  • Asked by John from Cambridge
    12/24/2015
    Q
    Can I spray in my cupboards filled with dishes and food with Tempo SC Ultra?
    The food is packaged sealed. I have fruit flies. I have sprayed the sink and walls with Tempo but they are still here.
    A

    No, Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled to be used inside of cabinets. This product should only be used around baseboards, cracks and crevices.

    For fruit flies, we do have a contact kill called PI Aerosol that can be used inside of cabinets. Be sure to take everything out the cabinets when you are spraying. Once it is dry, it is safe you to put everything back inside the cabinets. For this and any other fly, it is crucial to identify the source where the flies are breeding in order to eradicate the insects. Please see our Fruit Flies Treatment Guide for more information.

  • Asked by Debbie from Weleetka, Ok
    07/14/2015
    Q
    What is the use rate for Tempo SC Ultra when treating for bedbugs?
    A

    The recommended rates for Tempo SC Ultra is between 8 mL to 16 mL per gallon of water. For bed bugs I recommend using the maximum mix rate of 16 mL per gallon of water. Use high rate for severe infestations, faster knockdown, and longer residual. Because Tempo SC Ultra will not eliminate a bed bug infestation alone, we highly recommend one of our Bed Bug Kits. If you have any questions on treating for bed bugs, our Bed Bug Guide will help you with a step-by-step process.

  • Asked by Emily from Santa Barbara, Ca
    09/08/2013
    Q
    Termidor SC was applied around my house 6 months ago. How long before I can eat vegetables grown in that soil?
    I transplanted some chard into a planting bed next to the house 2 weeks ago. The plants look great, but will they poison us?
    A
    If you planted edible plants in any soil treated with Termidor you would not be able to eat anything from those plants.   Termidor should not under any circumstances be applied near or on anything edible and you should also not plant anything edible in soil that is treated with Termidor.  You should keep Termidor treatments at least 10 feet away from any garden.

  • Asked by Morgen from Santa Fe, Texas
    06/02/2017
    Q
    Can you Tempo SC mix with other Insecticides?
    For Example, Talstar P or the Excite that provide additional knock down, also do you dust first then spray or spray them dust? I am in southeast Texas right near the gulf and bugs are something fierce around here. The inside of our home is bug free because I am hyper vigilant, but I can't seem to win the battle outside. We have become overrun with wasps and it is making it more unpleasant to be outside than the weather already makes it. (We also have the lovely endemic mosquito, fly, and ant problem which is the reason I liked the talstar idea but didn't know if the chemicals were compatible)
    A

    Tempo SC can be mixed with an IGR or Exciter but not with another insecticide concentrate such as Talstar. We recommend spraying crevices and dusting voids after areas sprayed nearby are completely dry.

    Q
    You carry both Tempo SC Ultra and Tempo SC beta-cyfluthrin BA1012. Are they different?
    If these two products are different, how so and what are their advantages and disadvantages. Is the beta product more powerful or have a higher concentration?
    A
    Are you comparing Tempo SC Ultra to Tempo Ultra WP? If so, TEMPO SC delivers the power of a powder formulation in a liquid, and allows for more even disbursement during application. Tempo SC Ultra effectively controls a broad spectrum of indoor, outdoor, and turf and ornamental pests. Tempo SC also contains 11.8% Beta-Slathering whereas Tempo Ultra WP contains 10% Cyfluthrin. They are both great products the effectively treat all types of insects. Tempo Ultra Wp will leave a visible residue whereas Tempo SC will not.

  • Asked by Jin from W. Bloofield, Mi
    01/13/2019
    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra kill stinkbugs?
    A

     

    Yes, Tempo SC Ultra will work for stinkbugs. Stinkbugs are not listed on the label of most insecticides yet because they have only started becoming a problem for homeowners and property owners in recent years. Be sure to spray eaves, soffits, window frames, door frames, areas where cables, pipes or wires enter into the structure and any other crack, crevice or gap where insects can harbor. We also recommend starting applications in early August to prevent having the stink bugs move in with you and sealing up as many cracks, crevces and gaps as possible.

  • Asked by Ishara from Durban
    03/02/2018
    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be applied on furniture and furnishings?
    Our home was recently sprayed with Tempo SC. Some of the furnishings eg beds curtains etc may have come in contact with the the solution. Are the surfaces safe when dry or should they be discarded? How long does the residue remain on the surfaces before its completely gone? When dry does it pose a hazard to children or pets during the time the residue remains in our home? Thanks
    A

    Tempo SC is safe to use indoors when applied as a crack and crevice treatment according to the instructions on the product label. This is a residual insecticide that should not be applied to personal items like bedding or resting areas of furniture. If you think clothing or bedding may be contaminated, then you would want to wash these items before use. It is fine for people and pets to re-enter the treatment area after the application is dry.
