Tempo SC Ultra

The active ingredient in TEMPO SC Ultra is beta-cyfluthrin, which is powerful against pests with no odor and less visible residue. TEMPO SC delivers the power of a powder formulation in a liquid, and allows for more even disbursement during application. Tempo SC Ultra effectively controls a broad spectrum of indoor, outdoor, and turf and ornamental pests.

TEMPO SC comes in three sizes:

  • 32 mL: makes 2 gallons of finished solution and treats up to 2,000 sq. ft.
    • Easy to use - mix with 2 gallons of water and spray
    • 32 mL size is labeled for use in and around barns, horse stables and animal quarters - see label for details

NOT FOR SALE TO: Can not be sold to NY, SC, AK, CT, VT
Manufactured By: Bayer

Tempo SC Ultra effectively controls over 100 different types of indoor, outdoor, turf and ornamental insect pests. Tempo SC Ultra is a suspension concentrate that delivers the power of a powder formulation in a liquid. It's easy to use too-less messy to handle, needs less agitation and is more evenly dispersed during application than other products. Tempo SC Ultra has no odor, is non-staining, and has a long lasting residual of up to 3 months. Some microencapsulated formulas may seem less expensive than Tempo SC Ultra- until you actually use them. But Tempo SC Ultra has a higher insect mortality rate, so you don't waste time and money on retreating areas.

Indoor Application:

For indoor applications using a hand sprayer mix 8 ml-16 ml of Tempo concentrate into one (1) gallon of water and apply as a spot, crack, crevice, and perimeter spray wherever insect pests are found to nest, forage or harbor. (always completely read and follow product label)

Outdoor Application:

For outdoor applications using a hand sprayer, mix 8 ml-16 ml of Tempo concentrate into one (1) gallon of water. Spray finished solution around perimeter of structure including door frames and window frames. For more complete instructions on outdoor applications for turf and ornamental insect pests please refer to the product label.

Tips for Use

* For maximum perimeter control of pests with Tempo Ultra SC, treat the soil, turf and substrate adjacent to buildings.
* Also treat the building foundation, walls, around doors, windows, and soffit areas.
* Because mulch and pine straw make control of perimeter pests more difficult, you should rake back before application with Tempo Ultra SC, wherever possible.

    5 of 5 Stars  Outstanding Product!!! NO MORE ROACHES!!!!
    By Lou in Louisiana on February 24, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    Our house had a cockroach problem for about 4 years. Tried two different national name exterminator companies, paying approximately $350 a year. Roaches would be found dead after exterminator visit, but after about 2 months live roaches would come back and I didn't understand why. I heard about this product from a retired exterminator friend and he told me how to use it. I ended my exterminator contract and decided to do my own exterminating. I mix between 8-16 mls in a 1 gallon sprayer (can get sprayer at any garden center for about $15.00). I spray completely around the foundation of my house; approx 6-8 inches high and 6-8 inches out from the house. I also spray the cracks in the windows and doors and use a lower concentration in my house. I started using this in 2006 and have not seen a live roach in my house since!! I spray 2 times a year, usually June (when roaches come out) and January. I pay approx $45.00 per bottle and have only gone through 2 bottles in 5 years. That's $90.00 in 5 years versus $350 each year. You can't beat this product!!!!

    5 of 5 Stars  Great Stuff!
    By Mary in Gilbertsville, KY on August 5, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    I have used Tempo SC Ultra for 2 years now and I absolutely love it! It has no chemical odor, kills on contact and also has residual power. I hate spiders and spiders hate Tempo SC Ultra...That is my primary use for it but it takes care of all my insect problems. I live near a large lake and the insect population is high. I use it about once a month from March through November around the house foundation, in the garage and in the crawl space. I find lots of bugs - but they are DEAD ones! Mary Lou Gilbertsville, Ky

    5 of 5 Stars  Instant Results and Safe for Chickens!
    By Jamie in Southern Nevada on October 19, 2010

