Talstar Pro

Talstar Pro Insecticide

Talstar insecticide is a highly sought after product in the DIY pest control industry and it’s no surprise that Talstar products fly off our store shelves; it is an excellent product that gets the jobs done. Talstar Pro has amazingly long lasting effects that make it perfect for perimeter pest control.


Talstar Pro's Outstanding FeaturesSpraying Talstar

One of the things that really makes Talstar stand out from the rest is it’s powerful knock down effect; in fact it is so effective that the makers of Talstar have begun marketing it as an aerosol. Talstar provides solid control and treatment on more than 75 different insects and has an effective residual effect of up to three months. Whether you are dealing with termites, fire ants, chinch bugs, spiders, mosquitos, or millipedes or any other irritant, Talstar will take care of them and kill the entire infestation whether its indoors or outdoors.


Another reason why Talstar is such a hit with homeowners and pest control professionals is that it does not break down quickly when exposed to sunlight. Talstar’s persistence is among the best in the industry as most phosphor based products break down the moment they are exposed to sunlight. This makes it so when applied outdoors, you will get maximum results.


Talstar’s active ingredient which makes it such a solid pest control product is Bifenthrin. Bifenthrin belongs to a family of pesticides known as Pyrethroids. Pyrethroids were originally derived from Chrysanthemums and they act as a neurotoxin to insects and fish. Insecticides in this family have been found to be non-carcinogenic. This makes it safe to use around pets and children. In addition, Talstar is safe to use in areas where food is prepared. Talstar is a brand name so you are getting incredible value if you order this product to treat your bug issues. We also have Bifen IT and Befin XTS products which is a generic brand of Pyrethroid pesticide.


Talstar Pro: A High Quality Liquid ConcentrateMixing Talstar Pro in a gallon sprayer

Talstar comes in multiple formations which include liquids, granules, and aerosols. However it's the liquid concentrate, Talstar Pro, which is especially powerful. To use the concentrated liquid form of Talstar (Talstar Pro) all you need to do is simply mix the concentrate in a one-gallon sprayer with water according to the prescribed ratio on the instruction label. After you have mixed the pesticide you can use it either indoors or outdoors for full perimeter pest control. Talstar is safe to use indoors and has a very low toxicity to mammals so it is safe to uses spaces where pets and children frequent. Talstar also provides no form of damage to vegetation so your lawn and gardens will not be affected at all if you use talstar to treat bugs around your turf and plants.

What is mix rate to kill roaches ?

BEST ANSWER: Use a 0.02% to 0.06% suspension (0.33 to 1 fluid oz. per gallon of

how good is this product for roaches is it the same product for all pests?
Joseph T on Jan 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Talstar Pro, Bifenthrin will work really well for roaches. We always recommend baiting first for roaches that are inside the home, because you are offering them a food source and not hoping the roach moves over your chemical barrier. After about 10 to 14 days you can then apply a residual spray to the area, with Talstar to keep controlling for 90 days.

BEST ANSWER: It is labeled for use to control bed bugs, we recommend our 100% Guaranteed Bed Bug Control Kit.

if you apply talstar on tree trunks will it absorb into root system and absorb through out the tree to kill borers and other pest?
Ralph F on Dec 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Based on what I read on the label, which is copied and pasted here, it is picked up by insects as they move into where it is applied as a barrier.
How it works: "Talstar P is a liquid concentrate insecticide which contains bifenthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid. Pyrethroids work by disrupting an insect's nervous system causing a weakened state followed by death. Talstar P does not provide an instant knockdown of pests, rather, pests pick up the residual active ingredient by contact. Talstar P is a repellent insecticide since it acts quickly enough that social insects such as ants cannot create a pheromone trail. This means that Talstar P will be most effective as a barrier with a thorough application. Talstar P residual can last up to 3 months."
We also want to use it outside.?
Grace S on Apr 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When treating the outside make sure to keep all kids and pets off the area until it has fully dried. It can be applied as a broadcasting spray or it can be used to treat around the foundation of the home and around the entryways.
As a preventative for your house perimiter how often do you reapply the product?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2017

How effective is this product and killing bed bugs and how many times do you have to apply it?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While Talstar Pro is a great product to eliminate bedbugs, it is recommended to not be the sole product used for a bedbug control program in your home.

According to the product label: "Thorough application should be made to crack and crevices where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, box springs, inside empty dressers and clothes closets and carpet edges, high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use this product on bed linens, pillows, mattresses or clothes. Remove all clothes and other articles from dressers or clothes closets before application. Allow all treated areas to thoroughly dry before use. Not recommended for use as sole protection against bedbugs. If evidence of bedbugs is found in/on mattresses, use products approved for this use."

The other products that you will need to use in combination with the Talstar to effectively treat for bedbugs are all included in our Solutions Bedbug Control Kit. You will need to treat every 7-10 days to help break the infestation cycle. You may also find it helpful to read our Bedbug Treatment Guides as it contains a lot of useful information regarding where and how to treat for bedbugs.

BEST ANSWER: Well, ticks are listed on the label. However, chiggers are not, but I would be surprised if it didn't control them as well.

So far , It seems to be working . Put the first treatment down 3 weeks ago . The instructions tell you to treat monthly .I'm not sure if that means 12 months a year or just during bug season . I live in the north east so using a water hose during the winter is not going to happen . I guess treating from spring through fall makes sense .

Does exactly what it says.
This product works great. I just moved into a new house and discovered that we were sharing a house with some insects. One perimeter spray solved the insect problem almost immediately and there have been no sightings of any bugs inside for a couple of weeks now. It also did a great job at controlling the mosquitos around the yard as well. A great product that I highly recommend.

I don’t usually write reviews. I have only used talstar only once but I have been amazed at its performance. Mosquitoes swarm to my wife and she loves to work in the beds of our back yard but she has always had to spray herself with deet to keep from getting eaten up. I fogged the yard 1 month ago and the mosquitos disappeared they are just now beginning to show back up. I will fog again in a couple of days. We are both very excited about this product.

I use Talstar every 4-6 mos during the growing season. Works on everything. I dont let my cats outside for 24 hours after spraying. They haven't been affected by this, nor have the rabbits. I don't have squirrels anymore though....they tromp across the fence and keep going.
