Temprid SC (suspension concentrate) insecticide offers a unique dual mode of action by combining two powerful and effective residual insecticides: beta-cyfluthrin and imidacloprid. The result is Temprid, which provides quick knockdown and long residual control of more than 50 pests, including ants, spiders, cockroaches and other key perimeter pests. The dual action works extremely well on pests like ants, making it one of the best ant control products on the market. While Temprid SC is labeled for indoor and outdoor use, we recommend spraying outside and around the foundation of the home -- spray about 3 ft. up the side of the house, and about 3-5 ft. out from the structure from the base of the foundation (spraying directly on the ground) -- this will give you a powerful contiguous barrier against pests.
The popular and powerful Temprid SC is now available in a convenient 8 mL dose for smaller applications or for one-time treatments. No separate measuring device is required, just use one 8mL dose per gallon of water for most applications, or use 2 x 8mL doses per gallon of water for clean-out or heavy infestations.
The 900 mL bottle comes with a tip and measure feature.

How Temprid SC Works
Temprid SC Insecticide is a suspension concentrate formulation of two insecticide active ingredients, imidacloprid and beta-cyfluthrin. These two active ingredients affect targets pests differently, offering complete and unique control for the toughest pests, even when resistance is a concern. Imidacloprid is a patented neonicotinoid manufactured by Bayer Cropscience. Neonicotinoids refer to the class neuro-active insecticides that are modeled after nicotine. Imidacloprid works by disrupting inhibiting stimuli transmission within the nervous system of a given insect when that insect either ingests or absorbs the poison into its body. More specifically, imidacloprid blocks a certain type of neuronal pathways which are much more prevalent in insects than mammals. That is why the chemical is much more toxic to insects than humans or animals. Because of its slower kill time, imidacloprid is used when a transfer effect is desired for treatment of social insects such as ants and cockroaches.
Beta-cyfluthrin is a synthetic pyrethroid that attacks the central nervous system of target pests. Made to mimic the effects on insects of naturally occurring pyrethrum, man-made beta-cyfluthrin has the advantage of remaining effective far longer than pyrethrins. In Temprid SC, beta-cyfluthrin provides a quick knockdown for immediate control, while the imidacloprid provides long-lasting results and far-reaching control through a transfer effect. Temprid SC is a liquid concentrate made to be diluted with water and is best applied with a hand pump sprayer like the Chapin Premier 1 gallon sprayer.
Ants, bed bugs, beetles, crickets, fleas, millipedes, mosquitoes, roaches, silverfish, spiders, ticks, wasps, yellow jackets, stink bugs, kudzu bugs, wood-infesting pests, and many other common pests
INSECTS CONTROLLED: Ants, Bed bugs, Beetles (including Lyctid or powder post, Anobiid or deathwatch, False powderpost, Old house borers, Wharf borers, Ambrosia beetles, Bark beetles), Blue or Green Bottle flies, Boxelder bugs, Carpenter ants, Carpenter bees, Carpet beetles, Centipedes, Clothes moths, Clover mites, Cluster fly, Cockroaches, Crickets, Darkling beetles, Dermestids, Drywood termites, Earwigs, Elm leaf beetles, Fire ants, Firebrats, Fleas, Flesh flies, Flies, Fruit flies, Gnats, Ground beetles, Hide beetles, Hornets, House flies, Leather beetles, Midges, Millipedes, Mosquitoes, Moths, Multicolored Asian lady beetles, Phorid flies, Pill bugs, Sciarid flies (fungus gnats), Scorpions, Silverfish, Sow bugs, Spiders, Springtails, Stable flies, Ticks, Wasps, Yellow jackets
Temprid SC provides quick knockdown and long residual control of more than 50 pests, including ants, spiders, cockroaches and other key perimeter pests. The dual action works extremely well on pests like ants, making it one of the best ant control products on the market. While Temprid SC is labeled for indoor and outdoor use, we recommend spraying outside and around the foundation of the home -- spray about 3 ft. up the side of the house, and about 3-5 ft. out from the structure from the base of the foundation (spraying directly on the ground) -- this will give you a powerful contiguous barrier against pests.
Temprid SC is also a powerful option for bed bug control in residential and commercial properties, even when resistance is a concern. Temprid SC is also labeled for many challenging ornamental pests and has low phytotoxicity on a variety of ornamental plants.
How to Use Temprid SC (Video):
Temprid SC can be used indoors as a spot treatment or as a void injection by mist, foam, or crack and crevice spray, and outdoors as a perimeter treatment, general surface spray, or foliar application to established landscape ornamentals. Always read the product label completely before use.
Mixing Instructions - Shake concentrate before using. Mix the appropriate amount of Temprid SC Insecticide with water. Add product when filling spray tank with water; shake or agitate mixture. Diluted spray mixture can be stored overnight. Agitate before using.
* Re-apply every 7 to 10 days, if needed.
Each 400mL bottle yields 25 to 50 gallons of finished solution using standard application dilution rates. Each 900mL bottles yields 56 to 112 gallons of finished solution.
Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios:
- 0.27 fl. oz. (8 mL)/gal. of water – 0.075% total a.i. – maintenance or preventative treatments
- 0.54 fl. oz. (16 mL)/gal. of water – 0.15% total a.i. – severe infestations, faster knockdown, or longer residual needs
