Q. bifenthrin insecticide?
I am interested in purchasing some of your telstar insecticide, but, I notice many different prices / descriptions for the same telstar insecticide. Are their that many different formulations of telstar that treat different insects?
A. Talstar Pro
is one type of insecticide that is made with a Bifenthrin active ingredient. You may be able to find generics out there that use the same active ingredient but to our understanding, they should have different names. There is just one kind of Talstar Pro that actually comes in different sized bottles which may play a part in the price differences. Talstar is also a broad spectrum insecticide and will work effectively against a large variety of insect pests.

Q. fire ants?
does bifen kill fire ants not just relocate them like everything else I have tried
A. Bifen is a bifenthrin active ingredient that will kill insects by method of contact kill. In other words, they must walk over the treated area and come in contact with the insecticide to be affected by it. A lot of the pyrethroid active ingredients like bifenthrin that have a contact kill method are not non-repellent insecticides. Non-repellent insecticides are non-detectable by smell or taste. Repellent insecticides, though, can be detected and sometimes, it will push them back. For fire ants, we definitely recommend using baits. Granule baits can be used to do a direct mound treatment or a perimeter treatment. Baits will be carried back to the colony. The best season to apply fire ant bait is during the fall season. This is the time that they are do last minute foraging before going deep underground for the winter season. We recommend Surrender Fire Ant Killer or Extinguish Fire Ant Bait.
