RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience, has received a letter of acceptance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for additional label claims to the Temprid SC product label. The broad-spectrum insecticide offers PMPs effective control of more than 50 listed pests, including stink bugs, bed bugs, spiders, ants, aphids and more, according to Bayer.

"We are dedicated to providing PMPs with the tools they need to create pest-free spaces that promote public health and support thriving communities," said Norman Barclift, marketing manager, General Insect Control, Bayer. "Temprid SC's flexible label helps PMPs achieve control of perimeter pests so they can reduce callbacks, increase profits and simplify their business operations."

With these label updates, PMPs can utilize Temprid SC's dual mode of action combining the broad-spectrum control of beta-cyfluthrin with the systemic residual control of imidacloprid for enhanced performance over a single active ingredient, Bayer reports. The label improvements include:

  • Kills pyrethroid-resistant bed bugs and bed bug eggs;
  • Temprid is not repellent to bed bugs;
  • Prevents bed bug infestations for up to six months;
  • Provides a residual efficacy not affected by bed bug heat treatments, up to eight hours of exposure at 140 F;
  • Control of brown marmorated stink bugs and kudzu bugs;
  • Kills stink bugs that feed on protected plants for up to four weeks.

"When we developed Temprid SC, our primary goal was to provide PMPs with a holistic solution to control perimeter pests, such as ants - the number one economic pest in the United States," said Byron Reid, senior principle scientist with Bayer. "Its dual mode of action controls not only the ants themselves, but also the ant's primary food source, honey dew - which is produced by plant pests like aphids, mealy bugs or scale insects."

EPA's acceptance of the new claims for bed bug control, including a lack of repellency and prevention of bed bug infestations for up to six months, will help PMPs eliminate bed bug infestations, Bayer said.

Available as a suspension concentrate, one gallon of the product contains 2 pounds of imidacloprid and 1 pound of beta-cyfluthrin. Temprid SC is available in a 400 millileter bottle, and is designed for application in and around buildings and structures, as well as on established landscape ornamentals around residential and commercial properties.
