What is the coverage area for outside perimeter treatment with Cy-Kick CS?

1- How much product is needed for doing a perimeter treatment around an average (2000 sq ft single story) house? 2- For primarily ant control, how does this product compare to Termidor?


Most all insecticides including Cy-Kick CS are labeled to be applied at a rate of 1 gallon per 1000 square feet.  Most homes usually take 2 gallons of solution to do a good outside perimeter treatment every 2 to 3 months.  So one bottle of Cy-Kick can easily last you a year and a half or more.  Termidor is considered to be the best ant treatment product on the market.  This is because Termidor does not kill the ants right away and the ants end up taking the Termidor back to the colony where it kills them at the source.  Cy-Kick CS will kill the ants much quicker, but the downside is the colony still marches on reproducing ants faster than you can kill them.  For all other insects, Cy-Kick CS would be considered to be better because you want other insects dead as quickly as possible, especially things like scorpions, which Cy-Kick CS is our best selling product for.
