Actually, you can paint the Cygon on the TB's because it comes with
a painter in the bottle. But with the SIB's and JI's and other
irises with finer leaves spraying is better. It also stops iris bud
fly in the beardless irises so it's quite helpful. 

They chewed up a clump of I vriginica var schrevei. I lost about
half of the Tb's and a few of the JI's and SIB's. You could put a
lot of garic in a small section of your beds and spray or paint the
rest and see how it goes in the section with garlic.
