    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra hurt my horse if it gets on him and not washed off quickly?
    My horse was being attacked by a couple hornets and in my panic I grabbed the sprayer with Tempo SC Ultra in it. I had sprayed his legs and belly area before I realized which sprayer I had. I haven't been able to catch him to wash him off yet. I want to find out for sure what I should expect if it is harmful to him. Thank you

    Q
    I'm treating for bed bugs. Should I shampoo the carpet and furniture? Can I spray Tempo SC Ultra on my bed?
    Do I need to rent a shampooer to shampoo the carpets and furniture after using this inside my house? Should I use this on my bed for bed bugs? Last, do I need to wash the baseboards and other areas after using this product? I have a two year old child and a pregnant wife in the house. Thanks!
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is labeled only to use as a crack and crevice spray around the perimeter of the room. It is not labeled to be used on mattresses, furniture or other items that will be coming in prolonged skin contact. You can use Tempo SC Ultra on your box-spring. We have linked the Tempo SC Ultra product label in this answer so you can review the label for complete usage instructions. We recommend using Bedlam Plus for spraying your mattress.

    Please take a look at our How to Treat for Bed Bugs Article for step by step insructions on how to do a full treatment.

    Q
    Can I use Tempo SC Ultra in my home there is a bad infestation in a rental property that I have
    Tried all the local pest control people and nothing hope this works. Treating for roaches and spiders
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is safe to spray indoors around baseboards and cracks and crevices for the pests listed on the product label

    For a roach infestation we would recommend our Roach Control Kit #1 in addition to the Tempo SC Ultra.  The Tempo will work very well for spiders as well.

    The kit contains enough of each product to effectively treat an average home but severe infestations may take several months to eliminate and may require multiple treatments. Sanitation plays a key role in eliminating roach infestations as well. Be sure to wipe out sinks to remove moisture at the end of the night, vacuum and mop under and behind appliances to remove food debris, take out trash every night, limit food consumption to one room.

    Please take a few minutes to read the hints and tips in our German Cockroach article to learn more about roach elimination.

    Q
    Is Tempo SC Ultra effective at killing powderpost beetles?
    I have powderpost beetles in some of the beams that support the hay loft in my old barn. Would Tempo SC Ultra be a good choice in treating them?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for powderpost beetles. It is recommended that you apply the product at a rate of 16 ml per gallon of water. This can be reapplied every 7-10 days as needed.

    Another option would be to use Boracare. This product will last for the life of the wood The rate is 1:1. This should only be used on raw wood.

  • Asked by William from Pocahontas, Iowa

    Q
    Can Tempo SC be tank mixed with 2-4,D products?
    A

    While you can potentially mix an insecticide such as Tempo SC Ultra with an herbicide like 2,4-D, be sure that you are needing to apply these products in the same areas before mixing and spraying. We always recommend you do a small jar test for compatability when mixing products for the first time before you mix a full tank.

  • Asked by Rita
    10/26/2017
    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra kill boxelder bugs?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for boxelder bugs and gives specific instructions for  treating them. Apply directly to boxelder bugs that have congregated around doors and windows and similar areas where they may enter structures. Apply perimeter treatment as described above. For best results, treat infested trees early in the season. 

    The treatment should begin before temperatures drop and pests start searching for places to harbor for the winter. Once the bugs have moved into your attic to overwinter you will have limited results with sprays as they will hide in cracks and crevices there and getting to all of  these is rare. Your first treatment should be in August, before the weather begins to cool, and continue through November or until the first frost of the Fall. The best treatment for overwintering pests is preventative treatment.

  • Asked by Pat from Siren, Wisconsin

    Q
    Is Tempo SC the right product for treatment of spider webs on our cabin?
    We have a lake home with rough sawn cedar and the exterior is full of white (stringy, sticky) cob webs. I'd like to spray (power wash) the siding. I want the cob webs to fall off and not return.
    A
    You could power wash the siding of your home first and when dry, you could apply Tempo SC Ultra 3ft up the siding. Tempo SC Ultra will provide control of spiders and their food source monthly on the exterior of the home and lawn. You could also apply the product around cracks and crevices, window frames and door frames. We also carry a product called Web Out Cobweb Eliminator that prevents the support of the spider webs and can be applied to indoor and outdoor surfaces. Please click on the following link for additional information on the product. Web Out Cobweb Eliminator
