State Park Official Praises Efforts of Abatement Districts Delegates to the 24th annual rhuge surface area that it can't M* - . _ (• TTj.^1. nir__^..:t-_ VA. • j-u-wnWlntAlir r»i*HMH*D/1 ' nP convention of Utah Mosquito Abatement Association came in for some unaccustomed praise as the two-day talks wound up this- morning at Weber State College. Dick Wolfley, superintendent of Great Salt Lake State Park on Antelope Island, said most people don't realize the type of job. mosquito control districts do in abatement, and expressed his thanks for work done in control' at his park. NOT AVAILABLE Monday afternoon Dr. Donald Spencer, ecologist of National Agricultural Chemicals Association,- such Washington, D.C., said districts "make it possible to tolerate marshlands .and wetlands where otherwise they wouldn't be available." Mr. Wolfley said Utah abatement- districts ringing the lake have; done an exceptional job of controlling ins_ect pests in his ; park area, with two problems of major proportions apparently insoluble. "The problems are Willard Bay,, where breeding areas are inaccessible by vehicle, and the lake itself, which has such a be completely covered, he said. -...,.- ....... . ...... Park workenrdo some spraying along 'Antelope Island, but are 'Stymied in their efforts by their legal -area. 2,000 ACRES "We have only 2,000 acres on the tip of the island, for the park — and that's all we can legally spray." Mr. • Wolfley said, adding that 26,000 acres down-island permit breeding for plenty of unwanted visitors within the park. He said midge flies, may flies and .brine flies are insects which can bother park -visitors along with the omnipresent mosquitoes. Helicopter spraying of brine flies, conducted. this summer as an experiment, appears to offer the most effective means of that form of insect •. Spencer presented slides and statistics to support his conclusion that mosquito abatement units — often maligned as destroyers of wildlife — actually enhance the prospects; of wild creatures by preserving their environment. A vast majority' of our na- on's population lives near the marshlands and wetlands which support wildlife most abundantly, *he said. BITING INSECTS Man finds biting insects one of the world's most intolerable tortures, and would destroy such mosquito-breeding areas by fills or draining if mosquitoes could not be otherwise controlled. The fact that abatement districts are able to control pests though sprays — as opposed to actual altering of the habitat — enables man to preserve valuable estuaries and swamps for -the natural home of wildlife. Dr. Spencer, reasoned. He said almost all forms of, •wildlife-in the United States I i have increased in the last 50 j years, with many species taken off the endangered list. "When I worked in Arizona years ago, there were only 75 antelope in the . entire state. This year the national antelope harvest was 75,000," he noted. Species which have been taken' -off protected 'or endangered lists either nationally or- by state include otter, sea otter, wild turkey, mourning dove and beaver, he added.
