It might be said the choice of equipment for pesticide applications is only as efficient as the knowledge of the person using that equipment.

The proper maintenance of pest control equipment is almost as important as making the correct choice of equipment for a particular job. Any amount of expertise is diminished by malfunctioning of equipment. It is not important if the details for repairing equipment is from memory or from a manual, if a breakdown occurs. Homemade equipment or devices not considered as standard productive pesticide applicating equipment on the market still must conform to all applicable government regulations. Label instructions with regard to the application of a pesticide usually govern the type of equipment which is permitted to be used.
