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
    • 32 mL is not labeled for use in and around residential areas
  • 240 mL: makes up to 30 gallons of finished solution and treats up to 30,000 sq. ft.

Pet safe: Yes, after product dries.
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 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!!!!

    By Mary on August 5, 2010

    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 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.

    By Chris 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 !!!!!!!

    I thought the product was really good. Certainly time will tell but the exterminator came yesterday and gave us the all clear. I mixed it spray container, the sprayed bedboard, boxspring, base of floor, enterance only to room. Did the head board of bed. cease in side table. He saw no signs of bed bugs and that is what I wanted to hear. I used it twice since he was original here. The instruction were good once I found them because they looked like the label to me but you pull it off and unfold it.

    5 of 5 Stars  Amazing Product!
    By Bob on December 17, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    I sprayed our entire first floor as well as the outside concrete foundation of our house. I obtained the product to use primarily in our kitchen for water bugs and cockroaches. Within 30 minutes of spraying as per the directions I had water bugs were coming out of places I didn't know they could hide. The chemical penetrated their bodies and they were rolling over on their backs and barely moving and eventually died. The next day there were approximately 30 more on the floor and all were dead. I sprayed the entire first floor again a week later as per instruction suggestions and not a live bug was found during the spraying or after. So apparently the 1st application did its job well. I doubled the dosage both times at my discretion. Probably didn't need to do this, but the instructions suggested to increase dosage to insure a quicker kill. I am 66 years old and have never used a chemical that killed bugs that quickly and lasts!

    We recently moved into a house that had an infestation of box elder bugs. A friend recommended Tempo, it had worked for him. I ordered and was pleased with the quick delivery. The application went well and we saw immediate results. I applied a second round a week later and the bugs are completely gone. My wife is the happiest i have seen her in awhile. Thank you.

    By Jim on October 16, 2014

    Absolutely the best insecticide I have found after using many, many different brands at local box stores and specialty stores over many years of doing my own homeowner bug/insect removal. A little costly up front but in the long run cheaper than the many ineffective and high odor major brands. Never again for me! This is the last one you will ever need! I use the 16ml/gal water inside and out with fantastic results and mix only as much as I need so it is always fresh. 5 star plus!

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.

Tempo SC is not recommended to be used inside the home to treat for Bird Mites. There are a few key steps you need to do before using any insecticides. Please read our How to Get Rid of Bird Mite Article for product recommendations and how to treat for this pest. We also recommend contacting your local extension office with a sample of the mite for treatment options in your area.

November 6, 2014 Dave from Ripon Wi 54071 asked:

QIs it safe to use Tempo SC Ultra for fleas inside the house? Will it harm anything in the house?
If not how much Tempo SC Ultra per 2 gallons of water?

A Tempo SC Ultra should NOT be used for flea control indoors! We would recommend our Indoor Flea Kit as the items in this kit are safe and effective for indoor flea treatments. The Indoor Flea Kit is designed to treat the interiors of homes, apartments, and similar areas with existing flea infestations. The Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol can be used on most floor surfaces and pet bedding, while the CimeXa Dust can be applied to carpets, other floor coverings, and in cracks and crevices where fleas may harbor. Both products are extremely low risk to pets and people and can, therefore, be used in sensitive treatment areas. The Indoor Flea Kit is safe, ready-to-use, and does not require additional application equipment. This kit is designed to treat areas up to 2,000 square feet.

October 3, 2014 Karen from Delray Beach,florida asked:

QDoes Tempo SC Ultra work for the elimination of ticks in the yard and in the house?
They seem to be immune to the products.

A Yes, Tempo SC Ultra is labeled to kill ticks. It is recommended that you use an IGR (insect growth regulator) as well to stop the ticks from producing. Archer IGR is an excellent IGR that is photostable for up to 14 days so it works in direct sunlight. It will work for up to 7 months. For your first treatment, you will use Tempo SC Ultra and Archer IGR. The next treatment will be 14 days later with the Tempo SC Ultra only. You will do supplemental treatments as needed after the first two treatments.

October 2, 2014 Maribel from Rio Hondo Tx asked:

QHow fast does Tempo SC Ultra work on roaches?
How fast does it work on roaches???


Tempo SC Ultra could take a while to work because it is a residual product. It will provide a faster knockdown because it does contain two active ingredients that work together.

When combating roaches, we would recommend using Gentrol IGR (insect growth regulator) to stop the roaches from reproducing.

QHow long before rain does Tempo SC Ultra have to be applied to still be effective?
We sprayed yesterday and it rained a few hours later. How long does it have to be before it rains for the spraying to be most effective?

A Tempo SC Ultra needs to have at least 4 hours to dry properly before the rain happens. This product holds up very well in the rain. If it rained before the product had enough time to dry, it is possible that it may not be as effective.

September 30, 2014 Jacquie from Newtown Ct asked:

QDoes Tempo SC Ultra kill flea eggs specifically? And is there a product Tempo Ultra SE or just SC?

September 28, 2014 Kevin from Idabel, Ok asked:

QShould I expect them to be gone instantly?
We have two cats, but they never go outdoors. This last week we suddenly had a house full of fleas. Followed the instructions for Tempo precisely just last night. Not only are they not gone, but they seem almost just as rampant. Shouldn't they be gone by now? Ideas, anyone? Thank you.

A Tempo is a great product, but since you cannot apply as a broadcast, we do not necessarily recommend it for fleas. Please review our Flea control page. We recommend using our Indoor Flea Control kit. This kit contains two cans of Alpine Aerosol which is one of the safest professional grade flea sprays for use indoors and was recently classified as a reduced risk product by the EPA. It provides excellent control of fleas and contains an IGR as well, which prevents adult fleas from being able to lay eggs, eventually halting the flea reproductive cycle.  You'll also get two bottles of CimeXa Dust which is a safe, odorless, non-staining dust that is perfect for spreading on carpets, floor coverings, in cabinets, under furniture cushions, and other areas where fleas tend to harbor.  As fleas come into contact with CimeXa, the dust literally dries the fleas out causing eventual death.  These two products together create a powerful double punch providing excellent, safe and lasting indoor flea control.
