Does Tempo SC Ultra kill roaches?

Answer:

Tempo SC Ultra would be a great choice to use as part of a roach control program. We also recommend using a roach bait gel and an insect growth regulator along with the Tempo SC Ultra to get rid of a roach infestation. A roach bait gel such as the Advion Roach Bait Gel can be applied up high in the kitchen in the corner of cabinets and in cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms. The bait contains a slow-acting poison that attracts and kills feeding roaches, who also spread the bait to other roaches by contact or by sharing food. An Insect Growth Regulator such as  Gentrol Point Source stations provide an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that will stop roaches from laying eggs, helping to halt the infestation. The combination of an IGR with roach bait and a quality insecticide is a highly effective roach control strategy that is widely used by pest control professionals.
