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. 16 oz.

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.

Target Uses of Cy-Kick CS
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.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Cyfluthrin 6.0%
Cy-Kick CS Application Instructions
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 ounce bottle treats 16,000-32,000 square feet and 120 ounces bottle treats 120,000 to 240,000 square feet (approximately 2.75-5.5 acres).
Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios for Cy-Kick CS
*0.5 fl. oz. (15 mL)/gal. of water – 0.05% - maintenance, prevention applications
*1.0 fl. oz. (30 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 2.0g of concentrate to 100g of bait matrix. See below for details.
Cy-Kick CS is for 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% (0.5 oz. or 1.0 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% (0.5 oz. or 1.0 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% (0.5 oz. or 1.0 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 July 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.

Works fairly quickly.
By Travis on May 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.

Only product that eliminated scorpions
By Roxanne on March 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.

Cy-Kick CS is fantastic on Arizona scorpions
By Keith on March 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 Randy on October 30, 2014
There are two cy-kick products- both will take care of the little critters. The only problem is the scorpions legs keep the micro-capsules from attaching to them. Solution: spray (I have river rock around my house) So spray the rock (drench it) and while wet, spray the cy-kick. It will flow around the rocks and hopefully either drip on them or they will scrape the underside of the rocks and presto - no more critters. I also use Permethrin SFR as a flushing agent.
By Anna on October 30, 2014
It works just like the stuff the exterminator uses, everything dies, and it is easy to apply and no fumes.
Great Product - Maybe too Effective
By Mike on October 11, 2014
The stink bugs die daily. I used Cy-kick with a moderate dosage and have only applied one application. Give it a few hours to a day and they start dropping like mad. On the downside the product kills more bugs than I would like. Many of them coming to the house as winter protection, but I mean it's killing pretty much killing ALL bug that come in contact with it: Cicadias, walking sticks, all beetles, lady bugs, etc., etc.. The other minor downside to it is that even this product still leaves a film on my windows. Mind you I am not complaining, I'd rather have dead stink bugs, but I specifically bought this product because it was labeled as one that would leave less residue on the windows. My sunroom alone has 18 windows.
By Larry on October 1, 2014
The cy kick was used one time and unlike my Bi-monthly pest control man which when He sprays the ants return after a week It's been three weeks since I used your product We have not seen any bugs at all. We are Extremely pleased. Thanks a lot
A total waste of money..A total rip-off Very desappointed
By Very on September 29, 2014
I click 1 star, because it doesn't allow me to let it blank, but this product is not worth even 1 star...First of all it does not kill any roach, spider or whatsoever, not counting it says will continue killing for over 90 days. I used more than the amount suggested on the bottle, meaning made it 4x stronger it was just like water for the roaches they continuing crawling over it. It has been past 3 weeks since I applied and reapplied the following week and nothing happened I still have roaches. Bought raid and combat and these since to be working better... I definitely don't recommend this product. A total rip-off. For what I paid more than 36 dollars, I could bought a great deal of reliable insecticide.

Easy to use and safe around our dog. Moved into our newly built house in Scottsdale, there are empty lots next to us, started to notice scorpions in our yard and then a few in the house. Sprayed Cykick around perimeter of house, haven't seen a scorpion since, come to think of it we haven't seen ant bugs in our yard or house. This stuff works!
Great So Far
By Steve on September 24, 2014
Have used this only once but have noticed A LOT of dead bugs of all types. Will know more as the cold weather sets in and the spiders try to come in and join us. Sprayed exterior and interior of house.

By Ray on September 16, 2014
I just finished up a remodel on a 24 year old horse property in Arizona that had been vacant for two years. The black widows had moved in to the garage areas and the horse barn had both widows and scorpions. Being wrapped up in the remodel project, I had little time to deal with the bugs. I put 5-7 drops of CyKick into an old Ortho bug spray bottle and just hit the door openings every other month. Dead! Only a few scorpions made it past the barrier and they were dead no more than a few feet into the building. This stuff is unbelievable. Ordering more and recommending it to all my local friends. Its great working out in the barn or garage and not seeing bugs anymore, especially the biting kind!

So Far So Good
By Arizona on September 16, 2014
Because of our scorpion issues this summer I had heard about Cy-Kick from our neighbor. He said that it was one of the few poisons that are supposed to actually work on scorpions. So I shopped around and DoMyOwnPestControl had the best prices. I ordered the smaller size, it arrived quickly. We are expecting heavy rains in a couple days, so I at least wanted to spray the main supports in our block wall where they hang out. I also sprayed by any doors, garage & other where they could enter. I did this yesterday evening, and tonight when I went out with the black light there was only one in the middle of the yard walking like a drunk scorpion with his tail flailing about. I have never seen them in the middle of the yard, always by the block wall or other structure, so I can only assume that it was from the Cy-kick. In addition to that I saw several other dead pests laying about this morning. Since you only need to use 1 -2 oz. per gallon I feel that this is a good deal, especially if it works. I have high hopes.

