"I've been looking for an environmentally friendly product to fend off mosquitoes for a few years, and none met to my expectations. As soon as I heard about Skeet-R-Gone and the fact that it's a garlic concentrate I was interested right away. After a quick hook up into our irrigation system we injected the garlic concentrate and sprayed it around the property. Because the product is so concentrated it uses hardly any at all. Right away we noticed a difference around the property. Living near a creek and forest we were always trying to fend off mosquitoes. We used citronella products and bug sprays and nothing seemed to do the trick. All of a sudden the mosquitoes disappeared and we immediately began spending more time outside and enjoying our time outdoors a lot more. Not seeing mosquitoes around our property I began to question whether it was still mosquito season or not, but soon realized that other places in the valley were still dealing with them. Between myself and friends that have seen the difference before and after we're all totally convinced and blown away with how well Skeet-R-Gone works."
TBI recommends the use of ecologically, biologically friendly concentrates only. Our favourite product is Mosquito Barrier.
It is a 100% pet, kid and eco-friendly product.
Mosquito Barrier is a very strong liquid garlic made from very potent garlic cloves. The garlic used in Mosquito Barrier is a very powerful variety which is much more potent than the garlic found in grocery stores, sometimes refered to as a "super garlic". Garlic has a natural sulfur which repels insects, including mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and even black flies. Spraying garlic to keep insects away is not something new. Farmers and master gardeners have been doing it for many generations.
Dries in Minutes, leaving NO odour!
Since mosquitoes are soft-bodied insects, the garlic juice can be very toxic to them in increased concentrations. The juice does not harm humans or pets or plants, but to mosquitoes it can be deadly. The odour of it chases them out of the area and they stay away - for as long as they can detect the odour. While the odour of sprayed garlic juice becomes undetectable to humans within minutes, the mosquitoes will still detect it. Mosquitoes have extremely sensitive odor sensing antennae - as high as 10,000 times better than humans. They can detect the garlic extract for much longer periods of time and will stay away from the sprayed area for up to a month and more. If the mosquitoes aren't in your yard, they can't get into your house.
Generally, four applications are enough for the entire mosquito and tick season. Even in the heaviest of infestations, the gallon size is almost always enough for the entire year for most homes.
