Bifenthrin is unique to the pyrethroid class. It’s superior chemical structure gives Talstar a three– characteristic combination no other pyrethroid can claim: 1) longest residual, 2) less likely to cause skin and throat irritation, and 3) miticidal activity. The biphenyl structure confers strength so it doesn’t break down as quickly in ultraviolet light and gives Talstar the longest residual of any pyrethroid. With no alpha-cyano group, Talstar is less likely to cause skin irritation and does not cause any throat irritation. And the tri-fluoro group provides miticidal control to Talstar. The benefits from these characteristics – Talstar is easy on you, easy on plants, and it is tough on pests.
With its water based formulation, Talstar® doesn’t have the odor problems of the solvent-based organophosphates and carbamates, so it’s easier on applicators. Plus, it won’t harm lawns and ornamentals. Homeowners will appreciate that Talstar® leaves no odor or residue after treatment
