Is Talstar insecticide harmful to Vegetable Gardens & dogs?
Talstar is not labeled to be used on vegetables or anything edible. Most pest control products are not labeled for this use. Talstar is safe for use around pets when used according to the label. You should always keep children and pets away from the area while you are treating, and then once the treatment is dry it is perfectly safe to allow pets to re-enter the area. We do have a product called Malathion 57% which is labeled to apply to vegetable gardens.
