Additional tips that assist in repelling mosquitoes and ticks.
1. Get rid of all standing water, even the smallest amounts. Drain everything from flower pot saucers to eaves
Spray Mosquito Barrier 24 hours after rain and 48 hours before it is forecast to rain again. Cut the grass before
spraying. Keep grass on the shorter side. Turn off sprinkler systems 48 hours after spraying. Clean up excess organic
debris, such as leaves. Keep gutters in good repair.
2. Shake the mixture very well.
If you have standing water or very ‘hard’ water we recommend:
Mixing 30ml of Mosquito Barrier per liter of water; add an equal amount of vegetable oil (canola oil) and a little unscented dish
soap, about 15 ml, to make everything blend.
If adding soap and oil be very careful not to spray on non-porous surfaces as they may become slippery until dry.
3. Spray: Start spraying from the area you wish to protect then work your way out and away.
Important: Make sure to spray the grass wet and spray the undersides of foliage. Insects love the bottom side of
Spray all grass, shrubs, plants not just the perimeter of the property. Be sure to include shady places such as under
porches/decks, beneath the house, even spray sides of house (test for staining first) & porches. Spray wood piles as
well for ticks
Note: Spraying wood siding/decking may cause odour to last longer than a couple of hours.
Spray into trees up to about 3-4 meters. Spray the shorelines of creeks or ponds (mosquitoes also breed in mud). Take
note of extra mosquito activity when spraying certain areas. These areas need to be inspected and dealt with.
Best spraying time is early morning or late in the afternoon 1 hour before sundown as there is less wind at this time
and the sun is not at its highest peak.
Ticks: Start applying in spring and into June when nymphs are most active.
5. Use at least 30-40 ml of Mosquito Barrier per liter of water. You may use more. Many of our professional
spray people use 40 to 60 ml of garlic per liter of water. This does not harm plants or animals and it will work
If infestation exists, double up the amount of Mosquito Barrier. A second application may also be needed for
control but wait at least 4 days before reapplying.
If you still have some spray material left over after spraying your yard, continuing your spraying until your mixture is
completely used up.
To keep ticks off horses, cows and other grazers: Mix 50-60ml of Mosquito Barrier with 1 liter of water. Apply to bottom
half of animals tail, legs and torso.
For overnight cleaning we suggest using mild soapy water.
Do not store in sunlight and do not let product freeze as Mosquito Barrier will last for years if not fully used.
