    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra kill fleas in your yard?
    A

    Yes, Tempo SC Ultra can be used outdoors for flea control.  For best results, we recommend also using it along with an insect growth regulator (IGR) such as Archer IGR to help stop the fleas' reproductive cycle.  Please take a moment to look over our article on How To Get Rid Of Fleas

    Q
    How do I mix Tempo SC Ultra to kill Mosquitoes in lawn turf?
    I have a lawn spraying business and have a rig with 500 ga. Tank , diaphragm pump set at 100 pounds, 4 gallons per 1000 sq feet thanks
    A

    Per the Tempo SC Ultra Product Label: For Mosquito control, when using roughly 5 gallons of water per 1000 sq/ft, you will use 40-80 ml per 25 gallons of water. At the lower rate, this comes out to 800 ml of Tempo per 500 gallon tank. 

    An alternative product that is one of our top mosquito control insecticide concentrates, that will be typically cheaper per gallon of finished solution would be our Bifen IT. You would use 1.5-3 gallons of Bifen per 200 gallons of water. For your rig you would need at the lower rate, 3.5 gallons of Bifen.

    Q
    If I spray the pantry with Tempo SC Ultra, will this prevent any unhatched eggs to die once hatched? How long before I can put food back into the pantry?
    I have a pantry moth infestation. I have thrown away all boxed food, but kept anything sealed in plastic.
    A

    We recommend that you continue to check any items brought into the home. Anything that has been opened should be inspected and sealed in airtight containers during the treatment process. Wipe down shelving, etc. with hot, soapy water to remove any potential larvae.  Tempo SC Ultra will only leave a residual to eradicate adult pantry pests that come into the treated surfaces.  It will not take care of unhatched eggs.  We suggest that you apply the products in our Pantry Pest Kit including the pantry traps (included in the Panty Kit) to disrupt the breeding cycle.

    Q
    Which is better for bed bugs, Temprid SC or Tempo SC Ultra?
    I was told Temprid SC, the one with the photo of the bugs is the one to use for bed bugs. But this Tempro SC Ultra says it works for bed bugs too. I'm not too sure which one is better. Could you let me know WHICH one to use. I want to make sure I get rid of it ASAP and NEVER to have to worry about it again.
    A

    Temprid SC would be better to use and actually contains the same active ingredient as Tempo SC Ultra along with imidacloprid for any resistant strain issues. Please be sure to review our Bed Bug Treatment Guide for additional tips and product recommendations for eliminating this pest.

    03/13/2010
    Q
    If I spray Tempo SC Ultra in closets or closed areas, will the fumes kill carpet beetles/larva?
    A
    No, Tempo SC Ultra does not have fumes per say.  Its mode of action is a residual film where you apply the product.  If the product comes into contact with a carpet beetle or larvae, it will kill it.  If a carpet beetles or larvae walks or crawls over a surface that was sprayed with Tempo SC Ultra, then it will pick up the residual of the product on itself and die.  We do carry a product called Nuvan Pro Strips which does emit fumes and are for small enclosed areas like a closet.  You can leave the strips for a period of time and it will kill any beetles or larvae that happen to be in the closet.  Please read the product label for full instructions.

  • Asked by Pat from Texas
    12/30/2015
    Q
    Does Tempo SC Ultra contain pyrethrum or anything that kills the Mexican kissing bug?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra contains a pyrethroid called beta-cyfluthrin, which behaves similarly to natural pyrethrum, except with much longer residual activity. While the product label does not specifically list kissing bugs, this is a non-selective insecticide and would likely affect any insect that would contact it. Please see the following articles from Texas A&M for more information regarding kissing bugs in Texas:

    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.
