Garlic Spray

Asked July 10, 2018, 12:22 PM EDT

Hi, My neighbor has been using a natural garlic spray in her yard to keep mosquitoes away. Does this spray deter other insects and pollinators as well? It does seem to help with mosquitoes.

Up to now, there is limited research showing the effectiveness of garlic insecticides. But apparently, it is non-toxic to pollinators.
