Mosquito Barrier is an all natural, super strong, liquid garlic based formula that will keep pests like gnats, mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and ants out of your yard, golf courses, parks and fields. It does not contain chemicals so it is environmentally safe and safe for animals and humans. It will keep pests away for 24 hours - up to a month. It contains garlic that is stronger and more powerful than those found at a grocery store. Mosquitoes are not tolerant to garlic - so one spraying of this product will keep them away. The smell of the garlic juice will become unnoticeable to humans within a few minutes, but to mosquitoes, they can smell it 10,000 times more than humans. Mosquito Barrier can be mixed with canola oil and water to coat standing water to form a thin film of natural oil that will kill the larvae developing in the water.
I did an awful lot of research before taking a "risk" on mosquito barrier. We have 9 acres and this would've been a pricey mistake to make if it didn't work. I am so tickled to say it worked better than we ever could've hoped. We decided to just do the two acres we keep mowed and it has been so great to enjoy working and playing outdoors again. The gallon size was more Han sufficient and we will definitely buy again when the tie comes.
I mixed the product with water and used a sprayer (also purchased from DMOPC.com). I tried it on my patio. I sprayed the low hanging tree limbs, along the edges of my deck, and my back yard fence. It definitely kept the mosquitoes away. My son and his friends were complaining about mosquitoes before use. I asked later them whether they were still bothered by mosquitoes. Negative. The smell of garlic right after use is pretty pungent, but dissipates in a few hours.
But this because the reviews were so positive. Well when I received this. this past weekend I followed the instruction exactly as written. double the amount like it said for heavy infestations. Well I sprayed my entire 1 acre lot that is heavily wooded I spent about 5 hours spraying every single square inch of my property( while being attacked like crazy while spraying) after I was all done. There was no difference from before I started. so I thought OK let it sit for awhile and see how it works, but still no difference. Even the next day was no difference. It was like I never sprayed anything at all. Wasted my whole Saturday morning not to mention the money. Don't buy it is not worth it.
We are sorry that you are unhappy with your purchase of the Mosquito Barrier. This product should be mixed at a rate of 1 gallon per 99 gallons of water, or 1.29 oz. per gallon in smaller application equipment (or up to 1.5 oz./gal. in a canister sprayer). If you have very hard water, it is also recommended to add an equal amount of spreader sticker or surfactant to help the product stay on waxy foliage.
In some environments, mosquito populations will be much higher, especially if there are breeding sites (standing water) near the property that are not treated. For an all natural product with more residual control, you could choose EcoVia EC: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/ecovia-ec-p-9660.html

I've used this product in a professional application service. It does work, however, nothing is 0 when it comes to mosquitoes. Some times it works better than others, but it always helps. I wish it was full proof, but I've come to the conclusion that nothing is full proof.
We have Greyhounds who are sensitive to chemicals, so we bought this to control ticks mainly because we live in a wooded area. Before Mosquito Barrier we couldn't walk to the mailbox without picking up ticks on ourselves. Hubby sprayed all the areas we would be around, and the entire dog area (60'X60') and no more ticks. We did re-apply after a month, or whenever we noticed the ticks returning. I even recommended it to a kennel in Indiana to help control mosquitos (carrier of heartworm infections in dogs) and ticks.
