UK’s first suction & incineration combi system to eradicate OPM infestations
In 2019, we developed and launched an innovative, market-leading Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) solution. It’s exceptionally effective, significantly safer for operatives and environmentally friendly.
The caterpillars of Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) are pests of Oak trees that pose a real threat to public safety; tiny hairs shed from older caterpillars – which are commonly blown around in the wind – cause skin rashes, eye and throat irritations, and even breathing difficulties if inhaled.
Having been accidentally introduced to England in 2005, OPM infestations have become increasingly common in recent years – especially in London and the South East of England. The pests are now subject to a government-led programme of survey and control to minimise population, spread and impacts.
