We've used Tanglefoot for years on Fruit and Flowering trees - and started using it on all the trees when we moved "South" to NJ. We put a band about 2" wide approximately 2-3' high in early spring. Pests that would climb the trunk and eat the leaves or infest the fruit are trapped.

We also coat red spheres with it, to trap flying insects that would otherwise infest the fruit. It works well - but is getting harder to find. The big box stores stopped carrying it, so I was pleased to find it on Amazon this year!

Tanglefoot is a MUST have for any home owner! I use it on my fruit trees/shade trees/shrubs.

Three steps:

1. 1" wide self-stick foam weather strip around bottom of trunk.

2. Tinfoil pressed tightly around foam strip.

3. Use plastic disposable knife to spread Tanglefoot on the tinfoil. (you might want to use disposable gloves.)

Trap those pests before they can climb the tree and infect your treasured trees/fruit.

Do Not put directly on tree. And be sure to use the weather stripping to prevent critters from climbing up inside the Tanglefoot.

Happy Gardening!

This is some nasty,gooey,sticky,messy stuff ...Squirrels won't be stuck in it in the morning,but they really avoid it after getting it on them on a trip up your fruit tree...or bird feeder. It is NOT POISON or dangerous to pets...but it is squirrel KRYPTONITE and they learn to hate it. No more stolen,nibbled and dropped fruit...wonderful stuff. A bit like handling TAR, I put it on the trunk and lowest limbs(they can jump pretty high) and enjoy the antics as the TREE RATS try to out-wit me. I get fruit and entertainment,what a deal.
Use by itself or with Tangle Guard Paper Tree Wrap to keep you tree 'clean'.

Following tips I saw online for avoiding deer fly bites, I wrapped blue painters tape around an old cap then smeared on tanglefoot. I wore the hat for about an hour doing some yard work. You can see the results. The funny thing is, I never realized there were flies even around me. Worked like a charm!

I had ants ranching aphids in a tree next to my garden. This product put a stop to them in an efficient and environmentally friendly way. Early summer I wrapped blue tape around the base of the tree making sure to there wer no passage for ants under the tape. I then used a disposable knife to apply the tanglefoot. I applied it about 1.5 - 2 inches wides and just on the tape. Later that evening ants could be seen milling about below and above the sticky divide but none were crossing. A few days later no ants.

Early fall I noticed the rain and wind had allowed the tape to loosen up and the ants were once again back at it. I removed the tape covered with tanglefoot and made another tape band that I again covered with tanglefoot and the ants were foiled.

Easy and effective. I would highly recommend.

I spread Tanglefoot on a Solo cup and screw it to a dowel. When we go for walks the deerflies buzz around and stick to the
cup instead of biting us. My record for a 2 mile walk is 174 deerflies. Sweet Revenge!

I was having problems with scales and aphids on my newly planted citrus trees (about 17 trees of various varieties, which includes tangerines, lemons, limes, and grapefruits). While searching for a solution to combat these pests, I ran across a YouTube segment where the guy demonstrated using the Tanglefoot product with flagging tapes to implement an ant barrier for his trees. If not aware, ants develop a symbiotic relationship with these types of pests. The ants harvest and feed on the honeydew that the scales and aphids secret, and for this provide them protection. So, one approach is to get rid of the ants so the natural predators of the aphids and scale (e.g.; ladybugs) can more effectively do their jobs and control these pests.

As mentioned, some of my trees were infested with scales. When I checked closely saw an abundance of ants scurrying amongst the scales and marching up and down the trees. Even notice some aphids waking with the ants down the tree. Not sure where they were going, but the pairs I saw walking, looked a little to friendly for my comfort.

So, I first cleaned up my trees of any insect infestation using either a mild 3% soap solution or a 3% Volck oil solution. Next, I implemented the Tanglefoot barriers using the flagging tape, per the Youtube video.

Its now been about 3 weeks since I pt up the Tanglefoot barrier on all 17 of my citrus trees. I check the trees on a daily basis, and so far there are no ants and scales on any of the trees. Occasionally, I find some aphids on some of the new growth leaves. I take care of those with a quick squirt either the soap or oil solution, and the aphids are dead.
