Page 4 The Woodville Republican, Thursday, May 21, 2015 Randy Bell & Molli Douglass Buffalo Gnats Or Black Flies CA, WCCA Compete In Win Eagle Awards At Hinds CC Randy Bell from Wood- ville and Molli Douglass of Clinton were the winners of the prestigious Eagle and Lady Eagle Awards at the annual Hinds Community College athletic awards rec- ognition that was held in Cain-Cochran Hall on Tues- day airnoon. Bell and Douglass re- ceived these awards based on their achievements in the classroom, in the community and on the playing field. Bell, a sophomore base- ball player who will continue his academic and athletic ca- reer next season at the Uni- versity of South Alabama, has been selected to the Pres- ident's & Dean's List with a 3.82 GPA and is a mem- ber of Phi Theta Kappa and Who's Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges. He is also a baseball team captain and a devoted mem- ber of the Hinds Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). On the playing field, he was named to the 2014 Missis- sippi Association of Com- munity and Junior Colleges (MACJC) All- State second team as a freshman and is currently 10-0 with a 2.42 ERA in 67 innings pitched for the No. 1 ranked Eagles. Bell, who joins Caleb Up- ton (2014) and Nathan Ault- man (2013) in giving the Hinds baseball program three consecutive Eagle Award win- nets, has also served in many capacities through community service, including twice par- ticipating in a fundralser for the Blair E. Batson Children's Hospital and with numerous campus pancake breakfasts, as well as volunteering in the annual Fun Run. Douglass, a sophomore catcher on the Hinds softball team, is a member of Phi Theta Kappa and Who's who Among Students in Ameri- can Junior Colleges for her 3.73 GPA. UMB Girls Softball Wins 3 Of 5 One Week, Play One Game Week The 10 and under United MAssLppi Bank Woedville girl's softball team had a full week with five games played and winning three out of five. On Monday, May 4, the UMB team was handed their first loss of the season, losing to Mag Caf6 by a score of 5 to 4. Losing pitcher was Mallory ForcL A lack of offense doomed UMB as they could only man- age 2 hits, one each by Anna Charlotte Redhead and Donika Ford. On Tuesday, May 5, UMB bounced back to sweep a dou- ble header. In game one UMB scored 10 runs to defeat Relocation Cen- ter which managed to plate 3 runs. Winning pitcher Anna Char- lotte Redhead threw a one hit- ter as her teammates played great defense behind her. [ ing UMB at the plate were Ava Randall, Brooke Straight, Mary Allyn McGraw, Brooke Baker and Cassidy Yarbrough with one hit each. In game two the UMB team took the field against Mag Caf6 and won 83. The winning pitcher was Anna Charlotte Redhead, who again pitched a one hitter. As has become the norm for UMB, their defense was the star of the game. Leading LiMB at the plate were Redhead and Straight with 2 hits each and Mal- lory Ford, Calecas, Ashley and Adison Summers with one hit eacl The UMB girls faltered in the second game of the day with a 3-2 loss to Mag Caf6. Losing pitcher Brooke Straight allowed only 2 hits but had control problems and walked 7. UMB scored both their runs in the 1st inning and couldn't get its offense going the rest of the evening. Straight led UMB with 2 hits and Redhead and Ashley had one hit each. Rain and schedule changes had the United Mississippi Bank 10 and under softball playing only one game last week. They defeated Reloca- tion Center 7-5 in a hard fought battle. Errors, which are unusual Submitted by Ann H. Davis, Wilkinson County Extension Coordinator/Agent With the arrival of hot weather, outdoor enthusi- asts and animals alike are finding themselves plagued by insects the moment they step outdoors. The most com- mon culprit in our area is the mosquito. But in recent years, another culprit found in areas near running water has been the black fly, also known as buffalo gnat. Mis- sissippi has at least two buf- falo gnat species - the south- ern buffalo gnat, Cnephia pecuarum, and the turkey gnat, Simuliim meridionale. Buffalo gnats are small (up to one-eighth of an inch long) dark flies that typically appear in late spring and early summer when they swarm and bite birds and mammals, including domes- tic animals and people. Males and females feed on nectar. The male gnats do not bite, but females of most species must feed on blood to produce eggs. Like horse and deer flies, black flies bite using their mouthparts like scissors to cut into skin and lap up the blood. This re- sults in painful bites that can produce bleeding, itching, inflammation and swelling, as well as allergic reactions that can be life-threatening. The flies may enter noses, ears and mouths, causing further discomfort. Domestic animals, especially poultry and exotic birds, can be killed by black fly attacks causing blood loss, suffocation when flies are inhaled,;,anaphylac- tic shock, toxemia, or injury to animals trying to flee at- tacking swarms. Buffalo gnats are aquatic insects that typically prefer clean, fast-running water. Females lay hundreds of tri- angular eggs in or near the water. Some crawl beneath the surface to deposit eggs on sub- merged objects such as rocks. The worm-like larvae hatching from these eggs are typically less than haft an inch long and shaped like an hourglass. A newly hatched black fly larva produces sticky silk to anchor itself to underwater objects. It then  down- stream on a strand of silk un- til it locates a suitable object such as a stone.

The larva will grow and develop into a pupa. An adult black fly emerges from the pupal co- coon and reaches the water's surface by crawling up an object or by floating to the surface in a bubble of air. Adults will fly 10 miles or more in search of blood, though they are most com- monly encountered close to the water sources where they develop. The flies are attract- ed to the carbon dioxide ex- haled by people and animals, and also to perspiration, fra- grances and dark, moving objects. They are most ac- tive just after sunrise and before sunset on calm days, but have been known to be active well into the night. Avoiding infested areas at these times is the best means of preventing bites. You can help prevent bites outdoors by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and a hat with netting designed to keep flies off the head'and neck. Some have suggested wearing construc- tion-type hard hats, smeared with oil or petroleum jelly, to reduce biting and inca- pacitate flies that land on the hat. In patio settings and open structures where live- stock are kept, large fans can be operated to help deter the flies. If netting is used to screen off an area, it must be of very fine mesh because black flies can penetrate most window screens. Black flies are difficult to repel. Suggested "home rem- edy" repellents, such as va- nilla extract, have not been scientifically proven effec- tive. DEET-containing repel- lents that deter mosquitoes are much less effective at repelling black flies and have even been reported to attract the flies. Permethrin-con- taining repellents labeled for apphcation only to clothing offer some protection. The apphcation of pesticides for black fly control often meets with limited success. Fogging in the form of ultra-low vol- ume (ULV) treatments like those used for mosquito con- trol can be useful in some circumstances, but provide only temporary rehef.

ZOFRAN BIRTH DEFECTS Zofran has been prescribed to pregnant patients to control nausea or "morning sickness". Troubling new evidence demonstrates that Zofran has been associated with increased risks of certain birth defects during pregnancy. When taken during the first trimester of pregnancy, the Zofran exposed fetus is allegedly at risk for developing cleft palates, certain heart and kidney defects and other injuries. Recently, the FDA has strongly cautioned against Zofran use in pregnancy.
