    Q
    Can you spray Tempo on animals?
    I have heard of Tempo being sprayed on backs of large livestock for ticks/lice/fleas but what about small animals? Goats, sheep, dogs?
    A

    No, Tempo SC Ultra cannot be used on animals at all.

    We would recommend using something like Permethrin SFR for use on listed animals (do not use on cats). Be sure to check the label with regards to mixing ratios and how often the product can be used. Please refer to our new Animal Care Products section for more options.

  • 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.

  • Asked by Sarah from Paxton, Ma
    06/06/2016
    Q
    Can you plant a vegetable garden in the vicinity where Tempo has been previously sprayed?
    We sprayed Tempo SC about 6 weeks ago on the perimeter of our garage (about 12" out around the base area). We would like to plant a vegetable garden in this same area, not beginning until past the 12" perimeter spray, but extending out from that spray zone. Is it safe to do so at this point, will whatever residual is left have an effect on new vegetable plant root systems, making them not safe to eat?
    A

    You should not plant any vegetables that come into contact with Tempo SC Ultra. We do not recommend treating within such a close proximity to the plants. Applications should be kept far enough away from the plants as to avoid contact with the foliage, and with the root system.

    Q
    Can you mix Martins IGR with Tempo SC Ultra for fleas outdoors?
    A

    Yes, Martins IGR can be mixed with Tempo SC Ultra for fleas outdoors. It is recommended that you do treatments every 14 days.

    Archer IGR is also a very good IGR that holds up longer in conditions outdoors. It is photostable, meaning that it does not break down easily in direct sunlight.

    Q
    Is Tempo SC Ultra recommended for termites or should I go with the Termidor SC?

    Termidor is the top rated product for termite control on the market today. The only time Temp should be used is if you are directly treating a known nest. Tempo should not be used to prevent termites.

  • Asked by Jorge from Chicago, Il
    06/18/2018
    Q
    Tempo SC Ultra vs Demon WP for springtail control, is one better than the other?
    A

    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. You should read our "How To Get Rid of Springtails" article for further information.
