Chuck from Elgin, Tx. writes,

Will the hot dry summer alter the efficiency?

Texas is in the midst of a long and hot extended drought; often in excess of 100 for several days. If installed during this period, will the efficiency of CK-KICK CS be effected?

Answer:

Very hot temperatures and a lot of direct sunlight will reduce the efficacy of insecticides which is why manufacturers give varying times of efficacy such as "will work for 4-12 weeks outdoors". During ideal conditions you can expect the Cy-Kick CS to last for 12 weeks, during very hot temps and lots of UV rays you can expect the product to last for about 4 weeks.
