What is a hunting belt for trees

This is a mechanical trap that encircles the trunk of a tree. It protects the plant from pests living in the ground. Insects in an attempt to climb to the branches fall into the hunting belt. In particular, this simple device is effective against ants, weevils, whiteflies, caterpillars, aphids, cossacks, flower eaters, fruit mites and other garden eaters.

Hunting belts can be dry, sticky, treated with insecticides — special preparations against insects — or combined. There are ready-made devices in shops and garden centers, and they are easy to install on a tree according to the instructions on the package. Although a hunting belt can be made with your own hands without much effort and expense.

When to install a hunting belt on trees

The best time is the very beginning of spring, when the buds on the trees have not swollen, and the pests have not yet begun to wake up after hibernation. But if you did not have time to catch this moment, you can set a trap later, it will also be quite effective in protecting the plant from crawling insects. For example, the same ants spread aphids in the garden throughout the season.

Depending on the type of construction, the fishing belts need to be periodically removed and immediately replaced or updated by applying certain means. On average, this is done once every 3-4 weeks before the onset of persistent autumn frosts.

What you need to remember when using a fishing belt for trees

  • Set the trap at a height of about 50-60 cm from the ground, so that it does not come into contact with the grown grass and other plants. If the tree is young or low, fasten the belt at a lower height so that it does not reach the first branching on the trunk.
  • If you have pets walking around the garden, do not use hunting belts containing insect repellent chemicals. The pet can lick the trap and get poisoned. It is better to make a dry construction.
  • In autumn, when the cold weather comes, the hunting belt should be removed, thrown into the trash away from the site or burned. Dispose of traps in the same way if you change them during the season.
  • Keep in mind that the hunting belt has drawbacks. Useful insects like bees and bumblebees, as well as birds and small rodents can get into the trap.

How to make a hunting belt for trees with your own hands from foamed polyethylene and glue

This trap can not be removed from the tree throughout the season, but only occasionally update the adhesive layer.

What you will need

  • Foamed polyethylene (damping tape) with a width of about 10 cm;
  • cable clamps (plastic ties);
  • special glue for insect protection;
  • scissors.

How to do

1. Attach a piece of foam polyethylene tape to the attachment point of the future belt — about 50 cm from the ground surface. Wrap the trunk with the material so that the ends are slightly overlapping. Cut off the excess.

2. Wrap the tape blank around the barrel. Secure it with two plastic ties just above and just below the middle. Try to tighten the clamps as much as possible so that the polyethylene fits snugly to the tree.

3. At the top of the belt, apply a generous layer of pest control glue. It should cover the entire circumference and voids between the ribbon and the tree trunk.

4. Then apply another layer of glue in the middle of the fishing belt. There should be a continuous contour around the trunk.

The hunting belt is ready. Periodically inspect it and, if necessary (for example, when drying, sticking a lot of pests or dust), update the glue layer.

How to do

1. Pour about 100 ml of vegetable oil into the container.

2. Place the cloth strips there and thoroughly soak them with liquid.
