Tempo SC Ultra, manufactured by Bayer, is a professional insecticide that delivers a quick kill to listed pests such as carpenter ants and ticks. This product contains a suspension concentrate formulation, which provides the killing power of a pesticide powder but in liquid form. In this liquid formulation, Tempo SC Ultra makes for a convenient use with less mess and less hassle.
Tempo SC Ultra contains beta-cyfluthrin 11.8%, a synthetic pyrethroid that 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.
To use Tempo SC Ultra, you will need to mix the product in a handheld sprayer

- Step 2: In your selected sprayer, fill halfway with water then add in the appropriate amount of Tempo SC Ultra according to your calculations and then fill the rest of the way with water. Close the sprayer lid and shake well and you are ready to apply.
- Step 3: Apply the Tempo SC Ultra mixture 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. Re-apply Tempo SC Ultra every 7 to 10 days if needed to treat your pest problem.
