Hi Roy:
When I lived in Northwest Connecticut, both narcissus fly species in our area had, in most years, laid their eggs by the end of May, most certainly by the middle of June. But the Cyrtanthus species were also highly susceptible to mealy bugs, so I settled on a regime that included an Imadicloprine drench twice a year.
