Automatic garden pest control sprinkler.

I started a garden for the first time, and I had fantastic growth. Then the pests came in an tried to destroy it. So I buy a pump sprayer and go to town on them. Well I dang near killed my plants in the process. This is where I had the idea of a solar powered pest control sprinkler. It would need a container to hold pest control agent (liquid); a sprinkler that can adjust from 0 to 360 degrees, and a time and day control panel. This would help automate pest control for my garden so the garden gets routine pesticides without me over spraying it and killing my garden.

  • Aug 5 2012: Interesting Idea, I’ve started several gardens and have had similar problems every time. It would be great if the whole process could be self-contained and automated. I even like to solar idea so that you don’t have to rely on an external power source.
    • Aug 5 2012: Hey Jason. Thanks for the input. Yeah I was thinking that if it were a regular spraying I wouldn't kill the plants and keep the dang pests of it. If it's solar it's portable. Fog works best but I'm looking to bring it in at a retail price that you will find in Walmart, Target, Home Depot, and Lowes.
      I'm working on a concept right now in Christmas lights, then I'll be moving into garden lighting. I think I 'll be able to work on this concept soon.
