Cy-Kick CS Insecticide
Prescription Treatment brand Cy-Kick CS Controlled Release Cyfluthrin is the multi-use insecticide designed for professionals like yourself who want an insect control product that works just as smart as you do. It dishes out 90 days of full-throttle, broad-spectrum killing power, controlling insects inside and outside, on the toughest areas and surfaces. The difference is SmartCap microencapsulation technology that protects cyfluthrin to create a long residual and a mobile lethal dose of this broad-spectrum active ingredient that insects easily pick up. Cy-Kick CS has the high-powered performance and flexibility you need, at a competitive price. And it’s much less likely to cause skin irritation than some other insect control products.
What is Cy-Kick CS
Designed for Better Results
SmartCap Technology is designed to reduce mammalian toxicity to professionals offering pest control, while it increases field performance, durability and flexibility. The microcapsules are manufactured by essentially adding an outer shell (a carbon-based polymer) to a droplet of oil that contains cyfluthrin, the active ingredient (a.i.) in Cy-Kick CS. The end result is a powerful droplet of cyfluthrin in a polymer capsule. 95% of the capsules are less than 20 microns in diameter, the same tiny size as the droplets produced from the best ULV equipment. State-of-the-art SmartCap Technology provides many benefits for you and your customers. Inside the capsule, cyfluthrin is suspended in a drop of oil, which means the active ingredient quickly penetrates to other oily/waxy surfaces, like the exoskeletons of insects. As soon as an insect comes into contact with Cy-Kick CS, cyfluthrin starts moving from inside the capsule toward the insect and then quickly into its system.
A Minefield of Coverage
The density of Cy-Kick CS is very similar to water, resulting in an even, consistent mixture that requires very little agitation to remain in full suspension. When sprayed, Cy-Kick CS creates a thick blanket of microcapsules. The barrier is impossible for insects to cross without exposing themselves to a lethal dose of insecticide. In fact, the likelihood that insects will receive a lethal dose is higher than with any other encapsulated product because Cy-Kick CS has five times the number of capsules than its nearest encapsulated competitor.1
Mobile Lethal Dose
Chances of insect exposure are extremely high because the capsules stay on the surface where they’re applied and won’t bind to organic matter or be absorbed in porous surfaces. When insects crawl across the barrier, they pick up microcapsules on their hairs and body triggering a rapid release of the active ingredient that is absorbed by the insect’s exoskeleton. This mobile lethal dose of Cy-Kick CS Insecticide microcapsules can also be ingested during the grooming process. Contact time required to receive a lethal dose is very short because of the ease that the insect picks up capsules and the fast diffusion of the cyfluthrin.
I had a exterminator for 5 years who came once a month. My attic was dusted etc. . .and I still couldn't get rid of the scorpions. A friend recommended Cy-Kick, so I cancelled my exterminator and started using Cy-Kick. I don't have scorpions any longer. I see them dead but none in the house. I spray it on my lawn also and it kills the ants.
Cy kick as indoor & outdoor pesticide, 8.21.2012
Reviewer: ashish thatte (spokane, WA)
I have used cy kick cs both as indoor and outdoor perimeter barrier treatment. It is great for both. I mainly used this for elimination for Springtails. The day I sprayed this both indoors and outdoors and reduced my lawn watering (As springtails were comming from the moist soil in my lawn), the springtails reduced significantly (almost gone). I need to repeat this treatment again within three four weeks to completely eliminate the problem. I am also using Deltagard G Granules for lawn for springtails and have found it useful as well.
Works Great on Mosquitos, 7.5.2012
Reviewer: Greg S (, NC)
This stuff works great on mosquitos. I have a very shady backyard that is full of trees and bushes and they harbor mosquitos to the point I couldn't enjoy sitting in the back without getting eaten alive. I called my local mosquito company and noticed that he used this stuff to spray my yard and I noticed it worked great for about 2.5 months. So I ordered some and got the same results. Just spray it on the tree/bush leaves, in the grass, under desks etc and you'll be pretty much mosquito free for about 2.5 months. I even spray my neighbors bushes that edge my house. I can now enjoy my yard. It even kills ants, spiders, roaches, termites and almost every other insect you can think of. It doesn't seem to affect other wildlife. Squirrels, birds... and Moles :-(... are still around. It dilutes well so $40 bottle lasted me almost a whole year. I even use it inside the house for household pests.
This stuff does the job. Have been using it since Orkin used it when they were doing my bug control. A couple of roaches now and then but that's expected.
Scorpion control, 11.28.2011
Reviewer: Thomas Gamble (Royse city, TX)
I called several exterminators for my Scorpion problem and they all told me they couldn't guarantee getting rid of scorpions. I used your CY Kick and within a few days we saw dead scorpions everywhere. It took 2 applications, but since the second application we have not seen a scorpion in over a week. I also sprayed my daughter's house. I also cancelled my regular exterminator and will use the CY Kick and do my own bug control.
