    Q
    I sprayed Tempo SC Ultra 5 hours ago and I still have fleas in my house wood floor and concrete. Should I spray again?
    A

    Please keep in mind it does take time to eradicate Fleas. While Tempo SC Ultra will kill fleas that contact it, we also recommend to add in an IGR like Nyguard IGR to break down the reproductive cycle.Tempo is not an immediate kill, but can take several minutes to kill. Also, it is not labeled to be broadcast. If you need to broadcast over the floors indoors, we recommend something like the Indoor Flea kit found on our Flea Guide

    Q
    I have heard of neighbors using Tempo SC Ultra on their cattle to control flies. Will this hurt the cattle?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled for use on cattle so could harm them if used off label, it is only used in and around animal housing. Animals other than cattle or horses need to be out of the area during treatment until dry.  For fly control on cattle themselves we have many other options here.  Permethrin based products being the most popular.
