    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra kill hookworms in our yard?
    A

    Unfortunately there is not a product on the market that is labeled or recommended for hookworms. While some insecticides that are labeled for turf or lawn infesting insect may work, there has not been enough research to add hookworms to the product labels. We recommend that all animals be kept out of the contaminated area for at least 1 year (during warm spring/summer months, longer during cool winter/fall months) and all feces be removed. Keeping the animals out of the contaminated area for at least 1 year should help control the infestation pattern. It is also important to remove feces from the new latrine area to avoid another infestation. Another option is to remove the contaminated soil and replace if you cannot keep out for 1 year

  • Asked by Jessica from Cave In Rock Il
    08/08/2013
    Q
    Will Tempo harm fowl such as chickens or quineas if they are on the treated area after the spray has dried?
    I know that fowl peck the ground and eat bugs however I have a serious flea problem and my guineas are not yet old enough to be turned out. I want to spray my yard and barn
    A
    Unless the chickens are consuming the Tempo SC directly there should be no effect on the bird or their eggs. Once the product has dried, it only has a toxicity level of that to kill something as small as an insect. The insect walks across it, picks up a little bit on their feet/bodies and ingests it as they groom themselves. For there to be even a chance of your chicken having any effect from the Tempo on the bugs, they would have to eat at least their weight worth in grasshoppers that have died from it.  All animals need to removed from the treatment area while applying until the application dries.

    Q
    What is the residual for Tempo SC Ultra?
    I have seen from previous posts that Tempo SC Ultra lasts 30 days outside and 90 days inside. In areas that have been applied (cracks and crevices or areas that can't be washed) does the residue last longer if the area is not washed regularly?
    A

    The indoor residual for Tempo SC Ultra is approximately 90 days and the outdoor residual is approximately 30 days.  Even if it has been applied in areas that are undistrurbed, the residual won't last any longer.

    09/08/2015
    Q
    If I spray my yard for mosquitoes, should Tempo SC Ultra work for 3 to 4 weeks? What if I mow my grass in this time?
    A

    We recommend that you mow your lawn 1-2 days prior to applying the Tempo SC Ultra for mosquito control. You will also want to focus on applying the product to the undersides of non-edible tree leaves and shrubs. You can apply also around window and door frames, the siding and cracks and crevices for control. You will mix 8-16 ml per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft. It does have an outdoor residual of 4 weeks.

  • Asked by Hpmoney from Savannah, Georgia
    01/29/2017
    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be mixed with Talstar P?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra and Talstar P are both synthetic pyrethroid insecticides that work very similarly, so there really is no reason to mix these two products together at the same time. You could use them in rotation with each other to prevent insect resistance, but we would not recommend using them at the same time. Using these together could actually create a repellent effect and cause insects to avoid the treated areas instead of contacting the active ingredient.

  • Asked by Anselmo from Ray City

    Q
    How long does it take Tempo SC Ultra to start killing German roaches?
    A

    The exact time it takes Tempo SC Ultra to kill will depend on several factors, such as the age and health of the roach and how long it spent in contact with a treated surface.  It is often helpful to use a roach bait gelalong with an insect growth regulator (IGR) in addition to an insecticide when treating for roaches for complete control.  You may want to take a look at our article on How To Get Rid Of Roachesfor more information.
