Oak processionary moth:
Warning: Oak trees can be extensively infested by the oak processionary moth. The caterpillar of the oak processionary moth is a health hazard. The stinging hairs of the caterpillars contain a nettle poison. They can also be dispersed by the wind. Contact with the caterpillars can be harmful to the health of humans and domestic animals. Caterpillar dermatitis is particularly common, with the symptoms: skin rashes and redness, slight swelling of the skin, wheals, itching and burning all over the body. If the stinging hairs (which contain thaumatopoein) are inhaled, this can lead to irritation of the mucous membranes of the mouth and nose, bronchitis, asthma or even allergic shock. Even after the life cycle of pupa, caterpillar and moth, the empty webs with their stinging hairs pose a risk over a longer period of time.
Avoid infested oak trees (do not sit near them).
Do not touch caterpillars or webs (never try to destroy webs yourself).
Do not lie or sit on the ground in the vicinity of infested oaks.
Protect your body with clothing (neck, arms).Keep animals on a leash, stay on the path.
Report findings These can possibly be removed professionally with special equipment, endangered areas can be marked.
If you have come into contact with the stinging hairs of the caterpillars, you should change your clothes and take a shower.
Wash clothes at a temperature of at least 60°C.

The lord of the castle, Franz von Sickingen, became the protector of the early reformers and met his inglorious end in the war against the ecclesiastical and secular princes he had attacked.
