The Major Pests of Armstrong County
Pests common to this county that may require help from the professional exterminators at Pestco include: cockroaches, termites, fleas, ticks, bed bugs, and spiders. Although many may first attempt to apply home remedies to the situation, in most cases of infestation, this usually culminates in giving the pests more time to multiply and wreak destruction.
The Brown Marmorated Stinkbug
Agriculture has always been a strong industry, heavy on dairy farming and a very valuable mushroom crop. One of the biggest threats to mushrooms is the highly destructive Brown Marmorated Stink Bug. This invasive creature was always a nuisance in this county but in the last year or so, their numbers have skyrocketed and they are now considered a major threat to Pennsylvania agriculture. Experts are scrambling for solutions and the knowledgeable exterminators at Pestco are always on top of the latest innovations in pest management. Rid your business of any stinkbug infestation »
Why Have Stinkbug Populations Increased In Armstrong?
According to Greg Krawczyk, an entomologist at the Penn State Fruit Research and Extension Center in Biglerville, PA, stinkbug populations have dramatically increased because they have had no natural biological controls, such as predators and parasites, which would serve to keep their population in check. If stink bugs are invading your business, or you have any other pest-related challenge, our teams are standing by — (412) 252-5200.

A Brief Pest-Centric Trip Through Armstrong County's History
For aboriginal people living in this region when the world was young, life centered around hunting and farming, the cultivation of crops and the storing of food stuffs through the colder months of the year. There was always a need for pest control but not always a means to effectively do it. They did the best they could, over planting crops in many instances to compensate for expected losses.
The Ancient Mound Builders
Apart from the indigenous population of native-Americans, there were other early inhabitants of this region of which little is known. They were a race of men known as the mound builders and while they have left behind no written record, their circular earthen architecture remains a baffling enigma. It is believed these early people were tall and athletic, and some two years ago, a giant mound found in the region uncovered 49 skeletons, some of which were more than 8 feet tall. Archaeologists surmise they were they were driven further south by hostile Indian forces, most likely the Delaware Indians.
Formation of Armstrong County
Created on March 12, 1800, from parts of Allegheny, Westmoreland, and Lycoming Counties, the county is named after an American civil engineer, John Armstrong, who was a delegate for the state of Pennsylvania in the Continental Congress and later served as a major general in the Pennsylvania Militia during the Revolutionary War. Kittanning was named the county seat in 1821 and its moniker derives from a Delaware Indian village of the same name.
