Garlic is well-known for its insect-repellent and fungicidal properties. This specially-processed all-natural garlic concentrate is odorless minutes after it is applied, even indoors and will not affect the taste of edible plants. Garlic repels, rather than kills insects, so it is important to apply it before they have taken up residence. It can be applied as often as weekly, but in most cases 10-12 times per season for pints/quarts and 4-6 times per season for gallons is enough. Do not use just before or during pollination or bees will avoid the plants! Mix the pint or quart size Garlic Barrier with water at a ratio of 1:10. Pints cover 7,500 sq ft and quarts cover 15,000 sq ft. The gallon size is concentrated and can cover as much as 10-12 acres; use at a 1:100 ratio. Use with fish oil as a sticker-spreader to increase efficacy. This pest control is exempt from registration and reporting under Federal & California EPA standards and therefore requires no Pest ID#.

This product did a pretty effective job of keeping bugs out of my garden, including some annoying flying bugs like mosquitoes. It did not repel all the bugs, but it definitely reduced their populations. The garlic smell was pretty noticeable for the first few days (luckily I love that smell).Review by Mary (on 6/11/14)
