Is spraying along the baseboards inside considered a crack and crevice spray using Talstar P?

Answer:

Spraying the baseboards with Talstar P is not considered a crack and crevice spray.  Although pest control companies used to just go around the inside of a home and spray down the baseboards, it is not really considered acceptable practice any longer.  99% of all pests enter the home from the outside so the most important treatment of any home is the outside perimeter.  On the inside you should just hit the "hot spots" which are underneath and behind appliances, inside water heater closets, and in wall voids where pipes go into walls and cupboards behind toilets and under sinks. We actually have an instructional video that demonstrates how and where to spray around and inside your home.
