The Gypsy Moth & The Norway Rat
The western portion of this territory is covered by large stands of pine and hemlock trees. During the last decade, the destructive larvae of the Gypsy Moth that eat the leaves off these trees have at times threatened the security of Warren County’s forest land. As of this year, however, their population appears to be contained. Norway rats and house mice are structural pests, and rats remain a major threat to public health. Both require the service of an excellent exterminator like the professionals at Pestco.

Beaver County Historical Pest Trends
Created in March of 1800 from parts of Allegheny and Lycoming Counties, this once Indian territory was not formally organized until 1819. It name derives from General Joseph Warren, a prominent Boston physician who died a hero’s death at The Battle of Bunker Hill. Officially ceded for white settlement in 1784 as “The Last Purchase” of The Treaty of Fort Stanwix, the land is bordered on the north by New York State, McKean County on the east, on the west by Crawford and Erie and on the south by Venago and Forest Counties.
The French were the very first European explorers to visit the area and they traded with native-American populations in the late 1730s. Early settlement years, however, were marked by conflicts with the native-American Seneca tribe who were members of the powerful Iroquois nation and resented European intrusion into their sacred hunting grounds. They conducted hostile raids on the first wave of early white settlers who were mostly Scotch-Irish from Southeastern Pennsylvania well into the 1790s. Subsequent waves of immigrants hailed from Germany, Sweden and Italy.
Pioneer Period Pestilence Trends
For these brave and hardy pioneers, the native-Americans were only one force to reckon with in their daily struggles to survive. Combating pestilence was a frightful reality, as invading pests threatened both their health and food supplies. There were no precedents to suggest solutions for saving their crops of corn and squash and beans upon which they so heavily depended for their sustenance.
For the most part, these early settlers relied on classical methods for pest control and management as commercial pesticides were still many decades away. These practices depended mostly on the whims of Mother Nature, and sometimes they worked and sometimes they failed. One of their strategies was to plant more crops than they needed in the between the crop fields in the hopes that invading pests would leave the others alone. This method, as well as introducing natural predators of the invading insects was often ineffectual. They also anxiously awaited the annual arrival of migratory birds to stabilize insect populations, which they often did by traveling from field to field and consuming all types of insects.
From 1800 to 1900, lumber was abundant and it became a primary industry. Logs were floated down many available streams to markets where it could be sold. The agricultural industry developed slowly and concurrently with population growth, and prospered with the advent of first generation pesticides. The introduction of the Erie Railroad in 1859, followed by branches of the Pennsylvania and the New York Central, was a profitable boon to Warren County’s existing industries which included: oil refining, gas, furniture-making, metal, concrete and the manufacture of tobacco products. To this day, logging companies harvest second and third growth trees under strict regulation. Fifteen percent of the county is farmland today, and meat and dairy are vital to the economy.
