Stop using all of those harmful chemicals to battle the mosquitoes on your property! Not only are they dangerous for you to be using but they also kill off many other living things that you are not wanting to rid your ecosystem of. Most chemicals are detrimental for beneficials like the many species of birds, bees, lady bugs, and butterflies. Not to mention you do not want your pets or small children playing in the area that you have sprayed for fear of coming in contact with the residues left behind by the chemical sprays.
An All-Natural Solution
All-Natural Mosquito Barrier is an all-natural solution to get away from using repellents that contain all of those harmful chemicals. Just one application of the all-natural, liquid garlic-based All-Natural Mosquito Barrier will repel mosquitoes for up to a month’s time. All-Natural Mosquito Barrier is a very strong liquid concentrate made from a very potent variety of garlic, which lab techs call “super garlic.” Garlic contains sulfur which is what repels mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and much more. All-Natural Mosquito Barrier is safe for use in areas that humans or pets traffic frequently, for use in ponds (even when fish are present), and also safe for applying to your foliage in gardens or flower beds.
The odor of the All-Natural Mosquito Barrier is what will deter mosquitoes from entering the treated area. It will keep working for as long as the mosquitoes can sense the odor. When first applied the scent is going to be apparent to you but will begin to fade ultimately becoming undetectable to you in a matter of minutes. However a mosquito’s sense of smell is approximately 10,000 times better than that of a human. So even though you are not able to smell the garlicy odor they can and they will avoid that area for up to a month or better.
Quick Tip: Mosquitoes like bright lights and will flock to a bright light no matter what barriers you have applied. They just can’t help themselves. Try to keep all bright lights turned down during the evening and night hours to further reduce your chances of being bitten.
All-Natural Mosquito Barrier not only works on the nasty blood suckers but it also works to repel geese, grasshoppers, ticks, fleas, gnats, chiggers, fire ants, and armadillos.
Applying All-Natural Mosquito Barrier
All-Natural Mosquito Barrier is available in two sizes: quarts and gallons. A quart will treat approx. 1.25 acres for one application or smaller residential properties may get a couple applications. A gallon covers approx. 5 acres and is the best size for a home that sits on a half-acre for the entire season. More times than not, four applications will be plenty for the entire mosquito season. You will know when to reapply All-Natural Mosquito Barrier by watching the mosquitoes. If you start seeing more and more mosquitoes then you know that it is time to chase them off again.
If there is rain in the forecast for the next 24-48 hours you will want to hold off applying the All-Natural Mosquito Barrier until there is a good 2-3 day dry stretch. Only apply to dry lawns and surfaces. Do not apply if foliage is wet with morning dew and do not run sprinklers for 48 hours after application.
To apply the All-Natural Mosquito barrier you do not need an expensive gas-powered backpack sprayer you can use just about any style pump sprayer. You can find inexpensive pump style sprayers at your local hardware or nursery for a reasonable price. You just want to look for a sprayer that sprays a fine mist for consistency. You can also use a fogger to apply the All-Natural Mosquito Barrier to the intended area.
***Quick Note: *Using a garden hose-end sprayer is not recommended because they are very inconsistent and the droplet size is larger than recommended. However, if you are going to use one anyways use one that has a dial for ounces per gallon. Set the dial for 2 ounces or 4 tablespoons per gallon.
Make sure you spray everywhere mosquitoes hang out. All dark places under porches, in vents leading to basements or under your house and outbuildings are all great mosquito hiding places. It is even recommended to spray All-Natural Mosquito Barrier on the sides of all buildings, porches, and driveways that are not covered in grass as this will help. When spraying foliage and surfaces with the wand of your pump sprayer, hold the wand nozzle approx. 8 inches away, sweeping back and forth for even coverage. Make sure that the spray gets deep into the grass and foliage using a small spray droplet size. Treat all standing water sources as these are breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Use the Standing Water Formula for All-Natural Mosquito Barrier and this will put a stop to the mosquito larvae maturing into biting adult mosquitoes.
