Tempo Ultra WP

Tempo Ultra WP is a pyrethroid-based insecticide that is highly effective at controlling a broad range of insect pests, especially those found on turf and landscape ornamentals. Tempo Ultra WP provides a fast knockdown and kill and leaves a residual that keeps killing insects for up to 30 days. Tempo WP has a no odor and leaves a clear, almost invisible residue.

Commercial Use Only

How Tempo Ultra WP Works

Tempo Ultra WP is a wettable powder concentrate that is mixed with water and applied with a sprayer such as the Chapin Premier 1 gallon hand pump sprayer. Once applied according to the label directions, Tempo Ultra WP dries and leaves a residual of active ingredient for pests to contact for 30 to 90 days. The active ingredient in Tempo Ultra WP is Cyfluthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid that attacks the central nervous system of target pests. Though Tempo Ultra WP is tough on insects, it is very gentle on people and pets when used correctly.

Target Insects

A wide variety of crawling, flying, and wood-infesting pests for indoor and outdoor applications, as well as insect pests of trees, landscape ornamentals, and residential and commercial lawns; general household pests, pantry and stored product pests, and food processing pests.

INSECTS CONTROLLED: ambrosia beetles, ants (except pharaoh), aphids, armyworms, azalea caterpillars, bagworms, bedbugs, bees, beetles, black vine weevil, black turfgrass ataenius, bluegrass billbug, boxelder bugs, bristly rose slugs, budworms, cadelle beetles, California oakworms, cankerworms, carpet beetles, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, casebearers, centipedes, chinch bugs, chiggers, cigarette beetles, clothes moths, clover mites, cluster fly, cockroaches, confused flour beetles, crickets, cutworms, darkling beetles, deathwatch beetles, dermestid beetles, drugstore beetles, earwigs, elm leaf beetle, elm spanworms, false powderpost beetles, fire ants, firebrats, fleas, flea beetles, flies, fruit flies, fungus gnats, gnats, granary weevils, grasshoppers, ground beetles, gypsy moth larvae, hide beetles, hornets, hyperodes weevil,  indian meal moths, Japanese beetles, june beetles, lace bugs, larder beetles, leaf-feeding caterpillars, leaf skeletonizers, leather beetles, lesser grain borers, lesser mealworms, mealworms, mealybugs, Mediterranean flour moths, merchant grain, midges, millipedes, mole crickets, mosquitoes, moths, old house borers, oleander moth larvae, orchid weevil, pear psylla, peppertree psyllid, phorid flies, pillbugs, pine shoot moths, pine tip moths, plant bugs, powderpost beetles, red flour beetles, redhumped caterpillars, rice weevils, sawfly larvae, sawtoothed grain beetles, scale insects, sciarid flies, scorpions, silverfish, sod webworms, sowbugs, spiders, spittlebugs, striped cucumber beetles, striped oakworms, tent caterpillars, thrips, ticks, tussock moth larvae, walnut caterpillars, wasps, webworms, whiteflies, termites (above ground subterranean, formosan, and drywood), warehouse beetles, yellow jackets, yellownecked caterpillars

Target Uses

Tempo Ultra WP is a superior choice among outdoor perimeter treatments because of its rapid knockdown of a broad spectrum of insects. Equally effective at controlling structural, ornamental and turf bugs, Tempo can also be used in food-handling establishments.

Tempo Ultra WP leaves a white powdery film that may be visible on darker surfaces. For applications where this is a concern, consider using a liquid concentrate, such as Tempo SC Ultra.

Application Instructions

To mix Tempo Ultra WP: Fill sprayer tank ½ full with water. Add appropriate amount of Tempo Ultra WP, then allow 1-2 minutes for product to dissolve. Stir, agitate, or shake applicator tank to mix. Finish filling applicator tank with water and agitate again before use. If tank rests for 30 minutes or more, agitate again to ensure adequate mixing and proper application.

Use Tempo Ultra WP as a general surface, spot, mist, or crack and crevice treatment in and around buildings and structures, or as a broadcast application to turf and foliar application to ornamental plants.

