does your N7Z come w/ a sprayer or how is it applied?
N7C can be applied many ways. It’s non hazardous to people, pets and the environment so there is no danger when coming in direct contact with the concentrate. Even so, we always recommend using some RUBBER or SURGICAL GLOVES anytime you’re working with one of our products. If wearing gloves, you’d be able to apply the N7Z with a sponge or rag directly to the area you need to deodorize. Just mix it up in a bucket and apply it by hand if you have direct access to the area needing treatment.
If the area is large or inaccessible, consider either a PUMP SPRAYER or a good mister/fogger option like the BG2300 or the FOGMASTER 6309. If you don’t want to purchase the fogger, we have some for rental. Just give us a call on our toll free 1-800-877-7290 for further details.
Fogging or misting the N7Z is best suited when treating attics and spaces above living areas. This way it’s not likely any material will leak down through the ceiling which can happen when using a pump sprayer and some “puddling” occurs when spraying. Using a Pump Sprayer is well suited for lower level applications like crawl spaces and basements where the spray is likely to be absorbed and the problems associated with puddling won’t mean anything.
Lastly, if the odor is in a wall void, the FOAMING TOOL may be your best option and well worth the investment.

Jonathan – I am looking to order Baygon, Cypermethrin (4 oz of concentrate) and spreader sticker (8 oz) to treat for stinkbugs in the back exterior of my home and the interior entrance points. Which sprayer (item #) which would make the most sense to purchase to use the Cyper and the spreader sticker? Thanks, K.
The best sprayer for your need is really based on two things. First, how high you want to reach and second, how good of quality you’d like to have in a sprayer.
If your main need is to spray high on the exterior of your home, consider the TROMBONE or one of HOSE END SPRAYERS. These are specialized sprayers which can reach quite high but they are not so practical for regular monthly treatments where you may only be spraying 1-2 gallons of finished product. The Trombone is ideal for big jobs where a lot of product needs to be distributed over large areas. Hose end sprayers are similar but less efficient using more chemical and tend to waste more as well. Better suited for lawns, Hose End Sprayers should only be considered if you just need it to do the job and cost is a factor.
If you’d like a more “rounded” sprayer that will be better suited for a wide range of pest control treatments, the ELMINATOR is Ok and adequate for reaching 10 feet or a little higher. But keep in mind it’s a true “entry” level type sprayer and isn’t expected to last that long or provide the best of spraying experiences. A more refined, higher quality sprayer would be either the SOLO 1 GAL HD or the SOLO 2 GAL HD. These are very durable, strong and designed to last many years. The ROLL ABOUT 2 GALLON is the same sprayer but mounted on wheels.
Any of these and several more found at www.gotosprayer.com are more than adequate for the job you need done. Go to the site and if after further review you’re still confused, give us a call and we’ll be glad to assist. Our toll free is 1.800.877.7290.

If you can please advise or provide a quote would be great. Is there a Canadian supplier for your products? We have been using a B & G model 2400 but it doesn’t not have much life left.
I’m not sure about any local suppliers but I do know we carry a few options that would handle this job quite well. If you browse to our FOGGERS page, you’ll see the links for the models we carry in 240 volts. This list includes the FM 6309, the FM 6208, the FM 7807 and even the FM 5330 Mini Fogger.
Unfortunately these all vary so much in weight and packaging it would be a lot of work to get quotes considering all the options. If you can review the list I’ve posted and let me know which you think will work best, it would help narrow the field. We could then e-mail some quotes. Alternatively, we can call you at a good time or you can give us a call on either our toll free 1.800.877.7290 or 770.985.9392. At that time our reps will be able to work through the screens and get a shipping quote a lot faster. I do know we ship to Canada quite a bit via all the major carriers so getting one from us is entirely possible.
I have 2 questions:
1. I live in Sandy Springs. Could I pick up my order at your Lilburn location instead of having it delivered by mail?
2. You recommend 1/2 corks to plug up Carpenter Bee galleries. Is there a significant benefit to using corks over wood putty?
First, you can come by our store during regular business hours and pick up your order. Store hours and our location can be seen here:
Second, there is some benefit of using corks over putty. The main reasons are posted in here:
What is the fabric content on your bee suit? Is it breathable?
Our beesuits use a mix of cotton and polyester called VISA. This extremely durable material will last for many years. It also does a great job of keeping you cool by wicking away moisture from the inside out.
