When you initially spray Mosquito Barrier it kills the mosquitos and chases away the ticks, fleas and gnats. It coats the leaf surface of the grass, ornamentals and lower leaves of the trees with natural sulfur contained in garlic juice and all of these insects, not initially killed, are repelled from the area by this juice. It also prevents entry of any neighboring mosquitoes that may consider wandering in from next door. Mosquito larvae which were in any standing water in the area are now suffocated by the spray which coats the water’s surface and prevents oxygen from reaching the larvae. The Mosquito Barrier is odorless to humans, but not to the insects. A mosquito’s sense of smell is about 10,000 times better than yours and they are able to locate humans because they detect the carbon dioxide given off by us. Mosquito Barrier masks the carbon dioxide odor. If they can’t find you, they can’t bite you and they seek nourishment elsewhere.
Is Mosquito Barrier safe for my children and pets?
Yes! There are no poisons or harmful chemicals in Mosquito Barrier. Just 99.3% garlic juice with some food grade preservatives added.
Does Mosquito Barrier repel Fleas, Ticks and Chiggers?
Yes, but don’t spray your dog or cat. Instead, cut all tall grass and spray liberally on grass, shrubs , plants and tree trunks in the yard. Spray the yard completely. Also, be sure to spray the sides of buildings, tree trunks and wooden fence posts to a height of 6 feet when spraying for ticks. There is no need to spray the foliage on any trees . If there is a heavy infestation, repeat in 5 days and then every two weeks thereafter. That should be sufficient to keep the insects out of the yard.
Do I have to spray again if it rains?
Do not spray if rain is predicted for the next 24 to 48 hours. After spraying and having about a 48 hour dry-spell window the Mosquito Barrier will generally be okay even through 2 or 3 moderate rain showers. Best way to determine when to spray again is to watch for mosquitoes. If you see them returning – it’s time to spray again.
Is Mosquito Barrier harmful to beneficials like birds, bees, ladybugs and butterflies?
No, not at all. Birds, bees and ladybugs are not bothered by the garlic spray. Butterflies are not bothered by the garlic spray if you do not spray it on them directly.
Is Mosquito Barrier effective on anything besides mosquito’s, fleas, ticks and chiggers?
Yes. Canadian Geese, it repels them from lawns and pond areas in both residential and commercial applications.
