1.      Manual or Battery Operated Sprayer-Manual sprayers are recommended for treating new infestations. Choose such backpack sprayer that allows an applicator to switch the handle for both right and left hand operation. A battery operated sprayer is more easy to use if you are treating large areas since it doesn’t require manually pumping to maintain pressure. It requires timely maintenance. Purchase sprayers at which are able to handle both low and high sprayer psi output and work for a minimum of 3 to 5 hours without recharging.

1.      Type of pump- If you are using dry-flowable or other dry herbicide formulations, the spray pump may wear out more quickly and need replacement. Most sprayers are available with either a piston or diaphragm pump. The piston type pump is less expensive than diaphragm pumps, but it is not suitable for all types of herbicides.