- One gallon of finished solution covers approximately 1,000 square feet. For high volume applications for outdoor treatments, dilute at lower concentrations and apply in greater volumes of water.
Use in the Following Areas:
In and around buildings and structures; On established landscape ornamentals around residential and commercial properties; buildings, structures, and modes of transport including: apartment buildings, bakeries, bottling facilities, breweries, buses, cafeterias, candy plants, cereal processing and manufacturing plants, correctional facilities, dairies and dairy product processing plants, factories, frozen food plants, grain mills, granaries, greenhouses (structures only), hospitals, hotels, houses, industrial buildings, kitchens, laboratories, livestock housing, pet kennels, manufacturing establishments, mausoleums, meat and produce canneries, nursing homes, pickle factories, poultry houses, processing and packing plants, restaurants, schools, spice plants, stores, warehouses, wineries and similar structures; food processing facilities (non food/feed areas), transportation vessels such as buses, trucks, trailers, rail cars, and marine vessels.
Use 8-16 mL per gallon of water in a low-pressure system such as a hand pump sprayer. Treat where pests have been seen or found, or can find shelter. Use only as a spot spray, crack and crevice or void treatment. Treat entry points such as around water pipes, doors, windows, and eaves. Treat around where pests normally feed or hide such as baseboards, corners, around water pipes, behind or under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, and stoves.
Bed Bug Control:
- Use at a rate of 0.27 fl oz (8 milliliters) of Temprid SC per gallon of water.
- Controls bed bug populations that are resistant to pyrethroid insecticides. Spray bugs directly wherever possible following site directions below:
- For infested mattresses, remove linens and wash before reuse. Apply to tufts, seams, folds, and edges until moist. Allow to dry before remaking bed.
- Apply to bedsprings, box springs, and the interior of bed frames or headboards, including all cracks and joints.
- When bed bugs are found in upholstered furniture, apply only to the infested tufts, seams, folds and edges, but do not apply to flat surfaces where prolonged human contact will occur. If bugs heavily infest furniture (inside cushions and/or batting) apply a labeled insecticide dust.
- Apply as a crack and crevice treatment to all baseboards, moldings, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture and picture frames that may provide harborage to bed bugs.
- Temprid SC is not repellent to bed bugs, can withstand up to 8 hours of bed bug heat treatments (140 F), and prevents bed bug infestations for up to 6 months.
* Do not apply as a broadcast treatment to floors or floor coverings or as a space spray.
Use 8-16 mL per gallon of water; always use the higher dilution rate for fire ants, hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets. Apply to surfaces on buildings, porches, patios and other structures, around doors and windows, eaves and attic vents, utility entry points, soffit areas and other exterior openings where outdoor/perimeter pests enter the structure or where they have been seen or found, or can find shelter. To prevent infestation, treat the outside of the structure to include walls to a height of 2 to 3 feet and treat the soil, turf, or other ground covering adjacent to the structure in a band up to 10 feet wide.
Ants – Locate and treat ant nests, if possible. Follow trails of foraging workers, check under objects near the structure, and inspect other likely nest sites. If ants are nesting in the soil, thoroughly drench or inject the nest and surrounding soil. Treat ant trails around windows and doors, along sidewalks, or other areas where seen. Apply a perimeter treatment as described above. Temprid SC contains a systemic insecticide (imidacloprid), so foliar application to landscape ornamentals provides locally systemic control of aphids, scale insects, and other plant-sucking insects and limit the production of honeydew (an important food source for ant populations). Apply a very light mist of the dilute spray, and do not allow excess run-off. Treat thoroughly for good coverage including the underside of leaves as these pests often feed or rest there.
Wood-Infesting Pests – Dilute at a rate of 0.27 oz. (8 mL) per gallon of water. Apply as a spray or foam to galleries, structure voids, or soil or wood surfaces where target pests may be found. Treatment dilutions may also be applied to wood surfaces by paint brush or rollers. Do not apply directly to firewood. See product label for complete instructions.
- Two modes of action for optimal control of target pests.
- Low odor and non-staining formulation.
- Low phytotoxicity on a wide range of ornamental plants.
- Delivers unsurpassed ant control, and also eliminates aphids, scale and mealy bugs.
- Can be applied indoors and outdoors (please refer to label for special precautions regarding indoor use).
- Can be applied outdoors as a perimeter spray 3 ft. up and 10 ft out from the structure.
- Labeled to control some perimeter pests that other products don’t.
- Controls pests fast.
- Combines fast-acting beta-cyfluthrin with the systemic residual control of Imidacloprid to provide premium performance.
- Low dilution rate means more finished solution from each bottle.
Extra Tips for Using
- Shake well before using. Product may separate if stored for long periods of time, but this will not diminish its efficacy.
- Do not contact treated surfaces until dry. People and pets may re-enter after the treated area is dry.
- Store concentrate out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures for maximum shelf life.
- Use in conjunction with other formulations and products, such as insecticide dusts and aerosols, for optimum bed bug control.

