I am in the same region as you and I have borers big time this year.  Unfortunately, I can't find the Bayer Merit product.  Anything else I can use?

By the way, are you associated with Greenfield Farms?  I have done business with them through the garden store I worked at as a perennial buyer.

Adam it is not a borer. They have not hatched yet in your area. Some say they winter over but I have not seen proof. I have never seen one eat a hole like yours either.
Photo shows the difference.
