    Q
    What is different with the Tempo SC Ultra in the 32ml bottle?
    I see you've previously noted that the 32ml bottle is not to be used in residential areas, and it is also marked on the label. What is different about it? There are less active ingredients (only Beta-cyfluthrin) in that size than the larger bottles and the mix rate is the same as the 240ml and 900ml. If straight Beta-cyfluthrin with a 1oz/gallon mix rate is bad for people, how is it safer for you only by adding a couple other chemicals in the mix?
    A

    All bottles of Tempo SC Ultra have the same amount of active ingredient, 11.8% beta-cyfluthrin. The inert ingredients may be different in the 32 mL bottle. We must recommend to apply the product in accordance with the product label. The 32 mL bottle is labeled to be diluted in 2 gallons of water, which would be the higher strength dilution. The dilution rate for the larger sized bottles is 8-16 mL per gallon of water, which is 1/4 to 1/2 ounce, not 1 ounce.

    Q
    Does the Tempo SC Ultra product kill fleas?
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled for indoor flea control but would do a great job outside.  It is not applied as an indoor broadcast application for the treatment of this insect or any other insect. It is applied only as a crack and crevice application indoors.  For outdoors we also recommend mixing in an IGR that will help break down the reproductive cycle. You can use something like NyGuard IGR.  For indoors we would recommend Nyguard Plus which can  be applied to carpets, rugs, flooring, floors, drapes and all surfaces of upholstered furniture including under cushions. Avoid over wetting furniture and carpeting.

    I've experience an abundance of rain. Does the ground near the home need to be completely dry before applying?

    It states directly from the label to apply this product in calm weather when rian in not predicted for the next 24 hours that will help to ensure that wind or rain does not blow or wash pesticide off the treatment area.

  • Asked by Pat from Siren, Wisconsin

    Q
    Is Tempo SC the right product for treatment of spider webs on our cabin?
    We have a lake home with rough sawn cedar and the exterior is full of white (stringy, sticky) cob webs. I'd like to spray (power wash) the siding. I want the cob webs to fall off and not return.
    A
    You could power wash the siding of your home first and when dry, you could apply Tempo SC Ultra 3ft up the siding. Tempo SC Ultra will provide control of spiders and their food source monthly on the exterior of the home and lawn. You could also apply the product around cracks and crevices, window frames and door frames. We also carry a product called Web Out Cobweb Eliminator that prevents the support of the spider webs and can be applied to indoor and outdoor surfaces. Please click on the following link for additional information on the product. Web Out Cobweb Eliminator

  • Asked by Laura from Stamford, Ct
    01/10/2016
    Q
    Can I use Tempo SC Ultra without water or do you have it in powder form?
    And if I so, in how long can my kids and I can go back to the room?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra cannot be used without water; it is a liquid concentrate. Tempo Ultra WP is a wettable powder but also needs to be diluted in water. If you need a powder/dust insecticide you can apply without diluting, you can use something like Tempo 1% inside wall voids. Once you're finished applying it inside wall voids or as instructed on the label and the area is cleaned up from any residue, you and your kids can be back into the area.

  • Asked by Ishara from Durban
    03/30/2018
    Q
    Is there residue transfer of Tempo SC Ultra?
    I have had Tempo SC sprayed 1 month ago. I know the residue is safe when dry. Will the residue contaminate other items eg kitchen sink, crockery, cutlery, food containers clothes etc if the mops and cloths used to clean areas of the house that were treated are washed in the sink? If so will regular soap, dishwasher, washing machine remove the residue or do I need a chemical strength cleaner?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra should not be applied to these items and the residual left behind would not be picked up by items that contact a treated area. Contaminated items or surfaces should be washed thoroughly using an appropriate cleaner for those items.

  • Asked by Bernadette from Reading Pennsylvania
    09/25/2014
    Q
    Is Tempo SC Ultra good for bed bugs? Do you make a product for bed bugs? If so, please recommend.
    A

    Yes, Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for bedbugs. You will use 16 mL per gallon of water. You will spray this around the baseboards and cracks and crevices in the rooms with bedbug activity every two weeks.

    We would also recommend using Bedlam on the actual mattress and box spring. You will spray the seams and tufts where the bedbugs reside. You can also spray this on your headboard and bed frame. Bedlam can be used inside drawers, on the carpet, etc. You will do this every two weeks until you do not see activity for 30 days.

    As a preventative, Cimexa Dust is very good to use inside the wall voids. You will do a few puffs behind each outlet and/or light plate with a hand duster. This dries the bedbugs out when they walk across it. Only do 1-2 puffs. This is enough dust to settle on the floor. You want them to walk across it.

     

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Can you spray Tempo on animals?

  • Asked by Kimberly from Newark, Oh
    03/10/2017
    Q
    How much Tempo SC Ultra would you use to mix in a 26oz spray bottle? Is it safe to apply with birds in another room?
    A

    Per the product label, Tempo SC Ultra must be mixed at the rate of 8-16 mL per gallon of water.  It is not really designed to be diluted into a smaller amount than that. 

    If there are birds in the area that you will be treating, we recommend that you consult a vet before applying any products, as birds can be sensitive to many pesticides.
