The Cicada's Destructive Effects On Green County

Environmentally speaking, and according to Bill Wentzel, a retired forester from Greene County, a major pest and threat to hardwood trees such as young oak, white ash, sycamore, hickory, maple and apple trees, is the cicada, which sucks on the nutrients of tree roots for 17 years before emerging, reproducing and then dying. These and other pests find their ways into the trees and forests of national parks and commercial landscaping that businesses often spend a portion of their annual budget to plant, design and maintain.

Greene County Historical Pest Trends

Created in 1796, from part of Washington County and named for Revolutionary War General Nathaniel Greene, this county was formed in order to benefit small farmers.

To this day, forty percent of the land is in farms. A territory blessed with natural beauty and resources, the region included lush, fertile valleys, rolling hills and uplands, and water from the tributaries of the Monongahela River and Wheeling Creek. The elusive Indian mound people, of whom little is known, occupied the county for centuries before the white settlers came. They left behind their mysterious burial practices and an agricultural legacy native-Americans practiced for many centuries.

Ancient people were mystified by the presence of the insects such as the corn borer and the squash beetle, which decimated their crops of corn, squash and beans. They believed angry deities had cast the pestilence upon them. Insects like the corn borer and the squash beetle were extremely destructive, as their larvae fed on germinating crop seeds and often tunneled into the stems of new plants. Rodents, such as rats and mice, contaminated granaries, devoured newly sown plants and spread disease.

These early hunters and gatherers resorted to natural means to control insect populations, as commercial pesticides were still many centuries away. They tediously went into the fields and picked the insects off their crops. They placed them in wooden baskets, roasted and consumed them as a source of protein. They planted trap crops (usually radishes) with hopes the insects would feast on them and leave the others alone. Migratory birds helped to stabilize insect populations, eating all kinds of bugs for sustenance during their long flights.

Early Settlement and Industry

Early settlers from Scotland and Ireland trickled into the county after Indian hostilities subsided and The Whiskey Rebellion had past. The first permanent white settlement is believed to have been the Swan-Van Meter-Hughes party from Virginia, in 1767. In 1785, Albert Gallatin established a glass works factory on the banks of the Monongahela River. Agriculture and mining in the form of natural gas wells, bituminous coal mining and wool production, beginning with the breeding of Merino sheep in the 1820s, sustained the county’s economic development.

Greene County Has A Noble History

This region’s rich and colorful past is manifested in its historic villages, rural landscapes and seven covered wooden bridges, some of which are very old. The county has 42 sites identified by the National Register of Historic Places. It is home to the nation’s oldest continuing agricultural fair, which was first held in 1865. Other local events, such as the Covered Bridge Festival, attract many tourists to the region.
