Temprid SC Insecticide

UPDATE: Temprid SC has now been discontinued and Temprid FX is now the replacement product. Same product but now labeled for Mosquitoes and use on Ornamentals!

Temprid SC (suspension concentrate) insecticide offers a unique dual mode of action by combining two powerful and effective residual insecticides: beta-cyfluthrin and imidacloprid. The result is Temprid, which provides quick knockdown and long residual control of more than 50 pests, including ants, spiders, cockroaches and other key perimeter pests. The dual action works extremely well on pests like ants, making it one of the best ant control products on the market. While Temprid SC is labeled for indoor and outdoor use, we recommend spraying outside and around the foundation of the home -- spray about 3 ft. up the side of the house, and about 3-5 ft. out from the structure from the base of the foundation (spraying directly on the ground) -- this will give you a powerful contiguous barrier against pests.

The popular and powerful Temprid SC is now available in a convenient 8 mL dose for smaller applications or for one-time treatments. No separate measuring device is required, just use one 8mL dose per gallon of water for most applications, or use 2 x 8mL doses per gallon of water for clean-out or heavy infestations.

The 900 mL bottle comes with a tip and measure feature.

How Temprid SC Works

Temprid SC Insecticide is a suspension concentrate formulation of two insecticide active ingredients, imidacloprid and beta-cyfluthrin. These two active ingredients affect targets pests differently, offering complete and unique control for the toughest pests, even when resistance is a concern. Imidacloprid is a patented neonicotinoid manufactured by Bayer Cropscience. Neonicotinoids refer to the class neuro-active insecticides that are modeled after nicotine. Imidacloprid works by disrupting inhibiting stimuli transmission within the nervous system of a given insect when that insect either ingests or absorbs the poison into its body. More specifically, imidacloprid blocks a certain type of neuronal pathways which are much more prevalent in insects than mammals. That is why the chemical is much more toxic to insects than humans or animals. Because of its slower kill time, imidacloprid is used when a transfer effect is desired for treatment of social insects such as ants and cockroaches.

Beta-cyfluthrin is a synthetic pyrethroid that attacks the central nervous system of target pests. Made to mimic the effects on insects of naturally occurring pyrethrum, man-made beta-cyfluthrin has the advantage of remaining effective far longer than pyrethrins. In Temprid SC, beta-cyfluthrin provides a quick knockdown for immediate control, while the imidacloprid provides long-lasting results and far-reaching control through a transfer effect. Temprid SC is a liquid concentrate made to be diluted with water and is best applied with a hand pump sprayer like the Chapin Premier 1 gallon sprayer.

Target Insects

Target Uses

Temprid SC provides quick knockdown and long residual control of more than 50 pests, including ants, spiders, cockroaches and other key perimeter pests. The dual action works extremely well on pests like ants, making it one of the best ant control products on the market. While Temprid SC is labeled for indoor and outdoor use, we recommend spraying outside and around the foundation of the home -- spray about 3 ft. up the side of the house, and about 3-5 ft. out from the structure from the base of the foundation (spraying directly on the ground) -- this will give you a powerful contiguous barrier against pests.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Imidacloprid 21%; Beta-Cyfluthrin 10.5%

Application Instructions

How to Use Temprid SC (Video):

Temprid 8 mL Packs

Temprid SC can be used indoors as a spot treatment or as a void injection by mist, foam, or crack and crevice spray, and outdoors as a perimeter treatment, general surface spray, or foliar application to established landscape ornamentals. Always read the product label completely before use.

Mixing Instructions - Shake concentrate before using.  Mix the appropriate amount of Temprid SC Insecticide with water. Add product when filling spray tank with water; shake or agitate mixture. Diluted spray mixture can be stored overnight. Agitate before using.

* Re-apply every 7 to 10 days, if needed.

Each 400mL bottle yields 25 to 50 gallons of finished solution using standard application dilution rates. Each 900mL bottles yields 56 to 112 gallons of finished solution.

Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios:

  • 0.27 fl. oz. (8 mL)/gal. of water – 0.075% total a.i. – maintenance or preventative treatments
  • 0.54 fl. oz. (16 mL)/gal. of water – 0.15% total a.i. – severe infestations, faster knockdown, or longer residual needs
  • One gallon of finished solution covers approximately 1,000 square feet. For high volume applications for outdoor treatments, dilute at lower concentrations and apply in greater volumes of water.

Use in the Following Areas:

In and around buildings and structures; On established landscape ornamentals around residential and commercial properties; buildings, structures, and modes of transport including: apartment buildings, bakeries, bottling facilities, breweries, buses, cafeterias, candy plants, cereal processing and manufacturing plants, correctional facilities, dairies and dairy product processing plants, factories, frozen food plants, grain mills, granaries, greenhouses (structures only), 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 and similar structures; food processing facilities (non food/feed areas), transportation vessels such as buses, trucks, trailers, rail cars, and marine vessels.


