Talstar PL Granules

Talstar Granules (Talstar PL), with its unique sand core granular structure, provides long-term protection against insect pests in lawn, gardens and landscaped areas for two to four months. Talstar Granules penetrate deep into mulch and grass to kill pests where they breed and hide. Simply spread the granules over your lawn and water in according to the label directions. (Talstar PL is like a sand, and therefore can penetrate deep. PL stands for perimeter and lawn).




Active Ingredient: Bifenthrin - 0.20%

DESCRIPTION:

Talstar Granules (Talstar PL) are used to control Ants (including Imported Fire Ants), spiders, fleas, ticks, worms, crickets, and almost all other insect pests on lawns, in landscaped areas and gardens, and perimeters of residential, institutional, public, commercial and industrial buildings, parks, recreational areas and athletic fields. Talstar granules release chemical over time as it rains. One application of Talstar granules can protect your lawn areas for 2 to 3 months. It is safe against non-target animals such as birds, pets, and other mammals.

USE:

Talstar granules is generally used in two ways: It can be applied as a perimeter barrier directed in a five to ten foot band around your home, or it can be generally broadcast over your entire yard including landscaped areas. A normal application usually consists of three to five pounds of product. We recommend applying Talstar PL granules with an Earthway spreader. One 25lb. bag covers 5,000-10,000 square feet. Always read the label.

To ensure optimum control, treat the building perimeter at dusk to prevent outdoor scorpions from entering the building. Scorpions reside hidden in cracks and voids during the day and are active at night at temperatures above 77ºF/25ºC. Resting areas can be identified at night using a blacklight (UV bulb) as scorpions will fluoresce. These areas should also be treated. Prior to treatment, to increase treatment efficacy, remove trash, debris, or firewood that scorpions may use as resting sites.

    5 of 5 stars  Talstar Granules with Ants & Cinch bugs
    By William in Sebastian, FL on 09/21/2010

    A great product to be used in Florida. There is not an ant or cinch bug present in my yard after the treatment. Comparable services from companies like Chem Lawn will cost you up to $120.00 for a product like this. The granules were easy to spread and the smallest package available from this website covered about 1/4 acre lot. I was impressed with product and service.

    By Manuel in Prairieville, La. on 05/04/2010

    I always had problems with ants but could not get rid of them. I was told about Talstar PL from a professional who had great success with the product. I purchased a 25lb bag and spread it as instructed, the next day I went and checked on the ant piles and low and behold the ants were at the top of the mound DEAD. I haven't had any ant piles or ants in my yard for 7 months. I just bought my second bag, I figure with all the rain here in South Louisiana it was time to retreat. GREAT Stuff.

    5 of 5 stars  Talstar
    By Ethan in Nottingham Pa on 05/23/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I applied the Talstar PL Granules @ 2-3 weeks ago. The ants appeared to have been killed. I am cautious to say this as I am waiting for the real hot summer weather as this is when they become very active. Never the less I have 50 lbs left over so I can apply when I need it. I hope that the ants have left me as I have a very large infestation in my lower yard. Thank you and I will be contacting you soon when I need more Talstar. I have not had to use the liquid yet.  P.S The ordering and the service from you was fantastic. I received my items @ 3 days from when I ordered. The free freight sure is a big bonus!!!

    By Jeff in Easton, MD on 08/22/2017

    I had a problem with ants coming in (from somewhere) into my townhouse. Sprinkled this around the perimeter of the entire house, sprayed water around the areas, and haven't experienced a single ant in the household since. This is the NUCLEAR option for getting rid of ants. They don't make granular Diazinon any longer - I researched and learned this stuff is the best replacement/substitute.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Does what pest control companies won't
    By Frank in Spring Branch Tx on 08/22/2017

    Scorpions have always been a major pest in the hill country of Texas second only the big buck pest control companies that are only interested in acquiring contracts and waste your time if they have to re-apply. After watching them pretend to use enough granules around my house I gave this stuff a try with a 7 dollar handheld spreader and no bugs period for a month so far and $100 in savings in my pocket. One bag should last me about 2 years and save at least $500 and all the time it takes waiting for the pretenders to arrive.

  • 5 of 5 stars  This Stuff is AMAZING!!!!!
    By Charles in Summerville, SC on 08/05/2017

    Okay, let me start off by saying I had an issue dealing with ants in the house. Start with a few scouts, then it became an everyday problem. So I went to local home improvement stores trying to find solutions but not of those worked. Took a chance on buying this since I hear rumors online. Tested this out on one standing ant nest in the yard and within 30 mins. to an hour, I had ants stumbling out of their nest. At that point, this may actually work. Fast forward 3 weeks later, I haven't seen one ant in my house nor yard. Not even in the driveway. All of the ant nests that were forming in the backyard have cease to exists. Living witness, this stuff destroys ants!!!

QCan I use Talstar Granules for Chinch bug control on St. Augustine grass?
I have a cinch bug problem that has crippled my beautiful st. augustine lawn. We were about to resod, then I saw this. Will it work and if so will the grass grow back?

A

Talstar granules are one of the most effective chinch bug treatments on the market. Chinch bugs infest the base of grass plants and are often found in the thatch layer. Irrigate the treated area with up to 0.25 inches of water immediately after application to activate (release from the granule) the insecticide. Chinch bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the higher applications rates will be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the summer. It may also be necessary to remove the thatch layer if it exceeds 1 inch in thickness to allow the Talstar to penetrate down to the soil.

