Several potentially damaging insects are currently prevalent in East Texas, according to Dr. James Robinson, area entomologist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. This is the time of year for carpenter ants and termites to swarm. Both of these pests can be damaging if left un- controlled. Robinson says that the homeowner can distinguish between the two by observing a few distinct dif- ferences. Termites usually swarm after spring rains and appear to have two body segments. Carpenter ants appear to have three body segments.

Oak leucanium is very prevalent in some areas. This is a large brown globular scale about one-half the size of a pea and can be found on the limbs of oak trees. The best time to control the oak leucanium is when the crawler stage appears. Additionally, Robinson says that the giant bark aphid is currently feeding in clusters on oaks and related species. This aphid is dark, soft bodied and has wings. Insecticides are available for the con- trol of all the above insects.

"Unfortunately, not everyone cooperated," he added. "During a 10- day period while our fire danger alert was in effect, an individual, or group of individuals, set 61 fires in northern Newton County. These fires burned 1,400 acres of forest, a hunting camp and a mobile home. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these fires." With some forecasters predicting a repeat of last year's drought, Burton fears that this year's already high fire damage totals might balloon even higher. He indicated that timely rains and continued fire safety consciousness by the general public were necessary to avoid a repeat of last year's fire problems. become more energy-independent.. ~nd ~.,Ir We Americans learn early to be independent tod)'"r, elianr, and to use the resources we h~)ve.
