It can be applied using a hand duster or power duster directly into voids and cracks and crevices, in and around structures. Tempo 1% Dust has excellent penetration into wall voids, ensuring equal coverage, and is odorless and non-staining.

Tempo 1% Dust makes pest harborages uninhabitable, and is an ideal solution for penetrating cracks, crevices, and other hard to reach areas. Tempo 1% Dust is an "all around" dust that provides a long residual against a variety of perimeter pests, especially stinging insects like bees and wasps. Use a hand duster to make application easy in those hard to reach areas like cracks, crevices, base boards or wall voids.

  • Can be used both indoors and outdoors
  • Effectively controls stinging insects, particularly bees and wasps when used as directed
  • Provides a long residual and can remain active up to a year if left undisturbed

    5 of 5 stars  Tempo Dust Works Great
    By Matt in McSherrystown, PA on 09/18/2009
    Verified Purchase

    I also had yellow jackets up in my soffits. The local Pro service wanted $140 to get rid of them. I found this awesome website and ordered the Tempo 1% dust and the $14.95 bellow hand duster. I dressed up like a space alien for protection and gave them a few good shots of dust late last evening. I was a little worried at first because it did not kill them instantly on contact like a jet spray. They were swarming around the opening (and me) pretty well even after I dusted them. But today after work I looked and they are all gone! Plenty of dead ones on the ground and none flying around anywhere. I saved around $100, I now own the hand duster, and I have plenty of the Tempo dust left over. Glad I found this place!

    5 of 5 stars  The ONLY thing that worked.
    By Jeremy in Washington State on 09/23/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I saw this product online with these great reviews. I had to try it as it was my last hope. I had a huge yellow jacket problem. At first I tried to let them coexist. I then tried to control them by eliminating the nests as I spotted them with OTC sprays. I hung a OTC trap in an effort to control them. This year, they got especially aggressive and stung myself and my father in law. Their stings were very very painful. I now know why they are called the devil's insect. The final straw was them building a nest under my shed. This was a nest I could not physically get too. I knew it was getting bigger and bigger as more and more activity continued around an opening. In a matter of weeks I would see constant swarming yellow jackets going under the shed floor through a crack. I tried dousing with spray and spraying into the crack. This just made a few die and get the rest extremely angry. I tried sealing it with bricks and preventing entry. They still found a way through the tiniest of cracks and actually moved gravel. They were VERY motivated. I ordered the dust and crossed my fingers. After the first dusting I wasn't sure if it did anything. I waited 2 days and still saw activity. On the 3rd day, I waited until nightfall and planned my second dusting. I pulled back a brick to examine the hole and sure enough there were probably about 50+ dead yellow jackets all on the ground. They were still getting in but dying on the way in/out. I applied more dust. This time getting all of the perimeter of the shed. Next day, no yellow jacket activity. They got the hint. I even spotted a dead yellow jacket about 25-30 feet away from the opening! The devil's insect terrorized me for a good 3 months and kept me from even going into my shed. Thank you so much it is such a relief to finally be able to enjoy my own yard. Use Tips for Yellow Jackets: Apply at nightfall. I can't stress this enough. You are less likely to be stung at this time. Activity is way less. Still be VERY careful. Even at night, one of the worker friends didn't appreciate the forceful dusting and popped his lovely head out to say hello and chase me. Buy a duster. Only way to make it work. I used the cheapest bulb duster I could find here. It dispersed it pretty dang far. A little goes a long way and I probably went overkill a bit with 2 dustings. I wanted to be sure though as I can't see the nest and wanted to cover the perimeter for permanent treatment. Even then I didn't even use much compared to what they send you. Don't count on it killing on contact like the spray. Remember this is a permanent fix. Not just a "spray them they are dead." The sprays are good for visible nests. Spray and knockdown. If you are dusting and they come out to say hello, you should make a hasty exit and try back another time. Service here was great. If I ever need anymore, I will always by from domyownpestcontrol.com!

    5 of 5 stars  UNBELIEVABLE!
    By Dennis in Saginaw, MI on 09/19/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I had (key word is HAD) a yellowjacket problem under the aluminum siding of my house. I could see where they were entering, but couldn't get to the nest, so I drilled a hole through the siding into the space just under the window and tried using a straw to inject liquid and foam insecticides. It proved ineffective, so I mixed up a batch of seven (the hardware store assured me it would kill the bees), stuck my sprayer wand into the hole and drenched it with about a half gallon of the mix. I'm sure I must have killed a few of them (perhaps they drowned), but I was unimpressed and still had a bee problem. Then I found this website and what they said made sense to me. I bought Tempo 1% dust and a duster and went after the wasps. I dusted the openings and dusted in the hole I had drilled in the siding. It took a day or two for the yellowjackets to track the dust back into their nest, but it did an excellent job of eradication! There was a marked reduction in wasp activity within 24 hours and a complete kill in 48. Best product I have ever used. Make sure to use a breathing mask and gloves as the dust is so fine you will undoubtably breath in some of it and it's a bit rough on the lungs. I had a 10 minute coughing fit after using it, but I'll be smarter next time. After all it really is harder on the bees than on me! LOL! I only used a few ounces of the dust so there is alot left over for future needs. Thanks guys, I appreciate you site and products.

