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.

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.

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.
If stored away from extreme temperatures, Tempo SC Ultra will have a 3 year shelf life from the date of purchase.
