    Tempo SC Ultra should not pose any staining to the vinyl siding. If mixed and applied correctly there should not be an issue using it for stinkbug control. We recommend testing a small, inconspicuous area first to be sure.

    Q
    What is the residual for Tempo SC Ultra?
    I have seen from previous posts that Tempo SC Ultra lasts 30 days outside and 90 days inside. In areas that have been applied (cracks and crevices or areas that can't be washed) does the residue last longer if the area is not washed regularly?
    A

    Q
    Is Tempo SC Ultra safe to use around someone on oxygen?
    A

    We would not recommend spraying insecticides while other people, children, or pets are in the immediate area, especially anyone with sensitive health concerns. Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to be used in hospitals as a spot or crack and crevice treatment, but the label does not specify patient rooms. We recommend consulting your physician regarding what is appropriate. You can view the Safety Data Sheet here.

  • Asked by Jorge from Chicago, Il
    06/18/2018
    Q
    Tempo SC Ultra vs Demon WP for springtail control, is one better than the other?
    A

    Demon WP Insecticide and Tempo SC Ultra are both very effective insecticides and while they may kill springtails that come in contact with a treated area, neither are specifically labeled for springtails. We would recommend using Talstar P as your perimeter spray and we also suggest incorporating a granules like Demand G Granules. Eliminating springtails can take time. Springtails indicate that there is a moisture issue because they breed in walls or under slabs where a moisture issue may exist. Typically, pesticides alone will not take care of a springtail problem. It is required to fix whatever moisture issue is causing the problem. You should read our "How To Get Rid of Springtails" article for further information.

  • Asked by Rick from Pierre, Sd
    07/17/2018
    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra hurt woodwork or wood floors?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled to be used as a broadcast spray indoors across floors.  When spraying around the baseboards, it should not leave behind any residue once dry or cause harm to the part of the floor that meets the baseboard.  A fine spray is all you need, don't apply to the point of puddling or run off.  If you have any concerns about your particular woodwork or wood floors, it is always recommended to do a small patch test on an inconspicuous area first.
