How to apply Acelepryn GR
Unmatched season-long grub and caterpillar control is so easy with Acelepryn GR. No more mixing up messy spray formulations or using unwieldy sprayers—the new granulated Acelpryn means you can use any professional turf fertiliser spreader. Apply from early spring onwards or as soon as you notice signs of infestation.
Application rates range from 75 kg/ha to 150 kg/ha but for optimal efficiency and longevity of performance the higher rate will provide longer protection (up to 6 months).
Ensure even distribution of granules for optimal performance. Activation of the pesticide takes place in the presence of water so minimal irrigation is required—3 to 6mm of irrigation will deliver optimal control.
If you are targeting caterpillars we recommend that you delay watering or mowing the lawn for 24 hours after application. Do not apply during particularly heavy periods of rain or when the soil is saturated.
Too much water will hamper the even distribution of the pesticide through the soil and will reduce its effectiveness.
Acelepryn GR controls in a single application a wide range of insect pests that can devastate your turf including:
- African black beetle
- Argentinean scarab
- Argentine Stem Weevil
- Sod webworm
- Lawn armyworm
Optimal results can be obtained if you apply Acelepryn GR mid September before or during peak egg production (or in the case of Argentinean Scarab, mid-December).
A second application in mid December may be appropriate to control extremely heavy infestations. Please note, these guidelines are general only and optimal timings may vary according to your local climate.
Acelepryn is ideal for use in schools, parks, golf courses, sports grounds and residential backyards. The granulated formulation enables precision application so it’s great for tight, confined areas.
And the single application minimises disruption to the community while still delivering unmatched season long protection for your prized turf.
Is Acelepryn GR safe?
Acelepryn GR is considered extremely safe. It’s not a scheduled poison, which means that you do not need to wear PPE gear nor are there any re-entry restrictions to the grounds.
That’s great news for schools, sports grounds and community-use spaces such as parks. It also means you can use it on your home lawn safe in the knowledge that there are no harmful pesticide residues lurking in your lawn that can harm your children or pets.
There only known side effect is the slight possibility that it may cause some temporary irritation on contact with the eyes. No first aid measures are usually required. If irritation does occur wash the eyes with clean water and if irritation persists see your doctor.
Acelepryn GR is considered to have a very high safe rating for turf with minimal impacts for the environment. The granulated formulation means that you don’t have any risk of spray drift or the insecticide landing in places you don’t want it to—that’s great news for the bees and other beneficial insects in your garden.
Do not apply Acelepryn GR within 10 metres of water ways or wetlands. After use wash equipment in water. Do not burn empty containers as combustion may produce toxic fumes.
