Cy Kick Insecticide. This is what the pro’s use, so it’s an easy choice and this is the best product on the market. You won’t find it at Lowes or Home Depot but pros like Orkin and Terminix and other pest control companies use this. The active ingredient in Cy Kick is cyfluthrin, which is a synthetic pyrethroid.
What Is Cy Kick Pest Control?
A Strong Professional Grade Insect Killer
Synthetic pyrethroids are man-made insecticides created to mimic the chemical properties of the naturally-occurring insecticide pyrethrum, which comes from the crushed petals of the Chrysanthemum flower.
Synthetic pyrethroids, like cyfluthrin, are often preferred as an active ingredient because they offer the added bonus of remaining effective for longer periods of time, sometimes up to 3 months. Follow directions on the label as Cy kick, like most pyrethroids, is highly toxic to fish and birds.

Cykick CS can be used indoors and outdoors to control all types of pests.
In the United States, approximately 800 million pounds of pesticides are used annually in agriculture, and 80–90% of households report using pesticides. Compared to other chemical agents for insect control, the pyrethroids used in Cy-kick are considered to be less toxic insect control agents.

Prescription Treatment brand Cy-Kick CS Controlled Release Cyfluthrin is a multi-use insecticide designed for professionals who want a product that works. Cy-Kick CS has the high-powered performance and flexibility you need at a competitive price.
I live in Michigan and use it every two to three months outside. We definitely don’t have scorpion or black widow problems here, but I know people who have used this in Arizona and they say it is the only thing that works! Inside the house, I use it under sinks and by the entrance to the garage about twice a year. No ants, bugs, or other creepy crawlies.
Where Can You Find Cy Kick Insecticide?
You will not find Cy-Kick in Lowes, Home Depot or most hardware stores. I have seen it at a few local Ace Hardware stores. Sometimes your local exterminator will also sell it to you. It is a professional exterminator treatment but can be purchased online.
Bottom line is that Cy-Kick insecticide is designed for professionals and home owners who want an insect control product that works. It provides 90 days of killing power, controlling insects inside and outside. The difference is the long residual and lethal dose of cyfluthrin that insects easily pick up.
