    Q
    How do I determine the manufacture date of BASF chemicals? What do all the numbers mean?
    Removing for time being
    A

    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

    203923930 28570

    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.

    Q
    What product or procedures will get rid of bugs in my rice and pasta products?
    I live in Florida and have a have a food storage pantry that I have typically stored rice, spaghetti, lasagne, and noodles in. I discovered bugs in my rice a few months ago, and soon found the same bugs in all my pasta products. I threw everything out, bought new products, and the bugs were back in everthing within days. I have since used or thrown products out again, and am buying in small quantities only and using product quickly, but still have the bugs from time to time. I can't get rid of them and they must be still in some products. I am worried that they could find their way through the house to my kitchen pantry. I use Taslstar P on a regular basis for my home protection, but obviously don't spray my shelves and food, only the baseboards. I need some suggestions on what to do or use to get rid of these bugs.
    A
    For pantry beetles or weevils you should remove everything from the cabinet, inspect every item, discard anything that is infested. Next you should thoroughly vacuum all cracks in the cabinet. Last, you can apply a product such as Cy-Kick Aerosol to all of cracks and crevices in the cabinet to help kill any hidden pupa as they emerge so that they cannot continue to re-infest products. After the cabinet has completely dried you can put food products back in the cabinet.

    I have a small dog and will take her to a neighbors house when i spray but will it be safe for her after the product has dried for an hour or two?
    A
    Yes. Cy-Kick Aerosol can be used in a house where animals live, the animals just need to be out of the area that is being treated, and they can return as soon as the treated area is dry.

    Q
    What does the "CS" on Cy-Kick stand for?
    I have a 20 oz aerosol can of Cy-Kick CS. When I search for that product it comes up with the concentrate that you have to mix. Also, I can't find it in 20oz cans online.
    A
    CS stands for "capsulated suspension" or microencapsulated solution.  Microencapsulated products last a little longer than the normal version but are really only beneficial when used outside in direct sunlight or an area where there may be a lot of moisture.  The Cy-Kick CS version of the Cy-Kick aerosol that you are looking for is much more expensive.  Since most people use this product indoors, we have chosen to only offer the Cy-Kick aerosol version instead of the Cy-Kick CS aerosol version.  Both Cy-Kick aerosol and Cy-Kick CS aerosol have the same amount of active ingredient, Cyfluthrin .1%.

    Q
    Is Cy-Kick aerosol safe to use in a child's room?
    Roaches seem to hide between the bed and wall. This is where I like to spray. My kids are wild sleepers and they tend to let their blankets fall in that area. My question is, if the blanket does fall could the Cy-Kick harm my kids if they then use the blanket? Is Cy-Kick safe once it is dry?
    A
    First, you may want to consider thoroughly cleaning the area where roaches tend to congregate in your childs room, especially if your child eats in there. Second, if you are using the Cy-Kick Aerosol properly (please read the product label) then it is only being applied to the cracks and crevices around the room, not out in the open on the floor. By applying the product as specified on the product label, you limit the contact your children can have with it. And yes, once the product is dry it is safe for the kids to be around.

    Q
    Any reason to use Cy-Kick and Mother Earth together?
    I noticed that my erstwhile pest control service routinely used both Cy-Kick CS and Mother Earth at my home. Any ideas on why and how they might use both? The directions on Mother Earth label say that it can be rendered ineffective if contaminated with another insecticide, so I'm not sure how or why I should use this if I have the Cy-Kick CS. The only thing I can think of is crack and crevice, or perhaps in the shrubbery around the house. I already have both, so any ideas would be appreciated.
    A
    It is true that you would not want to put them in the same place, but they are both great products to use at the same time, just in different places.  The Cy-Kick CS should be applied around the outside perimeter to help keep pests out of the home.  MotherEarth dust should be used indoors in voids and hard to reach places such as underneath appliances, where pipes go into the walls under sinks and behind toilets, floor of the water heater closet, attic spaces, etc.  Dust is better for these areas because dust will last much longer than the spray, sometimes up to 8 months.  You should apply the Cy-Kick CS around the outside perimeter of the home every 2 to 3 months for best results.

    Q
    Can you use this product in the kitchen pantry?
    How long should you wait before putting food back in the pantry? I'm just concerned about food touching the product and ,asking our family and baby sick.
    A
    You can use the straw applicator that comes with the product to apply Cy-Kick aerosol directly to the cracks and crevices in side of cabinets. Do not apply Cy-Kick Aerosol to the shelf surface or as a broadcast spray in the cabinet. You should wait until the application is completely dry before placing food or dishes back into the cabinets.

    Can you recommend a good indoor aerosol that has residual. I recently quit Terminex and the technician used

    Q
    I have misplaced the straw that is used for dispensing CY-Kick aerosol. Where can I buy a replacement straw?
    A

    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.

    Q
    I've been finding house crickets in my apartment. I think they're coming in from outside.
    Which would you recommend for crickets? Cy-kick or D-force? Which is more effective, less odor, and longer residual? Also, will it kill eggs?
    A
    Cy-Kick and D-Force are both very good products that are labeled to kill crickets. They both have a residual that will keep killing. They are both crack and crevice sprays. D-Force does have a residual of 8 weeks, while Cy-Kick will be about 6 weeks. Their is a mild odor with both. No, these products will not kill eggs.

    Q
    Is Cy-Kick Aerosol geared to kill stink bugs?
    A

    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.

    Q
    Is this product effective for clothes moths?
    I have a walk-in closet and have had many articles of clothing ruined by moths. If this product is effective for moths, how would I use it?
    A
    Cykick aerosol can help control clothing moths if it is sprayed on infested areas. The most important part of clothes moth control is finding the source and thoroughly cleaning the item(s) or disposing of the item(s) all together. Failure to do so will lead to poor results. Clothes moth eggs generally hatch out within 10 days during warmer temperatures and two weeks or longer during colder temperatures. Spraying a second time will help kill the adults but unless the larva are targeted you may continue to need additional treatments. Please take a moment to read our article How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths to learn more about this pest.
