Protect trees, turf grass, ornamentals and other non-crop plants from insect damage with Orthene 97 Insecticide Spray. This broad-spectrum insecticide contains 97.4 percent acephate, a powerful active ingredient that works in two ways by killing insects on contact and by penetrating the tissue of the plant to provide long-term systemic insect control. Orthene 97 absorbs completely within 24 hours and starts working right away. To protect your plants from grasshoppers, whiteflies, aphids and other insects, turn to Orthene 97 Insecticide Spray.

How Orthene 97 Insecticide Spray Works

Acephate, the primary active ingredient in Orthene 97, delivers powerful insect pest control in two complementary ways. It kills insect pests on contact, and it is also absorbed by the plant to deliver local systemic control. Its effectiveness is not affected by rain, irrigation or sprinklers, so it is an effective solution across a variety of settings and situations. This product is easily applied with a sprayer and provides protection from damaging insects for several weeks.

Where to Use Orthene 97 Insecticide Spray

Orthene 97 is suitable for residential and commercial properties, where it can be applied directly to plants or drenched onto anthills in non-crop areas. It is intended for use on trees, ornamental plants and turf grass and can be safely used on vegetables, tobacco, cotton, peanuts, container-grown nursery plants, greenhouse and outdoor floral crops, ground cover and other non-crop plants. Environments where Orthene 97 is commonly used include:
  • Athletic fields
  • Recreational areas
  • Golf courses
  • Sod farms
  • Residential gardens and backyards
