Advice on application
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.
Precaution for use
• Examine the bands regularly to ensure they are still in place.
