Cyzmic CS Insecticide

Walt Cline - Pest Control Professional Pro Tip: "Cyzmic CS Insecticide has an active ingredient that has been the workhorse of the pest control industry for over 10 years. I like it for controlling the insects that enter from the outside. I don't suggest Cyzmic CS for ants or german roaches. Cyzmic CS is comparable to Demand CS but less expensive. You can pick up a really good sprayer for about 20 bucks if you get the Cyzmic -Sprayer Combo

Target Pest

Cyzmic CS controls a broad spectrum of insects including: Ants, Bed bugs (adults), Bees, Boxelder Bugs, Carpenter Bees, Carpet Beetles, Centipedes, Cigarette Beetles, Clover Mites, Cockroaches, Confused Flour Beetles, Crickets, Earwigs, Firebrats, Fleas, Flies, Lesser Grain Borers, Litter Beetles (adult/immature stages such as Darkling, Hide and Carrion), Millipedes, Mosquitoes, Pillbugs, Red Flour Beetles, Rice Weevils, Saw-toothed Grain Beetles, Scorpions, Silverfish, Sowbugs, Spiders, Termites (above ground only), Ticks, Wasps.


Bedbugs: Clean floors and surfaces by vacuuming. Apply as a coarse, low-pressure spray to harborage areas including crevices, baseboards, loose plaster, behind bed frames and headboards, beneath beds and furniture, and to bedsprings and bed frames. Do not apply to furniture surfaces or mattresses where people will be laying or sitting. Infested bedding should not be treated, but should be removed, placed in sealed plastic bags, and taken for laundering and drying at high temperatures.

Cockroaches, Crickets, Earwigs, Firebrats, Silverfish, and Spiders

Cockroaches, Crickets, Earwigs, Firebrats, Silverfish, and Spiders: Apply as a coarse, low pressure spray to areas where these pests hide, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, cabinets, behind and under refrigerators, sinks, furnaces and stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices; also see Outdoor Surfaces Use. 

Bees, Flies, Mosquitoes, and Wasps

Bees, Flies, Mosquitoes, and Wasps: Apply directly to walls, ceilings,window screens, and other resting areas as a residual surface treatment.May be used inside residential buildings as well as in and around carports, garages, and storage sheds; also see Outdoor Surfaces Use.Use caution when treating nests of stinging insects as CYZMIC CS does not provide instant knock down. Protective equipment for the applicator may be required. Treat bee, wasp and hornet nests late in the day when most insects will be present. Allow 2-3 days fo the colony to die and repeat after 21 days, if necessary. 

Carpenter Bees:

Apply coarse spray to thoroughly wet wood surfaces where bees have been previously active or to provide protection against further damage. Apply early in the spring to prevent bees from invading wood. When bees have infested wood, surface applications can help control embedded larvae and bees that emerge from the wood. 

Pantry Pests

Pantry Pests(i.e., Carpet beetle, Cigarette beetle, Confused flour beetle, Lesser grain borer, Red flour beetle, Rice weevil, and Saw-toothed grain beetle):Apply to cupboards, shelving, and storage areas.Remove all utensils, uncovered foodstuffs (or any having original package opened), and shelf paper before making application. Allow treated surfaces to dry and cover shelves with clean paper before replacing any utensils, foodstuff, or other items. Any foodstuff accidentally contaminated with treatment solution should be destroyed.

Boxelder Bugs, Centipedes, Millipedes, Pillbugs, and Sowbugs:

Boxelder Bugs, Centipedes, Millipedes, Pillbugs, and Sowbugs: Apply around doors and windows and other places where these pests may be found or where they may enter premises. Treat baseboards, storage areas, and other locations. Also see Outdoor Surfaces Use. 

Cluster Flies:

Apply in late summer or early fall before flies are observed alighting on surfaces. Apply thoroughly on siding, under eaves, and around windows and doors, paying particular attention to south-facing surfaces, but do not allow runoff to occur. Heavy precipitation prior to frost may require retreatments to maintain protection. In winter and spring when flies become active and are emerging, interior crack and crevice and void treatments can help reduce the infestation, along with ULV or general surface application in infested attics or unoccupied lofts.

More Instructions

Tank Mixing

Cyzmic CS may be tank mixed with other currently registered pesticides unless expressly prohibited by the product label.

