    Have you tried Allectus G? You can get a label at the Bayer web site.

    allectus has talstar in it, I think he is trying to avoid incurring resistance.
    Permethrin is a good alt.

    Better to rotate to a non-pyrithroid product since they have a similar chemical mode of action. A carbamate like Sevin might be better.

    Also check out new Arena insecticide a nicotine-based product--similar to Merit, but better.
