    Can I mix Sevin dust with water in a hose-end sprayer? Like dry MiracleGro? Or does it have to be used dry, as a powder?

    I think the point of the dust is because it messes up the systems of the bugs?

    I'm not sure how that would work, but they make a concentrate liquid sevin if you want to spray instead of dust.

    The pesticide label is more than just a piece of paper. It's a legal document recognized by courts of law. The applicator assumes certain responsibilities upon purchase of the product. Applicators must read and follow the pesticide label. Read the pesticide label before a purchase, before mixing, before applying, and before storing or disposing of the excess pesticide or empty containers.

    We use the liquid mix. It is easier for us because up on this hill there is always a breeze and I don't like the idea of powdering myself. With the Hudson sprayer it's a snap and I stay cleaner...the draw back is you cant use the spray on mix on your animals....

    If the label says its a wettable powder, you can mix with water and spray.