Use 8-16 mL per gallon of water in a low-pressure system such as a hand pump sprayer. Treat where pests have been seen or found, or can find shelter. Use only as a spot spray, crack and crevice or void treatment. Treat entry points such as around water pipes, doors, windows, and eaves. Treat around where pests normally feed or hide such as baseboards, corners, around water pipes, behind or under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, and stoves.

Bed Bug Control:

  • Use at a rate of 0.27 fl oz (8 milliliters) of Temprid SC per gallon of water.
  • Controls bed bug populations that are resistant to pyrethroid insecticides. Spray bugs directly wherever possible following site directions below:
  • For infested mattresses, remove linens and wash before reuse. Apply to tufts, seams, folds, and edges until moist. Allow to dry before remaking bed.
  • Apply to bedsprings, box springs, and the interior of bed frames or headboards, including all cracks and joints.
  • When bed bugs are found in upholstered furniture, apply only to the infested tufts, seams, folds and edges, but do not apply to flat surfaces where prolonged human contact will occur. If bugs heavily infest furniture (inside cushions and/or batting) apply a labeled insecticide dust.
  • Apply as a crack and crevice treatment to all baseboards, moldings, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture and picture frames that may provide harborage to bed bugs.
  • Temprid SC is not repellent to bed bugs, can withstand up to 8 hours of bed bug heat treatments (140 F), and prevents bed bug infestations for up to 6 months.

* Do not apply as a broadcast treatment to floors or floor coverings or as a space spray.


Use 8-16 mL per gallon of water; always use the higher dilution rate for fire ants, hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets. Apply to surfaces on buildings, porches, patios and other structures, around doors and windows, eaves and attic vents, utility entry points, soffit areas and other exterior openings where outdoor/perimeter pests enter the structure or where they have been seen or found, or can find shelter. To prevent infestation, treat the outside of the structure to include walls to a height of 2 to 3 feet and treat the soil, turf, or other ground covering adjacent to the structure in a band up to 10 feet wide.

Ants – Locate and treat ant nests, if possible. Follow trails of foraging workers, check under objects near the structure, and inspect other likely nest sites. If ants are nesting in the soil, thoroughly drench or inject the nest and surrounding soil. Treat ant trails around windows and doors, along sidewalks, or other areas where seen. Apply a perimeter treatment as described above. Temprid SC contains a systemic insecticide (imidacloprid), so foliar application to landscape ornamentals provides locally systemic control of aphids, scale insects, and other plant-sucking insects and limit the production of honeydew (an important food source for ant populations). Apply a very light mist of the dilute spray, and do not allow excess run-off. Treat thoroughly for good coverage including the underside of leaves as these pests often feed or rest there.

Wood-Infesting Pests – Dilute at a rate of 0.27 oz. (8 mL) per gallon of water. Apply as a spray or foam to galleries, structure voids, or soil or wood surfaces where target pests may be found. Treatment dilutions may also be applied to wood surfaces by paint brush or rollers. Do not apply directly to firewood. See product label for complete instructions.


  • Two modes of action for optimal control of target pests.
  • Low odor and non-staining formulation.
  • Low phytotoxicity on a wide range of ornamental plants.
  • Delivers unsurpassed ant control, and also eliminates aphids, scale and mealy bugs.
  • Can be applied indoors and outdoors (please refer to label for special precautions regarding indoor use).
  • Can be applied outdoors as a perimeter spray 3 ft. up and 10 ft out from the structure.
  • Labeled to control some perimeter pests that other products don’t.
  • Controls pests fast.
  • Combines fast-acting beta-cyfluthrin with the systemic residual control of Imidacloprid to provide premium performance.
  • Low dilution rate means more finished solution from each bottle.

Extra Tips for Using

  • Shake well before using. Product may separate if stored for long periods of time, but this will not diminish its efficacy.
  • Do not contact treated surfaces until dry. People and pets may re-enter after the treated area is dry.
  • Store concentrate out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures for maximum shelf life.
  • Use in conjunction with other formulations and products, such as insecticide dusts and aerosols, for optimum bed bug control.

    5 of 5 stars  Temprid is the ONLY choice for Bed Bugs
    By Rick in phoenix on 08/09/2011

    I used Suspend for Weeks on my bed bug problem. It helped and killed some but wasn't really doing the job I needed. I tested the suspend directly on some of my bugs and realized it was very slow to act or even if directly prayed still did not work at all. After consulting with the Bayer Rep I bought the Temprid and all I can say was WOW this stuff killed the bedbugs residually and immediately Overnight it was like my problem was gone and I still find one or two dead under the bed every few days as they try to make their way out for a meal. I think they are all gone now and all I can say is Temprid all the way.

