The invention relates to an improved limed bandage or ring for fruit trees and the like, which is intended to prevent caterpillars and other pests from ascending the trunk of the tree.

The limed bandage or ring according to the invention consists of two strips of material, such as paper or the like, of different widths, each of which strips is provided on one side with a continuous layer of adhesive material, such as lime for catcning caterpillars, the layers of adhesive material being of equal width and extending longitudinally.

along the central portion of the strip, and the strips being arranged one above the other,

in such manner, that the two layers of ad hesive material register exactly with one another, whereby a double band is formed which has no adhesive material on its ex ternal surface and the wider strip of which projects at its two longitudinal edges beyond the narrower strip at a suitable distance therefrom over its whole length, so as to render it possible to aiiix the broader strip in 2 one working'operation by means of its two longitudinal edges. The double strip formed in this manner may be rolled up and pre served in a cardboard sheath.

A limed bandage or ring. constructed according to the invention, is illustrated, by way of example, in the accompanying drawing. in which:

Fig. 1 shows a. tree trunk to which the broader strip of the limed bandage has already been aflixed by means of string, the figure illustrating the operation of drawing oil the narrower strip.

Fig. 2 shows the limed bandage in elevation. and

from adhesive material, and by means of which the bandage is tied on to the trunk of the tree. As soon as the operation of aflixing the winder strip has been completed and the person handling the bandage has both hands tree, the narrower strip Z) may be then drawn off and aiiixed in similar manner to the next tree trunk'by binding it with string around the borders which are free from adhesive material. The double strip above described to is rolled up and preserved in a cardboard sheath or box.

The limed bandage, according to the invention, has the advantage that two limed strips are providedin the form of a doublets strip, in such manner as to render it possible toafiix each bandage in one working operation, whilst entirely preventing the hands being rendered dirty during the operations of handling the said bandage.
