which is better Talstar one or Phantom insecticide/termiticide ?

What is best active ingredient for controlling insects and pests.there are so many solutions but what can I count on to handle any insect or pest of any sort. Also I have these small ants I call sugar ants that are so small and are being stubborn to get rid off in my kitchen sink and also what ant bait tubes are best. I am fixing to place my order and I am stuck on what is the best product to purchase

Answer:

Using Talstar P outside the perimter of home will give you protection for over 75 types of insects. Talstar P is able to be used inside and outside the home. It will give you a 30 day residual outside and 90 day residual on the inside of the home (crack and crevice treatment). Outside you may use as a perimeter spray (3ft up and 3ft out around the structure) or as a broadcast over your entire lawn to treat for ants, fleas, mosquitoes, ticks, etc. 

Using the Complete Ant Kit inside the home for ant control will provide you the results you want. This kit offers both a sugar bait and a protein bait for the ants as well as stations to put the bait into. This is important b/c ants will change their food prefrence every 3-4 months.
