Oh yeah. I forgot to remind you to occasionally shake your sprayer to keep the DE in suspension as it will settle. I also recommend not setting your nozzle to too fine a mist or it may clog. If that happens just open it up to a stream and clear it with a short squirt. At least that is what I have experienced. The amount of DE I recommend is fairly high but I have found it is just high enough to give a good fine layer of DE that is effective against most pests. I have used smaller amounts but found they were less effective and I have used much larger amounts and found they clogged my sprayer too often; but if I got it sprayed on it was even more effective.
