Where cost is not prohibitive, solidified carbon dioxide seems to offer the most flexible and simplest means of generating gas (air) pressure for operating an insecticide spray-gun. It has the advantages of flexibility, minimum operating time per unit sprayed, no adjustings required after initial setting, ease of operation, and fire hazard reduction.
