After a (too) long absence from the list (my computer refused to
dial-up) I'm back! Today, I went out to strip some dead leaves off of
all the new irises I'd planted. Whilst fervently working, I noticed a
nasty orange-colored segmented worm with red at one end of it's wormy
body. Being the good little irisarian that I am, I transported this
nasty little critter to my driveway, then repeatedly bashed his head in
with a rock. My question: was this a borer? I didn't think they could
survive here in Fort Worth, TX (USDA 7b, AIS region 17.) Sunset Zone
thirty-three I think.
Did I do the right thing?
