Cy-kick CS liquid concentrate insecticide provides 90 days of full-throttle killing power, controlling insects indoors and outdoors. With a broad spectrum label including spiders, ants, mosquitoes, bees, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, flies, bed bugs, silverfish, ticks, wasps, wood infesting borers and more, you don’t have to pick and choose between different insecticides for different pests. Cy-Kick CS works great against every insect you’re up against, so one product and one application is all you need. Simply mix 1 to 2 oz Cy-kick CS per gallon of water and apply using a small commercial sprayer or foamer. Spray liberally indoors along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and wall voids. Cy-Kick is also used as an outdoor perimeter or lawn treatment. The density of Cy-Kick CS is similar to water, resulting in an even, consistent mixture that requires little agitation to remain in full suspension. When sprayed, Cy-Kick CS creates a thick barrier of microcapsules that is impossible for insects to cross without being exposed to a lethal dose of insecticide. Exposed insects pick up microcapsules on their hairs and body triggering a rapid release of the active ingredient, resulting in death. Cy-kick CS is virtually odorless, and will not create a visible residue or stain when used according to the recommended label rate.

How Cy-Kick CS Works
The active ingredient in Cy-Kick CS is Cyfluthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid that attacks the central nervous system of target pests. Made to mimic the effects on insects of naturally occurring pyrethrum, man-made cyfluthrin has the advantage of remaining effective for up to 3 months. SmartCap Technology means Cy-Kick CS stands up to porous and highly absorbent surfaces such as concrete, while the polymer shell protects the active ingredient making it readily available to pests. When sprayed, Cy-Kick CS creates a thick barrier of microcapsules that is impossible for insects to cross without being exposed to a lethal dose of insecticide. Exposed insects pick up microcapsules on their hairs and body, triggering a rapid release of the active ingredient, resulting in death. Though Cy-Kick CS is tough on insects, it is very gentle on people and pets when used correctly.