If you have a few small spots the St. Augustine runners might fill it in this season (of course water, fertilizer, and lots of sunshine helps). If large portions of the lawn were damaged it will likely be late spring or later of next year before the lawn recovers. Very heavily damaged areas may need to be resodded.

QIs Talstar Granules safe to use in the yard around my dog?
I have a dog that is always eating something he shouldn't be. The pest service I use wants to apply the Talstar granules in my yard. I'm concerned about letting my dog around any chemicals for fear of him possibly ingesting it. What should I do?

AIf the Talstar PL Granules product label is followed, then the granules will not be available for your dog to ingest. Usually, the granules are applied to the lawn and then immediately watered in, sending the insecticide into the soil and thatch layer. Your dog should be removed from the yard prior to the application and should not return until the application is dry. And don't forget, you can save money by purchasing the Talstar PL Granules and applying them yourself and you can have piece of mind knowing that the product label was followed.

QWhen using Talstar PL Granules for Scorpions, is watering needed?
I'm considering bifenthrin granules to complement spraying, which has had poor residual performance so far. The granules would be spread widely and hard to water-in. Watering appears to (1) help activate the chemical and (2) drive it into the soil. I don't need the latter, and if my concern is residual performance, might it not be better to let the stuff sit and gradually activate from ambient moisture? If they will... the label says water-in for most bugs, but oddly not for scorpions.

A

Yes regardless of what insect you're treating for, Talstar PL needs to be watered-in in order to activate the active ingredient. Granules can typically last 2-3 months whereas liquids like Talstar P? will last about 30 days maybe more on outside surfaces.  For scorpions specifically you would want to go with the Cy-Kick CS? that will sit on top of the surface better than granules and being microencapsulated will last on outside surfaces closer to 60 days.  The Talstar PL granules would be great to use for the insects the scorpions feed on though.

QIf I put Talstar PL Granules over mulch, will it give me the same result?

A

If you apply Talstar PL Granules over mulch it can work for pests that crawl over those areas. For a more effective treatment though, we would recommend moving the mulch and applying the granules in that area, that way pests that like moisture and usually hide under mulch like centipedes, millipedes, silverfish, etc. can come in contact with the residual.

QWill Talstar PL Granules kill my scorpion problem?
I have scorpions and was told by a farmer to try Talstar PL granules. The scorpions are all around the perimeter of my home and they get inside the house. I dread the spring and summer thanks to these little house mates.

A

Talstar PL Granules can be used for scorpions following the instructions on the product label:  To ensure optimum control, treat the building perimeter at dusk to prevent outdoor scorpions from entering the building. Scorpions reside hidden in cracks and voids during the day and are active at night at temperatures above 77ºF/25ºC. Resting areas can be identified at night using a blacklight (UV bulb) as scorpions will fluoresce. These areas should also be treated. Prior to treatment, to increase treatment efficacy, remove trash, debris, or firewood that scorpions may use as resting sites

We also have a great guide here for Scorpion Control with non chemical recommendations.

QHow long after treating the garden with Talstar PL Granules can you plant your vegetable plants?
My raised bed gardens have had ants and I treated them with Talstar granules. How long do I need to wait before planting the garden?

A

When using Talstar PL Granules, they would have at least a three month residual in the soil. Some vegetables require a longer re-planting waiting period. We suggest you contact the product manufacturer to see what your specific application would require as far as the waiting period. You can reach FMC at 800-321-1362.

QHow far away from a citrus tree can Talstar PL be spread safely?
I am trying to control an infestation of white -footed ants and Talstar seems to be the only effective treatment but I have an orange tree in my backyard and I don't want to apply it if it's not safe. Also should I use Talstar PL or Talstar Extra?

A

Talstar PL granules should not be used on or within the dripline or root zone of edible vegetation.  Either the PL or the Talstar XTRA could be used, XTRA would just provide a faster kill to the ones that contact a treated area.

QAre Talstar PL granules toxic to reptiles?
We have a healthy population of box turtles, lizards, and frogs that inhabit our yard.

QWill the Talstar PL Granules kill Crayfish?
My yard is full of Crayfish mounds. They are really bad when it rains.

A

Crayfish are a vital food for both fish and animals. Unfortunately, the Talstar PL Granules is not labeled for Crayfish.  We suggest you use a repellent, and/or crayfish traps. The Tomahawk double door crayfish live trap - Model 405 is  designed specifically for trapping crayfish. If you have a large amount of burrows which are causing damage, use Martins Surrender Fire Ant Killer.  Though the labeling lists just "ants," Acephate is active on many lawn and garden pests when used as the label allows. So sprinkling some over ant mounds, mole cricket nests, digger wasp holes, cicada killer tunnels and basically any pest found in the yard or garden will provide positive results. It will even get rid of stubborn crayfish too. You can apply 2 teaspoons per mound; each jar will cover around 48 mounds.Continue to watch them carefully and take appropriate action as needed to insure a healthy balance of wildlife in and around your pond, lake or stream.

QHow can I use Talstar PL Granules for termite control in my flower beds?
How much product should be put down in flower beds to kill the termites in my mulch?

A

The Talstar PL Granules are not labeled specifically for the control over termites so outside of using the Talstar at its normal application rates per 1000 sq/ft and watering it in, we cannot advise on that specific use. Talstar P in the liquid form however is labeled for controlling Termites and you can use it at the 0.06% solution on the label to drench the soil with.
