Here in the Chicago area we have to lift and bring in our tender bulbs,
like the Elephant Ears.  I store mine under the bench in the greenhouse
which runs about 60 degrees F through the winter.  In late winter I
start to observe colonies of aphids on the "sprout" ends of the
which then want to spread to the rest of the greenhouse.  Has anyone has
success with sanitizing tubers/bulbs for problems like this?  Sprays
don't control them, at least none of the sprays I want to use in a
closed environment like this.
