I have treated outside with Maxxthor granules and Maxxthor EC within the past two weeks. I do not have any more Maxxthor granules.
I have Demand G granules and Onslaught concentrate. Since I have the Demand granules, I was going to apply those after 30 days have passed from my Maxxthor granules. Should I continue to use the Maxxthor EC spray with Demand granules, or switch to the Onslaught spray?
In general, what types of insecticides cannot be used together? For instance, can repellant and non-repellants be used together? Can first and second generation pyrethroids be used together?
Also am using diatomaceous earth and some Delta Dust in window sills, crevices, and around plumbing pipes.

Springtails require regular treatments using a wet spray insecticide. It really doesn't matter what you use, repellent or non-repellent. The repellent any generation pyerthroids work. First, second or third generation in most cases means the price gets higher and the formulation different in most cases.
The trick to controlling springtails is to treat the lawn regularly. They originate outdoors and this is where controlling them starts.
The Ensystex products you refer to we do not carry. They are specific to Ensystex.
DE and Delta Dust are not recommended anywhere but inside of cracks, crevices, plumbing voids inside walls, etc. However this is usually not where springtails are found.
Repellent pesticides are not recommended to be used with non-repellents because they would work against each other. Use one or the other exclusively. Why would you want to repel something you are trying to attract? It's sort of that principle.
Onslaught FC is a great product, it might be a little expensive to treat the yard with on a regular basis. Bifenthrin XTS or IT are great products. Tengard or Permethin SFR are recommended due to low cost.
Most of all spray the lawn routinely - every 2-3 weeks during hot summer season for best control of springtails.
