they reproduce very fast so normally you would have to do more than one app

Regular apps are necessary to nmake sure you stay (mostly) tick free. And yes, it will only kill the ones in ther yard. i trat my yard and my dauhter brought one home last week from my sister's place. We think she might have Lymes disease. Taking her to the doctor tomorrow. Not even 2 years old yet...

Just in case anyone who lives near ticks doesn't know. there is a shot that you can get that will prevent you from getting lymes if you do get bitten. It only works before though, not if you already have it. Good insurance for people in our line of work.

It used to be a 3 shot treatment, not sure if it has changed. The first shot made me feel like crap so I decided not to have the last 2. A better insurance for me is to have DEET in the truck at all times in case you need to go for a walk in the brush.

I do know a lot of people that have had it, it is getting bad.

Is Talstar harmful to pets? What kind of precautions should we take?

Well said you are correct, But if you sell them a fire ant treatment you can use top choice and it will also give the best control for fleas and ticks.
