I was SO excited to get this stuff because of the wonderful things I had heard about it and read about it. We live in Texas and by a lake, so we have a lot of bugs. I doubled the dose, treated everything possible outside, my entire yard and property. Also around all openings bugs could get into outside that enter into the house, inside around doors, and toilets. Since I treated I have not seen a change in bugs, has a wasp of all things in my house the next day and saw a spider crawling into my garage. I watched it to see if it would curl up and die as I had sprayed the Ultra where he was walking, and eventually squashed it with my foot. A couple days later I have and still have spiders rebuilding webs in all areas I treated. I am very disappointed in this product as I thought it was going to be my saving grace. :-(
We are sorry that you have been unhappy with your purchase, however, if you have diluted the product differently than the label instructions, then you may not achieve the results you desire. It is important to follow the label instructions for success.
Also, because Tempo SC Ultra is a residual insecticide, the active ingredient does take time to kill listed pests. A pest will not walk across the active ingredient and die immediately. Spiders, in particular, are difficult to control directly with pesticides since they do not groom like insects and their bodies are up high off the ground.
We hope that you have given the product more time to produce the results that you are expecting. It is also important to incorporate non-chemical methods such as sealing access points around windows and doors and reducing harborage sites such as dense shrubs and tree limbs adjacent to the structure.
