It seems to me that a Iris Borer pheromone could be developed if someone
had the scientific know how and money.  Perhaps this could be a project
for the Scientific Committee of the American Iris Society.  Just think,
all you would have to do would be to hang traps around your iris garden
and be protected.  Surely this could be within our reach.
