    • Hi. The caterpillars are poisonous. The ragwort they feed on is poisonous to livestock and all attempts are made to eradicate it. Unfortunately this has seen numbers of the cinnabar moth decline drastically. I believe a lot of other insect life depends on this plant for survival too. There we go again messing with the balance of nature ;-(
