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’s active ingredient Cyfluthrin is a pyrethrin, which means it is user-safe, environment friendly, and less likely to cause skin irritation than other active ingredients. 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.
|Active Ingredient:||Cyfluthrin 6.0%|
|Target pests:||All types of household and commercial pests including ants, bed bugs, roaches, spiders, earwigs, crickets, centipedes, beetles, and more.|
|Pet safe:||Yes; when used as directed.|

|Manufactured By:||Whitmire Micro-Gen|
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.
VOID / CRACK & 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.
Dilute Cy-Kick CS to 0.05% or 0.10% 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).
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% 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% 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.

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.

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.

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.

Best price and Best treatment for Scorpions
May 31, 2013
During my college days I sold pest control door to door and also spent 2 years as a pest control technician. We used Cy-Kick and the vendor that we purchased from was charging the company almost 2x what you can buy the 120 oz bottle on this website. This is by far the greatest find for pest control products, especially Cy-kick. I've been using this website for 2 years now and have referred all my friends and neighbors. You can get Cy-kick from multiple websites and stores but you'll never find a cheaper place to buy cy-kick than this website.

By Stuart on May 29, 2013
My wife and I moved into an older house last summer and battled roaches in our wooded neighborhood until winter came. My wife called an exterminator every time we found a roach in the house (which was every couple of weeks), so I decided to try it myself this spring to save money. I ordered Cy-Kick CS about a month ago but hadn't used it yet when I noticed a couple of huge roaches on top of the manhole cover to the city sewer directly in front of our front yard. I mixed up some Cy-Kick and sprayed a wide ring on the street surrounding the manhole cover and the next morning there were literally dozens of dead roaches within a 20 foot radius of the manhole cover. It was a total massacre. The following Saturday I sprayed a 6 foot band completely surrounding the house, and haven't seen any bugs inside yet. We'll see how the rest of the spring and summer go, but so far, I'm very impressed with this product. Every roach that crawled out of that sewer in front of our lawn didn't make it very far, and they seem to have left altogether. Great product.
By Maggie on May 27, 2013
It works on scorpions, acrobat ants and whatever and lasts after the application just as it says. We had problems with the aforementioned but bought it originally to take care of chigger patch beyond our pool house and pump. It worked great and they have not returned to that area. This is the only product that we've had good success with when it comes to scorpions. We used it in the attic and eaves. Please follow directions!
By Jim on May 27, 2013
I had been using Telstar-P which worked great. I thought I would give this one a try. A little more expensive, but it worked great. The bugs died much faster. After spraying there were dead bugs all around the house the next morning and for the next few days.
By Sabrina on May 26, 2013
No scorpions, no bugs! I still can't believe it. We spray 2-3 times a year and had a scorpion problem when we moved it. I tell all my friends about Cy-kick

Cy-Kick to control spiders
By Bruce on May 14, 2013
I own BridgeView RV park on Lake Fork in E. Texas. I have been using Tempo Ultra WP or Demon to control spiders and pests on my customers RV and Deck areas. Both of these products left a noticeable residue when the product dried. I am using a 10% solution and a day after application, there is a minimal residue appearance. Will continue to purchase this product to control spiders. At this time I do not know how long this product is effective. Depending on the rain we receive the other products last 2 - 3 months. Would recommend this product if appearance to the surface is important.

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.
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.
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.

Marc from Miami, Florida asked:
QCan I use Cy-Kick Indoors (on a boat)?
I have a continual roach problem on my boat I live on in Miami FL. Tried bait traps, foggers, etc. They only work for a while. This stuff seems good, but can I use it Indoors? I have a cat, so I am coincnerned. Also, what restrictions should I seriously consider if it can be used indoors?
AAccording to the Cy Kick CS product label, you can use this in boats and other modes of transportation. You will want to only use it along what would be considered the "baseboards" of the boat and cracks and crevices the roaches could hide in. For extra control consider adding a birth control product to the spray to keep the roaches from reproducing faster than you can eliminate them. You could mix NyGuard IGR into the same gallon of water that you would mix the Cy Kick in and spray them at the same time. You would keep any pets and children away from the treated area until it has dried, and once dry it is completely safe to be around. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Mike from Texas asked:
I've asked a prior question regarding usage rates of CyKick CS. I'm always trying to find a way to eliminate the need for a professional control service. However, I looked at my invoice the other day and realized the technician sprayed almost 15 gallons around my 2000SF home! Keep in mind, this was simply my bi-monthly treatment for Scorpions - no infestation or anything. He uses a "power sprayer" and I'm sure lots of water in his mixture, but how could I duplicate 15 gallons? Does that seem excessive? So as you can tell, it's things like that that make us (the consumer) reluctant to DIY...
AFor scorpion control, you are always going to use much more product than you would for general pest control. For general insects like ants, spiders and roaches you would only spray 2 feet up and 2 feet out just around the foundation of the home. For scorpions you need a much wider barrier for them to cross to have the product pass through their tough exoskeleton. It normally takes spraying 6-10 feet out on the ground around the home, plus any other landscape harborage areas to control them effectively. Depending on the outdoor elements in your area will depend on whether you will need to treat monthly or every 2-3 months. The Cy-Kick CS is a great option for scorpion control but you will use a fair amount of it to treat and keep your property free of pests. You normally mix it at the rate of 1-2 ounces per gallon of water, and each gallon you mix up will cover roughly 1000 sq/ft, depending on how heavy you wet the surface area.

