Ministry of Health approved the use of insecticides against beetles, maggots as well as other predatory insects. Acelepryn, an insecticide whose major constituent is chlorantraniliprole, is authorised to be used as an insecticide on various food plants. The insecticide only affects root-eating insects and does not affect humans, pets, rodents, birds, insects, flowers, or other species.
When you are addressing caterpillars, experts suggest that you wait 24 hours post sighting before sprinkling or lawn mowing. Don’t pour if there has been a lot of rain or if the ground is wet. Excessive water can impede the pesticide’s uniform dispersion through the topsoil, reducing its potency. It eliminates a huge spectrum of pest species that may ruin your grass in a single treatment, such as:
- The African black beetle
- Scarab of Argentina
- Stem from Argentina Weevil
- Webworm slug
Acelepryn is most effective when applied in mid-September, during maximum egg-laying.
To manage exceptionally strong outbreaks, a subsequent spray in mid-December could be necessary. Please keep in mind that these are simply suggestions, and ideal times may fluctuate depending on your local environment.
It is an excellent choice for usage in universities, playgrounds, golf courses, athletic fields, and private yards. The granular composition allows for precise distribution, making it ideal for tight or limited spaces.
And the first treatment reduces neighbourhood interruption while providing unrivalled season-long coverage for your cherished lawn.
Acelepryn effectively controls all prevalent grass worms in a specific treatment. If you’re caring for a venue, a sports field, or a yard grass, you’ll appreciate the many advantages, which include:
- Unrivalled killing ability against target pests
- A small piece might last months.
- Protected from toxic scheduling—everyone is safe.
- Powdered application is simple and regulated.
- Activities are disrupted as little as possible.
- There is no need for PPE or re-entry limitations.
Is it safe?
Acelepryn is thought to be quite safe. It is not a listed toxin; thus, no PPE is required, and there are no limits on re-entering the premises.
That’s brilliant news for campuses, sports fields, and public squares. It also implies that you may use it on residential property with confidence, knowing there are also no dangerous chemical residues hiding in your grass that could affect your pets or children. Moreover, it won’t harm genetic traits, like DNA; and does not affect the immunological, hormonal, or neurological tracts of animals.
The only documented negative effect is a minor transient discomfort when it comes into contact with the eyes. Typically, no first aid procedures are necessary. If discomfort occurs, rinse the pupils with fresh water and visit your physician if the inflammation worsens.
It is thought to be rather safe for grass, with minimum environmental effect. Because of the granular composition, there is no possibility of mist dispersion or the pesticide falling in areas you don’t want, which is wonderful news for the pollinating insects in the yard.
It should not be used over 10 metres of canals or marshes. After usage, rinse the gear with water. Waste containers should not be burned since flames can emit harmful gases.
Is it safe to cross places that have been treated? Most pesticide regulations include a re-entry time that specifies how long you must wait before accessing affected areas. According to the Acelepryn instructions, sprayed recreational grass could be reached once the spray has dried. Many parks could be gated off to restrict easy accessibility till the re-entry phase is complete. Notices should be placed in all affected locations.
