Talstar is a synthetic pyrethroid that is available in both granular and liquid concentrate forms. When label instructions are followed, it is very safe towards non-target animals such as birds, reptiles and mammals. Talstar lasts much longer than organophosphate pesticides such as Dursban, Diazinon, Malathion and Acephate. We have had many reported cases of Talstar controlling molecrickets and small flies for up to two months, chinch bugs, ants and fire ants for three months! Only 1 or 2 applications are needed each year for mole crickets. No special site preparation is needed when treating for mole crickets with Talstar. Talstar is very effective in controlling Asian Cockroaches, Clover Mites, ants, fleas, chinch bugs and other turf and ornamental pests.
Using Talstar Granules For Mole Cricket Control
PL granules are best applied through a hand seeder, due to tiny, sand-sized
granular particles. The granules are tiny enough to fall
between blades of turf grass (out of sight from birds and pets), penetrating to the ground
or thatch area where it belongs.
Talstar PL granules small enough to blend in with soil; Talstar EZ
(regular size granule) is made with a carrier that dissolves when wet.
Both designs were made with the safety of ground feeding birds in mind.
Both Talstar EZ and Talstar PL contain the same amount of Bifenthrin insecticide
- the strongest amount allowed without being designated RESTRICTED USE.
Using Talstar Liquid Concentrate For Mole Cricket Control
A quart of Talstar Concentrate will treat about
32,000 square feet of lawn when treating for mole crickets, chinch
bugs. That size can double when treating for ants, fire ants.
