|Expert Overview:||Acephate (and the name brand Orthene) have been used for decades. It was one of the first "systemic" products that gets inside the plant and kills insects that such the plant juices. It is still popular with Orchid growers. However, the odor can be offensive and there are now newer systemic products like Dominion 2L that have no odor and a longer residual.|
