Orthene 97 Spray Insecticide

Orthene 97 Spray Insecticide is used for insect pests on trees, ornamentals and turf. Its powerful active ingredient, Acephate, works in two ways. First, Orthene 97 Spray kills insects on contact, then it penetrates plant tissue for local systemic control. No worries about rain or irrigation because plants will absorb this product within 24 hours. This product is safe to be applied without a mask due to low vapor pressure, low oral and dermal toxicity, and volatility. Orthene 97 Spray is for non crop area ant control, sod farms, outdoor and perimeter spray, trees and shrubs, greenhouse and outdoor floral crops, ground covers, and golf courses.

NOT FOR INDOOR RESIDENTIAL USE




GENERAL USE RESTRICTIONS

For use on turf, use limited to sod farms and golf courses, except when applying to mound or spot treatment for fire ant and harvester ant control.

Do not apply with low pressure handwand except for control of fire ants as a mound treatment and when used on ornamental trees, shrubs and floral plants grown for non-agricultural or non-commercial use.

Not for indoor residential use. For greenhouse use, use is limited to commercial greenhouses for use on ornamental, floral and foliage plants and tobacco (floatbed application).

This product and its degradate are highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment on blooming crops or weeds. Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops or weeds while bees are actively visiting the treatment area.

    5 of 5 stars  Good general purpose insecticide
    By in Windham, NH on 06/03/2013
    Verified Purchase

    I have used this insecticide for many years. It is easy to mix. I recently learned that it can travel through both the phylum and xylum (sp) plant tissues. That means that it can go both up and down in a plant, giving much better protection against insects. It has an EPA code word of CAUTION, so it isn't as toxic as many other insecticides.

    Orthene 97 is a good chemical control for thrips on roses. I've been using an organic pest control spray but still having problems with thrips. (Thrips are tiny and love to attack the buds and blossoms on roses.) I've used Orthene before and found it effective. Works very well.

QHow do I dilute Orthene 97 to spray privets for scale?
If I buy the Orthene or Acephate in pellets, how would I dilute it with water for use in a one gallon hand sprayer?

A

Orthene 97 Spray Insecticide†is NOT†labeled†for scale on privets. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office for a recommendation. They can determine if the privets†have†scale or a fungus. Excessive moisture and poor air circulation could also play a part in the planted areas and they will determine if this is also a factor.†

QHow much Orthene do I mix with 1 gallon of water to spray on my spruce trees to treat agelgids?

A

Orthene 97 isn't labeled for use on spruce trees or for controlling adelgids. A better option would be Dominion 2L.†When using†Dominion 2L†as a soil drench for†adelgids you should use 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) of Dominion 2L per inch of trunk diameter (D.B.H.) diluted in 1 pint - 1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter.† † The amount of water that is used will vary depending on soil conditions and volumes that are easy for applicators to use. The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint per inch of trunk diameter but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter. Denser soils such as clay do not accept water as readily, so the lower volume of water is suggested.† Since sandy soils can accept more water, using the higher volume of water is preferred. After the soil drench has been applied you should water it in with at east 1/2 inch of water. Note: Water simply acts as a carrier and it is important that even distribution of the product is achieved. Thus, more water may be used if the applicator feels runoff will not occur and proper penetration of the root zone is achieved. Insecticides applied to the soil are taken up by the roots and trans-located throughout the tree or shrub. Root/soil drenches offer the advantage of requiring no special equipment to apply (other than a bucket or watering can). However, surface layers of organic matter, such as mulch or leaf litter, can bind the insecticide and reduce uptake. Before applying drenches, it is important to remove or pull back any mulch or dead leaves so the insecticide solution is poured directly on the mineral soil. It is also important to keep the soil around the tree or shrub moist for the next 7-10 days after applications to encourage uptake.

QCan Orthene be used as a deterrent for crayfish?
I havery a back yard that is close to a creek. I think the crawfish/crayfish got into my yard from there. Now they have jacked up my yard and about 40 holes and mounds and some areas I sink down. Can I use this as a deterrent.? How do I apply to my yard. Nothing edible is in the yard.

A

Orthene 97 Spray Insecticide†is not a deterrent and would not be recommended for this use or in the yard as it is not labeled for this. †There is no product that is labeled for crayfish. If you see crayfish, the water table is very high and the usage of ANY insecticide can lead to poisoning the local water supply.†The Tomahawk Model 405 is a double door crayfish trap that could be used.
