Tempo SC Ultra

The active ingredient in TEMPO SC Ultra is beta-cyfluthrin, which is powerful against pests with no odor and less visible residue. TEMPO SC delivers the power of a powder formulation in a liquid, and allows for more even disbursement during application. Tempo SC Ultra effectively controls a broad spectrum of indoor, outdoor, and turf and ornamental pests.

TEMPO SC comes in two sizes:

  • 240 mL (8 fl oz): makes up to 30 gallons of finished solution and treats up to 30,000 sq. ft.
  • 900 mL (31 fl oz): makes up to 112 gallons of finished solution and treats up to 112,000 sq. ft.

Tempo SC Ultra effectively controls over 100 different types of indoor, outdoor, turf and ornamental insect pests. Tempo SC Ultra is a suspension concentrate that delivers the power of a powder formulation in a liquid. It's easy to use too-less messy to handle, needs less agitation and is more evenly dispersed during application than other products. Tempo SC Ultra has no odor, is non-staining, and has a long lasting residual of up to 3 months. Some microencapsulated formulas may seem less expensive than Tempo SC Ultra- until you actually use them. But Tempo SC Ultra has a higher insect mortality rate, so you don't waste time and money on retreating areas.

Indoor Application:

For indoor applications using a hand sprayer mix 8 ml-16 ml of Tempo concentrate into one (1) gallon of water and apply as a spot, crack, crevice, and perimeter spray wherever insect pests are found to nest, forage or harbor. (always completely read and follow product label)

Outdoor Application:

For outdoor applications using a hand sprayer, mix 8 ml-16 ml of Tempo concentrate into one (1) gallon of water. Spray finished solution around perimeter of structure including door frames and window frames. For more complete instructions on outdoor applications for turf and ornamental insect pests please refer to the product label.

Tips for Use

  • For maximum perimeter control of pests with Tempo Ultra SC, treat the soil, turf and substrate adjacent to buildings.
  • Also treat the building foundation, walls, around doors, windows, and soffit areas.
  • Because mulch and pine straw make control of perimeter pests more difficult, you should rake back before application with Tempo Ultra SC, wherever possible.

    5 of 5 stars  Outstanding Product!!! NO MORE ROACHES!!!!
    By Lou in Louisiana on 02/24/2011
    Verified Purchase

    Our house had a cockroach problem for about 4 years. Tried two different national name exterminator companies, paying approximately $350 a year. Roaches would be found dead after exterminator visit, but after about 2 months live roaches would come back and I didn't understand why. I heard about this product from a retired exterminator friend and he told me how to use it. I ended my exterminator contract and decided to do my own exterminating. I mix between 8-16 mls in a 1 gallon sprayer (can get sprayer at any garden center for about $15.00). I spray completely around the foundation of my house; approx 6-8 inches high and 6-8 inches out from the house. I also spray the cracks in the windows and doors and use a lower concentration in my house. I started using this in 2006 and have not seen a live roach in my house since!! I spray 2 times a year, usually June (when roaches come out) and January. I pay approx $45.00 per bottle and have only gone through 2 bottles in 5 years. That's $90.00 in 5 years versus $350 each year. You can't beat this product!!!!

    By in Chillicothe, Mo. on 08/17/2013

    INSTRUCTIONS: for those of you who cant figure out this funny bottle.....remove cap on large section of the bottle, remove saftety cover,replace this cap but leave a slight looseness to allow for breathing. Do this for the small bottle section too. SQEEZE this large section an the small section will fill with the insecticide. Use 8ml for regular use (light infestations) use 16 ml for heavy infestations. Add this amount to a 1 gallon sprayer, and fill with water to fill line, spray per other reviewers guidance, it's all here. BED BUGS: ........ready for this......get this......had some stuff in storage at a storage unit. When we got it out we brought home bed bugs! There is NOTHING on the market but Tempo that will ELIMINATE these little blood-sucking demons. They were not biting me, only my husband, nothing we tried worked, i sprayed the mattress,boxsprings, CARPET, baseboard, walls, etc. Did every room in my house. Basically i went berserk with the sprayer. And i did it at 16ml per gallon. I did wash bedding and clothes in HOT and dried them on HIGH. I "cooked" pillows in the dyer for 30 minutes, 2 pillows at a time. JOB DONE! No more bed bugs! ANTS: We had one of those huge old satelite dishes removed from our yard which turned inside-out the largest ant hill IN THE WORLD and they were PISSED! Their "road" thru our house (1st to the bathroom then later to the kitchen) went across our NECKS when we were in bed! I had 5 products goin at once to try to get rid of the little black ants! None of them made any difference, we were INFESTED! When I sprayed for BED BUGS I "accidentally" killed what I believe seemed like 1/3 of the world's ant population! FLIES: If you have a fly problem this is your solution. We have animals and of course their poop draws flies. Clean and clean with all our might but there were still flies. I HATE FLIES..! With Tempo flies can come BUT THEY WILL DIE......bah ha ha ha HA HA! (she laughed wickedly) PRICE: I bought this product locally for $62 plus tax, never again, THIS is the place to buy this product. BEES: PLEASE don't kill bees! Get a Bee Keeper to come and get them, we need them on this planet. They'll do it in a HEARTBEAT! BUTTERFLIES: I did not spray my flower beds because I wanted to see butterflies and of course FEED BEES? REVIEWS: These reviews are the reason I used Tempo in the 1st place. Thanks for the review process!

