Will Talstar kill mice?

I realized later that there might be a mouse in my house. Can Talstar poison the mouse? I've laid several traps with lots of peanut butter, and I have not yet been able to catch the mouse.

Answer:

Talstar P will do a great job killing insects, but it will have no effect on a mouse. It is important when setting/placing traps for mice to put the traps directly into the travel paths that mice use. If the mice are not accepting peanut butter as a bait, you will need to try something else. Cotton balls with a drop of vanilla wedged onto the bait pedal, bits of string tied to the bait pedal or other items that you have noticed that they are already eating such as pet food or bits of bread work well too.
