Setting Up Your System

Use the velcro strap in your M.S. System package to secure hosing high on the blower tube & eliminate slack in the hose.

Many leaf blower tubes are made up of two or three sections. Removing a section may allow easier placement of M.S. System nozzle and easier misting.

Application

Skip to 3:05 in video above for recommended spray technique! We recommend standing a little further back than this video shows, especially if you have delicate plants, because M.S. Systems use your leaf blower which has a stronger volume of air flow than a professional backpack mist blower. Blower force is critical to move foliage around so that insecticide can reach deep inside plants and underside of leaves where mosquitoes hide during the hottest part of the day.

  • Rain may wash away insecticide…try to spray at least 48 hours before rain is forecasted

  • Apply insecticide during hottest part of the day when mosquitoes are hiding and resting deep inside plants and under leaves

  • Refresh insecticide application about every 3 weeks or when mosquitoes/unwanted bugs are noticeable

  • Suggested insecticides do not damage plants. To avoid harm to bees, avoid application of insecticide to flowering portion of plants

  • Concentrate insecticide application towards shady, moist areas that mosquitoes prefer

  • Focus application mist INSIDE, AROUND & UNDER the following: dense ground cover, plants, thick shrubbery, small/bushy trees and underside of decks/porches

  • A good rule of thumb is to apply insecticide from ground foliage up to about 6-8 feet

  • Wear PPE i.e. mask, glasses, long sleeves, pants (or per insecticide instructions)

  • Suggested insecticides are children/pet friendly – Follow insecticide instructions & keep children/pets inside during outdoor application and for one hour after

Troubleshooting

Fix a Hose Leak

If your hose is leaking, watch for a simple fix

Fix pump pressure in your Home Depot/Hudson handheld tank.

If you need to restore pressure to your HDX/Hudson handheld model tank, watch for a simple fix.

Helpful tip for these tanks: Clip trigger handle into the pump handle while spraying so you only have to hold onto one handle while working the trigger valve. Leave the pump handle in the extended position while spraying so that you can easily set the tank on the ground to quickly pump without interruption to mist application.

FAQs

All M.S. System numbers do the same thing but differ in design. Since M.S. Systems connect to tank sprayers at their trigger handle, which also vary in design, M.S. System numbers are made with their own nut/o-rings combination to fit various tank sprayers.  M.S. Systems fit hundreds of brand name tank sprayers, see our most up to date list of compatible tank sprayers.

Yes, M.S. Systems are universal to all leaf blowers! We recommend using 375 CFM or higher leaf blower for great results.

The M.S. System nozzle that fits on the end of the blower tube is adjustable to 3 DIFFERENT HEIGHTS which ensures liquid will always be dispensed from the center of the blower tube opening. The patented nozzle is made of a stiff, durable, yet flexible plastic that conforms to any blower tube shape.

M.S. Systems connect to tank sprayers at their trigger handle. Since trigger handles on tank sprayers vary greatly by size & shape depending on their brand and model number, the different M.S. System numbers are designed to fit those variations. M.S. Systems fit 100s of brand name tank sprayers, see our most up to date list of compatible tank sprayers.

Yes! You can use M.S. System with 100s of brand name tank sprayers of all makes and models.  See our most up to date list of compatible tank sprayers.

HANDHELD TANK SPRAYERS are great for yard sizes less than .75 acres and can be used with handheld or backpack leaf blowers.

BACKPACK TANK SPRAYERS are great for yard sizes greater than .75 acres and are most easily used with handheld leaf blowers rather than backpack leaf blowers since you already have a backpack tank sprayer on your back.

A diffuser cap will restrict air flow. Leaf blowers have very high CFM’s and need to flow freely.  Restricted air flow at the end of the leaf blower tube could result in “over-speed seizures” to the leaf blower engine. Our nozzle design has minimal blower tube obstruction keeping your leaf blower’s engine healthy.

Also, the diffuser cap must be tight against the blower tube in order to work effectively.  If any air flow escapes around the diffuser cap, the spray pattern becomes ineffective. In order to ensure an effectively tight diffuser cap on a blower tube, the user would have to modify their blower tube by drilling a hole about 4″ from the diffuser cap.  We don’t want M.S. System buyers to have to make any alterations to their blower tubes because we ensure an EASY & USER-FRIENDLY mist blowing application!

More important than droplet size, the key factors of effective insecticide spraying are spray pattern, getting insecticide on the underside of leaves where mosquitoes live and avoiding spray drift. Using the forceful blowing power from a leaf blower along with effective spray technique/pattern will easily accomplish this.

For further explanation, see the recommended spray technique video made by Syngenta in the Application section above.  At the end of Syngenta’s video, they demo a Stihl professional backpack mist blower and water-sensitive, color-changing paper…when the mist blower is properly used, you can clearly see that there are so many droplets dispersed on the paper that the paper is changed to a solid color, proving that droplet size is irrelevant when proper spray technique is used.

Also, many insecticide product labels such as Proflex (our #1 overall recommended product for bug control) recommend a larger droplet size versus a fine mist to reduce chance of spray drift, see Proflex Specimen Label.

Leaf blowers have different CFM power so droplet sizes will vary.  The stronger the leaf blower, the smaller the droplets will be.  M.S. Systems have an in-line, turn valve near the end of the tubing to adjust the amount of liquid being dispensed.  For weaker leaf blowers, we recommend adjusting the liquid so that less is being dispensed when mist spraying.