Cyzmic CS may be tank mixed with an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR). Observe all restrictions and precautions which appear on the labels of these products.

Foam Applications

Cyzmic CS may be converted to a foam and the foam used to treat structural voids to control or prevent pests including ants, bees, termites (above ground only), wasps, or other arthropods harboring in walls.

Outdoor Surfaces

Use For control of ants, bees, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, flies, millipedes, mosquitoes, scorpions, sowbugs, pillbugs, spiders, termites* (above ground only), ticks, wasps, and other similar peimeter arthropod pests. Apply with either hand or power application equipment as a residual treatment to ornamental plants next to foundations of buildings and to surfaces of buildings, porches, screens, window frames, eaves, patios, garages, refuse dumps, and other similar areas where these insect pests are active. Remove all exposed food and cooking utensils.

Perimeter Treatments

Apply a continual band of insecticide around building foundations and around windows, doors, service line entrances, eaves, vents, and other areas to reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. Before application, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch, or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation. Apply the band up to 10 ft. wide around the structure (or according to state regulations governing commercial pest control) and upwards along the foundation to 3 ft. and around windows, doors, and roof overhangs. Apply as a coarse spray to thoroughly and uniformly wet the foundation and/or band area so that the insecticide will reach the soil or thatch level where pests may be active.

Great product
I used this product for ants and spiders. Big box store products are a waste of time.

works against scorpions
The recommended dilution for scorpions is .8oz/gallon but this is not a 'knock down' dosage per the pros. I use 1.25 oz/gallon & this has eliminated our scorpion problem. We live in the phoenix area where scorpions are a problem.
Review by Fred / (Posted on 10/10/2016)
I own Vet Pest Control out here in Surprise, AZ and scorpion control is a must. I switched from demand cs. I still use the same 1 oz to 1 gal mixture for scorpions. My customers overall seem to be pleased and have not had any issues on the switch. The only issue I have is the quart bottle is always 29-29.5 oz instead of 32. After 10 bottles that is one bottle less thank you should have. Still cheaper than demand cs in power sprays.

Cyzmic CS
I used Diazinon in the past until it was taken off the market and a friend told me about Cyzmic CS and have used it every year and works great! I have a huge phobia of spiders and this stuff works. Thank you!
Review by Nursysue / (Posted on 8/22/2016)
Good Product
Had carpenter bee infestation on redwood beams and posts on patio. Used pump sprayer with product mixed as directed and saw difference in about a week. Sprayed a 2nd time about 2 weeks later and carpenter bees are virtually gone now. Have only seen one actually land and try to bore a hole. Had to caulk the old holes which helped eliminate bees as well. Works as suggested. Thanks Do-It-Yourself Pest Control!
Review by Tom / (Posted on 6/1/2016)
Extremely satisfied with this product.
I purchased this product to eliminate Carpenter Bees. The bees had become a major problem endangering the structural integrity of some exterior roof beams.

This product eliminated the problem. Bi-monthly applications will prevent any further damage.
Review by Rob / (Posted on 5/28/2016)
Didn't work for my carpenter bee infestation.
I have a carpenter bee infestation. I spoke to the customer service guy at do ou own pest control. He suggested I may only need to spray with Cyzmic. Sprayed on Friday. New saw dust Monday morning. Just bought the dust spray in the holes. Hope the Cyzmic will work for other critters.

Very effective
I've used Cyzmic CS to control Stink Bugs for years. It is simply amazing how effective this stuff is. Simple to mix and simple to use too. You cannot go wrong with Cyzmic CS.

Review by Bunmson / (Posted on 5/6/2015)
Love it!
Will be ordering again since spring is coming. I always used diazinon until it was taken off the market and told this is the next best to use and it is!

