    Q
    I have read that Talstar is safe for pets, but what if my pets eat the grass?
    I recently purchased Talstar to treat ants on our property after reading all the reviews. I know pets can enter the treated area after the product has dried, but my issue is that two of my dogs have been eating grass in the yard, and there are a fair amount of ant colonies that I need to treat in the yard itself. My concern is they may eat grass that may have been treated along the property line or around a concrete pad I plan to treat. What precautions do I need to take here? Is there another product you would recommend instead?
    A
    I would imagine that your dogs may eat some grass but probably not a lot of it at once.  Talstar, when mixed with water is only strong enough to kill small insects, like ants.  Your dogs would have to eat a truckload of grass most likely to get sick, and they would probably get much more sick from the grass then the Talstar.  However, of course we recommend anything you can do to minimize your dogs from eating the grass.  The other thing you could do is not broadcast the spray over the whole lawn, but treat the ant mounds individually so the grass in between the mounds is free from spray.  Hopefully your dogs don't eat dirt mounds also.

    Q
    What is the ratio for 4E diazinon for ants, bugs etc? Of course I lost the pamphlet
    I also have a dog, any danger?? A large Lab..
    A
    Residential uses of diazinon were outlawed in the U.S. in 2004. We were able to find product labels by searching for "diazinon 4E specimen label", but we would still recommend contacting the manufacturer for advice on product  usage and safety. We have several products for general pest control that are readily available and are safe to use around humans and pets. Talstar P is one of our best sellers and is also one of safest products for use around the house and is very effective for over 75 different insects .

    Q
    Will Talstar P(Talstar One) kill chinch bugs and grub worms? Waco, Tx.
    A
    Talstar P is labeled for chinch bugs and will do a great job controlling this pest. Talstar P is not labeled for grub worms and most likely will not provide satisfactory results when used to control them. We do have several products that are specifically labeled for grub worms on our website: Grub Worm Control. We also recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and inquire about the best time to start treatments for grubs in your region. In many parts of the country the grubs are already matured and they are emerging as adult beetles.

    Q
    Will Bayer Tree & Shrub Protect & Feed kill bagworms?
    A
    Bayer Tree & Shrub Protect & Feed is not labeled for bagworm control. The imidacloprid products that we carry are not labeled for bagworms and we would not recommend that you try to use them for bagworm control. We recommend that you choose a product that lists bagworms on the product label such as Talstar P (Talstar P is the product most commonly selected by pros for bagworm control), Thuricide, Mavrik, or Permethrin SFR. Please take a few minutes to read our article Bagworm Control to learn when you should start spraying for bagworms.

    Q
    Can I kill the stinkbugs without killing the chickens?
    My chickens have taken care of all my insects for the past ten years. I have had stinkbugs for the third year now. help.
    A
    We would recommend Talstar P for your use. Talstar P is labeled to be used in poultry houses and chicken pens so it should not harm your chickens. You must make sure your chickens are out of the area while you apply Talstar P and then they can return to the area as soon as it is dry. You should dilute 1 ounce of Talstar P per gallon of water and using a hand pump sprayer apply the solution on all door frames, window frames, areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into the structure, a band of soil 6 to 10 feet adjacent to the structure, also to a height of 2 to 3 feet on the foundation where pests may be active or may find entrance. As the stink bugs crawl over the treated area, they will receive a lethal does of the insecticide and usually die within a few hours. You should treat every month starting in August and ending in November for best results.

    Q
    Can Talstar P be used in a broadcast hose-end sprayer for pests in the grass?
    If so, is there a guide for how much to use?
    A
    Yes, Talstar P can be used in a hose end sprayer to apply to a large area like a lawn. You apply at the same rate as a hand held sprayer.  Typically, this is one ounce per gallon of water per 1000 square feet.  So, if you wanted to treat your lawn that was 5000 square feet, you would place 5 ounces of Talstar P in the hose end sprayer and then set or fill your sprayer to the 5 gallon mark.

    Q
    I plan to use Talstar on mulch around the foundation of my brick home. granular or liquid?
    A
    You will get the same results with both the granule and the liquid in this area. We might lean towards the liquid however because it is a bit more versatile and can be applied to the foundation itself and around window and door frames to stop pests from moving in.

    Q
    What product kills the Sri Lanka Weevil. Can we treat the soil where larvae live?
    We know it lays its eggs in the soil so would like to kill the larvae before they hatch. When we returned from the North, we found they have eaten Live Oaks, dahoon holly, crepe myrtle.
    A
    The only product that we know of that is recommended for the Sri Lanka Weevil is Talstar, but Talstar will not kill the eggs. (Talstar is not labeled for the Sri Lanka Weevil but is recommended by many universities that have done research on this pest) We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension as they may have more information on the Sri Lanka Weevil that is invading your region.

    Q
    Can I use Talstar directly on tomato plants?
    I have stink bugs destroying my tomatoes. Would they absorb (the tomatoes) the Talstar if I spray it on them?
    A
    You can absolutely NOT use Talstar on any kind of edible vegetation.  If you have already you will need to discard of those items.  Unfortunately the only product we have at this time that is labeled for treatment of stink bugs on edible crops is Venom.

    Q
    Will Bifenthrin kill grasshoppers? The big orange & black ones that get about 3 inches long?
    They hatch out in March or April & are about 1/2 in long to start with, but grow to about 3 inches long & will destroy any leafy flower or bush. The hatch out by the 100's.
    A
    Bifenthrin products would be a good choice for grasshopper control. You should start applications before the grasshoppers have a chance to hatch. You should thoroughly spray your lawn and water in the application with about a .25 in of water to help the bifenthrin get past the thatch layer and into the soil where grass hoppers actually develop. If you already have grasshoppers you can use Talstar P or Bifen IT at the highest usage rate of 1 oz of product per 1 gallon of water for the quickest knockdown.

    Q
    Can you clarify whether Talstar is safe around kids
    I've read many Q&A's about whether the product is save around children. Most say it is; however, I've read a couple that say "We do not recommend spraying any insecticides directly on areas where children will be coming in skin contact on a regular basis." I'm confused how it can be save to spray on lawns kids play in or indoors but then not spray it where children will be coming in skin contact on a regular basis. Should this product be avoided with babies who will be crawling around?
    A
    Yes. Talstar P can be safely used around pets and children as long as you follow the label instructions; all pets and children need to be out of the area while application is being made and they can return as soon as the application is dry. Talstar is none irratating if it touches the skin, but is not recommended to be around until it has dried. Talstar will not harm babies if the product label is followed.
