Temprid SC Insecticide

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.

Active Ingredient: Imidacloprid - 21%
Beta-Cyfluthrin - 10.5%
Target pests: Ants, Bed Bugs, Beetles, Crickets, Fleas, Fruit Flies, Millipedes, Mosquitoes, Roaches, Silverfish, Spiders, Ticks, Wasps, Yellow Jackets, Stink Bugs, Kudzu Bugs and others

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.

Target Insects

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

Target Uses

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.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Imidacloprid 21%; Beta-Cyfluthrin 10.5%

Application Instructions

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.

    5 of 5 stars  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.

    5 of 5 stars  Murders Bed Bugs
    By Christie in virginia on 04/24/2012
    Verified Purchase

    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

    5 of 5 stars  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!!!

    2 of 5 stars  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.

    By Dan in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on 03/20/2016

    I bought the 3 pack for $18. Thank God I didn't spend $75 on the bottle. Useless for cockroaches. I also wasted a good bottle of Gentrol IGR by mixing it with this stuff. Maybe it works for bedbugs but it's useless for roaches. Try Permethrin.

    Temprid SC is supposed to have a slow kill. That is one of the really neat things about this product. It actually has the ability to spread from one roach to another through social interaction.

I was at my wits ends when doing research came across this product. I sprayed two 2gl sprayers full outside, not inside three days apart.

    5 of 5 stars  Suprised it worked.
    By Kay in Claremore, OK on 12/10/2015

    I researched everything and thought I was in for the fight of my life against these bed bugs. I am disabled and simply can't take all the precautions of empty the drawers, wash everything and wipe down stuff. I bought the three tubes of Temprid mixed it up and started spraying everything. Especially the bed, railings, headboards, night stands etc. I sprayed every three days and noticed fewer and fewer. I finally bought the Delta Dust and a puffer for the long term effect of any new hatchings. I used around the mattress and under the bed. Window sills and chairs in the living room. It took about a month, but I have not seen a single bug, nor have I had any bites on me. I am impressed with these two products and I am usually the one person that will find at least some fault with everything, but not this time. You have bed bugs you owe it to yourself to buy and start getting some relief from those critters.

    4 of 5 stars  Temprid seems to work
    By Matthew in Lakewood, Ohio on 10/07/2015

    I moved into a new apartment and quickly found we had bedbugs. I live in Ohio so there is a high chance of resistant bedbugs, which i found to be the case after trying Suspend SC which didn't kill them. I've done two treatments a week apart with Temprid SC and Gentrol IGR. I even had the pleasure of spraying the mix directly on a bed bug, to my joy the bug started to twitch and fell down a few times. Then stopped moving and never moved again. This treatment as well as climb up interceptors I haven't seen any new ones in the last week.

    1 of 5 stars  Did not work -- stay away
    By James in Lakeland, FL on 10/07/2015

    This product was advertised as being effective against bedbugs. After repeated applications, following all directions, bedbug infestation was worse than ever in a small, vacant rental home.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Dear James, We can understand your frustration here. The problem is that the home is vacant. Since the bedbugs will not expend energy and crawl around when there is no food source present, you likely see them get active upon re-entry. Since they don't start moving until a warm blooded mammal is present, they do not come into contact with those treated areas for a long time. It also looks like you have only been treating for a couple of weeks. Bedbug infestations typically take several weeks to several months to eliminate. Please take the time to read the How to Treat for Bedbugs to learn how to implement a successful bedbug control program. Temprid is indeed one of the top products on the market but there are several steps to bedbug control. Insecticides are only one step.

  • 5 of 5 stars  It's a miracle
    By Susan in Prescott, Arizona on 10/06/2015

    Our facility has been at war with bedbugs for 3 years now. After hiring many exterminators and breaking the bank with very little success, it appears we finally found the magic poison. We have sprayed 5 applications so far every 7 to 10 days and it appears to be working. We have not had to throw away any furniture during this time (we were throwing away couches and mattresses monthly because the exterminators said there was no way to get in them to kill the bugs). Watch out you exterminators that are getting rich off of people's fear of never getting rid of them. My life has become much less stressed since we started using this process. Can't wait to just start spraying every other month. :)

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.

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.

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.

