    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.

    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.

    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 John from Saratoga, Ca
    08/17/2017
    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be sprayed on carpets and rugs? I am treating for rodent mites in existing fabrics.
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra can not be sprayed as a broadcast over carpet, rugs or upholstered items and is not labeled for rat mites.

    The first step in treating for Rodent Mites is to remove the host animal, then cleaning and sanitizing the area. Be sure to wear gloves and protective clothing. Without removing the host, you will not be able to fully eradicate the infestation. If you are not able to locate the host, we recommend contacting a professional to inspect and remove it. 

    Vacuuming visible mites or wiping them up with a damp cloth can remove existing mites, but freeze vacuum bags to ensure the mites are dead. Controlling rodent populations in your home by using traps and sealing your home can ensure that these mites do not enter your home.

    Onslaught Insecticide and Steri-fab are two products to treat for rodent mites. Steri-Fab is a contact kill that can be used on upholstered furniture, mattresses, pillows, blankets, etc. It only kills while it is wet and will not leave any residual behind. Onslaught is a microencapsulated insecticide that can be broadcasted over carpeted areas and rugs (not furniture or mattresses) to treat for fleas, ticks, mites, etc. Vaccuming before application is crucial and to continue to vacuum every other day, if not every day. This is extremely helpful in the success of your treatment.

  • Asked by Guy from Selma, Nc

    Q
    Is Tempo SC Ultra effective in killing Harvester Ants?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra will kill ants that have come into contact with the areas treated with the product but it will not reach the nesting locations. Harvester ants should be left alone if they are not a direct threat or nuisance. They provide food for many animals, and also help distribute grass seed, and are overall beneficial. However, if control becomes necessary, you can easily get rid of harvester ants using the right professional products.Granular ant baits are the best choice to control harvester ants. Nearly any granular ant bait will work, but look for those labeled for use on harvester ants.Products with abamectin, like Advance 375A Select Granular Ant Bait, bifenthrin, like Talstar PL Granules and hydramethylnon, like Maxforce Complete Granular Bait, among many others, will all be effective against harvester ants. Always follow the label instructions carefully, but 2-5 tablespoons of granular bait scattered over the colony’s central opening should be sufficient to control the colony. For non-chemical control, destroy nests and habitat with regular mowing and other lawn maintenance.