Cy-Kick CS is an ideal broad-spectrum insecticide for prevention, maintenance, or active infestations of over 55 common structural pests in residential and commercial applications. SmartCap Technology makes Cy-Kick CS ideal for a variety of surfaces, including porous and highly absorbent areas like concrete and mulch. SmartCap microencapsulation also increase the residual life of Cy-Kick CS to up to 90 days, making it ideal for quarterly pest control treatments. Because Cy-Kick CS is a microencapsulated suspension, it is more resilient in direct sunlight and more easily picked up by tough pests such as cockroaches, scorpions, and mosquitoes.
Cy-Kick CS can be used inside as a crack and crevice treatment or outside as a perimeter treatment for listed pests, for localized treatment of wood-destroying insects, for outdoor mosquito control, and for yellow jacket baiting outdoors. See below for further details. Always read the product label completely before use.
Mixing instructions - Thoroughly clean spray equipment before using Cy-Kick CS. Shake concentrate well before diluting. When diluting, first add approximately one-half of the water to the spray tank and then add the proper amount of Cy-Kick CS. When emptying the bottles, triple rinse with water, shake well and add the rinsate to the spray tank. Add the rest of the water and agitate the sprayer thoroughly. Agitate sprayer occasionally during use to ensure even mixture. Shake or re-agitate sprayer if spraying is interrupted or if dilution is left in sprayer overnight. If spray screens are used, they should be 50 mesh or larger. See video above for handheld sprayer application.
Void/Crack and Crevice Application - To treat insects harbored in voids and in cracks and crevices, apply with equipment designed for void applications. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for proper equipment set up and operating pressures. Place the tip of the applicator at or into the crack or crevice to be treated. Apply product in short bursts while keeping tip in position. Allow the air stream to push insecticide deep into voids. Application should be made in such a manner to limit dripping and run-off on structural surfaces and plants.
- 16 ounce bottle yields 8-16 gallons of finished solution for standard application rates.
- 120 ounce bottle yields 60-120 gallons of finished solution.
- 1 gallon of finished solution covers approximately 1,000 square feet.
- For higher volume outdoor applications, a 16 oz. bottle treats 16,000 to 32,000 sq. ft. and 120 oz. bottle treats 120,000 to 240,000 sq. ft. (approximately 2.75 - 5.5 acres).
Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios
- 1.0 fl. oz. (30 ml) gal. of water – 0.05% - maintenance, prevention applications
- 2.0 fl. oz. (60 ml) gal. of water – 0.10% - clean-out applications, longer residual control, or high insect infestations
- For outdoor perimeter treatments, use 0.5-1.0 fl. oz/1,000 square feet in sufficient water to adequately cover the area being treated. Alternate directions are to use 4-8 fl. oz/ 50 gal. of water. See product label for Suggested Mixing Chart for Larger Tank Sizes.
- For yellowjacket baiting outdoors, use 2.0 g of concentrate to 100 g of bait matrix. See below for details.
Use in the Following Areas:
Apartments, Calf Hutches, Calving Pens and Parlors, Campgrounds, Empty Chicken Houses, Dairy Areas, Dog Kennels, Food Storage Areas, Grain Mills, Granaries, Hog Barns, Homes, Horse Barns, Hospitals, Hotels, Meat Packing Plants, Food Processing Plants, Milkrooms, Motels, Nursing Homes, Rabbit Hutches, Resorts, Restaurants and other Food Handling Establishments, Schools, Supermarkets, Transportation Equipment (Buses, Boats, Ships, Trains, Trucks, Planes (do not use in airplane cabins)), Utilities, Warehouses, Commercial and Industrial Buildings; Federally inspected meat and poultry plants, Livestock Housing
Dilute Cy-Kick CS to 0.05% or 0.10% (1.0 oz. or 2.0 oz) with water using the spray dilution chart. Cy-Kick CS should be used as a Crack & Crevice residual product where insects may be hiding, living and breeding and/or for selected spot application. When using in food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments, restaurants or other areas where food/feed is commercially prepared or processed, refer to the section entitled “Food/Feed Areas of Food Handling Establishments” on product label for use directions. Non-food/feed areas are areas such as garbage rooms, restrooms, floor drains (to sewers), entries and vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, garages, mop closets and storage (after canning or bottling).
Bed Bugs – Apply to cracks and crevices where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, box springs, inside empty dressers and clothes closets, carpet edges, high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use this product on mattresses, pillows, bed linens or clothes. Remove all clothes and other articles from dressers or clothes closets before application. Allow all treated areas to dry thoroughly before use. Not recommended for use as sole protection against bed bugs.
- Do not apply more than twice per week. Treatments must be at least 3 days apart.
- Cy-Kick CS may be converted to a foam and the foam used to treat structural voids to control insect and arthropod pests in walls, under slabs or in other void areas. Apply as a dry foam (approx. 25:1).
Cy-Kick CS can be used as a residual treatment on outdoor surfaces and/or as a crack, crevice and void treatment of buildings, porches, window frames, leaves, patios, garages, garbage dumps and other areas where pests congregate or enter premises. Repeat treatment as necessary to maintain effectiveness, but not more than twice per week. Treatments must be at least 3 days apart. Use the 0.05% or 0.10% (1.0 oz. or 2.0 oz) rate. Cy-Kick CS can be used as a residual treatment to control pests in outdoor void areas such as meter boxes and manholes. Repeat treatment as necessary, but not more than twice per week. Treatments must be at least 3 days apart. Use the 0.05% or 0.10% (1.0 oz. or 2.0 oz) rate.
Perimeter Treatment - To help prevent infestations of buildings, treat a band of soil 6 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to the building. Also treat the building foundation to a height of 2 to 3 feet where pests are active and may find entrance. Treat other insect entry points such as doors, windows, under siding and eaves of structure. Cy-Kick CS may be applied in compressed air, backpack or power spray equipment. An application rate of 0.5 to 1.0 fluid ounce of Cy-Kick CS per 1000 sq. ft. is desirable. Apply in sufficient water to adequately cover the area being treated. Application should be made in such a manner to limit dripping and run-off on structural surfaces and plants. Alternate directions are to use 4 to 8 fl. oz. of product per 50 gallons of water.
Mosquitos – Use handheld, backpack, or truck mounted sprayers only. Use up to 150 gallons of diluted spray per acre. Treat shrubbery, vegetation and other areas where mosquitoes may rest. Shrubbery and vegetation around stagnant pools, marshy areas, ponds, and shorelines may be treated if applied as a wet spray.
Fleas – Treat infested areas. This product will kill fleas on contact but does not provide residual control.
Yellow Jacket Control Outdoors – Add 2.0g of concentrate to 100g of bait matrix and mix thoroughly (approximately ¼ tsp of concentrate per 3.75 oz. of bait) per dispenser. Mix only enough bait for immediate use. Hang dispensers in a sunny location, from a tree limb or other suitable support around the periphery of the area to be protected and at heights inaccessible to children and pets. Use 3-4 dispensers/acre or place them about 100 ft apart. Replenish dispensers with fresh bait as long as yellowjackets are present. Unused baits will probably be unattractive to yellowjackets after a few days, especially if temperatures are above 90 degrees F. See product label for more details on baiting suggestions and how to make and mark dispensers. See also our Alpine Yellow Jacket Bait Station Kit with Onslaught.

