Which is the best backpack Sprayer for a residential thing?

I have a vineyard in the backyard, and it is getting hit by bugs I never knew existed. So, which one, under $150, will fill the bill? Comfort and light weight is key, but force of spray is mandatory. Which one?

My name is Suzi. JD is fishing, and I am buying this toy for him. Other than that, it's me and the empty windex bottle.

Thanks!

Solo makes some nice ones. Others have asked the question on here before, try a search of the archives.

You'll have to decide on manual or powered sprayer. I don't think you'll be able to touch a powered sprayer for under $300.

Here is a link that might be useful: Solo Backpack Sprayers

Birchmeir appears to be a pretty good one too. It is available at Gemplers.

A few weeks ago, I had to have a bee swarm removed from under my shed. The technician had one of these and it has a lot of really nice features including an exterior pump that can be rebuilt easily. His was a 4 gallon model and I do not know if they have other sizes.

Why does this sound like the TV ad for late night phone calls?

I would spend a little more and get an SP SYSTEMS SP1 backpack sprayer.
