    Q
    Can you use Armada with a hose end sprayer?
    Can you put this on the yard with a water hose sprayer -- the kind that attaches to a hose and mixes with water as it sprays?
    A

    No. Armada is a water dispersable granule that must be mixed in water in a pump sprayer, then be agitated, and continue to be agitated while being sprayed. This type of formulation is not made to be used with a hose end sprayer.

    Q
    I have a 2 gallon tank sprayer. Is this enough water to mix a 3 oz packet?
    Directions of Armada WP indicate that one 3 oz packet treats 5000 sq ft of lawn but the mix rate is 1 to 2 gallons of water per 1000 sq ft. Assuming that I should not cut open the water soluble packet, I would need a larger (10 gallon) sprayer?
    A

    It depends on the type of disease you are controlling.  The label actually states for most diseases that you apply .6 oz of Armada per 1000 square feet.  If you mix 3 oz in 2 gallons of water, then that 3 oz mixture should be applied over 5000 square feet, which works out to be about a quart and a half per 1000 square feet.  After application, you can water in the product into the lawn to help it move into the thatch layer.  This would be the equivalent of spraying 5000 square feet with 10 gallons of water.

    Q
    Are there any restrictions in the use of Armada 50 WDG around animals (dog)?
    A

    Armada 50 WDG is safe to use around pets and children but just like any other product on our website, we recommend keeping pets and children away while you are applying the product.  Once the product has dried, which usually only takes 45 minutes to an hour, it is perfectly safe to allow pets and children back on the lawn.

    Q
    I have fungus issues but I can not clearly identify. I have heard Armada 50 is a pretty good broad spectrum?
    A

    Armada 50 WDG is a a great broad spectrum fungicide. With that being said broad spectrum does not mean that it will eliminate all types of fungus, it will only help with those diseases that are listed on the product label. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff. The master gardener can usually help you identify the disease and also recommend the best product for your needs.

    Q
    The Armada 50 WDG Fungicide didn't come in packets but was just full of product in the container. I added 4 oz to 2.5 gallons of water and treated about 5200 sq ft. Did I not add enough Armada 50 WDG Fungicide?
    A

    We apologize for any confusion, the old packaging of Armada WDG was actually packets and in a wettable powder formulation  It depends on the type of disease you are controlling.  The label actually states for most diseases that you apply .6 to 1.5 oz of Armada per 1000 square feet. After application, you can water in the product into the lawn to help it move into the thatch layer.

    Q
    How to I treat an Autumn Blaze Maple with Armada as a slurry that is poured into the soil. How do I mix?
    My Autumn Blaze Maple was treated once with Armada this year. Apparently is was supposed to be treated again. It now has anthracnose and I need to have it sprayed or treat the ground systemically. The arborist who treated it dropped off the remainder of the product. It is 50 WDG.
    A

    Armada 50 WDG Fungicide would only be applied as a foliar application for anthracnose on ornamental trees as directed on the product label.  We cannot advice or comment on any other application that is off label and/or recommended/done by a third party.

    Interiorscape, Commercial and Residential Landscape Applications Foliar Diseases: ARMADA 50 WDG will control foliar diseases of ornamental plants when applied as a foliar spray to the plant species listed on this label. Apply 3 to 9 oz ARMADA 50 WDG per 100 gallons of spray solution. Apply as a full-coverage spray to the point of drip and repeat at 14 to 28 day intervals until the threat of disease is over. Begin applications when conditions are favorable for disease development and continue until the threat of disease is over. Use higher rates or shorter intervals under high disease pressure.

    The breakdown per gallon for the rate above is approx 0.03 oz to 0.09 oz per gallon.

    Q
    I have fairy ring and dollar spot. Should I spot treat those areas or spray the whole yard with Armada 50 WDG?
    A
    You want to treat the entire lawn since there may be spores present in areas where you have not yet seen damage. Per the product label, for fairy ring, use 1.2-1.5 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft and apply at 14-28 day intervals. Use at least 2 gallons of water per 1,000 sq. ft. and water in the application with 1/8 to 1/4 inch of irrigation within 6-8 hours of application. For dollar spot, use 0.6 to 1.5 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. and apply at 14-28 day intervals.

    Q
    Can Armada fungicide be used advanced powdery mildew on a apple tree?
    Oil sprays with added copper have been ineffective. (Gravensteins are apparently more prone to powdery mildew than other varities.)

    Armada is labeled for powdery mildew and it is labeled for use on Apple Trees.  However it is labeled for use on non-bearing apple trees so it cannot be used if you are harvesting.
