City of Stratford, CT
I am the Mosquito Control Officer for the Town of Stratford, CT (Pop. 49,389). The town is located along the Housatonic River and Long Island Sound. There are a great many salt water marshes within our borders.
This Spring our Town Manager asked us to investigate a newly patented product, Mosquito Barrier. The manufacturer sent us a gallon for testing. I was shocked at its effectiveness. After spraying it, our town employees at the Water Control Plant are now able to work outdoors in T-shirts. Spectators can watch our local softball team and not have to fend off mosquitoes with cans of Raid or use Off. Children at Sterling House Daycare Center do not complain about mosquito bites. I used to receive from 5-7 calls a day from residents complaining of mosquitoes, now my calls are down to none or one a day. I feel like the Maytag repairman. We are able to get these results without the introduction of any chemicals into the environment. Needless to say we are expanding our use of Mosquito Barrier in our town.

"We have been using your garlic product as part of our municipal mosquito control program. Although the product works remarkably well for backyard mosquito control, our pesticide contractor is uncertain it can be formulated and applied effectively with a commercial truck mounted ultra fine mist applicator unit. Do you have any advice on this matter or could you refer us to a source that may assist us with setting up a road side application of the liquid garlic spray"

"I wanted to let you know how your product Mosquito Barrier performed for us this past summer. As you know, weather conditions were such that in late summer we had quite a mosquito problem. Our annual "Outlaw Festival" comes during this time and our city park needed to be fogged for mosquitoes. We sprayed the park with Mosquito Barrier and it worked! We are happy with the results and look forward to using your product again next year. (We used a Dyna Fog 500 portable on the bed of a pick up, sprayed between 5-6pm and did it again the next day between 7-7:30am and had no mosquitoes)"

Dear Mosquito Barrier,
"Thank you for filling my recent order for the Garlic Barrier*. We have had great success with this product in treating mosquitoes. We have ball fields that are close to creeks and the Garlic Barrier keeps the mosquitoes in check."

To Whom It May Concern:
"The Poinsett County Fair Association employed H & H Mosquito Control to spray our fairgrounds during the week of the fair which began on August 16th to help control mosquitoes. They began spraying August 14th and continued through August 20th.
I'm happy to say there were no pests on the mid-way or any other area that they sprayed. We were very pleased with the results in this mixture they used and hope we can continue to do this every year from now on. I personally want to thank both of you for the good job."

Di Maggio's on the Bay
Brewer Capri Marina
Port Washington, New York
"Mosquito Barrier has done more than we could have ever hope for. Our Di Maggio's on the Bay water front restaurant at the Brewer Capri Marina in Port Washington has a 3000 square foot dining deck that is built over Manhasset Bay. Before Mosquito Barrier our outdoor diners would be plagued with all sorts of annoying biting insects. These insects lived under the deck along the water line. They came up to the dining deck via the spaces between the decking. As a result, customers would skip desert and coffee. After we applied one application of Mosquito Barrier our outdoor deck became the most sought after seating for our restaurant. Diners now enjoy a fine leisurely meal over looking the Manhasset Bay, complete with desert and coffee without being pestered by bothersome biting insect.
The garlic scent, though strong while in its container as concentrated, dissipates away in about fifteen minutes after application. Although the manufacture recommends application every thirty- (30) days, we apply it about twenty- (20) days. We attribute this to the constant washing of the outdoor deck, furniture and the like. In so much as we are on the water, the fact that this product is one hundred (100%) organic is a bonus. We are happy to inform our customers that the biting insect population can be eradicated with an application of an organic product such as your Mosquito Barrier.
And lastly Kevin, we would certainly intend to purchase Mosquito Barrier again."

"I have a lawn care company and have been using Mosquito Barrier for about 4 years. My customers don't see mosquitoes after I spray, but my formula is a bit different from yours and here it is: For every 50 gallons of water, I add one gallon Mosquito Barrier and one gallon of Soybean Oil and one quart of rubbing alcohol that I get from Wal-Mart. I love the results."
"...We have had a terrible problem with large numbers of hungry mosquitoes biting our fans and players. This was reducing our attendance and we don't like that...fans stay away because of the mosquitoes. We just started using your garlic product and it is amazingly effective and we look forward to using your product all of next season and increasing the attendance and comfort of our devoted fans."

