We discovered a thing in the top of my pine.
First and from a distance we thought that’s a hornets nest or wasps. Butt sadly it’s more worse. It’s the nest of a eastern pine processionary. They are awful and poisonous, because they have urticating hairs what are dangerous for peeps&pets. They will come out of the nest, where they hibernated, between avril and may.
We tried to remove it immediately and my dad brought a ladder to climb on the top of my pine.
I came running to support him, but as I saw the pitiful ladder thingy and the approx. 6m (~19ft) tall pine I must laugh. Honestly dad, that was not your best idea…
Even my dad, who raises all things to question, specially if it comes from me or my mom ( for her I understand, he is sceptical), noticed that this plan can NOT work.
Now we are pinched in the ass, because we have no idea, how we could remove the darned pests. The weisenheimers at google say, you have to wear a protection suit and a filter mask and you immediately have to burn the nest immediately when you removed it. We have no protection suits, but my dad wore gloves and a cap to conserve his hairstyle. Better than nothing, huh? They also suggested a flame thrower to reach the top of trees. I have no idea where we can buy a flame thrower for this tall pine, maybe at eBay? Or at a gun runner?
Mom said we call the firefighters, butt as I mentioned before, my dad can’t find a consent with my mom’s suggestions and ideas… so he borrowed a long ladder, removed the root of evil and burnt the pests. We smelt the stench, because he forgot to close the doors… now mom got urticating hairs too and dad got a major rocket. And to cover the niff with green apple spray was a shit idea, dad, now it smells like you would smoke apples in a bong. But you will get d-appled instead of stoned…
While they were busy to kill each other I redecorated my bedroom and built a comfy nest like the pester pine moth thingy…he, he, he…
HAVE A MOTH-FREE FRIDAY ALL
