Talstar P (Talstar One)

Talstar P (also known as Talstar, Talstar One or Talstar Professional) Multi-Insecticide with bifenthrin is one of the most trusted and widely-used insecticides by pest control professionals today, and now available to you for DIY pest control.

The name Talstar P/Talstar One means one professional solution for everything: Talstar insecticide kills over 75 insect pests and can be used for indoor pest control, outdoor pest control, food handling areas, turf and ornamental treatments, in the yard as a yard spray to treat fleas or other yard pests, and even for termite control!

Talstar has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it. Plus, Talstar One is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall. For termites, ants, mosquitoes, roaches, beetles, spiders, and everything in-between, Talstar insecticide is simply fantastic. 1 Qt. concentrate yields 32-96 finished gallons. Application of Talstar P requires a sprayer.

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.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Bifenthrin 7.9%

Talstar P (Talstar One) Application Instructions

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!

Yield-

1 pint (16 oz.) concentrate yields 16-32 gallons of finished solution.

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 for Talstar P:

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.

Talstar P is for 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

Indoors-

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.

For 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.

Outdoors-

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.

  • Store out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.

    5 of 5 Stars  Works better than Diazinon
    By Jay on September 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.

    5 of 5 Stars  Does not break down quickly in sunlight
    By William on July 2, 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.

    5 of 5 Stars  Great Stuff
    By Linda on April 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.

    5 of 5 Stars  Read the directions, spray it yourself & save big!
    By Karen on July 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.

    My regular exterminator recommended this product to me for fire ants. The exterminator can only treat out so far from the house and I have 3.5 acres. I used this Telstar P once and it did the job of getting rid of the fire ant mounds visible as it has since gotten cold. I'll get 'em this Spring.

  • 4 of 5 Stars  So Far So Good
    By Doug on November 12, 2014

    It has only been 3 weeks since the initial application, so I will have a better feel for the ability of Talstar to perform over time in the next few months. The weather is cooling here in Nevada and general bug conditions are not as obvious as during the summer months. I would say that the product is very easy to measure, apply and is completely odorless. I noticed a larger number of expired insects within a week or so than with the prior use of retail products such as Black Flag or Ortho. Scorpions are a big issue during the summer months and although I did not have much of an issue at all fortunately, killing their food source is my goal. That is why I selected Talstar.

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.

QI did use Talstar on the inside bottom of couch , will this hurt family

A

Talstar P is not labeled to be used on furniture, only as a crack and crevice treatment. The label reads to 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.

We recommend steam cleaning the furniture where the Talstar P has been applied to remove any residual. Please read label thoroughly for listed areas on where Talstar P is to be applied.

I live in Plantation, FL 33324..... looking for the best outside general insect/pest control for my lawns .... are granules better than spraying, as I can do either. Also just recently have the little ghost/sugar ants inside my car.. what do I use for that.

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.

Our Complete Ant Kit is perfect for sugar ants, or argentine ants which is what their real name is.  The ants will eat the products in the Complete Ant Kit and take them back to wherever their colony is and feed the bait to the queen and all of the other colony members.  Usually within 5 - 10 days the entire colony will be eliminated.  The ant gel is for placement inside the home or car, and the granules are meant for outside around the home.  However, since our kit comes with bait plate stations, you can place both the gel and the granules in the bait plate stations so the ants inside the car have a choice when feeding.

October 27, 2014 Jack from Eden, Ny asked:

QProfessional sprayed Talstar P in florida room along baseboards and windows.
I had a carpenter ant problem in my florida room ceiling. Pest control guy sprayed all along the windows and baseboard. Before he sprayed I told him I had an infant that would be crawling in that room. I was very nervous, but he said not to be concerned, once the product dries. He made me feel like a weirdo. I waited a good month before I let anyone enter the room. I wanted to shampoo the carpets, because I am sure his sprayer got spray on the edge of carpet/baseboard. I called a few companies and they said if I shampooed the carpets the product would be useless. So, I never did. I did however, wipe the baseboards and doors. As a worried parent, is my child safe? We have to walk through this room to get in our back yard. She has already been crawling on the floor and probably have put her hands in her mouth afterwards. After a little research of half lives, it seems talspar p lasts a long time. So I am worried that there was a residual on the carpet, she touched it, than put fingers in her mouth. Please, any info will be greatly appreciated.

A Talstar P is labeled to be pet and child safe once dry and one of our most popular general insecticides for inhome use. When Talstar P is applied as a crack and crevice treatment along baseboards, window frames and door entry points and had time enough time to dry, it will not pose any harm to human contact. This product is not labeled to be sprayed as a broadcast on carpeted areas inside the home, only applied as crack and crevice.  Talstar P does have a 90 day residual on the inside of the home, but if the areas where the product was applied has been wiped down with warm soapy water, the product has been removed and would not longer be effective.

QCan leaves sprayed with Talstar P later be used to compost?
My tree was sprayed with Talstar in August. Now it is October and the leaves have fallen from the tree. Is it safe to use these leaves in my compost pile?

A We would not recommending using treated leaves in compost because Talstar P is not labeled to be used in any type of compost.

QLooking for something to kill spiders, roaches, ants, etc?
Need something to spray the outside perimeter of a building. Also need something safe to spray in an area where there are children (church nursery).

A

Talstar P is a great general purpose insecticide that is labeled for over 75 types of insects that can be used indoors and outdoors. Talstar P has a long residual, so it keeps on killing pests for over three months after you've sprayed it. Plus, Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall.

Talstar P leaves a 30 day residual outside and a 90 day residual inside. Mix 1oz of Talstar P per gallon of water in a hand pump sprayer for best application.

Inside the building, 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.

Outside the home or building, 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 building, approx. 3 feet up the side of the house and 2 feet out from the building. 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.

QWhat is a general recommendation for a program/steps to minimize/eliminate spiders, ants and insects in a home?
My wife and I purchased a renovated home in June 2014. Typical two story colonial with a basement and crawlspace just Northeast of Philadelphia. We've seen a few ants and spiders as we've moved into the Fall season. Is there a DIY suggested program to apply to the house to protect it from insects and to eliminate those that may be starting to come inside?

A Using Talstar P would be a great option for outdoor perimeter and indoor control. Talstar P is labeled for over 75 types of insects and will leave a 90 day residual inside the home and 30 day residual outside the home.  In a hand pump sprayer, mix .33-1 fl oz of Talstar with 1 gallon of water. Spray 2-3ft up the foundation and 2-3ft out from the foundation focusing on entry points to the home (window frames, window sills, door entries, cracks in foundation, etc) . Inside the home, spray Talstar as a crack and crevice treament along 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.

QSettlement and effectiveness
Could Talstar P settle in its bottle after open? Mine did and become very watery like milk. It is stored in garage away from direct sun, caps closed. In this watery state, is it still effective? It used to work very effectively before the settlement happened.

A Talstar P (Talstar One) has a shelf life of 3-5 years. Talstar P is a beige liquid. Settling can occur within any insecticide. We would recommend contacting us with the lot number and we can find out when it was made. Our phone number is 866-581-7378 and business hours are 9 AM-5PM EST.
