- Acephate is a chemical compound that belongs to the class of organophosphate insecticides. It is used to control a variety of insect pests in agriculture, horticulture, and forestry. The active ingredient in acephate works by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which is necessary for proper nerve function in insects. This causes a buildup of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, which leads to overstimulation of the nervous system, paralysis, and eventual death of the insect.
- Acephate is available in various formulations such as soluble powder, liquid concentrate, and granular formulations. It is often applied to crops as a spray, dust, or soil treatment, and is effective against a wide range of pests including aphids, caterpillars, thrips, whiteflies, and beetles. However, it is important to use acephate with caution and follow label instructions carefully, as it can also be toxic to non-target organisms, including humans and animals.
