Q&A Home

Gerald from Warren, Michigan writes,

My apple tree has a carpenter ant nest.

If Talstar P should not be used on fruit trees, what is safe to use and eliminate the carpenter ants? If Talstar P is used to kill the carpenter ants on the fruit tree, is the fruit safe to eat after one year from using Talstar P.?


Talstar P (Talstar One) cannot be used on an apple tree. We would recommend using the Carpenter Ant Kit # 1. It has a granular and a sugar bait. This can be placed in areas around the tree. The ants will take food back to the colony and eradicate it.
