I was vaselining the apple trees this week (not some bizarre sexual fetish), but , as I'm sure you will probably will be aware, to allay the attentions of the wingless moth caterpillar, active from March & October which climbs up tree trunks and lays its eggs in apples and ruins the crop , so a hearty slapping of the old vaseline around the trunk girth, forms about a 5 inch eco friendly sticky back exclusion zone.
