Bertha army worms to hit three Alberta crop areas EDMONTON Only three small areas of Alberta are expected to suffer infestations of Bertha jrmyworms in rapeseed crops Lhis a provincial agriculture department spokesman said today. Mike a Icpartrncnt pest control said Alberta's 'apcseed producers this or the first time since should be of insect problems. A pupal survey last fall indicated p'ossible light infestations in the Bluesky- Bon Accord arid Strathmore districts. these predicted infestations may not materialize if the Bertha armyworm populations was reduced last winter or if this season's weather is unfavorable for their Mr. Dolinski said. He said the reason for the decrease not really but that disease and parasites could have a major effect on the armyworm population. A severe outbreak of the pest occurred in 1971. Mr. Dolinski said the department will continue to monitor the armyworm population during the coming season.
