    Q
    Can I use Tempo SC Ultra in my home there is a bad infestation in a rental property that I have
    Tried all the local pest control people and nothing hope this works. Treating for roaches and spiders
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is safe to spray indoors around baseboards and cracks and crevices for the pests listed on the product label

    For a roach infestation we would recommend our Roach Control Kit #1 in addition to the Tempo SC Ultra.  The Tempo will work very well for spiders as well.

    The kit contains enough of each product to effectively treat an average home but severe infestations may take several months to eliminate and may require multiple treatments. Sanitation plays a key role in eliminating roach infestations as well. Be sure to wipe out sinks to remove moisture at the end of the night, vacuum and mop under and behind appliances to remove food debris, take out trash every night, limit food consumption to one room.

    Please take a few minutes to read the hints and tips in our German Cockroach article to learn more about roach elimination.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
