Would a sticky tape around the base of my plum tree help stop sawfly



No. If you're sure sawfly's the problem (and not Plum Moth, much more common) the info in the link below might be of interest

One of the best forms of sawfly control is organic insecticidal soap you can pick up at any garden center. I mentioned "organic" because it breaks down into its basic components after 10 days and won't harm the environment or unintended creatures.
