Re: Processional caterpillars

My gardener came, poured petrol on them, and they just shrivelled and died. Easy! Result !

Re: Processional caterpillars

Out walking, I spotted a similar cluster on the ground over which someone had poured some black gunge - looked like black oil, made a huge mess on the road but appears to have killed them all.

Blow torch sounds about right though.

Re: Processional caterpillars

Does anyone know how to safely get rid of them after they have left the nest?

Re: Gum Tree on Do Farol?

Went there a couple of weeks ago. Unlike the previous 32 owners, the current team have actually spent some money tarting up this really beautiful setting.
