Processionary Caterpillars

Hairy, crawling "MONSTERS" The Processionary Caterpillar

It’s that time of year again; now the weather is beginning to warm up to warn pet owners of the dangers of the “candy floss” white nests that have appeared rapidly in the fir trees above our heads!!

This is the nest of the PROCESSIONARY CATERPILLAR and they arrive in their thousands!! – They are dangerous to humans too but because dogs & cats are inquisitive& like to nosey about on the ground sniffing out what’s new – that is when pets get themselves into trouble.
