What is the difference between Talstar PL and Talstar XTRA?

I've treated the perimeter of my home with Talstar PL every year (great results) and when I got ready to order a replacement bag, I spotted the Talstar XTRA. Looks like it could be better for ant treatment out in the lawn. Is Talstar EXTRA as good as Talstar PL for perimeter treatment? Could I use one of the Talstar treatments for both perimeter use and ant control in the yard?


Talstar Xtra contains Bifenthrin plus Zeta-Cypermethrin.  The granular size is different as well. The Talstar PL is more sandy like. Both great granulars!
