When going organic for a green lawn and garden, some people new to growing are worried about the overall damage that can be done by birds, other mammals and various insects. Many natural ways of treating your planting area do exist but one base treatment has stood above the rest no matter the size of the planting area. From small lawns through to commercial organic cotton crops,the base treatment used is called Garlic Barrier.
Garlic Barrier was created by the Garlic Research Labs, Inc. in Glendale, California. The product is a concentrated garlic extract liquid that is mixed with water for spraying lawns, gardens and crops as a pest repellent. The garlic used for the extract is the most potent form of garlic available, the variety of which cannot be found in the local grocery stores. For example, one gallon of Garlic Barrier mixed with water can be used as a repellent on twelve acres of crops and up to five acres of orchard trees. The strong and pungent garlic order begins to dissipate in around thirty minuets and can be effective as a barrier for up to fifteen days.
Types of pests and other animals that could damage your organic lawn, garden or crops are listed as follows. Each one listed as be proven to work through user experience and has been also been documented by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Research Center.

When using the product with household pets, you cannot spray over the skin but rather have to put the garlic into the animals food. Recently, the Sustainable Agriculture Research for Education conducted a study for the United States Department of Agriculture in which Garlic Barrier was added to the food of sheep forde -worming and was found effective.
