Hi, Bo

Yes I do burn the irises and I did clean up real good last fall.  
It's about time to burn if I can just find a calm day to do it.  So 
hopefully, I won't have any trouble this year.  Other irisarians 
have told me that borers are much less of a problem in the country 
than they are in town.  I understand that they can migrate up to 7 
city blocks.
