It is highly recommended to make a minimum of two applications indoors but may require additional applications depending on the level of fleas.

Cy-Kick CS is a great product, but Termidor SC is the preferred product for your situation. Termidor SC is a non-repellent insecticide that also has a transfer effect, this means that the ants will not know that Termidor SC has been applied, and therefore cannot avoid the treated area and as they come into contact with other ants they will spread the insecticide and wipe out the colony. Termidor SC can also be used for drywood termites. It is important to remember that you must apply the product into the spaces that these termites will actually come into contact with it. That could mean that you would need to drill into the wood or possibly even foam the product into the space.We have never had a complaint about the smell of Termidor SC and the MSDS says that it is odorless.
