Q&A Home

Clay writes,

Any reason to use Cy-Kick and Mother Earth together?

I noticed that my erstwhile pest control service routinely used both Cy-Kick CS and Mother Earth at my home. Any ideas on why and how they might use both? The directions on Mother Earth label say that it can be rendered ineffective if contaminated with another insecticide, so I'm not sure how or why I should use this if I have the Cy-Kick CS. The only thing I can think of is crack and crevice, or perhaps in the shrubbery around the house. I already have both, so any ideas would be appreciated.


It is true that you would not want to put them in the same place, but they are both great products to use at the same time, just in different places.  The Cy-Kick CS should be applied around the outside perimeter to help keep pests out of the home.  MotherEarth dust should be used indoors in voids and hard to reach places such as underneath appliances, where pipes go into the walls under sinks and behind toilets, floor of the water heater closet, attic spaces, etc.  Dust is better for these areas because dust will last much longer than the spray, sometimes up to 8 months.  You should apply the Cy-Kick CS around the outside perimeter of the home every 2 to 3 months for best results.
