How Talstar Pro (Talstar One) Works
Talstar P is a liquid concentrate insecticide which contains bifenthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid. Pyrethroids work by disrupting an insect's nervous system causing a weakened state followed by death. Talstar P does not provide an instant knockdown of pests, rather, pests pick up the residual active ingredient by contact. Talstar P is a repellent insecticide since it acts quickly enough that social insects such as ants cannot create a pheromone trail. This means that Talstar P will be most effective as a barrier with a thorough application. Talstar P residual can last up to 3 months.
Talstar P (Talstar One) controls over 75 different pests -- everything from stink bugs, bed bugs, spiders, mosquitoes, cockroaches, ticks and fleas to pillbugs, chinch bugs, earwigs, millipedes, Dichondra Flea Beetles, spittlebugs and more. It is very effective on Japanese Beetles, clover mites, ants, termites, spiders, scorpions, roaches, army worms, mealybugs, mites, grasshoppers, pillbugs, cutworms, sod webworms, weevils, leaf miners, box elder bugs, bees, wasps, sowbugs, crickets, and turf and ornamental pests. Please see below for complete list.

Talstar P is an ideal broad-spectrum insecticide for prevention, maintenance, or active infestations of over 75 pests. Talstar P provides a long-lasting barrier around the perimeters of structures for crawling insects such as ants, beetles, and roaches; protects ornamental plants from hazardous pests like mealybugs; helps control nuisance flying insects such as mosquitoes; protects lawns from turf pests such as chinch bugs; and even has an expanded label to include treatment of stink bugs. See below for complete list of approved usage sites.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Bifenthrin - 7.9%
Inside, outside, and around the perimeter of structures, food handling areas, lawns, turf and ornamental trees and shrubs. NOT for use on food and vegetable gardens. Talstar is best applied with a sprayer. Always read the label completely before use.

