Keep Gypsy Moths Off Your Trees!
The V9 TREE BELT is a safe and humane means of protecting your trees’ foliage against caterpillars. Simply wrap the V9 TREE BELT around the trunk of any possible host trees to prevent caterpillars from climbing up the tree to reach the foliage. Harmlessly repel caterpillars and other crawling pests without chemical-based insecticides. Once caterpillars come into contact with the V9 TREE BELT, they will receive a light shock and fall to the ground. Check trees daily and remove caterpillars from the ground safely by using gloves and placing them in soapy water.

STEP 3: “FIXING THE END” Attachment at the end of the fence can be attached to the tree stem using the provided screws. Keep the endpoint as close to the belt as possible.
