There are many effective and witty methods of dealing with unwanted guests in the garden.

Pharmacological (biological) properties and effects

Brush handle the lower part of the tree trunk
Thus, creeping pests can not climb into the crown of the tree. This method is good and helps from aphids, because, as you know, it is transferred to the ants and placed on young twigs.
By the way, even the spruce spruce branches did not help to protect against mice. Rodents made mink in the snow near the trunk and ate the bark to the full height of the snow layer. And the snow we had that winter fell deep, more than a meter.
This spring, all eaten I bark oiled water emulsion Creolin, and after the SAP flow has been already Creolin in sunflower oil.
This autumn, preparing for the winter, again smear Creolin trunks and skeletal branches of all its seedlings. And then I’ll tie the branches with a rope and tie them to the pegs to avoid snow damage.
