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 02/24/2011
    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 08/05/2010
    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 10/19/2010

    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 05/19/2010

    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  Asian beetles no more!
    By Beth in Wisconsin on 05/23/2016

    We recently moved to Wisconsin from Minnesota. We choose to rent for a short period of time to help with moving, we found a great deal on a very nice house on the lake in the woods! Perfect! Until we spend the first night! We had just moved in to the worst beetle infestation ever! (The home has been vacant for a couple of years except for the occasional fishermen or hunter that would rent it for a week of woods and water.) In the garage I had to shovel them up with a snow shovel because in the corners they where a foot deep no joke! They where so bad in the house that you could hear them raining on the hardwood floors. We found their major hiding spaces and filled! A large shop vac and still had hundreds crawling all over! I bet I cleaned at least a thousand a day up even after the clean up! On top of that there where carpenter ants in my daughters bed, and spiders everywhere! We moved in in December so could not spray outside. We finally got some nice warm weather and I treated 2x with another common name brand and, still had bugs! My parents have used and swear by Tempo for years! I tried it and, NO BUGS!!!!!! I did have to treat the interior as well as the exterior due to the extensive infestation that was already inside but I have not seen 1 beetle since I treated! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! After spraying around the foundation of the house there where piles of dead beetles all around the house where they had rained out from under the bottom row of siding! If you have a bug problem, don't even waste any time on anything else, buy some tempo it lasts forever!

  • 5 of 5 stars  Tempo SC Ultra
    By Ron in Lincoln, NE on 05/23/2016

    We had several colonies of tiny black ants around our yard that have become a nuisance since April in Nebraska. Unseasonably warmer spring and some rains have cause the ants to go crazy moving to drier climates closer to the house. I needed something with some knockdown power and the ability to last more than a couple days after spraying. I sprayed around the outside of our ranch style house hoping to keep the creepy critters from invading, because of the rainy weather fully upon us. Today after a 1/2" rainstorm I go outside to see along the concrete slab for our 2 car garage door what appears to be the dead and dying ants in the hundreds all piled up where I sprayed the line of death coming into our garage. I and was amazed that after 2 weeks of having been sprayed it's still working! This stuff is the bomb - literally!

  • 5 of 5 stars  Works for me and my friends
    By Joseph in Washington, DC on 05/14/2016

    I bought a 8 oz. bottle and was questioned about it by a friend who saw it in my car. He mentioned that he had a big problem with ants that he couldn't get rid of, so I told him to try the Tempo. He was so impressed with the results that I gave him the original bottle and bought another. He thanked me profusely, and it made me feel good about another person who feels the way that I do about your products. This stuff is NOT a contact killer, it's a long lasting residual killer, and that's what some people don't seem to understand. I don't see ANY type of insect crawling around in my house now, even during the summer months, when they are at their multiplying best, so I know for a fact that this stuff is the bomb. Raid is a contact killer, but if it had solved my pest problem I wouldn't have come to you guys. The people who say this stuff doesn't work are really funny.

  • 5 of 5 stars  It Works!
    By Doug in West Chicago, IL on 05/08/2016

    I live close to a wooded area. Previous owners of my property did nothing to manage pests. As a result, soon as warm weather begins my yard is a haven for yellow jackets, hornets, box elder bugs and just about everything else. I coated the trees/shrubs, house edges, fence posts, foundation areas and anything else I thought might be a home for insects. To my initial dismay I noticed lots of hornets foraging around some of the very trees I coated. It did not seem to work. Many bugs in my yard. I let a week go by before I decided to sit outside in my yard again. Next time I did - ALL GONE! No foraging hornets, no box elders creeping on the house. Any hornet/bee that flies into the yard passes on by quickly. No yellow jackets whatsoever. This stuff works. I think they were pissed off at the initial coat and then left the premises. Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5 stars  Using Tempo SC Ultra
    By Danny in Temple, Texas on 05/02/2016

    I sprayed Tempo around the outside of my home, around the patio door, on the edge of concrete patio, about three feet up of patio walls and underside of our out door plants. Since I did this we do not have mosquitos and the pill bug population has been done away with in these areas. That was 3 days ago.

    By Beverly in West Jefferson , NC on 04/12/2016

    This product is great especially for people who hate spiders. I have used this for several years and no longer see many bugs, spiders, or lady bugs inside or even around the exterior of my house. I have recommended it to many friends and family and they are now believers. Great price for a product that goes a long way, prompt shipping.

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.

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.

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.

QCan Tempo SC Ultra be used to treat fungus gnats on indoor plants?
Currently have fungus flies in some of my house plants' top soil, such as a plant consisting of swedish ivy, braided weeping fig, and wondering new.

A

Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to treat fungus gnats on indoor plants. Please refer to product label for specific instructions. Fungus gnats are present due to overwatering of the plants, so if the soil is allowed to dry completely, then the fungus gnats will die out.

QDoes Tempo SC Ultra kill baby roaches?

A

Tempo SC Ultra will kill adult roaches. It sounds like you need to use an Insect Growth Regulator to break down that life cycle. We recommend using a Gentrol product like Gentrol IGR Concentrate or Gentrol Point Source. Both will stop pest larvae from progressing to the pupal stage of development, so the larvae die before they become breeding adults and prevents future infestations. Please take a few moments to review our article on How to Get Rid of Roaches for a successful roach control program. We do recommend applying the products from one of our Roach Control Kits.

A

Yes, Martins IGR can be mixed with Tempo SC Ultra for fleas outdoors. It is recommended that you do treatments every 14 days.

Archer IGR is also a very good IGR that holds up longer in conditions outdoors. It is photostable, meaning that it does not break down easily in direct sunlight.

QCan I use Tempo SC Ultra without water or do you have it in powder form?
And if I so, in how long can my kids and I can go back to the room?

A

Tempo SC Ultra cannot be used without water; it is a liquid concentrate. Tempo Ultra WP is a wettable powder but also needs to be diluted in water. If you need a powder/dust insecticide you can apply without diluting, you can use something like Tempo 1% inside wall voids. Once you're finished applying it inside wall voids or as instructed on the label and the area is cleaned up from any residue, you and your kids can be back into the area.

QDoes Tempo SC Ultra contain pyrethrum or anything that kills the Mexican kissing bug?

A

Tempo SC Ultra contains a pyrethroid called beta-cyfluthrin, which behaves similarly to natural pyrethrum, except with much longer residual activity. While the product label does not specifically list kissing bugs, this is a non-selective insecticide and would likely affect any insect that would contact it. Please see the following articles from Texas A&M for more information regarding kissing bugs in Texas:

QCan I spray in my cupboards filled with dishes and food with Tempo SC Ultra?
The food is packaged sealed. I have fruit flies. I have sprayed the sink and walls with Tempo but they are still here.

A

No, Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled to be used inside of cabinets. This product should only be used around baseboards, cracks and crevices.

For fruit flies, we do have a contact kill called PI Aerosol that can be used inside of cabinets. Be sure to take everything out the cabinets when you are spraying. Once it is dry, it is safe you to put everything back inside the cabinets. For this and any other fly, it is crucial to identify the source where the flies are breeding in order to eradicate the insects. Please see our Fruit Flies Treatment Guide for more information.
