How does beta-cyfluthrin interrupt the tick life cycle? Does it work for both dog and deer ticks?

Beta-cyfluthrin will be applied during the spring, before peak tick season when nymphal ticks emerge and are seeking blood hosts. The risk of humans acquiring a tickborne disease from the bite of an infected tick is greatest during late spring and summer. Beta-cyfluthrin is an insecticide and acaricide which affects the nervous system and causes paralysis in insects and ticks, quickly killing all tick species including dog and deer ticks.
