 Sprayer for 3 Pt Hitch?

My wife wants to spend a few hundred dollars to exterminate carpenter bees and other insects around the house. The exterminator prices range from $250-$600(1 year contract) and they spray some sort of dust into the holes bored by the carpenter bees and spray the exterior walls of the house with insecticide. Agway says to just spray "Sevin" on the exterior walls of the house for regular bees.

Are there any suggestions as to how I might simply get rid of these insects (regular bees, carpenter bees, hornets, wasps )? Am I better off investing in 3 pt equipment - if so - what equipment and what spray should I use so that I can do this every year myself?

Sevin is a magic "jack of all bug killer" yet safe enough to use on your garden veggies ( i think it is at least)

I have used Sevin on termites, ants, bee's and any other creepy crawling bug...If you have access to the nests, or ants without getting stung, it should work....but its a slow killer, so run fast Smile

If the bees have a way into the cracks and crevices of your house and have built a nest inside there is no way spray from the exterior will work. You need to dust. I sprayed and sprayed diazinon and there was a nest that would not die. Called an exterminator and he blew in dust with a duster and that killed them off right away. There's a website called bugspray dot com that sells all sorts of this pro type stuff and has advice on how to get rid of all sorts of critters. Not a great website but good products.

 Sprayer for 3 Pt Hitch?

I bought a tank sprayer that is powered by an electric motor that feeds off of your tractor battery. I just put the sprayer in me FEL. I found the 3pt sprayers just too expensive for how many times a year I would use it.

I have attached the site that I bought my sprayer from. They were good to deal with.

I was a bit concerned that a electric pump would be powerful enough, but it is. I got the 30 gallon model.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the replies. Ducati - point noted about sevin, my father-in-law used to swear by it also. Ken - I went to bugspray.com - interesting stuff, also looked at spot sprayers on bvance link. These are definitely possibilities for the long run. You have me thinking. For this year I may pay the low bidder to dust and spray ($250).

 Sprayer for 3 Pt Hitch?

A number of years ago I noticed a downy woodpecker eating the diazinon I had just put down. Sure enough, the bird was dead shortly. At that point, I ceased using the granular poison's. I purchased a three-point sprayer with both a hand nozzle and a 12' boom from Central Tractor and have never regretted it.

The carpenter bees are a real problem. I have them boring into my fascia board and each year I exterminate them. The eggs hatch and you have a new crop. I have heard the dust will get to the eggs.

I ended up building a trailer mounted sprayer that runs off a PTO mount roller pump. 65 gallon capacity at 180psi, all for about $325 including the pump (already had the trailer ). It's skid mounted, so I take it off the trailer when not spraying. (see pics.) 700 lbs was more than I wanted to hang off the 3-point, that far out.

The guy came yesterday afternoon and sprayed, dusted for $250 + tax. I tried to give him a $20 tip, he refused it saying he was a church going man and wouldn't take extra money. I insisted but still to no avail. Instead he told me he gave my son $10 for helping him out with a ladder! Guess I will look him up again next year.

Beagle,

Nice job in the sprayer!

That is similar to mine except I have the integrated unit. If memory serves, I paid 350 for it on sale. No more Central Tractor around here to get those bargains.

That's alot of money in my opinion... and are you sure you want to coat your home in lots of poison on a regular basis?

Carpenter bees bore holes in wood and are drawn to softer wood. If you're seeing tons of them, you may have a moisture problem somewhere that's damaging the wood. Same goes for carpenter ants; if you see a zillion of them it might be a sign there's wood rotting somewhere in a wall or floor.

As far as wasps go, just knock down the nests as you see them. Or get a can of hornet spray and stand back 20' to hit the nest at sunset. Try to discourage them from coming in the first place by closing up soffits, making attics bugproof,etc
