Do you know how lasting is the poisonous effect of the hair of the Pine Processionary caterpillar


I have a house in Gers France in which I made a vegetable garden down wind of a fine stand of pines that I now see have the caterpillars nests at the top of the 12 metre high trees. No doubt the hairs lodge in the trees and fall to the ground after they process to the ground in March, should I be concerned that they will be dangerous for, say, a month?
