Agree, John.  I think Dorothy Willott posted EXCELLENT instructions just the 
other day on how this is done.  I forwarded this post to many non Iris-Talk 
people that are having problems controlling borers.  Thank you Dorothy!  Well 

People in zones without borers should be SO grateful.  It is hard to be 
working at a club iris sale when potential customers are told about borers 
from someone who had them and they come rushing up in a barrage of a million 
questions...It is such a negative.  The borer alone is responsible for 
deterring many from growing iris in our zone.  Many people are looking for 
"carefree" perennials (not that their IS such an animal...) and hear about 
garden cleanup, Cygon, erwinia, etc., etc. and running screaming into the 
streets.  :-)
