    Q
    Will Tempo SC hurt my fish or my dog?
    A
    Yes, 

    Tempo SC Ultra like any other insecticide can be very lethal to fish.  It would be advised to apply the product on a day that is not windy, and possibly even holding up a sheet of plastic on the other side of where you are spraying to protect overspray from going towards the pond.  Also, apply on a day when it is not going to rain so the product has time to dry and bond to its surface so it does not run off.  As far as your dog, this product is very safe to use around children and pets such as dogs or cats.  Just make sure to allow the product to dry before letting the dog or children back into the yard or wherever you are spraying.

    Q
    How long before rain does Tempo SC Ultra have to be applied to still be effective?
    We sprayed yesterday and it rained a few hours later. How long does it have to be before it rains for the spraying to be most effective?
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra needs to have at least 4 hours to dry properly before the rain happens. This product holds up very well in the rain. If it rained before the product had enough time to dry, it is possible that it may not be as effective.

    Q
    Can I use tempo Sc Ultra on fruit trees post harvest or on new trees that are years from bearing
    I understand about edible vegiatation
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled to be used on any fruit trees at all no matter the timing.

    Q
    Does Tempo work for wasp control?
    A
    Tempo is actually one of the top products we recommend for wasp control as well as many other pest in the "stinging pest" category. It is safe to be used in a range of areas and will help keep the population down around your home. If you want to treat a nest directly-whether in the ground or hanging-the Tempo Dust would be more appropriate for the specific application, and use the Tempo SC Ultra for the residual control on the surfaces around that they land on.

    Q
    What's the difference between Tempo SC Ultra and Suspend SC?
    I've skimmed through both product labels and looked online and can't seem to find much of a difference between the two. I purchased the pint of Suspend SC last year and just purchased the Tempo SC ULtra and was surprised to find that it's only 8 oz. (That's my fault for not looking at the size before I ordered) I was wondering what the difference between the two is though, since the Tempo costs twice what the Suspend does. I'm using the product to treat mainly for scorpions. Thank you for any info!
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra contains beta-Cyfluthrin 11.8%, whereas Suspend SC contains Deltamethrin 4.75%. These active ingredients are different, which affects the rate at which you would dilute them before application. Tempo SC Ultra may come in a smaller bottle than Suspend SC, but you need half as much to mix in a gallon of water. Tempo SC is diluted .5 oz (16mL) to 1 gallon of water and Suspend SC is diluted 1 oz to 1 gallon of water. They are both great for general insecticides, but are different in their makeup.

  • Asked by Pam from Carthage, Mississippi

    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra kill fleas in carpet?
    A
    While Tempo SC ultra is labeled for the control of fleas and would kill a flea that came into contact with a treated surface, it is only labeled to be used in cracks an crevices indoors. It cannot and should not be sprayed across carpets as a broadcast for flea control inside. You can use it as a broadcast for fleas outdoors and mix it at the rate of 8ml to a gallon of water. For treating the inside of the home for fleas, we would recommend our Indoor Flea Kit, which comes with a dust to use to get the fleas deep in the base of your carpets and crevices, as well as a broadcast spray that will not only kill, but stop the reproductive cycle of the fleas. You can review our guide on How to Get Rid of Fleas here. This includes step by step instructions, product recommendations, and How To videos for treating the inside of your home as well as your pet and outdoors.

  • Asked by Brenda
    10/28/2009
    Q
    How effective is Tempo SC Ultra for an indoor roach problem?
    A

    All of our liquid insecticides would be considered effective for an indoor roach problem.  However, most roach problems in a kitchen, which are usually German Roaches, are best eradicated using a liquid spray like Tempo SC Ultra down low near the ground around baseboards, under and behind appliances, where pipes go into the walls or below cabinets, etc; and a roach bait gel up high in the drawers and the cabinets where you normally would not spray.  You do not want to spray around dishes, utensils, and food sources, so roach bait is best used in these areas.  Plus, most roach baits will kill other roaches like a domino effect back in the walls where you cannot treat, where as liquid sprays will typically only kill the roach that actually walks over it.

  • Asked by Stacy from Pelham,ga
    07/22/2013
    Q
    I bought tempo sc ultra, is it supposed to kill roaches on contact?
    If it doesn't kill on contact do I need to try a different product?
    A
    The Tempo SC Ultra is not a contact kill and normally if you are having a roach problem you do not want a contact kill. Contact kill products only kill the roaches that you hit directly with the product when its wet, and after the product has dried it wont have any affect on other pests. The Tempo will affect any roach that comes into contact with a treated surface, even after the product is dry. You should only spray it once every 30 days for control. If you are having a heavy roach infestation, look over our article How To Get Rid of Roaches for helpful details, hints and product recommendation for controlling the colony the fastest way to eliminate them for good at the source. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
