CyKick Aerosol is a Crack & Crevice Residual insecticide that offers a fast knockdown of insect pests. Cy-Kick "residual" means that the aerosol leaves a film that keeps on killing for weeks. The aerosol formulation of Cy-Kick is designed for residential and commercial applications where crack and crevice, spot and void treatments are needed. The low odor formulation of Cy-Kick Aerosol makes it a perfect application choice for indoor residential treatment sites, food handling and sensitive areas. Cy-Kick Aerosol is labeled for many common pests typically found in and around structures, including spiders, bed bugs, ants, roaches, beetles, centipedes, millipedes, scorpions, earwigs, boxelder bugs, silverfish, pantry pests, and more.
Both Cy-Kick Aerosol and Cy-Kick CS Aerosol contain the same amount of Cyfluthrin, however the CS Aerosol formulation has more of a foaming effect and has different labeling due to the micro-encapsulated formulation. Be sure to read the product labels to determine which product is best for your application needs.

How Cy-Kick Aerosol Works
Cy-Kick Aerosol is a ready-to-use pressurized insecticide with the active ingredient Cyfluthrin. Cyfluthrin is a synthetic pyrethroid made to mimic the effects on insects of naturally occurring pyrethrins, which are derived from the Chrysanthemum flower. Cyfluthrin attacks the central nervous system of target pests that come into contact with the direct spray or dried residual of Cy-Kick Aerosol.

The effective control of Cy-Kick Aerosol can be utilized in sensitive environments such as restaurants, office buildings, nursing homes, hotels, in public areas and for perimeter treatments where drift may be a concern. This ready-to-use aerosol product is a convenience that everyone with time constraints can appreciate. Spot and localized perimeter applications can be treated quickly, reducing the need for expensive application equipment and eliminating mix and measure products. Residual lasts for up to six weeks.
Cy-Kick Aerosol is an easy-to-use treatment for control of many common pests, including ants, roaches, silverfish, boxelder bugs, carpenter bees, millipedes, scorpions, spiders, wood wasps, and spot treatments of wood-destroying pests. Plus, Cy-Kick Aerosol can be use in food and non-food areas of food-handling establishments and on modes of transport. Do not use Cy-Kick Aerosol on plants or on sensitive surfaces that have been varnished or painted.
Both Cy-Kick Aerosol and Cy-Kick CS Aerosol contain the same active ingredient, however Cy-Kick CS Aerosol will have more of a foaming action and is labeled for different applications. For example, only Cy-Kick Aerosol is labeled for wood-destroying pests.

Wood Destroying Insects Indoors and Outdoors: Cy-Kick Aerosol can be used to treat localized areas for wood-infesting insects such as beetles and borers, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, termites and wood wasps. Locate suspected infestation and/or insect tunnels and cavities. Drill pilot holes into insect tunnels, galleries and inaccessible closed voids. Drill holes 8-10” apart to ensure thorough coverage. Inject 5-10 seconds per hole. This treatment is for localized termite infestations only, to kill workers or winged reproductive forms which may be present in the treated channels at the time of treatment.

The best stuff ever!
By Mark on 08/26/2009
Last year I had to get let go of my pest control company because they would only show up when nobody was home and thus the inside of my house would never get inspected or serviced. I found out that my company's pest control service uses Cy-Kick Aerosol in our workplace. I bought it from DoMyOwnPestControl.com (thank goodness that they sold it, since I could not find it anywhere else). This product works great. It takes me less than 45 minutes to perform my own inside service and my results are better than when I used a pest control company!

Had pantry moth infestation for almost a year now and cleaned out my pantry twice. Finally bought the traps and this aerosol and followed the directions and I have only seen and killed 3 moths. My trap had none. What I love is that the spray with the long nozzle is very powerful and very accurate so it was very easy for a short person to spray even where I couldn't reach. No odor noticed and I don't know if I did a great job cleaning up or if this spray did its job BUT this is a MUST buy after if you want to stop the cycle.

Did the job for me!
By Jayson on 08/16/2008
National pest control company used this product to kill spiders outside. I have tons of spiders around the doors. I would walk out the door and walk though spider webs. 30 mins later the webs would be rebuilt and I would walk through them again. Spiders were bad, but Cy-Kick aerosol did the job. Not one spider has been seen since. I decided to DoMyOwnPestControl and ordered this product. Spider free for now! The residual effects of this product is excellent.

