    I am mostly a mowing company but I am licensed and insured to do applicating work. My question is how long can I expect a sprayer mixed with Momentum and Drive to last if I keep it in my enclosed trailer for spot spraying while we are on the lawns during their weekly mowings?

    I would just mix what you will use in a day or two. it does start to loose some of it effectiveness after its mixed.

    That is what I was thinking I was hoping I could get by for a week on one mixture.

    a week should not be a problem. Any more than that and your pushing it.

    I've left a mix like that in a tank and still had the effectiveness. I don't think you'll have any problem.

    A lot of things plat into how long a chemical will stay fresh without losing effectiveness. Cool and dark are the keys.
