    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra keep ticks out of the house?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is not a true "repellent," so it will not keep insects such as ticks away.  The only way to do this would be to seal up all cracks and crevices that allow them access inside.  Tempo can be used as a barrier spray to help kill ticks that come into contact with treated surfaces.  Please take a few moments to review our article on How to Get Rid of Ticks for more detailed information on how to implement a successful control program for this pest.

  • Asked by Tara from Stonewall, Ok
    12/30/2019
    Q
    How many ml of Tempo SC Ultra do I need for 32 ounces of water?
    When mixing this product with water I'm using a hand sprayer that is 32 ounces, so I need to know how many mL's of the product to add to 32 ounces of water.
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra is usually best mixed with 1 gallon of water since it has such low dilution rates.  You would use 8-16 ml or 0.27 to .054 fl oz per gallon of water, so for a quart sprayer (be sure it is not a trigger sprayer; it must be a pump sprayer) you would just divide that by 4 (since there are 4 quarts in a gallon), which would equal 2-4 ml or 0.07 to 0.14 fl oz.  Please refer to the product label for the rate based on your target pest.

    Q
    Can I use Tempo SC Ultra in my home safely with an asthmatic child?
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is safe to use indoors. We would not recommend spraying it when anyone but the applicator is in the room. Once the product is dry, it is safe for anyone to return to the area. If there is a concern for smell, we would recommend opening windows or turning on fans. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

  • Asked by Larry from Brewster, Ks.
    11/21/2016
    Q
    Does Tempo SC Ultra kill grain beetles in the house?
    A

    Unfortunately, Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled to treat for grain beetles. We would recommend a product like Onslaught Insecticide. Onslaught produces no odor, is easy to use, and can be used both indoors and outdoors, including food handling areas (please read directions carefully when using in sensitive environments). It is micro-encapsulated, meaning that after the product is sprayed, the active ingredient is released slowly over time, producing long-lasting residual control of insect pests.

    Q
    Will tempo ultra kill fleas inside the home?
    If so, where should this be sprayed? Carpets? How long should we notice no fleas?

    Tempo SC is more of a crack and crevice treatment. You could use Tempo SC along baseboards cracks and crevices and then use Nyguard Plus which will treat both eggs and adults. Nyguard Plus can also be applied to carpets, rugs, flooring, floors, drapes and all surfaces of upholstered furniture including under cushions. Avoid over wetting furniture and carpeting

    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra deter mosquitoes?
    If sprayed Tempo SC the on lawn, trees, patio, and surrounding vegetation, will I see less skeeters?
    A

    Tempo SC will not actually repel mosquitoes, but using it in target areas will help reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard. Tempo SC Ultra should be sprayed on the underside of leaves on trees and bushes to help control mosquitoes. Mosquitoes like to hide on the underside of leaves during the heat of the day so spraying there will help the mosquitoes come into contact with the Tempo SC.

  • Asked by Samantha from Street, Md

    Q
    Can I dump Tempo SC Ultra down into holes to kill the larvae of cicada killer wasps?
    I have cicada killers bees that have dug holes in my yard. If so how much should I pour down each hole? Help they are taking over.
    A

    You can use Tempo SC Ultra in your lawn to help control cicada killers, however you still need to dilute it at 16 mL (0.5 oz) per gallon of water and apply using a hand pump sprayer.

    Cicada Killer wasps thrive in disturbed environments, such as landscaped yards and places where bare soil is exposed. You can discourage the wasps from nesting in your yard by cutting your grass on the highest setting and by adding a thick layer of mulch to flower beds during the Cicada Killer Wasp season. These wasps do not like over saturated lawns either, so over watering during their season will help prevent them. Unfortunately, there is no fool proof way to prevent cicada killer wasps.

    We also like to let our customers know that the Cicada Killer wasps are beneficial insects that provide free pest control for a couple months each year. Cicada killer wasps paralyze and provision their burrows with other insects to feed their young.  The beneficial Cicada killer wasps, while large and intimidating to see, are mostly harmless and there have been very few reports of anyone getting stung by just being near them. In most cases where a sting was reported, the wasps were being held or molested in some way. Cicada Killer Wasp stings are also reported to be almost painless.

    Q
    What happens if you're spraying around the edges of your pool with Tempo SC Ultra and you get a little bit in the water?
    A

    You should be careful to avoid spraying Tempo SC Ultra in a way that would contaminate a swimming pool. You should not apply this or other residual insecticides directly onto pool decks or similar hard surfaces like walkways. We would recommend waiting at least 24 hours to swim if insecticide has gotten into the pool. You should also contact the emergency number on the product Safety Data Sheet if people or pets were in the area at the time.
