WHY HOSE END SPRAYERS ARE IDEAL FOR OUTSIDE APPLICATIONS ^
In general, we always recommend using a Hose End Sprayer to apply any of our insecticides, herbicides or fungicides around your home. There are a few reasons for this.
First, HOSE END SPRAYERS ARE SUPER EASY TO USE! Just add the chemical, some water, hook them to your hose and let the water pressure do the work. So there are no moving parts, nothing to break and no physical effort required to power the sprayer. It just doesn’t get any easier.
Second, ALL OUTSIDE APPLICATIONS REQUIRE A LOT OF WATER. Regular pump sprayers or back pack sprayers will never be able to deliver the right amount of water needed to get your application properly distributed over the plants foliage and more importantly, into the ground where it can do its job.
Third, WATER IS ESSENTIAL FOR ANY APPLICATION TO WORK. Without water, you’d never be able to deliver the chemical. So think of all that water as the “messenger” and the message its delivering? The chemical you’re applying.
All that said and done, there are some rules to follow when picking what sprayer is best for your task and our videos below compare a few.
But first, watch this short video (less than 60 seconds) which details how a hose end sprayer works and why its an essential tool for outside treatments.
NOW LETS COMPARE THE BEST HOSE END SPRAYERS ^
20 GALLON HOSE END SPRAYERS ^
SPRAYER DESCRIPTION: We carry many hose end sprayers but our most popular are the 20 GALLON models. The 6 GALLON is a close third choice.
The following short video (less than 1 minute) covers the basic difference between the two 20 gallon hose end sprayers we carry.
YELLOW HOSE END SPRAYER ^
The Yellow 20 Gallon Model features a spinning “hose connector” so it easily connects to your garden hose. It also “spins” 360 degrees on the sprayers lid making it very easy to maneuver throughout the yard when spraying. This can be seen in the video above.
However, this sprayer can ONLY SPRAY A LIMITED DISTANCE as it deflects the spray into a wide pattern. This pattern is ideal for spraying the lawn, garden and the side of your home up to around 10-15 feet. But if you need to spray high locations, get the GREEN HOSE END SPRAYER (seen below) because its tip can come off and it can reach up as far as your water pressure can normally spray. For many homes, this will be 25+ feet.
IF YOU NEED TO SPRAY HIGH, GET THE GREEN HOSE END ^
As detailed in the video above, this sprayer will work just like the yellow one above BUT without its tip deflector connected, it can reach heights of 25 feet or more. This makes is ideal for treating trees, soffits, overhangs and rain gutters where wasps, carpenter bees, stinkbugs and other invasive pests typically use to invade.
20 GALLON HOSE END ^
6 GALLON HOSE END IDEAL FOR FOUNDATION AND HOME SIDING SPRAYING ^
The 6 Gallon Hose End below works exactly like the 20 Gallon Green sprayer but only requires 6 gallons of water to empty its contents. This makes it ideally suited for most all foundation spraying and home siding applications when reaching high locations is required.
