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.

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.

The dual action works extremely well on pests like ants, making it one of the best ant control products on the market.

Temprid SC 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 25-50 gallons of finished solution using standard application dilution rates. Each 900mL bottles yields 56-112 gallons of finished solution.
Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios for Temprid SC:
*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.
Temprid SC is for 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.
Temprid SC for 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.

- 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 August 9, 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 April 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 June 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 April 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 June 4, 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 Star in yakima, wa on March 25, 2015
Product works great, not only did it take care of the bed bugs but it also took care of my ants as a nice side effect. Recommend this product for anyone who is having the problem. Have used it on my house and 2 other peoples houses that have had the problem over the last couple years, in all cases it (along with dusts and steaming treatments) worked well with no re infestations.
Finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!
By T in Salina, Kansas on March 25, 2015
This stuff is absolutely amazing. We unknowingly brought an infested couch and soon found we had bedbugs. We have been fighting over a year trying to get rid of these nasty, horrible creatures. I bought an expensive steamer, and many different sprays and dusts with very little to no success. I found temprid sc and decided to give it a try due to reviews. I am so glad I did! I mixed gentrol igr in with the temprid after thouroughly cleaning, washing/drying clothes and bedding, and vacuuming. It has been almost 2 weeks and im still finding dead bugs. I have only had 2 bites in the last 2 weeks compared to several overnight. I have a bad reaction to the bites and I am so thankful to be getting somewhere. You won't be disappointed as long as you clean, declutter, vacuum along with spraying this stuff. IT WORKS. I'm ordering more for follow up treatments to make sure these things are gone.

Did not work for me
By Danny in San Diego, Ca. on February 24, 2015
I use this spray to control bugs to the point of removal. When I sprayed the corners and areas where they hide, it did nothing, they took the spray like it was water. Do to its slow killing power, it's been a week the area that I sprayed still have some bugs. Not sure if this product can live up to it claim. But will give it more time to see.

Easy to use and is working where others failed!
By JF in WV on December 31, 2014
Had bedbugs for several months before finally spent the money on a 400mL bottle since it was only a little more expensive than the 240mL one. Immediately sprayed 3 bedrooms and the living room using about 20mL in a little more than a gallon of water. Slept so peacefully till one of the dumb bugs crawled across my forehead only to be squished on reflex. Sprayed a second time after 7 days in the same rooms, didn't see ANY live bugs in 2 of the rooms. I'll confess that the 3rd bedroom didn't get the greatest treatment I could have given it the first 2 treatments, but I hosed the bed this week and under the boxspring and frame like I should have done. No complaints from the mother-in-law since except an empty baby she killed the day after treatment.

Blood sucker bed bugs
By Marco in Clovis, California on November 30, 2014
With this product and others wear a good mask. I am very glad they sent it to me very quickly. You must act uppon them as soon as possible. Spray every hidden area and recheck it more than once. These people sent the product to me right away and it help me a great deal.
It WORKS !!!!
By Steve in Kansas City on November 26, 2014
Temprid SC Insecticide Works. We at the recommendation of the man at the pest control company we previously used recommended this to us even referring us to this website. The directions he provided made it easy enough for both my wife and I to be now capable to treat our own home. As you know bed bugs seem to be resistant to just about anything but definitely not this. Great Product.

I think the Florida Cockroaches are immune to this stuff. Sprayed as directed and noticed no change whatsoever.
By Larry in Springfield Mo. on November 19, 2014
I purchased this as it seemed to be a better fit for what I needed, to control a small bed bug problem, only a few so far, it claims quick kill and is residual for 60 to 90 days. I would also recommend you add Gentrol (insect birth control) into your sprayer for the best upper hand. I am getting to know to much about insect control but thanks to DoMyOwnPestControl at least I can get what I need and save money.
Temprid Sc Work
By Evette in Michigab on November 15, 2014
I started using Temprid after seeing bedbugs in one of my bedroom and in my 1 year old furniture. I put holes in the bottom of furniture so that I could spray the bottom good. I also spray the seats of the couch under the pillows. I put dri one powder down in the seams of the couch. I sprayed all crevices and corner along the walls of my whole house. I started seeing dead bugs under the couch in all the corners. I repeated this procedure every 10 days for 2 months. I haven't been bitten or seen any bugs. I am going to still spray every 3 weeks for a total of 6 months. I just wanna make sure I got all of them. This spray was a life saver for me.

