Tempo insecticide review
If you are in the need for a very powerful yet non-toxic insecticide that will be able to kill many different insects from outdoors pests like mosquitoes to indoors ones like bedbugs and roaches then you should consider this Tempo insecticide.
The main thing that makes this insecticide effective is the active ingredient in it. It’s called 11.8% beta-Cyfluthrin which is a parathyroid insecticide, meaning that it is made up from organic compounds and that it is one of the most wildly used household insecticides. It is mostly non-toxic to humans as well as pets, however, in large doses or, if the insecticide solution comes in contact with your mouth, eyes or any open wound, it might cause allergic reactions or health problems. And remember that this insecticide is extremely toxic to aquatic beings, so make sure that you use the Tempo insecticide cautiously, keeping it away from water and ground water and either removing any aquatic inverters from premises or tightly covering all water bodies before spraying, to prevent its contact with water.
This Tempo pesticide is able to kill more than a 100 different insects, pests and bugs in variety of settings. It will be as successful at killing termites in your walls and mosquitoes in your backyard, as it will do with fruit flies in your pantry or bedbugs in your bed. See the full list of target insects of this insecticide here.
It is recommended to use this insecticide with a hand sprayer, because this way you will be able to spray out the optimal amount of insecticide while having wide enough spray so that it doesn’t take you that long to spray your whole intended area with it. Since this insecticide is a water based suspension concentrate (SC) rather than a ready-to-use solution, it needs to be diluted with water before you use it. For mosquitoes and general outdoors usage it is recommended to use 0.27 to 0.54 oz (8 to 16 ml) of the solution per one gallon of water, which will create you enough solution to spray around 1,000 square feet area with the Tempo insecticide. But if you see that the infestation is severe, add more insecticide to the water to make the solution stronger. And, you can use a cold fogger with this solution, too, just make sure that the sprayer you use have a lower pressure spray option, so the solution is distributed properly, and that the fogger is meant for water based solutions as the Tempo bug killer is a water-based insecticide.
Insecticide should be shaken before use and applied as needed, but no frequently than every 7 to 10 days. Don’t apply it when it is raining or just after rain, as that can cause run-offs that can result in water contamination. And if applied on turf then don’t do it more than 6 timer per year as that can seriously damage the turf.
Make sure that you also use protective clothing, safety glasses and even a respirator if possible to prevent the possibility of the Tempo insecticide solution being absorbed through your skin, inhaled or swallowed. After you are finished working with the insecticide, store it in a cool and dry place, preferably out of the way so that it cannot contaminate other solutions or accidentally spill. And do not store it in extreme cold or heat, as that will damage the insecticide, making it inefficient.
Tempo Insecticide is the perfect thing to help you rid of more than 100 different insect species. From mosquitoes to bedbugs to ants this insecticide concentrate will be powerful enough to kill any insect upon contact and keep them away from the sprayed area for a while. The insecticide consists of an active ingredient that is non-toxic to humans or pets, but will get rid of any insects in matter of seconds. So if you need a good outdoors or indoors insecticide, pick up this Tempo SC Ultra one.
