Description Delivery Returns Reviews
The Defenders Fruit Tree Grease Band is a poison free, organic gardening friendly way to protect fruit trees, such as apple, cherry and plum trees, from insect pests such as ants, earwigs, caterpillars and other crawling insects such as the codling moth.

The grease band just needs to be secured to a tree trunk, using the twine that is included. This will create a sticky barrier that will trap any insect that crawls onto it.

The bands last at least two months which will cover the most important times of the year - at the beginning of winter, when codling moths will be looking to climb into a tree to lay eggs; and summer, when ants and caterpillars can be at their most active.

175cm length of band is supplied, so that multiple fruit trees can be protected.

Dimensions: L175 x W10cm