Good stuff, I had a problem with American roaches when I first bought my house. I use Cy-Kick Aerosol around base boards, in door jams, around windows, and in the corners of my garage. Great for keeping out most crawling insects. Not too effective at killing wolf spiders though. I sprayed it directly on a large wolf spider I found in my house and it only slowed it down, didn't kill it.

After using Cy-Kick once along the cracks and pipe openings under the sink and spraying under the fridge, there is not one survivor in the Cockroach community that plagued me this summer. It seems they were affected immediately upon reaching the sprayed areas - I had only to sweep them into a dustpan and drop them in the trash. After one week, no more roaches!

I use Cy-Kick aerosol all year with emphasis on spring and summer. I use it indoors and in areas in my garage that are "hard to reach." This spray is highly effective against scorpions and many other insects; sprays powerfully and at a decent distance from the aersol can; and comes with the narrow plastic attachment that allows for a very focussed power spray into nooks and crannies. I highly recommend this spray and it is well worth purchasing a case or two to get the price down to a little over $10 per can.

By Mc in maryland on 08/03/2011
I used CY-Kick for roaches in my kitchen. This the best of all the product i had used. The first week i saw a big difference, i could see just a few roaches in some areas, and on the second week i see just one or two some days. I will need to do the second treatment which i belief will clear off any left. I so far had used it once and still have alot left in the canister.

works well but alittle greasy
By Dave in N. Versailles Pa on 07/01/2011
Does the job but a little sloppy after application. I used a folded paper towel later to clean up the residue. It murdered the little s o b's that is all I care about.

Do it like the pros...for less!!
By R in Greensboro, North Carolina on 05/04/2011
For years, I was on a yearly pest control plan with a local (and well-known) pest control company. The cost for the plan was much higher than the cost of this product. To be fair though, I realize that many people would rather "leave it to the pros" and that's fine, but if you're on a budget, this is definitely the way to go.

Had a friend give me a can of cy-kick to get rid of termites & other critters. Worked really well. Then I bought two cans from 'do my own pest control' & already used one can and starting on the second. All my bugs went to my neighbors house's cause my house is bug free.

Cy-Kick Aerosol is superb. I have not seen a better product to control crawling insects, and the residual effect (even outside) is quite outstanding.
Have a question about this product?

Ask a Question
QIs Cy Kick Aerosol safe to use next to pregnant women and infants?
AWhen used according to the product label, Cy-Kick aerosol is safe to use around infants and pregnant women. It is important that everyone is out of the area during the application. Everyone is free to return to the treated area as soon as it is dry.
QCan this Cy Kick Aerosol be used indoors around small pets?
I have a small dog and will take her to a neighbors house when i spray but will it be safe for her after the product has dried for an hour or two?
AYes. Cy-Kick Aerosol can be used in a house where animals live, the animals just need to be out of the area that is being treated, and they can return as soon as the treated area is dry.

QWhat product or procedures will get rid of bugs in my rice and pasta products?
I live in Florida and have a have a food storage pantry that I have typically stored rice, spaghetti, lasagne, and noodles in. I discovered bugs in my rice a few months ago, and soon found the same bugs in all my pasta products. I threw everything out, bought new products, and the bugs were back in everthing within days. I have since used or thrown products out again, and am buying in small quantities only and using product quickly, but still have the bugs from time to time. I can't get rid of them and they must be still in some products. I am worried that they could find their way through the house to my kitchen pantry. I use Taslstar P on a regular basis for my home protection, but obviously don't spray my shelves and food, only the baseboards. I need some suggestions on what to do or use to get rid of these bugs.
AFor pantry beetles or weevils you should remove everything from the cabinet, inspect every item, discard anything that is infested. Next you should thoroughly vacuum all cracks in the cabinet. Last, you can apply a product such as Cy-Kick Aerosol to all of cracks and crevices in the cabinet to help kill any hidden pupa as they emerge so that they cannot continue to re-infest products. After the cabinet has completely dried you can put food products back in the cabinet.
QIs Cy-Kick aerosol safe to use in a child's room?
Roaches seem to hide between the bed and wall. This is where I like to spray. My kids are wild sleepers and they tend to let their blankets fall in that area. My question is, if the blanket does fall could the Cy-Kick harm my kids if they then use the blanket? Is Cy-Kick safe once it is dry?
AFirst, you may want to consider thoroughly cleaning the area where roaches tend to congregate in your childs room, especially if your child eats in there. Second, if you are using the Cy-Kick Aerosol properly (please read the product label) then it is only being applied to the cracks and crevices around the room, not out in the open on the floor. By applying the product as specified on the product label, you limit the contact your children can have with it. And yes, once the product is dry it is safe for the kids to be around.

