NON-BEARING CITRUS (INCLUDING CITRUS NURSERY SEEDLINGS) - FIRE ANTS AND HARVESTER ANTS
TENKOZ ACEPHATE 97 is an insecticide for control of pests on selected agricultural crops and in certain non-crop areas. The active ingredient in TENKOZ ACEPHATE 97 is acephate, a water-soluble insecticide readily absorbed by plant roots and foliage to give systemic control of feeding insects. Insect pests are generally controlled more effectively by TENKOZ ACEPHATE 97 through ingestion than by contact. To maintain control repeat application of TENKOZ ACEPHATE 97 as directed.

Mix 3/4 oz. in 5 gallons of water. Apply 1 gallon of mix to each mound area by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat a four (4) foot diameter circle around the mound.
Applications made under prolonged dry and hot conditions may be ineffective due to the location of the ants deep within the nest.
Apply in 100 to 200 gallons of water per acre. Spray individual juvenile or nonbearing trees for coverage with total application not to exceed specified rate in lbs. per acre. Length of residual activity will depend upon spray coverage and the amount of moisture following application.