  • Reapply after 7 to 10 days as needed. For turf, do not apply more than 6 times per year.
  • 1 Tempo Ultra 420 gram jar yields about 21-42 gallons. (Enough to treat the average home and a lawn 5-10 times)
  • 1 Tempo Ultra 420 g jar treats up to 84,000 square feet outdoors

Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios for Tempo Ultra WP:

  • 2 scoops (10 g)/gal. of water – 0.025% -- maintenance or prevention, more frequent applications; turf pests
  • 4 scoops (20 g)/gal. of water – 0.05% - severe infestations, faster knockdown, longer residual; bees, wasps, yellow jackets, hornets; wood-infesting pests; fire ants
  • For turf pests – Use 1-2 scoops (5-10 g)/1,000 square feet or 7.7-15.4 oz. per acre
  • High volume applications for ornamental pests – Use 55 to 190 g/100 gal. of water

Use in the Following Areas:

Apply where pests have been seen or found, or can find shelter in and around buildings and structures; on residential, commercial and recreational areas of turf; on ornamentals in landscapes and interior plantscapes; including, but not limited to, apartment buildings, bakeries, bottling facilities, breweries, buses, cafeterias, candy plants, cereal processing and manufacturing plants, frozen food plants, grain mills, granaries, non-commercial greenhouses, hospitals, hotels, houses, industrial buildings, kitchens, laboratories, livestock housing, pet kennels, manufacturing establishments, mausoleums, meat and produce canneries, nursing homes, pickle factories, poultry houses, processing and packing plants, restaurants, schools, spice plants, stores, warehouses, wineries, transportation vessels (such as aircraft, buses, trucks, trailers, rail cars, marine vessels; food/feed and non-food areas of food and feed handling establishments; landscape and recreational turfgrass such as home lawns, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, recreational fields, athletic fields, and institutional grounds; trees, shrubs, foliage plants and flowers in outdoor landscaped areas and interior plantscapes


Use 10-20 grams of Tempo (measuring scoop is included) per gallon of water in a hand sprayer. Use the higher concentration (20 grams) for severe infestations, faster knockdown and longer residual and also for control of bees, wasps, yellow jackets and hornets. Apply spray onto baseboards, window frames, door frames, and cracks and crevices where insects are known to harbor (such as under the refrigerator, sink, cabinets, or stove, around pipes, etc.). You may also spot treat floor areas under furniture or in closets and storage areas. Do NOT treat entire floor area. Do NOT use as a space spray.

  • Reapply every 7 to 10-days if needed. Tempo Ultra WP will last up to 90 days indoors.

Pantry and stored product pests – Clean area before treating. Remove and destroy infested food. Discard food accidentally contaminated with spray. For cupboards, sheling, or food storage areas: remove utensils, exposed food, shelf paper, and other items before spraying. When dried, cover shelves with clean paper before replacing items.


Use 10-20 grams of Tempo (measuring scoop is included) per gallon of water in a hand sprayer. Use the higher concentration (20grams) for severe infestations, faster knockdown and longer residual and also for control of bees, wasps, yellow jackets and hornets. Apply spray in a 3 ft wide band around the base of structure and also around door frames, window frames and soffits. Spray a band 3-10 ft wide around the structure on the ground. Spray cracks and crevices around foundation where insects may harbor.

Cluster Flies and similar over-wintering pests – Treat in late summer or fall, just before flies begin looking for winter shelter. Spray siding, eaves, around windows and doors, window screens and attics. To help reduce infestations, treat cracks and crevices, attics and other indoor winter hiding places. Note: Pests may appear during warm winter spells, while snow is still on the ground.

Scorpions – Treat around piles of firewood and other areas where scorpions may hide. When possible, remove piles of materials that can harbor pests. Apply a perimeter treatment.

Turf and ornamental pests – Use an accurately calibrated sprayer. Apply uniformly. Apply when pests first appear. Reapply as needed based on pest reinfestation. Do not treat more than 6 times per years. Consult your Cooperative Extension for specific timing in your area.

    5 of 5 stars  Tempo Ultra WP
    By Rick in Yucaipa, CA. on 04/04/2011
    Verified Purchase

    This is my second purchase of Tempo WP. I was paying $70.00 a month for a pesticide service to spray for bugs and I finally asked the guy; What do I get to do this myself because the stuff you buy from Lowe's or Home Depot is crap and it is not as strong as this stuff. One jar of Tempo WP has done great around one house that is 2400 sq ft and another at 2200 sq ft and inside and outside of a 2200 sq ft garage. All this I spray liberally and it has lasted me 1 year. Everything and I mean everything dies and is no match for this product. This product kills Black Widows, funnel spiders, wolf spiders, brown recluse spiders, all types of ants, centipedes, millipedes, earwigs, springtails, silverfish, just to name a few. Do not drench the area that you want to treat; just get it wet enough to where you can see a gloss from it. Do not spray around your family pets. Once this wettable powder is dry you are good to go. Once you spray thoroughly, within a day or two you are going to see so many dead bugs, you didn't know you had. I have saved sooo much money with this product and will not buy from any other site except www.domyownpestcontrol.com. They have extremely fast shipping, I live in CA and I had my product within 3 to 4 days. I highly recommend this for ALL your pesky bug needs.