April 1, 2011 Shawn asked:
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.
July 22, 2010 Tom asked:
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.
September 24, 2010 Gerard asked:
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.
October 31, 2009 Dave asked:
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.

June 25, 2011 Marie asked:
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.

Holly from Orange Texas asked:
QWhat IGR should I mix with Temprid for fleas?
What IGR works best with Temprid for fleas?
A Temprid SC is labeled for fleas, but it can only be used outside. If this is the treatment you're looking for, you can use Martins IGR along with it. We do recommend using the Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit which includes Onslaught Insecticide, which can be broadcasted onto carpeted areas, and Martins IGR.

Topurchase you do not need a license as long as the state you are in is not listed on the website as not for sale to with Temprid SC. It is not available in a 55 gallon drum. Temprid SC actually comes in our Bed Bug Kit Commercial and Commercial Roach Control Kit along with other products that are most recommended to treat for these pests. Temprid alone would not be enough to eliminate either completely.

Bob from Union, Nj asked:
QCan I use Bedlam Plus aerosol and Temprid liquid for baseboards at the same time?
I notice in your answers to others you mention you can use Bedlam Plus aerosol and Temprid liquid for baseboards, my question is should I use both on baseboards or just one? If just one, which is preferred?
A You would typically use the Temprid SC along the baseboards and use an aerosol like the Bedlam Plus along areas it would be more useful like the crevices of dresser drawers and cracks of shelving, and along the sides of the mattress seams or couch cushions. While you could use the Bedlam Plus along the baseboards areas since it is labeled for use in that space, the Temprid would be a much better option and more cost effective and less time consuming that trying to cover that large of a surface with a can. If you feel it necessary to use the Bedlam Plus along the baseboards at some point, you could always alternate your sprays every 7 days with Bedlam Plus and Temprid.

Cam from San Diego, Ca asked:
QWhat other products to use in restaurants and delis with German cockroach problem?
I am a California Branch 2 pest management company. We generally use ExcitR and Temprid-SC according to the label. Any other precautions or products you recommend?
Temprid SC and ExciteR are both labeled to be used in restaurants. ExciteR provides a quick kill and flush out of insects while Temprid SC will also provide a quick knockdown and a great residual. We recommend incorporating a roach bait such as Maxforce FC Magnum along with an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) like Gentrol IGR. Baiting and sanitation is key for any roach program. Gentrol IGR is the "birth control" for roaches. IGR's prevent the immature roaches from becoming adults therefore they are not able to reproduce. Mix 1oz Gentrol with 8ml of Temprid SC in a 1 gallon hand pump sprayer per 1,000 sq ft area.
Using Maxforce FC Magnum you get five times the active ingredient(Fipronil), plus a new technology called ContactX that kills roaches even when they just touch the bait. Other roaches touch or eat the dead roach and spread the bait again, controlling the entire colony, even the roaches you can't see.

Deldrick from Grand Forks, Nd asked:
QI am applying Temprid SC to a office building.
What areas should be covered? Do you apply to the outside of the building also?
A When spraying Temprid SC indoors, you will spray along the baseboards and cracks and crevices in all areas of the building. Temprid SC can also be sprayed outdoors around the perimeter of the structure. You will mix 8 mL per gallon of water in a pump sprayer. Temprid SC will last up to 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors.

Mildred from Phillipsburg, Nj asked:
QWhat will kill bat bugs (not bed bugs)?
My daughter had a couple bats get into her bedroom. Now she has an invasion of bat bugs. She has tried everything but nothing will kill them. Can you help?
A Bat bugs are treated very similar to bed bugs. Bats are their preferred host, but this does not negate them from humans. They do tend to come once the bats are gone because they are looking for a host. We would recommend using Temprid SC as a treatment for the rooms. You will mix 16 mL per gallon of water and treat in the room that has the bugs as well as all the surrounding rooms to prevent them from spreading. This will be applied with a pump sprayer. You will do this every 10-14 days until you do not see any activity for 30 days. We would also recommend using Cimexa Dust in the wall voids. You will do a couple of puffs per wall outlet and light plate with a hand duster. You will do this in all the wall voids of the home.
