A very sticky substance made of castor oil, natural gum resins and vegetable waxes. Prevents climbing insects from reaching foliage, buds and fruit. Tightly wrap a piece of stiff 3" wide paper around the trunk a foot or two off the ground. Tape this “sleeve” to itself but not to the tree. Smear Tanglefoot on the paper. (Applying Tanglefoot directly to bark could damage the tree.) 15 oz spreads a 2–3"-wide band over 14' of paper. Note from Baystate Organic Certifiers: Baystate Organic Certifiers indicates that it is allowed with restriction. Prevention must be used first.
