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.
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, ants, fleas, chinch bugs and other turf and ornamental pests.

Talstar PL is the original, sand-sized particle product. Talstar EZ
is the newer and most popular granule size as it is easy to broadcast using a
push spreader or hand seeder. Both PL and EZ Talstar granules contain the
same active ingredient.
The only difference in the two: size of the granule particle.
