Our main product of choice is TALSTAR-P, this is a synthetic pyrethroid, which encompasses all the components of the organic pesticide, PYRETHRIN, and at the same time it is able to with stand some of the elements that break some products down to fast making them unable to gain proper control, the end results is more applications of that product is needed increasing the risk of exposure to the client. Exposure risks are greatest during application and by limiting the number of applications we can limit the risk of exposure.

Talstar-P has the broadest label available and is considered a multi use product.
