Especially in the autumn, the frost-veined females become active and climb up into the fruit trees. The caterpillars then eat the leaves in spring and affect the tree. Fight frostbreaker They are environmentally friendly and effective with self-made glue rings that are placed around the trunks.
That's how it works:
- Cut out about ten centimeters wide paper stiffeners or plastic strips.
- Thereafter, they must be coated with a tough non-drying adhesive. Here, the females catch the frosts and can not crawl into the treetop to lay the eggs.
- The glue rings must be laid out by the end of September. In the meantime, caterpillar glue is already available for this purpose.
- It is also important that the glue rings are removed again in December and disposed of in the household waste. Otherwise, the females can also lay the eggs on the trunk.
