I bought a general powder dispenser from a garden shop. You can fill the tube and then use the handle to pump out the powder. Many of them come with a piece you can place on the end that will direct the spray up or down. I use diatomaceous earth in mine all the time.

Thanks Sunny_Dee...I will search for one of those. Franklin
