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.

Target Uses of Cy-Kick Aerosol
Cy-Kick Aerosol is designed for residential and commercial accounts where applications for crack and crevice, spot and void treatments are needed. 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.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Cyfluthrin 0.10%
Application Instructions for Cy-Kick Aerosol
Use with the supplied actuator and injection tubes or other aerosol equipment. Inject into cracks and crevices or void spaces where insects may be harboring, living and breeding.

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 August 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.

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.

Did the job for me!
By Jayson on August 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.

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!
Cy-Kick is Kick-A*s!
By Mark on September 13, 2013
Tenant with terrible housekeeping moved out and left a ton of roaches. This stuff applied with bait killed them all. Am going to make this our mainline of defense along with gel baits.
Cy-Kick Aerosol - 17.5 oz.

works very good on most ants but they would not take it back and kill the nest
July 29, 2013
I bought this to eliminate springtails on my window sills. It seems to be very temporary. It works for a few days at the most but that is more than anything else has worked. These things are apparently very difficult to get rid of.
July 21, 2013
I found that many Pest Control Companies use Cy Kick inside homes. They charge upwards of $100 per visit 4 times a year. I used it once in the Kitchen to stop the ants which it did, and I used it in the garage as well. Within 2 days we found 3 dead cockroaches on the garage floor. This stuff works well. I am extremely satisfied.

Gets the job done.I purchased it for pantry pest but anything else that was hiding it killed them on the spot. I didn't know I had ants and they tried to run but was stopped in their tracks. I love that it has the straw to spray directly in small cracks.

September 2, 2010 Asher asked:
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.
May 24, 2010 Cheryl asked:
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.
December 30, 2010 Darnell asked:
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.
May 7, 2010 Monica asked:
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.

Brian from Melbourne, Fl asked:
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.

QA small (~2MM) dark brown hard shelled bug, this time in brown rice.
This could be a duplicate of the same question from a few minutes ago. This pest has been a recurring problem over many years and across 4 states. We think we brought it in the first time in paprika. Control is difficult. We cleaned the area well, discarded any suspect packages of rice and pasta and sprayed with TALSTAR PRO at the ratio of 1 oz/gal. Is Talstar the correct product? How long should we wait before putting packaged food back into the area? What is this pest? Thank you
A There are very many pest this could be. It sounds like you are taking the necessary stepts needed, as for as, disgarding and cleaning items. Please email us at clear picture of the pest so that we can better assist you with a treatment plan. You can also contact us at 866-581-7378 as well.

Susan from Whitesburg, Ga asked:
QWhat is the difference between D-Force HPX and D-force? We are dealing with brown recluse.
The brown recluse are in a home that we just purchased. Of course the people that sold the house lied about it. We are using Delta dust in cracks, voids, and under switch plates. We are going to use that too blast the attic and crawl space. We have something else called demon that we are going to use as well. We were going to top it off with the aerosol, but need the kind that is encapsulated.

Please check out our Pantry Pest Kit This complete pantry pest kit includes six Pro-Pest Pheronet traps for catching pantry moths and beetles, plus a 17.5 oz. can of Cy-Kick Residual Aerosol with a crevice tool (straw) for spraying in cracks and crevices around shelves and walls to kill pantry pest larvae and harborage areas.

Samantha from Palm Beach, Fl asked:
QCan I use Cy-Kick Aerosol in my car for a spider infestation?
I have been seeing spiders crawling across my windshield/windows for over two years now. The last time I killed a relatively large one, the problem went away for about a week until I started seeing tiny webs again. Now, I'm seeing lots of baby spiders more often than not. Is this product safe to use in my car, and will it kill the spiders?
A Yes, you can use Cykick Aerosol to treat spiders. Please be sure to only treat cracks and crevices and to follow the product label closely.

Ginger from Phoenix, Arizona asked:
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
A You 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.

Dj from Jamestown, Wi asked:
QIt says not to apply Cy-Kick Aerosol on plastic, painted or varnished surfaces. Will it harm varnish or paint?
If there is any over spray when trying to apply behind baseboards will this affect any of the varnish or paint?
Cy-Kick Aerosol does contain petroleum distillates which can harm some of these surfaces. You should spot test the product on small inconspicuous areas to test for staining or damage. We also carry a couple of water-based aerosols that will not damage any surface that would not be damaged by water itself such as Talstar Aerosol or Fireback Bedbug and Insect Spray.

Debbie from Ramsey, Nj asked:
QIs this product effective for clothes moths?
I have a walk-in closet and have had many articles of clothing ruined by moths. If this product is effective for moths, how would I use it?
A Cykick aerosol can help control clothing moths if it is sprayed on infested areas. The most important part of clothes moth control is finding the source and thoroughly cleaning the item(s) or disposing of the item(s) all together. Failure to do so will lead to poor results. Clothes moth eggs generally hatch out within 10 days during warmer temperatures and two weeks or longer during colder temperatures. Spraying a second time will help kill the adults but unless the larva are targeted you may continue to need additional treatments. Please take a moment to read our article How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths to learn more about this pest.

Kieran from Abbotsford, British Columbia asked:
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.
A You 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.

Carol from Glenview, Illinois asked:
QHow long is Cy-Kick Aerosol effective when treating indoors for silverfish control?
I am using it in my house to kill silverfish. The bugs are basically in the bathroom and around the washer and dryer. I have found smaller amounts in other parts of the house. How often do I have to respray.
A You can apply Cy-Kick Aerosol in the listed areas every 30 days until the silverfish population has been eliminated. Be sure to review the product label for complete application instructions.
June 11, 2011 Clay asked:
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.
A 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.
