|Leaf cutter bees love rose leaves or just about any new, tender leaf in the spring. These hard working fellas are lining their nests with nice new leaf parts and they will be finished soon so just be patient. Bees are so important to our gardens that we just need to put up with their spring gathering ritual. They should be finished soon and you won't see any more damage to your rose leaves - until next spring.
