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 two sizes:

  • 240 mL (8 fl oz): makes up to 30 gallons of finished solution and treats up to 30,000 sq. ft.
  • 900 mL (31 fl oz): makes up to 112 gallons of finished solution and treats up to 112,000 sq. ft.

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!!!!

    By in Chillicothe, Mo. on 08/17/2013

    INSTRUCTIONS: for those of you who cant figure out this funny bottle.....remove cap on large section of the bottle, remove saftety cover,replace this cap but leave a slight looseness to allow for breathing. Do this for the small bottle section too. SQEEZE this large section an the small section will fill with the insecticide. Use 8ml for regular use (light infestations) use 16 ml for heavy infestations. Add this amount to a 1 gallon sprayer, and fill with water to fill line, spray per other reviewers guidance, it's all here. BED BUGS: ........ready for this......get this......had some stuff in storage at a storage unit. When we got it out we brought home bed bugs! There is NOTHING on the market but Tempo that will ELIMINATE these little blood-sucking demons. They were not biting me, only my husband, nothing we tried worked, i sprayed the mattress,boxsprings, CARPET, baseboard, walls, etc. Did every room in my house. Basically i went berserk with the sprayer. And i did it at 16ml per gallon. I did wash bedding and clothes in HOT and dried them on HIGH. I "cooked" pillows in the dyer for 30 minutes, 2 pillows at a time. JOB DONE! No more bed bugs! ANTS: We had one of those huge old satelite dishes removed from our yard which turned inside-out the largest ant hill IN THE WORLD and they were PISSED! Their "road" thru our house (1st to the bathroom then later to the kitchen) went across our NECKS when we were in bed! I had 5 products goin at once to try to get rid of the little black ants! None of them made any difference, we were INFESTED! When I sprayed for BED BUGS I "accidentally" killed what I believe seemed like 1/3 of the world's ant population! FLIES: If you have a fly problem this is your solution. We have animals and of course their poop draws flies. Clean and clean with all our might but there were still flies. I HATE FLIES..! With Tempo flies can come BUT THEY WILL DIE......bah ha ha ha HA HA! (she laughed wickedly) PRICE: I bought this product locally for $62 plus tax, never again, THIS is the place to buy this product. BEES: PLEASE don't kill bees! Get a Bee Keeper to come and get them, we need them on this planet. They'll do it in a HEARTBEAT! BUTTERFLIES: I did not spray my flower beds because I wanted to see butterflies and of course FEED BEES? REVIEWS: These reviews are the reason I used Tempo in the 1st place. Thanks for the review process!

    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  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  Works unbelievably well.
    By Debora in Columbus Ohio on 10/16/2017

    I have spent the last half hour in an oddly gratifying manner- vacuuming up the disgusting little corpses of stink bugs and cockroaches. I had long ago given up on ridding my home of roaches, the unadvertised feature I discovered soon after purchase. Black Flag and Hot Shot thinned their numbers, they seemed to enjoy Raid, and while boric acid and diatomaceous earth helped I would still see the loathsome little buggers on a regular basis. I bought this product for an annual stink bug invasion which is more pronounced than normal. I ordered a couple of bottles of IGR hoping that the combo might thin the vile cockroaches a little. The few living specimens I have encountered this morning have been on their backs, flailing their nasty little roach legs frantically in the air. It brings an evil smile to my face. Die! Die, miserable vermin! You have vexed me for far too long! Your apocalypse is here! Seriously, the stuff works like nothing I have ever tried. You will not be disappointed.

    5 of 5 stars  Temp SC Ultra
    By Will in Kansas City, MO on 10/06/2017

    We found some bed bugs in our sons room and we immediately called a local pest control company and we used them for several months with no results. They actually really didn't care just came in a sprayed a little bit here and there. I started to research treatments on my own and found Temp SC Ultra. I sprayed the entire house top to bottom, mattresses, box springs, furniture, etc. Now I did mix it way more than what they recommended but I tell you what we sprayed once per week for two weeks and they are totally gone. I would recommend this product and I didn't have any issues mixing heavy, heavy, heavy duty strength. I would also say to clean, clean, clean, vacuum a lot and wash dry everything often. You can beat these little bastards just takes diligence.

    2 of 5 stars  Didn't kill all bugs
    By Brandy in Columbus Ohio on 10/02/2017

    It killed some bugs but not all.. I sprayed (and yes followed directions specifically then I added a little more) then sprayed again 2 weeks later. I would see a few bugs here and there dead in the house and outside because I sprayed outside as well. But I see more alive bugs than I see dead. Especially spiders and stink bugs. A lot of stink bugs. Given the chance I will not buy this product again. I will try something else. I purchased something 5-6 years ago that worked but couldn't remember the name of it... I will continue to look for the mysterious product...

    5 of 5 stars  Tempo SC Ultra works on Spiders
    By Harris in Newnan,GA.30265 on 10/01/2017

    I have been fighting very small spiders and their webs and spider drops on window seals and patio furniture since I moved into this house three years ago. Neighbors said this was because of the lake behind our homes. After reading and watching videos,Tempo has 100 % worked for me. Raked back mulch 4-6 inches from the house, used 16 ml the first time around the house, 2 ft. from base of house and 2 ft. up the base of the house. Sprayed in areas, window shutters, drain pipes from the roof, dark areas where they had made a real big mess. With in 3-4 days small dead spiders all over the place. Waited 10 days and did the same thing using on 8 ml of Tempo. Now three weeks later, NO spider droppings any where! I now have neighbors trying Tempo. I believe one of the key things that you have to do first is to rake back pine straw /mulch from the base of your house.

    1 of 5 stars  Tempo SC Ultra for Yellow Jackets
    By Matthew in Hickory, NC on 10/01/2017

    Tempo SC Ultra was used by me to fight an infestation of Yellow Jackets. This product had absolutely no effect on these wasps and they acted as if they were being sprayed with pure water. I cannot vouch for this product's effectiveness on other insects but do not waste your time and money using it on Yellow Jackets.

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


Tempo 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?


Yes, 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.

QHow much Tempo SC Ultra would you use to mix in a 26oz spray bottle? Is it safe to apply with birds in another room?


Per the product label, Tempo SC Ultra must be mixed at the rate of 8-16 mL per gallon of water. It is not really designed to be diluted into a smaller amount than that.

If there are birds in the area that you will be treating, we recommend that you consult a vet before applying any products, as birds can be sensitive to many pesticides.

QI still have carpenter ants inside the house even, after 2 treatments with Tempo SC Ultra. What should I do?


While Tempo SC Ultra will kill any carpenter ants that come into contact with a treated area, it will not eradicate an ant colony. We would recommend our Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit. The kit contains professional pest control products to control carpenter ants found inside structures, including Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel and Maxforce Complete Granular Bait, along with bait plate stations that allow you to apply and monitor both baits simultaneously. You will also get Temprid Ready Spray, a ready-to-use version of the popular Temprid SC that contains two active ingredients for both initial knockdown and residual non-repellent activity.

QCan Tempo SC Ultra be mixed with Talstar P?


Tempo SC Ultra and Talstar P are both synthetic pyrethroid insecticides that work very similarly, so there really is no reason to mix these two products together at the same time. You could use them in rotation with each other to prevent insect resistance, but we would not recommend using them at the same time. Using these together could actually create a repellent effect and cause insects to avoid the treated areas instead of contacting the active ingredient.