"My name is Laurence Murphy, Purchasing Agent for Rockingham Park in Salem, New Hampshire. I was trying to locate a mosquito spray that could be used around humans and livestock. I was very unsuccessful. I was informed of a product called Mosquito Barrier and I purchased a small amount which I used for our thoroughbred racing season (from June thru October). Rockingham Park has a pond located in its infield of still water and 7/8th of a mile turf track which is watered daily and a mile dirt track which is also watered daily. We sprayed the garlic product and I can honestly say that we at Rockingham Park had no mosquito problem at all last season."

"...the real excitement of using Mosquito Barrier came from the use of it around the back patio. We enjoy sitting on the patio late in the evening but couldn't because of the mosquitoes. Now we can sit out there and do and love it."
White River KOA (Kampgrounds of America)
Interior, South Dakota
"After having applied several gallons of Mosquito Barrier to our 31 acre campground, I am pleased to report excellent results on our previously voracious mosquito population. All we have to do to verify that the mosquitoes are indeed still in season is to walk along the White River, which is adjacent to our property, and therefore not sprayed. They are still there, and in droves, while being virtually eliminated here."
Manager - Beacon Point Food
"We rent our location from the Town of Stratford here at Beacon Point along the Housatonic River where it meets Long Island Sound. We have a beautiful view of the river but we abut salt marshes. Our customers come to our restaurant for our good food and a good view of the boats in the river.
Several weeks ago when we opened there were millions, no billions, of mosquitoes at our site. Customers would buy their food and then run into their cars to eat it.
Three weeks ago the Town sent the Mosquito Control officer to spray our area. He told me he was using something new, called Mosquito Barrier. I was concerned about spraying any chemicals on our site but he assured me that Mosquito Barrier only contained garlic juice. I smiled and he sprayed.
Since that initial spraying he has come back to do it again. I can now say that we have a few mosquitoes, very few. Our customers are happy and they enjoy our food under our tent. I am very satisfied with the efforts of the Town of Stratford in controlling mosquitoes without the use of chemicals. My customers also appreciate this fact."
Dirty Bird, Inc. (Crop Dusters)
"We have an annual Lions Club Fish Fry here in Grady and consume about 1800 to 2,000 lbs of catfish, plus all the hush puppies and cold slaw and watermelon a person can eat. The event takes place in a pecan grove about 2 miles from our landing strip. It's held the 3rd Thursday in August. My duty is try to eradicate mosquitoes who love to feast on us as we feast on the fish. We have sprayed almost everything but nothing works.
One day I read about your Mosquito garlic juice and decided what the heck! We sprayed 12 hours before D day. The next day I asked about the "skeet" problem and all said they did not remember. Wow!"
"...I decided to give Mosquito Barrier a try. I was in the front yard with my family when I decided I had swatted enough mosquitoes and mixed up just a pint and sprayed it around the yard. I began at one end of the yard and by the time I reached the other end there was no sign of residual smell or insects. I never did have a problem with them after that. Love it."
Matanuska-Susitna Borough, Alaska
"Last summer we experienced the largest population explosion of mosquitoes that I can remember. We sprayed the Mosquito Barrier over several acres and it lasted us for 2 months which was great. I used it primarily on turf areas and plan to use it next year on campsites."
"I wanted to let you know that I have been using Mosquito Barrier for two summers now and it is the most wonderful product on the market. There seems to be nothing that can control mosquito's here in Florida but, your product actually WORKS. We have been able to enjoy the wonderful outdoors without being bothered by insect bites. I have told everyone about how great it is and we could never live without it now."
"Early this summer (2002) I bought 4 gallons of your garlic and a commercial type sprayer that I tow with my lawn tractor. I have six acres that were loaded with mosquitoes. I sprayed a little over a quart about 10 weeks ago and haven't seen a mosquito since. At this rate I think I must have purchased about a four year supply of garlic. My question is "will it stay good that long"?"
(Editors Note: This is very unusual to use so little for such a large area and have it that effective, we recommend using 25 ounces of Mosquito Barrier per acre.)
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan
"My family and I live on an acre of lake front property...creating the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. We have lived here for over eight years and have tried everything to combat these pest insects without success - until we used your garlic extract product. It is truly incredible. Where we once were swarmed by mosquitoes at sunset we can now remain on our beach and enjoy the evening with our family. (I believe it has also discouraged the Canada geese that used to descend on our property and leave behind signs of their visit). Thank you."
Balch Springs, Texas
"...Last year we had a major mosquito problem and sprayed our lawn, shrubs, trees and got rid of the mosquitoes and did it again this year. We sprayed around a 400 unit apartment complex which back up to our property and received over 70 phone calls from the tenants thanking us for this. They are now able to go out in their yard without the problem of mosquitoes."
Youngstown, New York
"Last year, in the early spring, I was telling my Dad, who owns and operates a small golf course in Pennsylvania, about the mosquito problem I have to deal with here at my new home in New York. Dad told me about this garlic product of yours that is used on golf courses for mosquitoes. I called your company and ordered a gallon to try. I sprayed everything using a garden hose sprayer. I sprayed it around the middle of July and did not feel the need to re-spray the garlic before the end of Summer. It's nice to have such an effective product that is so safe..."

