    Box elder bug problems

    By Todd on 04/12/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I had a Box Elder bug problem for the last 20 years. I have used several different products out on the market and have not found anything that would work. Since I have bought Cynoff EC and applied it to the surrounding foundation of my house the bugs have not returned.  I am very pleased with your product and would recommend Cynoff to anyone having the same issue I have had.

    Great Product. Same as Pros use

    By Lorraine on 11/10/2010

    Verified Purchase

    We priced a professional and they wanted $150 for the first treatment followed by $60 every two months. In addition, they wanted everybody and all pets removed for 4hrs when they came for the treatment. I checked and this is the stuff they use. Easy to mix and use, not nearly as harmful as many products, and it seems to work great! Don't waste your money on the "Pros" just "Do My Own Pest Control!"

    Cynoff EC = Dead Spiders

    By Paul on 07/11/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I have been fighting brown recluse spiders for almost two years. Most of my fight has been done by a "professional exterminator". After doing a lot of research on the brown recluse spider and pest control in general, I discovered that my exterminator was not using the best pesticide for spiders, he was not using an appropriate amount of pesticide and he was not applying the pesticide in a way that would create an effective bug-barrier. Prior to me taking on the spiders myself, the only dead spiders I found were in some of the 30+ glue traps that I have stationed around the inside of my home and in my garage. Since I have been doing my own pest control, the spider-count in the traps is down substantially and I am actually finding dead or dying spiders outside of the traps. Cynoff EC is a real killer. I use Cynoff EC inside my home because it is non-staining; I use Demon WP around the perimeter of my home and in the garage because it is a wettable powder and it has a little more staying power. Cynoff EC and Demon WP have the same active ingredients, but the Cynoff EC drys clear and the Demon WP leaves a visible residue on my wood floors. Both work very well against spiders.

    Needed help with spiders and other crawling pests

    By Annie on 08/11/2010

    Verified Purchase

    So far, since spraying a week ago, we are seeing fewer spider webs. There are crawling insects laying on their backs with feet in the air. It looks like we have a good product here. We mixed it according to directions on the label. I was so pleased that it did not leave a white residue on the paint, screens and windows. This bottle looks like it will last a long time.

    Cynoff EC

    By Craig on 11/11/2010

    Verified Purchase

    We've had a ladybug problem for 5 years and used Cynoff EC to take care of it. The spray was easy to apply, it didn't stain our house, and it was very effective. We sprayed a little over a week ago, and we continue to see new dead bugs. We are very happy with this product and plan to reapply if needed.

Q
Will Cynoff EC leave a noticeable film on my dark siding?

I notice that several of the cypermethrin based products say they leave a powdery film on dark surfaces. I want to spray my dark gray siding where I have a massive stink bug infestation. Does this product leave a similar film?

A
Cynoff EC will not leave a white powdery residue on dark siding. The products that leave that white powdery residues are in fact wettable powders and all have the letters WP in the product name (Cynoff WP, Demon WP).

Q
I need directions for mixing ratio for the liquid Cynoff EC concentrate.

Purchased the bottle last year and lost the mixing directions

Q
Will Cynoff EC kill ticks and fleas in the yard?

How much of an area does one bottle cover?

A
Yes Cynoff EC will kill Fleas and ticks in the yard. You want to mix 1oz Cynoff EC with 1 gallon of water. For best results, we recommend also mixing in an Insect Growth Regulator like Nyguard that will treat the eggs, larvae or nymphs - and prevent them from maturing into reproductive adults thereby controlling future infestations. NyGuard IGR will cause morphological anomalies or changes and disrupt the expected insects' state of development, leading to sterility or death. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Q
Will Cynoff EC kill Bed Bugs

My Exterminator has been using Cynoff EC to treat a an indoor bedbug and tick problem. I see that Cynoff EC kills ticks will it kill BB too?

A
Cynoff EC is not labeled for bedbugs so we cannot recommend you use it for bedbug control. We do have many products that are labeled for ticks and for bedbugs. Please refer to our Bedbug product page and our bedbug kits to see what we recommend to get rid of this pest.
