'Air sprayer?' I think you mean a compressed air sprayer? That's the small, one gallon metal (stainless steel) sprayer that's the exterminator's main tool for spraying chemicals.

The 'smoke' stuff is probably a dust that's sprayed with an aerosol can, I assume. They make them with many different kinds of dust. They also call them 'flushing' compounds because they tend to flush insects from hiding spots. Except that springtails don't really hide anywhere. They usually just accumulate on windowsills. They are an "outside bug," which is why they're called occasional invaders. They just blunder inside, they have no interest in the inside of a house, there's really noting to sustain them inside.
