Summer spraying

The season is well developed. Higher temperatures tempt us to spend more time outdoors in our gardens. Apparently, everything looks very fine, but the nature grows equally: apart from thick greenery, the yearly adventure begins also for various sorts of insects. We are unlucky that many of them are dangerous to our plants.

We can be absolutely sure that every garden has a pest of some sort! It's natural as they are part of the nature. The problem arises when their population proliferates excessively, and that happens when the conditions are optimal for their growth. Add to that plants weakened by draught or overwatering, and we have a catastrophe! When you observe your plants carefully and regularly, there is a chance for intervention with chemical agents. However, it often happens that we see the problem when there is nothing left for spraying anymore ;) That's why you should watch carefully and care for your gardens.

Plants living in the right places, having company that they like, properly watered, cut and fed (fertilised), can handle nearly all infections, and they are not that susceptible to pests.

Your actions can be preventive fertilising, or you can combat an existing danger, in any case bear in mind that most likely you handle chemical agents that are harmful to people. This applies to fertilisers and all kinds of plant protection agents. You must remember to use protective clothesgloves and glasses. With even short gust of wind, fertiliser or spray can get into eyes uncontrollably. There's nothing worth the risk, so appropriate clothing at such type of works is necessary.

When you get "fashionable" enough, choose the equipment for your needs. Most sprayers with 2 litre container will do great to work with home flowers, balconies or even small terrace. It's good to have a container used only for chemical agents and a container that allow for pressurising in spite of small size. With greater terraces or single plants in a garden, small container is not enough. You need  equipment of at least 5 litres capacity. Notice length of the nozzle and hose (so hard to reach areas wouldn't be that hard anymore) and whether the container offers a strap to hang on back or shoulder. Operating such apparently small weight for a long time can become a nuisance, when you have to hold everything in one hand (the other holds the nozzle).

With this container size, optimal working pressure is approximately 2.3–2.5 bars. Make sure to set the spray leaving the nozzle as wide as possible, and that the container is equipped with a safety valve. A true challenge appears when you're about to spray great bushes or trees. Standard container will not be enough. Backpack sprayer is the best choice in such situation. Long nozzle and significantly greater pressure (approximately 3.5 bars, which can elevate water column up to 30 m height) allow to spray thoroughly even big plants. Capacity of such containers is approximately 20 l or more. So make sure that it is comfortable to put on, and the "backpack" itself fits your body well and does not restrict moves at full load.
