About this book

Language: German

The oak processionary is a moth for which large populations and mass reproduction have been reported throughout Germany. The butterfly caterpillar is dangerous for humans and animals because from the 3rd larval stage it develops barbed stinging hairs. In this book, the authors present the oak processionary moth in detail on the basis of its biology, occurrence, distribution and typical characteristics. Wolfgang Rohe, Lars Schwarz and Denis Ekarius have also developed a new method of combating the oak processionary moth that works entirely without poison. This procedure is described in a very practical way for implementation in urban areas. A practical book for foresters, forest workers and nature conservationists as well as for all those who want to avoid contact with these dangerous moth larvae by recognizing them in good time.

Summary in German:
Der Eichenprozessionsspinner ist ein Nachtfalter, für den in Gesamtdeutschland starke Populationen und Massenvermehrungen gemeldet werden. Die Raupe des Falters ist für Menschen und Tiere gefährlich, da sie ab dem 3. Larvenstadium mit Widerhaken versehene Brennhaare entwickelt. Im vorliegenden Buch stellen die Autoren den Eichenprozessionsspinner anhand seiner Biologie, dem Vorkommen, der Verbreitung und typischen Merkmalen ausführlich vor. Wolfgang Rohe, Lars Schwarz und Denis Ekarius haben zudem ein neuartiges Verfahren zur Bekämpfung des Eichenprozessionsspinners entwickelt, das ganz ohne Gift auskommt. Dieses Verfahren wird sehr praxisnah für die Umsetzung im urbanen Bereich beschrieben. Ein Praxisbuch für Förster, Waldarbeiter und Naturschützer sowie für all diejenigen, die durch rechtzeitiges Erkennen den Kontakt zu diesen gefährlichen Falterlarven vermeiden möchten.
