    Q
    Does Tempo SC Ultra work on flies
    MY house has become infested with flies. My friend used this product for the Asian beetle and said she never saw another bug after that. She gave me the bottle to try to get rid of my fly problem.
    A
    Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for flies. It is important for you to read the product label and follow the directions for indoor applications for fly control. We urge you to get the flies identified so that you can figure out the source so you can stop this pest from gaining entry to your home in the future. You can contact your local cooperative extension office and ask to speak to the entomologist on staff to request an insect identification.

    Q
    Will Tempo SC Ultra kill wood eating termites ?
    A

    Tempo SC Ultra will kill termites above ground but will not replace a soil application or wood treatment. When treating for subterranean termites you would want to do a soil treatment with a termiticide like Termidor SC. If you are treating for drywood termites we recommend using something like Bora-Care to treat raw wood. Please look over our guides on Subterranean Termites and Drywood Termites for more information.

    residue? if i don't have to wipe it off, will it still control/kill bedbugs?

    Tempo SC Ultra has no odor and leaves less residue, meaning it is not necessary to wipe away Tempo after it has dried. In the event that Tempo is over sprayed or sprayed in an undesirable area, it can be cleaned with warm soap and water.

    Q
    Which product is better between Tempo SC and Bifen IT?
    Which product is better for ladybugs, ants, spiders, scorpions, roaches, mosquitoes, and flies?
    A

    Bifen IT and Tempo SC Ultra are both very good products. The biggest difference between them is that they have two different active ingredients. They are both great insecticides and can be alternated so that there is no pest resistance built up.

    Q
    Is Tempo SC Ultra safe to use around someone on oxygen?
    A

    We would not recommend spraying insecticides while other people, children, or pets are in the immediate area, especially anyone with sensitive health concerns. Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to be used in hospitals as a spot or crack and crevice treatment, but the label does not specify patient rooms. We recommend consulting your physician regarding what is appropriate. You can view the Safety Data Sheet here.

    Q
    Can Tempo SC Ultra be mixed with Lawn Herbicide?
    I want to spray for both weeds and bugs in one pass. If using Speed Zone or Trimec 992 and a Surfactant will it diminish the results or have an adverse affect on the herbicide?
    A
    Sometimes herbicides and insecticides can be mixed depending on the molecular makeup of the products. Since both Speedzone and Trimec 992 are made by PBI Gordon we recommend contacting them at 800-821-7925 to verify that these products can be mixed with Tempo SC Ultra. As far as the surfactant, it will not make a difference. You can add a surfactant to both herbicides and insecticide for extra sticking and penetration power.

  • Asked by Lena from Seattle, Washington
    11/08/2015
    Q
    Can I mix Tempo SC Ultra with Transport Mikron?
    Is it safe to combine these two insecticides?
    A

    You should not mix Tempo SC Ultra and Transport Mikron together, and you should never mix 2 insecticides together unless both labels specifically state they are safe for mixing with the other product you plan to use. Insecticides are very specifically formulated to work with certain ratios and adding any other chemical to the mix can offset the ability of the product to work properly and the way it was designed. Specifically speaking regarding Transport and Tempo; Transport is a non-repellent insecticide and Tempo is not. Therefore, mixing the two will completely take away the non-repellency of the Transport, wasting the product and its intended use. 

    You may also contact our Customer Service team for assistance with your specific situation; we are happy to make recommendations on what produts and applications will work best for your target insects. You may reach us at 866-581-7378 M-F 9a-5p EST.

    Q
    Should I use a foam residual spray for wasps around my picnic table?
    I have a cedar picnic table that the wasps seem to like to collect in the nooks and crannies and stay hidden until one sits down and out they come. Have done this for several years now. I am thinking about some sort of foam insecticidal spray with residual activity and adherence where sprayed, something like an expanding foam. Is there such a product and do you have any?
    A

    It sounds like the wasps may be in the ground under the table rather than on the table itself, unless you can see a specific place where there is a small nest on or under the table. We would not recommend using any insecticide where you sit or eat on a picnic table. Tempo SC Ultra would be a great choice for the ground around the table. You can also use a knockdown spray such as Wasp Freeze to spray flying, stinging insects in the immediate area as you see them.

  • Asked by Margie from Fredericksburg, Iowa
    03/09/2017
    Q
    I still have carpenter ants inside the house even, after 2 treatments with Tempo SC Ultra. What should I do?
    A

    While Tempo SC Ultra will kill any carpenter ants that come into contact with a treated area, it will not eradicate an ant colony.  We would recommend our Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit.  The kit contains professional pest control products to control carpenter ants found inside structures, including Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel and Maxforce Complete Granular Bait, along with bait plate stations that allow you to apply and monitor both baits simultaneously. You will also get Temprid Ready Spray, a ready-to-use version of the popular Temprid SC that contains two active ingredients for both initial knockdown and residual non-repellent activity.
