Thanks for the advice but I did state non chemical means or alternatives to chemicals. So far I have not used anything but organic food for my plants and I would like to keep it that way as I do not wish to absorb any systemics myself as I like to lounge about it the flowerbeds J

I am looking for alternatives to chemical control of iris borers here in the Midwest.

I grow an acre of tall bearded and also some Siberians. I found a lot of borer cocoons buried beneath a row of Siberians that I was moving this fall. I know borers can’t hurt the tiny rootlets of the Siberian but maybe they could be lures for overwintering?

I also heard about some nematodes that offer promise but don’t know where to find a supplier.

If any Irsarians know I would be appreciative.

Tom
