Thank you for the information on how to kill pill bugs and sow bugs. I also have a grub problem in my flowerbeds. Will the Talstar PL kill this pest too? I live in Prescott Arizona and would very much like one product to kill these three pests. Thank you for you reply.
Talstar granules are clearly labeled for use on sowbugs and pillbugs. We know they are effective on this pest as well. If you look at the label, you’ll see it doesn’t list grubs. That doesn’t mean it won’t work on them but quite frankly I don’t know if the active is strong enough to have the kind of impact you want.
I would say you could go a season trying to see if it will do the job but ideally you should apply some of the granules we have listed in our Grub Control article. They are clearly the best for them but I don’t think they’ll work well for the sow or pill bugs so as I see it, you’ll need to use both if you want to get control without a doubt.