- 1 quart (32 oz.) concentrate yields 32-96 gallons of finished solution.
- ¾ gallon (96 oz.) concentrate yields 96-192 gallons of finished solution.
- 1 gallon (128 oz.) concentrate yields 128-256 gallons of finished solution or covers 128,000 to 256,000 square feet for broadcast application.
Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Rates:
- 0.33 oz./gallon of water – 0.02% - prevention, low level infestions
- 0.5 oz./gallon of water – 0.031% – general indoor or outdoor use
- 1.0 oz./gallon of water - 0.06% - severe infestations, less frequent treatments, longer residual, quicker knockdown
- 1 gallon of finished solution should cover 1,000 square feet when using a hand pump sprayer.
* See the video above for general use mixing and application instruction using a sprayer like the Chapin premier 1 gallon sprayer.
Use in the Following Areas:
Indoors and outdoors on residential, institutional, public, commercial, and industrial buildings, greenhouses, animal confinement facilities/livestock premises, kennels, food handling establishments, and lawns, ornamentals, parks, recreational areas and athletic fields; trees, shrubs, foliage plants, non-bearing fruit and nut trees, and flowers in greenhouses, interiorscapes, including hotels, shopping malls, office buildings, etc., and outdoor plantscapes, such as around residential dwellings, parks, institutional buildings, recreational areas, athletic fields and home lawns (Non-bearing crops are perennial crops that will not produce a harvestable raw agricultural commodity during the season of application); feed and food handling establishments, animal confinement facilities, kennels, confined animal feeding operations, livestock premises, and in/around/under structures
Use 0.33 to 1 fluid oz. per gallon of water for residual pest control in buildings and structures and on modes of transport. Apply either as a crack and crevice, pinstream, spot, coarse, low pressure spray (25 psi or less) or with a paint brush.
Apply as a coarse, low pressure, crack and crevice or spot spray to areas where pests hide, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas.
- Do not use as a space spray.
- Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices.
- Limit repeat application to no more than once per seven days.
Talstar P may be converted to a foam for residual treatment of voids or as a spot spray when visual marking of application is desired.
Bedbug Control - Thorough application should be made to crack and crevices where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, boxsprings, inside empty dressers and clothes closets and carpet edges, high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use this product on bed linens, pillows, mattresses or clothes. Remove all clothes and other articles from dressers or clothes closets before application. Allow all treated areas to thoroughly dry before use. Not recommended for use as sole protection against bedbugs. If evidence of bedbugs is found in/on mattresses, use products approved for this use.
General application for crawling pests - Mix 0.5 or 1 oz. of Talstar P in one gallon of water and apply to the outside foundation of the home, approx. 3 feet up the side of the house and 2 feet out from the house. Also spray entry points into the home such as around windows, pipes, doorways, etc. For general preventative treatment, apply Talstar P once every 3 months.
- Repeat applications should be limited to no more than once per seven days when using 0.33 oz./gal. of water. For the high use rate of 1.0 oz. per gallon of water, do not apply more than once every four weeks.
Mosquitos - In addition to the treatment around the foundation of the home as mentioned above, spray Talstar P on the underside of leaves on the lower-hanging branches of trees around the backyard or area where mosquitoes are a problem. You can also spray the underside of leaves on shrubs and ornamentals. Do not apply when wind speed exceeds 10 MPH.
Higher application volumes may be used to obtain the desired coverage of dense vegetation or landscaping materials.
Bagworms – Use 0.125 to 0.25 oz. per 1,000 square feet (or 5.4 - 10.8 oz. per 100 gal.). Apply as a full coverage foliar spray. Use of a Chapin Slide Pump Sprayer will help reach higher into trees. Apply when larvae begin to hatch and spray larvae directly. Applications when larvae are young will be most effective.
Chinch bugs – Use 0.5 to 1.0 oz. per 1,000 square feet. Chinch Bugs infest the base of grass plants and are often found in the thatch layer. Irrigation of the grass area before treatment will optimize the penetration of the insecticide to the area where the chinch bugs are located. Use higher volume applications if the thatch layer is excessive or if a relatively long mowing height is being maintained. Chinch Bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the higher application rates (Up to 1 fluid oz. per 1000 square feet) may be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the middle of the summer.
Lawn applications – A hose end sprayer like the Chapin hose end sprayer may be used to apply Talstar P for lawn pests. Use up to 1.0 oz. per 1,000 square feet. Higher volume applications may be more effective with some pests, so you may want to calibrate the sprayer to a lower rate (for example, 0.25 oz/gal.) and use more water to cover a 1,000 square foot area.
Stink Bugs – Talstar P has an expanded label for treatment of Stink Bugs indoors, outdoors, on lawns, and on ornamental plants. Use 0.33 to 1.0 oz/gal. of water and treat around door frames, window frames, vents, eaves, around the bottom of your foundation, and any other crack or crevice where an insect could gain entry, once a month August-November.
Termite Applications- Talstar P may be used for pre-construction or post-construction prevention of subterranean termites. Use 1.0 oz/gal. of water (0.06% solution) for most termite applications. For preconstruction horizontal barriers (such as under a concrete slab), use 1 gallon of solution per 10 square feet. For perimeter barrier treatments, use 4 gallons of solution per 10 linear feet. See our article How to Do a Termite Treatment, for further instructions on perimeter termite treatments. See product label for full instructions on using Talstar P to control subterranean termites.

Works better than Diazinon
By Jay on 09/18/2008
I bought a quart of Talstar One two years ago. It works better than I would've imagined. I spray around the perimeter of house about 2-3 times a year and it keeps any and all pests away. I used Diazinon before but those results pale in comparison to Talstar One. I hope you have this product for a long time to come.

