Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday. zu, Ask Andy YELLOW JACKETS Andv sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Janice Riggs age fl of Eugene, Oregon, tor her question What good are yellow jackets? The waspv yellow jackets as we know, are insects And the world of insects could get along very well, thank you, if there were no people in the world at all But people could not get along at all if the insects disappeared from the planet Earth Directh or indirectly plants depend on insects and without the plants the entire animal world would fail to survive It is true that the yellow- jacket has a waspv stinger and seems to be nothing more than a nasty nuisance But this is not the whole story To get the true picture, we must to see her role in the whole scheme of nature After all. Room spray vaporizer recalled WASHINGTON (AP) The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the recall Monday of an aerosol drug containing vinvl chloride an industrial chemical linked to a rare form of cancer The FDA said the Adams Drug Co Inc of Pawtucket, R I is recalling its Quick-Aid medicated room spray vapor- izer Adams is the third company asked by the FDA to recall spray cans containing vinyl chloride as a propellant Earlier Clairol Inc and Bo- nat Inc voluntarily recalled 22 brands of professional and Consumer hair sprays Vinyl chloride has been implicated in 10 known cases of angiosarcoma among industrial workers Flashback B> THE CANADIAN PRESS April 20, 1974 Canadian Prime minister Mackenzie King and U S President Franklin D Roosevelt issued the Hyde Park declaration on hemisphere defence and economic co-operation 33 years ago today in 1941 The declaration allowed Canada to procure certain raw materials from the United States to increase the nation's war effort let s lemember that any little thing that goes wrong in the global ecology is bound to upset our plans sooner or later For example, if there were no vellow jackets, the price of corn and so all corn products and meat from corn ted animals would be higher and inflation would be worse than it already is And this is not all In the central and eastern parts of North America a shortage of yellow jackets would create shortages ol certain other grains and field crops The large, gaily-striped yellow jacket can jab her fierce stinger into your flesh and inflict a tiery bump, true, but this is a rather small nuisance when we consider all the other duties she performs during her daily life The waspy yellow jackets eat overripe fruit and other soft vegetable foods But their main diet is the soft meat and juices of other insects As our fields of corn grow tall, the voung ears often are attacked b> a greedy caterpillar called the corn earworm This happens to be a favorite food of the yellow jacket who often feeds its juices to her voung Hence, with more yellow jackets around there are fewer corn earworms and more healthy ears of corn Another favorite food of the vellow jacket is the devouring armvworm of Central and Eastern North America These armvworms are moth caterpillars that hatch in multitudes and march across the fields devouring young grains and otner tender crops There are not enough yellow jackets to destroy all the teeming armvworms, but they do reduce the teeming ho-.des Dozens of different moth and butterfly caterpillars attack numerous plants in our fields and gardens. And a mortal enemy of one and all is the yellow jacket who also disposes of many maggots that otherwise would become pesky house flies If we judge the handsome yellow jacket merely by her sting, we have to admit she is a bad tempered pest But to be fair, we must include all the evidence of her more general usefulness Then we must regard her as an ally, for she reduces the populations of many pesky grubs that devour our held and garden crops And when there are shortages ol these foods, they cost more Hence, you might say that the vellow jacket does a little bit to help control inflation Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
