How it works
Mosquito Barrier is a very potent form of liquid garlic. Garlic contains sulfur, which is a natural repellent to garden pests, including mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. Mosquito Barrier is ideal for mosquito control for your lawn and garden, as it is safe for children, pets, and plants. While odor of Mosquito Barrier becomes unnoticeable to humans within minutes, the smell will keep mosquitoes away for up to a month.
Additionally, when mixed with soybean oil and water, Mosquito Barrier can be used to kill mosquito larvae in standing water. A small amount of water in old tires, cans, or mud puddles is all that is needed for mosquitoes to lay their larvae. The oil found in garlic will suffocate the larvae, removing the next generation of mosquitoes from your home and garden.
A quart of Mosquito Barrier mixed with water will treat 1¼ acres, making it an economical choice for ridding your yard of mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. To apply this natural mosquito repellent, you can a use a canister sprayer, available at most home improvement stores.

More on Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes depend on water for the survival of their species. The females lay eggs on the surface of still water, which remain there for half of their short 2-week lifespan. After a week transforming from the larval to pupal to adult stages, they emerge. Only the female mosquito bites, as she needs the protein in blood to lay each batch of eggs. Mosquitoes are attracted to combination of things that make humans irresistible: perspiration, warmth, body odor, carbon dioxide, and light. The male mosquito’s diet is primarily nectar or other sugary foods.
Mosquito control is extremely important, as they are the most dangerous organism in the world to human beings. In addition to common allergic reaction to the saliva of their bite, mosquitoes are also disease carriers. They are estimated to transmit disease to more than 700 million people annually and will be responsible for 1 in 17 deaths. Besides malaria, the leading cause of premature mortality, mosquitoes can also carry West Nile virus, encephalitis, and yellow fever.
