Re: malathion against borer??

Sorry, but the borer will drink malathion for lunch and not even burb....it
is of no use based on my experience.  I once did a test putting borers in
mason jars in which I added Cygon 2E to one, malathion to one and bleach to
the third.  The borer in the bleach jar died almost instantly.  The one in
the Cygon died in a couple of hours.  The one in the malathion was still
alive the next day.  Clarence Mahan
