Stinks but works great!
By Sue on 05/03/2008
Acephate 75 SP is the best product I have found to get rid of fire ants!! I went into our local feed store one day and asked about poison for fire ants, because what I was buying at Walmart just was not working. So she told me this stuff stinks awful and is expensive but it works. She told me to mix about 4-5 teaspoonfuls into a small bag of cornmeal and just sprinkle it on the ant mounds and yahoo!! Fire ants be gone!! I will not use anything else!! I do not mind paying good money for a product that works, and this stuff does.

By Mrs.g.walker, in atlanta, ga. on 01/05/2014
I been buying this for years, I use it for everything, outside, indoors etc. it kills them all, roaches, spiders, water bugs, I even loaned some to a friend and it killed bed bugs as well, I simply made up some in an old spray bottle and went around the baseboards, windows ledges, behind furniture, in between the cracks of dresser drawers, behind the commode, etc. any where you think they might hide, just use about 5 scoops and fill the rest with water & shake, it stinks like hell and dries with a white mist but wipe down and forget about your problem, repeat in 6 months. ok around kids and pets, but do wipe down with a dry damp cloth, not wet, you don't want to wash it away, don't have the kids or pets licking these areas, but I assure you they won't lick twice, it's bitter, stings & stinks, spray good and good out for a couple of hours, come home, air the place down a minute and happy, happy for the next 6 months, at least that's how I do it --enjoy!!!!!( ijs,& in my opinion).

Honey bee control with Acephate
By Bob in magnolia tx on 06/09/2010
I used Acephate to get rid of Honey Bees in the walls of a trailer at the deer lease. There were about 1000 bees going in a hole of the trailer. Put 3 large teaspoons in the hole after dark and we never saw another bee around the trailer, starting with the very next morning. I was told about this from a bee keeper here in Texas. It also does a great job on fire ants.

good place to shop
By Lori in orlando on 02/02/2017
good service helpful people good product line really good pricing i'm a happy shopper & will definitely buy from them again.
Thank you for your comments and your business!
By Paul in Okahumpka, FL on 10/07/2016
I have purchased this product several times. It does work! I REALLY LIKE the NEW plastic bottles this product is using. A lot easier to dispense the product from.
By 350zmo in Woodstock, Alabama on 09/13/2016
Product actually came in plastic bottles instead of a can which is better because of the easy open cap instead of a can lid you have to pry open. This stuff kills em dead. Just sprinkle a teaspoon or so on top of the mound and by next morning the mound starts to collapse and in a few days is gone. Dogs leave this stuff alone too. Make no mistake this stuff smells bad, like crap actually. So you will want to store in a shed, not your house, garage or shop. But it works great and is very efficient. Best price I could find was here @13.97 in case of 12 1-pound cans 9/2016.

I hate Fire Ants
By Dave in Hill Country Texas on 04/16/2015
I love this stuff. Following the simple instructions and two to three days later the mound is dead. No need to disturb the mound. As soon as you sprinkle in on they start coming out.

Fire Ants HATE this stuff!
By Billy in Jacksonville, FL on 11/04/2014
This stuff works great. Has a strong smell, but if you stay on top of all the mounds... you will win the war on fire ants! I shook a little on all my mounds and in a few hours they were abandoned. Yard is almost ant free.

This product really works great. We put in a bottle with a shacker top (large holes in it) and sprinkled on the nests. They were gone the next day. Will purchase product again.

QIs Acephate 75 SP diluted with water or used full strength?
08/07/2011 Robert from Hartford, Wi
QWhat quantities of Acephate 75 do I mix per gallon of water for home sprayer uses?
The fire ant killer -- acephate 75% -- can be used as a systemic insecticide in non-food applications but the can's label is not helpful in determining how many teaspoons, for example, to use per gallon of water in various garden applications.
AAcephate 75 was reviewed by the EPA and they had to change their product label for only the fire ant uses listed. Any other use would now be considered an "off label" use and we are prohibited from giving directions for off label uses. You most likely can find the old label by searching "Acephate 75 product label" online.
QDo you have a systemic acephate product?
AACEPHATE 75 SP is 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 75 SP through ingestion than by contact.
QWhat are the mixing instructions for Acephate 75 SP?
APlease take a few minutes to read over the Fire Ant Killer Acephate 75 SP product label. 1-2 tsp should be sprinkled over each fire ant mound in the early morning or the late afternoon.

QIs it safe around dogs?
AYes, Acephate 75 SP is safe around pets. Acephate is classified as a General Use Pesticide (GUP), meaning that it is unlikely to harm the environment or pets as long as you follow the directions on the product label. Anyone can safely use a GUP, not just the pros.

QWill Acephate 75 kill leaf-cutter ants? How long does it take to work?
A Acephate 75 is not labeled for controlling leaf cutter ants so would not be recommended. Leaf cutter ants can be a difficult pest to get rid of. The colonies are large and the ants make their own food so poison baits only have limited effects on this species of ants. According to several university websites Maxforce Complete Bait Granulescontaining hydramethylnon are some what effective, though they will usually eliminate only about 30% of a large colony in one treatment and will need to be reapplied several times. Deltagard granules is one of the only products actually labeled for leaf cutter ants. The product label recommends treating the mound directly and lightly watering the granules in. Again it may take several treatments to get the desired results. We also recommend contacting your local cooperative extension office to see if they have any recommendations for products that have worked for other people in your region.

QWhat is the correct mixture of Acephate 75 SP for drench application to control aphids?
Yes, I have read the label and it isn't there, however, I have found it in the metric system on a European site. I need it in ounces and gallons.
AThe reason you cannot find this information on the product label is because Acephate 75 is no longer registered for use as a systemic on plants in the United States. The EPA made this change in the last year or two. We recommend that you use a product that is labeled for use a systemic such as Criterion 75 WSP, Dominion 2L, or Merit.
