Borers are also controlled by parasitic wasps. I think ichneumans
particularly. Anything you can do to provide nectaries for the
adults--probably flowers related to dill (Apaceae Family). They used
to be a major pain for me until I put large numbers of flowers into the
landscape that attract beneficial wasps. Water year round helps too.
