Answer: If you don't see bugs, look closely for little green worms. They can completely strip a rose bush of foliage in a very short time. If you still cannot find the culprits I would suspect deer have been feasting on the foliage, especially if the stems remain but the green parts of the leaves are missing. There's really no control to suggest until you identify the culprits! Wish I had solutions to offer.
