Will Talstar One work in the garage to kill both adult fleas and eggs?

Our cat used to sleep in the garage. I noticed he was scratching frequently so I applied a spot on flea treatment. All the fleas jumped off him and infested our garage. Every time we come in from the garage we track them into the house. The cat now lives in an outdoor house and we've bombed the garage twice to no avail. Will Talstar One work in the garage to kill both adult fleas and eggs? If not, what should we use?


Talstar would not be tbe best choice for fleas.  Talstar is a great product for almost any other insect and can be used indoors and outdoors safely.  However, for treatment of fleas the talstar does not have an IGR (insect growth regulator) which is important for the treatment of fleas.  We suggest one of our best selling products for fleas called Ultracide.  It is a product made only for the treatment of fleas and has both an adulticide and an IGR for the treatment of maturing fleas.  It should work great in your garage.  You should treat every 14 days until the problem is gone.
