22. June: Oak processionary spinner
For several years, this species has been found throughout Europe in parks, gardens and in the woods. At this time of the year, unfortunately, there is also the possibility to find them at Familypark, because we have oak trees.
As every year, we started to take action against this type of caterpillar already at the beginning of the spring.
Unfortunately we can not completely rule out that nevertheless some animals survive. They can cause allergic reactions such as itching, but are not dangerous to healthy people.
Should you see these caterpillars in the park – please do not touch them or crush them. Please report immediately to a member of staff, we will then remove the caterpillars properly.
