Are there any adverse effects to birds when using Talstar One?

I have new tenants moving into my rental property and they have various indoor birds. I have a service that sprays the exterior of the house on a regular basis with Talstar One. With summer coming up, the tenants are concerned about the effect on the birds if they were to leave the windows open when the outside of the house is being treated. Is this product going to have any adverse effect on the birds? Thank you


While we do not think the Talstar would hurt the birds, sometimes it is just a matter of perception. Basically if someone thinks the product is likely to hurt their beloved pet, they may think any health issues the pet has in the days, weeks, months following the application is because of the insecticide. We recommend closing the windows while the exterior treatments are being done and then opening them after the application has dried in order to avoid any issues. Talstar is odorless, dries clear and is known to be one of the safest insecticides to use around people and animals.
