Tempo SC: One Of The Best Professional Insecticides On The Market!


When a serious bug problem emerges in a household, the first instinct of homeowners is to go to a big box store (like a Home Depot or Lowe’s), the pest control isle of their local grocery store or some other local department store to stock up on pest control insecticides.


Unfortunately, these pesticides may look like they will be effective because of the name brand on the label and the money you shelled out, but often they are watered down and produce disappointing results.


With Tempo SC, which you can purchase here on this website or our specialty Solutions stores across the country, you will be getting professional quality. That’s right, Tempo SC is regularly used by pest control professionals when conducting home and commercial treatments.


Created by Bayer, Tempo SC Ultra professional insecticide delivers a quick kill that is amongst the fastest-acting on the pest control market. This suspension concentrate provides the killing power of a pesticide power but in liquid form. In this liquid formulation, it makes for a convenient use with less mess and less hassle.


Tempo SC Ultra has the ability to control more than 100 different problem pests. Here is just some of its amazing features:

  • - Delivers an almost instant knockdown

  • - Long-time residual effect

  • - Reduced A.I. and low use rate

  • - Low toxicity


Tempo SC Ultra contains beta-cyfluthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid which mimics the killing effect of pyrethrum which naturally is extracted from the chrysanthemum plant. When insects ingest or come into contact with the beta-cyfluthrin in Tempo SC Ultra, it binds to their nerve cells. This causes over-stimulation of the nervous system and impairment of essential activities, such as feeding and motion, leading to death of the insect.


How to Apply Tempo SC Ultra Indoors

For indoor applications, we recommend utilizing a gallon hand sprayer mix 8 ml-16 ml of Tempo SC Ultra concentrate into one (1) gallon of water and apply as a spot, crack, crevice, and perimeter spray wherever the target insect has been discovered and where they have been found to nest, forage or harbor. These areas can be found out via a thorough pre-inspection.


How to Apply Tempo SC Ultra Outdoors:

For outdoor applications, we recommend utilizing a gallon hand sprayer mix 8 ml-16 ml of Tempo SC Ultra concentrate into one (1) gallon of water spray the mixed solution around the exterior perimeter of your home including door frames and window frames.


As a precaution, individuals like pets and children should remain indoors during treatment. All windows should be closed and doors leading outside should be shut. Also shut off ventilation systems that receive outside air. Wait until the material has dried before entering into the treated area. If it’s necessary to enter prior to material drying, wear gloves and clothes to protect the skin from direct contact with the leftover residues and to wash the skin and clothing if contact takes place.


Additional Tips When Using Tempo Ultra SC

  • - For the best results possible when applying treatment with Tempo Ultra SC, treat the soil, turf and substrate next to buildings.

  • - Treating the foundation of your home, walls, around doors, windows, and soffit areas is also useful because many insects hide in these areas.

Does Tempo SC Ultra require ventilation in every room? If no, are there any side effects to watch out for during/after performing the treatment? I have several rooms without ceiling fans, and one room with neither a fan or a window.
A shopper on Sep 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Tempo sc does not require any ventilation what so ever. It’s a long lasting residual product place around areas needing treatment, which are relatively close to the floor area. Windows do not need to be crack for any reason. It’s a nonstainable odorless chemical. Once applied to desired area or baseboard treatment allow to dry 1-4hours or completely dry. You don’t want to mop due to picking up treated application. residual inside interior has 90 day residual undisturb. I hope there’s some great advice in here for you. Best wishes!!

It really works!
We are in Mesa and use this for scorpions. Husband sprayed the outside perimeter of our home and the outside walls and doorways inside. The first time we used it, we found one scorpion that was dying in the hallway. It came out of its hiding place to get away from the spray. This stuff really works!

Temp SC
Tempo SC worked very well. I applied Tempo SC around the perimeter of the house and in the screened porch. The next day I went out on my porch and found many bugs resting on their backs with feet up. This is the first time I used Tempo SC and I am impressed with the results.

Effective for Scorpion Control in Central Texas
This product was recommended for scorpions by a building contractor near Seguin, Texas. Even though my house construction is new and very tight, a few scorpions could still find their way in. I mixed this product at the rate of 14 ml. per gallon of water and applied with a 1 gallon pump sprayer. The application was all around the exterior from the ground to about 2 feet above ground level. And interior on the floor, 1 foot around the floor baseboard including carpeted areas. I used two gallons of mixture total. During the treatment I found two live scorpions inside the house and captured them. I observed that they were impaired by the chemical right away but that it takes several days for them to die. Another one came out during the night and crawled across a ceramic tile floor. It appeared to move slowly and with impaired and abnormal movements.I left the house unoccupied for 1 week and when I returned I could not find any more scorpions (either dead ones or alive.) It also appears to have knocked down the cricket and deer fly population around the exterior.The product is odorless and appears to be effective for scorpions. I am still looking to see how long the product residual is effective. So far I have not seen any scorpions but it has only been 3 weeks.I've also used it in Houston for roaches and it is much more effective than anything I've ever gotten from retail sellers..

Very effective
I moved into a rental home that had an infestation of spiders, sliverfish, ants, and some things I couldn't even identify. I mixed up a batch and hit the garage and the foundation hard. One treatment has already made a very noticeable difference. This is exactly the kind of product I was looking for. I highly recommend this!

Simply the Best
This is the stuff the pros don't want you to know about. Effective indoors and outdoors. Residual kill without odor. Just mix, spray per the label, and witness great results.

Tempo Ultra SC is Great For Desert Pests
I have used Tempo Ultra SC in my home for years and absolutely love it for all my desert pest control needs both in and out side of my home. It works great and I don't know of a better product. As far as ePestSolutions.com - Wow! I cannot believe how quickly I received my product (less than 5 days). I have always been reluctant to order products online, but your price for Tempo was so much better than the price at local businesses, it was worth taking the risk and your ""A"" rating with the BBB helped ease my reluctancy. I am so impressed with your organization, I will not only order again, but will refer everyone I know. Thank you for setting the standards of how online businesses should operate.

Great Stuff!
I have tried everything to get rid of Box Elder bugs and nothing has worked until now. This stuff is fantastic! It killed the box elder bugs along with the ants we had around our house. Thanks for a great product!