I have used a combo of Bifen IT, Phantom, and Termidor around my place for the past 5 years, alternating etc. - I have noticed that my products do not seem to kill carpenter bees. - Is there a singular product that can successfully control all of the following: carpenter ants, roaches, carpenter bees, termites, springtails, etc.


Temprid SC is labeled for a wide variety of insects, that includes Carpenter Ants and Carpenter Bees. We recommend to follow the label instructions. We also recommend using baits for Carpenter Ants, such as our Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit, and a dust like Delta Dust to treat into each Carpenter Bee hole. We recommend to go over each treatment article for Carpenter Ants and Carpenter Bees for further information. Another product worth looking into is Demon WP.

QIs Temprid SC good to use for flies with the beta-cyfluthrin in it?


Temprid SC Insecticide does have two powerful active ingredients that work very well on the dozens of pests list on the product label. Residual insecticides, however, should not be the sole treatment for flying insects since it often difficult to apply the insecticide in areas where the flies will come into contact with it. We do have excellent Pest Guides on several different types of flies, and we would be happy to offer additional advice with information about what specific kind of fly you are treating and in what area (inside, outside, residential, commercial, etc.).

QCan you use Temprid SC with a steam cleaner, or would you spray it?


Temprid SC Insecticide is a concentrated procuct that you mix with water and apply with a pump sprayer following the rates listed on the product label.  We have a great video that shows where to spray for perimeter and interior spraying. Please click here to see the video. Steaming is commonly used as a first defense for insect pests since it will kill any life stages on contact. It is best to perform this treatment before applying insecticides so that the steam does not reduce the residual of your insecticide.

QIf Temprid SC was sprayed during a rain break, could it hurt my animals?
The rain had stopped, the chemical was applied and it rained about an hour later. Now I have a dead chicken and a dog seeming to have an allergic reaction to something.


It is recommended that you keep pets out of the area when Temprid SC is wet. Once it is dry, it is rainfast and does not reactivate when it gets wet. If the product did not have time to dry before it rained, the effectiveness will decrease. 

With regards to the animals, we would recommend contacting your vet and/or poison control if they are displaying unusual symptoms.

QHow long will Temprid SC work on bed bugs?
I bought and applied some a few days ago. I saw where one can spray after about 10 days. I would like to know how long the product works after application.


When you are spraying Temprid SC for bed bugs, it is recommended that you spray every 7-10 days until you do not see activity for 30 days. How long the product takes to work depends on how severe the problem is to begin with, your other treatment methods, and how thorough treatments are. Temprid SC does offer a long residual, however it is important to perform follow-up treatments at close intervals to kill newly hatched bed bugs that may be present in the area. Please see our Bed Bug Treatment article for more information.

QCan I use Temprid SC at the same time with Advion gel baits?
I'm treating a unit with Temprid SC for cock roaches and bed bugs...the bed bug issue is resolved but the cock roach issue is on going...wanting to add baits in addition to the Temprid SC...the cockroach population has been diminished greatly but wanted to add additional treatment...how do i use both...any helpful tips...please thank you


Yes, Advion Roach Bait Gel can be used at the same time as Temprid SC. Make sure you put the bait in areas where you cannot spray, such as inside cabinets, drawers, etc. Do not spray the bait because this will contaminate it and the roaches will not consume it.

It is also recommended that you mix the Temprid SC with an insect growth regulator, such as Gentrol IGR. This will stop the life cycle of the roaches. This lasts approximately three months. Please see our Roach Treatment Guide for more information.

QIs Suspend SC or Temprid SC better for spider control?


Suspend SC and Temprid SC are both labeled to eradicate spiders and their food source. We do offer Temprid SC in our Spider Control Kit. You would make an indoor crack and crevice application once every 90 days and an outdoor application once a month. Please take a few moments to review our Spider Control Article for more helpful tips on eradication and prevention.

QIs it safe to use Temprid SC Insecticide with pets around?
Our dog will eat bugs that she finds in the garage or on the porch. If insects are treated with Temprid SC, will it hurt her?


Yes, Temprid SC Insecticide is labeled to be applied in and around a home that has pets. Keep them out of the area during the application and they can return when the treated areas are completely dry. Your pet would need to ingest tons and tons of treated insects to have an effect on her.
