Seven Easy Steps to Winterize Your Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Nov 28, 2017

Winter will be here soon, and for much of the country, that means snow, ice, and freezing temperatures.Kings-Sprayers-200-Gallon-Trailor-Sprayerjpg.jpg Before the severe weather arrives, it's essential to ensure that your equipment is ready. One task that is vital and easily overlooked is the winterization of your sprayer before you put it away for the season. Winterizing your sprayer, like any regular preventative maintenance, will protect your investment and make certain that your sprayer is ready for the next spray season. Protecting your sprayer from freezing temperatures will make it last longer and is a quick and simple process, completed in just a few steps.

1) Flush the System With Clean Water

Thoroughly flushing your sprayer with clean water will remove any residual chemicals and eliminate any buildup. Even a small amount of residue can become sticky or harden, damaging the inner workings of your sprayer.

2) Drain the Tank

Open all the valves on your sprayer and blow compressed air through the system to ensure that the entire system is clear of any liquid.

3) Briefly Run the Pump

After clearing your system with compressed air, run the pump just long enough to ensure that no water remains behind.

4) Use Antifreeze

Dilute antifreeze with water or windshield washer fluid to create a 50/50 mix and run it through the sprayer long enough for it to reach all hoses, booms, and components.

5) Store Removable Parts

Remove and store parts, such as guns, nozzle tips, and strainers, in a clean, dry location.

6) Cover Openings

Cover any openings on your sprayer to prevent foreign objects, such as dirt or insects, from entering your equipment.

7) Wear Protective Gear

Personal protective equipment is a must when working around any pesticide, herbicide or other chemicals and the winterization process is no different. Protect yourself by limiting the amount of exposed skin with a long sleeve shirt, pants, and gloves. Wear a respirator or mask and remember to always protect your eyes.

6 Things All Pest Control Operators Want in a Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Aug 15, 2017

As a professional pest control applicatorthe single most important tool for the trade is most likely your sprayer but as you probably know, all sprayers are not the same. 50-Gallon-Skid-Sprayer.jpgNo matter what the application though, the primary goal of a sprayer is to provide an even and controlled application of the pesticide. To that aim, we've compiled a list of the six features that all pest control operators want in a sprayer.

1) Pump Specifications

Features such as flow rate, pressure, and whether the 9910-D30GRGI-actual2-3.jpgpump operates on gas or electric power are the types of specifications which will differ depending on the intended application, the type of pesticide used, and the amount of coverage desired. For instance, the Hypro D30GRGI pump used with the   JD9-C spray gun delivers a particularly strong flow rate at a high pressure, allowing the operator to reach heights of up to 40 feet, which is ideal for reaching the pesky wasp nests that are often found in roof eaves. 

2) Spray Distance

With pin stream or misting spray guns, extended spray distances are possible whether pesticide is applied  in vertical or horizontal directions. Again, this type of application is excellent for targeting wasp nests in roof eaves, even on taller multiple storied homes. 

3) Durability

When considering the durability of a sprayer, one of the most important components to consider is the frame. At Sprayer Depot, we carry the complete line of Kings Sprayers, built with 6061 aircraft grade aluminum frames which are lightweight, chemical resistant and will never rust or need painting.

4) Add-On Options

Another feature that is important to consider is the available add-on options. Most sprayers l have several additional add-on components available such as different length hoses, hose reels and booms. Having add-ons to use with your sprayer may give you a range of slightly different uses or allow various other types of applications. 

5) Warranty

As with any tool of your trade, having a warranty gives you peace of mind in the unlikely event that your sprayer has a malfunction. Not all sprayers have warranties, however there are some like Kings Sprayers that come with a very generous warranty. King Sprayers offers a 5 year frame / 5 year tank / 1 year parts and labor (limited to manufacturer defects) warranty. 

6) Quality

Lastly, probably the most important thing that pest control operators look for in sprayers is quality.  The question of quality boils down to the type of components including frame, pump, tank, and spray hose. The manufacturer of the sprayer is also a mark of quality. Sprayers made by Kings Sprayers are built from the ground up in Orlando, FL which is one of the reasons why Kings is a leader in the industry. 

When it comes time to make your sprayer purchase, be sure to give some thought to these six features. At Sprayer Depot, we understand your need for high quality and consumer tested and verified sprayers, and want to help you select the right sprayer for your needs. If you have any questions or need some recommendations, contact one of our knowledgeable customer service technicians today!

