Eco mosquito management. Where we live we’ve fought with mosquitos for 6 years. We’re in the woods and are near a creek where there is some standing water. We’ve used Mosquito Dunks, Mosquito Deletos, put up bat houses, used an arsenal of natural mosquito repellants, citronella tiki torches, put up screened gazebos and finally tried a garlic mosquito repellant. I’m happy to finally say that the garlic repellant has been a success.

We have an organic lawn service and they came and applied it to our lawn before a big party. It worked great and the effect lasted almost a month. Our lawn service is BioLawn and they sell this garlic spray in big jugs. We’ve decided it works so well we’re going to buy it and get a lawn sprayer. Another added benefit is it also deters ticks which we have a lot of around here.