My stucco front porch alcove is 12 feet high and is filled with mud daubers. Do you have a hose type sprayer that will reach that high from the ground. For safety sake I don’t wish to spray from a ladder.
We have several options that should help. First, all our HOSE END SPRAYERS can spray 20 feet or more as long as you have sufficient water pressure. At my house, I’m able to spray almost 30 feet up with 3-4 of the models featured on the page above.
Additionally, we have several PUMP SPRAYERS that can spray 15-20 feet up so you have some options with this design as well.
Lastly, the TROMBONE SPRAYER is another good option and is very handy if you have trees and other vegetation that needs to be treated from time to time.
I am emailing to inquire about Item # 287414. The 25 gal electric sprayer: can additional hoses be purchased and attached? The sprayer comes with 15′ hose and we need it to be double or triple that length. Thanks.
We have added up to 50 feet of hose onto this unit in the past and it’s worked quite well so adding enough to have 30 or 45 feet will be fine. However, currently we don’t have any of the extra hose in stock so you’ll have to wait till next week for us to give you an exact quote. I think what we’ve done in the past is to change out the 15 feet to be either 25 or 50 and we would essentially be replacing the existing hose prior to shipment. The 15 foot section would still be part of the purchase and sent along; the 25 or 50 foot amount would be set up at our shop and purchased as a separate item but we do the configuring for you. When the sprayer arrives, it will be ready to go with the new hose installed.
If using Scotts hand held spreader for the Deltaguard Granules, should the setting be on #3?
The setting for your spreader should be found on the label of the DELTA GUARD GRANULES. You can see a copy of it here:
DELTA GUARD GRANULE LABEL
The bottom line is the setting is not as important as getting the right amount applied to the area you want treated. Delta Guard calls for 2-3 lbs per 1,000 square feet of turf. To get this, you’ll need to have the spreader set at the level that allows you to accomplish this based on how fast you move when the granules are sprinkled. I always like to start with a low setting and then mark off the area I know I need to cover with any given amount. I attempt to accomplish this with the low setting and then adjust as needed. If I find my normal pace of walking causes me to only apply half of what I need, I’ll turn the setting up a notch or two to let out more as I walk. Eventually I figure it out and you can do the same if you can’t find a good setting to start with. I don’t know the available options on your spreader but I do know that 2-3 lb’s per 1000 square feet is a medium amount so I would start somewhere between what would be considered a low to medium setting. This may not let out enough but remember, if this happens you can always go back and get it right. Alternatively, if you have the setting too wide open and apply too much, you’ll end up getting it all where it doesn’t need to be and there is no way to pick up what you put out again so it will have been wasted. In other words, it’s better to start with less being applied and adjust up. Good luck!!
You have a very informative website and thanks for all the work. I have a real pine beetle problem and it looks like I need to buy a bunch of the Cypermethin to combat it. May I please ask for your recommendation on the sprayer I need? I am spraying 30 and 40 feet up so I need something that can spray a long distance if possible.
Please let me know what you would recommend and I will order it from you on the website. Also I have 100s of trees to spray so if you can help me with how much Cypermethin to buy I would appreciate it as well.
Thanks for your help and I look forward to your response.
Have a great day.
If you are spraying early enough in the season, you won’t need to get too high to have a positive impact. Pine Beetles forage up the trunks of trees when the season first starts so in theory, they should be controlled when crawling over treated surfaces of the trees which you hopefully will have done before they start this migration.
That being said, most any of our PUMP SPRAYERS should do the job. For extra distance, you can outfit our 1 GALLON SOLO HD PUMP SPRAYER or 2 GALLON SOLO HD PUMP SPRAYER with a VALVE CAP instead of the stock pressure relief valve. The valve cap in place will allow you to pump up the sprayer with more pressure than normal thus enabling you to reach higher when spraying. Another option is to go with our TROMBONE SPRAYER which can reach extra high as well.
If you still have questions, please give us a call toll free at 1.800.877.7290 and we should be able to further assist on the phone.
I am looking for a sprayer to use in applying fruit eliminator (e.g. Florel) to a sweet gum tree. I think the tree is about 30 feet high and the hose end sprayers I have don’t seem to have one that can reach. What do you have in your product line that might do this job better?
