Size: approx. 1.75m.
This Bayer Garden product is an easy to use pest barrier for fruit trees. These non-drying adhesive, pesticide free grease bands are suitable for the organic gardener.
They effectively trap winter moths and other insects before they get up into the tree canopy. The product provides protection from winter moth caterpillars and other crawling pests such as ants.
Inside the pack you will find a ready prepared greased band approximately 1.75m long and some brown wire to tie the greased band onto the tree. The band should be fixed well above the level of any surrounding vegetation to ensure that it is not bridged, which may allow insects to avoid the grease.
Use the band around any supporting tree posts. To save fruit from winter moth caterpillars apply in autumn and keep in place until the following April. To trap earwigs and ants as they try to climb the trees apply in summer.
