Is 1.2 oz of Acephate 97 recommended per gallon of water for peach borers?

Seams like a lot even for fire ants! How much for orchard and ormamental shubs? I have had less than expected results with Imaclorprid 75 wps and peach/ash bores. I still have infestations in peaches, ash an lilacs.

Answer:

Acephate 75UP Insecticide is not labeled for use on peaches or for residential ornamentals, so we cannot recommend it for these applications. You can use Sevin Concentrate (new active ingredient) to protect peach trees from borers, but if you have trees that are already heavily infested, there is not much you can do. We also have Peach Borer traps here.
