    Q
    Which is better for bed bugs, Temprid SC or Tempo SC Ultra?
    I was told Temprid SC, the one with the photo of the bugs is the one to use for bed bugs. But this Tempro SC Ultra says it works for bed bugs too. I'm not too sure which one is better. Could you let me know WHICH one to use. I want to make sure I get rid of it ASAP and NEVER to have to worry about it again.
    A

    Temprid SC would be better to use and actually contains the same active ingredient as Tempo SC Ultra along with imidacloprid for any resistant strain issues. Please be sure to review our Bed Bug Treatment Guide for additional tips and product recommendations for eliminating this pest.

    Q
    If I spray Tempo SC Ultra in closets or closed areas, will the fumes kill carpet beetles/larva?
    A
    No, Tempo SC Ultra does not have fumes per say.  Its mode of action is a residual film where you apply the product.  If the product comes into contact with a carpet beetle or larvae, it will kill it.  If a carpet beetles or larvae walks or crawls over a surface that was sprayed with Tempo SC Ultra, then it will pick up the residual of the product on itself and die.  We do carry a product called Nuvan Pro Strips which does emit fumes and are for small enclosed areas like a closet.  You can leave the strips for a period of time and it will kill any beetles or larvae that happen to be in the closet.  Please read the product label for full instructions.

  • Asked by Pat from Texas

    Q
    Does Tempo SC Ultra contain pyrethrum or anything that kills the Mexican kissing bug?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra contains a pyrethroid called beta-cyfluthrin, which behaves similarly to natural pyrethrum, except with much longer residual activity. While the product label does not specifically list kissing bugs, this is a non-selective insecticide and would likely affect any insect that would contact it. Please see the following articles from Texas A&M for more information regarding kissing bugs in Texas:

    Q
    I'm treating for bed bugs. Should I shampoo the carpet and furniture? Can I spray Tempo SC Ultra on my bed?
    Do I need to rent a shampooer to shampoo the carpets and furniture after using this inside my house? Should I use this on my bed for bed bugs? Last, do I need to wash the baseboards and other areas after using this product? I have a two year old child and a pregnant wife in the house. Thanks!

    Tempo SC Ultra is labeled only to use as a crack and crevice spray around the perimeter of the room. It is not labeled to be used on mattresses, furniture or other items that will be coming in prolonged skin contact. You can use Tempo SC Ultra on your box-spring. We have linked the Tempo SC Ultra product label in this answer so you can review the label for complete usage instructions. We recommend using Bedlam Plus for spraying your mattress.

    Q
    Can I use Tempo SC Ultra in hamster or guinea pig cages?
    I have problems with roaches getting into their food. I think the hamsters are eating them, but I usually find a couple roaches in the guinea pig cage. When I clean the guinea pig cage, can I spray it, let it dry, and then add clean hay/bedding?
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled for use in animal cages. We recommend that instead of spraying the cages that you treat the areas surrounding the cages to kill the roaches before they enter the cages. You can also add an Insect Growth regulator such as Gentrol IGR to the Tempo SC Ultra to help break the infestation cycle. Keeping the cages and the areas around the cages very clean will also help to get rid of the roaches.

    12/29/2016
    Q
    Will using Tempo SC on the foundation of my home monthly stop subterranean termites?
    A

    Termites are not a surface dwelling insect, so applying insecticide sprays, such as Tempo SC Ultra to the foundation will not be a work.  We have a step by step guide that will walk you through how to do your own termite trenching treatment. You can see the guide by clicking on the link here. Termidor SC would be the top product to use for the trench.
