New Garlic-Based Mosquito Product Registered for Use in Canada

| March 4, 2014

TORONTO - Upper Canada Organic Products,  Toronto, Ont., Canada announced the issuance of the Canadian Pesticide Registration for Mosquito Barrier. The active ingredient is 100% garlic juice. Mosquito Barrier is labeled to repel mosquitoes from outside areas such as backyards, parks and campgrounds. 

In 2006, Mosquito Barrier was the first garlic-based pesticide allowed to be sold in Canada. Recent changes from the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) in Canada required garlic products to be fully registered. 

Mosquito Barrier is made from the strongest non-GMO garlic commercially available. The juice for this product is made by pressing hundreds of pounds of garlic and extracting the juice. Adding less than one percent of preservative, that comes from corn and citrus, makes Mosquito Barrier as close to coming out of the garden as anything on the market today. Mosquito Barrier also has a patent in Canada and the USA relating to the method of repelling mosquitoes from recreational locations using a garlic extract. 

Mosquito Barrier is available from pest control distributors as well as garden centers, retailers and on-line stores. William Anderson, the manufacturer of Mosquito Barrier is relieved the registration process is done. “In the 90’s we were told garlic will never be registered in Canada,” he said. “Good for Upper Canada Organic Products and the Canadian government in getting this done. Also nice to see the Canadian Government does the right thing by making this available for Canadians.”
