One Natural The Other Not So. This year The mosquitoes have been super bad Neighbors in the ground pool needed a new liner been waiting 5 weeks while about 2 feet of standing water has turned Bad Breading them THey finally came today. His gutters also are Clogged holding water and Breading. He is a Doctor and does not take advise that well. 

I ordered Mosquito Barrier from Amazon sounds like it may help. Sounds better than wiping out the Bug Population in my Yard.  ( TICKS ? )

You will need 6-8 oz of permethrin 10 per gallon. You can use the petroleum base permethrin as long as your yard doesn't run off directly into a water supply.  Otherwise, there is a water based mix.  Don't use it now if you have clover or other flowers blooming in the grass, or you'll kill off all the bees around.  Kills ticks, but I don't think mosquitoes.  Seven makes a granular that kills ticks, ants, and other insects, that is also safe for gardens.  Got it at walmart.

There is ZERO chance that "Mosquito barrier" product works.

Globally, there has been more $$$$ spent on mosquito research than literally any other insect on planet earth, we're talking hundreds of millions of dollars spend over a 100 year time period.  Governments, militaries, world health organizations, colleges and research foundations, etc....... 

They've spent decades trying to solve this problem, so if you really believe that a little garlic juice dissolved in water is "effective" at repelling mosquitoes, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you!

They finally got the next door pool pumped out the workers were swarmed with Mosquitos Big Time.  they were going to pump it out on the side lawn but I made a suggestion they could not refuse you could actually see the Skeeters coming off the water as it was being pumped out in the Street. Oh, I gave them Skin So Soft to apply when they were first attacked.

Not sure if other counties / towns have it but here in Sussex we have a mesquito control. Everyone on my street has been calling and bitching to them how bad it is and in the past few weeks they have come out and sprayed our street plus put some kind of mesquito traps out in a few yards...seems to be working, it's been much better.

so did this stuff work???

The Verdict is in YES did a parameter spray along the property line. and the Population was almost completely gone but for a few attracted to a Kerosene Lamp on Table.  Smelled like an Italian Restaurant but soon dissipated. I called Monmouth County Arg. Extension and ask if it was a BS Myth. The answer was no Besides the residual Oder left to discourage them but short-lived it is the Enzymes in the garlic that kills them when they eat it at their source. The Heavy rains did not help either but a repeat spray did.  But how can you prevent and ill winds from repopulating they also said prevention is the best way.  The biggest culprit is Gutters Ground Clutter from Mulches to Composts. The best is when all your Neighbors have bug Zappers attracting them away from you.

guess i need to get some i use either the cutter or bayer sprayed with garden hose but everytime i spray i start to feel horrible after wards guessing its the chemicals i tried a mask but no help....

I sprayed Ortho and Beyer but you have to do it under calm close to night conditions when the Air is heavy. Stay away 24 hours but that also kills on contact, not a Preventative.  Plus even the Pro applied is only effective in the areas sprayed and The winds for the Surrounding areas cause what I call Fly Bys.
