For the last few days the tree has been infested with millions of caterpillars who are also creating a web. They are excreting at a rapid rate and the excrement is covering the pavement and property. This infestation is now moving onto my property (and neighbouring houses) and into my house. It is disgusting. The tree on the pavement has not been cut for a long time and also overhangs the car and driveway as well as the road. The infestation is getting worse and causing great distress and needs clearing as soon as possible.
Thank you for your report, it will be reviewed by the appropriate team.
