Our local Ag Center recommended making a paste out of Acephate and painting around the trunks of the crepe myrtle trees twice a year to prevent aphids. The aphids leave a secretion behind which in turn creates black soot mold on the leaves of crepe myrtles.
Acephate Pro 75 SP Insecticide is not labeled to be mixed with water or used as a paste. It should only be used to treat fire ant mounds in the yard by sprinkling the product itself on the mounds.
