Stop Wasting Chemical Heres How You Can!

Spraying chemical is not a quick job. Whether its herbicide, pesticide, or any other chemical, the process is time-consuming and can get quite pricey, especially if you are wasting chemical by over spraying. Oftentimes it is hot out and a break from spraying sounds so good, but if you stop for a moment, you are likely to forget where you left off, and you could end up respraying areas or worse… skipping spots. Even if you are not stopping for a break, it’s easy to overlap where you’ve already sprayed. All in all, it is easy to waste chemical and/or skip spots when spraying.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to be able to see where you have already sprayed? As you may have guessed from reading this far, there is. Lazer Spray Pattern Indicator is a non-toxic concentrated colorant designed to be used with herbicides, fungicides, pesticides, and fertilizers. Now, with lazer, you can see where you’ve sprayed and refrain from wasting chemical.

Lazer comes in different colors according to your preference. Lazer Blue, our most popular, can be purchased in either the 8oz or gallon size and coats the targeted area in a temporary blue glaze. Lazer Green works both as a spray indicator and a color enhancer through the fresh green accent it gives the area it coats. Lazer Red comes in a more concentrated solution that must be used with Foam Max or other foam concentrate (1 ounce of Lazer Red foam dye marker per 10 gallons of foam concentrate).

Because Lazer is concentrated dye, it is best to wear surgical or another type of protective gloves so that you can keep from staining your skin. Lazer is not harmful to skin but will stain easily if not diluted. If it is diluted as suggested in the given mix rates found at the bottom of this post. Lazer can be removed from skin with several washes. Some people recommend shaving cream when it comes to washing off the dye.

To get the smoothest pour with no mess have the FRONT label pointing towards the sky. You need to pour slowly and closely to your container in a controlled manner. Have both hands on the bottle and allow air flow to enter the spout as your pouring, DO NOT attempt to quickly dump this product in your sprayer or spraying equipment. Slow and steady while pouring this, allow airflow to enter the spout as if you were pouring gasoline. Following these steps will prevent messes and allow you to spend more time spraying and less time cleaning!

Mix bleach with water and spray onto the dye, it will clear the dye like a magic trick. Make sure you ventilate the area as bleach can give off a strong smell.
