Backpack Sprayers

The backpack sprayer is the best way to reduce herbicide use and target specific invasive plants, especially in diverse wildflower plantings.

  • Use a low-volume backpack sprayer. BirchmeierTM and SoloTM are good brands.
  • A 4-ft. wand reaches right down to the target plant.
  • Herbicides made to kill broadleaf weeds will also kill wildflowers.
  • Transline works on tough weeds without a lot of residual effect.
  • Follow the rates on the label for mixing the spray.
