There has been little or no effort in recent months to control the insect but that may soon change. Some southeastern states already have renewed fire ant con- trol programs and the State Department of Agriculture says it plans to begin its pro- gram again in Alabama this fall. The effectiveness of the program in this state, how- ever, hinges on a $250,000 appropriation which has not yet been approved by the Alabama Legislature. The fire ant program has been on-again, off-again since 1972 as a result of a constant legal battle between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Pro- teetion Agency on the chemi- cal, Mirex. In fact, the battle be- came so heated, and dragged out for so long, Allied Chem- ical withdrew from the Mirex hearings. Mirex, of course, is the most effective pesticide for controlling fire ants. After spending millions of dollars and four and one- half years defending the regis- tration of Mirex, Allied Chemical said it could no longer justify the time and expense involved with the hearings on the chemical.

The imported fire ant was introduced into this country in 1918 by a ship docking at Mobile, Ala. Since that time, the ant has in- fested millions of acres in the southern United States. It was first thought that the ant could survive no further north than the mid- United States, but scientists have recently said that the imported fire ant could reach as far north as the U.S. Canadian border. Some environmentalists have questioned the impact of Mirex, but without it larger quantities of less ef- fective compounds would be required to achieve safe pas- tures, fields, roadsides, and towns. No other compound has proven as effective in the control of the fire ant within her nest. At the same time, this is the only compound which shows the minimum amount of adverse effect on the environment. The fire ant program which is to begin in Ala- bama this fall is expected to take place in the counties of Clay, Cleburne, Cherokee, Calhoun, Blount, Marshall, Etowah and St. Clair.

The Mayor does not participate. Over the last years there have been only a few such hearings. Such a case was the Maxwell-Gates situation when the presiding officer, the Mayor Pro Tern, allowed the meeting to get our of control into an explosive atmosphere leading to the confrontations between the Ott Council members and the Police Department. I did not, as mayor, participate in the hearing.
