Tempo® SC Ultra Pest Control Concentrate is intended to be mixed with water and applied with pump style sprayer or trigger spray bottle. Add the appropriate amount of product while filling the sprayer with water, and shake to mix. Use 1 Tablespoon (16 milliliters) of Tempo® SC Ultra Pest Control Concentrate per 1,000 ft2 in 1 gallon of water to adequately cover the area being treated, but which will not allow dripping or run off to occur. Diluted spray mixture can be stored overnight and applied the following day; however, mixture should be shaken prior to use to thoroughly mix the product.
Tempo® SC Ultra Pest Control Concentrate will not stain or damage painted or varnished surfaces, plastics, fabrics or other surfaces where water applied alone causes no damage.
Indoor Pest Control:
For use in animal housing, including, livestock barns, horse stables, and other animal quarters to control crawling and flying insect pests. Apply diluted spray as a general surface and/or a crack and crevice spray. Control will be enhanced when facilities are cleaned and interior applications are supplemented with exterior perimeter treatments. Do not make interior applications of Tempo® SC Ultra Pest Control Concentrate in areas of facility where animals are present. Do not make applications to animal feedstuffs or watering equipment.
General Surface Applications:
For general pests, occasional invaders, and flying insects apply the diluted spray evenly to walls, floors, between, behind and beneath equipment, appliances, around floor drains, window and door frames, and on the underside of shelves, drawers and in similar areas. Applications may be made to floor surfaces along walls and around air ducts; however do not treat the entire area or floor or floor coverings. Pay particular attention to treating entry points and harborage areas. Do not apply where electrical short circuits could occur. Use a dust or dry bait in these areas. It is recommended to wear safety glasses, goggles or face shield and a respirator when making a general surface treatment to overhead areas. For control of flying insects, make application to surfaces or directly where the pest collects or rests. Do not apply as a fog.
Spot, Crack Or Crevice Applications:
Use low spray pressure and pin-point application in specific areas such as: cracks and crevices in or behind baseboards, in floors, walls, expansion joints, areas around water and sewer pipes, wall voids, or voids in table legs and equipment where pests can hide, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, behind and under cabinets, sinks, and other equipment, the underside of shelves, drawers, as well as other similar areas. Do not apply where electrical short circuits could occur. Use a dust or dry bait in these areas.
Outdoor Pest Control
For Control Of Flying Insects Outdoors:
Make applications to outside surfaces of barns, horse stables, animal confinement areas, animal quarters, buildings, feedlots, animal holding areas, storage areas, workshops, and other areas where these pests have been seen or found. Make pin stream applications directly to the nests of wasps, yellow-jackets and hornets. For perimeter pest control, make a general surface application to outside surfaces of barns, horse stables, animal confinement areas, animal quarters, buildings, feedlots, animal holding areas, storage areas, workshops, and other areas where pests have been seen or found. To help prevent infestations of buildings by occasional invaders, treat soil, mulch, turf or other substrates adjacent to buildings, the building foundation, walls, around doors and windows, soffit areas where these pests are active and may find entrance. For control of the imported red fire ant, around the sites listed above, mix Tempo® SC Ultra Pest Control Concentrate as directed above and thoroughly drench or inject the entire mound area. Treat all areas of the mound showing activity to provide contact control of the adult fire ants. Tempo® SC Ultra Pest Control Concentrate will provide contact activity and control in the active mound.
Control Of Wood Infesting Pests
Mix a diluted spray by mixing 1 Tablespoon (16 milliliters) of Tempo® SC Ultra Pest Control Concentrate in one gallon of water.
For control of wood infesting beetles on structure surfaces apply diluted spray to thoroughly and evenly cover the area. If spraying overhead, cover all surfaces below the area being sprayed with plastic sheeting or other material which can be disposed of by placing in trash if contamination from dripping occurs. Sprayed surfaces should be avoided until the treated area is completely dry.
For control of above ground termites and wood-infesting beetles in localized areas, apply diluted spray to voids and galleries in damaged wood, and in spaces between wooden structural members and between the sill plate and foundation where wood is vulnerable.
Such applications for termites are not a substitute for mechanical alternation, soil treatment or foundation treatment, but are merely a supplement. For active termite infestations, get a professional inspection.