Takes care of all my insect problems
By Howell on 07/22/2008
I have used Cy-Kick CS for years. I never hire pest control services. This solutions takes care of all my insect problems. I use it in my house, the outside area my house, the porches and deck areas, and in my shop. However, try to spray AFTER a rain spell (on your outside area). Spray the lower edge of your house, around weep holes, around doors and windows. I use it every two to three months, or after lengthy rain spells. Spray inside your house under and behind couches, beds, other furniture, under sinks, etc. My pets have never been harmed by this product.

Only product that eliminated scorpions
By Roxanne in Phoenix, AZ on 03/14/2010
Arizona resident - with mature date palms next door - need I say more? After stuggling with an interior scorpion problem for two years, I purchased the first pint of Cy-Kick and began spraying systematically on the first of each month. This was after hiring a monthly pest service for about a year - they would come on the first and I would begin to see live scorpions inside around the 15th so would spray in between visits. The service was using a weaker solution for interior and Cy-Kick for exterior. Taking the task on my own, I begin with spraying interior with Cy-Kick for first two months, and exterior every month. Now I only spray interior once a year and exterior every month. Haven't seen a scorpion inside for a year!!! Pest control experts will say spray doesn't touch scorpions - I beg to differ. Cy-Kick is the only way to go.

Works fairly quickly.
By Travis on 05/23/2007
I am mainly trying to kill and get rid of scorpions. I have used this product in the past and killed them fairly quickly as well as other bugs around the house. With the Cy-Kick CS I did not hear crickets and saw a lot of dead roaches.

I applied some Cy-Kick CS directly on a scorpion while I was treating my house. That sucker was dead in about 3 minutes. So far I haven't seen any in my house.

Cy-Kick CS is fantastic on Arizona scorpions
By Keith in Gilbert, Arizona on 03/21/2010
I started using Cy-Kick CS after moving into a home infested with scorpions. After using this product for two months (2oz per gallon), spraying exterior of house and perimeter fence, scorpions have disappeared. I only have to spray once a month. Well worth the money if you have ever been stung.
By Roger in Mesa Az on 05/22/2016
If you want to eliminate scorpions , and all other pests in your back or front yard this is the item, in three days no more scorpions or ants, guaranteed. Thanks Do my own !
Kills em' dead!
By Clark in Goodyear, AZ on 05/21/2016
This product works exactly as advertised, killing unwanted pests quickly...even scorpions! And, maybe best of all is the fact that there's virtually no odor; and after it dries, it's pet and child safe. Each bottle of concentrate is enough to last the average homeowner at least a year, and probably longer, depending on the strength of spray desired.

By Bt in Chattanooga TN on 05/19/2016
Used this for carpenter bees on a wooden front porch. There were literally hundreds of them and daily piles of sawdust. I Basically have done three doses saturating the underside of my porch and railings. Each successive application resulted in fewer bees. After the third application all the bees are gone (dead). This is good insecticide.
Cy-Kick and its Seller
By Larry in Logan, Utah on 05/16/2016
I have been using Cy-Kick for years. Have not yet used this batch. Around outside and inside of house it is an absolute barrier to insects, particularly spiders. I have never seen anything work so perfectly. Lasts for months. This was my first order through DoMyOwnPestControl.com. Lowest price anywhere by far, easy to order and delivered in timely and perfect condition. Who could ask for more?
By Debbie in Collins, Ohio 44826 on 05/01/2016
We sprayed the outside of our house and a little in the basement about 3 weeks ago and so far its working.

