|Ant and damage to a Redhaven peach.|
|A tub of Tanglefoot (center), stretchy paper wrap (right), and insecticidal soap (left) to deal with my ant invasion.|
|Tanglefoot wrap around the lower portion of the trunk of my Redhaven peach. Notice the ants trapped above the Tanglefoot. They aren't happy. Actually, the least happy ant is the one who is trapped in the upper right portion of the goo.|
We had LOTS of rain the day after I applied the Tanglefoot, but the goo stayed in place. I may need to reapply if we get more rain, but I found it very useful as non-toxic alternative to spraying loads of poison and chemicals over the entire tree to deal with the insects. Now i just need to keep an eye open for aerial invaders!
p.s. Happy Birthday to my recently-retired Dad.
