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:
  For housefly Control in Dairy Barns, Pig Parlors, Loafing Sheds, Poultry Houses, Calf Barns and Feed Lots.
  Residual Wall Spray---Mix 1 gallon of Cygon 2-E in 25 Gallons of water( 1 pt in 3 gallons) Thoroughly wet all fly resting areas to the point of run-off. One gallon of spray will cover 500 to 1000 sq ft of wall or ceiling surface. Other areas where flies gather, such as around corrals should be sprayed thoroughly. Repeat applications as necessary.
  Remove animals and poultry from buildings when applying residual wall sprays.
  Spot Sprays-- Mix 1 pint of Cygone 2-E in 2 1/2 gallons of water. Apply with compressed air or knapsack type sprayer to areas around doorways. windows, alleyways, feed rooms, and other fly resting spots. Repeat as necessary=
