The Tubex Nature™ Vole Guard offers a biodegradable vole guard to protect young trees from small rodents and strimmers.
Tubex Nature™ Vole Guard is our biodegradable vole guard to protect young trees from damage caused by small rodents, such as voles and mice, designed for hard-to-reach areas where collection isn’t possible.
Tubex Nature™ Vole Guard is a small twin walled wrap with a vertical slit that provides a natural overlap with the tree trunk and expands as the tree grows to prevent strangulation. It creates an effective barrier against fatal vole and mice attack, such as bark stripping, as well as mechanical operations such as strimmers. Vole Guards can be used for a wide range of planting stock and site conditions, but are commonly used in overgrown and ancient grassland conditions, where voles are found.
Tubex Nature™ Vole Guard Product Features
Vertical split – expands as the grows to prevent strangulation and creates natural overlap
Twin walled construction – minimising weight and maximising strength
Nested – For more efficient transportation and management around site
Expands as tree grows
Vertical slit provides a natural overlap with the tree trunk and expands as the tree grows to prevent strangulation, while creating an effective protection barrier.
Biodegradable in situ
Tubex Nature™ is made from bio-based materials derived from sugarcane, corn & starch. It is externally tested against ISO 17556 to show soil biodegradability, and independently tested to show biodegradation on soil at ambient temperatures.
Tubex Nature products can be left to biodegrade in situ and will, over time, start to degrade and breakdown into water and CO2 through a microbiological process.
Externally tested against OECD 207 & 208
Robust twin-walled construction tested to perform with an expected 3-5 years service life, offering protection against small rodents, strimmers and herbicides.