Temprid is the ONLY choice for Bed Bugs
By Rick in phoenix on 08/09/2011
I used Suspend for Weeks on my bed bug problem. It helped and killed some but wasn't really doing the job I needed. I tested the suspend directly on some of my bugs and realized it was very slow to act or even if directly prayed still did not work at all. After consulting with the Bayer Rep I bought the Temprid and all I can say was WOW this stuff killed the bedbugs residually and immediately Overnight it was like my problem was gone and I still find one or two dead under the bed every few days as they try to make their way out for a meal. I think they are all gone now and all I can say is Temprid all the way.

Murders Bed Bugs
By Christie in virginia on 04/24/2012
Bottom Line - FAST SHIPPING and PRODUCT WORKS We had an infestation in one bedroom and a few in the bedroom next to it. My wife was devastated and took the whole episode pretty hard. We had taken my son to the doctor three times for a "rash" and was told it was eczema. She had to tell people at church and friends to make sure they had not spread to friends. My office at work shut down my office for two days to exterminate after I told them about it. I had to take about a week off to get all this done. This is the steps we took to get rid of the bugs. 1.Threw out the mattress, box spring and headboard/foot board in the most infested room (sons). 2.took all clothing out of the infected rooms and washed in the hottest water out water heater could produce. 3. Sprayed a gallon of sterifab between the two rooms on everything. Walls, carpet, cracks, furniture....everything. 4. Put 3 pounds of FOOD GRADE Diatomaceous earth powder on the carpet throughout the house. We left this down for 3 days because we had to wait for the carpet cleaners to have an opening. I found a live bug on a mattress and put it on the dusted carpet and it was dead in an hour. I can't say it wasn't some other step that helped to kill it but it was cheap and animal friendly and I had the time. BTW I got it from a local pet store for 15.00. I also took off outlet covers and dusted in there. I feel like this helped keep them from spreading from the most infested rooms because the rooms were not really livable for a few days and I didn't want the bugs to spread seeking out a meal. I'm just an armchair exterminator so who knows...but it did make us feel better even if it was a bit messy. I did find it dried out your skin and airway but is pet safe. 5. We had all the carpet steam cleaned and the mattress in the lesser infected room. 6.Ordered temprid from here and had it sent two day air. At this point we had moved back into the lesser infected room and had an air mattress in the most infected room. I slept in the most infected room and my wife and son slept in the lesser. I didn't seem to have any bites but my wife and son did have a few. 7. My order arrived on time with easy tracking and the instructions were easy to follow. I mixed up the insecticide per the instructions and sprayed down the two rooms including the remaining box spring, mattress sides and bottom, carpet that wasn't in constant contact with people, and all cracks. We moved back to our normal sleeping arrangement. Mom and dad in lesser and son on air mat in the more infected room. Wife had a few bites, son had none and I found one large bug on me when I woke up in the night. We would search our bed every morning and found a couple dead bugs in the metal frame railing. After the first week of temprid my wife still had a couple bites but no one else. I reapplied temprid as before after 7 days. During the second week we found maybe two dead bugs on the mattress/frame but no bites. I reapplied temprid one more time after 7 days. WE purchased a new mattress/box spring for my sons room and encased it with covers....just in case. After four weeks no bites and no dead bugs found thanks to hard work, Temprid, and DoMyOwnPestControl.com Bottom Line - FAST SHIPPING and PRODUCT WORKS

Bed Bug Nightmare
By Deneene in Baltimore on 06/14/2011
I had bed bugs in my home that were resistant to the Suspend SC product. I did some research and found the Temprid SC is the product to use for resistant bed bugs. I used this product along with the Gentrol and Diatomaceous earth dust and it worked great. I have not seen anymore bugs. I am a very pleased and happy customer!!!

