View the Labels/SDS information for Acelepryn Insecticide.
Acelepryn is registered by the Environmental Protection Agency under its Reduced Risk Program*. Additionally, Acelepryn does not have a signal word on its label because of the results of required acute toxicity studies conducted on the formulation. It is a good fit for controlling insects on lawns, sport fields and golf courses where preservation of beneficial and non-target organisms is a concern.

Dr. Daniel Potter from the University of Kentucky has conducted studies to examine the impact of Acelepryn on beneficial and non-target organisms including earthworms and honeybees.
His results found that Acelepryn did not adversely affect bumble bee colony foraging even when the worker bees were exposed to flowering clover that had been directly sprayed.1

Colonies foraging on turf treated with clothianidin had higher worker and brood mortality, reduced honey pot production, delayed weight gain and impaired queen production compared to controls.1

“Chlorantraniliprole, part of the newer anthranilic diamide class of chemistry, can control many of the same pests that are targeted with neonicotinoids and pyrethroids including white grubs, caterpillars, and billbugs. However, it does not have any documented effects on pollinating insects and may be a good fit for industry initiatives to reduce the impacts of turf and landscape management on pollinators.”

Acelepryn® insecticide has become the standard for grub control due to its excellent performance. A single application, applied early, delivers season-long control of grubs, billbugs and turf caterpillars such as armyworms, cutworms and sod webworms. The broad-spectrum control of Acelepryn is also effective against European Crane Fly and can suppress chinch bug populations. As an insecticide available for turf in group 28 (anthanilic diamides), the unique class of chemistry and novel mode of action makes Acelepryn a great resistance management tool. Read more »
It is essential for superintendents to have a working knowledge of modes of action for fungicides, insecticides and herbicides to aid in the tank-mixing process. These codes, represented as Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC) codes, Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) codes and Herbicide Resistance Action Committee (HRAC) codes, are typically listed on product labels.
