Any number of insects want to get to your trees' foliage. Some want to feast on the greenery and fruit, while others are searching for a sheltered spot to mate and lay their eggs. All of them are damaging to trees' health in the long run and can be devastating to fruit production in the short term. One of the best ways to control these type of pests is the relatively low-tech practice of applying a wrapping around the trunk that is coated with adhesive. These wraps will keep any insects from crawling up to the foliage. It will also stop those insects that are poor fliers as they hop up the trunk.
- Traps insects, but will not capture birds or small animals.
- Adhesive is non-toxic and can be removed from hands/skin with vegetable oil.
- Remove and replace wrap when it is covered with insects or debris.
- Extra adhesive can be added at any time (Sticky Stuff Adhesive).
Suggested Uses: Use to prevent crawling insects from getting to your tree foliage to feed, mate and lay eggs.
