Bonide Hose End Auto Mix is the easy way to apply fertilizer, fungicide, insecticide, or herbicide concentrates. No need to mix or measure and any leftover concentrate can be returned its original container. With three spray patterns and twelve settings it's perfect for any job whether you need a flat fan spray for the lawn, a straight stream for tall trees, or a gentle shower for tender plants the Bonide Hose End Auto Mix is a great tool.
I ordered the Bonide to take the place of the Chapin wet/dry whose measurements were in ml/as opposed to ounces. Since I am handling chemicals I wanted to be doubly sure of final mix. I prefer ounces/tsp/tbl since that is what I am used to. The sprayer also works great and cleans up easy. Great purchase
Does the suction tube in the Bonide Hose End Auto Mix reach the bottom of the jar and how many gallons of spray are produced per minute?
My old Ortho sprayer had a tube that stuck at the back of the jar, so material was left in when the jar was pointed down. I know it takes me 2 minutes to walk and spray over a 1000 sq. ft. of lawn. How much many gallons will I put down on the lawn.
Yes, the suction tube in the Bonide Hose End Auto Mix does reach the bottom of the container. The amount of gallons it will put out per minute will depend on your water pressure. It could be anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes to spray each gallon.
What is the spray setting for using Bifen IT and Bonide Hose End Auto Mix bottle?
In your response to Tom from Abiliene you stated to use the 1 oz per gallon setting for spraying Bifen IT for the yard. My old spray bottle said to mix 1 oz Bifen with water up to the 5 gallon mark and this would cover 1000 sq ft. So my question is is this the same amount, seems like I will be using more of the Bifen IT at this setting.
For general pest control the rate of Bifen IT to use is .5 to 1 oz per gallon of water as directed on the current product label.
