Very sticky and not the easiest to apply, as the instructions did not seem to line up with the design of the tape. Once the bands were on, my hands needed a good wash and it's not easy to get the glue off. That aside, it is very sticky, so will undoubtedly do its job. You get a good length, which was plenty to do three fruit trees and two stakes (the packet reminds you that if you are using tree stakes, then the tape needs to be applied to the stakes as well).

there is really nothing more to say about a utilitarian product like this except that it was perfectly satisfactory and the service was excellent

1.75m doesn't seem to go as far as I thought it would. However good sticky product and well wrapped around tree. Strong string provided.

It works - what more can you say.
It is basically fly paper on a roll and it is horrible to get on your skin and so wear gloves

i was very pleased with the product i can understand why no bugs can get past it it's very very sticky so maybe it might be a tip to wear some protective gloves when applying to the shrubs

This doesn't appear to be as good as the brand I used last year on my fruit trees. It is half the width and did tear easily! It was very sticky, so should do the job! I didn't have any grub damage last year so I will see how this one perfoms!

It works as it should - and arrived very promptly.

(1) if you want Ants off your tree
(eg If you use this in combination with ladybird lattes to control aphid problems)
Blow off (like candles on a cake) the ants that are "cut off" and remain on the tree just above the barrier (as they can't move on without crossing the band). Otherwise they just keep going back to the branches, so not really off the tree

(2) really check again
Check again after a day or so. What was a tight fix a day ago might have loosened in parts. Only takes a few tiny parts of the band to lose contact with the bark for ants to start tunnelling your barrier-glue-band.

The grease band is very sticky and gets all over your hands, I used some long grass to clean my hands after attaching each band. The string provided has a thin wire within and can be twisted to attach the band top and bottom. The band is as described and should stop insects. For ease of installation cut each band longer than needed to temporarily hold the band in place for whilst attaching the string.
