> Thanks for this tidbit, Chuck.  I was suspecting this, but didn't

> borers.

> Anybody know of a good website for identifying different types of
> borers?  Now that I'm hunting for iris-borers, I'm seeing more stalk
> borers.  Just curious to learn more about what they are and their
> ecology.
>
> The most abundant type has a chocolate brown 'saddle' in the middle,
> with very dark (black looking) stripes on white or cream ground color on
> both sides of the saddle.   The big ones are longer than iris borer
> larvae but skinnier and much more wiggley.
>
> Today, I found two huge different ones in the ridgetop "garden" that
> were proportioned more like iris-borer larvae, but also more wiggley,
> with broken brown stripes on a cream ground with a tan head.
>
> Both of these were very active, rapidly trying to escape up or down the
> hollowed out stalk as I broke off bits of it trying to corner them.
> I've not seen either of these in iris foliage, but have seen one
> iris-borer in the base of a fat stalk.