This products sucks on roaches
By Rey in kissimmee fl on 04/17/2010
Treated various homes for German roaches. Followed up a week later and the roaches were walking over it like nothing was there. Also please note this product is not tank mixable with other products so you would have to use a new or chemically neutralized tank for it to be effective. Also it is not labeled for use with insect growth regulators. Also tested product on variety of ants, it is effective against household ants. I would still go with Termidor outside once you find the trail and Phantom on the inside. Especially for roaches, Phantom is your best option. Also phantom can be mixed with insect growth regulators, which will maximize effectiveness.

Temprid Insecticide Control
By Gregory in Lancaster, PA on 06/04/2009
We have been using Temprid SC for one month now, and have not had any call-backs with the technicians who are using it. I am truly amazed, since we use it on Odorous House Ants which are extremely difficult.

By Nic in MI on 07/10/2013
We have only used one treatment so far, but the night we used it I saw one bedbug right afterwards. Since then we have not seen one. For weeks I could not sleep or relax in my home. Since we used temprid sc none of my family has been bitten at night. Not only have we not seen any bedbugs, we haven't seen ANY bugs. I am so happy my husband found this site and ordered this. Orkin was going to charge us $800! We used the temprid, sprayed with phantom and came out $600 cheaper! Thank you for selling this, and making it so that I was again able to sleep in my bed and nap on my couch without waking every 30 minutes to make sure no disgusting bedbugs were crawling on me or my children!

best bed bug killer
By South in Austin texas on 05/25/2013
After trying multiple products that claimed they killed bed bug and suffering through the failure, I ordered temprid SC. We treated our home very thorghly once every 7 days for 3 weeks straight. We have had amazing results! We have been bite free since the first treatment. It is extremely important to continue treating for at least 3 weeks to kill the bed begs life cycle even if your not receiving bites. My family is in day 22 bed bug free. This may seem like a short time to write about but this product was the only thing that had worked! I must mention we also used DE to help kill the life stages. Temprid SC also has made our home bug free. No more silver fish, spiders, ants, wasps and no more bed bugs!!

By Roger in NH on 10/23/2012
I Recently bought a house. While shampoing the carpets my son came up to me asking what are all these bugs on his pants. FLEAS!!! So we went straight out and bought Enforcer brand flea foggers enough for a bottle for every room. Two days later they seemed un phased. I picked up a bottle of 10% permethrin at the local barn store, mixed with water per directions. Sprayed inside and outside the whole house. Week later still everywhere, so we bought some hot shot flea fogger. This seemed promising due to the next day seemed much better. Few days later the infestation was still going strong they were just as bad on the wood floors as they were in the carpets. Lucky we have a month until we need to be moved in. So we did the lamp above soapy water dishes to find out what we were dealing with. We had 4 soapy water filled fisbys under a night light. 4 days in a row we had at least 300 fleas in each one. So during this whole time we had a system of loading stuff, furniture etc, into the garage, and vaccuming every floor every day. We put down 6 pounds of D earth let sit for 48 hours, what a mess cleaning that all up and destroyed our vaccum. Still fleas everywhere, we even tried the whole heat the house at 90 deg for a few days two weeks into the problem, well that seemed to stem a major hatching cause they were everywhere!!! I was at wits end and felt a desperate sunk feeling every time I had to go to the house to drop off stuff we have packed, not knowing what we would walk into. Finally I was talking to a co worker that said he had a bad bed bug problem and he used Temprid SC and worked well. He let me borrow the bottle, which had the domyownpestcontrol lable on it. I used it at the highest recommended mixture. Sprayed the whole house even the basement, garage. First day after treatment about 60 fleas in each frisby, second day 20 fleas, 3rd around 12, 4th day 2!!! So far the soapy water lamp trick, and Temprid SC is the only thing that has knocked em down. I plan to do another treatment 7 days after the 1st just to make sure I got them all. I was getting really worried I would be living out of a camper in the driveway until I got the house under control. But it looks like we will move in on time.

