Mosquito Barrier is a very potent liquid garlic that is toxic to soft-bodied insects such as mosquitoes, but is not harmful to humans, plants, pets, bees, or butterflies. This garlic mixture is designed to coat leaves and grass, as well as ornamentals. When sprayed, Mosquito Barrier kills mosquitoes and repels ticks, fleas, and gnats. Afterwards, the coating left on the surfaces of the sprayed plants acts as a barrier against those same insects.
Volume: 1 Quart
Kills mosquitoes. Repels ticks, fleas, gnats, and other soft-bodied insects.
Creates a long-lasting barrier on sprayed surfaces.
Not harmful to plants, humans, pets, and bees.
Garlic odor is undetectable to humans within minutes of being sprayed.

It Works!May 23, 2006
I live in California, and I know that mosquitos are not as bad here as they are in much of the country. That being said, 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!

no impact!Nov 02, 2006
By S. Perez
We have a pretty bad mosquito problem in our yard in the summer - no standing water in our yard but there is a water inlet about 3 blocks away which has tide water, I assume they must come from there. I used a pump sprayer and followed directions on the bottle. It was quite humid when I did the first treatment and so I repeated it just a few days after the first trial - I am sorry to say - I saw absolutely no visible improvement of the mosquito problem in our yard. Maybe it works on SOME types of mosquitos, we have the "tiger" type, black/white stripes which bite at any time of the day, not just at dusk and again, this product did not work for us at all.

If used properly-- it is great!!!Mar 17, 2011
I used a mosquito service last year who sprayed for me, and she made the mistake of showing me what she sprayed and how she did it...now I am doing it myself*!!! If you start early in the spring- like March for here in Texas- you can actually prevent the problem before it starts. It is much harder to control once you already have a problem.
Follow the directions on the package, also adding in the vegetable oil (to kill larvae) and I add about 15-20 drop of peppermint essential oil. It is also an insect repellent and hides the smell of the garlic, which can be strong initially.
Remember that mosquitoes lay their eggs not just in damp areas, but in soil, those deep dry cracks we sometimes get in our yard, gutters where leaves pile up, inside tight-leaved shrubs like boxwoods, etc. Try and spray very liberally around those areas and do it when it is sunny so that it can dry effectively and make sure to repeat if it rains within 48 hours of spraying. Yes, it takes a little time, but it is worth it for me to have a nice yard where our family can hang out.
Also remember that a mosquito will travel a VERY far way- like a mile- for a meal, so you are never going to eliminate every mosquito, but this product is effective if used properly.
*I use in conjunction with Dr. T's granules- one week I spray and one week I spread granules.

Works greatMay 14, 2007
By Glenn R. Lockett
I mixed and sprayed this product 2 weeks ago, following the instructions. The first couple of days I would get a whiff of garlic in the yard, but it soon disippated. As of tonight the mosquitos still are not bothering me, and they used to LOVE me. I could barely go in the yard for 5 minutes with the dogs and I'd come back with at least 3 or 4 bites. If you're having mosquito problems, I'd definitely give this a try.

smells great---works okayNov 06, 2006
By Mom on the move
The smell of this product after spraying is amazing---it has a very strong garlic smell that lasts for several hours. It seemed to work as well as some of the other more toxic products on the market---however Mosquito Be Gone is still the winner for getting rid of mosquitos. I like the idea of using products that are environmentally friendly---however, with the horrible mosquitos that invaded Galveston, Texas this year, we needed something a bit stronger for our yard. I would use Mosquito Barrier again, however----mostly when the threat of mosquitos is not severe.
