What spray will work for scorpions and last for about 6 months?

I had to have a pest Control person come in and they used bifen and cykick on the outside and cykick on the inside. I'm looking for something I can do myself safely and that lasts 6 mo. I've used Ortho Home Smart on the perimeter outside and inside and its been good but the last 2 yrs I've found scorpions in the house and in the garage. I only live in the house during the winter from Jan ! to may 1


Cy Kick CS is one of the top products for scorpion control. Unfortunately there is not a concentrated spray product on the market that will last 6 months, most concentrates will last for up to 8 weeks outdoors. Also, products that do leave a residual do not have an immediate kill which could account for scorpions that are still able to get indoors. If you are looking for a product that has a longer residual than the concentrated liquids you can apply a dust insecticide product such as Delta Dust or Tempo Dust to wall voids and cracks and crevices indoors and outdoors. Dust insecticides can last 6 months or more when applied according to the product labels.
