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 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 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.

Talstar kills Stink Bugs!
By Wally on 09/25/2010
For the past several years my family and I were bombarded by stick bugs. Our whole house was covered twice a year, spring and late summer to early fall. They were in our house, in our garage, everywhere. A friend of mine who owns a lawn care business told me about Talstar P. I managed to buy 2 qts. at a local farmers feed mill. I mixed 3/4 of an oz. to 1 gal. of water in a hand sprayer. After mixing and using 5 gal., I had my whole house and garage and even my yard sprayed by 1 pm. By 5 pm, I noticed hundreds of stick bugs laying on our back porch and front deck and only a hand full still on the side of our home. Can"t wait to see them all dead.

Leaves no stain inside
By Chris on 02/14/2008
Talstar P leaves no stain on the floor when sprayed in my home. Does a good job on all pest inside and out. I use it for roaches and spiders inside my home. I spray on fire ant mounds with great results, one gallon will treat around 6 to 10 medium size mounds. Price is right too.

Bug free yard :-)
By Wilfredo on 06/16/2010
We have been living in this house for 13+ years and it's been virtually impossible to enjoy our backyard due to mosquitos. Throughout the years we tried several products claiming effectiveness against these blood suckers. They were all a waste of time and $$$. After applying Talstar P we noticed instant relief of Mosquitos with no harsh chemical odors/smell. It been three weeks (rain storms daily) since our first application and this product is as effective as day one.

Best stuff I have ever used
By Garry on 05/11/2013
OK so here it goes. Mix it according to directions or just a TADD stronger. Then Spray around the outside of the building with a 2 foot spray pattern from the walls. Make sure that all pet foods and water is not in the spray pattern area. I also sprayed all along my fence/block wall line from my neighbors property just in case that they had more bugs then I had. I also sprayed inside the house. When I did this I had removed all contents from every cabinet and drawer. Then I took out the last drawers and sprayed there. Make sure that you wash all dishes just in case I had contaminated the area. Make sure that you have now food in these areas and this includes pet foods. Now I want you to understand that you are doing this because you a BUG PROBLEM. Do not skimpy out on any of the steps. The next thing is to respray about every two weeks after tat for a month total. The reason for this is because you will kill the bugs running around but you wont kill all of the bugs that are in casing / eggs. Some bugs lay them very often and the spray may or will not penetrate them on contact until the bug has hatched from what ever they are encased in. The reason you need to do this that often is because of the mating cycles of these little critters. I have to tell you this is the best stuff I have ever used. When I do spray I usually have to vacuum up and sweep up outside all of the dead varmints that are laying around. It is truly amazing. Good luck and have fun. By the way you are not supposed to do t his but the average exterminator charges are quit high so you can save a lot of money doing this yourself and probably do a lot better job. If you do your friends places it is illegal to charge them unless you are licensed HINT HINT:::::: The bug man I had come to my home was 80 dollars per month and he came out twice a month for only a short time. This can be expensive so you do the math and see what you can save and how much money you can make. Did I SAY THAT OOPS. One more thing. I am going to buy a gallon the next time just in case we get some government regulation that say you can no longer buy this on the net or even at all. At least this will keep me supplied for a very long time. Good luck

A great product!

We have had problems with little black ants invading our home for the last couple years. I've tried pretty much everything from the hardware store but that stuff barely made a dent. I purchased Talstar P a few weeks ago. I only wish I had looked into this two years ago. Within 1 day, there was about a 90% reduction in the ants. I sprayed 5 days ago and have not seen a single ant in the last couple days. Usually the ants were at their worst right after a strong rain. Well, it rained very hard yesterday, for the first time, we didn't see a single ant. I'm sold on this stuff!

I have collected a lot of data on Scorpion elimination using different products and nothing else but Talstar P appears to be effective. I spray every six weeks and they are gone. Excellent product, my family and I feel is now safe.

One Great Product
By Dg on 06/10/2009
I have used Talstar P for a year with great results. This is a good product and I would definitely recommend it. Hope this product stays on the market for the do-it-yourself (saves money) individual.

Great and working product
By John on 05/06/2010
All the clover mites and ants are gone just after one treatment. Really happy with the product. Hope that the insects would never come again if I continue performing the maintenance. Wondering if this is US product or China product but it is made in China. Why is it made in China anyway?

Nothing else compares

Buying to control ants and chinch bugs. Have used it in the past, and nothing else compares to Talstar One's abilities.