By Andrew on 09/11/2012
We had a bed bug infestation that was very unpleasant we had a professional come out and he did the three treatments and they were still coming out of nowhere my wife was getting bit on and off and then my daughter also I never was bit by anything so I did a lot of research and found that this was one of the best products to use. So I ordered it and sprayed the house myself with the maximum to spray and did that for about three treatments before I decided to put up a review needless to say the bugs are gone and have not seen them yet and I plan on continuing to spray about every month just to make sure they are gone. Great product recommend to anyone who has a bed bug infestation.

By Paul in Louisville, KY on 08/08/2012
I have tried for literally years to eradicate a bed bug problem in my home. I have used a variety of products but none of them have worked completely, except this one. It is odorless, does not stain, and is safe for use on furniture and mattresses. I treated the baseboards, carpets, and furniture in my entire home every 7 days for three weeks. By the end of the third week, the bed bugs are completely gone!! I have also used it to get rid of mosquitoes in my backyard. This is the best bed bug product on the market! It is safe and works great.

I previously tried Suspend SC and they seemed resistant because we kept seeing them. I read up on it and tried Temprid SC. This stuff WORKS. We have cats and a dog so I was cautious about trying just anything. After cleaning thoroughly and treating fabrics with SteriFab, I treated the room crevices and the box springs with Temprid. We saw two more bugs in the next two weeks, and I treated again. It has now been more than a month with no bites and no sightings. I plan to clean and treat once more and I think the problem is gone.

Temprid for bedbugs
By Michele in Palm Springs, CA on 10/11/2011
We had a mild bedbug problem compounded by a big move. I didn't want to bring them along to the new house so I bought Temprid and sprayed. No bites for 6 days. Sprayed again on day 7, as per instructions. All good...no bites. Moved on day 13...waiting to see if I need to spray in new place. Glad there is a reliable tool for this stressful fight. No odor, no stains, no problem with my kitty.

It has only been the second application but we have not been bit so that is a plus, we only had a minor infestation and had an exterminator come in and they used this stuff 2 times but they did it a month apart ( the bottle states 7-10 to do it). After 2 months we started to get bit again hence the purchase, much cheaper to do it yourself. It is a lot of work but hopefully soon I feel comfy going to bed, will review again after 6 months.

Have a question about this product?
Ask our product experts...
Ask a Question
QHow long does Temprid SC stay active as a residual?
ATemprid SC will stay active for up to 90 days indoors and for about 30 days outdoors.
QHow many gallons of spray will a 400 ML bottle of Temprid SC make?
ATemprid SC can be mixed at a lower concentration of 8 ml per gallon of water and a higher concentration of 16 ml per gallon of water. There is a total of 400 ml in a bottle. So at a lower concentration of 8 ml per gallon of water, Temprid SC will make 50 gallons of finished solution. If you mixed all gallons at the higher concentration of 16 ml per gallon of water, you would get 25 gallons of finished solution.
QIs Temprid SC a repellent or non-repellent like Phantom and Termidor SC?
ATemprid SC has beta-cyfluthrin in it which is not a non-repellent product. It is a repellent insecticide. However, repellent these days does not mean the insect can sense that it is there and avoids the area. The insect actually walks over the barrier and gets the insecticide on its tiny microscopic hairs on its body and eventually dies.
QIs Temprid SC labeled for bedbugs?
A Yes, Temprid SC is labeled for Bed Bug control. Please see the supplemental label link under the product picture on the Temprid SC page on our website for more information. Temprid SC can be applied to the tufts, folds and seams of mattresses, boxsprings and upholstered furniture. It can also be applied as a crack and crevice treatment to all baseboards, moldings, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture and picture frames that may provide harborage areas for bed bugs.

