How many teaspoons or ounces of Cynoff WP should I put into the 16 ounce bottle?

I will be using my Gilmour, 16 ounce capacity bottle, garden hose attached hand held sprayer. How many teaspoons or ounces of Cynoff WP should I put into the 16 ounce bottle?


I believe the Gilmour hose end sprayers have a dial that measure teaspoons of product per gallon of water.  One scoop form the Cynoff WP scooper that come with the container is equivalent to 2 teaspoons.  For most insect control with Cynoff WP, you should mix 2 teaspoons to each gallon of water.  Also, the cynoff WP label says to use one gallon of mixed solution over 400 square feet . Let's say you wanted to spray Cynoff WP over a 1200 square foot area.  This would require 3 gallons of solution, each gallon covering 400 square feet.  Each gallon would require 2 teaspoons of Cynoff WP to mix with the water.  So you should fill your Gilmour hose end sprayer with 3 spoonfuls from the scooper in the Cynoff WP, but set the hose end sprayer on the 2 teaspoon setting per gallon of water, which is probably just turning the dial to the number 2.  You should apply 3 gallons of water through the hose end sprayer, mixing 2 teaspoons at a time over 1200 square feet .  Hope this makes sense.  Hose end sprayers are confusing but can cover a much larger area than hand pump sprayers.  Please feel free to call us if you need any further clarification at 866-581-7378.