"Howdy from North Carolina,
Let me begin by thanking you for your wonderful product. With so many advertisers promising everything and delivering basically nothing, I am sure you can understand why one would be skeptical about a product which says it will form a mosquito "barrier" for a very small cost. We are 100% satisfied after using Mosquito Barrier for the first time in a very mosquito infested, rural, swampy environment. As soon as you all open on Monday, July 7th, we will place our order for 1 gallon. Thank you, thank you thank you!"
"I can't thank you enough for giving me back my yard! Last year the mosquitoes drove us back into the house every evening, just when we were ready to enjoy the deck and pool area. One application of Mosquito Barrier and no more mosquitoes! We have had a few very heavy rains in the past two weeks since application and still no mosquitoes! I will recommend this product to anyone who will listen! Thank you again!"

"Just wanted to write you a little note letting you know how wonderful your product, Mosquito Barrier has been working for us. In May we had a problem with ticks. My 3 year old daughter woke up with a tick on her head that was already implanted into her scalp. Then about one week later I had a tick. Then the final straw was my daughter woke up again and had three ticks, two on one ear and one in the other ear. That morning I got on the Internet and found your site. We got the Mosquito Barrier for the tick problem we were having. We sprayed four weeks ago, and have had no signs of any ticks. Now we aren't so much afraid to send her out side to play. Not only has it improved our tick problem it has helped the mosquito problem also. We have a lot of foliage and the mosquitoes are so bad even in the day time, that last year my daughter couldn't even go outside in the day time for fear of the West Nile Virus. Now we are able to be outside with both our children anytime without the mosquitoes eating them or us alive. With having young children you aren't suppose to use any repellent that contains DEET. Of course I have both sets of grandparents having a fit every time the kids went outside to play for fear of them getting bite by a tick or mosquito. Nothing else has worked up until we have used Mosquito Barrier. I highly recommend this to anyone with a tick or mosquito problem. We will keep using it and have recommended it to several people. Once again, thank you for your product and letting us enjoy our summer without the added fear of diseases."
God Bless You,

"I bought Mosquito Barrier last year and I just wanted to tell you how much I like the product. As a dog breeder I am very concerned about using chemicals on my lawn to control fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. I live in a heavily wooded area and I did not see one flea or tick on my dogs the entire summer. Then along came West Nile Virus and two people in our area come down with it and I felt such relief that I had sprayed for fleas and ticks and got the extra bonus of treating the mosquito population. I have recommended it to breeders, dog owners, and people with children because it is natural and completely safe.
Keep spreading the word...I know I will."
