Hose End Sprayers


I don’t often recommend hose end sprayers. They do the mixing for you, are inconsistent, often clog up and have a tendency to fall apart. They are okay for spraying microbe products, but not for fertilizers where the concentration and coverage are important.

Q:  Can nematodes be put out with a "hose-end" sprayer?  B.J., Cedar Hill.

A:  Yes, just remove the strainer if present so clogging won’t occur. Use the nematodes to control fleas, grubs, fire ants, termites, thrips and other pests.
