Fruit Tree Grease Band - 1.75m

Code: SP1046
Fruit Tree Grease Band - 1.75m
Fruit Tree Grease Band - 1.75m

Many ornamental trees, deciduous tree leaves, blossom, fruitlets, and shrubs fall subject to the extensive damage done by winter moth caterpillars, affecting crop yields and quality, with severe attacks leaving plants weak. A traditional way to prevent this is to use these effective grease bands, which trap wingless pests and prevent them from climbing up the trunks of trees before they can reach the branches, lay eggs, and begin devouring.


  • Protect fruit and ornamental trees from female winter moth caterpillars, ants and earwigs
  • Poison-free - suitable for organic gardening
  • Stays effective for up to 2 months
  • String included - simply tie the grease band to your tree
  • Cut to size - will be sufficient to treat 5 fruit trees of approximately 30cm circumference

This pack allows you to apply a single application to five trees with a circumference of 30cm, allowing an extra 5cm on each strip to overlap. If your trees are bigger or smaller then the amount you will be able to protect will alter accordingly.

How To Apply

Using the string, tie around the tree trunk under the lowest branch and 50-80cm above the ground. Make sure that the band overlaps, so that there is no gap for the insects to exploit. To save fruit from winter moth caterpillars apply the bands in autumn and keep in place until the following April. Apply in summer to trap earwigs and ants as they try to climb the trees.

"The band did tear a small hole when unfolding as the grease had stuck the band together. Otherwise OK."

"Product's fine although was surprised that the depth of the bands was less than bands I've ordered previously from other sources, but I'm sure they should do the job."
