As far as the Jokers go, I don't know about down in loosiana but in the other states we do just fine with Identifying our pests and using common sense as far as product preference and cost.
PSU, If you read my post I was I was refering specifically to ornamentals not turf because on the Allectus label there is a whole section on foliar sprays, drenches, soil injection etc. There is no reason as far as I know to be soil injecting Talstar. It's just unnecessary pollution. Same for most foliar spraying, one material or the other works fine by itself and adding the other is unnecessary.

Vic,

Just doing a quick look at the labels, looks like chinch bugs and cutworms are the two primary pests not controlled by Imid. that are controlled by Bifen.. Does that sound right?

Bifenthrin (Talstar) controls all of the surface-feeding lawn-damaging insects for me. Billbugs, chinches and aphids among others for example. The Imidacloprid (Merit) is what I rely on for subsurface lawn-damaging insect control.
