BROWN, J. R.; WILLIAMS, D. C.; GWINN, T.  and  MELSON, R. O.. Flit-gun sprayer characteristics. Rev Panam Salud Publica [online]. 1998, vol.3, n.5, pp. 322-325. ISSN 1020-4989.

Six flit-gun sprayers were tested for possible use in mosquito adulticide programs where inexpensive nonmotorized application technology may be required. An analysis of variance for differences in droplets £ 24 microns (µ), droplets ³ 48 µ, droplets/cm2, volume median diameters, and mosquito mortality is provided. As shown by these data, good results can be achieved with this equipment.
