This spray repellent is incredibly useful and highly recommended for keeping mosquitos and other insects away from you and your family. This spray can get used in a variety of settings ranging from grassy fields to sporting events, and cookouts.

One of the major features of this product is that its made of garlic and has absolutely no chemicals or harmful poisons. This spray won’t irritate your skin and its safe for use around children and pets.

The mosquito barrier is designed only to require a small amount mixed with water. If you use this repellent in your home, it will keep mosquitos out for as long as four weeks. Mosquitos are incredibly sensitive to the smell of garlic, so they will not come anywhere near it.

Also, if you mix the repellent with soybean oil and spray any standing water, you have in your yard, or near your home, it will kill off all the developing mosquito larvae in the water. This does not harm bees or butterflies. This product also works very well on ticks and fleas.

Our Review

Spray repellents are getting more attention over the past few years for the impending health risks associated with them. If the repellent has too many chemicals, it can irritate your skin, but if it does not have enough ingredients to repel mosquitos, it’s useless.

This Product Does Not Contain Deet

As we said before, a lot of repellent companies have been taking some heat over their most popular active ingredient-DEET. This is not the only thing that is going into your insect sprays, so we’re going to break down the most popular ingredients in all your favorite over the counter insecticides.

What Is Deet?

This chemical has been around since the 1940s and originally got used in the Army, and there is a lot of research that backs up its effectiveness. Honestly, it works and its proven to work-the question is, how safe is it.

If you treat DEET respectfully and do not overuse it, there should be no problem. There have been some instances where DEET caused seizures due to overexposure, but these are incredibly rare and require a severe overexposure to the chemical.

If you have to use DEET outside it is always smart to go with the lowest percentage necessary to do the job. If you are hiking in deep woods, go for 25-30 percent. If you are spending the evening at an outdoor barbeque in someone’s yard, go for the 10 percent.

Lastly, try to avoid inhaling even the smallest amount because it can quickly irritate your stomach and do not let kids apply it themselves.

Mosquito Barrier Repellent Is Made From Garlic

This mosquito repellent has a stiff advantage over a lot of the competition because it is made entirely of garlic. Mosquitoes cannot tolerate the smell of garlic so this is very popular for keeping them away plus it does not irritate your skin. Garlic does not contain any of the harmful chemicals that come in traditional insecticides either.

Highly Effective At Keeping Away Mosquitoes

Due to the nature of this product it is highly effective at keeping mosquitoes away from you. Applying this spray to an area you want to keep clear will ensure you do not have any mosquitoes there for as long as four weeks. You do not need to re-treat the area you can spray it once and not worry about mosquitoes again for a while.

Safe Around Kids And Pets

You can use this repellent as much or as little as you need because it is not harmful to your pets or children. If you feel that the mosquitoes are still too much in and around your home you can apply more. The garlic smell can be overpowering so do not overdo it until you know exactly how much you can handle inside your home. Outdoors you should not have to worry much.

You Do Not Need To Apply It Often

Every insecticide is slightly different, and each individual is different as well so these numbers may vary. The Mosquito Barrier repellent is exceptionally strong and potent so you do not need to apply it nearly as much as the traditional sprays, foggers, and candles.

Spraying it once in your yard or around your home offers protection for up to four weeks. This is much longer than any other product on the market. It’s important to pay attention to what kind of protection you need depending on how long you are going to be outside.

Remember, products that contain 50% or more DEET do not offer any additional protection, and all you are doing is harming your skin and putting yourself at risk. Even if you are only going outside for a few minutes, you should always have some form of repellent on because it only takes one bite to get infected. This is why it’s better to use a product that is primarily based on something other than DEET. Long term exposure to the chemical can be incredibly harmful to your health.

Our Experience

As with most reviews you read online we’re giving our honest opinion on the product. The mosquito barrier liquid spray lives up to its expectations because it is incredibly strong. Our goal was to create a barrier around an outdoor patio area for a party we we’re having so we mixed it up and sprayed the bushes and shrubs surrounding the patio. Within ten minutes the patio was completely free from mosquitoes.

Our yard is located in somewhat of a swampy area so it is tough during the summer months because the bugs are so bad but this mosquito spray definitely served its purpose for us.

The only issues we experienced were:

The smell. The garlic smell is incredibly overpowering if you are not expecting it. Do not go and just spray this stuff everywhere because the smell will catch up with you very quickly.

We noticed it did not have much of an effect on flies and gnats. We were still dealing with them.
