Since Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for use indoors as a crack and crevice spray, you could potentially use it as part of a carpet beetle treatment program. We recommend adding an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) when treating for carpet beetles, such as NyGuard IGR. You could also use a ready-to-use product like NyGuard Plus which has both an insecticide and an IGR in one product. A better choice for use in the drop ceiling may be an insecticide dust, though, since it is a dry product that would not damage the tiles, and a dust lasts much longer than a spray in void spaces like a drop ceiling. Delta Dust can be used in a drop ceiling for carpet beetles and other crawling insect pests there. Or you may consider our Carpet Beetle Control Kit which includes the NyGuard Plus, CimeXa Dust, and glue traps.
Be sure that you have located and removed the source of the infestation as well. We have more tips in our Carpet Beetle Treatment Guide here.

Permethrin based products being the most popular.
Tempo SC Ultra cannot be used on any pasture area or anywhere that animals graze so we would not recommend applying in those areas. If you are referring to livestock housing areas, animals can return to the treated area once dry, normally a few hours.

Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to kill fleas using a rate of 8mL per 1000 sq ft or 12 fl oz per acre. Apply where pests have been seen or found, or can find shelter. Permitted areas include but are not limited to: home lawns, business complexes, apartment buildings, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, recreational fields, institutional grounds, athletic fields, and other landscape turf grass. In the outdoor flea treatment process it is recommended that you use two products together to get the expected results, a liquid insecticide such as Tempo SC Ultra to kill exposed fleas and an insect growth regulator (IGR) such as Archer or Nyguard that will stop immature fleas from reaching sexual maturity.
Whenever you have a moment I suggest taking a look at our guide on Flea Control, which explains how to successfully treat for fleas and the products recommended such as our Flea Kits for indoor and outdoor.
For a roach infestation we would recommend our Roach Control Kit #1 in addition to the Tempo SC Ultra. The Tempo will work very well for spiders as well.
The kit contains enough of each product to effectively treat an average home but severe infestations may take several months to eliminate and may require multiple treatments. Sanitation plays a key role in eliminating roach infestations as well. Be sure to wipe out sinks to remove moisture at the end of the night, vacuum and mop under and behind appliances to remove food debris, take out trash every night, limit food consumption to one room.
Please take a few minutes to read the hints and tips in our German Cockroach article to learn more about roach elimination.
