TC: Pesticide sprayed and branches pruned to curb caterpillar infestation at Jalan Rajah

 Look what caterpillars have done to my car!
Tanjong Pagar Town Council says they have sprayed pesticide and pruned the branches of the affected trees to curb the caterpillar infestation at Jalan Rajah.

In a post dated Sept 16, a STOMPer wrote in saying that caterpillar droppings are always falling from the trees in the open air car park at Jalan Rajah, thus the residents there have to wash their cars daily as the droppings will get stuck to the surface.

In an email to STOMP today (Sept 17), a spokesperson from Tanjong Pagar Town Council says:

"We wish to thank STOMPer for the feedback on the caterpillars infestation at the carpark of Block 102 Jalan Rajah.

"On Sept 14, our contractor sprayed pesticides and pruned the branches of the affected trees.

"We will monitor the situation closely."
