Will Mosquito Barrier Harm Bees?

DH and I live in a retirement community. I have a little garden around our cottage planted with perennials, shrubs and annuals. I don't use any chemicals and have lots and lots of bees, hummers and goldfinches on my flowers, especially zinnias.

Unfortunately we are infested with mosquitoes and the staff isn't interested in doing anything about the problem. I can't go outside without getting bitten and I only go outdoors in the daytime.

So I ordered Mosquito Barrier which is spread on the lawn to get rid of mosquitoes. It is mainly garlic. I was wondering if the spray would hurt any bees that nest in the lawn or garden?
