No I meant if I moved all my plants to AZ i would eliminate the problem - it was a joke, or maybe I should move?

Can you provide the picture of the trap and instructions how to build it. Between the bats and traps and moving to Arizonia I might lick this problem :)

Would it be possible to genetically engineer a TB iris against borers? This seems like a useful thing. I noticed that some of iris are not as susceptible to borers as others ? maybe they taste different? Could you breeders turn on that gene switch? That might

Be as desirable to the gardening public rather than a truly red iris or spoons and it would make a great plant even greater and more fully functional.

Subject: RE: [iris-photos] Discussion on Iris borers

Thanks for the advice but I did state non chemical means or alternatives to chemicals. So far I have not used anything but organic food for my plants and I would like to keep it that way as I do not wish to absorb any systemics myself as I like to lounge about it the flowerbeds J

Subject: [iris-photos] Discussion on Iris borers

I am looking for alternatives to chemical control of iris borers here in the Midwest.

I grow an acre of tall bearded and also some Siberians. I found a lot of borer cocoons buried beneath a row of Siberians that I was moving this fall. I know borers can?t hurt the tiny rootlets of the Siberian but maybe they could be lures for overwintering?

I also heard about some nematodes that offer promise but don?t know where to find a supplier.

If any Irsarians know I would be appreciative.

Tom
