    Q
    Which product would be best for flea and tick control indoors and out, Tempo SC or Demand CS?
    A

    Demand CS is not labeled to use indoors for flea control and Tempo SC can only be used as a crack and crevice or spot treatment for fleas indoors.  Either product would be a great choice for outdoor flea control. Most customers use a product such as Ultracide for indoor flea control and a then use a liquid concentrate like the Demand or Tempo outdoors. If you want to use the same product for both indoor and outdoor flea treatments you should consider purchasing our Outdoor Flea Kit. This kit contains Onslaught which is a broad spectrum insecticide which can be used as a broadcast spray for both indoor and outdoor infestations. The kit also contains Martins IGR which will help break the breeding cycle of the fleas for long term control.

    Q
    Can I spray my clothes with Tempo SC Ultra?
    If i spray this on clothes hanging in the closet do I need to wash everything before wearing again? I'm trying to kill bedbugs and want to spray everything. If sprayed around toddler toys do they need to be washed really good ?
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra cannot be sprayed on clothes or toys for any reason. Tempo SC can only be sprayed in cracks, crevices or voids indoors when treating for bedbugs. Bedbugs and bedbug eggs can be killed with high heat (120-140 degrees). Clothes should be run through the dryer for about 30 minutes on high heat to kill any bedbugs or bedbug eggs. Stuffed animal toys can also be put through the dryer. All other toys should be thoroughly washed in very hot water to kill the bedbugs/eggs or discarded. Please take a few minutes to review the Tempo SC Ultra product label to insure that you are only spraying the product on approved areas.

    Q
    Can I spray a 12 - 15' Linden Tree directly with Tempo SC Ultra for control of Japanese Beetles?
    If so, what is the mixing ratio?
    A
    Yes, Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for adult Japanese beetles. The mixing ratio is 45-160 ml (1.5 to 5.4 oz) per 100 gallons of water. This would be .45 ml to 1.6 ml per gallon of water. You will need to use the higher rate for severe infestations, faster knockdown and longer residual.

  • Asked by Miranda from Marlow, Ok
    06/15/2018
    Q
    What is the difference between the Tempo SC Ultra and Tempo Ultra WP?
    A

     

    Tempo SC Ultra is a  concentrated water based liquid insecticide that will need to be mixed with water. Tempo Ultra WP is a wettable powder that is also mixed with water. Both products contain the same active ingredient and will provide similar results. Tempo Ultra WP will do a better job on porous surfaces as it will stay on the surface and be more available to insects. Tempo SC Ultra, on the other hand, will dry clear and will not leave behind the powdery residue that Tempo Ultra WP can.

    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra harm my bearded dragon?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is safe when used as directed on the product label.   The bearded dragons just need to be out of the area while it is being sprayed, and until the product dries.  Do not apply to areas in and around any cages.  This product is only strong enough to kill small insects, and would have no effect on animals when used correctly.