By Linda in Prescott, AZ on 04/30/2010
We live in the high desert of Northern AZ where there are scorpions, millipedes and lots of other nasty insects. Within a matter of weeks after moving into our new house the scorpions started showing up inside the house. We have several dogs and cats and I was concerned for their safety as well as our own. A friend recommended a professional pest control company and things improved dramatically after the first treatment. We signed up for regular treatment which was every 3 months. Unfortunately, it was to their schedule which seemed to constantly change and it became extremely inconvenient for us. They would even want to spray while it was raining. The last time the pest control guy was here my husband asked what they used and the guy was more than willing to tell him that it was Talstar P. After my husband told me the name I Googled it and found DoMyOwnPestControl. We then decided to do our own pest control and not be at the mercy of someone elses schedule. It's very easy, effective and, needless to say, costs a LOT less money - one quart lasted us almost two years and cost about the same as one of the pest control company's visits. More importantly we spray at the optimum time and under the best weather conditions.

Does not break down quickly in sunlight
By William on 07/02/2008
Talstar P is an excellent product because it is so persistent and does not break down. Most phosphor based products break down the moment they are expose to sunlight. This one will not. We have an open ditch behind our property that used to be the home to millions of mosquitoes - not anymore. I spray about 200 ft of the ditch in either direction twice a year, using a total of perhaps 30 oz of Talstar a year, and we have been mosquito free for three years.

Read the directions, spray it yourself & save big!
By Karen in Georgia on 07/23/2009
It seems our entire street lives on an ant hill, because we could not keep those varmints out for long. I was paying $75 per quarter for pest control in our house and outside as well. I read the directions, applied a band around the outside perimeter, windows and doorways of our home and I have not seen one bug, ant, or anything for the past 2 months. We have had rainy and exceptionally dry weather, too. I highly recommend Talstar One.

Best I have ever used!
By Umar on 10/30/2008
Talstar P (talstar one) is the best I have ever used in pest control. I swear by it.
By Donna in Virginia Beach Va on 08/17/2017
I bought this because I was having major issues with spiders in and around my pool. A neighbor recommended Talstar P and I have to say so far I am really impressed. My husband has sprayed with it one time and I have not seen any more spiders or anything else. He only used a small amount of the large jug and it went a long way. I would definitely recommend this product.
By Jaemi in Elko NV on 08/15/2017
We have tried all the different sprays from Wal-Mart and Home Depot. And we kept having problems with spiders and so many ear wigs. We decided to try Talstra P. It has worked amazing. Any bug I have seen outside is dead. And I haven't seen anything inside. We will order again when we run out.
By Justin in Detroit, Michigan on 08/15/2017
Went from mosquito infested to completely gone overnight. Didn't do much for gnats.
Talstar P (Talstar one) Qt. size
By Vernon in West Grove, Pa. on 08/14/2017
Measuring takes sometime to get it right. I messed up pouring it out & may have gotten more than I needed. However, the product exceeded my expectations. My heavily infested evergreens are now clear of the bagworms. They were my main concern. I will now have to read the literature to find what other uses it may have. Lot of product remaining in the one qt. Talstar P (one).

My go to bug killer - Works on most everything, even keeps the spiders down in the Boat house
Great Products and Great Company!
By Caryn in GLENDALE, AZ on 08/13/2017
Due to the greatest rain we have experienced in 15 years in Arizona, we have developed a tick problem. My husband ordered this product on the recommendation of an exterminator friend. It arrived as advertised and quickly. I then called to see if Talstar P contained IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that kills the larvae and eggs to control the population. The woman on the phone was very knowledgeable and friendly and suggested we add a product called Nyguard. We quickly received the Nyguard, added it to the Talstar P sprayer, and my husband treated the areas around the outer perimeter of the house and casita. We will spray again soon. We have seen a remarkable reduction in ticks. Many are dead when we find them. We do have an occasional live tick we find on the floor but they do not attach themselves to our dog. (We have also treated and will continue to treat our dog.) We realize this isn't a quick fix and we will need to continue spraying for awhile due to the much needed rain during the monsoons here. We are very pleased with the products that were recommended and the DoMyOwn company's great knowledge and customer service!
Kills pests dead
By Janet in Moore Haven, FL. on 08/10/2017
Been using for years, safe for pets, don't need to use flea and tick products because we use TalstarP (Talstar One). We have cows behind us and don't have to worry about ticks or fleas on our dog. We spray yard, lanai, garage, house, if a pest does make it inside I find them dead. Great product.
Talstar P and Tekla
By John in San Antonio,TX on 08/10/2017
Bought both products after several years of buying normal hose end sprayer products from big box stores which did very little to control mosquitoes for more than a couple of days. After one application of each product, yard with a great deal of plantings in south Texas is still mosquito as well as fly free. Even though products are a bit pricey, their performance actually makes them more economical. I was spending $7/week for very little control.
By Jimmie in Babson Park on 08/09/2017
For years we have had our home professionally sprayed for bugs (we live in Florida!). This product was easy to use and it works. The few bugs we have seen are moving VERY slowly. I will continue to do it myself in the future.

