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.
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.
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.
Turtles are considered an "exotic" animal and Tempo SC Ultra has not been tested around turtles (most have not been). We highly recommend you contact your vet for the best recommendations of products that can be used safely around your turtles.
