GLENDALE, Calif., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- If you have been eating Garlic to keep the mosquitoes away you may want to think again. While there is absolutely no scientific evidence that eating garlic actually keeps mosquitoes away, spraying garlic has plenty of evidence to prove it keeps them away.
Spraying garlic extract on grassy lawns is not as strange as it seems. Mosquito Barrier, a product from Garlic Research Labs, Inc. is being used successfully by city parks, golf courses and individuals all across the country. Mosquito Barrier is a very strong liquid garlic made from very potent garlic cloves which is considerably more potent than the garlic found in grocery stores. Garlic has a natural sulfur which repels insects, including mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and even black flies. Spraying garlic to keep insects away is not a new practice. Farmers and master gardeners have been doing it for many generations.
Mosquito Barrier is a three pronged attack. First, it kills the adult mosquitoes on contact. Second, the garlic coated plants keep mosquitoes out of the area. Lastly, it suffocates any mosquito larvae in standing water, such as puddles, under decks, water in tin cans or depressions in lawns. Generally, four applications are enough for the entire mosquito and tick season. Even in the heaviest of infestations the gallon size is nearly always sufficient for an entire year for most homes. For those concerned with the smell, the odor disappears once the garlic extract diluted in water dries, typically within 3 to 4 hours.
Mosquito Barrier is currently being used successfully in a wide variety of applications. Dennis Johnson, Director of Health, Guilford Health Department in Guilford, CT says, "The product works remarkably well." Ron Holt, City Administrator in Marlow, OK adds, "We sprayed our park and it worked!"
In a recent Official study conducted by the Division of Malaria Control in Kenya, Mosquito Barrier was proven to be effective against both Anopheles and Culex adult mosquitoes. Mosquito Barrier achieved a mortality rate of over 90% after 24 hours of exposure. Based on this information, Mosquito Barrier was found to be useful in reduction of mosquito bites, thus reducing disease.
