    Q
    Is Temprid SC a repellent or non-repellent like Phantom and Termidor SC?
    A
    Temprid 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.

    Q
    How long does it take for bed bugs to die once it crosses the Temprid SC residual?
    A
    How 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.

    Q
    How many gallons of spray will a 400 ML bottle of Temprid SC make?
    A
    Temprid 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.

    Q
    What is the best residual product to use for bedbugs. I am looking for a long lasting spray.
    Need to treat for bebugs and have tried a few products and they are not getting rid of the problem. We have washed in hot water, trued bedlum plus, DE dust, and encased all beds. I need a spray that can be sprayed on carpets, sofas, in my vehical. With a long lasting residual. I need a quick knock down product with and one that keeps working when dry. Looking for a concentrate that goes into gallon sprayer.
    A

    Temprid would be a great choice for you. 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 prevents bed bug infestations for up to 6 months.

    Please make sure to follow the product label closely.

    Q
    How long do you need to stay away from room after spraying Temprid SC?
    Can you spray Temprid directly to your bed and furniture?
    A
    After applying Temprid SC, you should allow the treated spaces to dry first prior to allowing any children, pets or other adults in those areas. It can be applied to the tufts, folds and seams of mattresses, boxsprings and upholstered furniture.  It can also be applied 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 areas for the listed insects.

    Q
    I have mixed Temprid with a gallon of water and still have some left over...how long can it be stored?
    How long can I store my Temprid and water mixture? I have mixed 8mm into a gallon of water and didn't use all of it and was wondering if I can store it for a week or a month like this?
    A
    You should not store diluted Temprid (or most other diluted insecticides for that matter) for more than 24 hours because the acids in the water will start to degrade the product making it ineffective. Leftover dilution can be disposed of by pouring it out right up against the  foundation of your structure outside.

    Q
    I read that Temprid SC can make 50 gallons. Is there a smaller bottle available?
    50 gallons is an awful lot for people who are just treating their own home. This is probably why Temprid costs so much more than other insecticides. Do the makers of Temprid plan to market a smaller amount, or make an aerosol that would be useful to people who would never use up what is in the bottle they currently sell?
    A
    Temprid SC is available in a 240ml bottle. It is also available in a Ready Spray can that is great for homeowners. For a professional that may treat 10 homes in one day, this bottle does not last very long.  You can mix 8 ml per gallon of water or 16 ml per gallon of water for most insect problems. The product has a shelf life of at least 5 years as long as you keep the lid on and keep it out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.

    Q
    Can I apply Temprid SC without wearing a mask?
    I noticed that most pro companies spray around houses without any lung protection. Especially when spraying up towards the gutters and soffit. Can I spray this Temprid SC without using a mask?
    A
    It is not necessary to wear a mask when spraying Temprid SC if you are spraying in a well ventilated area. If not, we would recommend using a mask.

  • Asked by Jorge
    03/27/2010
    Q
    Can I mix Temprid SC with Gentrol and Demand CS?
    A
    Temprid SC can be mixed with Gentrol IGR for control of many insects. We would not recommend mixing Temprid with Demand CS. Since they both have synthetic pyrethroids as active ingredients, it would most likely not improve efficacy. Temprid SC would be a great choice if you would like to use dual active ingredients as it contains two active ingredients, Imidacloprid 21% and Beta-Cyfluthrin 10.5%.

    Q
    Is it safe to use Temprid SC Insecticide with pets around?
    Our dog will eat bugs that she finds in the garage or on the porch. If insects are treated with Temprid SC, will it hurt her?
    A

    Yes, Temprid SC Insecticide is labeled to be applied in and around a home that has pets. Keep them out of the area during the application and they can return when the treated areas are completely dry. Your pet would need to ingest tons and tons of treated insects to have an effect on her.

  • Asked by Raymond
    06/21/2011
    Q
    What's the difference between water based and oil based insecticide?
    A
    Water based insecticides are the most commonly used insecticides today because they have low or no odor and they usually do not stain. Oil based insecticides are used in cases where the product may need to stay wetter for a longer period of time and they are usually used outdoors to avoid odor issues and staining. Oil based insecticides usually need to be diluted with oil or you must use an additive such as adjuvant to dilute the product in water (always read the product label for proper mixing instructions).

    Q
    Removing Temprid residue
    How can we remove Temprid residue from our floors and walls? We have a mix of tile and wooden flooring at home. We have a baby at home - hence would like to try and remove as much residue as possible from the wooden floor, tiled floor and painted cement walls. Does Temprid get absorbed into wood when it is applied to wooden surfaces, floor, furniture? I understand that it is water based, so I was wondering if it is drawn into the wood together with water?
    A

    To remove the Temprid SC residual you can mop, steam, or scrub the product off the baseboards and walls once it has dried. Temprid will not be absorbed into the floors or furniture if has been stained or treated in anyway and can be removed as instructed.

  • Asked by Mark
    12/24/2010
    Q
    Can Talstar P and Temprid SC be mixed together and be safely sprayed indoor and outdoors?
    A
    There is no valid reason to mix Temprid SC and Talstar P together.  Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Temprid SC already contains a synthetic pyrethroid, so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation.
