  • Asked by Brian from Pelham, Nh
    07/21/2015
    Q
    Are there any scents you can add to the Mosquito Barrier to reduce the smell?
    It is very potent and was wondering if I could add some type of scent to mask the garlic smell.
    A

    There is nothing that can be added to the Mosquito Barrier to reduce the smell as that garlic smell is what repels insects from the area in the first place. The smell of the garlic juice will become unnoticeable to humans within a few minutes and will only be strong during and right after application.

  • Asked by Josh from Miami, Fl

    Q
    Can I use this product in the same sprayer that I use Phantom?
    I have heard that mixing certain types of product in the same sprayer may negate one or the other. Something about repellents vs non-repellents.
    A
    It is always best to use separate sprayers for different insectices and/or repellants. However, if that is not an option then you can perform a "triple rinse". A triple rinse involves filling up your sprayer tank with clean water and spraying the entire contents of the sprayer out and repeating this process 2 additonal times. This is to ensure that the lines and tank are cleaned out completely as to prevent cross contamination.

    Q
    If this lasts up to 1 month, what happens (meaning how effective is it) after i mow my yard?
    If I apply the spray, wait 48 hours and mow my yard, will it still work?
    A
    Mowing your yard should not affect your application of Mosquito Barrier as the Mosquito Barrier should be applied to the underside of leaves of bushes, shrubs, ornamentals, and low lying tree branches, not necessarily to the turf itself. The underside of the leaves is where mosquitos tend to land and rest during the day.

    Q
    Will Mosquito Barrier work on my deck which is 12' above ground?
    We can't sit out day or night because of the skeeters
    A

    Mosquito Barrier is meant to be applied to lawns, ornamentals, edibles and trees, not hard surfaces like wood.  It should be applied to the underside of leaves of bushes, shrubs, ornamentals, and low lying tree branches as that is where the adults lay during the day and it will help to repel them from areas it is applied to which can help around the porch if close enough.  Otherwise something like the Dynatrap Indoor / Outdoor Insect Trap with Optional Wall Mount (DT1100) could be used up on the deck.

  • Asked by Doug from Estevan , Canada
    07/07/2014
    Q
    Which is better mosquito barrier or Talstar for Mosquitoes in yard
    A
    Talstar P is our most popular product for killing mosquitoes with a residual of up to 30 days outside and is not going to be much of a repellent.  It is labeled for over 75 differents pests as well so will kill more than just mosquitoes.  Mosquito Barrier is fast becoming the most popular for a repellent, but is only going to kill the adults that you make contact with while applying the product but is said to repel for 24 hours - 30 days.  The choice is really in what you are looking for a in a product, a repellent or a product that will kill over time.

  • Asked by Christian from Miami
    09/08/2014
    Q
    Can I add Mosquito Barrier to my misting system 55 Gal? I am tired of buying Riptide and getting poor results.
    My misting system sprays 3 times a day for 50 seconds each time.
    A
    No, Mosquito Barrier cannot be used in a misting system. Riptide is only a contact kill so it will only kill what it touches. Once it is dry, it is no longer active. If you are looking for something that has a quick knockdown, as well as a residual, we would recommend Sector Misting Concentrate. A half gallon will mix in a 55 gallon misting system. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
