Talstar XTRA Granules

The broad spectrum control of new Talstar XTRA granular insecticide is labeled for use against most ants (including fire ants) as well as chinch bugs, fleas, ticks, mole crickets, crane flies and many other lawn pests. Talstar XTRA Granules are an excellent choice for fire ant control --Talstar XTRA granular is proven to eliminate dangerous fire ant colonies in four hours or less. Which means you can help your customer return to their yards with complete peace of mind, sooner than you ever thought possible.

This innovative granule is approved for broadcast lawn, perimeter and mound treatments, making it a versatile and valuable component of your ongoing pest control program. And because it achieves impressive results even at low application rates, Talstar XTRA granular insecticide is an excellent, cost-effective solution for fast-acting, long-lasting protection.

What makes the granule unique is Verge Granule Technology. FMC has made the granules the exact same shape and size for better, more uniform distribution during application. The Verge Granule is made from a clay material that dissolves in under one minute when watered in making sure the active ingredients are delivered quickly and efficiently. As an added bonus the Verge Granule is odor-free and almost completely dustless.




Fire Ant Control

Research trials and field tests conducted by industry professionals have proven that with the addition of its powerful new active ingredient (Zeta-Cypermethrin), Talstar XTRA granular insecticide eliminates fire ant colonies within four hours or less. And in some cases, the fire ant populations were decimated in minutes, not hours. At these speeds, other products can’t even come close to the control of Talstar XTRA granular insecticide.

Excellent Residual

In addition to its breakthrough active ingredient, Talstar XTRA granular insecticide has been formulated with the same long-lasting residual of Talstar PL granular insecticide, for the highly dependable control professionals have come to expect. While fire ants and other pests can be gone in as little as minutes, the residual protection of Talstar XTRA granular insecticide is proven to remain effective for at least four months.

Flexibility

Talstar XTRA is approved for use on a wide variety of application sites, including residential lawns, institutional grounds, around buildings (public, commercial and industrial), parks, recreational areas and athletic fields.

    4 of 5 stars  Just OK
    By Bubba in Orlando, Florida on 10/16/2010

    This product worked great... at first. Applied it correctly and it was like a nuclear bomb went off - no ants, no crickets, no anything. However, a week or so went by and the ants were back. Why? Probably because of local control. I have lots of sandy spots and those don't take to the poison well? I find the liquid talstar HARDER to apply, but it works better in all conditions. For some reason the granular works well for yards and areas with no sand, etc. The granules are also hard to spread in landscape beds. Talstar as a whole is the BEST so maybe the answer is to buy granular for the grassy areas that are usually large and hard to cover with spray and then buy the spray for the landscaping beds and sandy spots in your lawn. Either way BE CAREFUL this stuff is so toxic that in minutes lizards, crickets, and ants start to flee their hiding places and you'll find them everywhere... dead! 5 stars for the liquid Talstar for sure, 4 stars for Talstar XTRA because despite the fact it has pretty ant(s) on the packaging it is not that great for ant(s) and may not work around planting beds, near sidewalks, and/or empty patches in lawns.

    5 of 5 stars  Talstar Granules
    By Robert in Macon, GA on 04/14/2012
    Verified Purchase

    I put the granules out around the shrubbery and foundation of the house according to directions. I used the Talstar spray a month ago on the walls of the house. My roach problem has almost been elimintated. The Roaches I do see don't feel so good. Along with most other houses in Macon, last week we had our yearly infestation of redbugs crawling everywhere - except where that I had sprayed with Talstar. Good stuff and I like the lack of odor and ease of use. Make certain you have a good spreader.

    We were getting ready to have a big birthday party for the Grandson and found too many fire ants to take the chance. We used the Talstar Xtra on the recomendation of a friend who is in the pest control business. We spread 50 pounds with the lawn spreader and didn't see one ANT at the party. Great product, Thanks.

