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.”
