Acelepryn is an insecticide containing the active substance, chlorantraniliprole. It can be used to control chafer grubs and leatherjackets in amenity grassland and managed amenity turf at a rate of 0.6 l/ha once per year.
Chafer grubs and leatherjackets are major pests of turf surfaces as they create primary damage to the grass plants by feeding on roots causing the plant to yellow, weaken and fail. Secondary damage can also occur as birds and mammals start to peck and dig up the turf surface in search of a food source. Acelepryn can be used against these damaging pests and, when applied prior to egg hatch, is ideal for controlling the insects at an early development stage and before serious damage can occur.
Acelepryn can be used on a wide range of turf surfaces, including on lawns, on airfields and in a variety of sports turf settings.
- Can be used to control leatherjackets and chafer grubs in garden lawns
- Effective control of damaging insect pests in turf
- Can be used as part of an integrated turf management strategy
- Controls young grubs and larvae to reduce damage in the current year
Instructions for use
Where to use
Acelepryn can be used on amenity grassland and managed amenity turf surfaces:
- Amenity grassland*: Areas of semi-natural or planted grassland subject to minimal or non-intensive management such as parkland and airfields
- Managed amenity turf*: Areas of frequently mown, intensively managed turf such as lawns and all types of sports turf
*The total surface area treated must not exceed 10% in any given situation with the exception of lawns.
When to use
Acelepryn should be applied prior to egg hatch, when the adult chafer beetles or cranefly numbers are at their peak. Monitoring of adult numbers should be undertaken to determine the most effective application timing for the pest species that are present on any individual site.
