Re: Iris borer

John, What Chris might mean is that the moth doesn't eat anything in the
adult stage (like any moth, that's one of the reasons they are called moth)
it's the larvae stage (worm, caterpillar, sort of thing, white with brown
head, any size from pinhead to 2" depending on when it's birthday was)
Chris is celebrating, I think, someone's birthday, maybe it's five hundred
borers, who knows. You'd think he'd offer some to the rest of us!!
It's the larvae sstage that eats the iris and that's when you have some chance
of nuking them with cygon, or your fingers.
