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  best stuff around
    By Roy in kingman az on February 1, 2016

    I mix this stuff 16 mil per 2 gallons. I spray in the window tracks (dribble), door jambs (wet spray), baseboards(dribble) and about 3 feet out around the entire house exterior(medium wet). Keeps bugs out and the ones that come in die. I use it for my garage (2400sf) pump house and storage containers. Kills everything. This is the product that the local bug guys use. I also mix it with my weed killer to use around the parking area at 8ml per 2 gallons(light spray). Keeps the ants and termites under control. I think it is over priced, but it does the job. I spray once per month (some times 6weeks) March to September. Then skip it the rest of the year.

    5 of 5 Stars  Bird Mite Battle - I won!
    By Dominica in TX on November 25, 2015
    Verified Purchase

    My mite issue started with birds nesting in my vents on the 2nd floor of my house. I always heard birds and actually thought they were in my attic, but they were nesting in the vents. Got the vents sealed like with wire mesh by a company in April or May 2015 and the nightmare started the following month. The company found a nest and a dead bird inside the vent and told me all was okay. Yeah right! Now fast forward a month or so. I noticed bites on my leg one morning, then also saw a mite crawling across my cell phone screen and across my body. Then I did like everybody did and bought the local Bed bug products from Home Depot/Lowes which didnít work. My dad later came to my house to check on my condition and to spray my house with more powerful chemicals he had. He also checked on my vents and saw that there was 2 more dead birds and a broken egg. He told me the company did a horrible job with sealing the vents with all the birds and garbage they let stay. So my dad cleaned out the vents, sprayed with the heavy duty chemicals and all of my house on the inside. He also added the wire mesh back on the vents as before. I didnít know the magnitude of work that was involved with getting rid of the mites. I bought the bedbug kit #3 from DMOPC, but only sprayed the inside my house, all rooms. I dusted with the bulb duster as well. I followed the directions as if I was trying to fight Bed Bugs (BB). However, what I didnít know was I needed to stay consistent with exterminating the mites weekly. I had only treated my house once or twice with the kit. I even switched to an organic cedar and fogged my house and attic. Worst mistake ever. The hydrated silica in the cedar messing up my stove and cooking pots. Plus there was no residual killing power in Cedar oil and it was a losing battle using Cedar oil. So I went back DMOPC. Next purchase was Gentrol and Onslaught. Iíd mix the two and sprayed the attic, eaves, outside house, garage, and entire inside of house (even ceiling). I vacuumed almost daily. Spraying the ceiling was extreme but mites crawl everywhere. They donít just congregate to one spot like the bed as BB do. To prevent the mites from getting resistant to Onslaught, I also bought ExciteR, Bifen, Permethrin SFR 36.8%, and Tempo SC Ultra. I would rotate an Insecticides with an IGR, such as Gentrol and sprayed weekly. I think what truly got rid of the mites was when I started using CimeXa. Towards the end of my battle, I begin to spray my house (all the rooms listed above), then while damp from the spray, I dusted lightly with CimeXa so it could stick to the damp area from the Insecticide. CimeXa is the only dust I researched that is effective while wet/damp and itís good for 10 years. I even sprayed my vents (in ceiling of all rooms) with D-Force HPX and dusted with CimeXa. My infestation of the mites was slightly moderate and per directions of most of the insecticides I bought, suggested to spray weekly for heavy infestations. What I found out was, you canít treat bird mite infestation in the house with one treatment or one product. I stopped vacuuming daily towards the end of my battle when I began to dust the cracks, corners, ceilings with CimeXa (over the dampen wall space from the insecticide) because I didnít want to vacuum up the very product I needed to stay in place to kill any mites crawling on the floor. Now, Iím back to my normal weekly cleaning once a week. Gone are the weekends of spraying everything every 4 days. I sprayed every 4 days because I read the life cycle of a mite is 5-7 days and I wanted to get ahead of the life cycle by spraying and vacuuming the mites up. The mites infested my house May 2015 and itís now Nov 2015 and the issue is resolved. Granted it took me until mid October to start with the weekly rotation of spraying, then in late October, I dusted CimeXa (one application) over the dampen sprayed areas. Throughout this entire time, I wore the Safety kit, gloves, and mask each time I sprayed. I turned on my ceiling fans and opened windows after dusting to help clear the light cloud of dust. I would also state because of attrition, the mites are gone as well. They keep dying, but no more are coming back with the combination of the IGR and dust.

    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.

    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!

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.

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.

January 18, 2016 Ruben from Lawndale, Ca asked:

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.

December 30, 2015 Pat from Texas asked:

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.

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.
