A traditional remedy:
For the preparation of glue bands. Acts against winter moths, bark beetles, aphids, nut weevils, ants (which spread aphid colonies) and many more.
Application and dosage method 2:
use a caterpillar glue band. Measure the appropriate length and spread a 7 cm broad and 2 cm thick layer (a thicker layer might drip) of glue onto the band. The glue band has to be fixed tightly to the trunk. Before attaching the glue band, the bark has to be smooth. Cracks may be filled using clay or grafting wax. This way no insect is able to pass by underneath the glue band. Also side shoots and stakes have to be treated with a band. Caterpillar Glue – Green stays adhesive during frost temperatures. Drip proof up to 40° C. Occasionally check glue bands and remove stuck leaves etc.. Exchange damaged glue bands. Keep out of reach of children.
Period of application:
apply glue to fight off winter moths in the period from end of September to to the beginning of October. If required, repeat treatment in February/March (also acts against aphids, woolly apple aphids, pale brindled beauties and nut weevils).