July 15, 2010 Ray asked:
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.
October 5, 2010 Derek asked:
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.
July 18, 2010 Julius asked:
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.
August 6, 2009 Xxx asked:
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.
April 25, 2010 Dan asked:
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.

Deb from Springhill Florida asked:
QWill Cy-Kick CS work if it rains shortly after applied?

Saint from Des Moines, Ia asked:
QWill Cy Kick CS help with cock roach infestation?
We recently moved in to a new home, and I never noticed how bad of a infestation there was. At night when we turn on the lights and they are every where. It's disgusting! We clean, but they still come out. Will this product be effective at eliminating them and preventing another outbreak? What will I need to spray inside and outside the house?
Yes, Cy-Kick CS is labeled for roaches. We would also recommend using an IGR (insect growth regulator). This will stop the roaches from reproducing. You will use between 0.5 to 1.0 fl. oz. per gallon of water. Gentrol IGR can be mixed in the same sprayer as the Cy-Kick CS. You will mix 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. This will work for up to 4 months. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
For longer prevention, we would recommend using Delta Dust inside the wall voids. You will do a couple of puffs per electrical outlet and light switch. This is waterproof and will last in the wall voids for up to 7 months. Make sure you are not using too much because the roaches will need to walk over it. This dries them out inside the wall voids.

Brad from Windermere, Fl asked:
QOutdoor use of Cykick CS
I live in Orlando FLORIDA, in the summer we pretty much get rain every afternoon. Does Cykick hold up to the rain in this environment? Also can you us a hose end sprayer to apply?
Cy-Kick CS is a fantastic product for outdoors and indoors. Cykick Cs is microencapsulated so it provides for a longer residual and better weather tolerance.

Jon from Ringling,ok asked:
I have found Cy Kick to kill most everything I wanted but I have never tried it on Fire Ants. Is it a good product for that? If not,what should I order?
A Cy Kick CS is labeled for fire ants however Extinguish Fire Ant Bait is our most popular ant bait. Applied as a broadcast application use 1.5-2 lbs. per acre and for ndividual mounds treatment, use 2-5 tablespoons. Keep in mind, Ants must be foraging for this to work. You should not apply this product in the late fall or winter of ants are not foraging...it will not work! Also, bait must remain dry. Do not apply if it is going to rain within 8 hours.

Hom from Slc , Ut asked:
QWhat is the best way to get away from cockroaches? Which might be the best product for it ?
I have been facing cockroaches problem in my house. I tried various pest control but still I could able to stay away from them . So what could be the best way to control it ?
A We have had exemplary performance out of the Roach kit 2. The Roach Control Kit #2 is perfect for roach control problems in homes and apartments. This professional kit includes 1 packet of Demon WP Insecticide (which makes 4 gallons of finished solution) for spraying the outside perimeter of the home and inside underneath appliances, behind cabinets, under toilets and sinks, etc. You'll also get 4 x 35 gram tubes of Invict Gold Roach Bait Gel--one of the best roach baits on the market. Invict Gold can be applied up high in the kitchen in the corner of cabinets and in cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms. The bait contains a slow-acting poison that attracts and kills feeding roaches, who also spread the bait to other roaches by contact or by sharing food. Finally, 20 Gentrol Point Source stations provide an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that will stop roaches from laying eggs, helping to halt the infestation. The combination of an IGR with roach bait is a highly effective roach control strategy that is widely used by pest control professionals. Demon WP must be applied with a 1 gallon pump sprayer, like the Chapin 1 gallon sprayer.

Tobby from Murrieta Ca. asked:
QDoes Cy Kick CS kill roaches on contact?
No,Cy-Kick CS does not kill roaches on contact. It is a residual product and kills over time. The residual is up to 30 days outdoors and 90 days indoors. If you are looking for a contact kill, we would recommend using 565 PLUS XLO. This does not have a residual so once the product is dry, it is no longer working. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Norm from Lehigh Acres, Fl asked:
QCan Cy-Kick CS be used on small fruit trees (no fruit)?
A Cy-Kick CS is not labeled to be used on any fruit trees at all no matter the timing. We do carry another product called Bayer Advanced Vegetable and Fruit Spray which contains the same active ingredient Cyfluthrin but in a different formulation which allows it to be used on edible vegetation.
