Are pecans safe to eat when acephate has been used?
My tree has tent catapillars
The 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.
