Vitax Tree Bands 2 x 1.75m
Tree Bands protect fruit and ornamental trees against winter moth caterpillars, ants and crawling insects like earwigs.
Apply in early autumn and keep in place until early spring for best results. Tree Bands should also be re-applied in May to September to help trap earwigs, ants and other crawling insects.
- Pesticide-free and non-hazardous
- Treated with a non-drying adhesive which effectively traps pests
- Ideal for organic gardening.
Trees are susceptible in the winter to attack from winter moth caterpillars which lay their eggs ready to emerge in the spring. Once hatched, the caterpillars feed on the foliage, flowers and young fruit.
In addition to winter moth caterpillars, ants and other crawling insects will cause damage to the tree if not stopped in their tracks.
Due to the adhesive on the Tree Bands, it effectively traps these pests before they can lay their eggs and cause damage.
Simply secure the Tree Bands well above the ground to prevent bridging. Attach to the smoothest part of the trunk, but ensure it is clean and free from any loose bark or moss before securing.
Tree Bands can also be used around supporting tree posts. One, four metre length is sufficient to protect 10-12 average-sized fruit trees.
