Oak Processionary Moth Nest Removal
Once the route of chemical application has been exhausted, we switch to nest removal operations. Our tracked, 4×4 Mobile Works Platform (M.E.W.P) can access rough terrain that may cause difficulties for other vehicles. Our M.E.W.P has no difficulty, and with our trained and professional operatives can adapt to any situation and we have experienced extremely good feedback from works resulting from nest removal as we aim for an additional minimal damage and disturbance. Nest removal work is undertaken using a high suction Type H industrial vacuum where all evidence of nests and caterpillars are removed and self contained within the unit. The bags of the vacuum are removed from site and disposed of using the appropriate methods at a licensed site. As the nests and OPM are defined as harmful waste, we are accredited waste carriers licensed by The Environment Agency. ATS adhere to the correct use of the correct Personal Protective Equipment and we aim for an efficient, environmentally and ecologically friendly treatment unique to the situation.
