This product can be used for making your own sticky traps! Apply sparing to laminated card or board and see what you can catch!

Yellow Sticky Traps for Organic Pest Control: Yellow sticky traps and homemade traps using Tanglefoot adhesives has to be one of the most under utilised organic insect control solutions we have in New Zealand.

The glue is long lasting and doesn’t dry out, it comes in paste or putty form and is really, really sticky and is an amazingly clever tool for your garden.

Tanglefoot and the Yellow sticky traps can be used in many ways; here's just a few.


  • Hang yellow sticky traps in your green house and amongst your garden - you'll be amazed at how many pest insects you catch!
  • Staple yellow sticky traps to stakes in the vegetable garden or amongst your roses (or make your own yellow card and coat with tanglefoot glue) to easily catch aphids, fruit flies and whiteflies. Staple them to sticks first! It is so easy and the adhesive sticky traps last and last!
  • Start early in the season to keep numbers low from the onset.
  • Coat apple sized red balls with the glue and hang in your apple and fruit trees. When insects decide to land on the “ripe” apple, they get caught.
  • Make you own and coat yellow cards (bright yellow) with tanglefoot and hang them in greenhouses or glasshouses, or simply hanging the yellow sticky traps in place where fruit flies (vinegar flies are attracted to over ripe fruit), or out in the garden.
  • Coating sky-blue plastic with glue attracts thrips. So if you have a lot of gladiola damage (streaking flowers) or other plant damage due to thrips then make blue cards are beloved by thrips.

If you get the sticky glue on your hands, use baby oil, or eucalyptus oil to remove. Citrus based desolve products also work well, as do mineral spirits. Keep your sticky traps out of pets reach as well as those little sticky fingers of children.

DO NOT put adhesive garden glues directly on the bark of trees. Always use a tree wrap such as

and put the glue directly on the tape. This tape will last 1-2 years and is easily replaced (the glue hardens up over the winter and needs replacing yearly). The paste can be warmed to soften it and make it easier for spreading.
