A Few Cameron County Historical Pest Trends
Created in March of 1860 from sections of Clinton, McKean, and Potter Counties, this once Indian land was ceded by the chiefs of The Six Nation Confederation for white settlement at the Treaty of Fort Stanwix in 1784. It was named for U.S. Senator, Simon Cameron, who was known as the "Czar of Pennsylvania" because he was one the most powerful political bosses in state history. The county seat is Emporium, which is a Latin word meaning market or trade center.
Although the names of the tribes that occupied the region before the Six Nations are lost to history, evidence of their presence is everywhere. Archaeological findings include: wigwam chimneys, Indian cemeteries, stone axes and arrowheads made from brown quartz, which is not indigenous to this region, suggesting mysterious origins of these early people. These early inhabitants were hunters and gatherers, who relied on wild game, grasses and cereals for their sustenance.
Insects, particularly weevils that fed on grain, constantly besieged and threatened crops. For the ancients, they were a plague visited on them by angry gods, but they fought back as best they could. In some cases, they roasted insects and consumed them as a source of protein. They planted other crops in the hopes that the insects would devour them and leave the others alone. Obviously, this was a tenuous practice. Migratory birds traveling from field to field ate many types of insects and helped to stabilize their populations.
This county’s soil is adapted to produce all the grasses and cereals, but farming never developed on large scale because of flooding. Leather, iron, lumber and wood products were the principal manufacturing industries here until 1924 when the Sylvania Corporation, manufacturers of radio tubes and electrical products, was established in Emporium.
The Bucktails and The Civil War
This regiment of sharpshooters, which was also known as also known as the 42nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, was comprised of volunteers who served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. They were so named for "for their tradition of sticking buck-tails on their hats, and this regiment was created not long after the firing upon Fort Sumter in April of 1861. During this turbulent time, farmers relied largely on classical biological control to deal with pestilence. This involved introducing natural insect predators to control insect populations. After the Civil War, a new pesticide known as Paris Green was introduced. This arsenic paint pigment was effective in eliminating invading crop pests.
