Just like aphids on myrtles even with sooty mold because of high populations, they will naturally shed their insect. June -July another story.

Unnecessary treatments are to be avoided under IPM but I do not see anywhere advocating the use of off label use of any product.
I have actually sat down with the folks in Crystall City, VA on more than one occasion. I have a pretty good grip on IPM.
