If I spray Tempo SC Ultra in closets or closed areas, will the fumes kill carpet beetles/larva?
No, Tempo SC Ultra does not have fumes per say. Its mode of action is a residual film where you apply the product. If the product comes into contact with a carpet beetle or larvae, it will kill it. If a carpet beetles or larvae walks or crawls over a surface that was sprayed with Tempo SC Ultra, then it will pick up the residual of the product on itself and die. We do carry a product called Nuvan Pro Strips which does emit fumes and are for small enclosed areas like a closet. You can leave the strips for a period of time and it will kill any beetles or larvae that happen to be in the closet. Please read the product label for full instructions.
