Oak Processionary Moth has been recorded again on Chorleywood Common. The caterpillar hairs are a danger to human and animal health if disturbed. Do not touch or get close to the caterpillars or their nests and seek urgent medical attention if you experience an allergic reaction like a rash or breathing difficulties. We advise all dog walkers to keep their dogs on short leads.

Chorleywood Parish Council are in the process of identifying nest sites and arranging their removal and destruction.
