    Q
    What is the difference between Temprid SC and Temprid FX?
    I need to know which one is better for bed bugs and roaches thanks
    A

    Temprid FX Insecticide is the exact same product as the best selling Temprid SC however, there are many new changes. Same suspension concentrate as the SC, the "FX" simply stands for flexibility. Foliar application is now included on the label. With this foliar application, it is highly effective in controlling honeydew feeding ants, and is a great tool against stink bugs in the late summer and fall. Mosquitoes are now on this label as well. They have also added protection for polinators on the FX label.  So either product would be an excellent choice for bed bugs and roaches.

    Q
    Is Temprid FX Insecticide a repellent?
    Beta cyfluthrin- a repellent is a nerve pesticide that kills.
    A

    No, Temprid FX Insecticide is not a repellent.  With its two active ingredients the insecticide has two modes of action, a quicker knock down and a longer residual.  When mixed and applied per labeled instructions this insecticide is undetectable to insects thus allowing them the walk through it and come in contact with the chemicals that kill them.

  • Asked by Mario from Tucson
    05/10/2018
    Q
    Why should you only use 8ml Temprid FX Insecticide for bed bugs and not 16 mil when it's a higher dosage ?
    What if I'm treating inside and outside for all types of insects including bed bugs what amount should I use for a one gallon applicator.
    A

    Temprid FX Insecticide can be mixed at the higher rate of 16 ml per gallon water for treatment inside and outside when you are treating for heavy infestations of other pests, but for bed bugs the label does indicate you do not use higher than 8 ml per gallon.  The manufacturer has tested and approved it for this rate only and it would work very well at the rate.  You can also just use the 8 ml per gallon for general pests inside and out depending on the target pest.

    Q
    How close of a time frame can I spray Temprid FX for bed bugs?
    I have these buggers for 4ish months now and started spraying suspend sc and precor thinking fleas.....had an inspector say it is bed bugs but not an extreme case yet and i must have been keeping them down with my mix. He recommended Temprix and Gentrol. So far i have applied every 15 days so the last month but am still getting bit. I seam to be getting bit a little less severe than before but nothing to brag about. Can i spray both closer together? I know it is as of now considered safe but I want to treat only as much as is "safe" since im afraid what they will say 15 years from now. Can i use both every 10 days? Or maybe 7 days or is that being poison crazy? My bug guy said every 15 days but i am not sure if the residual will last that long for bed bugs. Please help any info is helpful. This is my first bed bug encounter. Thanks
    A

    The residual for both Temprid FX and Gentrol will last for weeks. For bed bug control, you can reapply Temprid FX at a rate of 8 mL per gal of water at 7-10 day intervals. Please see our Bed Bug Inspection Guide and Bed Bug Treatment Guide for more tips on identifying harborage areas and eliminating this pest.
