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.

    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.

    5 of 5 stars  "Ticks no more!"
    By Jenette in Jackson, NJ on 05/02/2016

    After being diagnosed with Lyme disease a few years ago, I contracted with a pest control company to treat my lawn twice a year. I noticed that Talstar XTRA granules was the product that they used. I determined that it was more cost effective for me to apply this product myself, and found "DoMyOwnPestControl.com" on-line and have since purchased it from them. I apply it three times a year to my lawn and surrounding areas using a broadcast spreader. The original pest control company only used a hand spreader, and I really wondered how thorough they were in applying Talstar. It has worked out wonderfully and I believe that I have solved the tick problem and saved money, as well.

    We have used Talstar for several years to control fire ants, ticks, and fleas. Living in Florida, this is a very important factor in our lives, to live bug free. This product works and keeps on working year after year. We will never use anything else, except we do use Talstar liquid to spray our house.

    1 of 5 stars  Not as effective as stated
    By L in FL on 03/19/2015
    Verified Purchase

    We used Talstar granules for ant control several years ago and it worked very well. Elected to go with the Talstar XTRA based on the product info and reviews and ordered 100#. Put all 100# down, some by hand spreader to enable me to increase the amount of granules in heavier infested areas and the other by push spreader - actually hand scooping out of the hopper to put additional granules on large ant mounds. There was a small ant mound on a brick walkway - put the granules directly on it by hand. Order another 50# as had another area that needed ant control. It rained after the initial spreading of the granules and within 2 days the ants on the brick walkway were alive and well! Had to supplement with a liquid 'kill them now' insect control. Needless to say for the amount of money we spent for 150# of this we are extremely disappointed. We will be looking for something else for our future ant control.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    If the Talstar Xtra granules are applied at a higher rate and watered in as labeled, you should see an initial drop in activity within the first day or two after application. It is important to keep in mind that the active ingredients in Talstar Xtra will not transfer throughout the ant colonies. Depending on what type of ants you have in the yard, sometimes you can even see a surge in activity just after applying insecticides. The Talstar granules, however, will have a residual (they'll keep working) for at least 30 days, so you should see results for weeks. You may want to give the product some more time to work before using other products. You may also want to consider using an ant bait that will work throughout the colony; you will want an identification on the specific type of ant to choose the best bait.

    Product shipped the next day and received it within three days of purchase. Product was easy to use and instructions were very clear on the website. Product appears to have worked exactly as advertised. Used it for mole crickets that had set up a home in my backyard and they were attracting some very unwelcome garter snakes! Now, no crickets and haven't seen a snake either! Thankfully.

    I am very pleased with everything but the product. I saw a pest control company using a simular product and it worked extremely well. I had used another product available on this site that worked fairly well but not as well as what the pest control company used. I asked and was told it was Talstar Granules. I used the product the same way the pest control company did, but it does not kill the ants the way theirs did. The granuals they used were white and a little larger then these. I am not satisified with this product at all.

QIs Talstar Xtra Granules safe in areas where wild birds, squirrels and rabbit come to feed
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

ATalstar XTRA is a granule that would be applied with a broadcast spreader and then watered in by 1/4 inch of irrigation or rainfall to activate the product. 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. Please refer to the Talstar XTRA Product Label for complete use instructions.

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 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.

QIf I already put these granules on my black-eyed pea crop, before I read the Q & A, will it poison the crop? Will I get sick from eating the peas?

A

Talstar XTRA Granules are not labled for vegetable gardens. We cannot advise for you to consume anything from the garden after Talstar Xtra was applied. Instead you could use something like Sevin Lawn Insect Granules. If a granule is not necessary, another great option would be the Fertilome Triple Action Plus which can be sprayed in and on the garden for control of insects and vegetable diseases, and the food can be harvested the same day.

QTalstar for roaches, or not?
In this Q&A thread, you have what seems to be conflicting information. One person asks about "Best granules to stop roaches and scorpions" and the recommended product is Talstar XTRA. Another asks "Will Talstar Xtra repel roaches?", and the response is "Talstar Xtra will not repel roaches nor is it labeled for roach control. We recommend that you stick with a product that is labeled for roaches such as Demand G granules." Can you provide a little more information to help sort this out? Thank you!

ATalstar Granules did have roaches on the product label at one time as an insect that it controlled. However, they removed roaches from the granule label because they found it wasn't as effective on roaches as they had previously thought. We recommend DeltaGard G Granules as this product is specifically labeled for cockroaches and works well at eliminating them in lawns and landscape areas.

QHow would you treat mounds in a horse pasture with Talstar XTRA?

A

According to the manufacturer, Talstar cannot be used in horse pastures for any purpose.

Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait would be a better choice for you. Extinguish plus can be used on pasture land and there are no grazing restrictions for companion animals. Below you will see the grazing info available on the Extinguish Plus product label. Extinguish Plus combines the power of hydramethylnon with an insect growth regulator (IGR) to kill fire ant workers and prevent queens from laying fertile eggs. The result is complete fire ant colony control. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait is best used in the spring or early fall, or whenever fire ants are active. The ants will feed off Extinuish Plus and spread the bait throughout the entire colony, halting the infestation within weeks. Extinguish Fire Ant Bait can be used indoors and outdoors on lawns, pasture land, rangeland, landscaped areas, and golf courses.

EXTINGUISH PLUS may be applied to grass forage
(pastures and rangeland) for the control of fire ants
only in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas,
Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New
Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Use on grass forage
(pastures and rangeland) in states other than those
listed is unlawful. See Outdoor Use table for
application directions. Do not exceed 8 pounds per
acre per year or more than 4 times a year, with a
minimum re-treatment interval of 90 days. Do not bale
and cut treated pastures and rangelands for 7 days
following application. These cutting and baling hay
restrictions for pasture and rangeland do not apply
when the treated pasture and rangeland is used solely
to support COMPANION ANIMALS (e.g., horses,
llamas, etc.). Companion animals grazed on treated
areas cannot be used for food or feed. EXTINGUISH®
PLUS may be used on uncultivated, agricultural, nonfood
crop and non-agricultural land.

QDoes the Talstar Granular Insecticide also help control termites?

ANo, Talstar Xtra Granules would not be a good option when treating for termites.  Talstar Xtra Granules and other liquid products that are meant for pest control are applied to the surface of the ground and are really only meant for treating insects that walk across the ground.  Termites enter the home from underground and never make it to the surface of the ground.  Therefore, they never come into contact with the product on the surface.  For proper termite protection, you have to dig a trench and place product in the trench or under the ground.  For treating termites, we recommend Dominion 2L which is one of our best sellers for professional termite protection.  You should also read our "How to do a Termite Treatment" article which will explain exactly how to treat for termites just like a professional company would.
