Using a backpack sprayer for adding water to bowls.
Pete Gothro sent the email below after viewing the new bee bowl videos. I think its a great idea...particularly if there were two people.....One person could put out bowls and the other could follow and fill.
A 5 gallon sprayer would fill 300 3.25 ounce bowls.

Good videos you posted. While watching it, I remember you mentioned that you don’t use larger bowls due to the volume of liquid needed to fill them, and then I had my “AHA” moment – what about using a backpack-type sprayer with a low-pressure nozzle (or no nozzle at all?) to dispense your mix? Just a thought.
