    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra be effective if used as a spray above a drop-ceiling for varied carpet beetles?
    A

    Since Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for use indoors as a crack and crevice spray, you could potentially use it as part of a carpet beetle treatment program. We recommend adding an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) when treating for carpet beetles, such as NyGuard IGR. You could also use a ready-to-use product like NyGuard Plus which has both an insecticide and an IGR in one product. A better choice for use in the drop ceiling may be an insecticide dust, though, since it is a dry product that would not damage the tiles, and a dust lasts much longer than a spray in void spaces like a drop ceiling. Delta Dust can be used in a drop ceiling for carpet beetles and other crawling insect pests there. Or you may consider our Carpet Beetle Control Kit which includes the NyGuard Plus, CimeXa Dust, and glue traps.

    Be sure that you have located and removed the source of the infestation as well. We have more tips in our Carpet Beetle Treatment Guide here

  • Asked by Cheryl

    Q
    Can I use Tempo SC Ultra around my raised wooden garden beds that have carpenter ants?
    The wood containing the garden has the ants. Can I still grow vegetables safely in the garden if I treat the wooden surrounds with Tempo?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra can be used outside your raised garden, being careful to avoid root zones. We recommend not to spray on a windy day and cover the garden while you're treating. You could also use baits, like the Advance Carpenter Ant Bait along with the Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel in Bait Plate Stations or Ants No More Bait Stations.

  • Asked by Sarah from Beecher City
    05/26/2019
    Q
    Will Tempo SC kill rose slugs?
    A

    Tempo is not labeled to control slugs. Slugs put down a continuous layer of mucus which makes it impossible for dried deposits of insecticide sprays to reach the actual slug. You will need to use a slug bait such as Sluggo Plus or Hi-Yield Improved Slug and Snail Bait to control the slugs near your plants.

  • Asked by Kristy from Andalusia, Al
    06/20/2019
    Q
    Can I spray Tempo SC daily? I keep seeing fleas?
    A

    No, Tempo SC Ultra cannot be applied daily and is not a contact kill to be sprayed as you see insects.  Residual of the product is 30 days outside and it can take time to kill those fleas that contact a treated area.  Applying everyday will irritate the fleas more and make them more active.  If needed you would not reapply for at least 7-10 days.  We have a guide here that can help explain the most effective treatment for fleas as well.

  • Asked by Seantell from New York Ny
    07/26/2019
    Q
    Can I use roach bait, Tempo SC Ultra and an IGR all at the same time?
    A

    Yes, you can tank-mix Tempo SC Ultra and an IGR together in the same tank to apply together. You will want to be sure you don’t spray on top of where you bait and don’t bait on top of where you spray. This will cross-contaminate the bait and roaches will not be attracted to it. Please review our How to Get Rid of Roaches Guide as well as our Roach Control Kits
