Tangle Guard Tree Care Kits
Tangle Guard Tree Care Kits are an effective way to rid trees of crawling insects who must reach the tops of trees in order to feed, mate, or deposit eggs. Such insects include cankerworms, gypsy moth caterpillars, army and tent caterpillars, ants, obscure root weevils and pecan weevils, tussock moths and climbing cutworms. Some of these insects are wingless females. Some of these insects are wingless females. Some may have wings but do not fly. It is a part of their life cycle that they crawl up the trunks of trees to mate and deposit eggs. And others of these insects simply crawl up the trees to feed on their buds, leaves and fruit, consequently devastating the tree.
Tangle Guard Tree Care Kits include everything you need to successfully protect your valuable trees and reduce future populations of these pests.
Each kit contains:
- A 3-foot section of Tangle Guard Tree Banding Material and fasteners
- A 6 oz tube of Tree Tanglefoot Pest Barrier.
- Ample for banding several small diameter rough-barked trees.
Banding your trees is a two-step process.
First, fasten Tangle Guard Tree Banding Material (or some other waterproof material) around the tree trunk. This material provides a non-absorbent application for Tree Tanglefoot Pest Barrier. It also facilitates easy removal of Tree Tanglefoot Pest Barrier after the insect season. Once the band is in place, the Tree Tanglefoot Pest Barrier can be applied. As the insects climb up over the sticky bands, they become trapped without escape.
Best of all, the action is strictly mechanical --no pesticides or harmful chemicals are involved.
