Tanglefoot

The much waited for large shipment of Tanglefoot for tree banding has arrived here at the store. We have three container sizes: 1 , 5 , and 15 pounds. We also have all of the other necessary supplies – shrink wrap, insulation, putty knives, gorilla tape.

Tree Tanglefoot Insect Barrier is a sticky, caramel colored paste made from natural gum resins, vegetable oil and wax. When applied as a continuous band around the trunks of shade trees, fruit trees, plants or vines, it creates a barrier that effectively entraps or repels destructive climbing insects.

The combination of ingredients is non-toxic to insects, humans, pets and the environment. Tree Tanglefoot works strictly in a mechanical fashion. It is listed by the Organic Material Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic gardening.

Check our our informational video made by the Renfrow’s crew on how to protect your trees through banding and apply the Tanglefoot.

The Town of Matthews is strongly encouraging citizens to proactively band so the infestation does not get out of control. The date to be sure and have trees banded is right before Thanksgiving for the best results.
