The pine processionary is one of the most destructive species and the urticating hairs of the caterpillar larvae can cause harmful reactions in humans and animals.
Pine Processionary control can be carried out mechanically using traps or biologically using a product based on a bacterial preparation. Butterflies can also be trapped by mechanical trappings. Treatments are realised at the level of the trees (pines) and the process can be used in green spaces. Both mechanical and biological treatments, are compatible with the life of other animal species, with plants and with humans.
