Long awaited AIS Bulletin

Just a tad too long on the wait!! The AIS Youth are selling tee shirts as
a fundraiser and the deadline is tomorrow!! May 15!! 

This would make a great item to present to a Youth Division winner, or
as a local Auction item. ***


The information in the article Iris Borer Control (pgs 35 - 37) is very
interesting! Especially that "reduction of iris (clearwing borer moth) larvae

Nematode Hererorhabditis bacteriophora 887%  -- also an !!

a level where they are both cost effective andpractical for iris growers
to apply for control of iris borer.
