Time To Prepare For Banding To Save Trees

Share Article

With spring and fall cankerworms, winter moths and gypsy moths pupating in the ground, now is the time to prepare to prevent them from climbing when they emerge in the fall. Envirometrics Systems USA Inc produces the BugBarrier Tree Band® to easily trap these pesky bugs as they climb the trunk.

Attractive sticky traps now american made.

A natural phenomenon is taking place at the base of many trees around the country.

Caterpillars, especially gypsy moth, fall cankerworm and winter moth, are pupating, morphing into adult moths that will climb up the tree and lay their eggs so the next generation of caterpillars can continue their destructive task next spring.

This cycle can be interrupted and in some cases stopped, even by those who don’t want pesticides sprayed on their properties. Instead, apply the BugBarrier Tree Band®, a completely pesticide-free and pheromone-free adhesive banding system that is registered with the EPA as a “mechanical pesticide.”

This attractive, uniquely-designed banding system consists of a dense, flexible fiber barrier and a film barrier with peel off protective backing. The adhesive faces the tree, eliminating unsightly debris. It is so convenient that you can install and remove it in five minutes or less, and nobody has to touch the adhesive or bug carcasses.

In addition to gypsy moth, fall cankerworm and winter moth, the BugBarrier Tree Band is also effective against the spring cankerworm, providing you with a year round market. Envirometrics Systems USA packages the BugBarrier Tree Band in 30 foot and 250 foot kits.

Landscape contractors and arborists have been using the BugBarrier Tree Band successfully for more than 15 years.
