Product Description

Easy to use, brush-on monitoring trap Prevents wingless female moths climbing trees to lay their eggs Apply in Autumn (September/October) and renew in February Winter Moths are the scourge of fruit trees. They lay their eggs in tree bark crevices and the resultant larvae and caterpillars - easily recognised by their green colour with pale lines on the side and a darker one along the top - will feed on virtually any tree or shrub and can be a serious pest in apple trees and orchards. Vitax Fruit Tree Grease is the answer. It's a traditional, brush-on monitoring trap for winter moths and prevents damage to fruit trees.

Ideal for 'misshapen, complex multi-trunk systems an alternative to wrap. Apply directly to mature fruit trees. Easy to use with a 1.5 inch paint brush - remember to use an old brush or alternatively use Hot water/washing-up liquid mix to clean/soak immediately after application. Black sticky tar-like substance so be very careful when applying ensuring that only the trunk is painted and not your clothing as difficult to remove. (see attached photo). Combine with a hormone trap in the summer to prevent fruit fly (plum) infestation destroying your crop.

Smeared around the trunk of my cherry tree to stop the ants and it worked a treat. Moreover, I smeared some along the top of the fence and it has stopped cats from trying to get into the nest of a family of blackbirds, so it's a multifunctional product!!

I've used this grease for several years on my fruit tree with no problems at all.

My usual supplier ceased trading last year & I was unable to find any more so I used a ready made sticky band instead. Very difficult to apply neatly & accurately, stuck to everything except the tree - a horrible job to apply.

With the Vitax gease the job is a doddle - fix a dry band around the tree in comfort & accuracy and then slurp the grease on with a spatula or old paint brush.

I'd never considered Amazon as a supplier - a wonderful surprise!

. . .eventually. It is not suitable for young trees but this is not made clear in the product description. So I had to buy some greasebands as well and will keep this product until my trees are older.

This is a thick black sticky grease. I dipped my finger in the tub then smeared it all round the trunks of my small fruit trees. A week later I noticed a number of tiny bugs stuck to it, which were otherwise on their way up the trees ready to reproduce and lodge themselves in the leaves and fruit of my apples!

This is best applied before spring, as that's when the insects are active. It stays on too. Although it has been really windy, rainy and stormy the grease is still there and still sticky. This seems like a great and simple saluting to a buggy problem!

This is a good product, although the tin was a little smaller than I was anticipating! Nevertheless, it is easy enough to paint on the grease with an old paint brush - simply follw the instructions on the tin and you can't go wrong. The instyructions explain clearly when and how to use the graease, which has the advantage over grease bands, in that there are no strings to dig into a new fruit tree if it puts on a growing spree. Word of warning though - do not get the grease on your hands, hot water and soap do not really remove it without the assistance of a sponge with abrasive surface!!

Hopefully this will do the trick, but I got around to buying this a bit too late to probably stop the pesky blighters crawling up the trunk. It needs applying in November, or even October. Anyway, better late than never, I hope. And there is always later this year to apply it again! It goes on easily and is not too messy, but rather than try and clean the old brush I used, (what would I clean it with??? - no instructions about cleaning the brush, as far as I could see) I chucked it away. Got a nice thick (10cm) barrier around the trunk quickly and easily, no mess.

Good product and used before.
The tub is puzzling me as literally half full. Or half empty! Tub is 4 inches tall and product filled to 2 inches.
We have a mature apple tree so enough in the tub to go around it but will need more to apply again in February.
I think the tub needs to be smaller or it should be filled.
