Spain: processionary moth becomes a danger to dogs – be careful when walking

Processionary caterpillars are on the move again in Spain. Their nests are attached to pine trees, and there is a particular danger for dogs – but also for humans.

So small and yet so dangerous: the caterpillars of the processionary moth can cause violent allergic reactions and can be dangerous, especially for dogs, sometimes even fatal. In Spain*, the pine processionary moth, which attaches its nests to pine trees, is particularly widespread. Walking the dog can become dangerous as soon as the caterpillars leave the nest. At what time of year the caterpillars of the processionary moth become active in Spain, reveals *.

The nests of the processionary moth are easily recognizable: in Spain they hang like white bags on the pines and offer the caterpillars shelter. Danger comes primarily from the stinging hairs of the caterpillars, which contain a protein toxin. If a human or animal comes into contact with the hair, the contact can provoke a reaction with different symptoms. For dogs, encounters with the processionary caterpillar can be fatal, especially if a dog has inhaled hair or gotten it in its mouth. * is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
