The Q&A Archives: Pin holes in rose bush leaves

Question: My rose bushes have small pin holes in the leaves only. What is causing this and what can I do to prevent this. Thank you.

Answer: Small holes can be the work of flea beetles. The pests are probably already gone so inspect the leaves for signs of the tiny pests. If you find any, you can use a product such as Rose Defense which is neem oil based and has some residual effect.
