Cut Back Iris Foliage
Trimming back iris foliage after a hard freeze will prevent iris borers from overwintering in you plants. Wait until the temperature has been 27 or lower for several hours before cutting off the foliage to insure that you get all the iris borer eggs. Good sanitation in and around your plants is the best protection from this insect.
