Arboband boards are an environmentally friendly and effective way to protect your plants, vegetables, and trees from damage caused by pests. The product consists of a pack of adhesive boards which are placed on, or nearby plants. The insects are attracted to the boards purely by their colour, alleviating the requirement for any chemicals or active ingredients. Upon contact with the board, the pest will become stuck to the adhesive coating. The product is suitable for use in the home, greenhouse, or outdoors. Target specific species by selecting the corresponding board colour:
Targets Whiteflies, Aphids, Fungus Gnats, Thrips, Flea Beetles, and Cherry Fruit Flies.
Targets Thrips, Leaf Miners, Whiteflies, and fungus gnats.
Targets Pear sawfly, Apple sawfly, Plum sawfly, Yellow sawfly, Cabbage root flies, and Swede midge.
The boards can be installed using string or hooks; nearby or on the plant – this ensures that no matter the situation, your plants can be protected.
Each pack contains 5 boards.
Each Arboband board is coated with a non-drying, water-resistant coating. This makes them suitable for use in damp environments.
Arboband boards don’t contain any harmful chemicals, making them suitable for organic growing
