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
erradication.

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.
