    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.

    Q
    I have heard that Tempo is great for killing bedbugs and bed bug eggs. Is this true?
    Is this a powder or a spray?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is a liquid concentrate and it is labeled for eradicating adult bedbugs. Tempo also comes in a dust formulation called Tempo 1%. It can be applied to cracks and crevices. We do carry Sterifab and Bedlam that will eradicate the eggs. Below I have included the link to our bedbug treatment articles that are extremely helpful and offer a lot of detailed information for you.

  • Asked by Ruben from Lawndale, Ca
    01/18/2016
    Q
    Does Tempo SC Ultra kill baby roaches?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra will kill adult roaches. It sounds like you need to use an Insect Growth Regulator to break down that life cycle. We recommend using a Gentrol product like Gentrol IGR Concentrate or Gentrol Point Source. Both will stop pest larvae from progressing to the pupal stage of development, so the larvae die before they become breeding adults and prevents future infestations. Please take a few moments to review our article on How to Get Rid of Roaches for a successful roach control program. We do recommend applying the products from one of our Roach Control Kits.

    02/10/2016
    Q
    If I spray Tempo SC around my exterior windows, will it keep Asian beetles and boxelder bugs out?
    We have asian beetles and box elders in our house almost all year in WI. I vacuumed up 50 in our bedroom, alive in the middle of February. Will this kill them as they sneak into the house via the window cracks?
    A

    Yes, Tempo SC Ultra will work for Asian beetles and boxelder bugs. It is recommended that you spray in the areas where you have seen activity, around the perimeter of your home, around windows, doors, and around entry ways, etc. The mixing ratio is 8 ml per gallon of water. We would also recommend using a dust in the wall voids, such as Cimexa Dust, to stop them if they attempt tp come in through there.

  • Asked by Toni from Marion
    07/27/2013
    Q
    When do I vacuum if I am spraying Tempo SC on concrete floors where pet was kept?
    I was told that vacuuming the floor over and over will get rid of the fleas. Persistence is key, but will vacuuming keep the spray from working if I vacuum the floor when it dries?
    A
    Tempo SC is not labeled to be applied as a broadcast spray and when dealing with fleas on concrete floors you do not need to treat the entire floor.  Tempo SC is more of a crack and crevice treatment. You should use Tempo SC along baseboards and cracks and crevices, and those are the areas that you would also need to concentrate on vacuuming as well.  You would vacuum before the application and then every day or every other day after application.  Once the product dries it will adhere to the surfaces and vacuuming will not remove it.

    Tempo SC Ultra is safe when used as directed and should pose no long term effects if small amounts of skin contact happen but it is best to avoid skin contact during application. Per the product SDS: Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.

    I have a flower bed that is currently being treating with Tempo SC Ultra for white flies. Is it safe to plant tomatoes in this bed next spring?

    You will have to wait one complete growing season after treating your soil with Tempo SC Ultra. Per the manufacturer, it would not be safe to plant tomatoes in the spring if you sprayed sometime this year.

    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.

  • Asked by Bob
    09/09/2015
    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 spray Tempo on my small pastures to kill grasshoppers without harming the existing grass or cattle?
    A

    No, Tempo SC Ultra cannot be used in pastures or areas of food crop production.

    08/29/2015
    Q
    Why can't I use Tempo Ultra 32 in residential areas?
    A

    The 32 ml of Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled for residential areas per the manufacturer. The label is designed and geared towards barns, horse stables and animal quarters. We cannot recommend it for indoor use because the label was approved by the EPA for use only outdoors.
