Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2753967.

Caterpillars have been identified in all trees directly in fromt of our house, these have now started to live in our hedge and even climb our front door.

My partner is asthmatic and we are concerned with how close they are and how many there are

Can this be looked at and pesticides put down
