Tips to Picking the Right Pest Control Sprayer

Basic chemistry tells us that metals react differently to various chemicals, so when choosing a pest control sprayer you must consider the type of chemical you will be spraying. Brass, stainless steel and polyethylene fittings and adapters have a high resistance to most chemicals. Components made from these materials are preferred on sprayers handling chemical solutions.

We’ve talked to thousands of pest control technicians over the years and have built many custom sprayers designed with pest control in mind. One of the top requests we get is “I need a sprayer that is easy to clean”.  Spray applicators in the pest control industry come into daily contact with toxic and hazardous chemicals. Therefore, spray equipment that is easy to clean inside and out is a must! The Kings Sprayers highlighted above can be easily cleaned, and all parts and components are freely accessed. It's important to remember that spray applicators should wear personal protective equipment (PPE)  during the application of chemicals and afterwards while cleaning out the sprayer.

Another important thing to consider is the type of frame on your sprayer. Kings Sprayers feature a 6061 aircraft grade aluminum frame which is chemical resistant, lightweight and will never rust or need painting. In addition, the frame base is raised, which allows a spray technician to use a hose to wash under and around the sprayer.

Don’t Forget the Pressure Gauge

Make sure your sprayer is equipped with a properly functioning pressure gauge. Sprayer pressure affects the amount of insecticide applied and the type of pesticide coverage. Too much or too little pressure can cause uneven coverage and result in ineffective pest control. The pressure gauge allows the spray applicator to control and monitor the pressure in the tank at all times.

While excessive pressure is seldom required in a pest control sprayer, it's important to note that operating the sprayer with continual excessive pressure can cause premature wear-and-tear on the sprayer.

Have different requirements? No problem! We can customize any sprayer to meet your needs so just give us a call and we'll be happy to help. Plus, many of our most popular models are available for same-day shipping! Call 800-228-0905 or visit our website and click "Live Support" to chat live.