    By Merlene in Grand Prairie, TX 75050 on 06/09/2010
    Verified Purchase

    We recently purchased a house in the country and could not believe how many wasp and dirt dobbers and just bugs in general that lived in the country, so we asked a professional about what to use and he said this is the best. We have used it only 2 times to really get rid of the bugs on the patio and to keep the dirt dobbers from building their nest on the patios and this stuff is THE BEST. It really has worked and arrived in just a couple of days after ordering it, since then we have purchased other items from this same company. Wish I had found out about this place a long time ago.

    Well I am a first time buyer and they say Fast Shipping, they are not playing. I ordered on Friday, got it on Monday - wow talking about fast shipping. I use the Tempo Ultra WP, I follow the instructions, and I can be honest about this the roaches went crazy. This is better than any thing that you buy in Home Depot or any other store. If you are going to spend money on junk that does not work, better buy this product.  Yeah, it costs more than a can of roach kill, but it works. Thanks!

    5 of 5 stars  This stuff works!
    By David in Delaplane, VA on 01/14/2011

    This is a follow up after the season. I used Tempo Ultra extensively in August-October. There were hordes of Stinkbugs, then piles of dead stinkbugs. This stuff works! Last year we killed between 50 and 100 stinkers each day inside the house from mid October until April. No exaggeration. This year we have found 10-15 total so far. That is a huge difference. I have recommended this product to everyone who has asked, and everyone asks…I ought to get a commission. They are an enormous problem here, affecting everyone. Anything that kills large numbers at once attracts interest. I have also passed on your website as a good source.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Quit being a PEST
    By Tom in Maricopa, Arizona on 11/26/2017

    I've been here in Arizona for 3 years, I notice that Ants started taking over my yard and inside the house, I called my pest control, for 3 years they could not take care of the problem, I was spending a lot of cash on Ant & Roach spray, still nothing seemed to kill the little pest, I tried everything and I mean everything, results nothing. A friend told me about this product called Tempo Ultra, I found the pest control on the web, I ordered 2 small treatments and took a chance on this product, I received my order within 10 days I couldn't wait to try it, I spray all around my house and on the back patio where they seem to have their home base, I woke up the next mourning and rushed out the door to see if there was any results, to my surprise they were gone plus anything else that wanted to move in. It's been 30 days since I sprayed and still their all gone inside and out of my house. Would I recommend Tempo Ultra, you bet I will, I like this product so well that I ordered a large bottle of Tempo Ultra!

    I can't say enough about this product... I have purchased 3 other times from Do My Own and it kills everything... three scoops of powder to a gallon of water and once it reaches full strength in a few days..... look out... everything dies.

    By David in Kirksville Mo on 10/27/2016

    Used as directed on the container mixed up 3 gallons and sprayed around my house under my house and in my garage. Thought this will rid my house of the spiders but alas we have spiders still and they are in all of the places I sprayed seems like it acted more like an attractant than a pesticide. I don't recommend this product to anyone

QWhat is the difference between Tempo Ultra WP and Tempo SC Ultra?
I live in the country and need something for general bug control, but mainly for wasp.

ATempo SC Ultra is a  concentrated water based liquid insecticide that will need to be mixed with water  while the Tempo Ultra WP is a wettable powder that will need to be mixed with water. Both products contain the same active ingredient and will provide similar results. Tempo WP will do a better job on porous surfaces as it will stay on the surface and be more available to insects. Tempo Sc on the other hand will dry clear and will not leave behind the powdery residue that Tempo WP can.

QHow do I mix Tempo Ultra WP correctly?
Tempo Ultra WP says to mix 3 scoops/3 gal water then says 2 scoops/ gal water which would be 6 scoops/3 gal water for a 0.025% solution . confusing table 1

QCan you explain the difference in the two active ingredients or the pros/cons of both Cyper WP and Tempo Ultra WP?
I see you often recommend Cyper WP (Cypermethrin 40.0%) for spider problems. The reviews on Tempo Ultra WP (Cyfluthrin 10%) seem to be very good regarding spider and scorpion killing power. Can you explain the difference in the two active ingredients or the pros/cons of both?


Both Tempo WP and Cyper WP contain active ingredients that are synthetic pyrethroids. Tempo WP and Cyper WP are both excellent choices for scorpion and spider control and will provide very similar results. We often recommend Cyper WP over other WP products because our customers are not only looking for a quality product but they want it at the lowest price point possible.
