Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide that also has a transfer effect and is especially useful for insects that are social or extra sensitive like ants, roaches or bedbugs. Talstar P on the other hand will have a faster knockdown rate and is a bit more versatile as it can be used in more areas and for a wider variety of insects. When trying to decide which insecticide to use you need to know: 1. What are you trying to eliminate? 2. What areas need to be treated? After you answer those questions, read the product labels to make sure the pest and the treatment area are both listed. If you still need help deciding you can call us at 866-581-7378.
