Cynipid Gall Wasps And Cicadas
Often mistaken for locusts, these large red-eyed insects while living underground for years, survive on the sap from tree roots. Cicada Broods XIV and X have been spotted in Bedford County and will probably appear again in the near future. The cynipid gall wasp attacks oak trees, and although there are many varieties of these insects, most reach maturity within two years. There is no known pest control for these wasps and natural enemies usually contain the population.

Fort Bedford Museum
Built in 1958 by local business leaders to commemorate the 1758 construction of the original French and Indian War fort, this museum houses more than 4,000 artifacts from Bedford’s fascinating past. For 57 years, the museum displayed its entire collection in rows of wood and glass cases in the tradition of most contemporary museums. In 2015, as the result a five-year renovation plan, exhibits, collections and management practices have become modernized and cases of wood and glass have given way to fascinating interactive displays.
Koontz Coffee Pot
In 1927, David Berton Koontz built the 18-foot high, 22-foot wide Coffee Pot lunch stand right next door to his gas station in the hopes of attracting customers. It was made of bricks and covered in sheet metal. In 1937, it became a bar with a hotel built behind it but in the 1980s it closed for lack of traffic and languished in neglect. In 2003, The Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor bought the Coffee Pot and, aided by a state grant, moved it from its old location to the Bedford County Fairgrounds and restored it. Today it serves as a museum for the Bedford Fair, and an eye-catching stop for travelers on the “Father Road” also known as the old Lincoln Highway.
Omni Bedford Springs Resort
Located in South Pennsylvania’s scenic Cumberland Valley, this 2,200-acre, four-season resort was built on the site of old Bedford Springs, where some two hundred years ago, a legend was born with the discovery of eight mineral springs that promised health and rejuvenation. Today, these springs have become incorporated into the treatments offered at the world-class, 30,000 square-foot Springs Eternal Spa and a spectacular, restored 100- year-old golf course. The resort also features an elegant aquatic center, five restaurants and 25 miles of scenic hiking trails.

Some Historical Bedford County Pest Trends
Named after the English Duke of Bedford and created in March 9 of 1771 from part of Cumberland County, the once Indian territory was settled in 1728 and was known as Bedford Village. The early settlers were mostly German and Ulster-Scots (Scotch-Irish). The terrain and resources of limestone-rich valleys were ideal to the German farmers and the mountains provided the Ulster-Scots with the same sense of seclusion they had known in their homelands.
Bedford County has a rich and colorful past. During the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion, it served as President Washington’s headquarters and the infamous Supreme Court case involving the pro slavery Dred Scott decision was planned at the Bedford Springs Hotel, which also served as the summer residence for President James Buchanan. Its location places it at the halfway point along the Turnpike between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh.
The county is perhaps best known historically as the location of Fort Bedford, an important 18th-century French and Indian War Period fort built and garrisoned by British troops under the command of Colonel Henry Bouquet. This 21,000 square foot, pentagon-shaped structure was of classic military design and typical of the period when British forts were constructed on the early American frontier.
Early Settlement, Industry and Pestilence
For the early farmers of Bedford County, bugs of all kinds worked their destructive ways into the grains, seeds and foodstuffs they gathered, consuming and contaminating them. They had little to combat them save their folklore and their ingenuity. Picking pests, such as the corn borer, off maize one by one, was laborious and involved many people. The settlers found some respite with classical biological controls, which concerned the importation of natural predators to combat pest populations. This technique along with migratory birds that traveled from field to field and ate many types of insects, helped to stabilize infestations to a certain degree.
Rye, used often for whiskey, was the county’s major crop until 1860, after which general farming prevailed. Dairy production flourished after 1930. Today, one-third of the land is farmed.
