    Can I spray Tempo SC on my lemon tree?
    Something is eating the leaves.

    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.

    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:
