    I'm looking for a liquid insecticide to use on my lawn, shrubs, and to create a perimeter around my house. It was also be great to be safe enough to use inside around children and pets.

    read the label on talstar. It is a spot treatment and crack and crevice insecticide only.

    for indoor use that is. Cynoff is a good alternative for in and out and you can get it in wp or ec formulations.

    We like "Crosscheck" from LESCO. "Check" it out. LOL Fleas, ticks, mosquitos, gnats, springtails, ants, chiggers, clover mites, and many more.

    Americanlawn, thanks for your recommendation on Crosscheck on a previous post. I actually decided to go with the granuals and now regret not getting the liquid. Well I guess I'm going back to Lesco for the liquid version. Anyone know what their smallest size is and how much? I checked the website and the smallest size I saw was 96 oz for $130. If that's the case I'll need an alternative.

    I'll also check out Cynoff. Thanks!!!

    oh man, lesco has a way with pricing, you can probably get the 96 oz bottle much cheaper when you go in, right now i pay $88 for it, some pay less, some pay much more, they have many different levels of pricing from what i have seen and heard
