    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 Skye from Texas
    10/19/2017
    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra keep ticks out of the house?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is not a true "repellent," so it will not keep insects such as ticks away.  The only way to do this would be to seal up all cracks and crevices that allow them access inside.  Tempo can be used as a barrier spray to help kill ticks that come into contact with treated surfaces.  Please take a few moments to review our article on How to Get Rid of Ticks for more detailed information on how to implement a successful control program for this pest.
