I've been trying to find out if Mosquito Barrier is a pesticide or not. I found a gov. website that lists exclusions, if a product is a food product and doesn't have any other active ingredients it is exluded from being a pesticide. Does this sound correct? I'd like to spray MB in New Hampshire and Mass. Thank you.

I looked at the website and it's stated that MB is exempt from the Insecticide and Rodenitcide Act. But, it would be best to look into your state regulations on the matter. It's a whole new ballgame when/if you try to apply commercially.

Generally in NH if it mitigates, repels, or kills, an insect, whether organic or synthetic, they look at it as a pesticide.

NH laws are some of the most restrictive in the nation...

We are failry tough here in CT. but our rule is, if it has an EPA reg. #, then it's a pesticide. If it doesn't, then it ain't.
