Mercer County's Brood X Cicada Problem
Additionally, millions of Brood X cicadas appeared in Mercer and other nearby counties in 2013. Emerging every 17 years, cicadas slowly suck on tree roots. Brood X varieties arise from their underground cavity already sated with most of the energy they need to breed. According to biologist Keith Clay, “Brood X cicadas don't harm evergreen trees or leafy, non-woody plants. But isolated shrubs, broad-leafed trees, and trees with soft, woody branches are vulnerable.”

A Few Historical Pest-Centric Mercer County Facts
Created in March of 1800 from part of Allegheny County and named for Scottish soldier and physician, General Hugh Mercer, this virgin forest territory was included in the Last Purchase from the Six Nations Indian tribes in the Treaty of Fort Stanwix of 1784. The land was intended as compensation to Revolutionary War veterans. Settlement began slowly in the 1790s but because the terms of the treaty were not accepted by the Seneca (Cornplanters) tribe, attacks on settlers was a common occurrence until General Anthony Wayne, a former Brigadier General in the Continental Army and a close friend of George Washington, defeated them in 1805.
Early Settlement, Industry and Pestilence
The native-Americans lived off the land by hunting, farming crops and fishing. They fought off the insects that invaded their trinity of crops: corn, squash and beans with rudimentary tools and ideas. They believed the insects were a plague brought upon them for offenses committed against primitive gods. They could only pray and observe when the insects came, and which crops they devoured. They responded by growing more than they needed hoping, often in vain, that the surplus would balance the loss incurred by insect invasion.
Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, world travel opened up the every day life of the once cloistered farmer living in rural areas. From across the ocean, Sir Francis Bacon helped to introduce scientific measures to combat pests. New ideas, materials and cultures expanded conventional knowledge of pesticides. A fumitory known as tobacco proved to be an excellent natural pesticide due to its content of toxic nicotine.
The towns of Mercer County were established between 1796 and 1798. Even in its earlier days, both free blacks and slave populations lived in the area. The Underground Railroad played a significant role in Mercer’s historical development. Distilleries and grist and sawmills distinguished the early economy. Coal and iron mining developed after the openings of the Allegheny River Canal in 1834 and the Erie Canal in 1844. Industry was further galvanized in 1864 with the advent of the railroads. The first steel mill opened in 1887; the Sharon Steel works in 1896. Today farming comprises 42% of the county’s land and oats and sheep are its two largest agricultural commodities.
