Acephate 97UP Insecticide

Acephate 97UP is a cost efficient alternative to Orthene that is made from high quality ingredients. This formulation is low odor and controls over 125 different insects listed on the label in certain crops, greenhouses, turf, nurseries, and ornamentals. Acephate 97UP is great for Fire Ants, too!

Same active ingredient as Orthene.




Acephate 97UP is water soluble and provides systemic control of insects through root uptake. Insects eat the foliage of the plants and die. Acephate 97UP also acts on contact, but is more effective when insects ingest the insecticide.

ACEPHATE 97UP is an insecticide for control of pests on selected agricultural crops and in certain non-crop areas. The active ingredient in ACEPHATE 97UP is acephate, a water-soluble insecticide readily absorbed by plant roots and foliage to give systemic control of feeding insects. Insect pests are generally controlled more effectively by ACEPHATE 97UP through ingestion than by contact. To maintain control repeat application of ACEPHATE 97UP as directed.

Ground Application:

Apply in 20 to 100 gallons of water per acre by conventional ground equipment to ensure thorough coverage of the target crop.

    5 of 5 stars  Great for fire ants
    By Bw in Fayetteville, NC on 05/21/2013

    I mix 9 tablespoons with 4 lbs of white corn meal, 3 cups of sugar and 1 large package of a red jellow mix. stir and stir. let is sit for at least 24 yrs. keep it in a SEALED container. You only need about 1/2 tablespoon on a hill of fire ants. Don't wet it, don't disturb them. They next day the mixure will appear pink and the ants are history. If it is a HUGE mound put a little more and you might need to wait about 3 days to get them all. It works !!

    2 of 5 stars  Acephate 97UP Insecticide
    By Nat in hOUSTON, TX on 09/18/2012

    a decrease of the seen roaches, but definily it has not solved the problem. In the past i have used other products that were more effective but that was years ago. I could not in good faith recommend this product. when its all used up i will continue my search to find a better solution to my roach problem.

    3 of 5 stars  Kills grasshoppers
    By Dick in Camp Verde, AZ on 10/09/2014
    Verified Purchase

    The product did a great job of killing the grasshoppers in my yard and on shrubs. It did not seam to harm my dog, but it did make her sneeze and wheeze for about three days. I would have liked to spray it again, but I am afraid of killing the birds that have come to eat the from my juniper tree. Next year I will spry sooner, if the product keeps that long.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Postponed use.
    By William in Granville, OH on 06/11/2017

    Arrived in a timely manner, for use on sawfly larvae on a blue spruce. Then I learned there are three active bird nests in the spruce, so I can't use it yet. No birds were eating the sawfly caterpillars because one of the nesting birds was chasing would-be predator birds away. Application must wait. The tree is badly damaged.

QHow much Acephate 97UP insecticide do I mix per gallon of water?
Spraying outside perimeter of home and along baseboards for pest control and the directions have been misplaced. I need to know what ratio I should use...please advise

A

For outdoor and perimeter spray excluding residental turf with Acephate 97UP Insecticide the rate is 1.2 oz per gallon of water. It does only list wasps, ants, crickets, earwigs, and pillbugs on the product label for this application, so it would not be the best product for general pest control and cannot be used inside for any reason. For general pest control we would recommend something like Talstar P which is labeled for over 75 pests and can be used by inside and outside.

QWhat are the mixing instructions for Acephate 97UP in a greenhouse?
I have a greenhouse full of orchids

AYou did not mention what type of insect you are trying to treat but per page 22 of product label you would use between 4 - 8 oz in 100 gallons of water.  Please refer to the label for complete instructions on the particular pest you are treating for.

QCan I use Acephate 97UP as a soil drench for control of spider mites on 25' tall itallian cypress?
Is this effective and if so I need to know the application for such?

A

Acephate 97UP Insecticide is not labeled to treat for spider mites so would not be recommended.  We are unaware of any systemic product that is labeled for use for spider mite control. Instead we would recommend a foliage spray product such as Talstar P, which is labeled for use on ornamental plants and is also labeled for spider mites.

QWill Acephate 97UP penetrate the soil to kill earthworms?

A

Neither Acephate 97UP Insecticide nor any other products are labeled to eliminate earthworms since these are largely beneficial creatures. To treat moles, we recommend Talpirid Mole Bait, traps, or gassers. We outline each of these options in our Mole Treatment Guide here. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

QHow much Acephate 97UP do I use per 2 gallon tank to treat roses for thrips?

A

You would use 8 oz (1/2 lb) of Acephate 97UP Insecticide per 100 gallons, which breaks down to 0.08 oz per gal of water, which is about 2 grams or 1/2 teaspoon. If you only have a few plants, then you may want to consider Bonide Systemic Insect Control, which has the same active ingredient but it easier to measure for smaller applications on roses for thrip control.

QIs Acephate 97UP Insecticide safe to use indoors for roaches?
Having issues with roaches in my home, and I am at my witts end trying to treat it. Would this product be safe to spray in my home, or underneath my home to help?

A

Acephate 97UP Insecticide is not labeled to be used inside homes for roaches and is not safe to do so.  

One of our roach control kits would be recommended for roach control. These professional kits includes non-staining, low odor concentrated insecticide for spraying the outside perimeter of the home and inside underneath appliances, behind cabinets, under toilets and sinks, etc. You'll also get Roach Bait Gel to help get rid of those roaches that like to hide. Baits can be applied up high in the kitchen in the corner of cabinets and in cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms. The bait contains a slow-acting poison that attracts and kills feeding roaches, who also spread the bait to other roaches by contact or by sharing food. Finally, an Insect Growth Regulator is offered which will stop roaches from laying eggs, helping to halt the infestation. The combination of an IGR with roach bait is a highly effective roach control strategy that is widely used by pest control professionals. The insecticide must be applied with a 1 gallon pump sprayer.

Here is a link to a great article that really goes into depth in explaining a roach control program.

QWhat is the application rate per gallon of Acephate 97UP Insecticide to treat Root Aphids on tomato plants?

A

Acephate 97UP Insecticide is not labeled to be used on tomatoes so we are unable to provide a rate for this use. We would instead recommend the Monterey Fruit Tree & Vegetable Systemic Soil Drench.   Evenly apply ½ ounce of product in 1 quart of water per 10 square feet of vegetable row to be treated.
