How Tempo Ultra WP Works
Tempo Ultra WP is a wettable powder concentrate that is mixed with water and applied with a sprayer such as the Chapin Premier 1 gallon hand pump sprayer. Once applied according to the label directions, Tempo Ultra WP dries and leaves a residual of active ingredient for pests to contact for 30 to 90 days. The active ingredient in Tempo Ultra WP is Cyfluthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid that attacks the central nervous system of target pests. Though Tempo Ultra WP is tough on insects, it is very gentle on people and pets when used correctly.

Tempo Ultra WP
By Rick on April 4, 2011
This is my second purchase of Tempo WP. I was paying $70.00 a month for a pesticide service to spray for bugs and I finally asked the guy; What do I get to do this myself because the stuff you buy from Lowe's or Home Depot is crap and it is not as strong as this stuff. One jar of Tempo WP has done great around one house that is 2400 sq ft and another at 2200 sq ft and inside and outside of a 2200 sq ft garage. All this I spray liberally and it has lasted me 1 year. Everything and I mean everything dies and is no match for this product. This product kills Black Widows, funnel spiders, wolf spiders, brown recluse spiders, all types of ants, centipedes, millipedes, earwigs, springtails, silverfish, just to name a few. Do not drench the area that you want to treat; just get it wet enough to where you can see a gloss from it. Do not spray around your family pets. Once this wettable powder is dry you are good to go. Once you spray thoroughly, within a day or two you are going to see so many dead bugs, you didn't know you had. I have saved sooo much money with this product and will not buy from any other site except www.domyownpestcontrol.com. They have extremely fast shipping, I live in CA and I had my product within 3 to 4 days. I highly recommend this for ALL your pesky bug needs.

Tempo Ultra WP
By Merlene on June 9, 2010
We recently purchased a house in the country and could not believe how many wasp and dirt dobbers and just bugs in general that lived in the country, so we asked a professional about what to use and he said this is the best. We have used it only 2 times to really get rid of the bugs on the patio and to keep the dirt dobbers from building their nest on the patios and this stuff is THE BEST. It really has worked and arrived in just a couple of days after ordering it, since then we have purchased other items from this same company. Wish I had found out about this place a long time ago.

This stuff works!
By David on January 14, 2011
This is a follow up after the season. I used Tempo Ultra extensively in August-October. There were hordes of Stinkbugs, then piles of dead stinkbugs. This stuff works! Last year we killed between 50 and 100 stinkers each day inside the house from mid October until April. No exaggeration. This year we have found 10-15 total so far. That is a huge difference. I have recommended this product to everyone who has asked, and everyone asks…I ought to get a commission. They are an enormous problem here, affecting everyone. Anything that kills large numbers at once attracts interest. I have also passed on your website as a good source.

By Angel on July 28, 2010
Well I am a first time buyer and they say Fast Shipping, they are not playing. I ordered on Friday, got it on Monday - wow talking about fast shipping. I use the Tempo Ultra WP, I follow the instructions, and I can be honest about this the roaches went crazy. This is better than any thing that you buy in Home Depot or any other store. If you are going to spend money on junk that does not work, better buy this product. Yeah, it costs more than a can of roach kill, but it works. Thanks!

Tempo Ultra WP I had bought & used this before Tempo Ultra WP and it still work great fighting box elder bugs! This container will last about eight years like the last container I bought. Yes I used the fast, free shipping and I had the Tempo Ultra in three days and that is fast! Andy from North West Indiana
By Andy on May 18, 2014
This is really good bug killer. Especially on fire ants and spiders!!! Soak a fire ant bed and soon you'll just have a pile of dead ants on top of the mound and they don't come back or just move over.
By Nuss on February 25, 2014
Can't vouch for how it works yet, destined for vacation home in Baja. DoMyOwnPestControl delivered quickly at best price, so no complaints.

Just what I needed
By J.r. on December 5, 2013
Great product. Tried every other product on the shelves at stores for Brown recluse issues, ants, and more. None of them hold a candle to the Tempo Ultra WP. Followed stated instructions and worked well! Applied solution with my sprayer, by next day started seeing insects dead around foundation. My Home was really bad with Brown recluse spiders. Thanks to this site I have a professional grade insecticide as the pros use at my disposal. Saved alot of money, and kept privacy to home not having to call pest control.
By Glenn on November 18, 2013
Great product. Easy to mix and remains in solution. Killed the brown recluse spiders in my barn.
By James on October 9, 2013
I live on a lake with a bad spider and ant problem. Tempo Ultra WP is the only thing I found that keeps the ants and spiders away for weeks. The down side is you can't spray inside because it leaves a milky looking residue.
Tempo Ultra WP
By Karen on September 20, 2013
I have used Tempo before. I ordered on line because I was unable to get it locally. All they had was the liquid Tempo. I prefer the powder. It takes such a small amount of powder to make a gallon. Before using Tempo, I tried many different brands of insect killers. Nothing can hold a candle to Tempo. It really works. I don't have to spray as often as the lesser sprays. It's a one stop product. Ordering it was a snap. The delivery was very prompt. I am very satisfied. Thank-You

