Processionary Caterpillars

EMPS have had a few requests on the processionary caterpillar as a lot has been written recently about them, some of it well informed and some of it complete rubbish. EMPS are here to put a few things straight . An article in Wikipedia quotes “it is one of the most destructive species to pines and cedars in Central Asia, North Africa and the countries of SOUTHERN EUROPE”. This is no joke, not only are they destructive to the tree’s they are also poisonous and extremely dangerous to pets and small children as well as presenting a lesser threat to adults. The article goes on to say “Around the beginning of April, the caterpillars leave the nests in the procession for which the species is known. They burrow underground and emerge at the end of Summer. High numbers of adults are produced in years with a warm Spring.” A couple of things to note here. The article states that we should expect the “processions” to start towards the start of April, yet we know that they are seen as early as February here. It goes on to say that high numbers of adults are produced in years with a warm Spring. Here in Mallorca we have had an unseasonably warm Winters resulting in these pests starting their cycle even earlier. Let’s not kid ourselves this doesn’t mean they’ll be gone any quicker, it means the cycle will last longer.

EMPS are happy to offer processionary caterpillar and nest eradication implemented by our qualified technicians. The best solution is one treatment in Autumn before the sap rises during the winter. This treatment lasts a year and eliminates the problem. By calling us NOW to arrange an appointment for the earliest dates of sept/October you will be guaranteeing the safety of children’s pets and trees. September is the month that the male caterpillar arrives to the pine trees to prepare his nests. However much we love nature and try our best to our best to be organic these little critters are very harmful to our loved ones and our open spaces.
