We have huge infestations of borers in Wi some years. I've switched 
from Cygon 2E to Ortho's Lindane Borer Control (less toxic & less 
expensive) with a spreader-sticker sprayed on the leaves in spring.
Some folks will scoff, but have also had good luck interplanting 
marigolds. I can't explain why, but it has worked for me!
