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 in Phoenix, AZ 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 in Gilbert, Arizona 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.
works as stated !
By Chris in Owasso on April 18, 2015
used this product before and will use again i have a pest service and the tech that comes every 6-8 weeks says they use same product but i like to have some backup as we do have recluse, and many other unsavory characters , what the spray doesnt get the sticky pads do.

By Arne in Florence, AZ on April 1, 2015
We had a problem with scorpions inside the home and of all the products we tried, Cy-Kick is the only one that completely took care of the problem. We used it around the perimeter of the house, inside the garage, and inside the house and no more scorpions.

By Fred in Gilbert on March 20, 2015
As advised by my brother who researched on line the best pest control product I switched to Cy-Kick. I remain in shock how well this product works. Using it to fight scorpions, shortly after the first use I began to find dead scorpions still in tact. Previous products used had some effect, but not as effective as this product.
So Far So Good
By S.f. in Mesa, Arizona on March 16, 2015
Have only had this a few weeks and 2 applications and we've only seen 1 scorpion in the house. I happened upon one in an irrigation switch housing and took the opportunity to test the stuff on it. After a quick spritz and about 30 minutes later the little critter was dead. We'll see as things warm up here and more come out!

This product is amazing !
By Jean in Peoria, AZ on March 14, 2015
I've been using this product to get rid of the scorpions around my house and it worked perfectly and for many months. I used to hunt them at night with a black light, and some nights, I could kill as much as 8 scorpions. Now, I will kill 1 from time to time, but most of the time there is none ! Why pay a lot of money for professional treatment when you can do it yourself for a fraction of the price ! All that you need is a spray tank and some Cy-Kick CS !

By Brad in Shoals, Alabama on January 29, 2015
I ordered this stuff last year when I brought a piece of furniture into the house after purchasing at a yard sale. I soon found out that it was home to what we call in Alabama ...water bugs. They multiplied quickly. When I got my Cy-Kick CS I started spraying once a week. It took a couple of months to totally kill all bugs. The best thing is that it doesn't smell. I now use it outside, inside, and in my shop. It is not a instant kill but is great to keep them gone.
Killer Stuff! (And that's GOOD!)
By Ray in Cave Creek, AZ on December 22, 2014
Absolutely THE best killer I have ever used. While not super toxic to humans, it kills scorpions within a foot of the treated area. Same for black widows and other crawlers. I treat the entry doors once a month during bug season and then every other month in the winter. ZERO live critters in the barn. Awesome. And a little goes a long way. I barely went through a bottle for my house AND barn last year. Bought two extra bottles on sale. Don't want to ever be without this product.

bottom line-this stuff works
By Mark in Mesa, Arizona on December 19, 2014
it's the only product I've used that keeps the scorpions under control here in Mesa Arizona. I very seldom see one any more and then they are almost always barely moving so I know they are being "drugged" by the cy-kick. no more scorpions inside the house.

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.
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.
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.
May 18, 2015 Fred asked:
QMy wife is terrified for my health, so I was wondering if there is any standard PPE recommended to use when applying a spray. Say specifically Cy-Kick CS would I need to wear anything? Is a gas mask overkill?
A We recommend that you follow the product label and MSDS for information on protective equipment when applying insecticides as they can vary. The MSDS for Cy-Kick CS recommends that you wear basic protective gear. We do carry a Basic Safety Kit on our website and offer free shipping! Please let us know if you need anything else.
May 18, 2015
Fred from Columbus, In asked:
QCan I get one pesticide that is the best for outdoor and indoor use? Or should I get one for each?
I was thinking Cy-Kick CS for outdoor use. I have two cats and will soon have children so I wanted something safe for indoor as well. Would Cy-Kick CS be the best for both uses? Also if I get two would I need to get two sprayers so they do not mix? As a side note, is Cy-Kick CS the best one for general stopping invading insects? I think we mostly see spiders as of now.
A Cy-Kick CS is a fantastic outdoor and indoor general use insecticide that is safe for children and pets as long as they are kept out of the treated area until the insecticide has dried. Drying time is normally an hour or two.

Scotty from Las Vegas asked:
QWhat type of sprayer can I use Cy-kick CS? Can I use same sprayer I use for weed control?
I already know I want the Cy-Kick CS but I don't know what type of sprayer to get. Also, I have a backpack sprayer I fill with weed killer, but am conerned about trace amounts of chemical effecting the efficacy of both. Likewise, I don't know how corrosive Cy-Kick CS is and maybe I need a specific type of sprayer.
A Any type of a pump sprayer will work with Cy kick. Just be sure to clean the sprayer out after every use. You do not want to use the same sprayer for insecticides and herbicides.

Rick from Amarillo, Texas asked:
QI need a good preventative spay. What do you recommend?
I am looking for a good preventive spay for indoor and outdoor use, does not have to be the same product. No bug related issues, so just something to prevent any future problems. Amarillo Texas is in the top of Texas, we have a 3000 sq ft home. I have pump type 2 gallon sprayer.
A 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.

Katrina from Rialto Ca asked:
QWhich product of these three will be best for me? Cy-kick CS vs Termidor or Tempo
I need help in determining which product is best for me. I live in Southern California and have an array of pest: spiders including black widows, ants, slugs, crickets, mosquitoes, wasp, silverfish, termites, etc. What is the best product for me to use? Is there one product or do I need all three?
A Tempo SC or Cy-Kick CS both would be great options for you to use around your home and inside to control pretty much all the pests you mentioned and then some. Termidor would only be used if you are doing a trench treatment around the foundation of the home for subterranean termites, or if you were drilling a hole in a wall to spray it directly on a termite colony as a spot treatment.
March 30, 2015
Jack from Phoenix Arizona asked:
Qi am concerned about feeding outside birds next to areas sprayed with cy kick. will it harm them
A Cy-Kick will be safe once the product has dried. A bird would have to consume a large amount of the prodcut to be affected. If this is a concern, refrain from spraying that area directly with Cy-Kick.
March 24, 2015
Bo from Carlsbad Nm asked:
QI'd like to mix Exciter to Cy-Kick CS to add some quicker knockdown.
How do most effectively mix the two chemicals and does mixing alter performance of either ?
A ExciteR can be mixed with any insecticide including Cy-Kick CS to give it a faster initial knockdown. You would follow the rates on each product labels, 1 to 2 oz Cy-Kick CS per gallon of water, 1/4 to 1/4 fl. ounce of ExciteR per finished gallon

Autumn from Gilbert, Az asked:
QI am concerned that after I apply Cy-Kick CS, my free-range chickens will eat the bugs that are contaminated.
Any suggestions?? I'm specifically trying to kill scorpions. Thanks!
A Unless the chickens are consuming the Cy-Kick CS directly there should be no effect on the bird or their eggs. Once the product has dried, it only has a toxicity level of that to kill something as small as an insect. The insect walks across it, picks up a little bit on their feet/bodies and ingests it as they groom themselves. For there to be even a chance of your chicken having any effect from the Cy-Kick CS, they would have to eat at least their weight worth in insects that have died from it.
