Skinny from Dfw, Texas writes,

Can I use Tempo SC Ultra in hamster or guinea pig cages?

I have problems with roaches getting into their food. I think the hamsters are eating them, but I usually find a couple roaches in the guinea pig cage. When I clean the guinea pig cage, can I spray it, let it dry, and then add clean hay/bedding?


Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled for use in animal cages. We recommend that instead of spraying the cages that you treat the areas surrounding the cages to kill the roaches before they enter the cages. You can also add an Insect Growth regulator such as Gentrol IGR to the Tempo SC Ultra to help break the infestation cycle. Keeping the cages and the areas around the cages very clean will also help to get rid of the roaches.
