    Thanks Louis, already done. Is it safe to assume that physan, listerine, neem oil, and pyrethrin (not all at once!) will take care of pretty much anything I really need to worry about for any of the orchids?

    Oh my, those look nothing like the holes in my pb. It does look like something has been snacking on it. Did you repot yet?

    Yeah, I repotted it, Traci. Twice. It fell over once because it's so top heavy that I had to put it in something else. I think they'll be okay. I didn't see anything in the mix; I've flushed physan and insecticide in the holes and given them a good spraying with both. I'll just watch it to make sure the holes don't grow bigger or multiply. I'll be sure to report if that happens. Or if little baby weevils come crawling out of the pbs one day.
