A technician brought in a B&G Pest Control Hand Sprayer and asked us to repair it. He said it wouldn’t spray. A quick look revealed the sprayer had never been properly cleaned. The filter screen was completely clogged. Here is a photo the screen along with what a new one should look like.
As you have read in this blog, it is critical that you check and clean the filter of your Pest Control Sprayers, whether power or manual.
In this case, the sprayer was a total loss. The cost to clean and repair the B&G Sprayer was too high to justify the repair. The client could have avoided this expense by ensuring his pest control technicians were cleaning and servicing their sprayers.
