Processionary Moth in Hodgemoor

Message from Forestry England…

“I wanted to let you know that Oak Processionary Moth has been found at Hodgemoor. This is a potentially hazardous species that can cause skin irritation and breathing difficulties. At present there is only one confirmed site on the edge of the woodland and the risk is very small to the public. Contractors will be making several site visits to treat the affected tree and conduct follow up visits.

“Can you please share the attached leaflet with your members; this provides greater detail on the moths and what to look out for.


Regards, Rob