Excellent pricing, fast FREE delivery, and an 800 number that was answered quickly and answered my questions. This same product was almost 2x the price at my local DIY pest control store. A very easy web site to navigate and find my product (Talstar P). Also great email notifications on the progress of my order.

In response to John's question of where it is made
By Chris on 05/27/2010
The final product is manufactured in Valdosta, GA. But the active ingredient comes from China.

This stuff works great! In New Mexico, we get cockroaches from April to October. This stuff sends them to your neighbor's house. If it works for the indestructible cockroach, it will probably work for anything. I no longer pay the bug guy $50 per visit.

Good all around pesticide--indoors & out. Provided good flea control all summer. (Has little or no effect on spiders) personally, I would not purchase again because of one label----made in China.

Several years ago my lab got out of our yard and was found several miles from our house. When we brought her home we did not know she was covered in ticks. Within a few days it became evident and we groomed her and removed well over 100 ticks! Within about 3 weeks we had ticks crawling up our walls! It was GROSS! I tried EVERYTHING, to no avail. Finally I got some Talstar and the ticks began to disappear. Within about 2 weeks no ticks. We have been tick free now for 3 years and we just used Talstar for termites. LOVE IT!

Back Yard Life
By Greg on 09/07/2010
I live in Minnesota, and this summer has been the worst! We have had lots of rain and hot weather making it ideal for mosquitoes. We have a back yard pool that we could not even get close to. The bugs would just drive you back into the house. We used every kind of sprinkle and hose spray that we could get at the local farm supply. I found out about Talstar from a groundskeeper in my area. I mixed it in my sprayer and sprayed the entire three aches of my yard. Within one day we could sit outside and enjoy our home in the country. It has been working for three weeks and I have not had to reapply. Don’t let the price drive you away. It takes very little to cover a lot of area. Best thing I have found to use for mosquito control.

Did I do something wrong?
By Rob on 05/06/2010
I gave 2 stars because I've used Bifenthrin before in other products, like Ortho, with terrific results! I thought Talstar would be THAT much better but after applying the max dosage to my lawn it made NO difference! Still tons of lawn critters, spiders, mole crickets, scorpions, fire ants, gnats, mosquitoes. So I sprayed just around our back patio area with "Bayer advanced" and in two hours there was a small army of dead bugs listed above on the patio. Now, like I say I've used Bifenthrin before in lower doses with great results. So is it possible I got a bum batch or something??? I dunno...

If it is a bug, this will kill it....!
By Danny on 10/31/2010
A few years ago I purchased an old home in the hill country of Texas. The place had every creepy crawly critter I had ever seen, and some I hadn't. I hired a professional exterminator and once every three months he would service my property with excellent results. When I found I could purchase the same products he use for a fraction of the cost of his service I fired him. I apply Talstar P inside & out and the bugs are gone. Once in a while I'll find a bug, but it's dead. It is safe to use around the pets and live stock and I recommend it to all my friends.

I had a major infestation of brown dog ticks in my yard which worked it's way into the house. I had tried many other products with little to no success. With Talstar One I saw major reduction after 24 hours and with a second application a week later my problem is gone. It is a great product.

Talstar P Performance
By Quinton on 06/26/2010
I have done my own pest control for a number of years. I have never in all the years had a product perform as Talstar P has performed. Before I ordered, I read all the reviews which were basically "glowing" in terms of ratings. I concluded that the product must be worth trying. I can now affirm that the ratings were right on the mark! The only thing better than the product was the service from DoMyOwnPestControl.com. I highly recommend both!

Nothing works better!
By Karen on 09/23/2010
Within hours of spraying this there wasn't an ant or bug to be found in my yard or porch! It's wonderful to be able to walk on my lawn and not be stepping in ant piles, my dog is not being eaten by fleas either, they've all disappeared too. My garage is free of spiders spining their webs too!

Last year we purchased a home on a 1 acre lot with a very private wooded border. However, the problem we were having with mosquitoes made enjoying our new back yard impossible. I tried the bug control sprays you can buy from the big box hardware stores - with very little results. This year I considered using a professional service but before spending almost $400 - I did some research and found your site. The customer service was excellent and the results were even better! It's been almost 4 weeks with NO mosquitoes - and we have had some large storms with lots of rain - still going strong!! I can't say enough of how much I love this product - now I can finally enjoy our yard!
