Knock Out Mosquitoes Organically
Here is a great, inexpensive and non-toxic way to get rid of Mosquitoes for up to 21-28 days per application-even in Houston. You simply fill your sprayer with Garlic Oil mixed with water and spray the entire area that you want to be Mosquito-Free.
You must spray a large enough area to be effective and you must spray everything outside i.e. Turfgrass, Decks, Planting Beds, Walkways, Sides of Buildings, Fences, etc. and you must add Soybean Oil as a sticking agent.
Here is how it works: Mosquitoes are attracted to certain scents; perfumes, deodorants, etc. etc and the Carbon Dioxide expelled by animals. Garlic confuses the scent signals so Mosquitoes get confused and cannot find you. The Mosquitoes then either leave the area or die.
Note: If it rains within 48 hours of application, you will probably have to reapply. The garlic odor will last about 30 minutes- 3 hours and then will be odorless to you. Bonus! Garlic will also repel other pest insects at the same time like Slugs, Snails, Aphids, Mites, Caterpillars, Whiteflies, Thrips, etc.
Pure Garlic Oil: 3 oz. Per 1,000 sq. ft.
Garlic Water: 12 oz. Per 1,000 sq. ft.
Add 1/2 oz. of Horticultural Oil as a sticking agent.
