Botanist Locates Source Of Insect Pest DES MOINES. <UJR>—A botanist who went-wading in the Big Sioux river instead of looking for bugs in a more orthodox manner Wednesday was receiving the plaudits of the entire town of Akron. For sev..-al summers residents of Akron had been plagued by tiny black bags. They were vicious biters and small children especially were victims of the p?sts. Children with swollen faces from bites of the bugs were a common sight in the town. Work horses were driven frantic hy the pests and haby chicks often were killed by them. Many believed the bugs were brought into the district with some Texas cattle purchased oy feeders several years ago. Dr. A. L. Bakke Iowa State college botanist at Hawarden's weed control station, beard of the bugs believed they were Buffalo black bugs. One day to satisfy his curiosity he drove to Akron, donned hip boots and waded the river in search of the source of the infestation. His belief was verified when he found larvae of the bugs clinging to rocks that once had formed a milldam across the stream. He notified Secretary of Agriculture Ray Murray and State Entomologist C. J. Drake of his discovery, who immediately took steps to free the town of its annual infestation. A solution of the problem can be worked out merely by removing the remnants of the old da-" which has proved a breeding place for the ougs, Secretary Murray said. A meeting of Akron residents, South Dakota state officials and Iowa officials will be held Thursday at which time arrangements probably will be completed for dismantling of the old dam. According to tentative plans, the work may be done by Civilian Conservation corps workers, according the Secretary Murray. Special to the Tribune-Times.
