    Q
    What happens if you're spraying around the edges of your pool with Tempo SC Ultra and you get a little bit in the water?
    A

    You should be careful to avoid spraying Tempo SC Ultra in a way that would contaminate a swimming pool. You should not apply this or other residual insecticides directly onto pool decks or similar hard surfaces like walkways. We would recommend waiting at least 24 hours to swim if insecticide has gotten into the pool. You should also contact the emergency number on the product Safety Data Sheet if people or pets were in the area at the time.

    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.

    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
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be used to treat fungus gnats on indoor plants?

    Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to treat fungus gnats on indoor plants. Please refer to product label for specific instructions. Fungus gnats are present due to overwatering of the plants, so if the soil is allowed to dry completely, then the fungus gnats will die out.

    Q
    How long does it take wood ticks to die once a yard has been treated with Tempo SC Ultra?
    We live in the country I have never seen wood ticks so bad as they are this year. I sprayed Tempo in the immediate yard and the perimeter of the yard along the grass lines and the tree lines, is this sufficient to kill them and how long does it take before it takes effect? By the way Tempo is a great product. I've been using it for years I have no spiders and mosquitoes are kept at a minimum.
    A

    How long it takes the ticks to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the tick as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die. It can take several weeks for you to stop seeing ticks indoors because the ticks like to stay hidden which also means they could be staying out of treated areas and eggs may hatch out prolonging the infestation. We recommend doing follow up treatments every two weeks at the highest usage rate of 16 ml of Tempo SC Ultra per gallon of water

  • Asked by Jin from W. Bloofield, Mi
    01/13/2019
    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra kill stinkbugs?
    A

     

    Yes, Tempo SC Ultra will work for stinkbugs. Stinkbugs are not listed on the 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, crevces and gaps as possible.

    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be put in a pull behind tank sprayer?
    I have a pull behind tank sprayer that I use for liquid fertilizer. Can I mix and use the Tempo in this? Also if i do not use all that I mixed can I leave it in the tank sprayer to use approx. 3 months later ? I didn't know if it looses its effectiveness if it would sit mixed for any length of time?
    A
    You can apply Tempo SC Ultra using a pull behind tank sprayer. You should only mix what you can use at one time as you cannot leave Tempo sitting in a diluted solution for more than a day or two.

    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.