I have a huge phobia of spiders and so far has worked well and keeping them away!
Review by hate bugs / (Posted on 3/12/2015)
Great Stuff
I used Demand CS a lot when I was a professional Pest Control Tech. This has the same active ingredient. It really works well, especially in hot weather. I make sure I get it into all cracks and crevices and put down a good barrier. I don't have bugs like the neighbors do.
Review by Mick / (Posted on 12/20/2014)
inexpensive quality
easy to use, inexpensive and very effective - no stains is a huge plus
Review by works / (Posted on 6/11/2014)
Great stuff for the cost conscious
Mix as much or as little as you want in a cheap sprayer from the store. This and the crack and crevice tool are all you will ever need.
Review by DoitYourselferDuluthGA / (Posted on 5/26/2014)
Roaches and Spiders No More
I was having a terrible time with large cockroaches and spiders crawling across my feet at my computer desk (creepy). The desk is next to a wall with a raised floor. I have a feeling the bugs live in the space under the raised floor and come out at the seams. I sprayed this all along the seam at the baseboard. I haven't seen a spider since and all the roaches that come out now start twitching and die in the living room floor. haha
Review by Roachmaster / (Posted on 12/6/2013)
Works great in the Florida Keys
I hate scorpions and I used to get them in the house. I use Cyzmic CS at a little greater than usual strength and anytime I see a scorpion now, he (or she) is dying or dead. Perfect. Of course there are no other pest insects in the house either.
Review by Fish Stories CJ / (Posted on 10/25/2013)
Unbelievable stuff. You can't go wrong here.
I've been using this now for about 8 or so years. Switched from Demon & Cyper WP because they leave a white residue once dry. If you have a dark colored house, this is unsightly. Not this. Drys clear and lasts for months. I spray twice a year. and that's it. No bugs. Just a great all arond insecticide. So is Demon and Cyper, if you don't mind the white residue. Highly recommend. Take care in spraying. Use safety glasses, dress properly and use mask if your so inclined. After seeing what it does to bugs, spiders and the like, I certainly don't want to ingest this stuff. There have been no ill effects around pets or kids.....or me. Just keep the fur & yur children away when wet and don't spray in areas where they are likly to come into contact. No need as spraying in perimeter and cracks, up high in awnings is good enough.

Last a long time
Sprayed this back in march and it's still working against earwigs. Haven't seen one in a long time.
Review by Nick L / (Posted on 8/2/2013)
The only good bug is a dead bug
Had bugs & spiders. Sprayed this (mixed with water of course) around the house and I haven't seen a bug or spider in the house in over a year. Definitely recommend this stuff. Magic? Don't care.
Review by Albino Meatpod / (Posted on 8/16/2012)
will not work for saw-tailed flies
Sprayed, sprayed and sprayed again: no effect on these saw tailed flies.
Review by light leroy / (Posted on 8/7/2012)
No More commercial Pest Control
I was paying $35 each month for pest control ($420 per year) and still seeing roaches between spraying. I fired the commercial guys and started doing it myself. It now only costs me about $3.00 per month (saving $384 per year) and there are NO bugs. I highly recommend Cyzmic CS.
Review by Saving Big $$ / (Posted on 7/2/2012)
Good product
Use it instead of commercial pest services. Works great. I apply monthly to the outside of the house, and quarterly spot treatment on the inside. No bugs!
Review by Joe Birmingham / (Posted on 5/4/2012)
Awsome product
I have seen great results from this insecticide. Spiders do not stand a chance. I highly recommend it!!
Review by Exterminator / (Posted on 3/26/2012)
Recommened it to local friends
We bought this product because we had bed bugs and it worked after two applications. We told a friend about it, he asked us to order it for him because he had fleas and he said it worked. Two other friend's have asked us to order it for them after. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!
Review by Abigail / (Posted on 3/16/2012)
Pretty good against most bugs
I live in the south so we get a lot of random bugs coming in the house for most of the year except winter. I started spraying this stuff around the outside walls and underneath the sink in my kitchen. Since doing that for a few seasons I've only seen a few spiders and some occasional roaches. All other bugs have disappeared. This is my second bottle. Hope it continues to work like it did last year.
Review by Jeff / (Posted on 3/7/2012)
I would suggest Cyamic CS again to anyone
I would suggest Cyamic CS again to anyone. I had tried an Ortho product a couple of years ago, that I mixed with water and sprayed my house for Lady Bugs and it didn't touch them. I read somewhere that you have to spray in the fall for lady bugs, so that is what I did. I sprayed the Ortho last October...still had them coming in all over the place. It drove us crazy.I had to vacuum all day long. This time I used Cyzmic CS last fall...what a difference! No more beetles!. It also took care of my spiders and roaches..great product. They were very helpful on the phone , I will use this company again.
Elizabeth Review by Liz / (Posted on 3/2/2012)
