    Listen to Riggle, backpack blower/sprayers are the bomb and super fast, they will also stretch the product you are using
    Stihl makes one that is very popular

    They typically have a 3 gallon tank that will treat close to 10,000 sq ft

    almost as fast as you can walk you can apply

    I told someone about this in Chicago and they told me blowers were against the law but they use them anyway and get a couple tickets a year

    we just got a blower, a stihl and are going to try some things out to determine our app schedule, technique etc before offering it as a service, and you think that is the best way to apply insect control to lawns and shrubs for both flea and tick, and mosquitos?
    or just the trees, shrubs and and not the lawn. use a zpray for the lawn and do the bushes with a blower?
