Greasebands for Fruit Trees

Greasebands are more effective on younger fruit trees with smooth bark: if your trees are older & have uneven trunks, you will need to apply tree grease by hand.

Greasebands are pest barriers that are used for two main things:

  1. Trapping a variety of female winter moths. These wingless insects emerge from the soil and climb fruit trees in early winter to lay their eggs. When these hatch, the caterpillars eat leaves and fruit.
  2. Greasebands will also trap earwigs and prevent ants from protecting aphids and scale insects, which they farm.

Using Grease Bands against Winter Moth Caterpillars

Full instructions are included with every pack of Greasebands, but put simply the greaseband is cut to length and wrapped around the trunks of your fruit trees in autumn, with the sticky side outwards. The females of a range of winter moths are wingless and crawl up the trunk to lay their eggs. They get stuck to the greaseband and die.

Watch our quick video on applying greasebands here.

Greasebands and Earwigs and Ants

To trap earwigs, ants and other crawling pests, you can apply greasebands in exactly the same way, but between May and September. Each pack of Greasebands contains 5m of tape. In addition to the pack contents you will need a pair of scissors and some garden twine. There is no pesticide involved so our greasebands may be used for organic gardening as well as in combination with other methods of control.
