    Hi Dan –

    I think any spray bottle or 1 gallon pump sprayer would work great for applying diatomaceous earth. I recommend smaller applicators because you will need to continually agitate or shake the solution for even dispersion. Mix 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) per gallon of water and apply to pest problem areas. After application the solution will dry and leave a fine insect-killing film over garden plants, shrubs, trees and lawns.

    Happy gardening!
