The Acephate Pro 75 SP Insecticide is an effective solution for control of fire ants. It works best in crop and non-crop areas, greenhouses, nurseries, turf, and ornamental use. The active ingredient is acephate, a water soluble insecticide readily absorbed by plant roots and foliage to give systematic control of feeding insects. Insect pests are generally controlled more effectively by this solution through ingestion than by contact. Application of Acephate Pro 75 SP to maintain control should be repeated only as directed. Do not apply under conditions involving possible drift to food, forage or other plantings that might be damaged or the crops thereof rendered unfit for sale, use or consumption.
This product eliminated my fire ants and I will be purchasing more. Only drawback for me was that I was buying it to apply to a horse pasture, and wasn't aware that it shouldn't be used for that. On the website under Pet Safe it reads Yes, if used according to product label. After speaking with the owner of the company I switched to a different product that's OK to use around animals, and will be purchasing more of Acephate Pro 75 SP for my lawn only.
This is not a very complex review-Texas Leaf Cutter Ants form huge colonies. They enter through mounds they construct. A few sprinkles of this product killed many. I'd buy it again. Delivered as promised and performed as promised.
If you have roaches you won't have them long. I had roaches but the infestation was not bad. I was treating my home with boric acid but it did not rid my home of the pest, just kept them at bay. But after treating my home with this they were completely gone. Sprinkled it along my baseboards and cabinets and they were gone. It's been four months and still no roaches. Highly recommended. This stuff is the truth. Worth every cent.
In South Ga., the ants just about take you away. This is the only product I have found that really works. My late husband used it for years and since I am the one getting rid of the ants, I am using it.
Is Acephate Pro 75 SP Insecticide mixable with water?
I have a portable pump sprayer that holds one gallon of liquid. I intended to mix the powder with water to spray on or around some out door items as a prevention measuer. How much water to powder ration should I use?
Acephate Pro 75 SP Insecticide is not labeled to be mixed with water. It should only be used to treat fire ant mounds in the yard by sprinkling the product itself on the mounds. We would be happy to recommend a product if you would let us know what you are trying to prevent?
Is Acephate Pro 75 SP Insecticide safe to use in vegetable garden?
No, Acephate Pro 75 SP Insecticide is not labeled to be used in vegetable gardens. We would need to know what insects you are treating and what vegetables you have in the garden. Please take a look at our Insecticides for Edible Gardens Page for products that are labeled to treat a variety of insects in vegetable gardens.
