Choosing a Sprayer

Sprayers are used to apply pesticides and other chemicals to the lawn or garden. There are pump sprayers and others that attach to the end of a garden hose, as well as wipe-on applicators. When purchasing a sprayer, read the label carefully, as it will indicate what purpose the sprayer should be used for. Be sure to keep separate sprayers for different chemicals, such as fertililizers versus herbicides.
