    Q
    You carry both Tempo SC Ultra and Tempo SC beta-cyfluthrin BA1012. Are they different?
    If these two products are different, how so and what are their advantages and disadvantages. Is the beta product more powerful or have a higher concentration?
    A
    Are you comparing Tempo SC Ultra to Tempo Ultra WP? If so, TEMPO SC delivers the power of a powder formulation in a liquid, and allows for more even disbursement during application. Tempo SC Ultra effectively controls a broad spectrum of indoor, outdoor, and turf and ornamental pests. Tempo SC also contains 11.8% Beta-Slathering whereas Tempo Ultra WP contains 10% Cyfluthrin. They are both great products the effectively treat all types of insects. Tempo Ultra Wp will leave a visible residue whereas Tempo SC will not.

    Q
    Why do I have to throw my food away after spraying it with Tempo SC bug spray?
    A
    Tempo is not labeled to be sprayed on any type of edible vegetation. Consuming foods sprayed with the product could cause serious harm to you and others that eat it. You always want to follow the labels strictly for the safety of you and others, and only use  approved products for edible vegetation to avoid any health dangers. Anything edible sprayed accidentally or purposefully with the Tempo SC Ultra or other similarly labled product should be disposed of promptly.

    Q
    Termidor SC was applied around my house 6 months ago. How long before I can eat vegetables grown in that soil?
    I transplanted some chard into a planting bed next to the house 2 weeks ago. The plants look great, but will they poison us?
    A
    If you planted edible plants in any soil treated with Termidor you would not be able to eat anything from those plants.   Termidor should not under any circumstances be applied near or on anything edible and you should also not plant anything edible in soil that is treated with Termidor.  You should keep Termidor treatments at least 10 feet away from any garden.

    Q
    Why can't I use the 32ml of Tempo SC Ultra in my home?
    Are the chemical proportions different?
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra 32 Ml was developed after the 8oz and 900ml bottles. The label is designed and geared towards barns, horse stables and animal quarters. We cannot recommend it for indoor use because the label was approved by the EPA for use only outdoors.

    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra used in a gas powered back pack sprayer for mosquito control?
    Instructions don't answer this question specifically, It does say "mist" application is acceptable, but not "fog" application. Not sure what the difference is.
    A
    Yes the Tempo SC Ultra can be used in any tank mix applicator such as a hand pump sprayer, backpack sprayer, or battery/gas powered sprayer or mist blower. It cannot be used in a true fogger like a ULV or thermal fogger that requires very specific fogging concentrates like the Commander Tri-Jet fogger we carry.

    Q
    I broadcast Tempo SC in my yard at 8 oz to 25 gallons are my dogs going to be ok if they eat the grass?
    A
    When Tempo SC Ultra is mixed properly according to the product label the small amount of active ingredient left behind on the grass once the product has dried only has a toxicity level of that to kill something as small as an insect. The insect walks across it, picks up a little bit on their feet/bodies and ingests it as they groom themselves.  As long as your dogs were out of the area until it dries there should be no harm.

    Q
    How do I mix Tempo SC Ultra to kill Mosquitoes in lawn turf?
    I have a lawn spraying business and have a rig with 500 ga. Tank , diaphragm pump set at 100 pounds, 4 gallons per 1000 sq feet thanks
    A

    Per the Tempo SC Ultra Product Label: For Mosquito control, when using roughly 5 gallons of water per 1000 sq/ft, you will use 40-80 ml per 25 gallons of water. At the lower rate, this comes out to 800 ml of Tempo per 500 gallon tank. 

    An alternative product that is one of our top mosquito control insecticide concentrates, that will be typically cheaper per gallon of finished solution would be our Bifen IT. You would use 1.5-3 gallons of Bifen per 200 gallons of water. For your rig you would need at the lower rate, 3.5 gallons of Bifen.
