insect spray

has anyone distributed mosquito and tick spray through their sprinkler system? Can it be done, is it safe, is it legal (in New York)?

Not a very safe practice if you ask me. There is fertigation, fertilizing through your sprinkler system.

Simply put! You can get pretty screwed if you try something that is not speced to run through a system. I won't even offer Fertigation with my systems- To much of a liability!!!!!!!

I considered putting in fertigation as I install my irrigation system, however, with two small boys, I've reconsidered. There has to be a health concern with a system that distributes fertilizer through the air once every two or three days. Proof that this shouldn't be a concern could sway my opinion though. The systems are convenient.
