OPM is an invasive species which has health implications to trees, humans and animals. The caterpillars have tiny hairs which can cause itchy skin, rashes, eye and throat irritation and occasionally breathing difficulties in both people and animals. These hairs collect in the nests and are so tiny they can be blown about by the wind. You must not attempt to handle the larvae caterpillars yourself, or disturb their nests.

Advanced Tree Services specialises in OPM nest removal and are the main contractor for the Forestry Commission for the control of Oak Processionary Moth.
