    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 Ross from Small Town, Ia
    05/14/2013
    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be mixed with Lawn Herbicide?
    I want to spray for both weeds and bugs in one pass. If using Speed Zone or Trimec 992 and a Surfactant will it diminish the results or have an adverse affect on the herbicide?
    A
    Sometimes herbicides and insecticides can be mixed depending on the molecular makeup of the products. Since both Speedzone and Trimec 992 are made by PBI Gordon we recommend contacting them at 800-821-7925 to verify that these products can be mixed with Tempo SC Ultra. As far as the surfactant, it will not make a difference. You can add a surfactant to both herbicides and insecticide for extra sticking and penetration power.

  • 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.

  • Asked by Ann from Tn

    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.

    06/12/2017
    Q
    Can you mix Bifen IT and Tempo SC Ultra together for spraying? Would this mixture be effective?
    A

    The products should not be mixed together as you will not gain any benefits by doing so.  In fact, using too much could cause resistance as they are both synthetic pyrethriods.

  • 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.
