Oh yes they do!!! and John NO . i would never send anyone the hated dreaded 
damn borer.  I believe the importation of the english sparrow caused the 
demise of the eastern bluebird population, coupled with DDT in the 50's. 
Which is only now making any comeback.
My fear is that my iris's be charged with introdcing the borer to my part of 
town. And me with an attempt to commit murder of every single borer I see. 
However if I could get them to all wiggle into a bait box, I would seal it up 
and send them to .........France.
