Cy-Kick, Why You Should Love this Insecticide

Bug Lady posted this on Aug 10, 2016

Cy-Kick CS



Prescription Treatment brand Cy-Kick CS Controlled Release Cyfluthrin is the multi-use insecticide designed for professionals like yourself who want a 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 products.

What is Cy-Kick CS?

Designed for Better Results

SmartCap Technology is designed to reduce mammalian toxicity to pest professionals, 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 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.


High-performance microencapsulation technology for the most demanding pestcontrol situations. Cy-Kick CS provides broad-spectrum killing power and 90-day residual control of structural pests on all surfaces. Cy-Kick CS is a multi-use spray that is the flagship of Whitmire Micro-Gen’s proprietary SmartCap microencapsulation technology platform and features cyfluthrin, a proven active ingredient that delivers the broadest insect control of the SmartCap family of products.