April 15, 2012Amber from Rush, Ky asked:
QWhat is the difference between Tempo Ultra WP and Tempo SC Ultra?
I live in the country and need something for general bug control, but mainly for wasp.
ATempo SC Ultra is a concentrated water based liquid insecticide that will need to be mixed with water while the Tempo Ultra WP is a wettable powder that will need to be mixed with water. Both products contain the same active ingredient and will provide similar results. Tempo WP will do a better job on porous surfaces as it will stay on the surface and be more available to insects. Tempo Sc on the other hand will dry clear and will not leave behind the powdery residue that Tempo WP can.
August 13, 2009David asked:
QIs Tempo Ultra WP harmful to animals?
ATempo Ultra WP is not harmful to animals or pets as long as you follow the product label instructions. You should only apply this product to appropriate areas, and of course you would not want to apply it on childrens or pets toys. You should keep pets out of the room while you are applying the product, then wait 30 minutes for it to dry. Once the product is dry, it is perfectly safe to allow pets back into the room.
May 2, 2010Kenneth asked:
QHow do I mix Tempo Ultra WP correctly?
Tempo Ultra WP says to mix 3 scoops/3 gal water then says 2 scoops/ gal water which would be 6 scoops/3 gal water for a 0.025% solution . confusing table 1
ATo get a .025% solution of Tempo Ultra WP you need to mix 2 scoops of powder per gallon of water.
June 28, 2010Barb asked:
QDoes Tempo Ultra WP help control mosquitoes?
ATempo Ultra WP is labeled for mosquito control. The product label recommends spraying areas where mosquitoes may rest such as landscape plants, ground cover, beneath decks, around foundation and other areas where mosquitoes may rest.
July 20, 2010Sue asked:
QDoes Tempo WP have an expiration date?
ANo, most insecticides do not have an expiration date. We recommend that the Tempo WP be used within 3 years of the date of purchase.
June 22, 2010Ruth asked:
QCan I apply Tempo directly to garden plants where it will land on our produce?
May 16, 2011Lucy asked:
QWe have a flea infestation in our yard (2 acres). Will Tempo Ultra WP kill them?
ATempo Ultra WP is labeled for fleas and should do a great job eliminating this pest from your yard. You can find the directions for treating your yard for fleas on page 7 of the Tempo Ultra WP product label.
July 12, 2011Cody asked:
QI see you often recommend Cyper WP (Cypermethrin 40.0%) for spider problems. The reviews on Tempo Ultra WP (Cyfluthrin 10%) seem to be very good regarding spider and scorpion killing power. Can you explain the difference in the two active ingredients or the pros/cons of both?
ABoth Tempo WP and Cyper WP contain active ingredients that are synthetic pyrethroids. Tempo WP and Cyper WP are both excellent choices for scorpion and spider control and will provide very similar results. We often recommend Cyper WP over other WP products because our customers are not only looking for a quality product but they want it at the lowest price point possible.
May 12, 2011Max asked:
QDoes Tempo Ultra control Springtails?
We have a major springtail problem and nothing seems to be working. We have a monthly pest spray, but it is not working.
ATempo Ultra WP can help you control springtails but you will not get complete control until you locate the source of the springtails and correct the conditions that are allowing them to thrive. Please take a few minutes to read our article"How to Get Rid of Springtails" to learn more about springtail elimination.
January 10, 2013Kelley from Cedartown, Ga asked:
QDoes Tempo Ultra WP help control box elder bugs & lady bugs?
AYes, Tempo Ultra WP will control boxelder bugs and lady bugs that come into contact with treated areas.
September 21, 2013
QTempo 20 WP (Wettable Powder) ant spray used in kitchen. What are health risks?
What are the health risks to young children and pregnant women?
AWhen Tempo WP is used as directed on the product label (all children and non applicators out of the room during the application and until it has dried) and only applied in the areas that are outlined in the product label there really are not many risks associated with using the product.
July 13, 2014Akbar from Leaguecity Texas asked:
QTempo Ultra WP after you mix with water how long its last?
ATempo Ultra WP should be used within 24 hours of mixing. Conentrate in original bottle if stored in cool dry area will last 3 years.
