OAK PROCESSIONARY MOTH  
OUR SERVICES 

“We strongly advise people not to touch or approach the caterpillars or their nests because of the health risks posed by the hairs. Pets and livestock can also be affected and should be kept away as well…” Forestry Commission England. 

SPRAY TREATMENT 

During April-May whilst the caterpillars are young and out feeding in the canopy, we provide a spraying service where the entire canopy of the Oak tree is sprayed with an approved pesticide specifically designed to target caterpillar. The tree is then re-sprayed 7-10 days later. The pesticide is not hazardous to other wildlife or to the tree itself and provides a good success rate. 
 
 

NEST REMOVAL 

The most effective time to remove OPM is between June & July when the caterpillars have settled into their nests and are less likely to be feeding in the foliage. Our team wear full body PPE to hand collect each nest, which are then safely removed from site and disposed of in our hazardous waste bin to be dealt with by a licensed hazardous waste specialist.
