Neem Oil is. Applied as a drench, or several sprayings, it is systemic.

Borers are inside hollow stems.
They lay eggs at base of stems , near ground, be sure to spray there, and look for eggs there, and squish them. If any holes in base stem, hold lite behind stem and go up stem till you see one of the booger's, then slice the vine, with the grain, and get the booger out, and, squish/kill ! You can tape cut.
There could allways more, up same, or other stems.

Ttfn 😀
