The XTS is the highly concetrated oil based product that is mainly used by the structural guys as a perimiter and crack and crevice treatment. The IT is the less concentraited water based product used more by us turf and ornimental guys.

This is just my opinion, but unless you are doing a broadcast treatment and then drenching the mounds with the granular Talstar you are wasting your money. If you are doing only mound treaments I think you would be much better off using a bait [not applied to the mound but a few feat away].
