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.

    By Robert in Macon, GA on 04/14/2012

    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.

    By Roscoe in Hilltop Lakes, Texas on 04/09/2012

    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.

    By S in Richmond, TX on 05/06/2016

    I was somewhat skeptical about ever finding a granular insecticide that worked as well as diazinon did. But I gave this a shot based on the reviews. To my surprise it exceeded my expectations and within a few days I started seeing exceptional results. I can say I will be a regular5 customer with this product from now on.

    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.

    By Whitney in Maryland on 03/15/2016

    I put this down because it kept the grubs away. I missed two seasons and was plaqued by moles, rabbits and groundhogs. It just rained so I know it will work quickly. Now to till the soil and broadcast spread a second bag just to be sure. Every product I have purchased over the past 7 years has never failed me since becoming a homeowner. Thank you!!

    5 of 5 stars  Great Product
    By Jacksonville, in Jacksonville, FL on 01/28/2016

    Been fighting flees in the yard for 3 years. Tried the Lowes & Home Depot & Alternative Pest Control products. Nothing worked. Dogs still kept getting flees and lots of them. (Yes, I treated the inside of my house and bedding too.) (live in Jacksonville, FL so flees are year round, no hard freezes in 3 years.) My next door neighbor has had only 1 flee in 7 years. (one, probably from my yard) He let me use the last of his and it worked pretty well, just didn't have nearly enough for my yard. But the number of flees went down on my dogs. Therefore, Bought 3 bags, used only 1 full bag for my entire yard and within days of the application and bathing my dogs - NO FLEES on any of the dogs. WOW I now have a happy wife & dogs. And I couldn't be happier. Thank you. Great product. (the other two bags are for future treatments. I'm following my neighbors treatment plan which is the one recommended.)

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.

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.

What setting do you use for a Turf Builder Edge Guard Mini Broadcast Spreader when applying Talstar XTRA Granules?

A

If you need to use 1.5-4.6 lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft you would add the needed amount of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high.

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.

A

This is the most economical way for you to treat fire ants effectively. Please refer to the product label for further instruction.