QWhat is the shelf life of Talstar P? How long does the unused portion of the pesticide retain it's strength and effectiveness after opening?
AThe manufacturer gives Talstar P a shelf life of 3 years as long as you keep the top on the bottle and you do not store it in direct sunlight or in extreme temperatures.

QWhich product is more recommended for termites Talstar P or Termidor SC?
My home was originally treated with Talstar 72 from the builder 5 years ago.
ATermidor SC is the #1 termite product on the market. When used as an in-ground barrier treatment, Termidor SC will protect your home or business for over 10 years. Termidor SC is completely undetectable by termites and once termites touch it they contact, ingest and spread the termiticide until it eliminates the entire colony. Termidor SC controls all types of termites including subterranean, formosan, and drywood termites. Talstar P lasts for about 5 years in the ground and works as a repellent, killing only those insects that come into contact with the treated area.

QDoes Talstar P kill termites?
A Talstar P is labeled to treat for termites and†lasts for about 5 years in the ground and works as a repellent, killing only those insects that come into contact with the treated area. A better option for subterranean termites non repellent termiticide such as Termidor SC†or Dominion 2L. Termidor will last†up to to 10 years in the soil and Dominion 2L will last 5-7 years. Non repellents work slower but much more effectively when treating a termite colony as they are able to be transferred thorought the entire colony therefore eventually elimating the colony. Talstar P will only repel the termites, not kill the entire colony.†

QHow exactly does Talstar P work?
Do bugs eat it this product after it dries up or they walk over it and die?
A Talstar P is a liquid concentrate insectide which contains bifenthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid. Pyrethroids works by disrupting an insect's nervous system causing a weakend state followed by death. Talstar P does not provide an instant knockdown of pests, rather, pests pick up the residual active ingredient by contact, Talstar P is a repellent insecticide since it acts quickly enough that social insects such as ants cannot create a pheromone trail. This mean that Talstar P will be most effective as a barrier with a thorough application. Talstar P residual last up to 3 months.†

QCan Talstar P kill fruit flies?
A Unfortunately, Talstar P is not labeled to treat for fruit flies. Getting rid of fruit flies doesn't have to be diffucult. The most important step is to be sure that you discard or refrigerate any ripe produce as insects are naturally drawn to overripe, rotting, and spoled produce. Regularly rinse out and clean gargabe cans and recycling bins. Most times doing these small little things will take care of the problem. However, should you need to use a product to help you get rid of them one of the best ways to kill fruit flies is to use a fuit fly trap like the Vector 960 Furit Fly Trap. These have attractants in them that attract the fruit flies to them, and once they are inside they cannot get out.

The most important step is to be sure that you discard or refrigerate any ripe produce as insects are naturally drawn to overripe, rotting, and spoled produce. Regularly rinse out and clean gargabe cans and recycling bins. Most times doing these small little things will take care of the problem. However, should you need to use a product to help you get rid of them one of the best ways to kill fruit flies is to use a fuit fly trap like the Vector 960 Furit Fly Trap. These have attractants in them that attract the fruit flies to them, and once they are inside they cannot get out.
