Mike writes,

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.
