    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
    How often should I apply Talstar P outside for normal pest control?
    A
    During the warm months of the year you can apply Talstar P once a month. As the seasons cool and the insects become less active you can apply Talstar P once every 3 months for general pest control.

    Q
    Can Talstar be sprayed on rose bushes?
    A
    Yes, Talstar can be applied to any bushes, shrubs, trees, and landscaped areas as well as flowering plants like roses.  However, you should minimize the spray on the actual flowering rose as you do not want it to get on any bees that help with pollination.

    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
    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
    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.

    Q
    Does Talstar-P kill stink bugs and box elder bugs?
    If so, does it only kill them on contact, or will it remain effective for newly arriving bugs?
    A
    Talstar P does work for stinkbugs and boxelder bugs. Talstar P does not have an immediate knockdown effect but it does leave a long lasting residual. We do encourage our customers to apply Talstar P once a month through the stinkbug/boxelder bug season (August-November).

    Q
    What is the best treatment for army worms in Bermuda grass lawn with pets?
    A

    Talstar P is the most popular choice for army worm control. You should spray later in the evening when the worms are most active. You will continue to see moths, but it is only the actual worm that causes damage. The Talstar P product label recommends:

    "To ensure optimum control, delay watering (irrigation) or mowing for 24 hours after application. If the grass area is being maintained at a mowing height of greater than 1 inch, then higher application rates (Up to 1 fluid oz. per 1000 square feet) may be required during periods of high pest pressure"

    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 kill Japanese beetles if sprayed on the lawn? If so, what usage rate should I use?
    A
    Talstar P will help control adult Japanese beetles when used at a 1 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft area rate. You can mix the 1 fl oz of Talstar into 1-2 gallons of water to insure even coverage. Talstar P will not work well for control of beetle grubs or larva and is not labeled for this use. If you need to control the grubs you will need to use a product that is labeled for them such as Dylox 6.2 or Hi-Yield Grub Free Zone.

    Q
    How do I get rid of sand flies or Noseeums?
    A
    These insects do not truly infest a home as they do not reproduce in the indoor environment, but they may still be abundant inside if their breeding site is close by. Unfortunately the breeding sites for these flies are so numerous and varied, it is impossible to eliminate them all. These tiny pests are small enough to crawl through the average window screen and fit through cracks and crevices around windows and door frames.

    You can help prevent these flies from entering your home by spraying a barrier application of Talstar P paying special attention to window frames, window screens, door frames, and cracks and crevices that may be used as points of entry.  A screen with a very fine mesh (smaller than 16mesh) will help prevent entry. Additionally it may be helpful to keep ceiling fans and window fans on at high speeds to keep insects out of small areas.

    If flies have already entered your home and you need immediate control use Microcare. This product offers a fast knockdown and kill of flying insects, giving you immediate relief.

    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.