Works for me!
By George in Litchfield Park, AZ on 04/23/2016
My standby scorpion killer, Cyper WP, is no longer available, so this season I bought CY-Kick. Our area has a terrible scorpion problem so I was hoping for the best. I spray the block fences, the desert landscape creek beds and a 10 foot barrier around the house. So far, I have found 3 live scorpions in a hot spot in the back yard. The house next door has been vacant and for sale for over a year. Since the hot spot is on that side, I have taken to patrolling its front yard at night with my black light - and have killed 56 of the little curly tailed critters. And that's just what I have found in the front yard. 56 vs 3? I guess the Cy-Kick is doing its job.

works for me!
By Paul in Anthem AZ on 04/21/2016
I found this product through a friend who is a professional pest control person in Arizona. After battling the critters down for about 6 months now I spray the exterior potential entry points every 3 weeks (bark scorpion gestation period). Now, I very seldom ever see a scorpion and when I do it is dead. Great stuff Cy Kick. Works on anything and after it dries is safe around pets and little kids. Do Your Own Pest Control sold it to me for a great price and delivery was quick!
this stuff works
By Maxie in GA on 04/16/2016
We started using this several years ago and it is the best we have ever used. It really kills the bugs. I spray once a year. I recommend this to everyone I meet that has a roach problem. If you have bird feeders, go outside with a flashlight after it has been dark about three hours and shine around the feeders....we could not believe what we saw the first time...hundreds of roaches...now there are none..I spray around the pole at the bottom that the bird feeder is mounted on. This is the best price I have found on Cy-Kick.

Good for Powderpost Beetles
By Daniel in Little Rock, AR on 04/13/2016
Well, maybe not so good for them, since it kills them! Had some pine cut back in 1950s, and stored in a shed. Infested with powder post beetles. Some wood still good enough to use for furniture. I sprayed each board individually and re-stacked. Haven't been seeing new activity, but I always re-treat after cutting and planing just to be sure. Also use on house to prevent termites, roaches, spiders, etc. I use twice a year and have been roach free.

By Paulicia in Cape Coral, Florida on 04/10/2016
I use to pay Orkin $77 every other month to treat my home. A friend of mine who use to work for them said, the chemical Orkin uses is Cy-Kick. I found this website and have been treating my home, myself for almost a year now with this product and I have no complaints. It works very well and I know when I use it, I don't water it down and put the appropriate amount as directed on the bottle. So, instead of spending $462 to have Orkin spray my home, it now only costs me about $100

Ask a Question
QDoes Cy Kick CS kill black widow spiders?
There are so many other products that state, "Kills spiders (excluding Black Widow and Brown Recluse)".
AYes, CY Kick CS will kill just about any spider that it is sprayed on. Spiders are very difficult to control however and most residual insecticides like Cy Kick CS will kill any spider that it is physically sprayed on, but new spiders entering the area are very difficult for any insecticide to control. This is because spiders bodies are high off of the ground and they do not groom their legs like other insects do. How these products mainly control spiders is that they kill the spiders food that is around, all of the other bugs, and if there is no food around, then the spiders will not want to be in that area anymore.
QWhat works better for killing scorpions, Demand CS or Cy Kick CS?
AThe Demand CS and Cy-Kick CS are very similar in performance for killing scorpions. Both products contain active ingredients that are synthetic pyrethroids and both products are micro-encapsulated. Cy-Kick CS is a bit more popular with customers that are trying to control scorpions.
QHow does Cy-kick CS compare with Talstar (bifen) products?
ACy-Kick CS and Talstar are both great products and are both very popular choices on our website. Other than them both being different active ingredients and killing insects in different ways, they are both very effective and can be used indoors and outdoors and they are both very safe. We would say that the main difference is that Cy-Kick CS is microencapsulated which means it will hold up a little better outdoors in UV light, probably about 3-4 weeks longer than Talstar. Either one would be a good choice and really just depends on personal preference.
QIs Cy-kick CS better than Bifen It?
What is the difference between Cy-Kick CS and Bifen IT?
AThe main difference is that the Cy-Kick CS is a microencapsulated suspension. Micro Encapsulation means that each droplet of insecticide is encased in a protective microscopic capsule, which provides a long residual even in direct sunlight. Micro cap also means the product can be more easily picked up by the tiny hairs on insects and especially flying insects. So, while both the Bifen IT and the Cy-Kick CS are great products there are some instances where Cy-Kick CS is a bit more effective such as spider and scorpion control and on outdoor surfaces that are exposed to the elements.
QCan I use Cy-Kick CS while my dog is in my house?
AYes, you can use Cy-Kick CS while the dog is in the house. When you mix this concentrate with water, it is only .06% active ingredient and only strong enough to kill small insects. It is a good idea to keep pets and children outside or in another room while treating and then allow about 30 minutes for the product to dry. Once dry, it is perfectly safe for children and pets to re-enter the living space. Of course you should always store the bottle of concentrate just like any other cleaning chemicals, out of reach of children and pets.

