    Q
    Why can't I use Tempo Ultra 32 in residential areas?
    A

    The 32 ml of Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled for residential areas per the manufacturer. 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
    Will bugs get used to Tempo SC Ultra if you spray it every month?
    If so, what do you rotate the solution with? I spray for people and didn't know if bugs would start being tolerant to what I use.
    A

    We recommend rotating Tempo SC Ultra between insecticides at least once a year to prevent resistance issues.  There is a variety of products you can rotate to, Temprid SC, Suspend Polyzone, Talstar P, and Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide, just to name a few.

  • Asked by Melanie from Jersey City, Nj
    04/05/2014
    Q
    Is it okay to mix Tempo SC with Phantom or should they be sprayed in different areas?
    A
    You cannot mix Tempo SC Ultra and Phantom together. By mixing Tempo SC Ultra with Phantom you would be essentially removing the non-repellent factor of Phantom as well as the delayed reaction kill time which makes the product so effective.

  • Asked by John from Cambridge
    12/24/2015
    Q
    Can I spray in my cupboards filled with dishes and food with Tempo SC Ultra?
    The food is packaged sealed. I have fruit flies. I have sprayed the sink and walls with Tempo but they are still here.
    A

    No, Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled to be used inside of cabinets. This product should only be used around baseboards, cracks and crevices.

    For fruit flies, we do have a contact kill called PI Aerosol that can be used inside of cabinets. Be sure to take everything out the cabinets when you are spraying. Once it is dry, it is safe you to put everything back inside the cabinets. For this and any other fly, it is crucial to identify the source where the flies are breeding in order to eradicate the insects. Please see our Fruit Flies Treatment Guide for more information.

  • Asked by Debbie from Weleetka, Ok
    07/14/2015
    Q
    What is the use rate for Tempo SC Ultra when treating for bedbugs?
    A

    The recommended rates for Tempo SC Ultra is between 8 mL to 16 mL per gallon of water. For bed bugs I recommend using the maximum mix rate of 16 mL per gallon of water. Use high rate for severe infestations, faster knockdown, and longer residual. Because Tempo SC Ultra will not eliminate a bed bug infestation alone, we highly recommend one of our Bed Bug Kits. If you have any questions on treating for bed bugs, our Bed Bug Guide will help you with a step-by-step process.

  • Asked by Emily from Santa Barbara, Ca
    09/08/2013
    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.

  • Asked by Morgen from Santa Fe, Texas
    06/02/2017
    Q
    Can you Tempo SC mix with other Insecticides?
    For Example, Talstar P or the Excite that provide additional knock down, also do you dust first then spray or spray them dust? I am in southeast Texas right near the gulf and bugs are something fierce around here. The inside of our home is bug free because I am hyper vigilant, but I can't seem to win the battle outside. We have become overrun with wasps and it is making it more unpleasant to be outside than the weather already makes it. (We also have the lovely endemic mosquito, fly, and ant problem which is the reason I liked the talstar idea but didn't know if the chemicals were compatible)
    A

    Tempo SC can be mixed with an IGR or Exciter but not with another insecticide concentrate such as Talstar. We recommend spraying crevices and dusting voids after areas sprayed nearby are completely dry.
