For Use In

Talstar PL is for use around homes commercial and non commercial structures hospitals hotels motels schools and food processing facilities.


Talstar PL Granular Insecticide is for outdoor broadcast or spot treatment and should be applied with the proper equipment to ensure the best coverage of the areas being treated.

See label for specific application rates and equipment settings.

Broadcast Spot Applications: For the control of actively foraging ants (including Imported Fire Ants) broadcast uniformly 2.3 to 4.6 lbs. Talstar PL granular insecticide per 1000 sq. ft. (0.2 to 0.4 lbs. a.i./Acre).

Flea larvae: Flea larvae develop in the soil of shaded areas that are accessible to pets or other animals. Irrigate the treated area with up to 0.5 inches of water immediately after application to activate (release from the granule) the insecticide.

Fire ant mound treatment: Apply 1/2 cup of Talstar PL Granular Insecticide per mound and then drench the mound with 1 to 2 gallons of water. The mound should be drenched with sufficient force to break its apex and allow the insecticide to flow into the ant tunnels. Treat three feet out around the mound.For best results, apply in cool weather (65 to 80˚F) or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Food utensils such as teaspoons and measuring cups should not be used for food purposes after use with insecticide

Resistance: Some insects are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly for control. Because the development of resistance cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. Consult your local or state pest management authorities for details. If resistance to this product develops in your area, this product, or other products with a similar mode of action, may not provide adequate control. If poor performance cannot be attributed to improper application or extreme weather conditions, a resistant strain of insect may be present. If you experience difficulty with control and suspect that resistance is a reasonable cause, immediately consult your local company representative or pest management advisor for the best alternative method of control for your area.

Hi, I am in Texas. Does it take care of the spiders too?
Shyam on Mar 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Shyam: It takes care of spiders that crawl onto your house from the ground. The granules are not effective against spiders that blow onto your house from trees, etc. using their web strands. You would need Talstar liquid concentrate diluted properly and sprayed on spider infested areas. Knock the webs down prior to spraying. This combination will eliminate spiders.
Is this the finest granuel there is?
I am under the impression that there is a fine granuel and a courser one.
Thank you

BEST ANSWER: No the talstar is the finest granules, there is also Bifen Granules.

What are you needing to control in general.
why does it show to water in the talstar Pl when it shows to water in on the attached movie insert
JR on May 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi JR. You water in Talstar PL to wash the bifenthrin off of the granule and get it down to the soil level where the insects live. The sand the product is on is just a carrier to make application easier. The goal is to get the active ingredient to the soil level so it can kill the pests.