QWhat is the storage shelf life of Cy-Kick CS?
How long is the shelf life of an opened bottle of CY-Kick CS? I have an opened bottle that has been stored in a cool AZ garage all winter, will it still be effective this spring?
A The shelf life of Cy-Kick CS is between 3-5 years. Be sure to keep the product inside of a cool, dry place where it will not freeze or be exposed to direct sunlight.

QCan Cy-Kick CS be broadcast over 2000 sq ft desert (gravel) yard using a hose end sprayer?
A Yes, Cy-Kick CS can be applied in a hose end sprayer for application on gravel. It can be applied to the exterior listed areas on the product label once a month on the exterior of the structure. Also, you would want to spray the exterior wall of your house, spraying 2 to 3 feet up the side of the house, and 2 to 3 feet out on the ground to prevent insects from invading your home. Cy-Kick CS is a great choice for many insects that offers a great kill and residual. It will particulay good for scorpions also. It is mixed at 1-2 oz per gallon per 1,000 sq ft.

QCan I spray Cy-Kick CS outside for mosquito control on shrubs, plants, etc?
A Yes, Cy-Kick CS can be used outdoors for mosquito control. It is recommended that you treat the grass and shrubs where the mosquitoes are. Please see our Mosquito Treatment Guide for more tips and information on treating this pest.

QWill Cy-kick leech down and diminish the effect of Termidor in my trench treatment for termite protection?
I have trenched out and applied Termidor. However, I would like to also have a perimeter protection above ground for various crawlies that seem to occasionally find their way in. If I spray up and out the recommended 1-foot (gravel landscaping) will the Cy-Kick seep down (maybe after a rain) an in to my soil, thus negating the non-repellent affect of my termidor? If this is my goal, would Cy-kick be any better or worse than Talstar? - Phoenix heat.
A As long as you have given at least 24-48 hours of dry time for the Termidor after it has been applied to the soil, watering/rain and other general pest control applications around the foundation will not affect the termidor barrier under the soil. Cy-Kick would be the better option over Talstar in your region and will give a little better coverage.

QIs Cy-Kick CS a repellent?
A Cy-Kick CS is not a repellent. It is a liquid concentrate insecticide that requires the insect to come into direct contact with the treated areas to be eradicated. It offers a residual that will continue to kill the listed insects for 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors.

Q Will vacuuming or mopping the floor clean away the residue of Cy-Kick CS?
I spray Cy-kick CS indoors around the baseboard in my home which is mainly hardwood and tile flooring.
A You should vacuum and mop prior to the application of Cy-Kick CS to the cracks and crevices. You can vacuum without retreating with the product. It has a 90 day indoor residual so if you mop the area, you will need to reapply.

QMy neighbor has mosquite squad. They have sprayed with Cy-Kick & Bifen.
My vegetable garden is separated from their property by a chain link fence. Any problem with eating produce from the garden? If so, how long after spraying is it safe?? Thanks.
A Cy kick and Bifen cannot be appled to edibles. We would be concerned if there could have beed drifting over the fence onto the veggies. Was it windy when applied? If not, or you do not think drifiting occured there should be no issue consuming veggies.

QPest Maintenance for Phoenix AZ block home?
I would like to cancel my pest control service and DIY. I don't have any issues with bugs/pests and would like to keep it that way. What would the recommended method and product(s) be to continue to maintain what's currently working and save the cost of hiring professionals?
A Our number one recommended product for customers in the Arizona area is Cy kick CS. Cy-Kick CS creates a thick barrier of microcapsules that is impossible for insects to cross without being exposed to a lethal dose of insecticide.
