Acephate 75 Turf
Lawn and Ornamental Systemic Insecticide
Acephate 75 Turf Insecticide Discontinued
To get rid of lawn and ornamental pests, use one of the following:
TC - Cypermethrin concentrate used to kill ants,
carpenter ants, chinch bugs, molecrickets and many other outdoor pests.
Bifenthrin concentrates such as Talstar,
IT are both great for molecrickets and ants.
Acephate 75 Turf kills molecrickets, chinch bugs, ants, Lacebugs and lawn pests.
This is a systemic insecticide that must be applied 48 hours before rainfall or irrigation. Before treating with Acephate 75 Turf, the ground should be very wet. Wetting the lawn with a mild soap solution works even better. This pulls mole crickets and chinch bugs up to the top of the thatch and insures a good kill after spraying. Apply Acephate with a hose end sprayer, making applications early or late in the day. Dial-A-Mix sprayer works best.
A one pound container of Acephate will cover 8,000 to 12,000 square feet. Three applications are needed each year. Spot applications may have to be made in between these main applications. To monitor molecricket and chinch bug activity, pour a solution of lemon scented dish detergent on suspected areas of turf. If chinch bugs or mole crickets are there, they will emerge within a few minutes.
