The most common pest that affects a large number of pines in Spain: the processionary

What annoyances or problems can the processionary infestation cause?

For adults and children The biggest problem generated by this pest is when it comes into contact with our skin, eyes or mouth. Any contact with the worms of this pest or their detachments, can cause symptoms such as: hives, extreme itching, skin rashes and even the appearance of reddish welts. On the one hand, this contact can occur when the worms are still in the pine and give off black hairs that can affect us if we pass under a nest. And, on the other hand, contact can occur when the worms of the processionary are on the ground moving, and we touch or step on them carelessly.
For pets Pets are the most affected by the processionary, since we cannot warn the animals of this danger. That is why, when the processionary comes down from the pine, it is very likely that pets will come into contact with it. Contact of pets with this pest causes effects similar to humans: swelling, irritation or itching. If these symptoms are observed, it is best to visit a veterinarian and not touch the affected areas. To keep your pines healthy and free of this pest, from Raíz Verde we recommend having the advice of an expert who can choose the appropriate processionary treatment and carry it out in the most effective and definitive way.

Methods for the treatment of the processionary

Spray gun

The objective of spray spraying is to impregnate the pines with phytosanitary product as much as possible. The spray gun is very effective in this task, since its application angle is very wide and allows a great diffusion of the product in just a few movements.

Pole use

We use this method to treat the taller pine trees, as the gun cannot cover the entire length of it. The pole tool allows us to reach the highest branches and the tops of the pines, distributing the product evenly throughout the specimen.

Injections or endotherapy

Contrary to the previous methods, this technique is based on the direct application of the product inside the pine. To do this, a small hole is made in the trunk of the specimen through which a certain amount of phytosanitary product is injected, which acts against the pest from within.

In the Processionary Treatment in pines with a height greater than 15 meters, the aforementioned spraying methods will not allow the entire specimen to be reached. In these cases, at Raíz Verde we use a basket truck or a lifting platform to be able to reach the necessary height and carry out the fumigation correctly and efficiently. Before carrying out any pruning or felling work, it is important to eliminate pests before doing other work such as a pruning in height, and thus avoid other infections in the garden and take care of the health of people, workers and animals.

If you see processionary nests in your pines, do not hesitate to call us. We also offer the service of its felling and removal.
