Acephate 97UP Insecticide

Acephate 97UP is a cost efficient alternative to Orthene that is made from high quality ingredients. This formulation is low odor and controls over 125 different insects listed on the label in certain crops, greenhouses, turf, nurseries, and ornamentals. Acephate 97UP is great for Fire Ants, too!

Same active ingredient as Orthene.

Acephate 97UP is water soluble and provides systemic control of insects through root uptake. Insects eat the foliage of the plants and die. Acephate 97UP also acts on contact, but is more effective when insects ingest the insecticide.

ACEPHATE 97UP is an insecticide for control of pests on selected agricultural crops and in certain non-crop areas. The active ingredient in ACEPHATE 97UP is acephate, 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 97UP through ingestion than by contact. To maintain control repeat application of ACEPHATE 97UP as directed.

Ground Application:

Apply in 20 to 100 gallons of water per acre by conventional ground equipment to ensure thorough coverage of the target crop.

    5 of 5 stars  Great for fire ants
    By Bw in Fayetteville, NC on 05/21/2013

    I mix 9 tablespoons with 4 lbs of white corn meal, 3 cups of sugar and 1 large package of a red jellow mix. stir and stir. let is sit for at least 24 yrs. keep it in a SEALED container. You only need about 1/2 tablespoon on a hill of fire ants. Don't wet it, don't disturb them. They next day the mixure will appear pink and the ants are history. If it is a HUGE mound put a little more and you might need to wait about 3 days to get them all. It works !!

    2 of 5 stars  Acephate 97UP Insecticide
    By Nat in hOUSTON, TX on 09/18/2012

    a decrease of the seen roaches, but definily it has not solved the problem. In the past i have used other products that were more effective but that was years ago. I could not in good faith recommend this product. when its all used up i will continue my search to find a better solution to my roach problem.

    3 of 5 stars  Kills grasshoppers
    By Dick in Camp Verde, AZ on 10/09/2014
    Verified Purchase

    The product did a great job of killing the grasshoppers in my yard and on shrubs. It did not seam to harm my dog, but it did make her sneeze and wheeze for about three days. I would have liked to spray it again, but I am afraid of killing the birds that have come to eat the from my juniper tree. Next year I will spry sooner, if the product keeps that long.

QWhat are the mixing instructions for Acephate 97UP in a greenhouse?
I have a greenhouse full of orchids

AYou did not mention what type of insect you are trying to treat but per page 22 of product label you would use between 4 - 8 oz in 100 gallons of water.  Please refer to the label for complete instructions on the particular pest you are treating for.

QHow much spray will a 1 pound bag of Acephate 97UP Insecticide make?

AThe Acephate gets used at a variety of rates depending on the insect you are treating for. You will use up to 1 lb per acre and the water you dilute it with will be depending on how much you need to cover your area. The water in this case acts as a carrier, so whether it takes you 10 gallons or 50 gallons of water to cover an acre of area adequately, both are correct so long as you are using the correct amout of acephate over that acre.

QHow much Acephate 97UP in a two gallon sprayer for rhody weevils?
Suburban garden usage

AYou did not state specifically what plant you are trying to eliminate the weevils from, however in all areas of the Acephate 97UP Product Label, it states to use a rate of 12oz per acre for weevil eliminateion. This will come down to roughly 0.27 oz per 1000 sq/ft in no less than 2 gallons of water.

QHow much Acephate 97UP insecticide do I mix per gallon of water?
Spraying outside perimeter of home and along baseboards for pest control and the directions have been misplaced. I need to know what ratio I should use...please advise


For outdoor and perimeter spray excluding residental turf with†Acephate 97UP Insecticide the rate is 1.2 oz per gallon of water.†It does only list wasps, ants, crickets, earwigs, and pillbugs†on the product label for this application, so it would not be the best product for general pest control and cannot be used inside for any reason.†For general pest control we would recommend something like Talstar P which is labeled for over 75 pests and can be used by inside and outside.

QCan Acephate 97UP Insecticide be diluted/poured at trunk of large trees for tent caterpillars and fall webworms?
Large birch trees (N Florida) have been getting worse each of last 2 years with tent caterpillars & webworms - horrible defoliage, etc. Treated w/Bayer Tree Insecticide at base of trees last year - did nothing. Too large to spray. What would be the dilution rate?


No, Acephate 97UP Insecticide is only labeled for soil drench treatments when treating for fire or harvester ants. The products that are generally recommended for tent caterpillars and webworms are only foliar treatments, such as Conserve SC.

QHow much should I use?
I have Leaf miner on my boxwood shrubs which are about 20 in Diameter. how much and how often should I treat the shrubs. Thanks

AAcephate 97UP Insecticide should be used when the leafminers appear. You will repeat every 14 days as needed. The label also states that the product should not be sprayed 3 times in a tree or shrubs growing season. You will use 0.25 lbs per 100 gallons of water.

QAre pecans safe to eat when acephate has been used?
My tree has tent catapillars

AThe Acephate is not specifically labeled as safe to use on Pecans for tent caterpillars, however other nut trees are on the label and it states you cannot harvest any of it for a year after Acephate 97 has been applied. You could use something like Fertilome Triple Action to spray your tree with for tent caterpillars and it can be used right up to day of harvest.

QI've got an ash tree that has had Ash Leaf Curl from aphids. My research has shown the best fix to be Acephate
One article in particular said "Since the aphids are hidden inside the curled leaf, contact insecticides will not work well. If you decide to use an insecticide, a systemic insecticide that is absorbed by the plant will work the best. There are some systemic insecticides that can be applied as a soil drench in the root zone, but it takes several weeks for the chemical to course from the roots to the leaves, so results may take a while. Remember to read and follow label directions on all pesticides!" So is there an orthene acephate that could be used as a soil drench and when should I drench it? Thanks for your time.


There is not an acephate based product that we carry that can be used as a soil drench.  The most popular products for soil drenches contain Imidacloprid such as the Dominion 2L and Adonis 2F.  We recommend contacting your local cooperative extension office to ask about insecticide timing for the pests in your region.

QCan the Acephate 97UP be broadcast in dry form with a spreader?

AAcephate 97UP is a water-soluble insecticide that has to be mixed with water.  It is a systemic that will be readily absorbed by plant roots and foliage so you would not be able to apply in dry form with a spreader.
