BASF uses a unique set of numbers to match up that product, when it was made, what lot it was a part of and how many were in that lot. Below you will see an example of a Cy-Kick aerosol can and how it is broken down. The batch numbers can vary in location on BASF products from just above the label on a bottle, to the bottom of a container or can, as well as on the sides of case containers or boxes.
On the bottom of a can of Cy-Kick you will normally see a few sets of numbers appearing as follows:
59011782 15 111
Starting with the first row. The first set of numbers normally starting in 59- ex: 59011782 is BASF's article number for the product.
The second set- ex: 15, indicates the year in which the product was produced. For this can that would mean it was produced in the year 2015
The third set- ex: 111, indicates the numerical day of the year that the product was produced. So it was manufacturer on the 111th day of the year of 2015. This comes out to show it was produced on April 21st of 2015.
The bottom row of numbers indicates the batch information. The first set- ex: 203923930, indicates the actual batch/lot number for the manufacturer. The second set- ex: 28570 indicates the container count of each batch.
Yes, Cy-Kick Aerosol will kill stinkbugs that land on the surfaces that have been sprayed. Because stinkbugs are a relatively new problem, most companies have not had the opportunity to add them to their product labels. Most synthetic pyrethroids like the Cy-Kick will effectively treat stinkbugs. We also carry a Stink Bug Control Kit and Stink Bug Traps.
Unfortunately, the manufacturer only provides us with one straw per can, and we do not have any extra straws. You can call the manufacturer, Whitmire Microgen 800-777-8570, and they should be able to help you.