    5 of 5 stars  Murders Bed Bugs
    By Christie in virginia on 04/24/2012
    Verified Purchase

    Bottom Line - FAST SHIPPING and PRODUCT WORKS We had an infestation in one bedroom and a few in the bedroom next to it. My wife was devastated and took the whole episode pretty hard. We had taken my son to the doctor three times for a "rash" and was told it was eczema. She had to tell people at church and friends to make sure they had not spread to friends. My office at work shut down my office for two days to exterminate after I told them about it. I had to take about a week off to get all this done. This is the steps we took to get rid of the bugs. 1.Threw out the mattress, box spring and headboard/foot board in the most infested room (sons). 2.took all clothing out of the infected rooms and washed in the hottest water out water heater could produce. 3. Sprayed a gallon of sterifab between the two rooms on everything. Walls, carpet, cracks, furniture....everything. 4. Put 3 pounds of FOOD GRADE Diatomaceous earth powder on the carpet throughout the house. We left this down for 3 days because we had to wait for the carpet cleaners to have an opening. I found a live bug on a mattress and put it on the dusted carpet and it was dead in an hour. I can't say it wasn't some other step that helped to kill it but it was cheap and animal friendly and I had the time. BTW I got it from a local pet store for 15.00. I also took off outlet covers and dusted in there. I feel like this helped keep them from spreading from the most infested rooms because the rooms were not really livable for a few days and I didn't want the bugs to spread seeking out a meal. I'm just an armchair exterminator so who knows...but it did make us feel better even if it was a bit messy. I did find it dried out your skin and airway but is pet safe. 5. We had all the carpet steam cleaned and the mattress in the lesser infected room. 6.Ordered temprid from here and had it sent two day air. At this point we had moved back into the lesser infected room and had an air mattress in the most infected room. I slept in the most infected room and my wife and son slept in the lesser. I didn't seem to have any bites but my wife and son did have a few. 7. My order arrived on time with easy tracking and the instructions were easy to follow. I mixed up the insecticide per the instructions and sprayed down the two rooms including the remaining box spring, mattress sides and bottom, carpet that wasn't in constant contact with people, and all cracks. We moved back to our normal sleeping arrangement. Mom and dad in lesser and son on air mat in the more infected room. Wife had a few bites, son had none and I found one large bug on me when I woke up in the night. We would search our bed every morning and found a couple dead bugs in the metal frame railing. After the first week of temprid my wife still had a couple bites but no one else. I reapplied temprid as before after 7 days. During the second week we found maybe two dead bugs on the mattress/frame but no bites. I reapplied temprid one more time after 7 days. WE purchased a new mattress/box spring for my sons room and encased it with covers....just in case. After four weeks no bites and no dead bugs found thanks to hard work, Temprid, and DoMyOwnPestControl.com Bottom Line - FAST SHIPPING and PRODUCT WORKS

    5 of 5 stars  Bed Bug Nightmare
    By Deneene in Baltimore on 06/14/2011

    I had bed bugs in my home that were resistant to the Suspend SC product. I did some research and found the Temprid SC is the product to use for resistant bed bugs. I used this product along with the Gentrol and Diatomaceous earth dust and it worked great. I have not seen anymore bugs. I am a very pleased and happy customer!!!

    2 of 5 stars  This products sucks on roaches
    By Rey in kissimmee fl on 04/17/2010

    Treated various homes for German roaches.  Followed up a week later and the roaches were walking over it like nothing was there. Also please note this product is not tank mixable with other products so you would have to use a new or chemically neutralized tank for it to be effective. Also it is not labeled for use with insect growth regulators.  Also tested product on variety of ants, it is effective against household ants.  I would still go with Termidor outside once you find the trail and Phantom on the inside.  Especially for roaches, Phantom is your best option.  Also phantom can be mixed with insect growth regulators, which will maximize effectiveness.

    5 of 5 stars  Wow!
    By Nic in MI on 07/10/2013

    We have only used one treatment so far, but the night we used it I saw one bedbug right afterwards. Since then we have not seen one. For weeks I could not sleep or relax in my home. Since we used temprid sc none of my family has been bitten at night. Not only have we not seen any bedbugs, we haven't seen ANY bugs. I am so happy my husband found this site and ordered this. Orkin was going to charge us $800! We used the temprid, sprayed with phantom and came out $600 cheaper! Thank you for selling this, and making it so that I was again able to sleep in my bed and nap on my couch without waking every 30 minutes to make sure no disgusting bedbugs were crawling on me or my children!