    I love this product. I was intoduced to it 10 years ago by a friend who received rave reviews from his neighbors on how great his lawn looked. Granted this is not a fertilizer, but using it removes insects from your lawn and allows for a healthy, green lawn.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Does the job
    By Brandon4791 in Farmington, AR on 09/21/2016

    A couple years ago, we had a house built on some land that had been cow pasture for at least the past two hundred years. A few days after they sodded the yard, thousands of little ant hills sprouted up everywhere like the stars in the sky. The little guys were brazen in their attempt to enter the house as well. My better half and I felt overwhelmed and we called Terminix. A very kind associate came over and diligently applied Delta Dust all over the house and Delta G in the yard and charged us over $200. It was like shooting a BB gun at a freight train. Didn't make a difference at all. So I came to this website, did "Shop by Pest" applied the Talstar and two days later the anthills were gone. This stuff is easy to apply, not expensive, and gets the job done!!

  • 5 of 5 stars  Works as Advertised
    By Don in Morris cty, NJ on 09/15/2016

    I'm always a little skeptical about product performance promises. This product works and works well. I applied 2 1/2 months ago and still working. Getting ready to apply again since carpenter ants will be active in the next few weeks, the flyers that is. Not sure what I should use next year since they say that pests can develop a resistance if one particular product is used to frequently.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Talstar Xtra beats Bayer product for control of sod webworms
    By Woodshoe41 in Houston, TX on 09/06/2016

    Used the big box Bayer product for several years, had to repeatedly apply granules and supplement with spraying to get some control. One Talstar Xtra application of 2#/1000 sq ft has given 2 months total control (to date). Also no mosquitoes in our very wet summer in Houston, related or not, it's all good. Have converted 3 neighbors to Talstar past 2 years. Have enough to make second application if necessary in our wet-hot climate.

    By J. in MA on 07/19/2016

    I'm used to mowing the lawn high, and the liquid one doesn't get to the root easily. So I changed to use this granual one the first time. Observed quite many June bugs dead in under the grass. Not sure how long it will last. Time will tell. It is pretty expensive though.

I have bird feeders throughout my property, birds squirrels and rabbits all feed. I am concerned if there is any danger of harming them by using Talstar .....Thank you

Once you have watered in the Talstar XTRA and allow it to completely dry, Talstar XTRA is completely safe for birds, squirrels, rabitts, pets, and family members.

QCan Talstar Xtra be used around fruit trees?

ATalstar Xtra Granules cannot be used around a fruit tree or vegetable garden but can safely be used in a flower garden. For frui trees and vegetable gardens you can use a product such as Sevin Granules for insect control. As long as you keep the product away from the dripline of the tree you should be able to use the Talstar Xtra granules safely around the fruit tree. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

QIs Talstar XTRA Granular Insecticide safe for chickens?
I need to get rid of millipedes both inside and outside. I have chickens that can get in my flower beds that lay eggs for us. Is this product safe and the best one for millipedes (crunchy worms)?

A

We would not recommend using Talstar XTRA Granular Insecticide in areas where chickens will be feeding. You should keep people and animals out of the treatment area until after the granules have been watered in and the application is completely dry. Please see the product label for complete application instructions. Please note that Talstar EZ Granules are no longer available, as they have been replaced by Talstar XTRA Granules.

For millipede control, you should use an insecticide barrier around the structure, but in order to eradicate them you must locate and eliminate their breeding source, which would be moist, dark areas, such as mulch beds or soil under groundcovers that has not been aired or turned. Please see our Millipede Control Page for more information.

QIs mid-July too late to apply the Talstar XTRA granules to help control mole crickets?
Located in PA.

A

Using Talstar XTRA Granules to achieve acceptable control of mole crickets is difficult because preferred grass areas are subject to continuous invasion during early spring by this extremely active stage. Application can be made at any season and should be applied as late in the day as possible and be watered in with up to .5'' of water immediately after treatment. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application to the mole crickets closer to the soil surface where contact with the insecticide will be maximized.  Please see the product label for complete application instructions.
