However, these past few years they have been coming earlier.

Keep a watchful eye on your porch light at night, to see if the females are in flight and are mating. Ideally six weeks afterwards is when you should be treating. Your Texas Certified Nursery Professional at your local Independent Nursery will be able to help you select an appropriate pesticide.
