My current bottle of Cygon 2E recommends about 4 tsp per gallon for garden blooms. I include irises in this group. However, I do not use 4 tspns but 2 tsps per gallon and that seems to last 3-4 months in the greenhouse and garden. I always try to use the least amount of insecticide I can get away with and this amount seems to work, at least for me. My main pest problems, if and when, have been aphids. For borers I would consider using 4 tspns per gallon. I do not even know if here, in California, we have a problem with iris borers?

This is off a bottle I bought about 5 years ago. I did not know it was this old. One application and no borers since.
This is too hard to read with out making photo huge. Left side says:
