The Emerald Ash Borer
The Emerald Ash Borer, a beetle native to Asia, is one pest that was first spotted in 2002 in Michigan. Its spread across the forests of the United States is very scary, for these marauders attack and destroy ash trees. Currently, this destructive invader has been spotted in Lawrence and three other Pennsylvania counties. It is estimated that this insect has destroyed more than 25 million ash trees nationwide. The damage done to the environment and industry is potentially catastrophic because forests serve as a key component to bio-diversity and play a critical role in the hydrologic system. Pest control and maintenance is vital in order to save our forests.

The Buttermilk Falls Natural Area is located in a park in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, near the intersection of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Route 18. The park’s main feature is its majestic, thirty-five-foot waterfall that seems to cascade off the old railroad tracks above.
According to legend, the waterfall was named about 1870 by a group of Civil War veterans who picnicked often in the area and enjoyed their favorite beverage of buttermilk. Owned by the county, this park surrounds other historic landmarks, including the Homewood United Methodist Church, a few old railroad bridges and the remains of Harmony Short Line Railroad.

A Brief Pest-Centric Trip Through Armstrong County's History
Formally acquired from the Six Nations Native-American Confederacy by the “Last Purchase,” of the 1784 Treaty of Fort Stanwix, before the advent of white settlers in 1793, the Delaware (or Lenape) Indians inhabited this region. It was a long struggle to get the new county officially formed and authorized by the Pennsylvania General Assembly. It became a reality in March of 1849, and was given the name, Lawrence, in honor of the hero of the Battle of Boston Bay in 1813, Captain James Lawrence.
Early Pestilence Problems
The pre-historic indigenous American Mound Builders, who occupied Lawrence County long before the Lenape, left their mark, although not as plentifully as in other Pennsylvania locations. These early inhabitants lived off the land as hunters, fishermen and rudimentary farmers. There was little recourse but to surrender to the invading pests such as the Corn Borer that ravaged their corn, squash bugs and cucumber beetles favoring squash and aphids and Green Leaf beetles that destroyed their bean crops. Many believed the infestations were disguised visitations from angry deities.
The ancients received some help with natural pest control from Mother Nature. Invading pests often fell prey to hungry jays and jackdaws migrating from field to field at certain times of the year. These and other birds feasted on a great variety of insects and helped to stabilize the populations. When tobacco was introduced as an additional crop, it was considered to also be a very effective pesticide known as a fumitory. Sometimes, early farmers would go to the fields and pick off the insects one by one, collecting them in baskets and then burning them.
The county seat of Newcastle quickly became an industrial center because of its many natural resources, which included rich limestone quarries, iron ore and coal. Canals arrived in the 1830s and the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1850. Vast numbers of southern and eastern Europeans were drawn to the area beginning about 1875. The 1890s were the “Golden Age of Industry,” for Lawrence became the world’s leader in tin plating. The county also produced hardware, paper, pottery, cement, and linseed oil. There was always farming outside the factory areas and today, 42 percent of the county is farmland.