    5 of 5 stars  Works on Bed Bugs
    By William in Phoenix, AZ on 12/17/2017

    I have cleared up 1000s of bed bug infestations as a PCO and owner of a company. Unfortunately these bugs live a lifestyle that makes using pesticides difficult with some kind of strategy that forces the bugs to cross enough of it to be poisoned. This can be done easily and successfully by simply removing yourself as an easy feeding opportunity. Making the bed an island, etc all work. Its simple. Just treat the room and stop feeding them, and by just keeping this cave adapted insect active will force it to keep active. Kills them all fast, every time with this product :)

QIs Temprid SC a repellent or non-repellent like Phantom and Termidor SC?

ATemprid SC has beta-cyfluthrin in it which is not a non-repellent product.  It is a repellent insecticide.  However, repellent these days does not mean the insect can sense that it is there and avoids the area.  The insect actually walks over the barrier and gets the insecticide on its tiny microscopic hairs on its body and eventually dies.

QHow many gallons of spray will a 400 ML bottle of Temprid SC make?

ATemprid SC can be mixed at a lower concentration of 8 ml per gallon of water and a higher concentration of 16 ml per gallon of water.  There is a total of 400 ml in a bottle. So at a lower concentration of 8 ml per gallon of water, Temprid SC will make 50 gallons of finished solution.  If you mixed all gallons at the higher concentration of 16 ml per gallon of water, you would get 25 gallons of finished solution.

QHow long does it take for bed bugs to die once it crosses the Temprid SC residual?

AHow long it takes the bed bugs to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the bed bug as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die.

QHow long will it take the Temprid and Cimexa to get rid of my bed bugs?



When you are spraying Temprid SC for bed bugs, it is recommended that you spray every 7-10 days until you do not see activity for 30 days. How long the product takes to work depends on how severe the problem is to begin with, your other treatment methods, and how thorough treatments are. Temprid SC does offer a long residual, however it is important to perform follow-up treatments at close intervals to kill newly hatched bed bugs that may be present in the area. Please see our Bed Bug Treatment article for more information.

QWill Temprid SC kill ticks?


Temprid SC would be effective for indoor and outdoor tick treatments when used as directed on the product label. Ideally, the indoor application would be made into every possible crevice in the room where the female ticks could go, but this could be a daunting effort. Try to picture where the ticks will wander for a place to hide, such as behind floor molding would be an obvious one. They might get up under stuffed furniture, behind pictures on the walls, inside dressers and other items in your home. All of these areas should be treated. We recommend using an IGR such as Archer IGR in combination with the insecticide that you choose. IGRs (insect growth regulators) will interrupt the growth cycle of juvenile ticks which will stop them from being able to mate and lay eggs. 

For outdoor areas, you use the combination of Temprid and Archer as well.Tie a white cloth to a stick or broom handle and  drag the cloth around over the lawn and grassy areas, and examine the cloth for ticks, which will latch onto the material as it passes by. Areas where ticks are found can be can be treated. You should also treat any tall growth or shrubs.

QMy exterminator used Temprid SC Insecticide as a fumigant. Is this dangerous?
Nothing I read on the label suggests to use it as a fumigant and he told me it's ok to return to the property after 6 hours. Will I be safe going back in 6 hours?


We cannot comment on any work done by a pest control professional. The Temprid SC Insecticide product label states this product should only be applied as a spray, mist or foam and once the product has dried completely it is not harmful to adults, children or pets. It is not labeled to be used as a gas or vapor that is released into the air in your home. We would recommend contacting Bayer, the manufacturer at (800) 331-2867.

Which insecticides and or IGR would be appropriate (German Roach) to use in a school situation in NJ. Currently using pyrethrins and cyfluthrins, but there seems to be a resistant problem.


Per the product label, Temprid SC is approved for use in schools.  That being said, unfortunately we cannot make recommendations for products used in a school environment. You will first need to contact your state Agricultural Dept. or school district for a list of approved products.

QWill Temprid SC Insecticide dry if sprayed onto damp soil?
I have 2 dogs, one with sensitive skin. Yesterday pest control sprayed my back yard where the soil is very damp (everytime you walk on it the bottom of your shoes are wet). I kept my dogs inside for 1 hour but one of them started chewing his feet and had irritated red itchy feet the last 24 hours. I assume it is because the soil was damp and it never had a chance to dry. Will it ever dry out if it has been sprayed on wet soil that is never dry? I'm worried as this stuff lasts a month outdoors and is effecting my dog badly at the moment. Don't know what to do..


Temprid SC Insecticide will dry within a few hours when applied outside, typically best to keep pets out for at least 4-5 hours after application.  If the soil is an area that is always damp you will need to repair the issue that is causing it also stay wet or it will not dry out completely.  If you are unable to do so it would be best to avoid having these areas sprayed with insecticides.
