Delta-gard or crosscheck for tics?

Anyone doing granular broadcasts for tick control? I used Delta-gard (deltamethrin) on my property, but the Lesco guys are telling me that bifenthrin (crosscheck/talstar)is a better product, delta-gard is an older chemistry. I liked deltamethrin because it takes less of the product to use. What's better? They need the woodline treated at a Town field for deer ticks, plus I need to treat my property again in a couple of weeks.

i have been using talstar granular for this, this year i am using crosscheck granular
with is labeled identical to the talstar product, if you want to use less product
consider talstar EZ granular, it has higher AI

Andersons insecticide is the same thing as cross check and we buy that for $27/50lbs. Great product.
