- Acephate is an organophosphate foliar
spray insecticide of moderate persistence with residual systemic
activity of about 10-15 days at the
- Acephate and its primary metabolite,
methamidophos, are toxic to Heliothis spp that are considered resistant
to other organophosphate insecticides.
- Acephate is an important systemic
organophosphorus insecticide with toxicity attributed to bioactivation
on metabolic conversion to
methamidophos which acts as an
- Acephate is quickly absorbed,
translocated, and transformed in pine seedlings and cotton
- The chemical was metabolized via
cleavage of the amide bond to form methamidophos and an unknown, but
insecticidally active compound, which were identified in the roots,
stems, and leaves.
- Methamidophos was also found in cotton
leaves following a single application of acephate.
- Acephate is rapidly absorbed into the
leaf tissue of cotton plants when applied foliarly, with nearly 40% of
the applied acephate present in the
internal extract and 25%
remaining on the leaf surface 24 hours after
- The un recovered acephate probably was
trans located from the leaves or bound in un extractable form in the
- Acephate should be used at the bud and
pin stages on processing beans. Once pins are present on fresh market
snap beans and trap catches are
above 2 per night, a 7-10 day
schedule should be maintained for corn borer control.
- It is used for control of a wide range
of biting and sucking insects, especially aphids, including resistant
species, in fruit, vegetables vine, and hop cultivation and in
- It controls
parasites of cattle, goats, hogs, horses, poultry, and sheep, where
tolerances have been set for milk, eggs, fat, and meat.
- Acephate is used for
household use or golf course spray.
