- Codling Moth
- Elm Leaf Beetle
- Cherry and Pear Slug
- Worms and Weevils
Codling Moth – Apple, Pear, Walnut, Quince and prune fruit varieties. Codling moth can complete up to three life-cycles during a single season in Australia depending on location and weather considerations so apply Tree Guard from flowering until mid summer.
Other crawling insects – use as required.
Application – Wrap masking tape or packing tape around the tree trunk, about 30-50cm above ground level. Use a spatula to smear a thin layer (about 2mm) of Tree Guard on to the entire tape. Using some type of tape will make it easy to remove and dispose of once the tape is full of insects. Replace tape and repeat the process as required.
One 500gm tub will cover approximately 12 tree trunks that measure about 30cm in diameter.