    By Jon in Elgin, IL on 08/21/2009
    Verified Purchase

    I just wanted to let you all know how well the Tempo Dust got rid of the hornet and yellow jacket problem in my soffits. I had tried so many things to get rid of them – OTC jet sprays, Delta Dust, foggers, and even paint thinner! The problem was I did not know exactly where the nest was in my soffit. I just puffed Tempo Dust around all the crevices to my soffits where they were getting in last night and now there is no insect activity this morning! Thanks again for your products and prompt delivery.

    3 of 5 stars  Excellent for most pests, so so for bed bugs
    By Jim in MN on 03/21/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I've been using Tempo Dust for a couple months or so after reading a study on how this knocked down bed bugs within 24 hours of contact. This was applied to the perimeter of the rooms, base of furniture, legs and frame of beds. There has been some improvement but the bites continue. On the other hand, there was a problem with ants and Tempo has quickly killed off these and all insect pests. For bed bugs I can only give it a 3 but all others a 5.

    5 of 5 stars  Best Product for Cockroaches and BED BUGS
    By Jesus in Canoga Park, CA on 06/18/2014
    Verified Purchase

    This product has saved my life from bedbugs. When the product arrive, I couldn't wait to use it. I ordered this product and the bellow duster. Before using it on bedbugs, I went on using it on cockroaches in my kitchen. I live in a apartment where the manager doesn't really do much. She has only fumigated the kitchen for cockroaches maybe 3 times in my 20 years of living. The exterminator didn't do a good job. Cockroaches aren't my big concern since they aren't the ones biting me at night but once I puffed around the kitchen, cockroaches started to appear out of their hiding areas. This product is amazing! I puffed under the stove, under the refrigerator, under the cabinets and in the crevices where I would see them flee. The cockroaches kept coming out and coming out. They would climb up the ceiling and then fall right straight down on the floor. It has gotten rid of a lot of cockroaches. And the plus side to this product is that it stays active up to a year. I do recommend buying IGR since cockroaches make eggs and this can't kill the eggs. Once I started seeing the cockroaches crawling up to the ceiling and then dying, I didn't want to be near the kitchen. So I started my bed bug extermination. I began my room. I puffed in the crevices of the wall. I opened up the outlets and puffed in the walls too. I put the pipe of the duster between the wall and the carpet. I puffed the whole room against the carpet and the baseboard in order to get any bedbugs underneath the carpet or in the baseboard. I did the same thing to the rest of the apartment. Later on in the evening, I found a bedbug crawling up the wall with some white dust on it. It was wobbling. I have left the dust around for 2 months now and I have been able to sleep. Haven't seen any bedbugs or bedbug feces. I gave this thing a week to say if it worked or not because having bedbugs has been traumatizing. I even bought tempo sc ultra and IGR just incase it didn't work. IT WORKS!!!! Thank GOD!! I have been living with them for 2 years and now I thank GOD and Domyownpestcontrol for this product!!!. I'm planning on using this product for a year since the building is having bedbug problems. Forgot to mention that before using this product, the building sent an exterminator a total of 8 times in 2 years. I noticed that the exterminator was just not doing his job, he cared more about making a bigger profit than having the customer happy. That's when I decided to do research on doing my own extermination and I found this website.

    5 of 5 stars  Bee's everywhere!!!
    By in Van Dyne, WI on 08/16/2013
    Verified Purchase

    We moved this spring and come to find we were not alone! By mid-summer we found that we had 3 wall yellow jacket nests and 2 of those nests were in the siding of the house. The 3rd was in the wall of the chicken coupe and you could hear the hum of the bee hive more than 12 feet away. IT WAS HUGE!!!! WE had tried over the counter sprays but could not reach the route of the problem without tearing apart the siding and walls. We have children and were very concerned for their safety, so we purchased the Tempo 1% Dust along with the B&G Bulb Duster 1150. Results were amazing!! Within 20-30 minutes of dusting inside the walls using the attachments, the buzzing and scratching of the bee's were GONE!!! After dusting in the walls, 1 of nests did have bee's that found another exit and made their way into the house. The one's in the house were so almost out of it that they were flying really slow or just walking out of the hole one after another and falling over dying right there. Any bee's that were outside of the nest during our time of dusting only flew up the entrance of the hole but wouldn't go in and flew away. I am extremely impressed with this product and I know that this will not be my last problem with bee's here, so I will be more than sure to have this on hand at all times. Our neighbors have now found ground hives and nests in the back of their house. We told them our success with this product and they are now buying some too. THANK YOU!!!

