Lisa from HENDERSON, NV asked:

Q
What's the difference between Tempo SC Ultra and Suspend SC?
I've skimmed through both product labels and looked online and can't seem to find much of a difference between the two. I purchased the pint of Suspend SC last year and just purchased the Tempo SC ULtra and was surprised to find that it's only 8 oz. (That's my fault for not looking at the size before I ordered) I was wondering what the difference between the two is though, since the Tempo costs twice what the Suspend does. I'm using the product to treat mainly for scorpions. Thank you for any info!
A
Tempo SC Ultra contains beta-Cyfluthrin 11.8%, whereas Suspend SC contains Deltamethrin 4.75%. These active ingredients are different, which affects the rate at which you would dilute them before application. Tempo SC Ultra may come in a smaller bottle than Suspend SC, but you need half as much to mix in a gallon of water. Tempo SC is diluted .5 oz (16mL) to 1 gallon of water and Suspend SC is diluted 1 oz to 1 gallon of water. They are both great for general insecticides, but are different in their makeup.

Richard from Ocala, Florida asked:

Q
What is the Half Life of Tempo SC Ultra Insecticide
I am having a roach problem and have had it for two years. The Pest Control Co. I have had for the two years insists that spraying around and in the home every 3 months should do the job. The Chemicals used : Mother Earth Scatter Bait - Phantom SC 0.5% - Prelude EC 0.05% and recently - Tempo SC Ultra Insecticide. After checking into a Prelude's half life I am concern and wonder about the 3 mo. intervals on the rest. Please respond, I need your opinion.
A
Tempo SC Ultra has a resiudual of 3 months indoors. However, a key part of eradiacting roaches is to incorporate a roach  bait. A great roach bait to use is Vendetta Plus. Vendetta Plus is an effective cockroach bait, plus, it contains the insect growth regulator (IGR) NyGuard which interrupts the life cycle of the roach and helps to prevent future infestations.

Kea from Kansas City, mo asked:

Q
Is Tempo SC the best product to use for carpet beetle?
I've had an exterminator spray my apartment 2 times for carpet beetles. Not sure what product they are using but live beetles are still being found. Is this the best product to use to take care of them myself?
A

Tempo SC Ultra will kill carpet beetles that come in contact with it, but Tempo SC Ultra is really designed as a crack and crevice spray. You could use Nyguard Plus, which is safe to use on carpets. Please be sure to keep these tips in mind as well.

Carpet beetle larvae like to feed in dark, undisturbed locations like closets, attics, basements, and storage areas. The wide availability of food sources for the larvae (including dust and lint, and pet hair) makes vacuuming the best way to ensure there is minimal food for the larvae to feed on. Vacuuming can also help to remove the larvae and adult beetles already in the home. Regular vacuuming and laundering of rugs, furniture, and linens can help to ensure the beetles are removed and have no food source. If you find a contaminated item, bag and remove this item from your home, if possible.

Proper storage: Before storing silks, woolens, or furs, dry clean as the beetles are attracted to stains and soiled garments. Store in a well-sealed container, using mothballs. Mothballs can limit the beetle’s attraction to the wool or silk. Store pet food, dried meat, and other dried animal products in a well-sealed container.

Insecticides: For things that cannot be washed or dry cleaned, insecticides are the best bet for prevention and eradication.

Insecticides can be used for spot-treatments, as a boundary at the edges of rugs, under rugs, under furniture, walls and floors of closets, shelving, cracks, and lint or dust accumulating areas. Be careful around oriental rugs or other fabrics, as some insecticides can stain. Never spray clothing or bedding with insecticide, and always read instructions.

amber from okc ok asked:

Q
Will Tempo SC Ultra kill carpet beetles? We only have wood floors but we have carpet beetles.
Do we need to add anything with the the Tempo SC Ultra to kill the carpet beatles?
A

Tempo SC Ultra will kill Carpet Beetles. We do not recommend applying to hardwood floors. Carpet beetle infestations can be very difficult to control. The best weapon for getting rid of them is to combine cleaning and insecticides.

Insecticides: For things that cannot be washed or dry cleaned, insecticides are the best bet for prevention and eradication. You can also mix in Gentrol IGR with your Tempo SC. This will help to break down the reproduction cycle.

autumn from tilden, nebraska asked:

Q
Why can't I use the 32ml of Tempo SC Ultra in my home?
Are the chemical proportions different?
A
Tempo SC Ultra 32 Ml was developed after the 8oz and 900ml bottles. The label is designed and geared towards barns, horse stables and animal quarters. We cannot recommend it for indoor use because the label was approved by the EPA for use only outdoors.

Chelsea from North Vancouver, BC asked:

Q
Do i need to clean my house after using tempo for silverfish when i have a 14 month crawling around?
My 14 month old is constantly crawling on the floor and putting things in his mouth. We treated our home with Tempo for silverfish and got an exterminator in. Is it safe for our baby to be crawling around and putting things in his mouth? Do i also need to clean all his toys?
A
There is no need to clean anything when Tempo is being used as required on the product label. Indoors it should have only been used in cracks and crevices and in other areas that are mainly inaccessible to children. If the product was not used as outlined in these requirements then you would need to thoroughly wash the areas that were sprayed with soap and water.

Carly from Cedar Rapids, IA asked:

Q
Does the Tempo SC Ultra product kill fleas?
A
Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled for indoor flea control but would do a great job outside.  It is not applied as an indoor broadcast application for the treatment of this insect or any other insect. It is applied only as a crack and crevice application indoors.  For outdoors we also recommend mixing in an IGR that will help break down the reproductive cycle. You can use something like NyGuard IGR.  For indoors we would recommend Nyguard Plus which can  be applied to carpets, rugs, flooring, floors, drapes and all surfaces of upholstered furniture including under cushions. Avoid over wetting furniture and carpeting.

Emily from Santa Barbara, CA asked:

Q
Termidor SC was applied around my house 6 months ago. How long before I can eat vegetables grown in that soil?
I transplanted some chard into a planting bed next to the house 2 weeks ago. The plants look great, but will they poison us?
A
If you planted edible plants in any soil treated with Termidor you would not be able to eat anything from those plants.   Termidor should not under any circumstances be applied near or on anything edible and you should also not plant anything edible in soil that is treated with Termidor.  You should keep Termidor treatments at least 10 feet away from any garden.

Cathy from Clyde, Ohio asked:

Q
Will Tempo SC Ultra treat yellow jackets in a wall?
A
Tempo SC Ultra can be applied in a wall void, but dust products are much better suited for flying insects. Our most popular dust  for bees/wasp is Tempo Dust.  You will need a hand duster to apply it with.  It usually works within 24 to 48 hours. You want to go up to the opening where they are flying in and out of at dusk or at night when they are not active and puff twice directly into the hole.  Then pull the duster out and puff directly at the hole to cover the opening from about 5 inches away.  This is the most efficient and fastest way to eliminate a bee/yellow jacket/wasp nest.

Q
Will Tempo SC Ultra kill fruit trees if you spray it on them directly?
A
Tempo SC Ultra will not kill a fruit tree but is not labeled to be used on any fruit trees. We do carry another product called Bayer Advanced Vegetable and Fruit Spray which contains the same active ingredient Cyfluthrin but in a different formulation which allows it to be used on edible vegetation.
