Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HEKAID Wednciday, November II, 1970------ Another passenger in the car, tarry Brisbin, 21, also of Burnaby was not damaged extensively._________________-------_____------------ lylaw asked on beetle infestation By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writer FORT MACLEOD The town of Fort Macleot" has given first reading to a bylaw which will provide for the control and eradication of the red flour, saw tooth, and rusty grain beetles. The call for the bylaw came a the result of a petition pre- sented recently to the town council by a committee of citi- zens plagued by the insects. Apparently the trouble start- ed during the past summer, when favorable weather condi- tions allowed for the rapid re- production of the beetles. A grocery store owner, s feedmill manager and several homeowners in the town no- ticed grain, flour and cereals had been infested. The beetle numbers have dropped off with the onslaught of colder weather. The insects die rapidly when exposed to freezing tempera- tures. John Van Sluys, manager of the feedmill believes some of the beetles rojy have entered the mill aboard loads of poor quality feed grain. Damp or tough grain is subject to heat- ing and as a result may pro- vide favorable egg-laying con- ditions for the insects. Mr. Van Sluys said when he discovered the beetles, fumiga- tion of, the mill's storage facili- ties was carried out and the problem seemed to be allevi- ated. However homeowners incon-i Another woman had to throw venienced by the bugs feel dif- away 200 pounds of Jlour which fcrently. One housewife saJd she found the beetles in cereals, macaro- ni, flour and various other foods. "We had to wash our fell prey to the insects, and spent on pesticides and furnigants.

Jack Chilton, Alberta Wheat Pool agent, feels if there was a heavy concentration ot the rusty grain beetle in particu- lar, the elevators would be the first places hit. He added that elevator regu- lations specify no grain will be shipped or received if insect in- festations are evident. Mr. Cliilton said, despite re- cent statements made by the Canada Grains Commission stating that the rusty grain beetle is widespread through- out western tie grain responsible for the outbreak is not coining from southern Al- berta." Jim Burger, health officer at the Chinook Health Unit in Fort U NoVS'and Wed- Macleod, said the occurrence such large and probably of the beetli numbers is rare, r-------- attributable to favorable breed- ing conditions. Ha adds that no real health hazard is likely to arise from the beetle infestations. Officials of the Lethbridge Research Station say they do not think the Fort Macleod situation has anything to do with the current world prob- lems with the rusty grain beetle. Phil Blakeley, information of- ficer for the station says con- trol of the insects may be ef- MAVFAIR-VOOUE'S NOVEMBER COAT SALE M1N1S-MIDIS KNEE LENGTH, LENGTHS and JACKETS Choose The length You Like At Prices You Will Love FUR TRIMMED AND UNTRIMMED WINTER COATS 4995 99 Coats are mink, muskrat, and fox trimmed, imported wools and plaids, untrimmed.

Mr, Bland said that plans were to get the renovations under way as soon as possible. "The actual physical work is quite negligible, consisting of knocking out doors and he said. "The basic cost will be in the plumbing which is al- ways a problem in that hospi- tal because ot its construction." While the board was happy with the assistance from the govern ment, it was to be viewed as only a stop-gap mea- sure in a long-range program, Mr Bland said.
