I've heard that if you put Saran Wrap at the base of the tree, the ants won't be able to climb up it.Is that true?

I have never heard of this, but it would be easy to give it a try. But it seems to me that ants can crawl up just about any surface, so it doesn't seem like Saran Wrap would be much of a deterrent.
