tree pests - oak processionary moth caterpillars on a tree tree pests - oak processionary moth

Scientific name: Thaumetopoea processionea

Common name: Oak Processionary Moth


Oak Processionary Moths were first discovered affecting trees in the UK in 2006 in London. They have since spread further across the county. The name derives from the caterpillars which move in a procession. They can be found in very large numbers on each tree and have devastating effects on their host tree. The caterpillars defoliate the trees stripping all the leaves off. The hairs on the caterpillars also pose health risks to humans.

Hosts: Oak Trees.
