Determine the size of the spraying job. For lawns, measure the area to be sprayed. For trees, shrubs and flowers, apply as a thorough cover spray. Begin treating when insects first appear. Applications should be repeated only as directed to maintain control. Apply as directed. Remember, thorough coverage is important. Be sure to follow the important use limitations for the specific vegetable you are treating, including the amount of spray that can be applied, the interval between treatments and the days to wait before harvest.

USING THE READY SPRAY NOZZLE

  1. Shake container well before using.
  2. Connect a garden hose to the Ready Spray nozzle. Make sure the dial on the nozzle is in the “OFF” position with the safety tab in the valve notch.
  3.  Turn on water at faucet. Extend hose to the farthest area to be treated and work back toward the faucet so you don't come in contact with the treated area.
  4. To BEGIN spraying, point nozzle toward treatment site and a.) bend the safety tab back (located at right of dial) with your thumb and b.) hold while turning dial clockwise until it stops. Water will automatically mix with the product.
  5. Spray until wet to control insects. Walk at a steady pace while spraying using an even sweeping motion, slightly overlapping treated areas.
  6. To STOP spraying, QUICKLY turn the dial counterclockwise until it stops and the safety tab engages into the notch on the valve. Turn water off at faucet. To relieve pressure before removing nozzle from hose, bend the safety tab back and turn dial “ON” until water stops spraying.
  7. To STORE unused product, make sure the dial is in the “OFF” position with safety tab in the valve notch. Place in cool area away from heat, sunlight or open flame.
NOTE: This product is non-staining to most home siding depending on age and cleanliness. However, before using in areas where the spray may contact home siding (vinyl siding in particular), test in an inconspicuous area and recheck in a few hours. Do not use if any staining is observed.
