Can Orthene Aerosol be used on vegetable gardens?
No, Orthene Aerosol is not labeled to be used on any plants and would likely cause damage to plants because of the propellent used to get the product out of the can. Acephate 75 SP contains the same active ingredient as Orthene and can be used on some vegetable plants. Please read the Acephate 75 SP product label and be sure the plants you want to treat are listed.