    By Jo in Minneapolis, MN on 09/13/2010

    Wasps had nested between the exterior stucco and an interior wall (crawled in through a tiny crack in a window frame). The first thing I tried was the messy foam stuff which did absolutely no good. Tempo 1% stopped all activity with only one application. I then caulked the area and all has been peaceful since. Thanks for a great product I would gladly recommend.

    By Brad in Chester Springs, PA on 08/12/2010

    If you have found the nest, this is the product to use. Within minutes of use, the ants were crawling (stumbling) from the nest and dying. I noticed immediately that ants which were once exploring areas in the house were no longer present. Product is very strong, one may want to use a respirator and goggles.

    5 of 5 stars  Tempo 1% Dust Solved My problem
    By Howard in Memphis, TN on 07/20/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I had two wasp nests with entry holes at each end of my front porch. After a week of using liquid spray and killing about 40-50 wasp I knew I needed something else because there seemed to be more wasp than before. I decided to try Tempo 1% Dust even though I had my doubts it would work. Boy was I wrong. So early one morning about sunup I loaded my Bellow Hand Duster and applied about 5 good pumps into each entry hole and a couple on the outside. To my amazement not a single wasp flew out. Later that day the wasps were flying around as usual but the next day they were gone!...Like Magic! And I still have plenty of product left if necessary for future use. Can’t beat that and it’s so easy to use even a “Caveman” could do it.

    By Steve in Versailles, IN on 06/03/2010
    Verified Purchase

    Easy to use. Just fill duster and squeeze. I have been dealing w/ carpenter bees for a while. Tried sprays. If you got a direct hit it would kill them. Almost impossible while they are in flight. Sprayed in and around holes. If bee is going in or coming out and got a taste, it worked. However, after 10 minutes or so it drys up and is useless. Tempo dust IS the answer. I dusted holes; about 150 of 'em, in the morning. By early afternoon started to see some DEAD bees. Dusted again two days later in evening. After a couple of days and no bees, plugged holes w/ 3/8" plugs in the morning. I am now grilling out and enjoying back porch again.  Nothing but good say about it.

QIs this the best insecticide dust to use on our bee wasp hornet or yellow jacket problem?
We have a bee/wasp/hornet/yellow jacket problem. In other words, we are not sure about the critters, We believe they are wasps. Some of the hives appear to be in the ground, and others in the usual areas. Will this product work on all of the above, in case we are wrong about our assumption? Also, will it work for the hives that are underground?

AYes, this is our most popular dust for bees in general.  Wether they are in the ground or in your home going under a roof shingle, or a paper nest out in the open, one to two quick puffs from this dust will knock them out.  You should get a hand duster to apply the product.  Also, it is best to apply the dust late at night or very early morning when the bees are less active.  Night usually works best.

QHow do I use Tempo Dust to get rid of a bee or wasp nest?
Is the Tempo 1% Dust effective if the nest cannot be found and it is assumed the bees are either in the wall or ceiling? If dusted in the openings, will the bees take the dust into the nest to kill all off?

AYes, the Tempo 1% Dust is our best selling product to eradicate bees.  If you know where the opening is where the bees are going in and out, and you dust that opening, the bees will get the dust on the hair on their legs and carry it back to the nesting area.  Usually this will eradicate a bee colony within 24 - 48 hours depending on the size.  It is best to treat the opening late at night or very early morning when they are all inside and less active.

QHow can I kill wasps that are nesting behind soffits or shutters?
I've seen several wasps going behind the ribbed gaps between the aluminum soffit and the facia. I've also seen several going behind decorative window shutters. It appears that we have a fair amount of wasp actvity in our area. I'd also like to know how to prevent them from nesting in the furnace inlet/exhaust pvc pipes or the chimney flue. Thanks for your help!

AWe recommned that you use a hand duster and apply a dust such as Tempo dust to the holes where the wasps are going in and out. The dust will help eliminate the wasps in the nest and any other wasps returning to the nest. Tempo dust will stay effective for several months as long as it is dry. We are not aware of a product that would eliminate the wasp pheromone to help stop wasps from returning to a particular area.  After dusting in the void where the wasps have a built a nest you can try spraying the siding with a product such as Talstar P. You can spray once a month and any wasp that lands on treated areas will be eliminated within about 24 hours which should stop new wasps from being able to build a nest.

QI know you do not recommend killing honey bees but they are under our trim and coming in the house.
What do you recommend? Thank you for your time.

