A professional wettable powder insecticide that controls thrips, plant bugs, aphids, and whiteflies in agricultural and non-crop areas.
What pests are targeted by Acephate insecticides?
Acephate is most effective on turf, tree, and ornamental pests. Also control ants (including imported fire ants), cockroaches, crickets, firebrats earwigs, pillbugs, sowbugs, pantry pests, and wasps.
How does Acephate work to kill insects?
Organophosphate insecticides, like Acephate, work by interrupting the electrochemical processes that nerves use to communicate with muscles and with other nerves. This causes a build-up in the chemical acetylocholine. Eventually, the build-up of acetylocholine in the muscles causes over-stimulation, resulting in paralysis and death.
