CULT - cygon
Thanks to Dorothy and Kathy for New York Info on borers. You are a babe in
the woods until you pull up a clump and see those fat worms housed in every
rhizome in the clump.
I read several postings on the hosta mail list on cygon. In the midwest
members are spraying hosta beds with cygon and claiming complete slug
Therefore - cygon as a contact poison rather than systemic is a use. Perhaps
it can be effective in both capacities. I am positive it cleaned up mites on
phlox clumps sprinkled in spring on low growth. Or, maybe there were no mites
last year and no-one told me.