    5 of 5 stars  Instant Results and Safe for Chickens!
    By Jamie in Southern Nevada on 10/19/2010

    We have chickens so we were trying to use whatever pet/environmentally friendly solutions we could to fight off the bugs. Some of these worked for a while but over time it got to the point where I couldn't even step onto the back patio without dodging roaches, crickets and all other assortment of pests. They were getting into our house through crevices and I just couldn't take it anymore! My dad recommended this stuff and we broke down and purchased it and sprayed the same day it arrived in the mail. We were careful to lock our chickens up before we did. In the morning we walked out onto our patio and found hundreds of dead roaches, crickets and spiders. It was really quite disgusting, but very effective. We cleaned them up before letting the chickens out so they wouldn't eat them. However after we let them out they still found several dead ones that we'd missed so we watched the chickens, fearing that they'd get sick but they never did. For the next several days we threw their eggs away until we felt like the pesticide had all passed. Now we're bug free and the chickens are fine. I highly recommend this product to anyone with bug problems, particularly if you have pets.

    5 of 5 stars  Great Stuff!
    By Mary in Gilbertsville, KY on 08/05/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I have used Tempo SC Ultra for 2 years now and I absolutely love it! It has no chemical odor, kills on contact and also has residual power. I hate spiders and spiders hate Tempo SC Ultra...That is my primary use for it but it takes care of all my insect problems. I live near a large lake and the insect population is high. I use it about once a month from March through November around the house foundation, in the garage and in the crawl space. I find lots of bugs - but they are DEAD ones! Mary Lou Gilbertsville, Ky

    By Jerril in Deer river on 06/29/2018

    Excellent product. Does what it says with the bugs. We have a log home and want to protect it. I spray at least 2 times if not 3 times for the season. I have noticed less spiders, asian beetles, mosquitos and army worms. This is a diffident item I will reorder.

    3 of 5 stars  Tempo SC Ultra
    By Jim in Portland, OR on 06/15/2018

    Order went together fast, and was delivered quickly, I would have given them 5 stars, but I had specific concerns about production dates on this product, and called them, when the lady on the phone...(very nice and helpful lady) actually went in back and checked the production date, she mentioned a date in 2018. To me that was good. When I got my product it was dated 2017. Supposedly the product does not loose power, but I had just tried to buy one at my local Coop and it was dated summer 2016.. I simply wanted to get something with a newer date. The one mailed to me, was not the one, I was told about. Everything else with this company was great... and this might have been an oversight on my order taker not making a note about my concerns over a newer bottle.

    5 of 5 stars  Very effective!
    By Angela in VACAVILLE, CA on 06/08/2018

    The area we live in is infested with roaches among other insects. It is the entire town due to rotting wood piping. Sprayed a barrier around the exterior of our home during the evening when we know the bugs come out. The next morning all around the house were a few dozen dead roaches. Happy we will be able to make several gallons of this bug spray as it will be put to good use. Tiny bottle, but mighty results.

QIs Tempo SC Ultra safe to use around dogs and in the house?


Tempo SC Ultra is considered a general use insecticide and is labeled for outside and inside use. It is odorless, and very safe to use around children or pets. The general rule is that while spraying you keep children or pets in another room or outside to play. After about one hour it should be dry and it is perfectly safe to allow kids and/or pets back in the room. This product is only strong enough to kill tiny insects, and would have no effect on animals when used correctly.

QDoes Tempo SC kill bed bugs and bed bug eggs?

ATempo SC is labeled to for bedbugs and will kill active bedbugs but it is not labeled to kill bedbug eggs. Most products cannot penetrate the exterior of the egg and are not effective at killing bedbug eggs. We do carry a couple of products that are labeled to kill bedbug eggs. Bedlam and Sterifab are labeled to kill all stages of bedbugs including eggs. You should note that even products that are labeled to kill bedbug eggs are not able to kill 100% of the eggs and you will still be required to do follow up treatments every 7-10 days until no further evidence (bites, blood stains, cast skins, fecal deposits) of bedbugs is noticed.

QDoes Tempo SC Ultra kill spiders?


Yes, Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to kill spiders.  Spiders are very difficult to control and most residual insecticides like Tempo SC Ultra will kill any spider that it is physically sprayed on, but new spiders entering the area are very difficult for any insecticide to control.  This is because spiders bodies are high off of the ground and they do not groom their legs like other insects do.  How these products mainly control spiders is that they kill the spiders prey (other insects), and if there is no food around, then the spiders will either starve to death or move on.
