A Brief Historical Trip Through Venango's Past Pest Trends
Its name derives from the moniker given to the region by native-Americans, namely, Onenge meaning Otter, which was then corrupted in English as Venango. Created in March of 1800 from parts of Allegheny and Lycoming Counties, this once Indian Territory was ceded for white settlement at the “Last Purchase” of the Treaty of Fort Stanwix in 1784. Some fifty years before the treaty, the French had explored the area, and in 1753, they established a fort and claimed the territory for their king. They were later deposed by the English after the French and Indian War, who were also forced out of the area after many soldiers were killed in Pontiac’s Uprising in 1763.
Early Settlement and Pestilence Trends
For the intrepid pioneers combating pestilence was a daily battle. There were no established solutions to keep invading pests from eating the crops upon which they relied so heavily for sustenance. Effective pesticides were still many years away. Classical methods, which depended mostly on the whims of Mother Nature, were often deployed. Early farmers sometimes planted more crops than needed in the hopes that invading pests would leave the others alone. This method, as well as introducing natural predators of the invading insects to the area sometimes worked and often backfired.
After the Revolutionary War, a company of US soldiers came to build Fort Franklin, which was named after Benjamin Franklin and became the county seat. Lumbering, farming and later iron furnaces became the main industries of the region. In 1859, Colonel Drake struck oil and established the world's first successful oil well in the northern part of the county. It was a time when entrepreneurs and speculators rushed in to capitalize on the oil boom, which for more than 100 years fueled the county's economy.
Farming persisted in parts of the county, but pioneers on this remote frontier still lived too far away to take advantage of any new and improved pesticides that might have been available in bigger cities like Philadelphia, New York, Washington and Baltimore. Paris Green, a mineral paint developed in the mid-19th century, was a pesticide comprised of copper and arsenic that had successfully wiped out the potato weevil. It was supplanted a few years later by a lead arsenate and calcium, but since there were no federal regulations on pesticides, false and sometimes dangerous claims made by slick snake oil salesmen selling bogus products dominated the sale of pesticides until the dawn of the 20th century.
Venango County’s Most Famous Resident
A little girl name Ida Tarbell, who grew up to become an investigative journalist and a noteworthy 19th century muckracker, wrote a book, the History of Standard Oil. Born in Venango County, her father’s small business had been ruined by the greedy conglomerate started by John D Rockefeller, and her book help to promote legislation, which brought about the collapse of the monopoly known as Standard Oil in 1911.
Harry S. Truman opined, “There is nothing new in the world except the history you do not know.” As a business owner, you can’t afford not to influence your businesses “future” history, at least the one that’s being written or will be written in the form of online reviews. Maintaining positive online reviews over negative is a crucial part of any company’s longevity, repeat business and bottom line. Ensure every review is always as hygienically clean as your facility’s interior »
