Yes, Tempo SC Ultra can be applied with a hose-end sprayer.
Tempo SC Ultra should NOT be applied to the lemon tree or any other edible vegetation. If the tree has been sprayed, you will want to discard any fruit. We do carry products that can be applied to edibles. Please let us know what you are targeting so that we can make a proper recommendation that will best fit your needs.
There are not any issues with applying Tempo SC Ultra and fertilizer close to together on the same day as each other.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