    We have chickens so we were trying to use whatever pet/environmentally friendly solutions we could to fight off the bugs. Some of these worked for a while but over time it got to the point where I couldn't even step onto the back patio without dodging roaches, crickets and all other assortment of pests. They were getting into our house through crevices and I just couldn't take it anymore! My dad recommended this stuff and we broke down and purchased it and sprayed the same day it arrived in the mail. We were careful to lock our chickens up before we did. In the morning we walked out onto our patio and found hundreds of dead roaches, crickets and spiders. It was really quite disgusting, but very effective. We cleaned them up before letting the chickens out so they wouldn't eat them. However after we let them out they still found several dead ones that we'd missed so we watched the chickens, fearing that they'd get sick but they never did. For the next several days we threw their eggs away until we felt like the pesticide had all passed. Now we're bug free and the chickens are fine. I highly recommend this product to anyone with bug problems, particularly if you have pets.

    5 of 5 Stars  Tired of Carpenter Ants in Oklahoma
    By Chris in Owasso, Oklahoma on May 19, 2010

    I used different kinds of ant killer with no success. I tried Tempo SC Ultra one time and the ants are gone. I spent more money on insecticides that didn't work than 1 bottle of Tempo cost. This stuff is AWESOME !!!!!!!

    5 of 5 Stars  Ant control in indoor places
    By Bill in Katy texas on November 17, 2015

    Awesome product. Got rid of the household bugs and ants that invaded our place. Out concern was to use something with good knockdown power and yet be safe to use indoors. In conjunction with a bait product this was very effective.

  • 1 of 5 Stars  Dissapointed
    By MM in Nashville, tn on November 12, 2015

    I bought this in hopes that it would help repel Asian beetles (ladybugs). I followed the directions and sprayed it along the problem areas of my home. Unfortunately it didn't work. It only kills ladybugs if they are directly sprayed. It does NOT repel them. I had ladybugs covering the south side of my house on the exact areas I had sprayed just 24 hours earlier. Also, The ladybugs don't die immediately when sprayed. The day after spraying I noticed green stains all over my house. It was obviously ladybug excrement from where they were stressed by the chemical before dying. Now I need to have my house pressure wash to remove the stains. I've ordered a lot of products from domyownpestcontrol.com and been please with easy purchase, UNTIL now. This product did not do what I wanted it to do. Now I have a bigger mess that I did before I started.

    By Anna in Vinto, OH on November 10, 2015

    We love this product. Live close to the woods on all four sides. After about second and third hard frost the Asian beetles move in. We spray around our windows and doors and it keeps them out. We sweep up in piles. If it rains we spray again. Tell everyone about Tempo!

  • 5 of 5 Stars  So far so good!
    By Jeff in Denver, CO on October 27, 2015

    I had been using Ortho Home Defense and some natural stuff (peppermint oil) but was still seeing a lot of spiders. Sprayed Tempo inside and out, and I haven't seen a single spider. Not even dead ones. I also love that it has no odor. Though it did make me sneeze while spraying. I'd recommend wearing a mask.

    I love tempo spray it is the best product you can buy if you're having problem with any kind of insect be it crawling, or flying, it has no odor it's safe to use around your pets. We were having problems with wasps a lot of them I sprayed them once it kills quickly, they don't like the odor if there is any survivors they leave, it's a great spray good for any thing.

  • 3 of 5 Stars  Positive recommendation to order
    By Leana in Ontonagon, MI on October 18, 2015

    Just received product a little late in season for spraying; therefore, can only give 3 stars. Was given a high recommendation by a friend to use on our cluster fly problem in our cabin. Will give 5 stars for cost, was cheapest found on internet. Will see next season if it works.

QIs Tempo SC Ultra safe to use around dogs and in the house?

ATempo SC Ultra is considered a general use insecticide and is labeled for outside and inside use. It is odorless, and very safe to use around children or pets. The general rule is that while spraying you keep children or pets in another room or outside to play. After about one hour it should be dry and it is perfectly safe to allow kids and/or pets back in the room. This product is only strong enough to kill tiny insects, and would have no effect on animals when used correctly.

