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.

Sunfeather Soap Oil vs. Spritzer

For those of you that would rather use a natural repellent as opposed to a chemical-based deterrent, Sunfeather puts out a line of environmentally safe products based on ingredients including Rosemary, Citronella, and Lemongrass.

One reviewer from Minnesota comments, ‘And since the mosquito is Minnesota’s OTHER State bird, it’s a GOD-SEND!.’ While another states, ‘Bug Off! Spritzer is the ONLY non-DEET product that works!’ A negative aspect of the Sunfeather repellent is the price, but as one reviewer writes; ‘It’s pricey, but it buys my ticket to the great outdoors during mosquito season.’

sunfeather-soap-natural-repellent.jpegSunflower wasn’t kidding when they named their 2 oz. herbal bug repellent the Little Bugger. While safe for the environment the bottle is a little small. One man comments, ‘ To get a grasp of what I mean, try to imagine 2 ounces. Now try to imagine the surface area of a 300 pound man’s skin. Needless to say it adds up to about 5 bottles to cover my body. Ridiculous.’ When I spoke to a Sunfeather representative, they did say the oil is to be applied sparingly. Since these are natural repellents, the ingredients would be more expensive to attain. Personally, I would expect to pay more for a repellent made this way.

While they weren’t reviewed, one way to repel mosquitoes and other winged pests, would be to try Sunfeather natural soap. If price is a factor to you, these would provide a natural defense and possibly last longer.
