Acelepryn® insecticide is a critical component of an effective, long-term strategy to control annual bluegrass weevil (ABW). Not only does Acelepryn offer best-in-class control of ABW, it is an important component for resistance management as it offers a novel mode of action for insect control. Acelepryn controls ABW small larvae that feed inside grass stems, while Provaunt® insecticide or Provaunt WDG insecticide controls larger or older larvae feeding on the crown of grass plants.
Acelepryn is the only turf product in Group 28, the anthranilic diamides. This is the latest insecticide class recognized by IRAC (Insecticide Resistance Action Committee).
A single application of Acelepryn at 12 fl. oz./A during May provides:
Effective ABW larval control
Season-long white grub and caterpillar control
Lowest water solubility (1.0 PPM) of any registered grub control product
Lowest application rate (0.1 lb ai/A) utilized for grub control