March 16, 2012 Brad from Florence, Az asked:

QDoes Tempo SC kill bed bugs and bed bug eggs?

ATempo SC is labeled to for bedbugs and will kill active bedbugs but it is not labeled to kill bedbug eggs. Most products cannot penetrate the exterior of the egg and are not effective at killing bedbug eggs. We do carry a couple of products that are labeled to kill bedbug eggs. Bedlam and Sterifab are labeled to kill all stages of bedbugs including eggs. You should note that even products that are labeled to kill bedbug eggs are not able to kill 100% of the eggs and you will still be required to do follow up treatments every 7-10 days until no further evidence (bites, blood stains, cast skins, fecal deposits) of bedbugs is noticed.

August 8, 2009 Dennis asked:

QDoes Tempo SC Ultra kill spiders?

AYes, Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to kill spiders.  Spiders are very difficult to control and most residual insecticides like Tempo SC Ultra will kill any spider that it is physically sprayed on, but new spiders entering the area are very difficult for any insecticide to control.  This is because spiders bodies are high off of the ground and they do not groom their legs like other insects do.  How these products mainly control spiders is that they kill the spiders prey (other insects), and if there is no food around, then the spiders will either starve to death or move on.

November 13, 2015 Tyler from Guttenberg, Ia asked:

QWhich product is better to use against Springtails? Tempo SC Ultra or Transport Mikron?


Both Tranport Mikron and Tempo SC are labeled to treat for Silverfish. Picking between the two Transport Mikron would be best. Transport Mikron combines not only one powerful active ingredient, but two! Dilute at 1.25oz Transport Mikron per gallon water for Springtail control.

November 8, 2015 Lena from Seattle, Washington asked:

QCan I mix Tempo SC Ultra with Transport Mikron?
Is it safe to combine these two insecticides?


You should not mix Tempo SC Ultra and Transport Mikron together, and you should never mix 2 insecticides together unless both labels specifically state they are safe for mixing with the other product you plan to use. Insecticides are very specifically formulated to work with certain ratios and adding any other chemical to the mix can offset the ability of the product to work properly and the way it was designed. Specifically speaking regarding Transport and Tempo; Transport is a non-repellent insecticide and Tempo is not. Therefore, mixing the two will completely take away the non-repellency of the Transport, wasting the product and its intended use.

QWill Tempo SC Ultra kill biting gnats and noseeums inside the home?


Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for gnats indoors and outdoors. You will use 8-16 ml per gallon of water. This is just a baseboard, crack and crevice treatment and should not be broadcast across any areas. You can also use a fly light such as the FlyWeb Fly Light to catch flying insects inside.

Yes, Tempo SC Ultra is labeled for bed bugs. We would not recommend this being the only item you are using when doing a bed bug treatment though. We would recommend taking a look at our Bed Bug Kits.

QHow does Tempo SC Ultra compare to Suspend Polyzone?


Tempo SC Ultra and Suspend Polyzone have two different active ingredients. The active ingredient in Tempo SC Ultra is beta-cyfluthrin. The active ingredient in Suspend Polyzone is deltamethrin. Suspend Polyzone also has an added polymer that protects the active ingredient from weather, irrigation and mechanical abrasion. The residual for Tempo SC Ultra is approximately 30 days outdoors, while the residual for Suspend Polyzone outdoors is approximately 90 days. They are both general insecticides that are labeled for most of the same pests.

October 10, 2015 Bernard from Cleveland, Ohio asked:

QHow long will Tempo SC Ultra maintain effectiveness after being mixed?
And how do you dispose of leftovers?


You should use any diluted Tempo SC Ultra within 24 hours of mixing. If your spraying is interrupted, then be sure to agitate the tank before finishing your spraying. Solutions left in your sprayer may leave residue that can damage the sprayer or interfere with future applications, and the active ingredient will break down sitting in dilution. You should use up your diluted solution outside and then rinse your tank before allowing it to dry and be stored.
