D-Fense SC (Suspend SC) vs Bifen IT (Talstar)

Do you guys have any opinions in comparing D-Fense SC (Suspend SC) vs Bifen IT (Talstar) for a generic spray insecticide? How is one better than the other? What are the pros/cons of each? Should I use both (one indoor vs one outdoor)? I have a family with young children living with me, so obviously they'd have to be safe. Looking for your opinions comparing the two.


Both the D-Fense SC and the Bifen IT contain synthetic pyrethroids for active ingredients and will provide very similar results. The only advantage to using Bifen IT is that it is known to be super gentle on most plants (do not use on edible vegetation). Both products can be used indoors and outdoors and both products are safe to use in houses with children and pets.
