The Bug Blaster nozzle is cleverly designed to create a powerful 360° flat spray of water that kills soft-bodied pests on contact. The slender shape of the wand allows you to insert the Bug Blaster into, under and around the center of the plants so that the water hits every surface of the foliage. This blast of high pressure water will not harm your plants, but is strong enough to fatally traumatize insects like aphids, mealybugs, whiteflies and spider mites. This water blast does not discriminate; it will take out whatever it hits. Which means that a vulnerable insect population, from eggs to adults, can be wiped out with one application. A few follow-up applications and your plants will be back to their pre-bug health.
Benefits of the Bug Blaster:
- It will not harm most beneficials, as they are strong and large enough to withstand the spray.
- It actually uses up to 60% less water than a standard spray gun and any excess water drips directly down to water the plants.
- Bugs may return (as is possible with any insect control), but cleaner and healthier plants are less susceptible.
You can also use your Bug Blaster to keep your plants clean. Sooty mold, spider webs, dust, dirt and old or unhealthy leaves (which inhibit photosynthesis) will come right off with a few blasts. Your plants will thank you with healthy new growth.
Suggested Uses: Use to kill and remove soft bodied insects from plants and to clean plants of dust, dirt, spider webs, sooty mold and old/unhealthy leaves.
NOTE: Bug Blasters will be one of four randomly picked colors (purple, green, blue or orange). We are unable to fulfill specific color requests.
This Product Controls These Pests or Diseases: Aphids (Aphidoidea), Whiteflies (Aleyrodoidea), Mealybugs (Pseudococcidae), Spider Mites (Tetranychidae) and other soft bodied insects.
Simply screw the Bug Blaster nozzle onto watering wand and connect to your garden hose and you are ready to go. For best results, keep the spray vertical and with a sweeping motion, work the nozzle in and out of the shrub or other plants, concentrating the spray on the infested area of the plants. To reach overhead areas, simply rotate and lift from the ground up.
Control the water flow with the valve at the base of the handle. Restrict the flow for delicate plants and just blast away on hardy plants and heavy infestations. Spray infested plants every 3-5 days for 2-3 weeks (varies depending on type of pest, temperature and other variables due to the lifecycle of the insect). Spray plants that are susceptible to powdery mildew, black spot or rust in the morning to give plants a chance to dry out during the day.
Warning & Toxicities: Keep away from all electricals. Do not use with chemicals.
