Talstar Professional Recommended for Stink Bugs in 17 States

Supplier News

The product has received approval to make a FIFRA 2(ee) recommendation for use on stink bugs in 17 states hit hard by stink bug infestations

| October 17, 2011

PHILADELPHIA – Talstar Professional insecticide has received approval to make a FIFRA 2(ee) recommendation  for use on stink bugs in 17 states hit hard by stink bug infestations: Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Florida.

Mostly a nuisance, the brown marmorated stink bug doesn’t bite or carry diseases, but it infests houses and buildings at the onset of cooler temperatures. In recent  years, stink bug populations have exploded in eastern and selected other states. When threatened by predators stink bugs excrete an offensive smelling liquid, generally compared to the smell of dirty feet.

Talstar Professional insecticide can be applied as a lawn or perimeter treatment, for prevention and control of stink bugs and more than 75 additional pests. A water-based product, Talstar Professional is non-irritating and does not leave unsightly residues or cause phytotoxicity.

“This recommendation  indicates pest professionals can use  an effective tool for use in the states currently battling high stink bug populations,” said Catherine Bernard, product manager professional pest segment for FMC Professional Solutions. “Pest and turf professionals are very familiar with Talstar Professional and can easily integrate it into their stink bug prevention and control programs.”
