    been reading and seems these have been used in the orchard/greenhouse industries. do these have a place in our industry? say if you spray tree/shrub, or if you do perimeter pest control, can you use the dusting feature? do any of you use them now, or have you in the past. i know their alot of money, but can you realy save time/money/enviroment?

    are you refering to misters/foggers? I'm not a big fan of these for outdoor use, unless they are used inside a greenhouse. I watched a guy (i don't know if he was licensed or not) create a cloud that drifted across "his" neighbor's house- who did not appear to be home. I have always felt that there was too much potential of drift covering something/someone that shouldn't be covered- at least in residential settings.
