The Major Pests of Westmoreland County
The following are just a few of the many pests indigenous to Westmoreland County. They all require the aid of professional pest management experts and exterminators»
Termites, Cicadas, German Cockroaches, Oh My
In addition to the typical cast of annoying characters, such as termites, cicadas, American and German cockroaches, stink bugs, ants, mosquitoes and stinging insects, this county is plagued with destructive insects such as Emerald ash borers and three Asian pests; namely, the aphid-like, wooly adelgids, ambrosia beetles and long-horned beetles. These insects threaten the future of the trees in Westmoreland County. Sirex wood wasps join this invasive bug team that devastate ash, oak, hemlock, pine and maple trees.
The Emerald Ash Borer Beetle
The Emerald ash borer beetle invasion is so acute in Westmoreland County that a quarantine has been has been issued prohibiting residents to transport firewood outside the borders. This calls for immediate action from the expert exterminators at Pestco, who specialize in all areas of pest control. Perhaps most important is their Green Shield Certified X-Termi Green program, which provides additional sustainable protection without pesticides, which would otherwise harm the already endangered trees in the area.

Ligonier Valley Bathing Beach and it’s landmark swimming pool, restaurant, bar and pavilion have been around since July of 1925. The beach’s stellar reputation as a place known for its music, swimming and entertainment has endured down through the decades. In its early days, there was a dance pavilion with live bands, which attracted local singers to perform. Dean Martin, who was a towel boy, performed here with the local bands, and a quiet young man named Perry Como also sang here very early in his career.

Some Historical Pest Trends Of Westmoreland
The family of William Penn purchased the territory that formed Westmoreland County from the Six Nations Iroquois Indian confederacy which included: Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Seneca and Tuscarora Indian tribes. The county opened to settlers in April 1769 and was officially founded in 1773.
The name, Westmoreland, derives from an historic county in England. Also known as the Star of The West, 18th century immigrants, mostly German and Irish, in search of freedom from religious persecution, bestowed this moniker on the county because they considered it to be a guiding star as they traveled from eastern Pennsylvania towards their ultimate destination of the untamed western territories.
Early Settlers Battled With Indians and Pestilence
Pest control is at least as old as agriculture. For the early settlers, farming and hunting sustained them. Their lives were tumultuous, dealing with hostile native-American Indian tribes and the pestilence that threatened their harvests and food crops. Infusions of nicotine, herbs and arsenic comprised the only pest repellant available at the time, as powerful pesticides were still many decades away.
The Botanical Pesticides Of Pyrethrum And Derris
Slowly, with the advent of industrialization and the mechanization of agriculture, particularly in the late 18th and 19th centuries, two botanical pesticides, pyrethrum, which comes from a certain species of Chrysanthemum and derris, a plant native to Asia, became widespread among farmers.
