From the few years of research I have been doing on the borer, I have found that it seems they only thrive in areas where the humidity is high.  Borers are found in Joplin Mo, but not in Tulsa or points south.  Only change is in humidity.  Borers are found in Kansas City but not in Wichita or points west.  Again, only change is  humidity. East and south into Georgia there is high humidity.  I would like to see further research on where they are and where they are not.  Perhaps we might be able to get some kind of a map together.  That would be of interest and certainly educational.

If there arenít any iris borers in Australia, it is worth any amount of quarantine to keep them out.  So far there are none in southern Arizona.  It is just too hot for them.  At 114 degrees F. itís almost too hot for irises and people too.

Rhonda, as a matter of hygene whenever i cut a rhizome, i always dip
the cut edges in Flowers of Sulphur. This is a proven natural way to
prevent the spread of fungus and other diseases. As yet i have not
come across this borer but i would certainly try the Flowers of Sulphur
and as you said keep a close eye on the plants in Spring. Best of luck
