Darkling beetles (lesser mealworms) are a major challenge for poultry producers. Beetles can negatively impact the productivity of an operation by consuming feed, biting the skin of birds, damaging insulation of the house and spreading disease. Tempo provides control of both adults and larvae of lesser mealworm.


How to Apply*

Mix 2 level scoops (19 grams) of Tempo in 3.75L of water per 100 m2 and apply to cracks, crevices, walls and other surfaces where the pests have been seen or where they hide.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

When resistance is possible, rotation is critical. Pests can develop reduced susceptibility to an active ingredient over time. To help prevent this, consider rotating to a product from a different chemical class (e.g. rotate Tempo® with Credo® SC and Debantic® and for darkling beetle control).
