For Use In

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

Application

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.

Coverage Area

Talstar PL Granules cover approximately 12,500 square feet if applied at the rate of roughly 2 pounds per 1,000 square feet per 25 pound bag.

Time to Kill

Talstar kills pest insects immediately and also provides a residual protection for up to 90 days.

is it pet safe?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2018
Does this work on springtails?
Sppupg on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Talstar Granules will work for springtails, application should be used in areas with moisture and organic matter. https://www.solutionsstores.com/springtail-control
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 telstar safe for pets?
Vickey W on Sep 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Because Talstar works so incredibly well, we would do nearly anything to keep using it. Thankfully, we only have to keep the dogs off the treated area for a day. I called Solutions Pest & Lawn to ask about the dogs and was told I could lightly water down the Talstar and the dogs would be unaffected. We did that the first year but later found that just keeping them off of the treated area for a day & night worked and we have ZERO bugs in our yard for 3 months at a time.
should talstar be watered when applied as preventative measure when insects not evident?
J M on Jun 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have started doing this on a regular(ish) 5 month cycle, and have had great results. Grasshoppers were destroying out garden, ants devoured our peaches, and all kinds of other bugs were having their way with our property. Now, i have only seen 3 grasshoppers this year. Last year, when I walked around, a wave of grasshoppers would be jumping away from me. I would say yes to your question, depending on how bad your bug problems are. I hope that helps.
Does it treat chinch bugs?
Dk M on Aug 17, 2018

Is this the finest granuel there is?
I am under the impression that there is a fine granuel and a courser one.
Thank you
Joan on May 23, 2016
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.

Does its job.
The granules are a bit more fine than others I have used, which is good in terms of coverage, ease of watering in, and spreading. The only problem I have run into is the fact that there is almost always a breeze or wind where I live, so the finer granules tend to float away a bit from the area being treated. I would not call this a failing, though, as I simply accounted for the breeze, and let it help me spread the granules. The next day, there was not an insect to be found in the area I had treated, and that is what I was after. Also, it does not seem to enter flowers as there have been zero bee deaths in my garden area.
