can also be used indoors as well. You will use 0.4 fl. oz. per gallon of water. You will spray along the baseboards and cracks and crevices.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
