    I have a 4 gallon back pack sprayer. Would I need to mix it in a different container before putting it in the backpack sprayer to keep from clogging up my sprayer? How often should I have to spray this product on my lawn? I have St. Augustine Floratam grass. And is this the best product to use in a backpack sprayer? Thanks.
