You can use just about any hand spreader a long as it can be calibrated for the usage rate you will require. The easiest way to determine the correct setting for your needs is outlined below:
If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft you would add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft). If you have product left, your setting is too low. If you run out of product, your setting is too high.
Please refer to the Talstar PL product label to determine the correct usage rate for your specific needs.
