In the very informative excerpt from the Cornell Extension Bulletin 324 Mike
Lowe provided us is the following statement:
<< In our studies, eggs have been found pasted to practically
everything in the cages that had a roughened surface-twigs, dead leaves,
rusty nails, cloth, bits of wood, and wire screen. Only in one instance
were any eggs laid on fresh green iris leaves. >>
Now, for some time I have been trying to get an authoritative answer to
whether the borer lays eggs only on iris debris, or whether any debris will
do. I recently read something that indicated that they laid only on iris
matter. The Cornell finding sounds more plausible.
My question is this: Has the Cornell finding been superceeded?
Thank you so much, Mike. That was a really good article.
