>First, is it something you spray on foliage or just the ground around 
>the plants?

You spray it on the leaves.  However, since the stuff is quite 
expensive, you will want to spray it with a small atomizer.  It's not 
something you mix up in a gallon tank sprayer unless you have a few 
acres to spray.  However, there is no information about any adverse 
long term health issues with it's use.  Probably relatively save, but 
you don't want to get it on you if you can avoid it.  It's somewhat 
caustic and can irritate the skin.  I used a Q-tip to rub it on the 
leaves.  It doesn't work nearly as well as the information they send 
out claims.  Supposely there is also a lot of difference in the 
response from different hostas for different concentrations.  Some 
need a higher concentration, some a lower concentration.
