How long will the suspension of Cy-Kick CS remain effective if I have solution remaining after I spray?

Many times I have the diluted Cy-Kick CS solution left over when I am done spraying. How long will the solution remaining stay effective? What is the proper way of disposal?

Answer:

Cy-Kick CS as well as any other products are not meant to be stored longer than 24 hours once mixed with water. Most sprayer manufacturers warn against storing insecticides inside the sprayer. Storing liquids (even plain water) inside the sprayer can cause the rubber components to deteriorate quickly and make the sprayer inoperable. Only mix exactly what you can use and discard any left over solution outside in the woods or in a place that is not near any bodies of water and thoroughly rinse the sprayer after each use.