QHow do I determine the manufacture date of BASF chemicals? What do all the numbers mean?
A BASF uses a unique set of numbers to match up that product, when it was made, what lot it was a part of and how many were in that lot. Below you will see an example of a Cy-Kick aerosol can and how it is broken down. The batch numbers can vary in location on BASF products from just above the label on a bottle, to the bottom of a container or can, as well as on the sides of case containers or†boxes. On the bottom of a can of Cy-Kick you will normally see a few sets of numbers appearing as follows: 59011782†15†111 203923930 28570 Starting with the first row. The first set of numbers normally starting in 59- ex: 59011782 is BASF's article number for the product. The second set- ex: 15, indicates the year in which the product was produced. For this can that would mean it was produced in the year 2015 The third set- ex: 111, indicates the numerical day of the year that the product was produced. So it was manufacturer on the 111th day of the year of 2015. This comes out to show it was produced on April 21st of 2015. The bottom row of numbers indicates the batch information. The first set- ex: 203923930, indicates the actual batch/lot number for the manufacturer. The second set- ex: 28570 indicates the container count of each batch.

QCan you recommend a good indoor aerosol that has residual. I recently quit Terminex and the technician used
to spray an aerosol that he said was safe for pets. I did not get a chance to read the label. The areas he sprayed either dried very fast or it was a dry spray.
ACy Kick Aerosol would be a great choice for you. It safe for pets to be around after the treated areas have dried. This will take about one hour.

QWhat to use for wide cracks across floor inside house?
Hi, i have very wide (1/8" - 1/4") cracks in the concrete inside my house. Once removing the carpet in the dining rm and den there are cracks from one side of the room to the other. We eventually will install Travertine over it. We have termites that came up from the crack and infested the cardboard around the Travertine tiles stacked up near it. We also have ants coming up the crack in the dining room and marching a very long line over to the cat food area. What can I use to spray in the cracks for ants and termites and what will happen once the tile is laid over the cracks? How do you get the aerosol product in the sections that the cracks are really small across the floor. We need a pet safe product. We bought Dominion to treat around the outside of the house but haven't dug the trench yet. I hope to do that this weekend before the 100 degree weather comes. (we are in Arizona) Thanks
AYou can actually use the dominion to treat the crack. You will need to use a hammer drill (can be rented from home improvement store) to drill through the concrete to get the product to the soil. You can than use concrete patch to cover the holes.

QCan you use this product in the kitchen pantry?
How long should you wait before putting food back in the pantry? I'm just concerned about food touching the product and ,asking our family and baby sick.
AYou can use the straw applicator that comes with the product to apply Cy-Kick aerosol directly to the cracks and crevices in side of cabinets. Do not apply Cy-Kick Aerosol to the shelf surface or as a broadcast spray in the cabinet. You should wait until the application is completely dry before placing food or dishes back into the cabinets.
QAny 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.
AIt 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.
QCan Cy-Kick be used around my baseboards and not just cracks and crevices?
ACy-Kick aerosol does have to be used in cracks and crevices. The label states that Cy Kick may used behind the baseboards and in cracks and crevices around the baseboards.
QWhat does the "CS" on Cy-Kick stand for?
I have a 20 oz aerosol can of Cy-Kick CS. When I search for that product it comes up with the concentrate that you have to mix. Also, I can't find it in 20oz cans online.
ACS stands for "capsulated suspension" or microencapsulated solution. Microencapsulated products last a little longer than the normal version but are really only beneficial when used outside in direct sunlight or an area where there may be a lot of moisture. The Cy-Kick CS version of the Cy-Kick aerosol that you are looking for is much more expensive. Since most people use this product indoors, we have chosen to only offer the Cy-Kick aerosol version instead of the Cy-Kick CS aerosol version. Both Cy-Kick aerosol and Cy-Kick CS aerosol have the same amount of active ingredient, Cyfluthrin .1%.
