Q
Is Tempo SC Ultra safe for puppies
After applying Tempo and it has dried and after it has rained, are the standing water on our deck safe for puppies to be in. Tempo was sprayed several weeks prior to having puppies on deck
A
Tempo SC Ultra is pet safe when used as directed on the product label.  Pets should be out of the area until dry, typically a few hours.  After that rain should not move the product or contaminate any puddles that can build on the surface of the treated area.

Q
Will Tempo SC Ultra hurt hummingbirds, chimney swifts, other wild birds, tree frogs, toads and other wildlife?
We are going to spray indoors and outdoors for roaches and spiders. We have chimney swifts that nest in our non functional chimney. I also feed about 20 hummingbirds. Birds eat alot of insects and I don't want to poison any of them but want to get rid of our roaches and spiders.
A
Tempo SC Ultra should not harm birds, wildlife or beneficial creatures when used as directed on the product label.  It is best to apply when they are not in the area and hope they do not return until dry.  Once the product has dried, it only has a toxicity level of that to kill something as small as an insect.

Q
Difference between SC Ultra and SC Ultra Premise & Application
What is the difference between Tempo SC Ultra and Tempo SC Ultra "Premise"? Do you need to reapply it after it rains or just on a 10 day rotating schedule? I have a campground and thinking of using it for guests.
A
Tempo SC Ultra and Premise 2 Termiticide are two different products. They have two different active ingredients. We would recommend using the product when rain is not in the forecast or at least 24 hours. The reapplication time for Tempo SC Ultra is 30 days outdoors. The reapplication time for Premise 2 Termiticide is six months topically. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Q
Will Tempo SC Ultra kill fleas in carpet?
A
While Tempo SC ultra is labeled for the control of fleas and would kill a flea that came into contact with a treated surface, it is only labeled to be used in cracks an crevices indoors. It cannot and should not be sprayed across carpets as a broadcast for flea control inside. You can use it as a broadcast for fleas outdoors and mix it at the rate of 8ml to a gallon of water. For treating the inside of the home for fleas, we would recommend our Indoor Flea Kit, which comes with a dust to use to get the fleas deep in the base of your carpets and crevices, as well as a broadcast spray that will not only kill, but stop the reproductive cycle of the fleas. You can review our guide on How to Get Rid of Fleas here. This includes step by step instructions, product recommendations, and How To videos for treating the inside of your home as well as your pet and outdoors.

Q
Midge Control
We have swarms of millions of midges that look like massive clouds. they stick to your house get into the house th rough the screens and cover the car. Is there anything I can spray to destroy this mass invasion before it happens besides keep lights down. It is awful.
A
Biting midges do generally not enter structures, but midges are small enough to get through 16 mesh screens. Getting mesh screens with a higher number can keep these and other very tiny insects out of your home. Since non-biting midges are attracted to lights, draw your shades at night and wait as long as possible to turn on exterior lights to keep them away from your home. It is nearly impossible to affect the habitat of these pests, and pesticides are not recommended to control these pests in water or mud.

Our experts recommend using a pyrethrin spray such as 565 Plus or Microcare to get rid of the adult midges in or around your home. Spraying a product such as Tempo SC Ultra on window screens, doors, bushes, and plants around your home can act as midge repellant to keep midges away. Citronella candles or oils can act as a midge repellant, but aren’t as effective when used alone.

Q
Will Tempo SC Ultra kill termites?
A
Tempo SC Ultra will eradicate those above ground termites but will not replace a soil applicaiton or wood treatment. If you are treating for termites we recommend a soil treatment for subterranean termites with a non-repellent termiticide such as Termidor SC. Bora-Care can be applied to raw wood for treating drywood termites. Please read our Termite Treatment Article for more information.
