Hello what you need are grease bands if still available ,if not available you could make some,this how we use to make them,take a 4 inch wide strip of brown paper cut to the length of the diameter of the fruit trees tie the brown paper round the tree about 3 feet up the tree  with 2 strings top one half inch down bottom one half inch up  then smear the  brown paper with light grease all over to stop codling moth larvae climbing up or use pheromone traps jezza
