OMRI Listed for certified organic use. Garlic Barrier is made from 99.3% Garlic Water and .5% Citric Acid.
Garlic Barrier can be used in farm, home gardens, for lawn care, around pond edges. It is completely safe around people, pets, animals and fish. Garlic Barrier is made from a strong liquid garlic concentrate that has more oil, so it does not have to be mixed with a "spreader-sticker" like the gallon size. When diluted with water and sprayed on garden plants or ornamentals, it will keep insects off.
Just spray it on your plants about once a week. The garlic odor diminishes in about 30 minutes as the plants absorb it, so people are not bothered. Garlic Barrier travels through the plant systemically, protecting roots, stems, leaves, flowers and fruit. It does not change the taste or smell for humans or livestock, but insects can't stand the natural sulfurs absorbed from the garlic. Insects that do come looking for a meal or a place to lay their eggs are repelled for 1-2 weeks, depending on the insect and conditions.
