You can use PErmethrin SFR in a hose end sprayer as long as it can be calibrated to the required usage rate. According to the Permethrin SFR product label: For fleas, ant and ticks in lawns - Mix 0.4 – 0.8 fl. oz. of Permethrin SFR in 4 to 25 gallons of water per 1000 square feet. Use the higher rate for fast knockdown and increased residual control. Dense or excessive (greater than 3 inches) lawn height and arid conditions may require higher volume application rates. Repeat application if necessary. Application in combination with compatible surfactants or wetting agents may enhance penetration.
