Sprayer Tutorial

Sprayers are the most common pesticide application equipment. They are standard equipment for nearly every pesticide applicator and are used in every type of pest control operation. Sprayers range in size and complexity from simple, hand-held models to intricate machines weighing several tons.

Ultra-low Volume (ULV) Sprayers

These are sprayers that use special pesticide concentrates. ULV sprayers may be hand-held or mounted on either ground equipment or aircraft.

Limitations:

  • drift hazards,
  • coverage may not be thorough,
  • high concentrates present safety hazards,
  • use of concentrated pesticides may increase chance of dosage errors,
  • few pesticides are labeled for ULV.
