Product Information

The tree trunk is the main thoroughfare for may pests to attack fruit trees and the use of tree grease provides a simple and effective means of monitoring pest activity by trapping them in their path.

Vitax Fruit Tree Grease

  • Easy to use - simply brush-on
  • Prevents wingless female moths climbing trees to lay eggs
  • Use to protect fruit trees against the Winter Moth and Mottle Umber Moth in late October to early December
  • Protects against the March Moth in early spring
  • Spring applications of insecticide should be made to neighbouring untreated trees when wingless moths trapped on the grease indicates an infestation

Directions for use:

For Tree Grease to be fully effective, a complete barrier must be formed. Choose a suitable position on the tree trunk, at least 45cm/18" above ground level but below the lowest branch and remove any loose bark. Using a stiff brush or spatula, form a ring approximately 10cm/4" wide around the girth of the tree making sure that the tree grease is worked into any cracks or crevices. Replenish if necessary to maintain stickiness.

When to Apply
  • Apply grease in autumn September/Early October and re-apply in February
