Dealing with Ragwort

Dealing with Ragwort
The best way to deal with Ragwort - leave it to the professionals! A hoard of Cinnabar (Tyria jacobaeae) caterpillars feeding on Ragwort.

The Ragwort on the reserve had thousands and thousands of these little things devouring whole swathes of this much misunderstood and villified plant.
