OAK PROCESSIONARY MOTH (OPM)

With recent sightings of OPM in Hampshire, the public and businesses are being warned about the threat the caterpillars face to both people and the trees. OPM can be dealt with through manual means, or by spraying with pesticides. If you need to manage OPM through pesticides then you must be qualified to do so.
 
We can provide the necessary training and assessment to allow the use of misting sprayers to deal with this pest - call us for more information on 0162 882 7317.
 
Further information regarding Oak Processionary Moth is available from the Forestry Research website at Oak Processionary Moth