What You'll Need to Combat Gypsy Moths This Season

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Fri, Apr 07, 2017

With the return of spring comes the return of some of our favorite things: sunshine, daffodils, warm breezes, and blue skies. Unfortunately for the North East, it can also mean the return of the dreaded gypsy moth. Gypsy-Moth.jpgAccording to the Boston Globe, “environmental officials are predicting widespread defoliation from gypsy moths again in 2017…[and] forest health specialists are advising people to hire certified arborists or someone licensed to apply… pesticides to bring the population back down to manageable levels.”

About Gypsy Moths

It is one of the most damaging pests because it has the ability to defoliate over a million acres of trees in a single year. Gypsy moths get their name from their ability to stow away on moving objects; dispersal occurs when people transport gypsy moth eggs thousands of miles from infested areas on cars, firewood, household goods, and other personal possessions. They are also often transported on shipments of nursery stock.

It’s the caterpillars that are particularly problematic to homeowners because only the caterpillar stage of the gypsy moth feeds. The caterpillars feed on more than 500 tree species but especially like oak and other hardwoods. They eat the leaves, and can completely strip trees of greenery. This causes the trees to become more vulnerable to damage. These damages then will potentially cause death to the tree if they're harmed repeatedly over a few years.

Fighting Gypsy Moths With the Right Spray Equipment

What do you do if you find these troublesome caterpillars? Pesticides may be the most effective method of reducing the number of larvae and protecting the foliage of trees. However, managing the gypsy moth can be a difficult task if you don’t have the correct equipment because they tend to prefer trees that are taller than the typical pesticide sprayer can handle, with larva usually emerging in trees that are 45-90 feet tall.

The type of equipment needed for this range of tree height are the larger skid and trailer sprayers. For the tallest trees on the property you will need a large capacity Sprayer-for-Gypsy-Moths.jpgsprayer with a long-range. The Kings Sprayer 735 Gallon Skid Sprayer can handle spraying 75-80' in the air. It's great for tree-spraying and can be used in truck beds, utility vehicles, boats and trailers. A slightly more compact option would be a tow-behind two-wheeled sprayer like this one, but its compact size decreases its spray capacity and will only reach tree heights of about 65’. 

For smaller trees applying a pesticide using a smaller two-wheeled Kings-Sprayers-200-Gallon-Trailor-Sprayerjpg.jpgsprayer like this 200 Gallon 2-Wheel Sprayer is your best bet. This sprayer can be easily towed behind a utility vehicle and can reach trees with heights in the range of 45’-50’.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service has more information available about the impending descent of the gypsy moth upon our yards and trees, here.

Shhhh... 3 Big Reasons Why You Need an Electric Sprayer

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Tue, Apr 04, 2017

As spring arrives, so do those phone calls from potential clients. If you are receiving a lot of work from clients who live in communities with noise ordinances or Home Owner Associations (HOAs), Kings-Sprayers-Electric-Sprayer.jpgor you simply want to be more considerate to those who live around your job site, you should consider adding an electric sprayer to your inventory. These sprayers are significantly more quiet than many other models and will allow you to get the job done efficiently while being respectful to the neighborhood... at any time of day. Plus, you'll be able to promote this option to potential clients, making you stand out from the competition.


Electric sprayers also offer a few other added benefits:

Electric sprayers allow for a more eco-friendly company. In today’s world where clients are Kings-Sprayers-4-Wheel-Electric-Sprayer.jpgbecoming more and more concerned about environmental issues, it is important to present your company with as “green” an image as possible. Since these sprayers don’t use gasoline they are cleaner than a gas guzzling engine.  


Additionally, they often have a lower cost than many gas-powered sprayers. You can get commercial-grade quality, but still save some money if you’re looking for something that can be used in truck beds, utility vehicles, boats and trailers. A 50 gallon skid sprayer offers an economical price but doesn’t lack in efficiency.  


Similarly, electric sprayers generally take up less space in the vehicle. Kings-Sprayers-100-Gallon-Electric.jpgThe electric pump & motor is usually smaller than a gas operated sprayer which will allow you to use a smaller vehicle for transport. This 100-gallon model is only 38 inches wide which will leave more space in your truck bed for other equipment.  


Silence is golden. If neighborhood of golf course work draws your business this season electric engines will be your best bet as they make almost no noise as opposed to gas-powered sprayers. This can allow you operator to operate earlier in the day without disturbing clients and neighbors or ruining someone’s perfect golf swing. You’d want a model that can be pulled behind a utility vehicle for golf course use, which also has an electric motor to reduce disruptions.
