Which means you can help your customer return to their yards with complete peace of mind, sooner than you ever thought possible.

XTRA Protection

The broad spectrum control of new Talstar XTRA featuring Verge is labeled for use against over 75 lawn pests.  Get up to four months of reliable control of most ants (including fire ants) as well as chinch bugs, fleas, ticks, mole crickets, earwigs, crane flies and many other lawn pests.*

Zeta-cypermethrin: For XTRA Speed

With the addition of zeta-cypermethrin, a totally new active ingredient designed for accelerated knockdown and kill, Talstar XTRA featuring Verge delivers effective control at record-breaking speeds.

Research trials and field tests conducted by industry professionals have proven that with the addition of its powerful new active ingredient, Talstar XTRA eliminates fire ant colonies within 15 minutes!. If Talstar XTRA works this fast on fire ants, imagine  how fast it works on other surface-feeding pests. At these speeds, other products can’t even come close to the control of Talstar XTRA featuring Verge granule technology.

A Groundbreaking Granule

Exclusive to FMC, the highly-advanced Verge granule delivers exciting application benefits you can't get with other products.

  • Perfect Form: The Verge granule is uniform in size and shape for improved ballistics during application, resulting in a more consistent, dependable barrier of protection.
  • Rapid Release: Verge granules are clay-based and disintegrate at an extremely fast rate, fully dissolving into thousands of micro-particles in less than a minute after being watered in. This delivers the active ingredient where it’s needed. 
  • Better for the Applicator: While other granules produce an unpleasant, musty smell, Talstar XTRA on the Verge granule is odorless. What’s more, the Verge granule is proven to be virtually dust-free, for a substantial reduction of dust in the air, on the equipment and on an applicator’s clothing following treatment.

Speed and Residual When It Counts

While fire ants and other pests can be gone in as little as minutes, the residual protection of Talstar XTRA featuring Verge is proven to remain effective for at least four months. Now with Talstar XTRA, you can help restore their peace-of-mind sooner than ever, and help keep them feeling secure by using the most trusted brand in general pest control.

Application Flexibility

Talstar XTRA featuring Verge granule technology is approved for use on a wide variety of application sites, including residential lawns, institutional grounds, around buildings (public, commercial and industrial), parks, recreational areas and athletic fields. This comprehensive label makes Talstar XTRA an effective and versatile tool for a wide range of accounts.

Top-of-the-Line Control that’s Good For Your Bottom Line
Even with its advanced formulation, Talstar XTRA featuring Verge remains a cost-effective choice for all of your surface-feeding pest and turf accounts. In fact, you can treat approximately 11,000 square feet with every bag (when applied at the most common labeled use rate).
