CRAPE MYRTLE - APHIDS
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.
