    Q
    How many ml of Tempo SC Ultra do I need for 32 ounces of water?
    When mixing this product with water I'm using a hand sprayer that is 32 ounces, so I need to know how many mL's of the product to add to 32 ounces of water.
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is usually best mixed with 1 gallon of water since it has such low dilution rates.  You would use 8-16 ml or 0.27 to .054 fl oz per gallon of water, so for a quart sprayer (be sure it is not a trigger sprayer; it must be a pump sprayer) you would just divide that by 4 (since there are 4 quarts in a gallon), which would equal 2-4 ml or 0.07 to 0.14 fl oz.  Please refer to the product label for the rate based on your target pest.

    Q
    Can I use Tempo SC on petunias? Will it effect hummingbirds if they come to the treated plant?
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is quite gentle on plants but we always recommend that you test the product on just one plant before you spray them all. Tempo SC should not harm hummingbirds as long as you apply it when they are not actively foraging in the area.

    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra kill stink bugs?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra will work for stinkbugs.  Stinkbugs are not listed on the product label of most insecticides yet because they have only started becoming a problem for homeowners and property owners in recent years. Be sure to spray eaves, soffits, window frames, door frames, areas where cables, pipes or wires enter into the structure and any other crack, crevice or gap where insects can harbor. We also recommend starting applications in early August to prevent having the stink bugs move in with you and sealing up as many cracks, crevices and gaps as possible.

    Q
    Can I use Tempo SC Ultra in a hose end sprayer for Chiggers?
    What is the mix ratio for Tempo SC Ultra for use in a hose end sprayer? Is this a good insecticide for Chiggers?
    A
    You should apply Tempo SC Ultra at a rate of 8 ml of Tempo per 1000 square feet.  The amount of water depends on how much you need to apply the 8 ml over the area of 1000s square feet.  It can be mixed with a few gallons of water, or 10 gallons of water, just as long as the 8 ml is applied over the 1000 square feet.

    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be used to treat fungus gnats on indoor plants?
    Currently have fungus flies in some of my house plants' top soil, such as a plant consisting of swedish ivy, braided weeping fig, and wondering new.
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to treat fungus gnats on indoor plants. Please refer to product label for specific instructions. Fungus gnats are present due to overwatering of the plants, so if the soil is allowed to dry completely, then the fungus gnats will die out.

    Q
    How long does it take wood ticks to die once a yard has been treated with Tempo SC Ultra?
    We live in the country I have never seen wood ticks so bad as they are this year. I sprayed Tempo in the immediate yard and the perimeter of the yard along the grass lines and the tree lines, is this sufficient to kill them and how long does it take before it takes effect? By the way Tempo is a great product. I've been using it for years I have no spiders and mosquitoes are kept at a minimum.
    A

    How long it takes the ticks to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the tick as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die. It can take several weeks for you to stop seeing ticks indoors because the ticks like to stay hidden which also means they could be staying out of treated areas and eggs may hatch out prolonging the infestation. We recommend doing follow up treatments every two weeks at the highest usage rate of 16 ml of Tempo SC Ultra per gallon of water

    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be put in a pull behind tank sprayer?
    I have a pull behind tank sprayer that I use for liquid fertilizer. Can I mix and use the Tempo in this? Also if i do not use all that I mixed can I leave it in the tank sprayer to use approx. 3 months later ? I didn't know if it looses its effectiveness if it would sit mixed for any length of time?
    A
    You can apply Tempo SC Ultra using a pull behind tank sprayer. You should only mix what you can use at one time as you cannot leave Tempo sitting in a diluted solution for more than a day or two.

    Q
    Can I spray Tempo SC Ultra to kill potato bugs?
    A

    While Tempo SC will certainly kill potato bugs it cannot be used on edible vegetation. Instead we recommend using Bayer Advanced Vegetable and Garden Spray which contains the same active ingredient as Tempo but a different formulation which allows you to use it on edible vegetation.

    Q
    Does Tempo SC Ultra work on bird lice, or bird mites that are indoors?
    We have had sparrows that nest in my hanging baskets right outside our bedroom slider for years. This year I believe that when the babies left, the mites came inside. We almost year round have the slider open at night. I am being eaten alive.
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled for mites. 

    It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with bird mites. Have the suspected bird mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. If you do indeed have bird mites, you must first find the source of the infestation, usually a bird nest or a dead bird on or in the home. Removal of the infested nest or bird and a thorough cleanup is necessary. For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.
