The Q&A Archives: Roses -

Question: We have the Knockout Roses , less than a year old, and the leaves are full of holes, what insect(s) could be doing this, and what should be used to get rid of them. Thanks

Answer: Lots of different insects like to feed on rose leaves so I can't really isolate the culprit and suggest a control. On the other hand, you can use a broad-spectrum product formulated especially for roses and it should take care of present and future damage. One such product is Ortho's Rose Defense. When applied according to label directions it will protect your roses from common insect and disease problems. Good luck with your roses.
