What is a good pesticide for Florida?

I live in Florida and would like to know what is a very effective pestiside to use outside. I was also wondering what do the professionals use. So I can do my own pest control. Also we have these very tiny ants that you can barely, you need to get up very close to them and then you can see them crawling on the house. I don't know what they call them but we seem to have quite a bit of them in our area. very tiny tiny ants

Answer:

Our most popular general use product is called Talstar.  It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with including ants and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer.  It will last for 60 to 90 days outside in between treatments.  It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf eating pests.
