It can be used in a hose end sprayer, but there are no settings or methods to use it that way. Most pesticides are designed to be used with a specific amount of water, Bifen IT is normally used around 1 oz per gallon of water per 1,000 square feet of turf. So if the lawn is 4,000 square feet, you will use 4 oz of Bifen in 4 gallons of water to treat the entire 4,000 square feet. There is really no way to calculate this with most retail hose end sprayers, as the calibration and settings are not very accurate.
It is possible to use 4 oz of Bifen IT in a hose end sprayer and then set the sprayer to spray it slowly enough so that you can dispense that amount over the entire 4,000 square feet. Again, there are no specific settings, you basically have to go by eyesight and feel.
