Tree Tanglefoot is a sticky material used to repel insect pests. Spread on the bark of trees to control gypsy moths, canker worms, climbing cutworms, and ants. Made from natural gum resins, castor oil, and vegetable waxes. Do not put all the way around plant trunks – it will girdle and can kill plants. Apply vertical strips or strips or a paper ring.
