Tree bands were installed last fall to catch cankerworm moths. These bands need to be removed in March. To remove the bands, use scissors to cut through the green band. You can then unwrap the white fiber pad and throw away the materials. The sticky substance on the traps can gum up scissors, but Goo Gone works well to clean scissor blades.
If you need assistance removing tree bands, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to maintain our community’s grant status with the city, we will need to report volunteer hours spent removing the bands. If you’d like to report on approximately how many wingless moths you caught, it is like extra credit!
