Help with deleting NParticles

Hey Guys, Is there a way in Maya for deleting individual Nparticles from an Nparticle system, but after cashing off dynamic simulation?

I know how to do it before it was cashed/baked ....

I already have solved dynamic simulation that i like a lot but sadly there are quite a few particles at the back of the scene that are behaving wrongly and i would like to delete them without afecting whole simulation ...

is this possible?

any suggestion is welcome

Thanks in advance
Best Regards

I think you cant delete indivisual particle in maya , you can play with position or lifespan attribute of particle which you want to avoid or you can use surface and then make collision event and make then die ...
