Garlic used to purge pests

TAYLOR, B.C.—Folklore says a bulb of garlic will repel a vampire, but a northwestern B.C. community believes the pungent vegetable is the answer to fighting a smaller but equally blood-thirsty pest.

The District of Taylor has approved a pilot project to apply an environmentally-friendly but potent garlic solution to several areas around town in hopes of wiping out mosquitoes.