AThe first thing you can do is contact your local cooperative extension office and ask for the phone number for your local honey bee farmer. Many bee farmers will come remove honey bees free of charge because of the recent decline in the honey bee population. If this is not an option for you, you can use a hand duster to apply a dust product such as Tempo Dust into and around the area where the bees seem to be gaining access to your home. Over a period of a couple of days to a week (timeline will depend on how many bees are contacting the treated area) this will kill off the colony that has taken up residence in your home. Any insecticide applications should be done very early in the morning or very late in the evening when the bees are less active. After the bees have been eliminated it is important to remove the bee hive from the void where the bees were nesting. Failure to remove the hive can lead to mold issues and secondary infestation from hive beetles and other insects. If the bee hive is in an area that is not easily accessible you may want to consider hiring a professional pest control operator.

QHow long until yellow jackets stop emerging into house after treatment with Tempo 1% Dust?
I have a yellow jacket nest in a house wall. They were getting access to the house at an opening between the roof and the siding. Three weeks ago I treated the opening twice with Tempo dust over two days and since then there has been no activity there. However, dead and alive yellow jackets continue to appear inside the house, at a rate of 1-2 per day, the same rate prior to treatment. Must I drill holes in the wall to find and treat the actual nest, or will they die out in time? And how long? I have not been able to find any other activity by worker wasps into and out of the structure.

A

Tempo Dust will usually eradicate a nest within 24 - 48 hours depending on the size and depending on whether all entry and exit points were treated.  As long as they are contacting the area where the dust was applied, then it should kill them all.  It might be best to also drill holes in the area you suspect the nest to be to kill the larvae which may now be old enough to emerge.

QDoes Tempo 1% Dust kill wasp eggs and larvae?
I need to exterminate a wasp's nest and want to make sure to kill all the eggs and larvae too.

A

Yes, Tempo 1% Dust is a great choice to apply to the wasp nest if you have access to the opening. You should treat late in the evening or early in the morning when the insects are the least active. The wasps that come in contact with it will transfer from bee to bee, killing adults and larvae.

QDelta Dust, Tempo Dust, or...?
We have a bed bug infestation in our apartment and the exterminator who's been spraying has mysteriously disappeared and his company no longer answers their phones, and the spray doesn't seem to be working at any rate. Is it okay to apply Delta Dust (which I already have) directly to our couch (which seems to be the most heavily infested) and other furniture, in addition to the crevicies and whatnot around the apt.? Or would Tempo Dust be better? I heard that the strain of Bed Bugs in Cincinnati have become resistant to Delta Dust. Would you recommend I get some Bedlam Plus as well? I have a plastic cover for my mattress, but that doesn't help us with the couch. The exterminator said we'd probably have to end up throwing the couch out. I don't want to do that as it was quite expensive. Also, do you have any further suggestions as to what we might do? Thanks you so very much!!

ASome Bed Bugs strains have become resistant to pyrethroid insecticides like Tempo and Delta Dust. If you suspect a resistancy issue then a pyrethroid based insecticide would not be recommended. CimeXa Insecticide Dust is the newest product available in the battle against bed bugs. CimeXa Dust is 100% Silica dust (pyrethroid free), is very safe, odorless, and will not stain.  CimeXa Dust will last up to 10 years when applied to undisturbed areas like wall voids, or frames of some furniture such as couches. It is very effective on bed bugs, especially pyrethroid resistant bed bugs. When pests come into contact with CimeXa, the product clings to their exoskeleton and absorbs the waxy coating, causing death from dehydration. You would want to reat the interior framework, cracks and joints of the furniture, and the folds, tufts and edges of cushions and other upholstered areas.

QWhich product is better for getting rid of Yellow Jacket Wasps, Delta Dust or Tempo 1% Dust?
I have Yellow Jackets under my cedar siding of my home. I also had to kill a couple inside my house.

A

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.

ATempo Dust is great for Cicada Killers or any other flying insect.  In the evening when they are in their burrow you can treat each individual burrow with 2 quick puffs of Tempo Dust using a hand duster.  For overall prevention you can apply Cyperwp over landscaped areas where they like to nest to deter future burrows from being made.

AAbsolutely!  You can apply Tempo Dust anywhere you see wasps, yellow jackets, and any other pest for that matter are entering either your home or another structure.  You can even use Tempo Dust for yellow jackets nesting in the ground or in a nest hanging from a tree.  Tempo Dust is by far our best selling dust for flying insects.  It will typically wipe out a nuisance next within 24 hours.  It is best to apply the dust in the late evening when they are not actively flying around anymore.  1 to 2 puffs from a hand duster is all that you need.

QDo you recommend Tempo 1% dust for roaches or is there anything better?

ATempo 1% dust will kill roaches, but it is some what repellent. If you have a current infestation we recommend using the following combination of products: 1. roach bait gel, 2. insect growth regulator, 3. residual insecticide spray. We offer a roach kit that contains all of the products that you need to get rid of roaches.
