Arborists reminded of OPM hazard

Recommended Posts

In the main thou' I hope OPM is a regressive issue as I dont think the climate here suits them , however it is up to LA's to deal with them effectively as cross-boundary infestation is the main hurdle , K

Encouraging to see the BBC helping out with public information regarding OPM.....

Engagement with tree owners and the public is the future of living with this pest.

 

 

 

The trees we manage with OPM are within the yellow circle on this latest FC map

This years spraying across the site starts in a week or so

excellent - maybe a shame to use chemicals, but they do look nasty bugs, better to intervene

 

maybe on a smaller scale - climbers with PA1/PA6 knapsack application