It can also be applied as a crack and crevice treatment to all baseboards, moldings, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture and picture frames that may provide harborage areas for bed bugs.
QI read that Temprid SC can make 50 gallons. Is there a smaller bottle available?
50 gallons is an awful lot for people who are just treating their own home. This is probably why Temprid costs so much more than other insecticides. Do the makers of Temprid plan to market a smaller amount, or make an aerosol that would be useful to people who would never use up what is in the bottle they currently sell?
ATemprid SC is available in a 240ml bottle. It is also available in a Ready Spray can that is great for homeowners. For a professional that may treat 10 homes in one day, this bottle does not last very long. You can mix 8 ml per gallon of water or 16 ml per gallon of water for most insect problems. The product has a shelf life of at least 5 years as long as you keep the lid on and keep it out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.
06/27/2015 Paul from Sutherlin, Oregon
QCan I apply Temprid SC without wearing a mask?
I noticed that most pro companies spray around houses without any lung protection. Especially when spraying up towards the gutters and soffit. Can I spray this Temprid SC without using a mask?
QHow long do you need to stay away from room after spraying Temprid SC?
Can you spray Temprid directly to your bed and furniture?
AAfter applying Temprid SC, you should allow the treated spaces to dry first prior to allowing any children, pets or other adults in those areas. It can be applied to the tufts, folds and seams of mattresses, boxsprings and upholstered furniture. It can also be applied as a crack and crevice treatment to all baseboards, moldings, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture and picture frames that may provide harborage areas for the listed insects.
05/09/2014 Holly from Cape Coral, Fl
QWhat products would be best for all-around outdoor/indoor treatments that are safe around dogs?
I have ants (little black ones), palmetto roaches (big ones), and spiders. I also have 2 dogs that get into everything!
ATemprid SC would work great for all different types of pest. It dries clear, is odorless and safe for people and pets after the treated area has dried.
06/25/2013 Kim from New Oxford , Pa.
QHow long does it take for bed bugs to die once it crosses the Temprid SC residual?
AHow long it takes the bed bugs to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the bed bug as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die.
05/30/2013 Sue from Ohio
QWhat is the best residual product to use for bedbugs. I am looking for a long lasting spray.
Need to treat for bebugs and have tried a few products and they are not getting rid of the problem. We have washed in hot water, trued bedlum plus, DE dust, and encased all beds. I need a spray that can be sprayed on carpets, sofas, in my vehical. With a long lasting residual. I need a quick knock down product with and one that keeps working when dry. Looking for a concentrate that goes into gallon sprayer.
A Temprid would be a great choice for you. For infested mattresses, remove linens and wash before reuse. Apply to tufts, seams, folds, and edges until moist. Allow to dry before remaking bed. Temprid prevents bed bug infestations for up to 6 months. Please make sure to follow the product label closely.
Apply to bedsprings, box springs, and the interior of bed frames or headboards, including all cracks and joints.
When bed bugs are found in upholstered furniture, apply only to the infested tufts, seams, folds and edges, but do not apply to flat surfaces where prolonged human contact will occur. If bugs heavily infest furniture (inside cushions and/or batting) apply a labeled insecticide dust.
Apply as a crack and crevice treatment to all baseboards, moldings, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture and picture frames that may provide harborage to bed bugs.

QI have mixed Temprid with a gallon of water and still have some left over...how long can it be stored?
How long can I store my Temprid and water mixture? I have mixed 8mm into a gallon of water and didn't use all of it and was wondering if I can store it for a week or a month like this?
AYou should not store diluted Temprid (or most other diluted insecticides for that matter) for more than 24 hours because the acids in the water will start to degrade the product making it ineffective. Leftover dilution can be disposed of by pouring it out right up against the foundation of your structure outside.
12/28/2011 Chris from Wadsworth Ohio
QWhat is the shelf life and recommended storage method for Temprid SC?
ATemprid SC will last for at least three years when stored in the original container (tightly sealed of course), out of direct sunlight and out of extreme temperatures.
QWhat's the difference between water based and oil based insecticide?
AWater based insecticides are the most commonly used insecticides today because they have low or no odor and they usually do not stain. Oil based insecticides are used in cases where the product may need to stay wetter for a longer period of time and they are usually used outdoors to avoid odor issues and staining. Oil based insecticides usually need to be diluted with oil or you must use an additive such as adjuvant to dilute the product in water (always read the product label for proper mixing instructions).
QCan Talstar P and Temprid SC be mixed together and be safely sprayed indoor and outdoors?
AThere is no valid reason to mix Temprid SC and Talstar P together. Talstar P is a synthetic pyrethroid and Temprid SC already contains a synthetic pyrethroid, so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation.
QCan I mix Temprid SC with Gentrol and Demand CS?
ATemprid SC can be mixed with Gentrol IGR for control of many insects. We would not recommend mixing Temprid with Demand CS. Since they both have synthetic pyrethroids as active ingredients, it would most likely not improve efficacy. Temprid SC would be a great choice if you would like to use dual active ingredients as it contains two active ingredients, Imidacloprid 21% and Beta-Cyfluthrin 10.5%.
