    Backpack leaf blower fogger attachment


    I recently got a husqvarna bts580 mark 2 backpack leaf blower as a gift and Iím thinking I would like to use it as a mosquito fogger as well...anyone know of a good system to be able to do this?...Iíve seen the systems with the gravity tanks but I imagine it wonít work well if you lift the blower tube higher than the tank...it would also not be pressurized...Iíve also seen stand alone electric systems but would rather not drag a cord around with me...I also still have my old hitachi handheld gas leaf blower so I could convert that if it makes more sense...this seems to be the most feasible option I can find...

    Definitely interested in this thread. I'd rather do this than the normal hose mixer I use up in Maine.

    This is the best thing I could find...a gravity feed wonít go high so I canít spray trees so it really needs to be pressurized...I also plan to use it for getting rid of mold on my vinyl siding...easier than using a ladder and a pressure washer...I also assume putting a tank on top of a blower backpack can get heavy plus too heavy

    Just curious if anyone has a better option than this

    I already have a pump sprayer I use for insecticide so that's fitting nicely for me as well.

    There's been some changes in chemicals too since I last looked. I may have to get some new stuff.

    They have a bunch of different kits that have different fittings for specific pump sprayers so I would make sure itís compatible

    Looking at simple green house and siding cleaner...I have a feeling it will require brushing though after applying

    Yeah but an extending pole with a brush could get that done, no?

    yea shouldn't be too much of an issue...i've been putting it off for way too long at this point...probably fog the shit out of it then just use the pressure washer after i let it sit for a while...use the brush as a last resort
