    Kills White Grubs

    By Grant on 07/01/2022

    I use fipronil for fire ants and nuisance ants (first insecticide) then Acelepryn for White Grubs (second systemic insecticide; 2x/year). Maybe add Cyber TC to that for fly and mosquitoe knockdown. Had fiber line installed recently, buried the line deeper 4-6” myself. Pulled up lots of St. Augustine sod (about one month after treatment). I did not see “any” White Grubs! Multistage life cycle, those are hard to kill… it appears to be very effective low dose! me

    Saved my Serviceberry Tree from Japanese Beetles

    By Dan on 07/30/2021

    After trying one of the popular brand name solutions to save my Serviceberry tree from Japanese Beetles, I resorted to Acelepryn spray application. Also used on the wife's flower beds that were being selectively defoliated. Worked like a champ, dead beetles galore the next day. Recommended, would buy again.

How long will the product remain effective after application without being watered in?

Where rain is the only means by which this product can be watered in can it be applied several days ahead of needed rainfall?

According to the Acelepryn SC Insecticide product label, you should irrigate turf immediately after applying or allow rain to move product into soil. This should be the day of the application. Please refer to the product label for specific application instructions for what you are treating for.

Can Acelepryn SC Insecticide be applied via a knapsack?

The manual says "no air agitation," however in working small scale (300m2), is knapsack sufficient to get an even coverage?


Acelepryn SC Insecticide should be mixed with water and sprayed on as an application. However, this product has been discontinued at this time.
