I've used this a few years ago. It does work but i found that it lasts only 3-4 weeks tops. There is a very Distinct garlic smell and be prepared to clean those tips and screens as this is a very dirty product.

IMHO you all are missing the boat by not selling Mosquito Mist Systems. These are installed just like or similar to Irrigation systems only with High pressure pumps on a timer that sprays a Light Mist of Pyrethrin. You get a big Bump up front for installing the System and a reoccurrencing maintenance account. I am not going to do all the work for you so Google Mosquito Mist Systems.

The only thing with the misting systems is that there is a lot of build up on upper end painted metal fences, also there is no way to treat the lawn areas on big property just the house and beds. I still think spraying is the best way to treat plus I can get 20 ft into tress

I wanted to pull this post back up to see if anyone is still offfering this service or if everyone stopped/out of buisness. Still wondering if the garlic barrier would work and the smell...also concerned about drift from backpack misters if appling talstar or similar....thoughts? I could sell it as a vampire barrier as well.....

We stopped using Mosquito Barrier. Worked fine during dry weather, but rainfall kills it IMO. Then we started using the "beet stuff" cuz they said it was a good overall product......... never again, cuz it's worthless. Doesn't kill skeeters, doesn't last. my 2 cents

p.s. still got some we will never use

Does anyone know the recommended amount of talstar of using a backpack mister..I can not find the amount on the label. It says .33 to 1 ounce per gallon of water to treat 1,000sq ft. That sound like a rate for a backpack sprayer not mister/fogger. At that rate to treat one acre shrubs/lawn I would be using almost 43.5 gallons of dilluted product ..

In my opinion, it lasts a short time (1 dry week). If it rains, effectiveness is dramitically reduced below 1 week.
It's not a product that I can honestly recommend.
