How to Use Cykick CS Insecticide for Pest Control (Including Scorpions)

Speaker:  Keith McCoy, Solutions Self Chem






Hey, are you bothered by insects, other critters that may enter your home or garage, such as scorpions, centipedes, silver fish, crickets?Think about using Cy-kick CS!


My name’s Keith McCoy with Solutions Self Chem and I’ve got the product just for you. It’s called Cykick CS. It is a suspended concentrate. It contains cyfluthrin. It is produced by Whitmire Micro-Gen Research Laboratories, which is a BASF Company.


It’s a very low odor product, it can be used both indoor and outdoor. We mix this at a rate of 1 ounce per gallon of water. Here we’re in an environment where we—we’re in a garage and we’ve got one of the entries into the garage from the outside, we’ve got a threshold that’s actually missing so we’ve got a gap down there at the bottom of the door where insects and other critters may enter the garage.


What we want to do is spray this product around that area and other spot treatment areas, say around baseboards and things like that, where there is some insect activity.


If you give me just a second, let me mix some up and I’ll be right back.


Okay, we’ve got our product mixed, we’re ready to make our application. Again, we want to concentrate on the areas where the insects and other little critters are actually entering the garage.


We’re going to start here with this door, we’ve got a lot of cracks and crevices here. We’re just going to start at the bottom here and we’re going to make a full application right to the door facing here. Just make sure that we completely coat it. Also down here at the bottom, we’re going to spray a nice, even coat down here where we have our threshold missing.


Obviously the customer needs to do some repairs down there, so they’ll do that at a later date.


Okay, before we start our application out here on this abandoned railroad track, we want to make sure that we’re aware of where the property line starts and ends. We certainly don’t want to spray property that we don’t own or that we’re not actually going to be responsible for.


We’re going to start right here on the edge of the property line, we’re going to work our way toward the back side of the building here. Hopefully we’ll put down a barrier which is going to keep these scorpions back away from the building.


We’re just going to spray a nice, even coat of the product onto the ground. Scorpions like to get up underneath rocks and stones and boards, lot of landscape timber and things like that. These are areas that we really want to concentrate on.


Once we completed that application, then we’re going to move toward the back side of the building. Again, we’re going to pay attention to areas where we have voids, cracks, where insects and other arthropods and other critters can actually enter the building. We’re going to move over here to the back side of this building.


Okay, we’re going to start up around the AC unit up here, where we have some obvious cracks, crevices where insects can enter. Also for those hard-to-reach areas that are really high, you can adjust your sprayer tip to where it delivers a stream. It allows you to reach those really high areas, which that’s what we’re going to do all the way around the building.


Then for down low, you just want to make sure that you have a nice cone fan pattern that you get nice good coverage with.


This particular building here is up off the ground, so we’ll have a lot of insect and arthropods that’ll actually get up underneath and enter the structure that way.


Cykick CS, it’s a great product to use both indoor and outdoor, remember low odor, produced by BASF.
