FABBI OPTOMETRIST 314 8th Street South APPOINTMENTS PHONE District's provincial parks squeezed in overflow crowds White campers were being turned away from Waterton National Park last weekend, provincial parks In the Leth- bridge area were squeezing in overflow crowds. All provincial parks con- tacted reported their camp- grounds were full and added that all campers were accom- modated. The Taber Provincial Park, with facilities for 40 to 50 campers, has had capacity crowds most weekends this year. The warden of the Taber park said no campers are turned away despite crowded conditions. "We have handled 100 with no one he said. The park is expanding its facilities to handle about 85 campers before the end of the summer. Alberta farmers warned about another rape pest Rapeseed producers in Al- berta are now facing another agricultural pest the' alfal- fa looper caterpillar and are being urged to check their fields at .least until July 15 for possible, out- breaks. Bob Dixon, head of the Al- berta Department of Agricul- tiira plant industry depart- ment laboratory, says re- ports of the alfalfa looper in- festations have been received from the Vulcan district in Southern Attwrta and from the Grande Prairie, Fort Ver- milion, High Prairie and Val- leyview regions in the north. The pest to 1% inches long, light to olive green in color with light strips on each rapeseed crops in Alberta and commercial lettuce crops in British Col- umbia. Neil Holmes, head of the crop entomology section at the Lethbridge Research Sta- tion, said some of the pests have been reported in Leth- bridge gardens, mostly in let- tuce plants. Mr. Dixon says it is ex- tremely important when checking for alfalfa loopers to examine the whole plant because the immature cater- pillars often feed on the un- derside of the leaves. When mature, they move to. the tops of the plants to feed on blossoms and newly de- veloping pods. There is no registered che- mical for controlling the loop- ers although trials being con- ducted ip Edmonton show Ian- ante and lorsban at the rates recommended for Bertha armyworm control are effec- tive. Dr. Holmes said any gar- dener finding a looper near yard plants should try to hand pick them, from the garden area and put them in the garbage. He said insecticides which' can be used for commercial crops aren't feasible for gar- dens.