We get this question quite often. The best option is our Trombone Sprayer which works off mechanical energy. View the video on the Trombone Sprayer page and you’ll see how it works and how high it can spray. The second option is to get our Solo 1 Gallon HD or Solo 2 Gallon HD and do some “tinkering”. We can’t “recommend” doing this (in case you damage something) but it will enable you to get more pressure into either sprayer for special situations where you need to reach extra high. Each of these sprayers has a pressure relief valve on the top of the tank (opposite the hose connection) which acts as a “pressure governor”. This governor will only allow a certain amount of pressure to build up in the tank when you pump it up. By replacing this valve with a valve cap, you can manually pump up the sprayer more than normal. This increase of pressure will enable you to reach higher when spraying. I have been able to get the pressure high enough to reach over 30 feet but it does require a lot of force to pump to get it this pressurized. I’m guessing if you used the sprayer like this all the time it would lead to a faster breakdown of some gaskets but I haven’t seen any real impact on mine after doing this a few times. The other concern I have is that when pumping with the handle you must take care not to damage the pump by pushing too hard on an angle. Be sure to direct the force straight down so the pump rod doesn’t bend or break. But since you really only need 60-80 lbs of pressure to get it to spray over 30 feet up, there shouldn’t be any problems if you do the pumping with the sprayer on a flat surface and restricting it tightly so it can’t shift around. The tank is rated for over 200 lbs of pressure so you can’t manually explode it when pumping it with your arms. For now, these are our two options.
I want to do some fogging on my property for mosquitoes and I’ve heard a hot thermal fogger is the way to go. I’ve got about 1/2 acre to treat. I’ve looked at some models but they all seem very expensive. Do I really need to use a thermal fogger to get good control?
Definitely not. Thermal foggers do offer some advantages over cold, misting type fogging machines but this advantage usually won’t pay for itself unless you were treating a large area. Since thermal foggers can treat large areas rapidly and more effiiciently than a cold fogger, they’re better suited when treatments will be done to areas which are in excess of any acre. For 1/2 acre, you’ll be able to get fine results with the B&G 2300 or the Fogmaster 6208. Though “cold”, they produce a fine mist which is more than adequate for most applications. And yes, you’ll use a little more chemical when treating with either of these but the difference is nominal at this scale.
I have a slab I want to treat for a bad springtail infestation and I’m thinking using foam might help. The solo 2 gallon foamer looks like it will create a nice thick foam. Is this what you would recommend?
Springtail control can be tough – especially when they get up under a slab. The bottom line is that springtails migrate in such tremendous numbers they can be almost impossible to stop unless you get them where they’re nesting. Many times this is in the soil which is easy to treat. But if they start nesting under a slab, it can be extra tough. For such situations, we always recommend foaming. This insures the treatment will reach the bottom side of the slab which is where they like to roost. And be sure to treat more than just the side that touches the house. Since they are most likely living under the entire slab, if you don’t treat the whole area you’ll keep having them emerge through the treated soil because you haven’t successfully killed them all yet.
I have successfully used the Solo 2 gallon sprayer for about 7 years; however, the nozzle doesn’t spray any longer. It only drips; there isn’t a mist. I have removed the brass nozzle and filter in an attempt to clean them, but with no success. Do you have any other suggestions?
First, try without the filter to see if it will spray. If yes, then that means the filter is clogged. At that point, try soaking the filter overnight to see if it unclogs. Fine debris can easily clog it and sometimes you won’t see it. If it won’t spray when the filter is removed, it could be the ball and spring. At that point, we usually replace the nozzle.
I’m looking at the Hudson Eliminator pump sprayer to use inside my house. Problem is that sprayers I’ve had in the past pump out too much chemical too fast. I want one that will be less powerful and not make a mess. Will this do what I want?
Most pump sprayers will pump faster and with more pressure if they’re pumped up too much. As a general rule, it’s always best to guage how much to pump your sprayer based on where you’ll be spraying. If you need to reach up high, say on the outside of a building, clearly more pumping will be required. If you plan on spraying inside the home, a low volume low pressure spray is generally best suited for such treatments. The Hudson Eliminator is a good starter or basic sprayer. It won’t last a lifetime but you should be able to do most any pest control spraying in and around the home with this pump sprayer. And we always suggest you first fill it with water only and practice using it so you can get a feel for how much “pumping” you’ll need to do for the areas you wish to treat.
