    Using a sprayer wand with a cab?

    Any tips for using a sprayer wand for fire ant mounds with a cab, other than holding the door open? Using the back window would be tiring on an aged back! My old setup was pulling a 25 gallon sprayer behind an open station, simple and fast.

    Get one of those helmets and gun turret setups from an Apache helicopter where you just look at the target to aim it.

    Actually I'll be curious to see if people come up with clever ideas to make this happen for you.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Get someone to drive the tractor, then walk along or ride the sprayer. There’s a few advantages to open station tractors.

    Are you getting decent control of the fire ant population by spot spraying mounds? Since you're doing the spraying from a tractor you must have a fair amount of land to cover. I'd think in Texas you'd be broadcasting bait. Or are you using limited spot spraying to supplement the bait?

    I only do 5 acres, but I broadcast IGR type bait twice a year. I'd been hiring it out, but just bought a Herd seeder with fire and plates to do the broadcast treatment myself. For supplemental spraying I walk with a 5 gallon backpack sprayer. I've got a 3-point sprayer with a wand, but there's just too much drift to use it around the horses.

    I had an employee from Arkansas who as a kid in the 60's worked for a crop duster. His job was to walk the field perimeter, wearing a yellow raincoat and cap, and to hold a flag for the pilot to use to line up his DDT spray passes.

    Your goal is to operate a spot sprayer for ant beds from inside your closed tractor cab? Have you considered an agricultural spot spraying drone? There are small versions available for less than a thousand dollars.

    You could do the searching from the comfort of your cab, and then remotely call in an aerial pesticide strike. It looks like fun.
