Mosquito Barrier

mosquito-barrier-image.jpegConsumers looking for a natural mosquito repellent that is both environmentally safe and effective have limited choices. Repellent review has chosen to look at one of those repellents, Mosquito Barrier. This natural deterrent contains no harmful poisons or chemicals. The key ingredient behind Mosquito Barrier is sulfur. Very potent garlic cloves are used to make a strong, garlic smelling liquid. The garlic contains a natural sulfur which acts to deter insects such as mosquitoes and ticks. The use of garlic as a natural insect repellent has been practiced for many years. Mosquitoes have a sense of smell 10 thousand times as strong as humans. The nasty garlic odor will disappear for us within a few hours, but last for weeks for the flying pests. Obviously it would be a challenge to use garlic in any area of large size. Mosquito Barrier has solved that problem.

The natural sulfur in Mosquito Barrier kills the mosquitoes on contact. After the initial spraying, mosquitoes will detect the garlic sulfur and stay away from the area. It’s best to spray mosquito barrier during the cooler parts of the day. Early morning between 8 to 10 AM, or early evening after 6 PM are recommended. Mosquito Barrier is not to be used directly on the skin. Spray this repellent on grass, shrubs, or other areas around your environment. Spraying in standing water will actually suffocate mosquito larvae according to a scientific lab report performed by a major U.S. mosquito abatement district.

A recent reviewer of the product stated, ‘I had basically quit using my patio because I was tired of bites and risk of West Nile. I also dislike using nasty chemicals that eradicate all life from my yard. I sprayed my yard (10K sqft) with Mosquito Barrier two weeks ago, and have not seen a single mosquito since. I’m sold!’

Other positive testominials on the efficacy of mosquito barrier include readers of the Detroit News. ‘According to published reports, Garlic Barrier and Mosquito Barrier have also proven to be an effective deterrent to fleas, gnats, rabbits, deer, geese and even armadillos.’

With threats of West Nile Virus and Triple E becoming more prevalent, protecting your yard from the nuisance of ticks, mosquitoes or other pests is a necessity. The garlic-based natural mosquito repellent, Mosquito Barrier, should help act as an effective mosquito control.

Mosquito Barrier can be found online for quantities ranging in size between 1 qt. and 1 gallon.

  1. Is this product EPA registered? The EPA states that all products of this type are to be registered with the EPA and other Governement associations.

    Thank you for your assistance and I look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks for your question! I spoke to a representative at Mosquito Barrier. Because of the safe nature of the ingredients used in the product, it is EXEMPT from EPA Registration under FIFRA.

    http://www.epa.gov/oppbppd1/biopesticides/regtools/25b_list.htm

    Mosquito Barrier is considered a 25b product.

    The company does however have to register with each state and abide by their registration requirements.

    Hope this helps.

  5. Hi Jim,

    The makers of mosquito barrier have a F.A.Q. area at http://www.mosquitobarrier.com/facts.html

    To answer your specific questions using their answers…

    ‘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.’

    ‘Use 2 ounces of Mosquito Barrier for each gallon of liquid. For 2 gallons of total spray put in 4 ounces of Mosquito Barrier. Be sure to add the same amount of either soybean oil, cotton seed oil or vegetable oil as you do Mosquito Barrier and one tablespoon of soap per gallon of water’

    Cheers,
    Michael

  6. do you have to mix this with water in a water hose sprayer or do you pour it in stright dose

  7. Hi Michele,

    Your quickest option would probably be to call mosquito barrier at (800)424-7990. I have not seen it in stores.

    Best of luck! Mike

  8. Hello, I am a commercial applicator and have customers interested in this product. Can I spray it through my 200 gal commercial sprayer? If so do I mix it 2oz/gal or would the mixture differ?

  9. This is the best stuff, ever. I’ve been using it for years because I saw it on a Government wet-site as safe for use on playgrounds. I spray my entire back yard, starting at the house and working my way out into the edge of the woods. It won’t matter is it goes into the bird bath or koi pond, it’s basically strong garlic. The yard smells like garlic toast for a couple of days, not bad. It is not harmful to hummingbirds and bees and lady bugs and all the ‘desirables’, just keeps away the mosquitos, ticks and fleas. My neighbors now use it too and are very pleased. I apply maybe twice a summer, every 6-8 weeks.

  10. Hello,

    I see the product says it is safe for pets and children… but I am almost 14 weeks pregnant, and am allergic to mosquito bites. It’s only April now, and my husband and I LOVE to have lots of bbq’s over the summer. I was afraid I would have to spend the entire summer indoors out of fear of an allergic reaction to a mosquito bite while I am pregnant. Is this product safe to use around the outside of my home while I am pregnant?… Is there a certain amount of time that I (or my toddler or our dogs) should avoid the areas sprayed?

    Thank you.

  11. I’m an American working in Singapore.
    I’ve two questions:
    1. Is there a supplier here I can buy from?
    2. Tried tons of stuff for ridding my schnauzer of ticks. Anyone have feedback on tick killing/control?

    Thanks cause it’s really tough getting stuff and info on the other side of the world

  12. Bill, There’s scientific proof that the product works on ticks according to mosquito barrier.

    Not sure of a supplier there. Call the company directly at (818) 247-9600 for international orders.

  13. I’ve used this before and it works great! I am about to order it again to spray outside. I am curious since it is all just pure garlic and does also help repel fleas and ticks… Is it safe to spray/mist this indoors for flea control (of course allowing it to dry) – I have no carpet but do have wood floors.

  14. Hi Patricia,
    Mosquito Barrier works only in the yard to prevent fleas from re-infesting your animals and keeping fleas away from your house. If you encounter a flea infestation you must clean indoors, outdoors and the animals themselves. In carpets, they hide in the lower parts of the carpet fibers and entwine themselves there and vacuuming may only get 20% of them. Carpets should be steam cleaned and or treated with flea treatments which are available through your veterinarian. Upholstery should be vacuumed every other day during infestations. Fleas can hide in cracks in the floor, in baseboards, in ventilators and under furniture.

    There are a great number of excellent products that can be applied to dogs and cats that kill virtually all the fleas on the animal and any that may get onto the animal for up to 90 days. These are available through your veterinarian and/or local pet store.

  15. I have been reading rewiews on this product for an hour now, seem like they are more towards the “Best product ever” side. Altho there are a few of the disagreeing reiews that speak to the “Doubting Tomas” in my head. I am wondering if this product will have the staying power needed to treat a livestock (ie: few rabbits, 35 chicken, 5 ducks and 2 turkeys) yard? Also, when applying it, is it best to use oil? Some of the reviews People used it others didn’t and results had very different outcomes.

  16. International orders must telephone them directly for purchasing information.
    Please call (818)247-9600.

    Mike

  17. It does not kill mosquitoes. Rather, it is repels them as they do not like the smell. Butterflies and bees are not affected by this product.