Mike from Texas asked:
Can I spray Cy-Kick CS on my lawn for effective control of Scorpions? If not, what would work better. Keep in mind, we have local watering restrictions so any type of water-activated granual is very hard to apply.
AYes, you can definitely spray Cy-Kick CS on your lawn as a broadcast for scorpion control. Cy-Kick CS can be sprayed on most types of foliage safely, with the exception of edibles. You should never spray Cy-Kick CS on any type of edible vegetation. Be sure to pay close attention to debris, lumber, firewood, large rocks, or other materials that could serve as harbor sites for scorpions. If you plan on storing any such materials outdoors it would be best to apply the Cy-Kick CS as a residual spray to surfaces directly underneath those materials. 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 scorpions from invading your home.

QScorpion Control Product
I spend ridiculous amounts of money on professional pest services and Iím looking for a thriftier way to control pests in these harder economic times. I might be your next big customer. However, I canít skimp when it comes to the safety of my family. That said, we live in South Texas and have a huge Bark Scorpion population. Understanding my concern, how much Cy-Kick CS would be needed to maintain an effective barrier on a 2000 SF home? In other words, how many bottles would I need to order to create the proper mixture and application rate?
ACy-Kick CS will help prevent scorpion 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. Essentially, one pint will give you approx. 16,000 square feet of treatment.

Anthony from San Jose California asked:
QI purchased the IGR concentrate as well as the Cy-kick concentrate to treat the problem of oriental roaches?
I purchased the igr concentrate as well as the cy-kik concentrate to treat the problem of oriental cockroaches. i noticed that in the website it says: "We recommend Gentrol IGR Concentrate to be added to your 2 gallon hand sprayer and sprayed right along with your baseboard chemical ( Demand CS, Suspend SC, or Demon WP) to provide excellent control." does this mean that i can add to the cy-kik too? does this mean to apply together at the same time in the same application? what or how would you recommend i apply this? one at a time? whick first? or together? i must add that i only have a one (1) gallon sprayer. thank u in advance for taking time to answer my question.
AYes, You want to mix 1oz Cykick Cs, with 1oz Gentrol in one gallon of water. You then can apply the mixed solution to the cracks, crevices, where insects may be hiding, living and breeding and/or for selected spot application.
April 25, 2013
Connie from Long Beach, Ca asked:
QDoes Cy-Kick CS work for booklice inside the home?
AThe best way to control booklice is by lowering the humidity in the infested areas which in turn will help eliminate the mold and fungus these insects need to survive. Infested furniture and carpeting should be thoroughly steam cleaned and vacuumed. You can spray your furniture with Sterifab to get rid of any lingering insects. Cracks and crevices around baseboards, door frames, window frames and other harborage areas can safely be treated with Cy-Kick Aerosol. You can also follow up with a dusting of Cimexa Dust to help eliminate these pests in carpet and in cracks and crevices around the home. You cannot spray anything on books so for those we recommend you find a way to heat treat them with a device like the Packtite or you can seal them loosely into bins with Nuvan Prostrips.

Amy from Chandler, Az asked:
QCy-Kick CS vs Suspend SC: Which product is better for killing scorpions and spiders?
My neighbor says Suspend SC but I have been using Cy-Kick. Also I have 9 mature Queen Palms in my backyard and read scorpions love palm trees, how should I be treating these Palm trees?
AWhile both products are indeed labeled for scorpion control and will kill scorpions most professionals prefer Cy-Kick CS because it is micro encapsulated which helps the product stay up on top of porous surfaces and helps it to hold up a bit better to UV rays and rain. You can spray around the base of the palms and on the trunks to help get rid of any scorpions that are harboring in the trees.

Jim from Phoenix, Arizona asked:
QI live in Phoenix, Arizona and have desert landscaping (no grass). What is the best product(s) for scorpions?
AThere are several products that would do an awesome job controlling scorpions. Cy-Kick CS is a favorite among professional pest control operators. Cy-Kick CS is a micro-encapsulated product. This means that the particles of the active ingredient are contained in tiny mico-capsules, the insect walks onto the treated surface and picks up the capsules on their bodies and then the micro capsules slowly dry out and crack and the active ingredient oozes out on the insect. These micro capsules make the Cy-Kick last for up to 90 days and also make it safer to use around pets and children. Be sure to spray in the areas where scorpions actually harbor, rock beds, garden areas, bricks walls, under landscaping timbers and also spray around the perimeter of your home.
